Happy Marathon Monday from DealDash! Today is Marathon Monday, so to celebrate, let’s talk about marathons and running.
In case you didn’t know, the Boston Marathon is always held on Patriots’ Day, which is a holiday that is only celebrated in Massachusetts and Maine, and it’s always on the third Monday of April. The first Boston Marathon was in 1897, and it was inspired by the success of the first modern-day marathon competition in the 1896 Summer Olympics. The Boston Marathon is the world’s oldest annual marathon and ranks as one of the world’s best-known road racing events. THe Boston Marathon started with 18 participants in 1897, and now the marathon attracts an average of about 30,000 registered participants each year, with 30,251 people entering last year in 2015.
You don’t need to be a marathoner to be a great runner, though. You just need drive, determination, stamina, some free time, and some suitable running gear. DealDash can help you cultivate drive, determination, and stamina by participating in auctions, and DealDash can also help you out with some great running gear. DealDash has recently added some awesome new athletic clothing to their lineup of auctions, if you check out this link here it will take you right to them so you can browse around and see if there are any auctions that you would like to bookmark.
The most important article of clothing when you are running, however, is your shoes, of course. There are so many brands and styles of running shoes out there to choose from, here are some quick tips on getting a great pair of running shoes.
- Fit – You need to be professionally fitted for your running shoes, and even after being fitted at the shoe store it’s advisable to try on many many pairs of shoes to make sure that they are a perfect fit.
- Terrain – Are you planning on running on the road or a similar flat surface like a track? Or are you planning on running on sand, dirt, or a soft surface? You should decide this before you go shopping, because while you technically CAN throw on any pair of shoes to run on any surface, it’s a much better plan to decide what surface you are planning on running before you purchase your running shoes.
- Frugality – You should get the best pair of running shoes that’s feasible for you and your current situation. The best way to save money on buying your running shoes is to win gift cards for Foot Locker on DealDash. If you would like to check out the Foot Locker gift card auctions on DealDash just click this link here and it will take you to DealDash so you can check them out.
I hope that this article gave you a little inspiration and motivation to start a running program for health and fitness. DealDash would love to hear any success stories that the blog readers have had. Feel free to post a comment and tell us about your fitness journey. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!
Most of us have a special lady in our life that we would like to celebrate on Mother’s Day, be it your own Mother, Grandmother, Aunt, Mother of your children, or even just a good friend. Let DealDash help you plan an amazing day for that amazing Mommy that you know.
Now is the time to start thinking about that special lady that you would like to honor on Mother’s Day this year. Mother’s Day is just around the corner, on Sunday May 8th, so if you’d like to plan out a day or get her a gift now is a great time.
DealDash has so many different and wonderful things available to assist you with either a gift or planning out a whole day — Here’s an example of what you could do for that amazing woman in your life:
The first thing that you should do is go to the Shell station and get gas with your Shell gift card that you got on DealDash. You’re taking Mom a lot of places today, so you’d better fill up. Here’s a link to Shell gas cards.
If you really want to get on Mom’s good side how about bringing her some beautiful jewelry? DealDash has earrings, necklaces, watches, and more all waiting for you to win. Here is a link to the jewelry.
Next it’s time to take Mommy out to dinner. How about her favorite restaurant, Texas Roadhouse? DealDash has the gift cards that you need at this link right here. Mom loves the cinnamon buttered bread there!
After dinner it’s time to see a movie with Mom. There’s a new romantic comedy out that she can’t wait to see. Go to this link to get an AMC Theaters gift card from DealDash. Don’t forget to buy Mom some popcorn!
Lastly, Mom is getting tired and wants to stop for some coffee on the way home. Dunkin’ Donuts is her favorite, luckily DealDash has Dunkin’ gift cards at this link here.
Whew! That was quite a special day with Mama! And it would have been so expensive if you didn’t have DealDash auctions to bid on and help you save a little money. I hope that this article gave you a few ideas on how to treat Mom on her special day. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!
Today we will continue talking about some common mistakes that bidders make, and how to avoid making them.
On Monday we talked about how bidders make mistakes by not buying bigger bid packs when they are on sale, and also by not setting reasonable and achievable goals for themselves. Today we will continue to examine how we are bidding and how we can improve bidding with the end result being that next big win at DealDash.
Not thinking ahead – Is a common mistake in DealDash bidding as well as in other aspects of life. Thinking ahead goes hand-in-hand with buying bigger bid packs when they are on sale, but thinking ahead is much more than just that. Thinking ahead means planning and making strategic decisions about when to spend your bids and what to spend them on.
Thinking ahead in DealDash terms means that you carefully decide what auction that you will be bidding on, and then do the math to figure out exactly how many bids that you can spend on that auction to get up to the BIN (Buy It Now) price without going over, and then inputting that amount of bids into your BidBuddy.
The BidBuddy is the best tool to use when you are trying to think ahead – the BidBuddy will effortlessly and tirelessly bid for you, up to the amount of bids that you inputted, and you don’t even have to be at your computer.
Spreading your bids too thin – Another mistake that is frequently seen at DealDash is spreading your bids too thin. Instead of picking one or two auctions and showing them the attention and focus that they deserve a common mistake at DealDash is placing a bid here, there, and everywhere on lots of different auctions and then being disappointed when there is nothing to show for it at the end.
The easiest way to fix this mistake is of course by taking more care and spending more time doing a little research to decide what you truly want to bid on. If you are only halfway interested in a certain auction, why bother throwing a few bids on it? Use those bids on an auction that you are truly interested enough to “go all the way” and Buy It Now (BIN) if you don’t happen to win.
Don’t despair if yourself doing all of the bidding mistakes that I have mentioned in the blogs this week – it takes time and experience to develop bidding skills and strategies. If you take my advice to heart, chances are good that soon you’ll be winning the big prizes and wonder why you were ever having trouble with bidding mistakes at all. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!
