Tweet DealDash and Get Free Bids


Did you know that you can get FREE bids from posting your wins on Twitter? Here’s how you can get in on the fun!

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past ten years or so, I’m sure that you have heard of Twitter. However, you might not know anything about Twitter’s history. Twitter is an online social networking service that lets users share short 140-character messages called “tweets”.  Users can send and read tweets from just about anyone, from their next door neighbor all the way up to President Obama. Users may subscribe to other users’ tweets—this is known as “following” and subscribers are known as “followers”. DealDash has a whopping 10.4 thousand followers! If you love looking at the “Winners” tab on DealDash, looking at the tweets that people post on DealDash’s Twitter page is even more fun.

You can get totally free bids really easily and quickly using Twitter. The way you can do that is by simply following DealDash and posting photos on Twitter. If you are going to take photos of your wins to post on Facebook and Pinterest to get free bids, why not also post them on Twitter?

First things first, you need to follow DealDash on Twitter at this link here. Then go to DealDash, win an auction, and wait to receive it. After that you can get free bids by simply taking a photo of yourself holding the auction win and posting the picture on Twitter with a quick message such as “I got this – ____________ item – @DealDash for – ___________ bids- & $ – ___________ final auction price-. I love it! #DealDash also gives #FREE shipping!” Just “fill in the blanks” with the appropriate answers, and you are all set!

When you take advantage of the generous free bid offers that DealDash gives everyone every single week you can build your bid bank and win even more auctions. Then, of course, use your bid bank to get more wins, and then repeat the process. There is no limit to how many weeks in a row that you can post on Twitter and get totally free bids. As long as you have a new auction win every week then you can get more free bids every week.





I hope this helped some of you that didn’t know how to use Twitter to get free bids! If you’re interested in reading even more tips and tricks check out the “Tactics & Tips” section on DealDash. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

Cameras For Summer Adventures


Summer is coming, is it time for a new camera? Let’s see what DealDash has on offer.

DealDash has so many different types of cameras up for auction at any given time, from inexpensive kid’s cameras all the way up to high grade digital cameras good enough to fancy yourself a professional photographer when you use them. DealDash also has cameras meant for active lifestyles, and cameras meant to be enjoyed by the whole family. Here are a few of my favorites that DealDash often has up for bid:

Best for Kids: Fuji Instax 8 – I actually have one of these for myself! The Instax is one of my favorite things to take to parties, over to the relatives house, or to keep handy when we go out in the summer. It’s just like an old school Polaroid in that it spits out instant pictures, except it’s got a fun new body design, multiple levels of flash for different types of light, and comes in fun colors.

Fuji Instax Mini 8 Camera - Black

Best for Families: Coleman 2V9WP Duo2 Dual Screen – I picked this one as best for families because it’s a very affordable price, it comes in fun colors, it’s waterproof, it has dual screens, and 20 MP resolution. This is a cute but rugged camera you don’t have to be afraid to hand it over to your 6 year old to take a picture.

Best for Active Lifestyles: GoPro Hero – GoPro Hero has become the gold standard in practically indestructible sports cameras. The GoPro Hero camera mounts easily to your body, gear or vehicle, making it easy to record video with up to 1080p resolution during your favorite activities. Dropped from a high distance? No problem! Want to film surfing selfies? No problem! GoPro!


GoPro Hero3+ Silver Edition Camera

Best for Serious Hobbyists: Nikon D3200 – This Nikon is actually my dream camera! I have never had the nerve to bid on one on DealDash because I haven’t worked up the nerve to be willing to “Go all the way”.  Maybe someday. This is an awesome camera that also shoots videos in 1080p. Perfect for making YouTube videos. You can actually even edit your pictures right within the cameras interface and share them wirelessly. And as an extra awesome bonus, it also comes in red!!!

DealDash is Trustworthy, and Here’s Proof

  Did you know that DealDash is a Better Business Bureau accredited business?

Not only that, even more impressively DealDash is actually rated an A+ on the Better Business Bureau. There are a few different ways that the Better Business Bureau uses to rate businesses. Some of these ways include:


  • Length of time business has been operating
  • Complaint volume filed with BBB for business of this size
  • Response to any complaint(s) filed against business
  • Resolution of complaint(s) filed against business


According to the Better Business Bureau website, they have a total of 156 reviews on BBB, and 145 of them are positive, and 5 of them are neutral. Those are some really great percentages of happy customers.

It’s just about impossible to be a large company without having any complaints at all, and DealDash has had just 22 complaints in the last year. That’s an amazingly low number of complaints if you take into consideration that DealDash does literally hundreds of transactions per day, and thousands upon thousands of members.

If the Better Business Bureau A+ rating doesn’t impress you – how about a 4.5 out of 5 star rating on SiteJabber? What is SiteJabber you might ask? SiteJabber is a web site for customers to find trustworthy online businesses and avoid scams. SiteJabber was founded in 2008 in San Francisco, California and has been described as “the Yelp for websites and online businesses”. Customers create SiteJabber accounts to rate and review online businesses using an overall star-rating as well as criteria such as service, value, shipping, returns and quality. SiteJabber receives over 1 million monthly visitors and have reviews of over 45,000 online businesses, so you know they’re legit.

If you go to SiteJabber and look up DealDash, they have 2,972 reviews and over 2,400 of the reviews are either 4 or 5 star ratings. Again, it’s so amazing considering how many people use DealDash every day.

I hope that this reassures those of you who might have been a little bit skeptical about exactly how legit DealDash really is. If you’re interested in reading even more tips and tricks check out the “Tactics & Tips” section on DealDash. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!
