For the past decade, DealDash has offered special online auctions that stand out from many of the others . Millions of bidders have signed up and given DealDash a try, so it is no secret why DealDash and auctions go hand in hand for a lot of folks. But believe it or not, DealDash did not invent auctions. In fact, the origins of the modern day auctions we know and love can be traced back all the way to the Roman Empire! The word auction comes from the Latin word “auctum” which translates to “I increase”. The Romans would hold auctions for land, livestock and other valuables after a successful military campaign. Since then, there have been a lot of different types of auctions invented, with DealDash’s special online auctions being one of the best types of auctions around.
After all, DealDash has thousands of rave reviews, so we must be doing something right! And while many folks think that a DealDash auction is the best type of auction, let me tell you a little secret: not all DealDash auctions are created equal. There are different types of DealDash auctions that change how the bidding process works, and clever bidders know how to spot the difference. Can you? Keep to learn all you need to know about the different kinds of DealDash auctions.
Take the lead to win big in these auctions!
If you like to earn free bids, we have just the thing for you: Auction Leaderboards. 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.
Make sure you collect enough Time As Highest Bidder to enter the top 3 positions in the leaderboard. When the auction ends, the three bidders who have collected the most TAHB in that auction will earn additional bid rewards! Our Leaderboard Auctions are coming back later this month (April, 2021), so keep an eye out for them! We want to see you finish at the top of the leaderboard!
Celebrate 2nd place in these auctions!
They say that second place is just the first loser, but that is not the case in our special Runner-up Auctions! These special online auctions work 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. These awesome runner up auctions don’t take place every day, but they do happen a few times a month so keep your eyes open.
Get exactly what you want in these auctions!
Normally, the winner of a DealDash auction has the choice to receive the item they won, or trade their win back to bids. This newest type of special online auction actually takes away one of those choices! Yes, that’s right, I am talking about our No Exchange auctions!
The name is pretty self-explanatory. There will be no exchange to bids offer presented for the winner. This way, the field of bidders is limited to just the folks who want to win that specific item. And you do not need to be great at math to understand that fewer bidders means easier auction wins!
We really hope you enjoy all the different types of DealDash auctions. As always we love listening to your feedback, suggestions, and ideas for new stuff you’d like to see. Our support team is just a click away 24/7, so feel free to contact us any time!
