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.
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.
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.
Yet, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Even if school and sports are on hold, we can still celebrate Labor Day together as hard-working Americans. Around the country many will be enjoying an extra day off by barbecuing with friends.

We continue on the series of presenting our customers. Now it’s time to hear what Shirley says about bidding on her favorite online auction. Based on the chat we had with her, Shirley loves all the artsy auctions she’s won. She is reminded daily of her previous wins by the artwork, sculptures and clocks on her wall. The decorations are something she feels she wouldn’t have afforded in the retail market herself:
My best memory is an accumulation of all these wonderful things that I’ve been able to acquire. Items I would never be able to get in the retail market. The artwork in my home, the sculptures, the clocks – they’re all well made, they look gorgeous and it makes my home that much better.

Most people agree there are only three things in life we can be sure of–death, taxes, and change. Of course, we cannot do anything about death or taxes, but things changing could be either good or bad. We want to talk about change in this roadmap to 2020.
When it comes to shopping on DealDash.com, we try to listen to our customers and make the best possible changes based on that to cater to the needs of a variety of different style of bidders.
This blog post will first take a look at some of the changes that took place on DealDash in 2019 and then take a sneak peak of what is to be excepted for 2020 and the new decade!
