DealDash Outperforms All Sites (Part 2)

DealDash for the WIN

                           PART 2

 

This is Part 2 of Monday’s DealDash Blog. Here’s why DealDash is better.

 On Monday we looked at some features that DealDash has and compared them to other bidding sites. Here are more comparisons to see once and for all if DealDash is the clear winner among all of the other sites, and why it’s worthy of your time and attention.

What Should You Compare in a Site?

 There are many things that you should compare when you are deciding where to spend your hard-earned dollars. We looked at a few things on Monday, there were many DealDash wins and a few ties. Here are more things that you should look at when choosing an entertainment shopping site:
  • Auto-bidder or no auto-bidder
  • How can you make your online payments?
  • Intuitiveness of website
  • Quality of items for bid
  • How many hours per day do the auctions run?
  • Shipping costs

The Answers

 

  • Auto-bidder or no auto-bidder – DealDash has the BidBuddy available on every auction, and is free for everyone to use. Some sites have auto-bidders, some don’t, and some sites only let you use the auto-bidder on certain auctions. Winner? DealDash.
  • How can you make your online payments? DealDash accepts online payments by credit card, debit card, and Paypal. I believe most sites use both credit and debit, and a few also accept Paypal. Winner? Tie.
  • Intuitiveness of website – DealDash is extremely user-friendly! You can join DealDash and start bidding in minutes because it’s so easy to use. If you happen to be a “not so computer literate” person, there are videos to watch on DealDash to learn how to use the site, as well as many videos on Youtube. Also, I meant what I said about customer service – if you ever have any problem using the site feel free to email them and they will help you. Other sites are similarly user-friendly, but some are a little confusing. Winner? DealDash/Tie.
  • Quality of items for bid – DealDash has extremely high-quality items available for auction from very respected brands. Every item that comes from DealDash is brand new and they all have warranties on them. If you ever happen to get a defective item it’s easy to exchange it. Other sites have generic merchandise, send out customer-returned items, and come with mangled shipping. Winner? DealDash.
  • How many hours per day do the auctions run? DealDash runs auctions 24/7. That’s right, no matter how early you get up, or how late you stay awake, there will always be a DealDash auction for you to participate in. Other sites only run for 12 hours per day. That’s fine for most people, but personally, as the mom of a baby, I am up at all hours! Winner? DealDash.
  • Shipping costs – DealDash ships every single item for FREE. I have gotten desks, exercise equipment, an armoire, and many other heavy items from DealDash, and shipping is always free. Other sites charge for shipping. Some charge ridiculous amounts for shipping, such as $2 for a gift card that they ship with 1 stamp on an envelope, or charge $5 processing fees on a $20 auction win. Winner? Definitely DealDash!
So you see from the questions and answers above, as well as the ones on Monday, DealDash is the clear winner when you are comparing the different bidding sites around the web. I hope that you found this 2 Part article helpful. Please check out our other blogs – DealDash Tips and DealDash Reviews. Until then, visit DealDash and see how much you can save. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

Always BIN to WIN on DealDash

Always BIN WIN DealDash

Winning an auction is great, but BINning a DealDash auction is nice as well.

If you’re a fan of DealDash I’m sure you’re familiar with the term BIN,  BIN of course means “Buy It Now.” BIN is the safety net that DealDash has very kindly installed for you. Today I would like to illustrate what a wonderful present that DealDash has given us by making the BIN option available for everyone.

How to Decipher the BIN Conundrum

Figuring out how much you will pay for the item if you end up BINning it is easy. Here’s a tip – the BIN price is always clearly labeled at the top of the auction description, on the left-hand side when you open up the auction’s page. After you have paid for your BIN auction you will receive all of your bids back that you have placed in the auction. If you are willing to BIN an auction you will never lose any money, because you will get all of your bids back!

Personal Example from Last Week

Did you participate in the “100 auctions start at one time” DealDash promotion last week? Well, I did, and I won a few small things – a phone case and a Wii U game. I had thrown in a few bids on quite a few smaller auctions hoping to win. However, the thing that I really wanted was the LitterMaid Self-Cleaning Cat Box. Oh, how I wanted it! I did a little DealDash math to figure out how many bids that I should put in to reach the BIN price – because I sure wasn’t going to stay up all night to watch the auction.

LitterMaid Self-Cleaning Cat Box – $111

$111 / .14 = 792 Bids

I only had 707 bids left after using a bunch on the smaller items, so I went ALL IN…And I lost. However, since DealDash offers the BIN protection, I very happily paid the $111 (free shipping on all DealDash WINs and BINs), got all of my bids back, will be receiving a LitterMaid Self-Cleaning Cat Box in the mail in a few days, and got to keep the “clock time” that I accumulated while bidding.

Since I was planning on buying a LitterMaid Self-Cleaning Cat Box from Petco in the next couple of months anyway, it made sense for me to bid it up to the BIN price. I knew that I was willing to pay the full retail price for the  LitterMaid Self-Cleaning Cat Box, and I had the possibility of winning it for an even better price. However, I didn’t win, and that’s okay! I didn’t lose any money, either.

In case you’re a newbie and haven’t made any BIN purchases, and don’t quite believe that DealDash will actually return your bids – it’s true! See my confirmation down below, showing the bids returned and free shipping.

DealDash BIN Confirmation

I hope that you have found this article helpful in learning some useful information about DealDash. Also, now that DealDash is requesting that the products you WIN/BIN are reviewed, I will even get 10 bids back when I review it! Now use your newly acquired information and go check out the auctions! See you on DealDash everyone! Good luck and happy bidding.

DealDash Outperforms All Sites (Part 1)

DealDash for the WIN

Do you use any other auction sites? Here’s why DealDash is better.

 There are many different auction and shopping sites out there on the World Wide Web, and DealDash is just one in a sea of many. However, DealDash has many excellent features and quirks that make it a very special site, and one that’s worthy of your time and attention.

What Should You Compare in a Site?

 There are many things that you should compare when you are deciding where to spend your hard-earned dollars, and the fact that you are doing research before you decide shows that you are a very savvy shopper. When choosing an entertainment shopping site, you should be looking at:
  •  Cost of individual bids
  • Number of bids in a bid package
  • Ease of winning auctions
  • Competition, i.e. Power Bidders
  • Response time from customer service
  • Solutions to problems from customer service

DealDash has Answers

Now that you know what you should be looking for in a shopping entertainment site, I am going to go through each and every item on that list and let you know how DealDash fares among other bidding sites.

  •  Cost of individual bids – DealDash bids fluctuate in price. The highest that I have ever seen bids sell for on DealDash is .60, and the lowest I have ever seen them go is .12. They are usually in the neighborhood of .14-.17. Other “pay to play” auction sites consistently charge .60-$1 per bid. Winner? DealDash.

 

  • Number of bids in a bid package – DealDash sells a variety of bid packs ranging from around 60 to 2400 bids. Other websites have similar amounts in their bid packages. Winner? Tie.

 

  • Ease of winning auctions – DealDash auctions are easy when you first start and get progressively harder as you bid on better and more expensive items. Other sites don’t have a “breaking in” period and throw the newbies straight in with the Power Bidders. Not fair. Winner? DealDash.

 

  • Competition, i.e. Power Bidders – All auction sites have Power Bidders. However, since DealDash has fairly strict winning limits the Power Bidders usually max out their limits fairly quickly and then have to sit out until their limits re-start themselves. Winner? Tie/DealDash.

 

  • Response time from customer service – DealDash has lightning fast customer service. I have had responses within minutes, and I’ve never waited more than 24 hours for a returned email. Other sites have emailed me back within a day, others have taken a few days, and some never emailed me back about my concerns. Winner? DealDash.

 

  • Solutions to problems from customer service – DealDash has the best and the nicest customer service reps around. I have spoken to quite a few of them on the phone and through email, and every single solitary one has been polite, knowledgeable, and friendly. Other sites, not so much. I actually had one customer service rep from a different site (No, I’m not going to name the site!) insult me when I said that I didn’t care to purchase $1,000 worth of bids that day. Winner? Clearly DealDash.

So you see from the questions and answers above, DealDash is the clear winner when you are comparing the different bidding sites around the web. Please stay tuned to the DealDash Blog, because Part 2 of “DealDash Outperforms All Sites” will be posted here on Saturday.
