My daughter’s 3rd birthday is coming up in September, and since I am extremely frugal I like to plan (and shop!) ahead on DealDash so I can get the best bargains.
After thinking for a while on what might be the best gift for her, I decided to get her a LeapPad2 Explorer tablet. I saw them come up occasionally on DealDash.com, and after price-checking around various stores such as Target they seemed to range in price from $69-$89, depending on if you got just the tablet or if you got the accessory kit to go with it.
Imagine my surprise when I saw that the BIN price on the Disney Princess-themed LeapPad2 Explorer was only $66 AND included not just the basic (but cute!) Princess decorated tablet, but also a carrying case, 7 Princess wallpapers, 2 sticker sheets, and 5 apps! I actually didn’t even think that I was really going to WIN, but I figured even BINning this tablet would be a bargain since it came with the extras.
But I did win!
I used 263 bids X .15 for a total of $39.45, and there was NO final auction fee, because it was a “Free Auction Weekend,” and of course DealDash always provides free shipping.
Since I was so successful in winning the LeapPad2 I figured that I would try and win some of the cartridges to go with it. I was able to win 2 of them at a great price and I ended up BINning the 3rd (and getting all of my bids back). Here is a short video showing how many bids I put in and how great my savings were.
Hint: About 50%!
Thank you DealDash, she is going to have the best birthday yet!
