DealDash bidding on Home Computer Or Mobile Device

DealDash Bidding on Mobile or Home Computer

Do you prefer bidding on auctions using your home computer or a mobile device when shopping on DealDash?

Perhaps it might be more difficult for a senior citizen like me to make the leap from using my home computer to bidding with a mobile device, but I wanted to at least give it a try to keep up with my granddaughter’s generation. Therefore, I stared bidding on DealDash auctions using a mobile device I won!

I was lucky enough to win my first mobile device, a $499 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, 16GB white, for only $18.46 and 290 bids on DealDash. At 15 cents a bid (which is what I usually pay) my Samsung Galaxy note cost me a total of $61.96 which is a savings of $437.04 from the retail price.

Before that I always used my home computer to shop on DealDash.com … and I still do. Why? I am retired and I am now writing my first novel, so I am usually working on my home computer, anyway. Most of all, I prefer using a big monitor screen and an actual keyboard.

The only problem is that my computer is downstairs and my TV is upstairs, so I thought I might be able to win more auctions if I used my notebook to monitor the bidding process whenever I am upstairs. After having my new mobile device for a year, I finally asked my son Shawn to show me how to use it. First, he performed his magic to make it recognize my home Wi-Fi. Then he went with me to a local coffee shop to show me how to connect to Wi-Fi when I’m away from home.

Whenever connected to DealDash my mobile device appears to work just as well as my home computer, but I forget how to make the keyboard pop up, causing unnecessary delays. After I get used to it, I might eventually learn to like using my mobile device. In the meantime, I still find it a lot easier to run downstairs and place all my bids from my home computer.

Start Your Day with DealDash

Early this morning as I got ready for work, I thought about the products I was using and where I had purchased them. I washed my hair with Bath and Body Works shampoo and used their conditioner too. Hmmm, the body wash I was using was from Bath and Body Works as well! The really nice triple thick body lotion, guess what? Bath and body Works too.

As I brushed my teeth with Crest, hmm, this was from Amazon, and oh yes, so was the hair gel, hair spray, and even the Kleenex. I purchased all of these items with gift cards I have won or bought on DealDash. Oh, and don’t forget the pain reliever for the head or body aches that may come. This comes from Amazon too.

As I dressed in my Land’s End slacks and shirt, I realized they had come from Deal Dash gift cards. The Kmart cards offered at DealDash.com are good not only at Kmart, but Sears, Land’s End, and Banana Republic. The finishing touch, the shoes, oh, they came from Amazon. The great thing about shopping online is that the sizes are right and the colors you want are there. No longer do I trek through department stores looking for sizes, colors, right fit, etc.

For those who are concerned about sales taxes in your state, many of the sites I buy from charge state sales tax. I feel the convenience and selection of shopping with my buys/wins really makes shopping on DealDash a grand shopping experience!

Happy Bidding!

Outdoor Fireplace Won on DealDash.com

Double DealDash Win    

Earlier this year I was shopping on DealDash, when I came across two different outdoor fire bowls for our deck.

I decided to place bids on both of them hoping to win at least one of them. I booked 200 bids in my BidBuddy on one valued at $298.00 and 100 bids on the other one valued at $147.00. I continued to look at all the other items being auctioned off when I happened to win!

I was so excited I had won the copper roof outdoor fireplace for $4.18 and 98 bids! I couldn’t believe it! So I placed my order and paid for it and remembered I had booked 200 bids on the other one. So I clicked on it and was going to cancel my bids when all of a sudden it popped up Congratulations you won!

I won the Uniflame slate tiled outdoor fire bowl for $8.27 and 98 bids! So now we have two! I plan on using one to roast marshmallows with our grandsons this summer! The other one I haven’t decided yet what I will do with it, maybe give it away for a gift or keep it for next year! Either way they both will come in handy this summer!

Computer Bike DealDash Win

Win Laptops, Bikes and more on DealDash

My 1st big win on DealDash was an HP Pavilion laptop computer. It has everything you could want on a computer. Windows 8, touch screen and it’s wireless.

The best thing about this computer is I won it on a DealDash.com during a free auction weekend where DealDash paid the final winning sales price. After I won this computer I then had to work hard to convince my kid that I was not going to give them the computer but keep it for myself to enjoy it while bidding on Deal Dash in the future. With the win of this computer my sister and best friend also decided to give DealDash a try. They have some great experiences and won some nice items too!

I must say I was so happy to win this computer. This DealDash win is the computer I wrote this blog entry on. I also recently won two bicycles and did a Buy it Now on one bicycle. The two are identical, I bid on them for my granddaughter and myself to spend quality time when she has sleep overs at grandma’s.

The other bicycle was a 15 speed bicycle. I wasn’t paying attention while bidding and did not read that it was a 15 speed bicycle. A speed bicycle wasn’t what I wanted, so I donated it to a charity that collect bicycles for less fortunate children. I surely hope it made a child very happy.
My winning bids for the bicycles were priced at $3.87 and $8.53! You can’t hardly beat that! My granddaughter says “I have the best Grandma in the whole world.” That meant the world to me. I also like to win movie gift cards on DealDash because they make for great rainy day time for grandma with the grandkids. When it’s rainy we don’t ride the bikes but I do wish DealDash had more bicycle accessories to bid on like front and rear baskets, handle bar rear view mirrors, bicycle locks, etc.
How about you? What was your first win like?

Play To Bid Bid To Play – DealDash

One of the most important and valuable tips of advice I can give you when bidding in the auctions on DealDash is to concentrate!

When you decide to bid make sure you focus on what you doing otherwise you may end up hating what happens. Here’s what I mean. You open up DealDash.com and start scanning the auctions to see what’s up for auction. You move a few to your favorite auctions to your bookmark page because it will be a few minutes until they start so you go check your email or Facebook page. You then get caught up with email and go back awhile later and low and behold someone wins the auction for a few pennies! Darn it!
This just happened to me yesterday! What did I learn from this? If you’re going to bid then do it. That’s even what the bookmark page is for after all. To put your favorite auctions on that page so you can check on the auction faster. Also, don’t forget to actually put some bids on what you want also! Yikes, that’s a mistake! Have you made that one before?
Another thing that happens is putting in too few bids in on something. I tried to win a pressure washer half a dozen times but I only put in a few bids and was going to come back later to find it had been sold. If I had only put more bids in chances are I would have won it. I finally put enough bids in on a All America Electric Pressure Washer and finally won. The total cost with ending price and bids was $12.83.  It was valued at $117.00.  Now that’s I call a good deal dash deal.
Use your bookmark page for what it was designed for.  You might just win more auctions.  I will try to not make the same mistake and I hope this article possibly helps someone else to do the same.  Happy Bidding!
