The COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak recently has shocked the whole world. Growing public health concerns present challenges for many families and affect businesses varyingly across the country. Today we are announcing a coronavirus charity donation to The American Red Cross taking place this Saturday. Similarly to the charity donation last October, we are donating the final sales price of all auction wins paid on Saturday 3/21/2020 to The American Red Cross(excluding car auctions). We also want to share that we expect DealDash shipments to continue unaffected. Overall, we want to continue providing fun and excitement to people staying at home and auctions will continue normally.Continue reading “Coronavirus Charity Donation: Together We Can Help!”

We continue on the series of presenting our customers. Now it’s time to hear what Shirley says about bidding on her favorite online auction. Based on the chat we had with her, Shirley loves all the artsy auctions she’s won. She is reminded daily of her previous wins by the artwork, sculptures and clocks on her wall. The decorations are something she feels she wouldn’t have afforded in the retail market herself:
My best memory is an accumulation of all these wonderful things that I’ve been able to acquire. Items I would never be able to get in the retail market. The artwork in my home, the sculptures, the clocks – they’re all well made, they look gorgeous and it makes my home that much better.Shirley

About the roadmap to 2020
Most people agree there are only three things in life we can be sure of–death, taxes, and change. Of course, we cannot do anything about death or taxes, but things changing could be either good or bad. We want to talk about change in this roadmap to 2020.
When it comes to shopping on DealDash.com, we try to listen to our customers and make the best possible changes based on that to cater to the needs of a variety of different style of bidders.
This blog post will first take a look at some of the changes that took place on DealDash in 2019 and then take a sneak peak of what is to be excepted for 2020 and the new decade!
Let’s first take a look at 2019
The year started with our new winning limits in place. We wanted more people to be able to win auctions so we set weekly winning limits to DealDash auctions. A user can no more win over 50 auctions in a week, leaving more space for others to go towards the win. It’s ideas like these we receive from our customers that make a change in the auctions for everyone.
In March we headed towards the DealDash 10 year anniversary celebrations, which continued throughout the year.
We’re also happy to say the celebrations are not over yet, stay tuned for the Grand Finale!
10 years in business is a long time in the internet era and we are thankful for all the loyal customers that have been a part of the journey – some even since the very beginning in 2009! Some might be familiar faces from the YouTube videos James posts to our YouTube channel where customers have contributed actively to the videos.
Every BidBuddy Counts
One of the more interesting promotions we ran during 2019 was the Every BidBuddy Counts where bidders would receive 9 seconds of Time as Highest Bidder whenever their BidBuddy automatically placed a bid. Furthermore, if there were any active Time as Highest Bidder multipliers, whether personal or site-wide, these would stack for the full effect.
The promotion was so well received that after customer feedback we decided to launch it permanently in November. James has a good description of what it’s all about in this YouTube video below:
So what does the Roadmap to 2020 look like?
We have some exciting plans for the new decade. After all, in addition to the calendar, it’s a whole new decade for DealDash as well. The roadmap to 2020 covers amongst others this:Continue reading “DealDash: a New Decade and Roadmap to 2020”
