A State Of Madness

Psssst! Hey you, yes you! Do you like jokes? You don’t? Well too bad. You are going to hear a few, like it or not!

What’s the best part about winter in California?That you only can see it on TV!

That didn’t do it for you? No problem, I’ve come prepared with another:

Where does America buy its pencils?Pennsylvania!

Are you catching on to the theme of those jokes yet? No, the theme is not ”bad jokes” ! The theme is the different states of the United States of America! We love saving money here at DealDash, so perhaps an even better theme would be a United States Sale!

There are a lot of different sides to the wonderful United States of America!

If you have been paying attention to our auctions you probably noticed our special Sate Bid Packs. These state-themed Bid Packs are found under the Bid Pack category on DealDash, and they are very popular! So much so, that we are devoting an entire weekend to them during our State Weekend Promotion!

Bid, save, and even learn!

Saturday, March 27th and Sunday, March 28th is when our State Weekend Promotion takes place! You will have the chance to bid on all of the State Bid Packs that have been released this year, and there are even some special challenges you can complete to earn bonus bids and prizes! This sale is for all of our bidders, a true United States Sale! Don’t know what all the fuss is about? The special State Bid Packs are just like normal Bid Packs in that they are chock-full of what matters most; bids! State Bid Packs are as small as 70 bids and as large as thousands and thousands of bids! You might be wondering how the size of these Bid Packs is determined. Well, this is a part of what makes our State Bid Packs special.

The State Bid Packs are specially designed to match one of the great 50 states!

Each State Bid Pack carries of the abbreviation and outline of the state it pays tribute to. For example, the Bid Pack pictured above honoring The Natural Sate shows an outline of Arkansas and a large AR. The other special thing about the State Bid Packs is the amount of bids in them. Each Bid Pack includes a unique fact about its state. For this Arkansas Bid Pack, the special fact is, Did you know that the mockingbird is the official state bird and it was approved in 1929? Now do you understand why the Bid Pack comes with 1,929 bids? With our United States Sale on Bid Packs, you can win bids and learn a little something in the process!

Twice as many reasons to bid

Special Bid Packs aren’t the only reason to get excited during our Sate Weekend Sale! We will also have a special 2X Time As Highest Bidder multiplier! We’ve been saying for years that smart bidders use the free Time As Highest Bidder rewards to their advantage, and now with the 2X multiplier, you have more reasons than ever to bid!

If that is not enough to get you interested, we also are bringing back on of our most popular (and rewarding!) promotions for the State Weekend Sale. That’s right, I am talking about Auction Leaderboards!

When the Auction leaderboard promotion is active, the three bidders who have collected the most Time As Highest Bidder in an auction will earn additional bid rewards. The amount of bids the Top-3 are returned depends on the Buy It Now price of the item auctioned. The bidder with most Time as Highest Bidder in the auction gets the largest reward. The second and third place then share a smaller part of that.

We hope to see bidders from all parts of the country winning auctions during our State Weekend Sale. To everyone from the Sunshine State to the Pacific North West, and everywhere in between, happy bidding!

If you are new to DealDash or the bidding fee online auction model and want to give it a try, use the promo code “dealdash2021” upon registration to get an extra 100 free bids with your first Bid Pack purchase.

Leverage a Win with DealDash Promotions


DealDash promotions make auctions more fun. Read on to see how DealDash promotions can help you.

Are you taking advantage of all of the different promotions that DealDash offers? Taking advantage of the promotions on DealDash is an excellent tactic for saving money. If you’re interested in reading about the different promotions that DealDash often has, read on.

Bid Pricing Promotions

Cheap bids are a very popular promotion that DealDash offers. You can typically get bids at a huge discount by buying while they’re on a good sale. The price of bids changes daily on DealDash, and they range in price from .60 each, all the way down to 12¢. Pricing between 13¢ and 15¢ is the most common, though I have seen both less and more.

Typically, DealDash has excellent prices on bids with holiday promotions. Honestly, I think that I have seen 12¢ bids on just about every bank holiday. Buying bids at 12¢ each is equal to getting 5 bids for the price of 1, if you compare it to the initial price of 60¢. This means that you have a huge advantage over people who have paid much more than 12¢ for their bids.

Also, keep in mind that not everyone will purchase bids during each promotion, so you shouldn’t assume that the other bidders are able to bid as freely as you are with your 12¢ bids. Remember, you don’t want to be caught with no bids in your bid bank when you see an amazing auction. Buy your bids in bulk when they are on a great sale and save them for when you need them.

Other Promotions Offered

There are other DealDash promotions besides discounted bids, another bidder favorite is when auction winners are either given free wins, or given 50% off the final auction value. When DealDash gives free win, there is usually a lot of competition. It’s a great deal, and it makes it a lot easier to calculate how many bids that you can place on an auction without going over the retail price.

Another promotion that is very popular is the “$3 No Jumper” promotion. This means that no one new can bid in an auction after the final value of the auction exceeds $3. This means that there are usually fewer people to compete with in an auction, as opposed to the $5 No Jumper.

Set a Budget

All of the promotions in the world won’t make a difference if you don’t set up a bidding budget for yourself. A bidding budget might sound complicated and confusing, but it can literally just be you saying to yourself “My bidding budget for this month is $100.” Of course, you could also make a much more complicated bidding budget by taking into account the free bids that you receive by bidding, if you do a BIN (Buy It Now) and get your bids back, or many other factors.

However, I like to keep things simple. I just set up a predetermined amount of money that I want to spend on bids each month, and then wait for a good sale on bids (12-14¢), and then spend the entire budget at once. This way I know that I don’t have any more money in my budget that month to buy bids, and I know that I am getting a good deal as opposed to just spending the bidding budget $25 here and $50 there on bids that might be more expensive.
