Happy 10th Anniversary, DealDash!

Did you know that DealDash will celebrate their 10th anniversary this week?! This week’s articles will be dedicated to DealDash information and history. Read on for more information.

This is a very special week in DealDash-Land since they are celebrating 10 years of making winners out of bidders. If you are new to DealDash, then you might not be aware of how things got started and the early days of your favorite bidding site. Let’s correct that! Here are some fun facts about your favorite place to bid.


The site was officially launched in 2009. The early days were quite different than what you will find now. There were no cars or fancy trips to be won in 2009.


Did you know that before 2011 the BidBuddy did not exist?! That’s right, 2011 was a great year for those bidders who want to “set it and forget it” because this was the year that the BidBuddy was launched for your bidding joy. The BidBuddy made it possible for busy people who didn’t have hours to spend babysitting an auction to get big wins.


One million bidders is a huge accomplishment, and that feat was accomplished in mid-2012. However, much bigger things were to come in 2013.


In 2013 a true milestone was achieved – 2 million auctions! That’s more than the entire population of the country of Estonia!


DealDash got a big update in 2016 with the addition of the mobile app. This app allows people to easily bid right from their phone by just touching the icon and jumping right into the fun of bidding.


Last year in 2018 DealDash brought many amazing auctions to bidders, such as tropical vacations and even cars. Also, amazingly, these big prizes don’t always go for top dollar, either. In 2018 there was an auction for a weeklong vacation in Thailand was won for a mere $111. This was also the year that the best Black Friday bargain was won – a Ford Mustang!


FInally, what will this year hold for DealDash? It’s up to you. What would you like to win today?

DealDash Tricks for Presents on a Budget


With holidays of all types coming up – Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Christmas, you will need to buy gifts. Here are some tricks from DealDash to get presents on a budget.

There are millions of dollars spent on holiday presents every year. Studies have shown that most people are in a financial bind after Christmas. It is okay to give your family and friends nice presents, but you don’t have to put a hole in your wallet. Sticking to a budget when buying presents will help you stay within your limit. You can still buy memorable gifts on a budget. Here are some tips on how to buy presents for family and friends on a budget, from DealDash.

Set a Budget

If you do not create a budget, you are going to spend too much money on holiday presents. Make a list of the people that you are buying presents for. Put down an estimation of how much the gift will cost and set aside money for that person. This will give you an idea of how much money you need to spend on presents.

Shop on Black Friday

Black Friday is when some of the best deals come out. You can take care of your Christmas shopping list by going shopping the day after Thanksgiving. It is best to go early in the morning to get the doorbusters. Make sure to make a list of things that you need to buy and try to stick to it. Shopping on Black Friday will save you a lot of money.

Shop on DealDash, of Course!

If deals are what you are searching for, then DealDash is the place to shop! You don’t have to wait for a big sale, because you can get awesome deals on DealDash every single day. Personally, I have gotten many things such as a fancy memory foam pillow, a designer sweater, and lots of jewelry for over 50% off! There are gifts for everyone. Here are a few ideas:

Gift Cards of all types: Click for the Gift Cards category

Toys and Games: Click for the Hobbies, Toys, Outdoors, and Games category

Clothing, Shoes, Purses, and Scarves: Click for the Fashion, Health, and Beauty category

Tools, Art, and Home Decor: Click for the Home, Garden, and Tools category

Try Cash Only

If you are on a very strict budget, you can pay for Christmas presents in cash. You will be tempted to go over your limit when you have a credit card. With cash, you will be forced to stick to your Christmas shopping budget, and you won’t go in debt. It is easy to lose track of how much you spend when you use your credit card. Sticking to cash will ease your financial worries after Christmas.

If there are items that you need to order online, consider using your cash to “charge up” a prepaid debit card. This way you can pay online, but you will still only be able to use the particular amount of cash that you have saved up.

Reaching Your Goals with Help from DealDash


Sometimes you just need a little help to reach your goals. Here are some tips from DealDash to get you started.

Let’s face it, achieving your goals can be hard. That’s why they are called “goals” and not “stuff you do every day”. You may have a personal goal such as running a 5K or getting a promotion, or you may have a team goal such as winning a trophy. Most goals are achievable through hard work and practice. Here are some tips from DealDash to keep you striving for your goals.

What is Your Goal

Before you can work on achieving your goal, you need to know exactly what it is. Really think about it, and jot down some notes. For example, I mentioned above that your goal might be to run a 5K. Is your goal to enter a race and complete the 5K, or is your goal to just become a better runner? Write down your thoughts on your goal, and come up with a solid answer.

Once you have come up with a solid goal, then it’s time to work on a plan to achieve it. Please note, that some goals are simply not possible, but you can put forth your best effort and improve yourself along the way.

Break it Up

After you’ve come up with your goal it’s time to come up with some steps to achieve your goal. You typically can’t go from zero to goal, you have to complete some steps along the way. Using the 5K example, you can’t go from never running to entering a 5K. You would have to start slowly, first by walking the distance, then by walking and running, then running the distance. This goal would typically take a few months to achieve if you worked very hard. Even if you didn’t ultimately achieve your goal you would still be improving your health with every step. So figure out the steps that are needed with your particular goal, and get to work.

Think Positively

From the moment you have decided what your goal is to the day of completion, it’s important to think positively. Thinking positively can put you in a better frame of mind and encourage yourself to complete your goal. Even when the going gets tough, it’s important to keep a good attitude and think positively.

DealDash Talks Metal Recycling

When most people think about recycling the first thing that comes to mind is paper, closely followed by plastic water bottles. Did you know that you can recycle many different types of metal?

Most people are familiar with aluminum can recycling, and amazingly an aluminum can goes from being tossed in your recycling bin to being back on the store shelf in 60 days! That is very helpful for the environment, since the recycling process for an aluminum can is so fast there is no need to mine for new materials. Not only does that save our resources, but it also saves gas and manpower as well that can be used for other things.

If you’re curious about the process of how aluminum metal is recycled, it’s pretty simple. First the different types of metal are sorted by magnets, and the aluminum is shredded, washed, and cut into chips, which are in turn melted down. After they’re melted down and formed into small aluminum bricks they are ready to be made into something new! Usually more cans, but they can also be made into aluminum foil,  bike frames, staples, nails, computer parts, golf clubs, ladders, mailboxes, faucets, pots and pans, and even car rims and car trim. It’s amazing how many everyday items are made out of aluminum. Now doesn’t that make you want to recycle your aluminum cans?

Did you know that you can recycle metal products other than just regular aluminum cans that food came in?  You can’t just throw them in the bin, but goods containing precious metals like appliances and phones can often be recycled as well. You just need to find your local scrap yard or e-cycler to get them on the road to being recycled. Or better yet, if they are still working, why not donate them to a charity store? Some of the bigger thrift stores won’t take appliances and computers, but the smaller non-corporate shops as well as the church second-hand shops usually will. Just be sure to call before you bring in anything large to make sure that they have room for it. Saving the Earth while helping other humans – it’s a win-win situation.

Speaking of winning, how about heading over to DealDash? They have plenty of products that have been made from aluminum such as bikes, pots and pans, and mail boxes!

DealDash Helps: Inspire Us

DealDash is a company that strives to be fair and honest. What could be more inspiring than that?

DealDash has a certain knack for inspiring people. Here are a few tips to help you be a more inspiring person. Do it for your family, for your friends, or for your co-workers. Everyone admires a person who they find to be inspiring.

What do you find inspiring? One of the things that I find the most inspiring personally is hope. Hope for the future, hope for life to be fair, hope for peace for the world and all of us in it. To be inspiring to people you have to give them hope. To give another person hope you need to show them that even if things are tough right now if they persevere there will be a light at the end of the tunnel, or a reward for the struggles that they are sure to face. Be inspiring by being realistic to challenges but having hope and faith that things will improve in the long run.

Think of any inspiring story that you have heard on the news or read about in the paper or online. What do all of these stories have in common? They have a real-life hero that isn’t afraid to do the right thing even in the face of adversity. To inspire people you have to be the best that you possibly can be, and act as a leader that people can look up to and feel comfortable following in your footsteps, trusting that you will do the thing that is best for everyone and not just yourself.

Who do you find inspiring? If you aspire to be a power bidder in the online auction world of DealDash then you should watch the auctions as much as possible and pick out a few bidders that you find inspiring and try to emulate their bidding style and their success.
