How to Sign Up for DealDash: Tips for Beginner Bidders!

You just found, you’re wondering what it’s all about and what you should know before you start bidding!

DealDash newbies, this is for you so listen up!

 1. Register – when you first sign up for you will see a registration page on

dealdash join

First, find out more about the site before you get started.

  • Shipping is always free

“All items on DealDash come with free shipping, and are typically shipped out within 24 hours.”

  • Get Bids back if you don’t win

“If you don’t win the auction you can always buy the item at a normal, fair retail price and get your bids back.”

  • 90-Day money back guarantee

“If you try DealDash and find it’s not for you, we’ll refund your first purchase within 90 days. No questions asked. Simply email”

After you register you will be taken to a bid pack purchase page. You do not have to purchase bids just yet, if you don’t want to or aren’t ready. But you can’t bid without purchasing a bid pack first! There is one bid pack for beginners, and it’s a 200 bids bid pack for $32- this would make bids $0.16 each. You can easily reload your bid balance by purchasing additional bid packs after the initial bid pack purchase.  So jump in and give it a try. DealDash accepts major credit cards and PayPal for payment.

2. Familiarize yourself with the site and learn how penny auctions work.

On the homepage you will see all of the active and upcoming auctions on DealDash right now, plus 2 ended auctions and the end price. You can see more ended auctions by clicking on the “Winners” tab on the top of the page.

DealDash’s features are very different from other penny auctions.

- “No Jumpers” Notice that it says “no jumpers” on top of every auction item box. This means that no new bidders can enter the auction after the bid price has reached $5.00.

-”Buy it Now” All auctions on DealDash have “buy it now” this means that if you would like to buy an item at any time you can buy it for the stated price, which is really the retail price on many sites including Best Buy and  You can buy an auction with buy it now even if you did not bid on the auction. The advantage to this feature is that if you have spent bids on trying to win an item and did not win you can buy it now and get all of those bids back into your bidding account and also get the item for the stated price + free shipping. Win/Win you will just have to get better or luckier and win something next time you try!

When you click on an item to see the auction if you do not have any bids in your account and are a beginner you will not be able to see the entire auction page or bid, but you will see a summary of the item and the average winning bid price for it. For instance,

-Open auctions vs. No New Bidders

dealdash tipsBid Now and No New Bidders - 

The auctions that have a yellow bid button and say “Bid Now” are available for bidding. However, if the auction has a yellow ribbon across it stating “No New Bidders” this means the item’s “end price” has already met the $5.00 price point threshold and if you have not bid in the auction prior to this cut off point you are not eligible to bid in it.

Do I have to pay for bids when I first sign up? No, you are not obligated to pay for a bid pack when you sign up but take note that if you do put in your credit card info you will be charged the stated amount for beginner (200 bids) bid pack. 

DealDash is a spin on the traditional pay to bid penny auction. It really is a penny auction, just offers features that make it better.

Timers on a penny auction site are not always definite like an eBay auction. A timer can show 2 seconds and end in 2 seconds, or time can be added and the auction prolonged once another bidder places a bid. The final end price, or the current end price, until an item ends, is increased by one penny with each bid placed. So if an item is $5.86 586 bids have been placed on the item so far by all participating bidders!

Be sure to familiarize yourself with the site and process by reading more of our tips here and by checking out the site for yourself at

Good luck & happy bidding!

The Best Deals on Everything You Want – DealDash July 10th-17th

Do you like winning prizes? Sometimes it’s not easy to win a prize drawing, right? It’s not always easy to win on DealDash either – but this entertaining shopping site has been around for a few years and every day users are getting great deals.

How does DealDash work and why is it that users are able to get great deals? 

There’s always one winner on an auction, and while the winner may be able to get an item at a discount DealDash makes money from the culmination of bids spent on that one item by multiple users. Do they make a huge killing of a profit on each and every item? No- but the site has been pretty profitable allowing them to offer high quality, brand new items for everyone. Plus, you don’t lose if you don’t want to. You can get all of the bids you placed in an auction back into your account to try to win something else another time if you use buy it now. So for instance, this item here for a Nike+ SportWatch GPS Powered By TomTom with Sensor. nike + sport watch will only be won by one bidder at – if you were bidding and decided you wanted the item still, wouldn’t mind paying the $144 retail  perhaps you had already spent $80 in bids that you wanted to reclaim – you can buy it for the retail price and get your bids back to bid and try to win other items. Great deal if you want the item you are bidding on and don’t want to walk away with your bids gone. It’s totally up to you. Since you are spending money each time you bid, and then again buy buy it now you may not want to for every item, but it can be a great idea.

Yesterday, July 16th this awesome Huffy 26-Inch Cranbrook Women’s Cruiser valued at $108 sold to yvonnemonique for $4.38!

Double Dash! How to Get Even More (2X)! Free Bids This Week

double dashDealDash always offers free bids to bidders when their “time as highest bidder” meter increases. This week DealDash is running a Double Dash promotion! This means the time as highest bidder bids will be doubled!

DealDash’s Time As Highest Bidder Explained!

When you are the highest bidder, in any auction, you will earn time towards your next level. When you reach a new level you will start to receive free bids. What’s even better is the more levels you reach, the more bids you get!

Look on the bottom of any page on – you’ll see a status meter on the very bottom, it’s to the right of your name and bid count and shows your current level and your time as the highest bidder.

You are the highest bidder every time you are the highest/unopposed bidder in an auction – the time you were the highest bidder gets calculated and is displayed next to the meter. The time in the countdown clock is the amount of time you need to reach the next level. When the Claim Bids button is activated you can click claim bids and reach the next level.

Check out this helpful diagram from the very helpful Tactics & Tips page on


The levels go from 0-well, right now Level 70 is probably the highest level anyone has made it so far.. but say you were on level 28, you’d get 300 free bids, level 29 would get you 
500 free bids!

The first level requires just 60 seconds of being the highest bidder to claim 1 free bid.

time as highest bidder

When’s the best time to get more free bids by being the highest bidder?

I would suggest you try bidding during the early morning, or late at night. There might be less competition (or maybe other bidders are just tired) causing them to click the bid button more often.

Or, you could just click bid now and bid over anyone who outbids you. Some may think you’re crazy, but for some this is a strategy to win too. By clicking bid again and again each time someone else bids you really cancel out anyone elses’ bid, they may grow frustrated and quit, or confuse other bidders who decide not to bid against you.

Not only can you get 2x the free bids this week on DealDash here are more ways to earn free bids! double dash

“This review is from: Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player (Electronics)
So the Chromecast came to my office today (Amazon is always best on shipping). Within 5 minutes it was setup (go to webpage or app). Within 10 minutes of getting it we had 5 different devices connected and casting to it (iphone, s2, HTC Dna, Chromebook Pixel, and Mac Mini). Everyone on the same network as the Chromecast can see it and control it (not just the person who started it). We took turns adding our next youtube clip, Google Play song, or Netflix show. Seemless integration between switching content from all different devices.

This is a game changer and apps are stupid to not jump on this bandwagon. Thank you google for once again innovating at a LOW price point!”
