Are you happy coming in second and being the auction runner-up? Second place is pretty good, right? Second place in the Olympics gets you a silver medal and most likely a parade when you return home. In major sporting tournaments like the U.S. Open Golf Championship, second place is worth over one million dollars!
And don’t tell Fabiano Caruana – the second-best chess player in the world- that he underachieving. He is a genius, even if he is not #1. But while second place is usually a great achievement, there are times when coming in second is pretty lousy. As race car driver Dale Earnhardt, Sr. famously said in an angry outburst, “Second place is the first loser.” Maybe Dale is right. After all, who remembers Walter Mondale (second in the 1984 US presidential election)? On DealDash, do you treasure your wins? Or do you happily remember the times when you were the auction runner-up in DealDash auctions? While it’s true that there can be only one highest bidder in an auction, we now have a new promotion that makes the first runner-up a winner, too!
Get prepared for the holiday season with the crazy deals on DealDash this weekend! Fall is here and the holiday shopping season 2020 is upon us! Don’t believe me? Just check out our newest YouTube video below – Jessica has a splashy surprise for you at the end!
The leaves are turning, temperatures are dropping, and it is about time to get ready for the holidays! Start stockpiling candy corn and turkey for Halloween and Thanksgiving, and it is never too early to begin shopping for the gift giving season. Maybe you already have begun by winning (or binning) an auction or two!
We are also getting ready for the holiday season here at DealDash. As the premier pay-to-participate auction site around, the biggest holidays for us are Black Friday and Cyber Monday. These are typically the days when we get even crazier than usual and offer the boldest promotions of the year. However, we are doing things a bit differently to launch holiday shopping in 2020. We are bringing in the action with our first ever Holiday Season pre-sale!
The year is 2009, and a young man just lost an auction. He spent $50 trying to win an iPad, but someone else outbid him and he was left empty-handed. Did he cry about it? Perhaps he even yelled out a few choice words? Maybe. But he also promised that he would never let this happen again—to him or anyone else. He ended up creating DealDash which is now the largest pay-to-participate auction site in the US. DealDash was founded to provide an auction experience where people don’t have to lose the money they spent bidding. This is still our mission today.
DealDash offers two key things to make sure that no one leaves an auction empty-handed. For starters, we offer a 90-day 100% money-back guarantee on a customer’s first bid pack purchase. This means that if you buy bids and decide that DealDash is not for you, we will refund your first bid pack purchase back to you in full! The second feature is called Buy It Now (BIN), and it is an important part of what makes DealDash the best auction site around.
What Does Buy It Now (BIN) Mean in Bidding?
The Buy It Now option (BIN for short) is for people who do not win an auction. It lets you pay the listed price for an item to get it sent to you. The bids you used in the auction trying to win the item are returned to your account instantly when you BIN. This way, you can try again to win a different auction without losing your bids. Auction sites that came before DealDash didn’t have this option which caused frustrating situations. You could spent a lot of money trying to win an item, but without any guarantees.
Yet, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Even if school and sports are on hold, we can still celebrate Labor Day together as hard-working Americans. Around the country many will be enjoying an extra day off by barbecuing with friends.
Looking for the Best Labor Day Deals?
DealDash, the internet’s top pay-to-participate auction site, plans on celebrating your hard work this year by bringing some fantastic direct to you! There are lists with great Labor Day deals across the internet and we want to add to them. We have too much planned to cram into just one day, so our Labor Day Celebrations run from September 5th to September 11th. Mark your calendars!
Here at DealDash we don’t just want to pass along savings through our exciting auctions, we also want every single one of our bidders to feel like a VIP, perhaps even royalty! Don’t believe us? Well, we have an auction to prove it! One of our Labor Day Deals this year is the opportunity to get your own piece of land or a lordship title in Scotland!
“I got this mountain bike for only $11!” If you watch any amount of TV, you have probably seen the new DealDash ad that begins with these words. The bike is an Adamant HydroRush H7, and the lucky gentleman who got it for only $11 saved $2,289 off the Buy It Now price —not too shabby! Don’t think that savings like this are scarce on DealDash. Winning a bike for $11 is an amazing result that also happens to be attainable on DealDash. We have auctioned off this bike over 400 times and the average final sales price is over 90% off the Buy It Now price. Winning a DealDash bike auction is the perfect way to get what you need to stay active and entertained in 2020.
