Did you know that Black Friday dates back to the late 1800’s when large department stores like Macy’s and Sears would organize Thanksgiving Day parades? These stores wanted to gather large crowds of people together to promote their sales and get them shopping!
While we don’t have any plans for a DealDash parade this year, we have done our best to provide you with the most epic auctions and promotions this Black Friday on DealDash! Here is a sneak peek at what we have in store!
Mega blasts are here!
We feel that our Black Friday Promotion should not center around one day, but rather there should be a lot happening throughout the week! As such we will kick off the week with a blast of 100 auctions on Monday morning at 8:00 AM Pacific Time! A blast means that there are a lot of auctions starting at the same time – in this case 100!
If you happen to miss Monday Kickoff, don’t fret. There are also other blasts throughout the week! On Tuesday 40 auctions will start at the same time at 4:00 PM Pacific Time, and another 40 at 8:00 AM Pacific Time on Wednesday. On Black Friday itself, we are planning on having 5 big blasts! At 8:00 AM Pacific Time, 100 auctions will go live, as well as four separate 50 auction blasts in the evening starting every hour between 3:00 PM and 6:00 PM Pacific Time. Over the weekend, we will have auction blasts for specific categories of items at 8:00AM, 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM Pacific Time on both days!
Are there any discounts, other twists, or Flash Sales?
You bet there is! For all auctions starting between Monday and Wednesday you have to pay only 50% of the final auction price when you win an auction! On Thanksgiving and Black Friday, we’ll boost your Time As Highest Bidder (TAHB) by 5X on Thanksgiving and 4X on Black Friday! Besides the TAHB increases, both days contain 90%-off Flash Sales! Over the weekend, we let our customers enjoy runner-up auctions! In those auctions, the first runner-up will receive a personal 50% off Buy It Now offer when the auction ends. Also remember to check the daily challenges, there are some super rewards waiting for you if you complete those!
The daily promotions are also spiced up with Surprise hours throughout the week with extra perks for active bidders! Be on the lookout for Surprise hours – you’ll find information on our daily newsletter or push notifications to your mobile device when the Surprise hour is about to start. If you do not receive our Daily Newsletter email, contact DealDash Support to get yourself added to the list! The surprise hours entail for example bid pack offers and TAHB multipliers! Oops, I might have let the cat out of the bag there! Maybe I shouldn’t have mentioned those quite yet…
Enough about all that, where are the video game consoles?!?
We got you covered here, too! Over the past few months our Procurement Team has worked like crazy to gather enough Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles to satisfy the demand we expect to see! This Black Friday you will see more than a dozen of these consoles go up for auction on DealDash. Even Jack Bauer might face a challenge to keep track of all of those!
But wait! There is still more!
One question we get all the time is, when is the next car auction coming up? Kaboom! The answer is next week of course! We will be auctioning the 2022 BMW X3 sDrive30i – Jet Black on 4:oo PM Pacific Time on Black Friday. As a heads up, we will also be auctioning SWFT MAXX e-Moped on Cyber Monday at 4:00PM Pacific Time. Besides the vehicles, we try to introduce one new special item each day – ranging from 4K QLED TVs to R2-D2!
Less bidders, less competition
Don’t feel like bidding against too many others? Good thing we have multiple No New Bidders flash sales planned as well!
- Monday: No new bidders after $1 Flash Sale between 4:00 PM-6:00 PM
- Tuesday: No new bidders after $2 Flash Sale between 4:00 PM-6:00 PM
- Thursday: No new bidders after $1 Flash Sale between 8:00 AM-10:00 AM as well as 4:00 PM-6:00 PM
- Saturday: Whole day has No new bidders after $3 twist in place, instead of the normal $5
The blasts are great opportunities to catch a deal – especially as some of those blast auctions are mystery auctions. The mystery auctions are marked with a question mark, and the item is revealed only 5 minutes before the auction starts! Best of all, no Bid Buddies can be booked before that meaning that there is likely to be less competition in these auctions!
What if I want to shop for my family, but I don’t win an auction?
No need to worry! You can always purchase the item at the Buy it Now price within 7 days of the auction ending. What about all of the bids you placed in the auction, you may ask? You get them all back! Every time you use the “Buy it Now” option, every bid you placed in that auction is returned to your bid balance, so you can try again in new auctions without buying more bids!
