Back to School Deals

Think back to your childhood when you were a student. When summer drew to a close, were you dreading a return to the classroom? Or did it feel like Christmas Eve where you could not wait any longer for the first day of school to arrive? A lot of kids feel anxiety or get depressed when summer ends. These feelings are so common that experts call this the end-of-summer blues.

A mother gives a pep talk to her daughter to prepare her for the first day of school.
Parents might be even more excited for school to start than children are!

Now is the time of year when the end-of-the summer blues normally arrive, but maybe this year will be different. COVID has disrupted schools around the country, and many students didn’t have normal classes the past year and a half. One report estimates that over 168 million kids have had their education disrupted during the pandemic! This fall schools are preparing for students as more and more people get vaccinated and things (hopefully!) return to normal. Help the students in your life get ready for a return to the classroom by snagging some back to school deals on DealDash. We have an exciting promotion coming up to help eliminate the end-of-summer blues, our Get Ready To Learn Week extravaganza!

A week full of back to school deals!

Dealdash’s Get Ready To Learn Week begins on August 23rd and lasts until August 29th. The goal of this promotion is simple: make sure that we offer plenty of back to school deals to help students (and their parents) get ready for the upcoming school year. As they say, knowledge is fundamental, and so are deals! We have arranged to auction off all of the back-to-school essentials that students need to perform at their best. Studies have shown the importance of technology for students of all ages, so we will have auctions for laptops and phones. These devices allow children to learn through playing, which is becoming more and more common as educational apps and computer games are released.

Young students use laptops as a part of their daily school lessions.
A large part of education these days is getting students comfortable using technology.

Days full of learning can be tiring, so a good lunch is a can’t-miss part of the day for everyone. They say that there are two types of students; those who ate school lunches from the cafeteria and those who brought their own lunch. What side were you on? Were you carrying around plastic cafeteria trays? Or did you pull a brown paper bag out of your locker when lunch began? Nowadays school lunches have improved a lot since the good old days of spam and mashed potatoes. Lunch boxes have improved as well, and we have an auction scheduled for perhaps the best lunch box on the market, the Miranella TRU NOURISH Lunch Box. This lunch box features a large bowl, a small pot and a plate separated into five compartments. There are so many options, you could pack a different school lunch for every day of the year! These back to school deals are just a few of the many surprise auctions we have in store for you during our Get Ready to Learn Week.

Win in style

Our Get Ready to Learn week will not only offer great back to school deals. We also will have value-packed promotions, discount bids and special types of auctions to deliver the fun, exciting and savings that DealDash customers have grown used to. Keep an eye out for things like more No Re-entry Auctions, higher Time as Highest Bidder multipliers, and special bid pack purchase offers.

This guy is ready to have a rockin’ school year. Are you?

Saving money feels good, but it feels even better if you have fun while doing it. No need to study or cram for an exam! Just be ready to bid when our Get Ready to Learn Week begins!

A New Way To Get The Best Auction Deals

What were you like twelve years ago? Where did you live? Can you still fit into the same size pants that you wore a decade ago? If those pants don’t fit, there’s no need to feel bad. As time marches forward, a number of things besides a love for French fries contribute to weight gain in adults. Odds are, some things have changed. After all, twelve years is a long time!

Looking back at old electronics is a great way to see how quickly things can change over the years!

Twelve years ago, DealDash was the place to be for savvy shoppers who wanted to compete for the best auction deals for the brands they love, and that is still true today. However, some things have changed on DealDash over time. We have more brands than ever before, and thankfully the DealDash App and website have had a few makeovers over the years. Change is a constant here at DealDash as we are always looking to improve how bidders compete for the best auction deals. And with that in mind, we are proud to introduce your next favorite type of auction: No Re-entry Auctions.

Bid jumpers need not apply

You will recognize the No re-entry auctions from the knockout symbol.

No Re-entry auctions are a twist on how DealDash auctions work. The rules of these special auctions are simple:

  1. Only BidBuddy bids are allowed
  2. If you run out of bids after the “no jumper” limit, you are eliminated from the auction.
  3. Adding bids to an active BidBuddy is allowed.

These rules mean that someone can not bid early and then sit back and be inactive while others are actively bidding. This strategy is known within the DealDash Community as bid jumping. It is a polarizing strategy to say the least. With No Re-entry Auctions, only those in it and participating from the very start can proceed. 

In No Re-entry Auctions you need to be in it to win it! Only bidders with an active BidBuddy are allowed.

A chance to use a bidder’s best friend

The No Re-entry auctions do not allow manual bidding. This means that you need to use the BidBuddy to participate. While this may seem like a limitation, experienced bidders know that the BidBuddy is a great tool to help you win the best auction deals. Experienced DealDash bidder Theresa B. even wrote a guest blog post detailing how the BidBuddy helps her save time and money as she competes in the auctions.

Our Team has spent many sleepless nights fine tuning the BidBuddy to make it the perfect auction companion.

Over the years we have perfected the BidBuddy to be as helpful as possible, and now many DealDashers consider it their best friend…at least as far as chasing the best auction deals goes. The BidBuddy only places bids for you when the clock is about to hit zero – the best time. If other bidders are placing “single” bids, the BidBuddy won’t waste any of your bids. It will only place a bid when the auction is about to get sold to someone else. And if you win the auction any remaining bids will be returned to you. It’s a great tool to use especially when you can’t be at your computer. It’s also the best way to stay in the auctions, and conserve your bids. We hope you enjoy the new No Re-entry Auctions, and we hope to see you (and your BidBuddy) participating in them soon!

Score Great Cheap Father’s Day Deals This Weekend!

If someone asked you to list the most important jobs in the world, what would you say? Images of doctors and emergency first responders come to mind. Perhaps you would have politicians and judges on your list. Many folks had their lives changed forever by an amazing teacher or coach. And if you’ve ever been unfortunate enough to live through a garbage strike, then you know how important waste management workers are! Children have a slightly different take on things. The New York Post published a survey that asked kids what they want to be when they grow up. Most boys dreamed of becoming a pro athlete while the mist common answer for girls was to be a teacher.

A father laughs while shaving his beard as his son plays with shaving cream.
Being a dad is definitely one of the most important jobs in the world.

This weekend, June 19th-20th, we have arranged a celebration to pay tribute to one of the most important jobs we can think of—being a dad! So get ready for a weekend of promotions, special auctions and discounts that dads everywhere will love! This is your chance to get Amazing Cheap Father’s Day gifts! If you are not a father, fear not. You can enjoy DealDash’s Father’s Day Weekend Sale, too!

Expensive tastes on a cheap Father’s Day budget

The most popular Father’s Day gifts have not changed over the years. 50 years ago, Dads across America were receiving ties or cufflinks on Father’s Day, and decades later they still are a popular gift on Dad’s Day. Taking tradition into consideration, we planned auction blasts for the best Father’s Day gifts to take place on June 18th and 19th. This means you will have plenty of chances to snag dad (or yourself!) a cheap Father’s Day gift. From electronics to fashion to just the items needed for a summer full of outdoors activates, we have you covered.

A father and son both relax and enjoy a moment in the sunshine.
Father’s Day is a time for Dad’s everywhere to kick back and relax!

To make these Dad’s Day deals even better, we have made some important changes to the auctions during our Father’s Day Weekend Sale. To start with, the No Jumper Limit has been lowered to $3 from the usual $5. This means less competition in the auctions which gives you a better chance at a cheap Father’s Day deal! We also are offering a 50% off discount to everyone that wins an auction that starts during our Father’s Day Weekend event. We hope to see you and maybe your dad too take part!

Don’t forget the most important thing…

We have a big weekend planned for Father’s Day, 2021, and you shouldn’t miss it. But be sure to remember the most important thing about father’s day; spending time with family and thanking your father in person if you are lucky enough to be able to. DealDash has thousands of deals available each week, but each of us only has one set of parents, so it is important to stop and appreciate them every day, and especially on Father’s Day.

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there, and happy bidding to everyone!

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.
