Happy Memorial Day everyone! DealDash would like to take a moment to thank all of our service members, present and past, and wish everyone a wonderful day.
In case you weren’t aware, Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and the Coast Guard. Memorial Day is observed every year on the last Monday of May. Normally people think of Memorial Day as the kickoff to the summer season, though technically this year the first day of summer is June 20th.
Memorial Day is not the same as Veteran’s Day; Veteran’s Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, and Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving our country. Veteran’s Day is celebrated on November 11th. Both are very important patriotic holidays that can serve as great learning experiences for children and can encourage them into learning more about our nation’s history.
Memorial Day is celebrated in a variety of ways; typically there are parades, people visit the graves of family members or even strangers who served in the military, there are picnics, and of course everyone’s favorite – BBQs!
Grilling is of course where DealDash can come to the rescue! DealDash offers not only BBQ grills, but also grilling accessories such as this amazing Forged 25 Piece BBQ set in Case.

When you first join DealDash it might seem like the bidders are speaking a different language in their bios. Here are some tips to learn the “language of DealDash.”
Bids – While it may seem self-explanatory, bids are the currency of DealDash. Each bid that you spend raises the price of the auction by .01, and whoever is the last bidder gets to buy the auction at the final auction value. If you see someone talking about “saving your bids” or “conserving your bids”, they are just trying to save money.
Jumper – DealDash has a “No Jumper” policy, which means that no one new is allowed to join the auction after the final auction value has reached $5. So a “jumper” is someone who tries to join the auction late in order to save bids. There is sometimes an exception to the No Jumper policy, occasionally DealDash runs a special where there are no jumpers allowed after $3.
Stomper – A Stomper is someone who bids immediately after another person without waiting for the time clock to go down to 1, 2, or 3 seconds. The reason that bidders don’t like Stompers is because when you bid on DealDash you earn “clock time” for every second that you are the highest bidder, and eventually you can turn that clock time into free bids provided by DealDash.
DealDash App – App is short for “application”, and the DealDash App is available on both iTunes for Apple products and the Google Play store for Android devices. The DealDash app helps you monitor your auctions while you are on the go so you don’t have to worry about missing out on any of the action. You can also pay for your auctions on the DealDash App, buy more bids, favorite auctions to look at later, set alerts, and of course bid on items!
BidBuddy – Your best friend in the DealDash world. The BidBuddy is a free service that DealDash provides that will tirelessly bid on auctions for you with as many bids as you load him up with. The BidBuddy takes turns with other BidBuddies that people have set to bid, and bid with about 3 seconds left to go on the clock, so people don’t think that you are “stomping” their bids. You can set your BidBuddy in preparation for the auction to begin so you don’t even have to have your computer on when the auction starts. Of course, if you have the DealDash App you might want to manually wait for the auction to begin so you can scope out your competition before you set your BidBuddy.
So newbie DealDashers, those are just a few helpful hints for your first few times playing on DealDash. Remember to pay attention to the rules, check out the auctions and see what you would really like to bid on, and try some easier auctions to start! See you on DealDash everyone! Good luck and happy bidding.
DealDash’s Home, Garden, and Tools Section is very popular with bidders. Let’s explore what’s inside.
When you think of the Home, Garden, and Tools category what is the first thing that comes to mind? For me, the first thing that comes to mind is gardening, especially in the summer. DealDash has a lot of great gardening supplies such as raised garden beds, small gardening hand tools such as spades and larger gardening tools such as shovels and rakes. DealDash also has pop-up greenhouses, hoses, and so many other wonderful things that you can use to make your garden and yard beautiful.
The next part of the Home, Garden, and Tools category that we will explore is the tool section. DealDash has an excellent selection of tools, from the smallest humble flashlight all the way up to professional rolling tool storage carts. Of course, there are many more things that are somewhere in the middle, such as rechargeable drill sets, household tool sets with everything you need for small projects, and even some real tools that you can get your kids to show them how to use and respect tools. I have gotten a few tools from DealDash, and they have come in very useful around the house.
The last part of the Home, Garden, and Tools category is home. Home encompasses so many different products on DealDash it would be hard to list every one. I will try to provide a brief overview of what you can look forward to seeing regarding products for your home. To start off with, this year DealDash has partnered with some amazing and interesting new high-end companies, and there is a ton of new things to explore in the home section. There are works of art such as oil paintings, different sculptures, furniture that’s beautiful as well as useful, and other unique luxurious items. When we are exploring the home section we are not just talking about high-end decorative items, regular everyday household items such as vacuum cleaners, sheet sets, and candles are included as well.
The Home, Garden, and Tools category is an excellent section to look through when you are trying to think of a housewarming present, wedding present, or just something special to give a friend. I can guarantee you they won’t be able to find some of these items at their local stores!
I hope this article has you intrigued enough to go check out the Home, Garden, and Tools category on DealDash. You can check it out at this link right here. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!
