Gift cards are an extremely popular item on DealDash, why do people like them so much? Well, let me tell you.
For starters, DealDash has an excellent variety of many different types of gift cards. Here is just a quick list of some of the gift cards that DealDash often has up for bid:
- Toys R Us
- Bath and Body Works
- Bass Pro Shops
- Shell gas station
- Old Navy
- American Airlines
- Panera Bread
- Many, Many, Many more
DealDash keeps up with the changing trends, and even occasionally has gift cards for new online businesses such as Swap.com and EcocentricMom.com – which I have won and enjoyed both. I think that it’s such a great idea for DealDash to pair up with new and small businesses, it’s really win-win-win, for the small business, for DealDash, and for us as customers.
Unfortunately, I have found that the smaller $10 and $25 ones are more difficult to win than the larger $50, $100, and up gift cards. I feel that the reason behind this is that most people don’t mind taking a chance on a $10 or $25 gift card to a restaurant or store that they often go to anyway, such as Panera Bread or Dunkin’ Donuts.
DealDash has a wonderful feature that many people take advantage of called BIN (Buy It Now). That means that if a person doesn’t WIN the gift card outright, then they can always BIN (Buy It Now) and get the gift card, free shipping, and all of their bids back to use on another auction. Not only that, but they get to keep the “clock time” that they gained by bidding on the gift card.
Gift cards obviously make for good gifts, but they have so many other uses as well. Here is a list of some of the different ways that you can use the gift cards that you win or BIN from DealDash:
- Rewards for good grades
- Allowance money
- Budgeting tool so you don’t overspend
- Raffle prize
- Give as a donation
- Teacher appreciation
- Back to school shopping – let your teen shop alone without fear of losing the cash
- As a “thank you” to postal worker, garbage man, etc.
- As a tip at a restaurant
- As a way to shop online without using your credit card
