Four Things to Remember and One Thing Never to Forget

While Shopping for Holiday Gifts on DealDash

I will admit that I have been winning a few items a month to stash away for Christmas gifts for the past few months. Even though I pretty much have what I need for gift-giving, it’s almost impossible not to see something new on DealDash that catches my eye that I’d love to give as a gift. Below is my list of things to remember while shopping for holiday gifts on DealDash:

Read Item Descriptions – Here you can find out size dimensions and materials and other helpful information on the items you’re bidding on. Click on additional photos to see greater detail of each item and to determine if they are packaged in a box that would be great for gift presentation.

Up Your Strategy When Bidding – Holiday season is the busiest shopping time of the year, whether you’re shopping in the stores, buying online or bidding on DealDash. Know that there are other like-minded folks like you who are also trying to snag a great deal. Plan accordingly through increased number of bids, different days and times when  you bid or other strategy.

Utilize BidBuddy – It never fails that whenever I’m trying to keep an eye on my bids and really watch the progress and action of an auction, I get called away or distracted. There have been several times when stepping away for a few moments  cost me a win. Now I always use BidBuddy and top off if I know I have to step away.

Utilize the Buy It Now Option – It’s sometimes hard to stick to the No. 1 rule on DealDash and that is to only bid on items you truly want to win. One of the reasons behind this rule is that if it’s an item you truly want and you happen to lose the auction, you can always use the Buy It Now option, pay retail price for the item and get all the bids you placed into the auction back into your bid bank. It’s a complete win-win for bidders.

…And Never Forget – DealDash has amazing items and opportunities to win those items every single day of the year, 24 hours a day! If you don’t win the items you want in time for Christmas this year, just put them on your list and start winning a couple of items a month and to put away for next year’s holiday season.

Happiest of holidays to all and happy bidding on DealDash!

Thinking About DealDash Holiday Donations


The holiday season is upon us. It’s time to start thinking about what you can win on DealDash to donate.

DealDash is the perfect place to win some things to donate to the less fortunate this holiday season. There are lots of things that would be just right thing that people could love and get lots of use out of. Read on for more information from DealDash.

Winning Toys to Donate

Since Christmas is most children’s favorite holiday, it only makes sense to make special plans to get toys to donate. Children of all ages, birth on up love to unwrap toys and gifts, so why not make some less fortunate kids happy this holiday season.

There are many different choices of toys on DealDash. There are things like night lights and stuffed animals for younger kids, Lego sets for bigger kids, and video games and electronics for teens. Remember, just because these teens aren’t adorable little kids anymore doesn’t mean that they wouldn’t love to open up a present on Christmas morning.

Where Can I Donate?

If you’re looking for a place to donate your DealDash wins, that’s easy. Toys For Tots is a wonderful and worthy cause that will be happy to take your new and unwrapped toys. There are many Toys For Tots donation drop-offs. You can find a Toys For Tots drop-off location at

Donating items to a family instead of just one child can be a nice thing to do as well. You can pick a family from the “Angel Tree” at your local mall or church. The Angel Tree donations are run by the Salvation Army. So if you’d like to donate to the Angel Tree program but can’t find a tree to pick from, then just look up your local Salvation Army’s website.

My personal favorite place to donate to during the holiday season is social services, the agency that takes care of foster children. On any given day, there are over 400,000 children in foster care in the United States. DealDash has not only toys, but also clothing, shoes, and grooming items, all of which could be very useful for a child or teen in foster care.

BidBuddy Helps You Donate

If you’re wondering how to win these items for less fortunate children, the answer is clear – use the BidBuddy! The BidBuddy is available to every bidder, free of charge. You can use him to help in any auction, even auctions that are happening at the same time.

The BidBuddy is easy to use as well. Simply open up any DealDash auction that you’re interested in bidding on, and in the middle of the screen, you will see a space and a button that says “Book a Bid Buddy”. Click on the space that says “add bids here” and put in the number of bids that you are willing to spend on this particular DealDash auction. Then hit enter. The BidBuddy is the best way to win auctions to donate to the less fortunate on DealDash.

Want Bids Back? BIN and Receive Your Bids

Finding what you want on DealDash is fun, but we can’t win all the time. However, you can always BIN (Buy It Now) and get your bids back from the auction. To BIN an auction means that you pay retail price for the thing that you didn’t win, and you receive back all of the bids that you placed to use again, as well as free shipping on the product. It doesn’t matter what the price of the auction is, or how many bids that you spent, you can do a BIN on any DealDash item as long as you have placed at least one bid. When you don’t win an auction, BINning is the next best option.
