How Low Can You Go?    

How low can you go?  That is what we all want to know.

All customers want to know how we can win auctions at the lowest possible closing cost, while using the fewest number of bids.

If you look at the list of customers who already won the $500 Amazon gift card, you will see that one lucky customer won it for as little as 69 cents, while the same card closed for as much as $713.26. The highest closing cost of the $500 Amazon gift card was on a “free to the winner” special, so it does not mean the winner actually paid that much. It does mean, however, that there was a huge difference in the number of bids placed to win the same gift card.

Everything is fair in love and war, and everything is fair on, too. Regardless of the huge differences in the lowest and highest closing costs of auctions, the most important thing to remember is that we, the customers, are in charge of what happens. Nobody makes us bid or tells us how to bid or how much to bid. Nobody tells us when to start bidding or when to stop bidding. That is entirely up to us—the customers.

I know firsthand how easy it is to get caught up in the excitement of the bidding process because it happened to me when I first discovered the site. However, we customers are expected to be responsible bidders and we must each control our own bidding habits. One of the best ways to do that is by learning how the site works and by knowing how to play smart. As long as we do that, we can all enjoy a fun bidding experience.

DealDash is BBB Accredited

Stand Up for Trust – DealDash joins the Better Business Bureau as an accredited business which helps set standards for ethical business behavior and monitors compliance.

Earlier this month, on November 4, 2014, DealDash confirmed it’s business accreditation with the BBB of Minnesota and North Dakota in a unified effort to bring trust and compliance to the pay to play penny auction industry. Since DealDash launched back in 2009, the new and emerging Online Auction / Penny Auction industry has seen more than a thousand online auctions launch, but after more than five years, the market has started to mature and only the companies that are consistently providing a good experience remain.

DealDash BBB

Since DealDash’s inception it has grown into the most trusted and longest running online pay-to-play auction site in the United States and immediately differentiated itself from all other auction services with it’s tremendously popular Buy it Now option (BIN). BIN allows consumers to purchase the item at fair market retail price and get their bid credits back when they lost the auction.

The recreational shopping space is a multi billion dollar industry. With millions and millions of people continuing to try new online auction services, DealDash believes joining the BBB will help consumers find trustworthy companies and choose them over bad operators. DealDash believes it’s especially important in new emerging industries like this for a trusted authority like the BBB to assure consumers of companies that have a proven track record of delivering on their promises.

On average DealDash customers rate their service experience a 4.5 out of 5. DealDash believes much of this attributes to prompt response times consumers receive to their support inquiries (average 15 hrs to first reply) compared to the retail industry average of 26.6 hrs.

average time to first response is a first of its kind online pay to play auction that allows customers to shop thousands of unique items daily from the comfort of their home. DealDash is making shopping more fun by turning it into a game with a mission to be the most exciting way to get a deal on the planet!





As we begin our holiday preparations and think of ways we can celebrate the season, DealDash has offered us many ways to enjoy the bidding , winning and/or buying it now we are able to do.  So, I was thinking about what the DealDash penny auction site offers all of the customers who participate in the auctions every day.  How can we use the winnings on DealDash to help improve our thanks?  For starters, we can spell out Thanksgiving with items we can win on DeadDash.

T = Trampoline or Texaco Gift Card

H = HP laser jet printers

A = Aeropostale gift card for the younger generation

N = Nintendo DS, a great gift for kids of all ages

K = Kmart Gift Cards, sometimes with bids

S = Shell Gift Cards to get you to Grandma’s

G = Gift Cards Galore for all kinds of place

I =  iHop, love those pancakes

V = Vtech toys for your children or grandchildren

I = iTunes gift cards, my grandson loves them!

N = NBA2K15, game for PS4 or Xbox One


We celebrate the season with our families and friends and we are so fortunate to have an opportunity to share with others.  While we are bidding during the holidays we need to keep in mind there are less fortunate people in our communities.  Let’s share our good will with each other, bid fair, and enjoy the fact we have found the most fair bidding penny auction site there is.

Remember with free shipping, fast shipping, excellent customer service and the opportunity to win or buy it now when the auction does not go in your favor,  DealDash offers us all equal opportunities to get the items we want either by winning or buying.   Happy Thanksgiving fellow bidders!

Thankful for the Small Things

The leaves are changing colors and falling, the nights are getting chilly, and Thanksgiving is almost upon us. We all know that Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks for your family and friends, having a warm place to sleep and plenty to eat – but what else should we be thankful for?

In addition to all of the things mentioned above, I am also very thankful for DealDash. Not only does DealDash save me money, it also fills my days with the excitement and anticipation of WINning. Before I discovered DealDash I spent a lot of my time idly watching TV or movies to pass the time, but now I spend that same time studying DealDash, researching products and prices, and honing my strategies.

My biggest reason that I am thankful for DealDash is not for the excitement or even the savings, but thanks to DealDash I started a successful YouTube channel doing “Unboxings” of all of the products that I WIN or BIN from DealDash. If it wasn’t for DealDash I would have never even thought of the idea.

I would imagine that most people are thankful for the savings, though, and I can understand why, here is an absolute truth: You can never lose when you are bidding on something that you are planning on buying anyway for yourself or your family. The reason I say that you can never lose is because you can always use the BIN (But It Now) feature that DealDash offers and buy the product for a fair market price and also receive every single one of your bids back, instantaneously.

I know that DealDash is also thankful for us customers, too! Do you know how I know that? Well, if DealDash wasn’t thankful for all of us that play in their auctions they wouldn’t do so many nice promotions for us like .14 cent bids or auction blasts when they have 150 or even 200 auctions start at once. I think another nice thing that DealDash offers that shows that they are thankful for us is this blog right here! DealDash wants us to WIN, so therefore they set up this blog for us to trade tips and tricks.

There is still a little time before Thanksgiving to think: What are you Thankful for this year?
