Is DealDash Legit? Read About 2022 Customer Reviews.

You know the saying, “If it sounds too good to be true, then run away as fast as you can.” If a Moroccan Prince emails you out of the blue and says he is holding millions of dollars in escrow for you, then you probably should click that “delete email” button as fast as you can. The same goes for grand promises made by money managers and fly-by-night investment companies. If they promise to double your money in just days, then you probably are dealing with a classic pyramid scheme. What about DealDash? Is DealDash legit?

DealDash is 100% legit and offers savings on brand new items.
Be careful if something sounds too good to be true!

Some of our auctions really do seem too good to be true, but we also claim to be fair and honest. So what gives? Do customers really have the fair opportunity to win auctions for brand name merchandise for a tiny fraction of the retail price? Does DealDash deliver on the fun and savings that are promised, or is it yet another entry in a long line of things that are too good to be true?

DealDash PS5 For Only $0.50 – Too Good To Be True?

DealDash advertises a PlayStation 5 console being sold for only $0.50.

You might have seen the ad on TV about the PlayStation 5 that was sold for $0.50 on DealDash. 50 cents? There must be something fishy going on with a price like that. Maybe there are some hidden fees? Surely this is not all that the customer paid for the PS5 on DealDash? What about shipping costs?

Read on as we go in to detail on how the end price of an auction is formed.

The $0.50 PlayStation 5 Console…

…and a 55-inch TV! In July 2021 a DealDash bidder couldn’t believe their eyes as they only placed 2 bids to win the auction for a bundle of the brand new PS5 console and a 55″ TV.

The total cost of that auction for the winner was the final auction win price of $0.10 + an estimated $0.20 per bid they placed. And shipping is always free on DealDash!

Your Go-To Place For Gaming Deals

In addition to the PlayStation consoles you’ll regularly find auctions for the new Xbox Series X consoles and full home theatre bundles together with TV’s and audio systems.

And if you are in search of hand held gaming devices, you will find us auctioning the Nintendo Switch Lite consoles often too. No gaming setup is perfect without a pair of gaming headphones with a microphone and a curved display. Be sure to check out the auctions!

The Math Behind The 50¢ PS5

There have been articles opening up the math behind auctions on DealDash in the past. On DealDash the total cost for the winner consists of the auction end price and any pre bought bids they placed in the auction. There’s absolutely no hidden costs involved!

A total of 40 PlayStation 5 consoles have been auctioned on DealDash by the time of writing this blog (Jan 2022). On average the winner has saved over 60% off the Buy It Now price of the auction including the cost of bids.

We have Our New Year’s Resolutions Ready, Do You?

December is quickly passing by, and it is just about time for 2021 to come to a close. That means that you are probably busy looking for a new quirky wall calendar for 2022. Or maybe you are doing some last minute holiday shopping, or getting an early start on your New Year’s Resolutions.

Do you follow the tradition of making New Year’s Resolutions? Nowadays, the practice of making promises or commitments to begin a new year is the most popular in the United States, but the tradition itself comes from old practices from all over the world.

A person sits with pen, paper, and a cup of coffee to write their New Year's Resolutions.
Do you plan on making any New Year’s Resolutions this year?

The month of January is named after the ancient god Janus, which the Romans worshiped. It was common in Roman culture to honor Janus by making promises to him at the beginning of the year. In medieval times, knights would also renew their commitment to virtue and chivalry by taking peacock vows after Christmas. These vows did not involve colorful birds with huge feathers, but are just another way to describe resolutions.

DealDash resolves to bring you a lot more of the things you already love…

For some folks, choosing their New Year’s Resolutions is tough! Should they focus on dropping a few pounds? Saving some more money? Chasing their dreams? Perhaps quitting a bad habit is the best choice. According to a poll published by Statista.com, the most popular resolution of 2021 was to get fit and exercise more. Some other New Year’s Resolutions included in the poll results were to volunteer to help a local charity, and to spend less time on social media.

A lot of folks are resolving to spend less time on social media for their New Year’s Resolution.

Here at DealDash, we think that all of these New Year Resolutions are great, and anyone who tries to set one as a goal and follow it has our respect. As far as DealDash goes, we already have our 2022 New Year’s Resolutions in place:

Cyber Monday Week Is Still Here!

Do you have the Black Friday blues? Are you afraid that the best shopping days of the year have passed you by? After all, the biggest shopping day of the year for brick and mortar stores, Black Friday, has come and gone. And Cyber Monday, the biggest day of the year for online shopping, is over this year, too. Cyber Monday takes place every year on the Monday that follows Thanksgiving. This year it was on November, 29th. It is the day when online retailers offer their biggest discounts of the year to try and entice holiday shoppers. It is a relatively new event, having been around for only 16 years or so. In fact, the original iteration of Cyber Monday looked a bit different.

A computer screen searched for Cyber Monday Deals on the internet.
If you are sad that Cyber Monday is over, check out DealDash this week!

One online flower shop tried marketing White Wednesday as a shopping event for Americans to enjoy before Thanksgiving, but it did not catch on. Perhaps folks were too worried about what stuffing recipe they were going to use, or if deep frying their turkey would be a tasty idea, or just a terrible one.

You might be asking why you are reading all about Cyber Monday if it has already passed this year. It’s a bit early to get excited for Cyber Monday 2022-edition, right? Well, good news. The DealDash Team realized that all the promotions, auctions and deals for Cyber Monday could not be packed into a single day, so we extended our celebrations to be an entire week! Right now on DealDash it is Cyber Monday Week, so pull up a chair and pull out your favorite bidding device and get on DealDash ASAP to see what all the fuss is about!

Follow the leader

One exciting part of DealDash’s Cyber Monday Week Sale is the Leaderboard Auctions. Leaderboard Auctions are a special twist on the normal DealDash auctions that you know and love.

These auctions work as normal, but with one special twist; a leaderboard has been added to the auction page! The leaderboard will display the name of the bidders who have collected the most TAHB (Time as Highest Bidder) in that auction.

A chalk board with talleys keep track of the score during a competition
Leaderboard Auctions track the amount of TAHB time bidders earn in an auction and reward the top finishers!

When the auction ends, the three bidders who have collected the most TAHB in that auction will earn additional bid rewards!

More free bids during Cyber Monday Week

Cyber Monday Week on DealDash gives you the opportunity to earn more free bids than normal! Each day, the Time As Highest Bidder meter has a bonus multiplier attached to it. Some days it is 2X, other days it is 3X, and if you happen to visit DealDash on the right day during Cyber Monday Week, you will see even a 4X multiplier!

Just bid in the auctions as you normally do, and collect 2X, 3X or 4X on your TAHB meter!

Just visit DealDash.com or open up the DealDash App on your favorite device to get in on the Cyber Monday Week excitement. The best time to do your holiday shopping is now, so what are you waiting for?

If you are new to DealDash or the bidding fee online auction model and want to give it a try, use the promo code “dealdash2021” upon registration to get an extra 100 free bids with your first Bid Pack purchase.

Black Friday on DealDash: A Whole Week of Epic Promotions!

Did you know that Black Friday dates back to the late 1800’s when large department stores like Macy’s and Sears would organize Thanksgiving Day parades? These stores wanted to gather large crowds of people together to promote their sales and get them shopping! 

While we don’t have any plans for a DealDash parade this year, we have done our best to provide you with the most epic auctions and promotions this Black Friday on DealDash! Here is a sneak peek at what we have in store!

Mega blasts are here!

We feel that our Black Friday Promotion should not center around one day, but rather there should be a lot happening throughout the week! As such we will kick off the week with a blast of 100 auctions on Monday morning at 8:00 AM Pacific Time! A blast means that there are a lot of auctions starting at the same time – in this case 100!

A pink cupcake sits with three candles that spell out, ''100'' - the number of auctions scheduled to start at the same time on DealDash on Cyber Monday!
100 auctions are all scheduled to start at the same time on November, 29th, at 8:00 AM Pacific Time!

If you happen to miss Monday Kickoff, don’t fret. There are also other blasts throughout the week! On Tuesday 40 auctions will start at the same time at 4:00 PM Pacific Time, and another 40 at 8:00 AM Pacific Time on Wednesday. On Black Friday itself, we are planning on having 5 big blasts! At 8:00 AM Pacific Time, 100 auctions will go live, as well as four separate 50 auction blasts in the evening starting every hour between 3:00 PM and 6:00 PM Pacific Time. Over the weekend, we will have auction blasts for specific categories of items at 8:00AM, 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM Pacific Time on both days!

Are there any discounts, other twists, or Flash Sales?

You bet there is! For all auctions starting between Monday and Wednesday you have to pay only 50% of the final auction price when you win an auction! On Thanksgiving and Black Friday, we’ll boost your Time As Highest Bidder (TAHB) by 5X on Thanksgiving and 4X on Black Friday! Besides the TAHB increases, both days contain 90%-off Flash Sales! Over the weekend, we let our customers enjoy runner-up auctions! In those auctions, the first runner-up will receive a personal 50% off Buy It Now offer when the auction ends. Also remember to check the daily challenges, there are some super rewards waiting for you if you complete those!

Surprise hours

The daily promotions are also spiced up with Surprise hours throughout the week with extra perks for active bidders! Be on the lookout for Surprise hours – you’ll find information on our daily newsletter or push notifications to your mobile device when the Surprise hour is about to start. If you do not receive our Daily Newsletter email, contact DealDash Support to get yourself added to the list! The surprise hours entail for example bid pack offers and TAHB multipliers! Oops, I might have let the cat out of the bag there! Maybe I shouldn’t have mentioned those quite yet…

Enough about all that, where are the video game consoles?!?

We got you covered here, too! Over the past few months our Procurement Team has worked like crazy to gather enough Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles to satisfy the demand we expect to see! This Black Friday you will see more than a dozen of these consoles go up for auction on DealDash. Even Jack Bauer might face a challenge to keep track of all of those!

But wait! There is still more!

One question we get all the time is, when is the next car auction coming up? Kaboom! The answer is next week of course! We will be auctioning the 2022 BMW X3 sDrive30i – Jet Black on 4:oo PM Pacific Time on Black Friday. As a heads up, we will also be auctioning SWFT MAXX e-Moped on Cyber Monday at 4:00PM Pacific Time. Besides the vehicles, we try to introduce one new special item each day – ranging from 4K QLED TVs to R2-D2!

Less bidders, less competition

Don’t feel like bidding against too many others? Good thing we have multiple No New Bidders flash sales planned as well!

  • Monday: No new bidders after $1 Flash Sale between 4:00 PM-6:00 PM
  • Tuesday: No new bidders after $2 Flash Sale between 4:00 PM-6:00 PM
  • Thursday: No new bidders after $1 Flash Sale between 8:00 AM-10:00 AM as well as 4:00 PM-6:00 PM
  • Saturday: Whole day has No new bidders after $3 twist in place, instead of the normal $5

The blasts are great opportunities to catch a deal – especially as some of those blast auctions are mystery auctions. The mystery auctions are marked with a question mark, and the item is revealed only 5 minutes before the auction starts! Best of all, no Bid Buddies can be booked before that meaning that there is likely to be less competition in these auctions!

What if I want to shop for my family, but I don’t win an auction?

No need to worry! You can always purchase the item at the Buy it Now price within 7 days of the auction ending. What about all of the bids you placed in the auction, you may ask? You get them all back! Every time you use the “Buy it Now” option, every bid you placed in that auction is returned to your bid balance, so you can try again in new auctions without buying more bids!

If you are new to DealDash or the bidding fee online auction model and want to give it a try, use the promo code “dealdash2021” upon registration to get an extra 100 free bids with your first Bid Pack purchase.

From the Bottom of Our Hearts….Thank You for Your Service.

The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 marked a monumental moment in history; the end of World War I. This was the hour when Armistice between the Allied Forces and Germany took effect which ended all major hostilities of World War I. November 11th was known as Armistice Day until 1954, when it was renamed Veterans Day. As we approach Veterans Day this year, we want to take a moment to appreciate the selfless sacrifice that the members of the United States Armed Forces make. Thank you for your service.

If you know anyone who has served, thank them for their service this Veterans Day.

This year, millions of folks will be celebrating Veterans Day. There are over 1.4 million members of the United States Armed Forces currently, and Veterans Day honors all members of the Armed Forces, past and present. This raises the total number of Veterans in the united states to almost 20 million, according to research conducted by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

A day full of tradition

Veterans Day pays respect to those who have served. On Veterans Day, you can choose how you wish to say thank you for your service. Some folks give flowers or baked goods to their neighbors or family members who have served. Other Americans choose to donate to charities that support Veterans, like the Fisher House Foundation – a group that builds comfort housing where Veterans can stay for free.

Parades are a popular way to celebrate Veterans Day.

No matter how you choose to say thank you for your service, some Veterans Day traditions cannot be skipped. For one, the American Flag should always be flown at half mast on Veterans Day. There is also a two minute period of silence that begins at 11 AM. Some schools choose to close on Veterans Day, while others remain open. And if you intend to go to the grocery store or use public transit, be sure to check the schedule first; many businesses and public services operate on holiday schedules and reduced hours on Veterans day.

DealDash’s Veterans Day promotion

You can find some exciting promotions on DealDash this Veterans Day. We are increasing the Time As Highest Bidder Meter multiplier to 4X! That means you earn free bids four times faster than normal! We also are scheduling twice the amount of auctions than we normally do. This means that you will have more selection than ever! And if there are any Veterans reading this that are already DealDash bidders, please feel free to contact our Customer Support Team on Veterans day. Let them know you served or are serving, and we will credit your account with 100 free bids. It is our small way to say Happy Veterans Day 2021, and thank you for your service.

If you are new to DealDash or the bidding fee online auction model and want to give it a try, use the promo code “dealdash2021” upon registration to get an extra 100 free bids with your first Bid Pack purchase.
