What In The World Is DealDash?

What things come to mind when you think about the United States of America? Surely you have heard the phrase, ‘American as apple pie’. Does anything else come to mind? If you are a sports fan, perhaps you are thinking of baseball or football. If you love music, then Bruce Springsteen or Elvis might be what you’re visualizing. How about auctions? Bidding? DealDash? Since 2009 DealDash has offered the premier auction experience to Americans from coast to coast. If you haven’t yet started bidding in our fast-paced auctions, you might be wondering what all the fuss is about.

A new way to shop

Our story began in 2009. We launched DealDash to create a new type of bidding site where bidders who don’t win an auction don’t have to lose their money. Over the past 12 years we have followed our motto of “Fair and Honest” to grow into the premier pay-to-participate shopping experience. Want to see for yourself? You begin by creating an account for free. The first stop for new bidders is the How It Works section. There you will learn how to bid and how to set up your profile. You can even participate in a practice tutorial auction.

The bidding process is a simple one. Each bid you place uses up one of the bids from your balance, and increases the price of the auction by 1¢, while setting the auction timer then back to a full ten seconds. It’s in this small window that someone else must decide if they will place a bid to outbid you. Auctions go on as long as the bidding continues, but if no new bids are placed and you are the final bidder in the auction, you win the auction at the final sale price!

An exciting world of auctions is waiting for you on DealDash! You might even score a new set of wheels!

If you don’t win the auction, you can still use the Buy It Now offer to purchase the item for its retail price, and even get back all the bids you used in that auction! Users who take advantage of this option usually have a better experience, since they get the item they initially wanted, as well as to keep all their bids.

Award winning service…for you…y tú!

A New Face For The New Year

On DealDash, bidders love to show a bit of their personality in the auctions by choosing a funny or witty username, and of course selecting an avatar of their choice. The avatar is the photo that displays next to your username while you bid. DealDashers either select from a premade group of cartoon avatars, or they upload a photo of their own to use on the mobile apps.

Over the years, we have introduced exciting new items, promotions, and gameplay features to DealDash, but the avatars have stayed the same. We might have been overlooking them to work on other matters, but today we are proud to announce that we are not neglecting avatars anymore! In fact, we have 42 new avatars that are ready for you to begin using immediately!

A friendly face for any occasion

Putting your best face forward on DealDash is easy across all devices! On desktop, you can change your profile avatar from your Dashboard section. On Android, open the main app menu (three lines at the top left of the main screen), then tap your picture in the top left. On iOS, tap Dashboard → Settings, then your picture in the top left. Then all that’s left is deciding which new avatar is best for you!

Check Out What The New DealDash TV Ad Reveals!

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!

Stuck At Home? Turn To Alternative Online Bidding Sites!

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?

Alternative online bidding sites like DealDash are open 24/7.
This sign is becoming an all-too-familiar sight for many shoppers.

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.

Online shopping is on the rise and offers an experience that traditional stores can’t.

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.

An Important Part Of DealDash: Buy It Now (BIN) option

The year is 2009, and a young man just lost an auction. He spent $50 trying to win an iPad, but someone else outbid him and he was left empty-handed. Did he cry about it? Perhaps he even yelled out a few choice words? Maybe. But he also promised that he would never let this happen again—to him or anyone else. He ended up creating DealDash which is now the largest pay-to-participate auction site in the US. DealDash was founded to provide an auction experience where people don’t have to lose the money they spent bidding. This is still our mission today.

It is easy to lose money if you are not careful online!
Be sure to keep an eye on where your money goes…

DealDash offers two key things to make sure that no one leaves an auction empty-handed. For starters, we offer a 90-day 100% money-back guarantee on a customer’s first bid pack purchase. This means that if you buy bids and decide that DealDash is not for you, we will refund your first bid pack purchase back to you in full! The second feature is called Buy It Now (BIN), and it is an important part of what makes DealDash the best auction site around.

What Does Buy It Now (BIN) Mean in Bidding?

The Buy It Now option (BIN for short) is for people who do not win an auction. It lets you pay the listed price for an item to get it sent to you. The bids you used in the auction trying to win the item are returned to your account instantly when you BIN. This way, you can try again to win a different auction without losing your bids. Auction sites that came before DealDash didn’t have this option which caused frustrating situations. You could spent a lot of money trying to win an item, but without any guarantees.
