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!
Get prepared for the holiday season with the crazy deals on DealDash this weekend! Fall is here and the holiday shopping season 2020 is upon us! Don’t believe me? Just check out our newest YouTube video below – Jessica has a splashy surprise for you at the end!
The leaves are turning, temperatures are dropping, and it is about time to get ready for the holidays! Start stockpiling candy corn and turkey for Halloween and Thanksgiving, and it is never too early to begin shopping for the gift giving season. Maybe you already have begun by winning (or binning) an auction or two!
We are also getting ready for the holiday season here at DealDash. As the premier pay-to-participate auction site around, the biggest holidays for us are Black Friday and Cyber Monday. These are typically the days when we get even crazier than usual and offer the boldest promotions of the year. However, we are doing things a bit differently to launch holiday shopping in 2020. We are bringing in the action with our first ever Holiday Season pre-sale!
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.
