DealDash Holiday Travel Tips


We’ve talked about preparing your house for holiday guests. Now we will discuss some holiday travel tips when you are the guest. Read on for some helpful hints from DealDash.

The holidays are the busiest travel time of the year. Many people have long breaks from work and school.  Christmas is around the corner, and you may be trying to plan for your holiday travels. There is a lot of chaos and confusion when it comes to being in the holiday travel rush. Thankfully, there are some ways that you can prepare for holiday travel. DealDash is here to help!

Plan Ahead and do Your Research

You should not waste time when it comes to traveling. It is important to plan ahead and do your research. Shop around and compare different costs for flights. Make sure you sign up for airlines newsletters for travel deals that you can receive. Be flexible with your schedule. If you can travel early you should. Planning ahead will make traveling less stressful.

Packing With Help from DealDash

Packing can take a lot of your time, but you can make it simple. It is best to travel with a carry-on bag. This is not the right time of year to try to get through the security with an oversized luggage. The passengers are already in a hurry to get to their destination and holding up the line will put them in a bad mood. It is important to also make your luggage lighter by wearing the heavy clothing instead of packing coats, and sweaters.

If you need a nice new carry-on bag you can easily get one from DealDash. DealDash has some of the nicest and highest-quality luggage around. You can simply click this link right here and check out the luggage that DealDash offers up for auction. In addition to the luggage, DealDash also offers gift cards to stores that carry luggage and bags. You can win or BIN (Buy It Now) a gift card to Kohl’s, Target, or Wal-Mart and choose from their selection of luggage as well. Just click here to see all of the amazing gift card options. 

Traveling with Presents

If you can avoid packing the gifts it is a good idea to ship them. Gifts can take up space and make security checks become longer. It is important to ship them a few weeks ahead, so they will be there by the time you arrive. If you have to pack the Christmas presents, make sure you pack them well with bubble wrap to prevent damage. It is also important to save the wrapping for when you arrive. Otherwise, your gift wrapping job will likely be damaged while in transit.

DealDash Kitchen: The Benefits of Silicone Utensils


Silicone utensils are great to have on hand in your kitchen. If you’re not familiar with the benefits of Silicone utensils be sure to read this article from DealDash.

When it comes to cooking there will always be a debate as far as what utensils are best to use when you are cooking. Everyone seems to have an opinion as far as what works the best. Here are some benefits to using silicone utensils, from DealDash.

Huge Variety

You will see that there is a huge variety of silicone utensils to choose from as compared to other types of utensils. You will also find that these utensils are quite pleasing to the eye and they can add a nice splash of color to your kitchen. The great news is that they are just as functional as they are beautiful. No matter what the color scheme of your kitchen, you will be able to find silicone utensils to compliment it. Personally, I have teal silicone utensils, but you can choose from just about any color that you can imagine.

Keep It Simple

Silicone utensils as very easy to maintain. You will be able to clean them either by hand or just toss them in a dishwasher. They keep their color well and do not stain easily or pick up a lot of residue. Another very beneficial thing to keep in mind about this type of utensils is that they are hypoallergenic. The reason behind this is that they have no open pores to harbor harmful bacteria.

Affordable and Sturdy

Silicone utensils are very affordable. They also have a great non-stick capability so you do not have to worry about using too much oil while you are cooking due to this handy feature. Additionally, you do not have to worry about silicone utensils rusting from overuse or not being taken care of properly. These utensils are well worth the money spent to get them.

Get Gift Cards from DealDash to Buy Silicone Utensils

If you’re shopping for silicone utensils, you can purchase them just about anywhere. Of course, you’ll want to save money on your new purchase, so you should get a gift card from DealDash. DealDash has gift cards to many stores such as Kohl’s, Target, and Wal-Mart. All of these stores carry silicone utensils. You can use your gift card from DealDash to buy as many silicone utensils as you need for your kitchen. Remember, if you don’t win a gift card in the auction you can always Buy It Now (BIN) and receive all of your bids back when you purchase the gift card for its face value. You will also get free shipping. Win-Win!

DealDash Buy it Now review

Reviewing why to Buy it Now on DealDash

Reviewing DealDash's buy it now feature

One of the absolute best reasons for bidding on DealDash.com is their Buy it Now option. While other penny auction sites offer a buy it now feature, none of them offer to return ALL, yes I said ALL, of your bids back for free!!!

I can buy it now for the full retail price (say $25 for a $25 gift card) and have all of my bids returned to bid again if I would like.

When the buy it now option first came on to the scene, I was skeptical and wondered why would someone pay full price? You really are trying to win the auction. Your intent is to win. Well, most of the auctions I am on are competitive auctions and the other bidders are all trying to win too. So, I spoke with a few other bidders, and their reaction was pretty simple and clear cut. “Why not?”

After all, if there are 30 bidders all going for the same item, and you have reached your own personal limit, the buy it now option lets you get the item you wanted, and for free, all of your bids come back to you to try again. Oh, and shipping is always free on DealDash. You really don’t lose. My daughter says I skip to the mailbox! Not sure about that, but I am awfully happy to collect my winnings and plan my next adventure on DealDash!

I’m a grandma of two boys, who are my pride and joy, and a retired HR Specialist currently working as a volunteer manager at a non-profit. I have been playing penny auctions since 2011 as it lets me enjoy being competitive and win. You don’t get those opportunities at work or being a spectator of sporting events.

Review of the “Buy It Now” on DealDash

DealDash Buy it Now Review

The “Buy It Now” is a great feature of DealDash. I really wanted  a pressure washer. Well I wasn’t lucky enough to win it so instead I used the Buy It Now feature on DealDash.com and got the pressure washer I wanted and all my Bids back for free.

I have also used the Buy it now on some other auctions items like a bicycle, lawn fountain, gift cards and more. I then use the Bids I get back to win auctions like an 800 Bid pack I won! Even thought I may not always win with the bids I get back from the Buy it Now purchase, I still have fun trying to win and I’m happy with my purchase.

I think that even when you lose an auction on DealDash, you can still win with the Buy it Now.

I now have a very clean and renewed deck, a happy grand child and other items thanks to DealDash. One of my most favorite things about DealDash is the free shipping. It is wonderful that you don’t have to pay for the shipping of your auction wins like you do on other online shopping sites. DealDash also gives you the tracking information of your win so you’ll know exactly when you can expect your package to arrive.

Another wonderful feature is the ability to earn free bids with the time as highest bidder meter.

I love when DealDash offers 2X and 3X faster timers going so you can earn way more free bids than usual. You can’t beat the Free auction days and 50% off auctions either. This is where Deal Dash pays the final selling price when you win an auction or you only have to pay 50% of the normal selling price.

Be sure to review DealDash bidding tutorials and the blogs for tips other useful features.

DealDash.com offers an outstanding customer service staff and are always good about helping. They are well-trained to help you in every way they can within their guide lines. I have never had a problem and recommend asking for assistance if needed.

DealDash Win Limits

DealDash’s Weekly Winning Limits

I have started to earn my six wins per week on DealDash pretty often which causes me some angst.

While I am not complaining about the six wins (they have been coming at a relatively low cost :)), I seem to go through this bidding withdrawal! I am wondering if I should try for the higher priced items or should I go to the other sites I occasionally bid on. So, I decide to try for the higher priced items and quite often get KO’ed.

I ponder the idea of bidding on other sites and return to one of my pre DealDash favorite penny auctions. I decided to go for it and purchased bids at 75 cents each and proceeded to lose them and won nothing in a really short period of time. Not to be deterred, I bought another bid pack that cost $35 and proceeded to lose those 50 bids as well on this other site. No auction win, no buy it now and I have lost $70 cash in all. I am like a dog with a bone though and am determined to win something, so I buy more bids for $15 and proceed to win four $15 gift cards for a total of $60. Do the math, I lost $25 in this process of bidding on this other site.

While there are no shipping fees for the cards that I won, the fact I cannot buy it now to get my bids back on the auctions I did not win, is really frustrating. If you don’t win on many of the other penny auction sites, you really lose. I mean really lose. I much prefer DealDash.com and will try to win my six auctions a little slower to avoid going to other sites, and who knows I may get a lot better at winning the higher priced items too! Great part is knowing that if I don’t win, I can buy the item I wanted anyway and get all my bids back.

DealDash Winning Limits

To ensure equal chances for everyone to win you can win up to 6 items valued less than $200, and 3 items valued more than $200 per week. You can follow the status of your wins by logging in and looking at the winning limit slots right next to the bid amount. The system will not allow you to bid after you have reached your limit. All remaining BidBuddies will be automatically cancelled. Please plan your bidding strategy with this in mind.
