The calendars are approaching the end of November which means that Thanksgiving is almost here! This important holiday was first celebrated by pilgrims in 1621 as a harvest festival. Nowadays, most families across America have their own Thanksgiving traditions which probably involve a large family gathering and heaping plates of food. Yes, it is no secret that Thanksgiving has been an important part of American history for centuries. Perhaps you didn’t know that the day after thanksgiving—Black Friday—has a long and important tradition, too!
That’s right, Black Friday dates back to the late 1800’s when large department stores like Macey’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 put together a sales which includes 90% off Black Friday auction wins!
Our First Ever 90% Off Black Friday Sale
On Friday, November 27th, we will be launching our 90% OFF Black Friday promotion. The final sales price for auctions beginning on Black Friday is slashed by 90%! This is something we’ve never done before and it’s quite the discount – plus available for one day only.
Have you bought a turkey yet and figured out the side dishes you are going to serve this Thanksgiving? You still have time to plan, but not much—November 26th will be here before you know it. And not to put too much pressure on you, but it’s almost time to put up your Christmas lights and pick out a tree!
For a lot of folks, the holidays are the best time of year, but lots of planning and preparation is needed to create a magical experience for you and your family. Maybe you’re planning a trip, or deciding which side off the family you will be celebrating with. One thing that is essential is to not forget the gifts! Are you going to get your Christmas shopping done early this ear and avoid a last minute dash to the mall? Make things easy on yourself and try to do your Christmas shopping online for a change!
1. Online Shopping Is Easier Than Ever
DealDash makes it easier than ever to sort out everyone on your Christmas list. One reason why a lot of folks are hesitant to do their Christmas shopping online is because they are worried about expensive shipping costs that are tacked on to the sales price. These hidden shipping fees have caused many to turn away from online shopping. DealDash has you covered by paying all shipping costs. This means that shipping is free, now and forever.
By getting your Christmas shopping done online, you have complete control. The internet is always open and you don’t need to worry about fixing your hair, or even changing out of your pajamas!
2. Save More By Christmas Shopping Online
The mall is a great place to shop. After all, there is a reason why it is a favorite place for teenagers to gather with friends, and for seniors to walk a few laps and get some exercise. For many, the mall is an important part of suburban America that cannot be matched. But when it comes to savings and the potential amount of money you can save, online shopping has the mall and other traditional stores beat.
On DealDash, you can win a new car for well under $1,000 or a new bike for $11 as seen on TV! Try Christmas shopping online this year so you can see firsthand the promotions and sales that are impossible to find at the mall.
3. Find Everything You Need Without Leaving Your Couch
Take a look at this year’s Christmas list. Is it long? Are there any hard-to-find requests? Odds are, you will end up driving to a few different stores to get everything done. Even America’s largest mall, the Mall of America, has limits as to what their 500 stores carry. As DealDash is centralized, we make our own choice on what inventory we sell and it’s all available. You can browse our upcoming auctions and bid on anything from a new pair of shoes to Christmas trees and other presents. Feel what true one-stop-shopping feels like and do your Christmas shopping online this year!

One way to start a debate, or perhaps even an argument, is to ask someone what their favorite TV show is. Many 90’s kids like myself will say that The Simpsons is the best show. Folks who like a bit of drama might reply with General Hospital, which ran for 58 seasons and has over 14,000 episodes! And those all over the country have their favorite news channels; be it a nationwide or a local channel – it has become an important part of their routine. One thing that people can agree on is this; TV commercials are the worst! They always seem to interrupt our favorite shows during the most important moments, and sometimes they seem to go on forever. And worst of all, there are teams of experts and psychologists designing commercials to make them intentionally annoying or memorable!
Is this really that hard to believe considering that most of us can recite parts of advertisements that we saw decades ago? (I’m lovin’ it!) Don’t get discouraged and turn off your TV just yet. There are some TV ads that are actually viewable. A lot of folks tune into the Super Bowl just for the iconic TV commercials, which cost millions of dollars to make, and even more money to air. The new DealDash TV commercial, airing just in time for Black Friday 2020, is also something that should not be missed. So if you are lucky enough to catch it while watching your favorite show, make sure to pay attention!
New cases of COVID-19 are on the rise across the United States which means that Americans will be forced to change their habits for the time being. Instead of grabbing a drink at your favorite restaurant, you will be grabbing dinner via curbside pick-up. Perhaps your favorite college football team does not have any games scheduled and you have to watch TV instead. And if you want to do some window shopping at the mall, you will probably find a lot of your favorite stores are closed. Maybe it’s time to pick up on some alternative online bidding sites?
Even if people are forced to stay at home and businesses are ordered to shut their doors, life goes on, right? Kids will still expect some Christmas magic and maybe a pile of presents. Many adults will expect some Thanksgiving magic and dream of turkey with all the trimming – pandemic or not.
Yes, there are still plenty of things that need to be done, and with normal life disrupted, many folks are trying new things, like online bidding site alternatives, to eliminate boredom and prepare for the holidays. DealDash is a great place to start your journey into the world of online auctions, and DealDash prides itself on being the longest running and loved pay-to-participate bidding site in the US!
Only the Best Parts of Shopping
Online bidding sites are nothing new. DealDash has been around since 2009 and folks have a lot of nice things to say about DealDash! DealDash and other online shopping destinations are busier than ever because of the lockdowns and restrictions caused by COVID-19. 2020 might have changed how Americans shop forever! Even though its annoying to find the mall closed when you really need to buy something, many people are happy that they shifted to online bidding site alternatives. DealDash offers promotions and savings that traditional stores can’t match.
DealDash’s unique pay-to-patriciate format makes this possible. To bid in a DealDash auction, you first need to buy bids. If you use your bids in an auction and don’t win, you have the option to purchase the item for the Buy It Now price to get both the item you were bidding on and the bids you used returned to you. This is called the Buy It Now feature. It is one of many things that make DealDash a popular alternative online bidding and shopping place.
Are you happy coming in second and being the auction runner-up? Second place is pretty good, right? Second place in the Olympics gets you a silver medal and most likely a parade when you return home. In major sporting tournaments like the U.S. Open Golf Championship, second place is worth over one million dollars!
And don’t tell Fabiano Caruana – the second-best chess player in the world- that he underachieving. He is a genius, even if he is not #1. But while second place is usually a great achievement, there are times when coming in second is pretty lousy. As race car driver Dale Earnhardt, Sr. famously said in an angry outburst, “Second place is the first loser.” Maybe Dale is right. After all, who remembers Walter Mondale (second in the 1984 US presidential election)? On DealDash, do you treasure your wins? Or do you happily remember the times when you were the auction runner-up in DealDash auctions? While it’s true that there can be only one highest bidder in an auction, we now have a new promotion that makes the first runner-up a winner, too!
