I have been a bidder at DealDash since September 2012. I have won over three hundred auctions and just lately have been able to get my 6-win limit for several weeks in a row. While I may sound like an experienced bidder, I believe there is always something new to learn about bidding on DealDash.com.
I started bidding on DealDash and made lots of mistakes. I did NOT read all the articles and advice about bidding, I mean how hard can bidding be? You buy bids, you push the button, you wait til the last second, you bid again, you win! Right? Wrong? It certainly is not that easy! Having bid on several other penny auction sites, I learned various techniques on how to bid. Bid fast, bid first, keep bidding, stay, back out, come back again. All of these techniques can work on any given day. But the other sites have no limits on wins, they will allow people to come in to auctions at all price levels (DealDash has a $5 cut off point on most days), and other penny auctions do not have a buy it now option. The sites that do have a buy-it-now option do not return your bids to you. With the newest sites I have bid on, they have what is called a random reserve. Only so many bids will be placed anywhere from $.01 to $2.00 on a $15 gift card. If you do a bid buddy option you can put all your bids, say 75 bids, on rapid bid and within a second all of your bids can be gone, you did NOT hit the random reserve price, and no, you cannot buy it now. What did you win? Nothing, nada, zilch. So for your $50 bid purchase you got no return and only a second or two of fun trying to win a card??? Hmmm, does not sound like a very good investment.
I have done all types of bidding online, have waited months for my wins and paid a lot of money on shipping charges. With DealDash there is no shipping cost involved, and you never wait very long for delivery of your items. DealDash sends confirmation notices of all items that are sent and you can almost set your watch by the delivery dates they give you. When I won my latest item, the Panasonic 6000 phones, I had them in two days. Who ships in two days?? DealDash has excellent customer service too, just in case you have questions or concerns. They never leave you wondering if they got your email, you get responses within a few hours. Ya gotta love that.
DealDash is the best penny auction site to use if you want free shipping, the buy-it-now option that lets you get your bids back, and excellent customer service. I really enjoy the site!
