Happy Birthday To Us: DealDash 13th Birthday is here!

This week marks an important milestone…a few of them, in fact. International Women’s Day took place on March, 8th, a day that celebrates women all around the world. On March 10th, some health-conscious Americans will celebrate National Pack Your Lunch Day—a day that encourages Americans to skip ordering pizza and instead bring something tasty and healthy from home. This is an important movement considering that the average American spends over $1,200 on fast food each year! But on DealDash, we are celebrating a different important milestone; the DealDash 13th Birthday celebration!

Come open some birthday presents with us on DealDash this week!

Our birthday celebration is already in full swing, so don’t wait, come and enjoy the final days of our week-long birthday party with us!

We are multiplying the rewards and deals

This week we are offering bigger rewards to the most important people in our lives, our customers! You can count on an increased Time As Highest Bidder rewards until the final day of our 13th Birthday Sale, March 13th. For those bidders that may not know, TAHB (Time As Highest Bidder) is a big fan favorite with DealDash bidders. Simply put, TAHB is another way that DealDash gives you free bids for simply bidding. When you are the highest bidder in an auction, your TAHB bidding meter fills up. When it is full DealDash gives you 100% free bids.

Bidders are able to reach up and grab free bids when they complete a TAHB level!

The more you bid, the faster your TAHB meter fills up and rewards you with free bids.

And maybe you will be able to reach a Milestone Level during our special 13th DealDash Birthday celebration.

What’s 90% off of an already great deal?

One final special twist we want to share with our wonderful bidders to help celebrate our 13th DealDash Birthday is a special discount for our auction winners. How much of a discount, you ask? Great question! Since we are turning 13, 13% off the final sales price of the auction could make sense…but that is not quite good enough. Perhaps double that to 26%? A bit better, but not suitable for our 13th DealDash Birthday extravaganza. We decided on 90% off on Saturday and Sunday!

A promo banner advertises 90% off for a limited time.
If you win an auction this week, you can take 90% off the final sales price of the auction!

Our birthday promotion will last until the end of Sunday, March 13th, and we really hope to see you in the auctions. No need to bring us a gift. And while we cannot promise you any birthday cake, we can promise some auction excitement along with some great promotions. Happy birthday to us, and happy bidding to you!

DealDash Goes North!

DealDash launches in Canada

Next March DealDash turns thirteen! We launched in 2009, and a lot has changed since then. If you were bidding on DealDash when we first launched, you had the chance to bid on and win iPods and DVDs, among other things. Now DealDash bidders who are interested in electronics go after smartphones and laptops. Keeping with the theme of change, we have an announcement to make; we are going to Canada! Or, to put it more specifically, we went to Canada already! We launched DealDash Canada earlier this year.

Canadian flags blow in a summer breeze.
DealDash now serves the two largest countries in North America; The U.S.A. and Canada!

Get ready for international bidding

We opened our doors to Canadians in the beginning of January, 2022, and since then Canadian bidders have won hundreds of auctions. You might have already seen a DealDash Canada review posted by one of these happy auction winners, and we want to congratulate them all.

DealDash ships for free to US and Canada

Now, savvy shoppers from all over the contiguous United States and Canada (excluding Quebec) can enjoy exciting auctions that provide bigtime savings on all sorts of items. From kitchenware to new cars, you can find it on DealDash. And remember, shipping is always free! No need to pay any shipping fees or use a freight forwarding service if you are a DealDash member!

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it

There might be some longtime DealDash bidders who aren’t thrilled with the idea of DealDash changing. After all, there is the classic saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!” One concern longtime DealDash bidders could have regarding our expansion to Canada is that now there are more bidders which would make it harder to win auctions.

The good news is that there is no need to worry because we have a simple solution; if there are more bidders then we make sure to have more auctions. We closely monitor things like the amount of bids used to win an auction and the average sales price of an item to ensure that our customers get great deals. In fact, we provide this information to you on the Auction page as the estimated total cost figure. It takes into account the final sales price of an item + the total amount of bids used to provide the amount that the win cost the auction winner.

The estimated total cost is important information that DealDash and DealDash Canada bidders should review.
We welcome our Canadian friends to our auctions while making sure that there are plenty of great deals for everyone.

Change is a constant, both in our lives and also on DealDash. But no matter what, we will make sure that while we keep making changes to improve DealDash for everyone, we will remain true to our values that have shaped the DealDash you know and love.

DealDash PS5 For Only $0.50 – Too Good To Be True?

DealDash advertises a PlayStation 5 console being sold for only $0.50.

You might have seen the ad on TV about the PlayStation 5 that was sold for $0.50 on DealDash. 50 cents? There must be something fishy going on with a price like that. Maybe there are some hidden fees? Surely this is not all that the customer paid for the PS5 on DealDash? What about shipping costs?

Read on as we go in to detail on how the end price of an auction is formed.

The $0.50 PlayStation 5 Console…

…and a 55-inch TV! In July 2021 a DealDash bidder couldn’t believe their eyes as they only placed 2 bids to win the auction for a bundle of the brand new PS5 console and a 55″ TV.

The total cost of that auction for the winner was the final auction win price of $0.10 + an estimated $0.20 per bid they placed. And shipping is always free on DealDash!

Your Go-To Place For Gaming Deals

In addition to the PlayStation consoles you’ll regularly find auctions for the new Xbox Series X consoles and full home theatre bundles together with TV’s and audio systems.

And if you are in search of hand held gaming devices, you will find us auctioning the Nintendo Switch Lite consoles often too. No gaming setup is perfect without a pair of gaming headphones with a microphone and a curved display. Be sure to check out the auctions!

The Math Behind The 50¢ PS5

There have been articles opening up the math behind auctions on DealDash in the past. On DealDash the total cost for the winner consists of the auction end price and any pre bought bids they placed in the auction. There’s absolutely no hidden costs involved!

A total of 40 PlayStation 5 consoles have been auctioned on DealDash by the time of writing this blog (Jan 2022). On average the winner has saved over 60% off the Buy It Now price of the auction including the cost of bids.

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.

A person sits with pen, paper, and a cup of coffee to write their New Year's Resolutions.
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:

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?
