Don’t Miss DealDash’s Retro Revival Sale!

You’re probably familiar with the phrase, “Out with the old, and in with the new.” It’s a very popular mindset. Just pay attention to the commercials the next time you are watching TV. You’ll see ads for new types of cars, smart watches, and video games. You might even see a commercial advertising a new type of money! Most holiday sales will be featuring the newest and hottest items of the season, and we probably will too at some point this Autumn. But not this week. This week is all about the classics, the vintage, the retro. That’s right, it is DealDash’s Retro Revival Sale, and it is happening right now!

This week on DealDash, bidders can enjoy discount bid packs, a varying No Jumper Limit, special auctions like Leaderboards Auctions, and auctions for retro items, like a Playstation 1 and vintage-style home appliances!

Check out auctions for new retro items!

This week on DealDash during the Retro Revival Sale there are special auctions for great retro products that have not been available in our auctions until now.

Let’s start with video games – one of the most popular gift categories year after year. In fact, Americans have been playing more video games than ever! It is estimated that in 2021 alone, Americans spent over 51 Billion dollars on video games! In DealDash’s Retro Revival Sale, you will see several different video game systems up for auction, including one of the most popular video gaming systems of all time, the original Playstation!

Video games are a very popular holiday gift for children of all ages!

Retro items have become a very popular option for home decoration. One neat trend are items that both look vintage but also serve a purpose. You can see a few of these items this week on DealDash.

How about a classic-looking mini fridge that looks like it is straight out of the 1950’s? This item can hold up to 10 cans of your favorite drink, and its bright red and while colors will make you think you are in a vintage American soda fountain.

What would you keep in a retro mini fridge?

One item you will see on DealDash this week is a camera that blends retro style with modern technology – the best of both worlds! This camera has a vintage look, and would make a great centerpiece on a coffee table or shelf when not in use. But when it is put to the test, it can take pictures and then instantly print them! However, it is not just a replica of old-school polaroid cameras that also printed photos instantly. This camera has a companion app you can use on your smartphone to preview your pictures before you print them. You can even crop your pictures or add a stylistic border! This camera would make a great gift for a lucky friend or family member, or perhaps it would make a great gift for you!

Photography is timeless – it is always in style.

Don’t miss out on special auctions this week

In addition to the auctoins for great retro items, there is even more excitement packed into DealDash’s Retro Revival Sale. Some of our favorite special auction types are back. This week you can participate in Leaderoard Auctions that award free bids to bidders, and you will also notice that the No Jumper Limit is varying; you will see it set to different levels in different auctions. And last but certainly not least, you will find bids on sale for as low as 12 cents per bid this week.

Good taste (and great deals!) never go out of style, so we hope you enjoy our retro-themed auctions and promotions this week. Happy bidding!

Where Do Great Deals Come From? It Starts With DealDash Suppliers

A cornerstone of DealDash has been helping our customers save money. If you’ve had the chance to bid in a DealDash auction, you probably noticed significant savings in comparison to what you would typically find in a big box store or at the mall. But have you ever wondered how we do it? It all starts with our trusted network of DealDash suppliers.

Great deals start with our trusted suppliers.

Keep reading to find out all about the DealDash suppliers, how we work with them to pass savings on to you, and a special weeklong liquidation event starting soon on DealDash.

Great suppliers create a win-win-win relationship

Since 2009, we have partnered with dozens of companies from around the world to fuel the auctions that you know and love. Want to take a guess at how many items we have brought to auction with the help of our suppliers? Over 2 million! Our efforts have not gone unnoticed either as we were awarded  the “Best Excess Inventory Liquidation Service – USA” award at the 9th annual award ceremony held by Global Brands Magazine.

Global Brands Magazine recognized DealDash as the Best Excess Inventory Liquidation Service in 2021.

Awards are nice, but our supplier partnerships serve a much more important purpose; obtaining a diverse product catalog that can be sold in our online auctions at far below retail prices, on average. In fact, we look at the partnerships with our suppliers as a true win-win-win scenario. Our suppliers win by being able to move large amounts of excess inventory without destroying the value of their brand. We win by having access to a variety of brands and their products from all around the world to fill our auctions win. And last but certainly not least, our customers win by being able to bid on and win these products that are often sold for a fraction of the suggested MSRP price.

A partnership that goes beyond savings

Perhaps the best part of our partnerships with the DealDash suppliers is that the benefit goes beyond a great deal. It is more important than that. For starters, we are motivated to help companies avoid having to discard and destroy unsold merchandise. The practice of destroying excess product is unfortunately all to common, and many brands have come under fire in recent years as videos showing luxury jackets being slashed or purses being burned go viral as they are shared online.

High fashion meets the landfill all too often.

The reason brands resort to destroy items is to maintain pricing power. Imagine if a luxury purse company discounted last year’s bags at 50% off the normal MSRP price. Savvy customers would take note. They would simply wait for an end of the season sale to get a great bag at a nice discount. So instead of discounting items, some brands destroy them instead. This way they don’t have to lower prices to move goods. We help them solve that problem by purchasing excess inventory from them and then auctioning it off. We never list products below the MSRP without the permission of the brand. Only the auction winner may purchase the item at the final auction price, everyone else has the option to purchase the item at the “Buy it Now” price, which is set at the MSRP unless otherwise agreed with the brand.

Don’t miss out on Inventory Liquidation Week on DealDash

June 6th to June 13th is the perfect time for you to get on DealDash. That week is Inventory Liquidation Week. Each day we run multiple auctions at the same time for featured liquidation items. We’ll also make the auctions more exciting than ever by offering big discounts on the final sales price of the auction. This means that the winner will be entitled to 50% or even 90% for select auctions. You can find Auction Leaderboards that reward bidders with free bids for collecting time as highest bidder during an auction. We will be offering our Runner-up discount to second place finishers in select auctions, too! And if all that excitement isn’t already enough, keep your eyes on the No Jumper Limit during Inventory Liquidation Week: sometimes it will be lower than the normal $5.

We hope to see you in the auctions, and thanks for being the best part of DealDash.

Cyber Monday Week Is Still Here!

Do you have the Black Friday blues? Are you afraid that the best shopping days of the year have passed you by? After all, the biggest shopping day of the year for brick and mortar stores, Black Friday, has come and gone. And Cyber Monday, the biggest day of the year for online shopping, is over this year, too. Cyber Monday takes place every year on the Monday that follows Thanksgiving. This year it was on November, 29th. It is the day when online retailers offer their biggest discounts of the year to try and entice holiday shoppers. It is a relatively new event, having been around for only 16 years or so. In fact, the original iteration of Cyber Monday looked a bit different.

A computer screen searched for Cyber Monday Deals on the internet.
If you are sad that Cyber Monday is over, check out DealDash this week!

One online flower shop tried marketing White Wednesday as a shopping event for Americans to enjoy before Thanksgiving, but it did not catch on. Perhaps folks were too worried about what stuffing recipe they were going to use, or if deep frying their turkey would be a tasty idea, or just a terrible one.

You might be asking why you are reading all about Cyber Monday if it has already passed this year. It’s a bit early to get excited for Cyber Monday 2022-edition, right? Well, good news. The DealDash Team realized that all the promotions, auctions and deals for Cyber Monday could not be packed into a single day, so we extended our celebrations to be an entire week! Right now on DealDash it is Cyber Monday Week, so pull up a chair and pull out your favorite bidding device and get on DealDash ASAP to see what all the fuss is about!

Follow the leader

One exciting part of DealDash’s Cyber Monday Week Sale is the Leaderboard Auctions. Leaderboard Auctions are a special twist on the normal DealDash auctions that you know and love.

These auctions work as normal, but with one special twist; a leaderboard has been added to the auction page! The leaderboard will display the name of the bidders who have collected the most TAHB (Time as Highest Bidder) in that auction.

Leaderboard Auctions track the amount of TAHB time bidders earn in an auction and reward the top finishers!

When the auction ends, the three bidders who have collected the most TAHB in that auction will earn additional bid rewards!

More free bids during Cyber Monday Week

Cyber Monday Week on DealDash gives you the opportunity to earn more free bids than normal! Each day, the Time As Highest Bidder meter has a bonus multiplier attached to it. Some days it is 2X, other days it is 3X, and if you happen to visit DealDash on the right day during Cyber Monday Week, you will see even a 4X multiplier!

Just bid in the auctions as you normally do, and collect 2X, 3X or 4X on your TAHB meter!

Just visit DealDash.com or open up the DealDash App on your favorite device to get in on the Cyber Monday Week excitement. The best time to do your holiday shopping is now, so what are you waiting for?

Black Friday on DealDash: A Whole Week of Epic Promotions!

Did you know that Black Friday dates back to the late 1800’s when large department stores like Macy’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 done our best to provide you with the most epic auctions and promotions this Black Friday on DealDash! Here is a sneak peek at what we have in store!

Mega blasts are here!

We feel that our Black Friday Promotion should not center around one day, but rather there should be a lot happening throughout the week! As such we will kick off the week with a blast of 100 auctions on Monday morning at 8:00 AM Pacific Time! A blast means that there are a lot of auctions starting at the same time – in this case 100!

100 auctions are all scheduled to start at the same time on November, 29th, at 8:00 AM Pacific Time!

If you happen to miss Monday Kickoff, don’t fret. There are also other blasts throughout the week! On Tuesday 40 auctions will start at the same time at 4:00 PM Pacific Time, and another 40 at 8:00 AM Pacific Time on Wednesday. On Black Friday itself, we are planning on having 5 big blasts! At 8:00 AM Pacific Time, 100 auctions will go live, as well as four separate 50 auction blasts in the evening starting every hour between 3:00 PM and 6:00 PM Pacific Time. Over the weekend, we will have auction blasts for specific categories of items at 8:00AM, 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM Pacific Time on both days!

Are there any discounts, other twists, or Flash Sales?

You bet there is! For all auctions starting between Monday and Wednesday you have to pay only 50% of the final auction price when you win an auction! On Thanksgiving and Black Friday, we’ll boost your Time As Highest Bidder (TAHB) by 5X on Thanksgiving and 4X on Black Friday! Besides the TAHB increases, both days contain 90%-off Flash Sales! Over the weekend, we let our customers enjoy runner-up auctions! In those auctions, the first runner-up will receive a personal 50% off Buy It Now offer when the auction ends. Also remember to check the daily challenges, there are some super rewards waiting for you if you complete those!

Surprise hours

The daily promotions are also spiced up with Surprise hours throughout the week with extra perks for active bidders! Be on the lookout for Surprise hours – you’ll find information on our daily newsletter or push notifications to your mobile device when the Surprise hour is about to start. If you do not receive our Daily Newsletter email, contact DealDash Support to get yourself added to the list! The surprise hours entail for example bid pack offers and TAHB multipliers! Oops, I might have let the cat out of the bag there! Maybe I shouldn’t have mentioned those quite yet…

Enough about all that, where are the video game consoles?!?

We got you covered here, too! Over the past few months our Procurement Team has worked like crazy to gather enough Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles to satisfy the demand we expect to see! This Black Friday you will see more than a dozen of these consoles go up for auction on DealDash. Even Jack Bauer might face a challenge to keep track of all of those!

But wait! There is still more!

One question we get all the time is, when is the next car auction coming up? Kaboom! The answer is next week of course! We will be auctioning the 2022 BMW X3 sDrive30i – Jet Black on 4:oo PM Pacific Time on Black Friday. As a heads up, we will also be auctioning SWFT MAXX e-Moped on Cyber Monday at 4:00PM Pacific Time. Besides the vehicles, we try to introduce one new special item each day – ranging from 4K QLED TVs to R2-D2!

Less bidders, less competition

Don’t feel like bidding against too many others? Good thing we have multiple No New Bidders flash sales planned as well!

  • Monday: No new bidders after $1 Flash Sale between 4:00 PM-6:00 PM
  • Tuesday: No new bidders after $2 Flash Sale between 4:00 PM-6:00 PM
  • Thursday: No new bidders after $1 Flash Sale between 8:00 AM-10:00 AM as well as 4:00 PM-6:00 PM
  • Saturday: Whole day has No new bidders after $3 twist in place, instead of the normal $5

The blasts are great opportunities to catch a deal – especially as some of those blast auctions are mystery auctions. The mystery auctions are marked with a question mark, and the item is revealed only 5 minutes before the auction starts! Best of all, no Bid Buddies can be booked before that meaning that there is likely to be less competition in these auctions!

What if I want to shop for my family, but I don’t win an auction?

No need to worry! You can always purchase the item at the Buy it Now price within 7 days of the auction ending. What about all of the bids you placed in the auction, you may ask? You get them all back! Every time you use the “Buy it Now” option, every bid you placed in that auction is returned to your bid balance, so you can try again in new auctions without buying more bids!

If you are new to DealDash or the bidding fee online auction model and want to give it a try, use the promo code “dealdash2021” upon registration to get an extra 100 free bids with your first Bid Pack purchase.
