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!
Time To Celebrate The Auction Runner-Up: 50% OFF the BIN price!
Starting tomorrow, DealDash will launch the new Runner-Up Discount Promotion. It works like this. The auctions will still be the same. Each bid raises the price by $0.01. The auction clock restarts from 10 seconds every time someone bids, and if no new bids are placed before the clock runs out, then they current highest bidder is the winner.
But here is where things change; when the promotion is active the auction runner-up will receive a special discount on the Buy It Now price. 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. We are excited to offer the Runner-Up Discount and begin to reward second-place finishers, too!
Awarding a Buy It Now discount to the auction runner-up is a big deal! The Buy it Now feature is an important part of DealDash that makes participating in a DealDash auction fun as you can be sure to get your bids back in the end AND get the item too. Experienced bidders often choose to bid in auctions for items that they are interested in buying, anyway. This way, they can try to win the auction first, and if they do not, they can BIN to get the item and the bids back. Now, during this promotion, the Buy It Now gets a whole lot sweeter for the auction runner-up.
