Four Things to Remember and One Thing Never to Forget

While Shopping for Holiday Gifts on DealDash

I will admit that I have been winning a few items a month to stash away for Christmas gifts for the past few months. Even though I pretty much have what I need for gift-giving, it’s almost impossible not to see something new on DealDash that catches my eye that I’d love to give as a gift. Below is my list of things to remember while shopping for holiday gifts on DealDash:

Read Item Descriptions – Here you can find out size dimensions and materials and other helpful information on the items you’re bidding on. Click on additional photos to see greater detail of each item and to determine if they are packaged in a box that would be great for gift presentation.

Up Your Strategy When Bidding – Holiday season is the busiest shopping time of the year, whether you’re shopping in the stores, buying online or bidding on DealDash. Know that there are other like-minded folks like you who are also trying to snag a great deal. Plan accordingly through increased number of bids, different days and times when  you bid or other strategy.

Utilize BidBuddy – It never fails that whenever I’m trying to keep an eye on my bids and really watch the progress and action of an auction, I get called away or distracted. There have been several times when stepping away for a few moments  cost me a win. Now I always use BidBuddy and top off if I know I have to step away.

Utilize the Buy It Now Option – It’s sometimes hard to stick to the No. 1 rule on DealDash and that is to only bid on items you truly want to win. One of the reasons behind this rule is that if it’s an item you truly want and you happen to lose the auction, you can always use the Buy It Now option, pay retail price for the item and get all the bids you placed into the auction back into your bid bank. It’s a complete win-win for bidders.

…And Never Forget – DealDash has amazing items and opportunities to win those items every single day of the year, 24 hours a day! If you don’t win the items you want in time for Christmas this year, just put them on your list and start winning a couple of items a month and to put away for next year’s holiday season.

Happiest of holidays to all and happy bidding on DealDash!
