Incentive to outbid other DealDash bidders

As a satisfied DealDash customer I just want to share a few thoughts about participating on this auction site.

For starters, I’d like to make reference to other bidders and the things I see bidders write in their bidder bio.

DealDash promotes education through it’s Auctions

My youngest daughter is currently a Sophomore in college. Because she loves to read, I thought it would be nice for her to have a Kindle. DealDash just happened to be having a mega book reader auction blast. What luck! There were 40 auctions, all starting at the same time for various book readers. I knew my daughter really wanted a book reader so I put a bid on all 40 of the auctions, then decided which three or four I would invest in. As the auctions went along I noticed that I was bidding with several of the same  — Read full post
