The Biggest Holiday Week of the Year

Today marks the start of a special week for Americans. It’s the week where you can watch giant floats of your favorite cartoon characters march through the streets of New York in the annual Macy’s Parade. It’s the week where an estimated 46 million turkeys are eaten across the USA. And last but not least, it’s the week where over 140 million Americans wake up early and go battle the crowds as most businesses hold their largest sales events of the year.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, it’s Thanksgiving and Black Friday Week!

From all your friends here at DealDash, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

You probably have a good idea about how to celebrate Thanksgiving; the main star of the day should be food. Turkey, mashed potatoes, carrot casarol , stuffing, bread rolls, and pumpkin pie…these are the familiar culinary staples that grace most American tables on Thanksgiving day. Apart from the food, there are other annual Thanksgiving traditions too. The Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys have been playing football games on Thanksgiving day since 1934! The link between Thanksgiving and Football is so deep, that once the New York Herald Newspaper called Thanksgiving the official holiday for watching football.

But what about Black Friday? How should you be celebrating the massive shopping day that takes place the Friday immediately after Thanksgiving? It’s obvious that you will be shopping, but where? What are the best Black Friday traditions? If you ask us, there is no need for you to wake up early, drive all around town and battle crowds this Black Friday. Instead, sleep in, have a leisurely breakfast, and go shopping from the comfort of your own home on DealDash!

This Year we have put together a Black Friday Sale that is the shopping event of the year! And best of all, unlike most stores that limit their Black Friday events to a single day, our Black Friday Sale is lasts all week!

Great gift ideas in liquidation auctions

DealDash has 3 dozen auctions on Monday for that. Need some new kitcheware? We have 40 auctions scheduled for a classy wooden serving platter that comes complete with two cups.

Don’t Miss DealDash’s Retro Revival Sale!

You’re probably familiar with the phrase, “Out with the old, and in with the new.” It’s a very popular mindset. Just pay attention to the commercials the next time you are watching TV. You’ll see ads for new types of cars, smart watches, and video games. You might even see a commercial advertising a new type of money! Most holiday sales will be featuring the newest and hottest items of the season, and we probably will too at some point this Autumn. But not this week. This week is all about the classics, the vintage, the retro. That’s right, it is DealDash’s Retro Revival Sale, and it is happening right now!

Check out auctions for new retro items!

This week on DealDash during the Retro Revival Sale there are special auctions for great retro products that have not been available in our auctions until now.

Let’s start with video games – one of the most popular gift categories year after year. In fact, Americans have been playing more video games than ever! It is estimated that in 2021 alone, Americans spent over 51 Billion dollars on video games! In DealDash’s Retro Revival Sale, you will see several different video game systems up for auction, including one of the most popular video gaming systems of all time, the original Playstation!

Video games are a very popular holiday gift for children of all ages!

Retro items have become a very popular option for home decoration. One neat trend are items that both look vintage but also serve a purpose. You can see a few of these items this week on DealDash.

How about a classic-looking mini fridge that looks like it is straight out of the 1950’s? This item can hold up to 10 cans of your favorite drink, and its bright red and while colors will make you think you are in a vintage American soda fountain.

What would you keep in a retro mini fridge?

One item you will see on DealDash this week is a camera that blends retro style with modern technology – the best of both worlds! This camera has a vintage look, and would make a great centerpiece on a coffee table or shelf when not in use. But when it is put to the test, it can take pictures and then instantly print them! However, it is not just a replica of old-school polaroid cameras that also printed photos instantly. This camera has a companion app you can use on your smartphone to preview your pictures before you print them. You can even crop your pictures or add a stylistic border! This camera would make a great gift for a lucky friend or family member, or perhaps it would make a great gift for you!

Photography is timeless – it is always in style.

Don’t miss out on special auctions this week

In addition to the auctoins for great retro items, there is even more excitement packed into DealDash’s Retro Revival Sale. Some of our favorite special auction types are back. This week you can participate in Leaderoard Auctions that award free bids to bidders, and you will also notice that the No Jumper Limit is varying; you will see it set to different levels in different auctions. And last but certainly not least, you will find bids on sale for as low as 12 cents per bid this week.

It’s Time To Get Ready For Halloween!

The leaves have turned from green to beautiful shades of red and gold, and in most places, temperatures are plummeting. What does this all mean? Fall is here, so it’s time to get prepared for Halloween and to check out Eerie Liquidation Week!

Halloween is one of the most-celebrated holidays, right behind Christmas, Thanksgiving, and the 4th of July. In fact, Halloween is so popular, that almost 150 million Americans celebrate the holiday by carving a pumpkin. People celebrate in other ways, too. Some of the most popular Halloween activities include visiting corn mazes, checking out a haunted house, watching a spooky movie, and of course, getting dressed up in a Halloween costume! This year, the most popular costume ideas are a mix of timeless ideas, like being a dinosaur or ghost, and new ideas inspired by contemporary movies and T.V. shows, like Top Gun: Maverick, and Paw Patrol.

DealDash also has a Halloween tradition for you; our Eerie Liquidation Week Promotion where we offer liquidation auctions and special promotions. Best of all? You don’t have to wait until the end of October – it starts today!

Your last opportunity at liquidation items before they are gone!

A major part of the Eerie Liquidation Week promotion are the low-inventory items that are up for auction. Throughout the week you will notice that some auctions are marked with a pumpkin icon and caution tape surrounding the photo of the item. This indicates that it it is an auction for a liquidation item. If the product has fewer than 15 units in stock, on the main auction page you will even see how many units of that specific item are left! It might be just a couple or it might be ten, but be aware: this might be your last opportunity to win an auction for this item before it is gone.

Now is the time to bid on DealDash liquidation auctions!

If you see that one of your favorite items is marked as a liquidation auction, no need to fret. We are not reducing our product selection or partnering with fewer brands. On the contrary, DealDash has liquidation auctions to clear space in our warehouses for a new wave of brands and items that will be up for auction soon.

Less competition and more rewards

Eerie Liquidation Week isn’t just about special auctions. We also will be running our most popular promotions throughout the week, too!

When you bid this week, one of the first things you will notice is a varying no new bidders limit. The no new bidders limit (also called No Jumper Limit) is the limit when it becomes closed to additional bidders joining. Generally speaking, no new bidders may enter the auctions to bid after the bids hit the $5 mark. This week, the limit will be lowered in select auctions. How low will it be? Well, that depends on the auction. It could be $3, or it might be even lower than that. You will have to check out the auctions to see for yourself! One thing is for certain; you will want to bid in these auctions because a lower no new bidders limit means that fewer people can join a specific auction which means less competition for you.

Another promotion you will see this week is the popular Runner-Up promotion. This promotion gives you a reason to celebrate finishing second in an auction! In Runner-Up auctions second-place finishers will receive a discounted Buy It Now offer for 50% the original price. 

A silver medal sits as a proud reward for second place.
Runner-up auctions offer a prize to second-place finishers.

That’s not all..

In addition to the Runner-Up Promotion, DealDash will also have increased Time-as-highest-bidder multipliers and auction winner discounts all throughout Eerie Liquidation Week. We hope to see you in the auctions and we wish you a Happy Halloween!

That’s a Bingo!

It’s Monday morning, and that means it is time for a new bingo square. On each square is an activity – or challenge – for you to complete in order to receive your 200 free bids and fill in that bingo square. You have one week to complete a challenge from when it is posted. If you miss a square, don’t fret! New challenges are posted every two weeks so a new opportunity for free bids is just around the corner.

Bookmark this blog post and subscribe to our email newsletter as we will be unveiling a new square on the bingo card below every other Monday. Here’s how it works!

  • To qualify you must have purchased a Bid Pack in the last 7 days
  • A new bingo square will be unveiled on this blog post; check back so you don’t miss out!
  • Send video proof of the completed bingo activity to [email protected]

Don’t worry about keeping track of which squares you fill in; we’ll handle that for you!

And last but not least, there will be a special prize for those dedicated few that manage to fill in every square on their bingo cards. What is this prize, you ask? We are keeping that a secret for now, but its something you will not want to miss!

This week’s challenge…

This week’s challenge is to win an auction on DealDash! You have one week to win an auction in order to receive credit for completing this week’s bingo square. The clock is already ticking, and this challenge is open through December 4th.

To fill this week’s square, all you need to do is win an auction and then let us know about it. The item can be big or small, and we will make sure that you have plenty of auctions to choose from (as always!). And if you decide to exchange your win back to bids, that is OK – you will still get credit for this week’s challenge. Just win an Auction before December 5th, and let our Team know about it, and you will be all set!

Once you notch a win this week, be sure to send us an email with a description of the win, or perhaps even a photo, to [email protected]. Maybe this week is the week when you win an item you’ve had your eyes on for a long time. Or, you might want to go after something that has just arrived on DealDash.

In any case, we hope that you manage to fill out another bingo square this week, and as always, happy bidding!

A Friend You Can Count On

You might think that bidding on DealDash is an individual activity, and you’d be mostly correct in thinking so. But did you know that there is a friend you can count on? A friend that helps you bid more effectively and even win auctions? Well, there is, and it’s called the BidBuddy!

If you’ve been around DealDash for more than a few auctions then you might already know about BidBuddy. It’s an automatic bidding tool that is available to DealDash bidders for each and every auction. And if you are the type of bidder who loves to multitask and participate in a few auctions at once, you have access to multiple bidbuddies; one for each auction that you are in.

Type in the number of bids you want to use, then click “Book a BidBuddy”

Trying new things can be hard, and if you haven’t used BidBuddy before, perhaps you are wondering if it is difficult or if it requires a lot of brain power. Worry not; it’s very simple to use. Once you have chosen an auction you want to bid in, simply enter the number of bids you would like to add to the auction in the box that says “Number of Bids” and click the “Place Bids” button. It’s that easy!

Once the auction starts, the Bid Buddy will place your bids one at a time until you win or until all your bids allocated to it have been used. If you decide that this particular auction isn’t for you, or if the auction price is going too high, don’t worry,  you can cancel your BidBuddy any time you like.

One great feature of the Bid Buddy is that it not only bids for you automatically, but it bids intelligently! It is designed to only bid when the auction clock is about to run out. This way, no bids are wasted. Many successful bidders rely on BidBuddy to help them win auctions and save time and money

A sign alerts readers to keep calm and use the DealDash BidBuddy.
Do yourself a favor and rely on the Bid Buddy for some help.

BidBuddy guarantees your place

One perk that comes with using BidBuddy is our BidBuddy Guarantee rule.

The BidBuddy Guarantee is a feature that ensures all BidBuddies booked before the auction starts will be allowed to bid. This feature was introduced to make sure that everyone bidding before the No Jumper Limit could participate in the auction. Now, manual bidding before the No Jumper Limit will not exclude any BidBuddies from participating as long as they have been booked before the auction starts and have not been cancelled.

I hope this information inspires you in the auctions to try something new. Maybe you will even stop manually bidding for a bit to give BidBuddy a try. If you’re interested in reading even more tips and tricks check out the “Tactics & Tips” section on DealDash.
