Halloween Safety Tips from DealDash

DealDashWith Halloween just a week and a few days away it’s time to think about safety tips. Here safety tips you need to know, from DealDash.

Sure, you can get a great bargain on DealDash, but do you know what else you can get? Tips, tricks, and advice about a multitude of things. Today we are going to be talking about Halloween safety tips. These are very important tips, because with all of the children out on Halloween night it doesn’t hurt to be extra careful. Here are some things that you’ll want to keep in mind about Halloween safety, from DealDash.

Costume Safety

There are few things more important than costume safety. Costume safety can mean the difference between a car being able to see your child at night or not. Be sure that your child’s costume is a good fit, and they are able to see out of the eyes and hear if they have a mask covering their ears.

I know that Halloween is a spooky time where many of the costumes are black, but please make sure that the costume isn’t completely black – and if it is, add a reflective strip so that cars will be able to see your child in the dark.

Stranger Safety

Halloween is one of the few times of the year when children are encouraged to knock on stranger’s doors and speak to them. Children who wouldn’t normally speak to a stranger have no qualms about doing it on Halloween to get candy. If your children are young enough that you want to accompany them to every house, then it’s no problem.

However, if you have a child that’s a bit older who wants to go with their friends instead of mom, dad, or the grandparents then encourage them to use caution. Try to get them to agree to only go to neighbor’s houses that you know. If that isn’t possible, then ask them to send you a quick “check-in” text after every 20 houses. It might not be a “cool” thing to do in front of their friends, but their safety is paramount.

Safety on DealDash

Speaking of safety, did you know that DealDash has it’s very own safety net built in for bidders? It’s true. It’s called BIN or Buy It Now, and it will keep your bids safe in the event that you lose the auction.

When an auction ends the last person to bid is the winner of the auction. If you aren’t the winner of the auction and you have placed at least one bid you are eligible to BIN the auction. When you BIN the item for the retail price you get ALL of the bids back that you placed, as well as getting free shipping. Isn’t that a lovely safety net that DealDash has built into each and every auction?

Bid on Toys and Gift Cards on DealDash


Do you have kids who love toys? DealDash has lots of toys that your kids would love.

Do you need to get a gift for your children, maybe for a birthday or as a “back to school” present? Shopping for kids can be a very fun experience, and seeing their happy little faces when they open up their present is a real joy. If you need a toy for your child, then win toys on DealDash!

DealDash Has Legos for Boys and Girls


What’s the perfect item for both girls and boys? What’s a gift that children in a family can easily share? Legos! There are Legos of every type and many different sets. There are even Lego sets for younger children. If the child you’re shopping for is too young for regular Legos try the Duplo blocks. DealDash has both regular Legos and Duplo blocks up for auction. All three of my children, aged 19 months, 5 years, and 9 years all play with Legos at my house. It’s one of the only activities that all three of them can play together. Legos? $48. Thirty minutes of silence because all of the children are playing nicely together? Priceless!

Gift Cards for Great Toys


If you are interested in getting a child a present but you aren’t sure exactly what they would like, then a gift card would make an excellent present. As kids get older I find it really hard to keep up with which video games that they have – and I wouldn’t want to commit the “grave insult” of getting them a game that they already have. So I find that a gift card works especially well for older kids, say age 10 and up. DealDash has many gift cards to stores that have toys. Some examples are Toys R Us, Target, and Wal-Mart. These stores have indoor toys, outdoor toys, and even video games.


Didn’t WIN? Let’s BIN!

Not everyone can win every auction, of course. Otherwise, DealDash would go out of business, and no one wants that! However, if you don’t win, DealDash always offers the option to BIN the item. Buying It Now (BIN) is a smart thing to do. After you’re done bidding in an auction, and realize that you won’t be the winner, then just hit the BIN button. After you have submitted your payment to DealDash, they will refund all of the bids that you spent on the auction. This is a great thing to plan on doing if you’re bidding on gift cards because the BIN price is simply the value of the card. No fees and no shipping costs!

Last Minute Toys for Christmas

 Image result for toys

The time to shop for Christmas is quickly drawing to a close. However, if you hurry you can win last-minute toys!

I know that there are a few last-minute shoppers out there. After taking a quick poll at my part-time job the other day it seems like I am the only one who has gotten all of their shopping and wrapping taken care of. Shopping for kids can be the most fun experience of the year, even if you are a little bit behind. There’s still time to win toys on DealDash, and if you pay today you will receive them in time for Christmas! There are some exceptions, of course, but most items can be delivered in time for Santa to leave them under the tree.

LEGO Elves Ragana's Magic Shadow Castle 41180LEGO DUPLO Number Train

What is the perfect last-minute gift for girls or boys? Legos! There are Legos of every color and so many different sets that encompass so many different interests of boys, girls, and both. Either gender can enjoy tie-ins to popular movies, video games, and TV shows such as Angry Birds, Ghostbusters, and Elves. If the child you’re shopping for is too young for regular Legos try the Duplo blocks. Around my house we call them “Baby Legos.” DealDash has both types – Lego and Duplo – up for auction.

Another great last-minute toy idea is ride-on cars! Toddlers on up through early elementary-aged kids love these. My niece has a ride-on car that looks like a little VW Bug, it’s adorable! The good thing about these ride-on toys is that they look awesome under the tree. They are a real “WOW!!” type of present. They don’t need as much space as you might think, either. My niece rides hers around the basement, as it’s too cold to drive it around outside now.

$50 GameStop Gift Card

If you’re searching for a toy for a child that’s a little bit older, video games are always fun. DealDash has video games for all of the game systems – Xbox One, PS4, and Wii U. If you’re not sure what system that the child has, then a gift card for GameStop is always appreciated as well. If you don’t have a Gamestop in your town, then DealDash has the solution – gift cards to Toys R Us, Wal*Mart, and Target.

I hope that you found this article about last-minute toy gifts helpful. If you have another type of toy in mind check out the Hobbies, Toys, Outdoors, and Games section on DealDash. DealDash has so many toys that would make a perfect gift for the child in your life. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

DealDash Bidding to Donate


 christmas-treeShopping and bidding on DealDash is perfect for Christmas toys, but once you have won toys for all of your friends and family members, why not win some toys to donate?

DealDash is here to help you figure out how you can be a great person by donating to the less fortunate, but being a savvy shopper as well. With DealDash you don’t have to choose being kind or saving up your money, DealDash can help you get some wonderful things to donate but help you stay frugal as well.

Christmas is a wonderful and fun time for everyone, especially children. Unfortunately there are many families out there that are having trouble paying their bills and don’t have any extra money set aside to get their children presents. By saving money and bidding and winning your own family’s gifts on DealDash you can use the extra savings and turn it into a few toys for the less fortunate children in your town.

If you’re wondering where you should donate your toys, there are many places that distribute toys to children during the holidays. If you’d like to select a child or a family yourself instead of just dropping toys off, you can pick a child or family off the “Angel Tree”. They always have these trees at the mall, and sometimes at other stores, and sometimes the angel trees are available at churches as well. If you would like to drop toys off, there are many Toys For Tots donation drop offs. You can look them up online, and if you drop the toys off, you don’t even have to wrap them! If you would like to donate to older children or teens who aren’t interested in toys, you can always buy clothing or toiletries and give them to your local DSS/DCFS/Social Services offices so that they can distribute them to the kids and teens that are in foster care.

DealDash has not only toys for children, but also some clothing and beauty items that would be great for young adults or teens. Remember, just because a 17-year-old isn’t a cute little kid anymore, they would still love something to unwrap on Christmas.

As with all auctions on DealDash, if you don’t happen to win these items when you bid on them, then you can always BIN (Buy It Now) for the retail price, get all of your bids back to use again, get free shipping, AND get to keep of the clock time that you earned as being the highest bidder.

I hope that you have found this article helpful for thinking of ways that you can donate and become a hero for a less fortunate child. Thank you for reading! Go check out DealDash at this link right here. Good Luck and Happy Bidding everyone!
