We have Our New Year’s Resolutions Ready, Do You?

December is quickly passing by, and it is just about time for 2021 to come to a close. That means that you are probably busy looking for a new quirky wall calendar for 2022. Or maybe you are doing some last minute holiday shopping, or getting an early start on your New Year’s Resolutions.

Do you follow the tradition of making New Year’s Resolutions? Nowadays, the practice of making promises or commitments to begin a new year is the most popular in the United States, but the tradition itself comes from old practices from all over the world.

Do you plan on making any New Year’s Resolutions this year?

The month of January is named after the ancient god Janus, which the Romans worshiped. It was common in Roman culture to honor Janus by making promises to him at the beginning of the year. In medieval times, knights would also renew their commitment to virtue and chivalry by taking peacock vows after Christmas. These vows did not involve colorful birds with huge feathers, but are just another way to describe resolutions.

DealDash resolves to bring you a lot more of the things you already love…

For some folks, choosing their New Year’s Resolutions is tough! Should they focus on dropping a few pounds? Saving some more money? Chasing their dreams? Perhaps quitting a bad habit is the best choice. According to a poll published by Statista.com, the most popular resolution of 2021 was to get fit and exercise more. Some other New Year’s Resolutions included in the poll results were to volunteer to help a local charity, and to spend less time on social media.

A lot of folks are resolving to spend less time on social media for their New Year’s Resolution.

Here at DealDash, we think that all of these New Year Resolutions are great, and anyone who tries to set one as a goal and follow it has our respect. As far as DealDash goes, we already have our 2022 New Year’s Resolutions in place:

We resolve to bring you great deals on a wide range of products all while providing the most exciting shopping experience around.

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?

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.

From the Bottom of Our Hearts….Thank You for Your Service.

The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 marked a monumental moment in history; the end of World War I. This was the hour when Armistice between the Allied Forces and Germany took effect which ended all major hostilities of World War I. November 11th was known as Armistice Day until 1954, when it was renamed Veterans Day. As we approach Veterans Day this year, we want to take a moment to appreciate the selfless sacrifice that the members of the United States Armed Forces make. Thank you for your service.

If you know anyone who has served, thank them for their service this Veterans Day.

This year, millions of folks will be celebrating Veterans Day. There are over 1.4 million members of the United States Armed Forces currently, and Veterans Day honors all members of the Armed Forces, past and present. This raises the total number of Veterans in the united states to almost 20 million, according to research conducted by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

A day full of tradition

Veterans Day pays respect to those who have served. On Veterans Day, you can choose how you wish to say thank you for your service. Some folks give flowers or baked goods to their neighbors or family members who have served. Other Americans choose to donate to charities that support Veterans, like the Fisher House Foundation – a group that builds comfort housing where Veterans can stay for free.

Parades are a popular way to celebrate Veterans Day.

No matter how you choose to say thank you for your service, some Veterans Day traditions cannot be skipped. For one, the American Flag should always be flown at half mast on Veterans Day. There is also a two minute period of silence that begins at 11 AM. Some schools choose to close on Veterans Day, while others remain open. And if you intend to go to the grocery store or use public transit, be sure to check the schedule first; many businesses and public services operate on holiday schedules and reduced hours on Veterans day.

DealDash’s Veterans Day promotion

You can find some exciting promotions on DealDash this Veterans Day. We are increasing the Time As Highest Bidder Meter multiplier to 4X! That means you earn free bids four times faster than normal! We also are scheduling twice the amount of auctions than we normally do. This means that you will have more selection than ever! And if there are any Veterans reading this that are already DealDash bidders, please feel free to contact our Customer Support Team on Veterans day. Let them know you served or are serving, and we will credit your account with 100 free bids. It is our small way to say Happy Veterans Day 2021, and thank you for your service.

Late Night Deals Ahead

Nothing good happens after 2:00 AM. At least, that’s what a character on the mega-popular sitcom How I Met Your Mother said. The rule was based on the idea that decisions you make after two in the morning tend to be the wrong ones. The belief that late night spells trouble is something that you might have encountered in your working life. Have you ever had to work the night shift? If so, you’ve probably heard the term graveyard shift. This has nothing to do with headstones or monsters in the cemetery. It earned its name due to the high amount of disasters that happen between midnight and 4:00 AM.

A neon that reads, 'never close' indicates that a business is always open.
Some businesses are always open for the night owls who like to stay up late.

It can get a bit dangerous when the sun sets, and sometimes our decision-making skills deteriorate if we are tired, and especially if we are passing the late-night hours at a bar or night club with a drink or three. It’s understandable if you choose to spend the late-night hours tucked in bed, but DealDash has a new promotion that you might want to stay up for. So grab a cup of coffee and stay up late so you don’t miss our Late Night Deals (+Day Time Savings) Promotion!

Calling all night owls

This weekend, June 5th and 6th, you will be able to stay up late and find great late night deals on DealDash. From midnight to 4:00 AM PST (3:00 AM-7:00AM EST) we are launching several promotions and auction blasts just for our late night bidders. To start with, there will be an extra Time as Highest Bidder multiplier active on both nights which will help you progress through the bidding levels faster to earn more free bids.

We also have made the auctions easier to win by reducing the No Jumper Limit down to just $3. Less competition means there will be fewer bidders competing for the late night deals you are trying to win. And that’s not all! We are going to celebrate second place by activating the Runner Up Discount for many auctions starting during the weekend. For example, let’s say you came in second place in an auction for a purse auction. After the auction ends, you will receive a discounted Buy It Now offer for 50% the original price. 

A silver medal attached to a colorful ribbon lies on a table and is  a handsome reward for finishing second.
The Runner-Up Discount awards a discounted Buy It Now price to the second-place bidder in select auctions.

Night owls who manage to win any auction during our Late Night Deals Promotion will also earn a personal +1 Time as Highest Bidder multiplier for 3 hours. Reach the next level and free bids even faster! This can be earned both Saturday and Sunday!

Rock (and bid!) around the clock for late night deals

Some of us choose to set with the sun and go to bed early. It takes a lot for us to stay up past 10:00 PM, let alone all the way past midnight, when the Late Night Deals promotion begins. To reward the determined bidders who do stay up to take part this weekend, we have some special auctions planned. To start with, there will be special bid packs each night. These bid packs come in two sizes: 200 and 400 bids and are auctioned only during the night time.

We also want to pay tribute to insomniacs everywhere by auctioning off a deluxe coffee machine! This auction is a late night deal that all caffeine lovers will want, and it begins Sunday, 3:00 AM PST (6:00 AM EST).

A cup of specialty coffee is being made on a deluxe coffee machine.

Finally, we have not forgotten about those of you who like to go to bed early. We have something planned this weekend for our daytime bidders, too. The $3 No Jumper Limit and Runner Up Discount will run for 24 hours each day. No matter your preferred bidding time, the Late Night Deals Promotion has you covered.

How To Find The Best Deals Now!

When it comes to online shopping, you normally have to wait until November for the best deals. The Monday after Thanksgiving is when the huge e-commerce event Cyber Monday takes place, and year after year it delivers huge savings. Cyber Monday is when DealDash, and other online retailers offer cant-miss sales to reward customers. For example, last year we celebrated with a week-long event to make our awesome auctions even more appealing! Customers have taken notice, and since Cyber Monday’s debut in 2005, it has grown to become one of the biggest shopping days of the year. In 2020, sales topped over ten billion dollars, so it is no secret that there are plenty of bargains to be had on Cyber Monday.

Cyber Monday is always one of the biggest shopping days of the year.

But what do you do if want the best deals now? Do you have to wait until November after you’ve finished your turkey and pumpkin pie before you can grab some superb savings? Thankfully, the impatient auctioneers at DealDash don’t like waiting either and have come up with a crazy idea…why not celebrate Cyber Monday in May?

No need to wait until November for amazing savings

You do not need to wait until November to get the best online shopping deals. The Cyber Monday in May Sale lets you get the best deals now!

On top of that the Time As Highest Bidder Meter multiplier will be cranked all the way up to 3X. That’s right, you will earn time three times quicker than normal which translates to more free bids awarded to you! Who knows, you might hit a Milestone Level which awards an absurd amount of free bids!

A road leads to a sunny future and personal milestones.
Milestones (and lots of free bids) are in your future with our new Time As Highest Bidder Rewards.

Increased rewards are not the only thing we have in store for our Cyber Monday in May celebration. We also have some exciting auctions planned that will allow you to get the best deals now.
