dealdash

If saving money the same old way hasn’t been working for you, then try something new. Here are some unique ways to save money, from DealDash.

Saving money can be difficult. It takes a lot of discipline and cutting back on the things that you like to buy. If you are used to spending a lot of money, the beginning of the year is the perfect time to change your spending habits by saving money. Saving money is imperative because you never know if you may need emergency cash. Here are some unique ways to save money this New Year’s, from DealDash.

Wait Before You Buy Something

Waiting before you buy something will stop you from overspending and will help you save more money this year. It is best to wait till 30 days to see if you still want to purchase that item. Giving yourself 30 days to think about whether or not it is a necessary purchase will help you make a smarter decision. You may discover that you will not want it anymore.

Do Free Activities

Most people spend a lot of money on entertainment. If you like going out with your friends and family, you can save money by doing free activities. Instead of going to the mall or spending money eating out, you can go fishing, hiking, or have a fun game night with your family. Create a list of fun things you can do for very little money.

Find a Good Influence

One of the best ways to save money is to learn how to save money through other people. You can hang out with friends that know how to save and handle their money well. Books about finances, and watching webinars about saving money can help also. There are plenty of blogs that will give you personal finance tips on saving money.

DealDash Helps Save Money in the New Year

DealDash

January is a great time to make a plan and a budget for the upcoming year. Here are some tips from DealDash to help you save more money in the new year.

It is finally a new year, and you are probably ready to save more money. It takes a lot of self-control and discipline to save money especially if you like to shop. Saving more money and spending less money is easier to say rather than to do. Here are a few easy ways to save money in the new year, from DealDash.

Create a Change Jar

The best way to save money is to create a jar for your change. Change quickly adds up over time. When you go shopping and the cashier hands you your money back, you can save the change that you receive and put it in a jar. Once you get to the end of each month, you can count up your money and see how much you saved. Creating a change jar is a smart way to save money.

Eat Out Less

Eating out can take a lot of your money. You should try to cook more homecooked meals and brown bag your lunch. It’s easy! Simply go to the store and buy a frozen meal or make a sandwich for lunch. You will save a lot of money by packing your own lunch and cooking your own meals instead of ordering takeout.

Use Apps to Help You Save Money

Using smartphone apps can help you save a lot of money each month. There are apps to save money, apps to make money doing surveys or watching videos, and many more. If you are just sitting around playing with your phone, why not use some of these easy apps and make a little spare cash while you’re at it? When you use money-saving apps, it is easier to take control of your finances.

DealDash Bid Exchange

Winning to Exchange for DealDash Bids

Some of my wins on DealDash.com consisted of a low dollar item that I would be able to trade in at payment for bids instead of the actual product.

When browsing the penny auctions on DealDash I came across a few things which were not useful for me however decided to bid on them anyway. I didn’t actually know about the item to bid exchange option at the time or never really noticed it because I was always winning items that I wanted so it did not pertain to me. When you win an auction you actually have two options: a) purchase your item and option b) exchange to bids!

DealDash Item to Bid Exchange

I came across it by accident when I won an auction for a pack of markers. I was paying $1.25 for some Crayola markers I thought my niece may like. There was the usual option to pay for the item and have it shipped or exchange it for a number of bids. I thought about it and decided to give it a try and went ahead and exchanged it for bids this time.

Since then, I’ve found myself watching small dollar items a bit more just to win them and exchange them for more bids than I used to win the auctions. It’s one of the processes I use when bidding and it’s gained me a few product exchanges for bids. I think this fits my “conservative” bidding style and would venture to bet that others do this as well. Whenever you do decide to press that exchange for bids button DealDash prompts you to confirm this is something you actually want to do.

What kinds of DealDash strategies do you use? Do you use the exchange to bids option?

 

A little about myself: I’ve been bidding on DealDash for about two years and really like it. I like to frequent DealDash because it is fun and entertaining. I’ve gone to other sites but find myself coming back to DealDash because of it’s ability to exchange for bids when you win an auction and the ability to buy it now and get your bids back if you lose an auction.

DealDash ABC's Basics of How DealDash.com works

Michael Jackson and Bidding on DealDash

I was thinking about the ABC’s of bidding and the 1,2,3’s of what not to do when bidding to see if I could educate the new bidder a little better. For some reason Michael Jackson’s song came to mind.

The “A” stands for Auctions, the “B” stands for Bids, and the “C” stands for Cost. DealDash has so many auctions to select from that a new bidder should have no problem deciding which one to get started with. The Bids come in packages from 200 to over 1,000. Buying bids on sale is really the only way to go. With bids being offered for 15 cents from time to time a smart bidder will only buy bids on sale. This way, if you spend 100 bids or $15 to win a $25 item you are really a “winner”. And, the Cost of an item is the amount of bids you put on an auction, plus if you win, the final price you will pay for the auction. Remember, there are NO shipping charges on DealDash, unlike other penny auction sites.

# 1: DON’T be in a hurry on DealDash.com!

If you do not have the patience or time to watch an auction and bid, then you are simply throwing your money away.

# 2: You must NOT slap bids at auctions or other Deal Dash bidders.

The timer is there to help all bidders earn free bids. Let the timer work for your benefit as well as other bidders. Free bids are a great reward for bidding on DealDash, let everyone get in on some free bids.

# 3: DON”T spend more than the item is worth to get the “win” on DealDash.

Paying $14 for a $10 gift card is crazy. I actually won a $10 gift card for $14, having put on the bid buddy and leaving the site. After all the slappers and over-bidders got done, I won the card for a few bids! I am grateful that DealDash lets you turn your win in for bids, which is what I chose to do.

I have watched a new bidder this week who has become an incessant slapper. This bidder will eventually think about their penny auction experience on DealDash and blame everyone else for their lack of good and genuine “wins”. In reality, if this bidder had done his homework, he would realize jumping on every bidder costs him 5 times what it cost everyone else and even if he did win, he would be losing a lot of money.

I could name other countless tips to use while bidding on auctions, the best advice is use the BidBuddy. You set how many bids you are willing to pay to win the item and watch the auction. The BidBuddy prevents you from over-spending your bidding budget and also keeps you in the game. Watch auctions, learn what techniques others use, and you will be a “winner” on DealDash. Last of all, DealDash offers you the buy-it-now option. You get the item you were trying to win, you get ALL of your bids back and you get to try your skill at another auction. DealDash is a great site to bid on, learn and enjoy the fun of being a competitive bidder! Happy Bidding!

DealDash Bidding Tips

DealDash Responsible Bidding Tips

DealDash Bidding Tips

I like to think that I have some common sense when it comes to bidding on a penny auction site and DealDash.

I like to watch an auction before I start bidding. I will actually go through all the pages to see what is coming up and tend to pick the auctions that are going to start in the middle of the night my time because from experience, they tend to have less bidders which gives me a better chance of winning the auction.

I’ll start my process by placing one bid and watch the activity to see how many “active” bidders are going to join me. This way, when the bidding activity gets to the point of “No New Bidders”, I will have my bid in to continue bidding as the price goes up with everyone else’s bids. I like to watch for automatic bids because if there are 3-4 auto bids being made consistently, I will definitely not be using my bids and will wait for the auto bids to die down to 2 people because the others have used up their automatic funds/preset amounts. This allows the price to stay low and me not to use up too many bids needlessly because they are going to use theirs instead.

When I am picking an item, I will use the automatic bids myself sometimes but I do the math first. I will look at the “retail” price on Ebay and factor in how much I paid for my bids and only go as high as the Ebay price because I know I can buy it there for the same price. This is probably stupid but it’s won me a few auctions and seems to work for me.

I’ve been bidding on DealDash for about two years and really like it. I’ve tried other penny auction sites but find myself coming back to DealDash because of the ability to buy it now if you lose an auction and get your bids back.
