During the last couple of weeks we´ve been getting hundreds of emails from people telling us to do
something about the same people winning the same product time after time (who needs 8 Kitchen Aid mixers anyway!?!)

We took the advice given to us and we put our developers to work on a new feature. And its out TODAY!
We call it “One-per-user”, it really means that if you have won that product before, you can´t bid on it again.
These deals are specially marked and by going to the DealBattle page (the page with the bidding history, etc.)
you can see a list of users who are blocked from bidding on that deal due to having already won a deal for that item.

Normal deals will continue as usual. You can check who´s blocked before bidding to get a good feel for the competition!
As always, keep telling us what we´re doing great but more importantly tell us when we´re screwing up!

Best wishes from the DealDash team

Credit Pack Mania!

Have you noticed what´s going on? 5 credit packs with thousands of bids each going on for days!?
Some of the biggest power-bidders in the industry have come to DealDash to battle it out.
Which power bidder will emerge as the ultimate bidder? Nobody knows quite yet.

We´ve received a lot of emails about this and a lot of people are watching the deals with excitement, as are we!
Here are some of the questions posted:
How come these bidders are taking up each other spending thousands of bids in attempt to win?
Well, it´s all part of their strategy. It´s a battle for domination and they want the community to know that they don´t quit.

Why credit packs?
As you know, winning limits do not apply to credit packs. We allow 10 wins / week, for power-bidders that´s not enough
and being able to bid and win without filling up your limits is something of great value!

Who´s going to win?
There are bets flying around on forums, blogs and the DealDash office! We are no smarter than you, only
time will tell!

Have a good one!
Dave & the team

Improvements Galore!

I´m really happy with all the new improvements that have been introduced in the last couple of weeks. From the new Buy it Now to the stricter winning limits, it´s been great to see all the positive feedback. Now with you in mind we have introduced a couple more great things which I think you´ll really love!

The idea of having to pay something in order for you to keep playing just didn’t seem right to us. With that in mind welcome to FREE Item Exchange. That´s right. You no longer need to pay a dime to exchange a product you win into more Credits! Just exchange it, hassle free!

The Dashboard has an updated look now as well. We hope to have answered your call with making the Dashboard easier to use. Remember to keep the suggestions coming, if you would like to see new improvements, please LET US KNOW! 🙂

Well that’s about it, we´ve been powering out the improvements during these past couple of weeks which I hope you have enjoyed! We have more planned so keep an eye out for ’em.

Have a great day!

Improved Buy it Now!

[vimeo 14028539 w=542]

As the DealDash community grows, new developments and features naturally spring to life. We are very excited to announce an improved Buy it Now. Starting from today whenever you use the Buy it Now, not only will you get your product, we´ll also give you the amount of credits you used, for free! Simply, all Credits used in a DealBattle are now returned upon completing a buy it now purchase.

For example:
If you lose a DealBattle for an iPod Touch 8GB (retails for $199.99) and you spent 50 Credits bidding for it, you may choose to purchase the same iPod model for the same price ($199.99) and we´ll not only ship you the item but immediately add 50 Credits to your account, for free! There are no limits to the amount of Credits that can be added, e.g. Bid a million times, get a million Credits back when you use Buy it Now. There’s no cap – guaranteed!

Here’s what’s been improved and what it means for you.

  • All Credits are equal, BonusCredits are now as valuable as Credits!
  • Instead of always purchasing credit packs to play, just purchase a product after bidding on it and we’ll give you back the credits so you can continue to battle until you win that amazing deal at 96% off! Remember, 77% of deals get sold before they hit $1.00!
  • Now you don’t have to worry about how many credits you place to win an item, just go for it! If you win, great! If you lose, just purchase the product and you’ll have all your credits to score a different deal!
  • You may now take advantage of the Buy it Now offer for a full 7 days after the DealBattle has ended (rather than the previous 24hrs).

We really like this a lot and believe it adds more strategy to the game providing you with a more exhilarating competitive shopping environment! If you have any questions, please feel welcome to send me a message.

Special Promotion – First 50 Buy it Now orders will get Double the amount of Credits back!

*Up to a maximum of 1000 extra Credits per Buy it Now purchase

Many thanks!
