DealDash vs Quibids and other Penny Auction Sites

DealDash Vs Penny AuctionsI started bidding on www.DealDash.com in September 2012. I had never bid on an auction site before, but I really wanted to try it out. I saw an ad for the site come up on my Facebook page so I clicked the link and began to read all about DealDash. I finally took the plunge and began bidding. Well after I won my first auction and was hooked. I then decided I wanted to see what other auction sites were all about, so I clicked on a couple others. I went to Quibids and Zbiddy. Both were hard to understand  — Read full post

Big or Small… DealDash has Deals!

Hello fellow bidders. Some people feel that they are wasting their time bidding on the “small stuff.” Well, it is extremely difficult to win the big stuff…believe me, it is pure luck. Okay, so it’s luck on all of it, but the big stuff is a lot more luck. I see a lot of the same bidders on every large ticket item, including bid packs, on the page.

With the holidays fast approaching and the site already crawling with hundreds if not thousands of bargain seekers, I am thinking that this is only going to ramp up as the holidays get closer. So, with that knowledge in mind, I have already secured all of my gifts PRIOR to the holiday rush. If I were a newbie to DD, I would certainly start shopping now BEFORE the onslaught of desperate holiday shoppers begin to inundate any and all auctions, especially electronics which are already harder to win than they were even just 3 or 4 months ago.

DealDash Tip: Use a Nice Bidder Bio

I wanted to write here to address some of the comments I see from people who write in their bidder bio. I’ve seen some people write…“let me win and you get your bids back.”  Well, letting someone else have the win does nothing to help you get your bids back. Please be sure not to buy into these types of comments people post on their bio. The only way you will get your bids back is to “buy it now” in case you lose the auction. You pay full price for the item listed, and your bids are put  — Read full post
