Give Thanks! What Are You Thankful For?

6343226130_dc563835f8_zThanksgiving is tomorrow, November 27, 2014.  And while ’tis the season for yummy goodies, pies, cakes, turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and the like, it’s also the time to really reflect and give thanks. There are ways to reflect and be grateful for what we have every single day.

Here are a few of my favorite thanksgiving quotes!

1.      “We can lift ourselves and others as well, when we refuse to remain in the realm of negative thought and cultivate within our hearts an attitude of gratitude.” –Thomas S. Monson

2.      “Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way.” –Native American saying

3.      “Be present in all things and thankful for all things.” –Maya Angelou

4.  “For each new morning with its light, for rest and shelter of the night, for health and food, for love and friends, for everything thy goodness sends. I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and new.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson

5.  “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” –Oprah Winfrey

We all have so many things to be thankful for! Friends, family, loved ones, pets, sunshine, cold, warmth, snow, rain! Some of these may not be liked very much, especially if you have to shovel the snow, but! Remember that all of these things are here for a reason and we need to be thankful for them!

Give thanks for… a warm bed, food in your cabinets, clean water, reliable transportation – your car or public transit, deals on items on Black Friday so you can get the things you want and need and still save money for other things like experiences! Save up and plan a trip for 2015, make it an epic one! Hike Machu Picchu, or relax on an island in the sun. Sometimes the best things money can buy are not things at all, but experiences that broaden your mind and help you to see the world in a new way!

What are some of the things you’re thankful for? Would it be the items you have been able to win on DealDash this year, did you win auctions with free bids? New connections and friendships? Experiences? Your job and other opportunities? Share with us what you’re thankful for!

How to Bid on DealDash

One reader recently told us that they found out about DealDash on a TV commercial, but still doesn’t understand how it all works.

If you watch the commercial below you will see how the bidders say they won items for $100, iPhone for $8, a lot of items for less than $50, and so on. All great deals, but the end price includes all bids placed on the item. So how does it work and how can you save money by bidding on DealDash?

1. First, you need to register on and purchase bids.

When you register and choose a username you do have a choice to purchase a bid pack, but you are not required to. Bids cost $0.60 each with your initial bid pack. If you purchase additional bid packs during a bid promo your bids will be significantly cheaper.

For instance, this week on Black Friday Week on DealDash bids are discounted and are currently $0.15 each. It’s better to buy bids when there are promotions because then you will have an advantage bidding against bidders who just have their initial bid pack or $0.60 bids!

2. Understand the bidding process!

Know how DealDash works! It’s an auction site unlike the traditional auction format you’ve become accustomed to. All auctions start at $0 and each bid raises the price of the end price (the price that a bidder will pay if they win) by one cent $0.01. You can place a bid and a bidder can place a bid over you and with each bid placed the auction clock is reset by 10 seconds. So if it’s at 2 seconds and you feel like you’re going to win it could be really frustrating to see a bidder bid over you and add more time on the clock> This is how penny auctions work and why sites like DealDash enable bidders to get great deals on new laptops, cameras, iPads and so much more!

Have you bid on

As seen in the below commercial some bidders have won over 100 items on DealDash!
