The one constant to life is change.
This famous quote, uttered by Greek philosopher Heraclitus, touches on the fluid nature of things. Change is happening all the time and is all around us! Bob Dylan shared this sentiment in his hit, The times they are a-Changing, a song recorded sixty years ago in 1963 that still resonates today.
Change can be exciting, but what if you are one of the many people who natually resists change? If this is the case, no need to worry. Some scientists state that being resistant to change is natural, and quite common! In fact, our brains might even be hardwired for it.
You probably are wondering why the DealDash Blog is talking about ancient Greek philosphers and Bob Dylan. Well, as you might have guessed by now, DealDash is changing things up in a big way!
Don’t worry, our low prices, great deals, and awesome product selection will remain the same. However, without further ado, it is time to introduce some of the big changes that might soon become your favorite part of DealDash.
Overload auctions are one of the new kinds of auctions launching on DealDash.
In auctions marked with the Overload icon, you can only book a maximum of 100 bids to the auction at any given time. You can top up your booked bids as often as you like, assuming you have less than 100 bids booked to the auction. If you try booking more than 100 bids to the auction, 100 bids are added, but the rest of the bids are left in your account.
How will Overload auctions change your bidding strategy? Only one way to find out; look for the icon indicating an Overload Auction (pictued above) and see for yourself!
Triple Booked Auctions
DealDash will be launching a new group of auctions; Triple-booked auctions. This new class of auctions could also change your bidding strategy in a big way.
You can only participate in three auctions marked with the Triple-Booked icon simultaneously. You can place single bids in as many Triple-Booked Auctions as you want, given that you have bids booked in two or fewer Triple-Booked Auctions. Once you have bids booked in three auctions, you can only bid in other Triple-Booked auctions if you cancel the bids booked in one auction. Placing single bids in Triple-Booked auctions where you have bids booked is possible. Participating in the Triple-Booked Auctions does not affect the number of regular auctions you can participate in.
Triple-booked auctions and Overload auctions are just a couple of many new kids of auctions that you will see soon on DealDash.
A more rewarding experience than ever!
It’s not just the auctions that are changing. We are introducing new ways to collect rewards! These new features will not replace the rewards you already love, like Time as Highest Bidder, and Daily Challenges. Instead, they are an added bonus to the things you already love.
Meet the Progress Meter, one of the newest ways to earn more rewards. The progress meter can be found on the event page when there is an ongoing event or on the Rewards and Challenges page.
To get rewards from the progress meter, you need to complete challenges that give you progress points as the reward. Read carefully – some of the challenges might take more than one day to complete!
Some events use a site-wide leaderboard to give rewards depending on where you are placed when the event ends. This is separate from the regular Auction leaderboards, so don’t get mixed up!
Leaderboards use points to rank bidders, and you can collect points in different ways depending on the event. For example, some leaderboard events count the number of bids placed in the event auctions, and others the total time as the highest bidder.
You can claim your rewards from the Progress Meter or Leaderboards after the event. Don’t worry: If you leave the rewards unclaimed, they can be claimed on your Coupons & Gift Cards page.
With all of these changes, you might have some questions! If so, do not hesitate to reach out to our amazing Support Team. They are available 24/7, and are happy to help during this time of amazing change!
Happy bidding, and we hope one of these changes becomes your new favorite part of DealDash.
