How I Funded A Birthday Dinner With DealDash

DealDash Gift Card Birthday Party

It is our family tradition to take each one of our three daughters out for dinner on or around their birthdays. The whole family goes which totals 7 people so the bill can get pretty pricey. One of our favorite places to eat is Texas Roadhouse. Since DealDash offers Texas Roadhouse gifts cards, I figured why not bid on some of those. I scanned through the up-coming auctions to find the ones I wanted to bid on.

The first auction was on March 30, which I successfully won for $0.22 using just 5 bids. The next auction was on April 8. I won that auction for $0.82 using just 9 bids. For $1.04 and 14 bids, I had won $100.00 worth of Texas Roadhouse gift cards from DealDash. I figured I would try once more since I knew our bill would total over the value of those first two cards. On April 12th I once again began bidding on a $50.00 TRH gift card. Well, I got in with several bidders who were determined to keep the auction going at all costs so I eventually, after using 100 bids, chose to use the BIN option (Buy it Now and get my bids back) and got all my spent bids returned to me. I then had enough gift cards to cover the birthday dinner. My total investment for $150.00 in Texas Roadhouse gift cards was $51.04 and 14 bids. Not a bad haul!
