Knowledge Is Power: A Map to Find Free Bids

Being a bidder on DealDash can mean a lot of things. For starters, it probably means you enjoy the thrill of a great bargain. You also probably like shopping from the comfort of your own home, on your own terms. It definitely means that you are ahead of the curve when it comes to shopping trends! But it also indicates something else: you have bids. DealDash operates on the pay-to-participate model, so you need to buy bids before you can bid in an auction. By charging a small fee for bids, DealDash is able to pass on huge savings in the auctions. Buying bids is no big deal. The bid price varies based on the active promotions, but you can often find them on sale for 15 cents per bid, or less!

Bids might be inexpensive, and they definitely help bidders grab fantastic discounts on auction wins ranging from cookware to cars, but there is something that bidders love even more than DealDash bids; free DealDash bids! And if you have spent any time on DealDash at all, you probably know of a few different ways y0u can get free bids on DealDash. For one, there is the Time as Highest Bidder Meter which gives you a free bid bonus each time you fill the meter and advance to the next level. There are also special auction types, like Leaderboard Auctions that give out free bids to the top finishers.

You may know about these things already, but did you know that you can schedule a call with us to chat about the DealDash experience and earn free bids? Have you heard about our YouTube Channel that releases a video each week with a challenge you can complete to earn free bids? Keep reading to learn more about these fun, lesser known ways to get complimentary bids added to your account each and every week.

We want YOU to watch our Youtube videos!

Did you know that we have an official DealDash YouTube Channel? We do, and it has been in operation for over four years! It is a great place to unwind and see DealDash customer interviews, get to know some of the DealDash Team, and participate in weekly challenges to earn free bids! Each Monday a new video is released. Each video contains a challenge for you to complete.

Make sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel to stay informed and also to earn some free bids!

Normally the challenge is a question posed to the viewers, and you can record your answer and submit it to us by sending it to [email protected], and free bids will be yours! The videos are great fun to watch on their own, and the fact that they give you the chance to earn free bids make them all the better.

Chat with us to give feedback and get free bids

Customer feedback is a huge tool for us. It tells us what works, and what we should change. How do we solicit customer feedback? For starters, our amazing Support Team is available 24/7 to collect feedback and answer any questions that come up. We also invite auction winners to leave a review of the products they win. These product reviews help us determine what items folks like best. And yes, you get free bids for taking the time to leave us a product review. We have collected thousands upon thousands of product reviews over the years, and most folks know about them. But a much lesser-known way that we collect feedback is through customer calls. A DealDash customer call is a short interview between you the customer and a DealDash employee.

Schedule a call with DealDash today to get free bids and to share your feedback with us!

What makes these calls unique is that the DealDash employee works in a team outside of customer support. This gives the DealDash employees who normally don’t chat with customers a chance to get to know our bidders and interview them a bit about the DealDash experience. Book a Customer Call using this link, and once the call is completed, you will earn a special DealDash Customer Call badge and 100 free bids. Book a call soon – we’d love to chat with you and find another reason to give you more free 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 “dealdash2022” upon registration to get an extra 100 free bids with your first Bid Pack purchase.

Prepare Yourself for 4th of July Deals This Weekend!

This weekend is your last chance to prepare for America’s 246th birthday party. That’s right, the 4th of July is right around the corner! For those who need a gentle history lesson, the 4th of July celebrates the day the United States of America declared independence from Great Britain, on July 4th, 1776. We live in a big country, and specific 4th of July traditions might vary from state to state, but Americans all across the country generally celebrate the 4th of July the same; with fireworks, a barbeque with friends and family, and perhaps attending a local parade put on by school students and the fire department.

A newer tradition for some Americans is hunting for 4th of July Deals, and DealDash has you covered in that regard. Keep reading to learn more about typical 4th of July traditions and what DealDash has in store for 4th of July weekend.

Time for fireworks!

Fireworks are a huge part of a typical 4th of July celebration. In fact, Americans love fireworks so much that more than a billion dollars of fireworks are sold in the USA each year!

A beautiful fireworks show fills the sky on the 4th of July.
It just wouldn’t be the 4th of July without a fireworks show.

Depending on where you are celebrating 4th of July, you have a few different options about how to get your firework fix. One choice is to buy your own. Fireworks stands pop up in parking lots all around the country and for just a few dollars you can buy some ground blooms, Piccolo Petes, and sparklers. Just be sure to practice proper safety precautions if you decide to light off fireworks of your own. Another option is to watch a larger fireworks show. A general rule of thumb is, the bigger the city, the bigger the fireworks show! You can look at an online guide to see what’s happening in your area. You can even watch these fireworks shows on T.V.!

If it’s fireworks that you’re after, why not check out DealDash’s 4th of July Weekend sale? As you know, each time you win an auction on DealDash, you are treated to your own personal fireworks show that fills up your screen after the wining bid has been placed and the timer hits zero. DealDash is the perfect way to kill two birds with one stone by getting your favorite 4th of July deals and a fireworks show at the same time!

We want it to be fun and rewarding for our bidders during our 4th of July Weekend event, so we are adding some exciting twists to the auctions during this event, which runs from Saturday, July 2nd, to Sunday, July 3rd. For starters, on Saturday we are offering a 3X multiplier on Time As Highest Bidder progress, which means you will progress from bidder level to bidder level three times as fast! As you increase your level, watch out for milestone rewards, which offer a huge amount of free bids! We also will be offering our Runner Up Discount promotion and the auctions will have a lowered No Jumper limit of just $3, which reduces competition.

Don’t forget about Sunday!

Sunday is shaping up to be a great day for bidders, too! In addition to the 3X Time as Highest Bidder multiplier, all auctions have a 50% off discount for the auction winner. That means if you win a 4th of July deal for a final sales price of $10, you only need to pay $5. And as always, shipping is free. And last but not least, on Sunday you can earn even more free bids by bidding in Leaderboard Auctions; auctions that award free bids for being the highest bidder the longest. With all of these special auction twists and rewards, this weekend sale event has everything you need to help you collect all of the 4th of July Deals you want. And who knows, maybe it will become an important annual summer tradition, too!

Be safe, be grateful, and be proud to be a part of America’s 4th of July celebration this year.

No matter where you find yourself this 4th of July, we hope you have a fun and above all, safe celebration. Be sure to stay informed on local restrictions regarding fireworks, and if you’ve enjoyed a few adult beverages during a 4th of July party, put down your keys and call a taxi. We hope to see you in the auctions this weekend, and happy 4th!

It’s A Cool, Cool Summer!

We are approaching mid-June and Midsummer is almost here! That means warmer temperatures, longer days, and a great DealDash summer sale for you!

The summer solstice marks the longest day of the year. Of course, the actual length of the day depends on where you are in the world. For example, if you are celebrating the summer solstice in New York City, you can expect a day that is just over 15 hours long. If you fund yourself farther north, in Stockholm, Sweden for example, you can expect a day that is 18 hours and 30 minutes long. And if you find yourself way up north inside the arctic circle, perhaps in Rovaniemi, Finland, the day is 24 hours long! Imagine that; watching the sun move up and down in the sky and not seeing it set for months on end!

The summer solstice is celebrated differently in different parts of the word. In some places the day marks an occasion of mischief and superstition, while in other places, the summer solstice gives an opportunity to reflect on past violent conflicts and to wish for a peaceful future. And on DealDash, the summer solstice gives bidders the opportunity to enjoy a great summer sale complete with special promotions and discount bids. Sound interesting? Keep reading to learn more!

Different meanings in different places

The summer solstice always marks the longest day of the year, and it normally is on June 21st. However, the day itself takes on different meanings in different places and cultures.

Beautiful flower crowns are a part of many midsummer celebrations around the world.

In parts of Scandinavia and Finland, people make beautiful flower crowns to wear. This makes use of the vast amounts of wild flowers that are typically in bloom, and it also celebrates fertility. This customer is practiced by men and women alike of all ages.

Some midsummer customs take on a supernatural element. In parts of Finland, some people believe that placing birch twigs in certain parts of their home could guarantee fertility. Some folks even practiced a superstition to try and see their future spouse! To do this, they would walk outside at night and peer into a well naked!

In Northern Ireland, the summer solstice takes on an entirely different meaning. There, June 21st is called The Day of Private Reflection. It is taken as an opportunity for people to reflect on the violent domestic conflicts that have been a part of Northern Ireland’s history. People think back on the past and collectively imagine a peaceful future together. It is a relatively new holiday, having been celebrated only since 2007, but the message is an important one and here’s hoping that it is an important day of remembrance that is celebrated for centuries to come.

A great time of year to be on DealDash

Here at DealDash, we want to make some great summer solstice traditions for you to enjoy, too! While we don’t offer flower crowns or superstitions to see the future, we have a lot of things going on during our week-long summer sale. It begins on June 20th, and lasts until June 26th. During this summery promotion, you can enjoy bids on sale for prices ranging from 12 cents to 14 cents a bid. We also will be bringing back our ever-popular Leaderboard Auctions, and the Runner-Up Discount, too!

All of us that make up the DealDash Team hope that you start off summer right. That could mean a family camping trip, firing up the BBQ, or just enjoying long evenings with your best friends and a cold beverage. Be sure to add our DealDash summer sale to your summer to-do list, and we hope to see you in the auctions soon!
