I recently and in the past have received a damaged or inoperable item from this site. Upon contacting the support team, I was Immediately treated with concern and professionalism.My situation was handled in a very fast and efficient manner. The staff members were always able to reach a very agreeable conclusion. Many thanks to the entire staff and the efforts that they put forth. Dana Nelson.
Not knowing what i was doing at the time i started to try to get something for less.
I found my self being charged on my credit card more that what the product could be bought for.
Sorry i'm old and shouldn't be doing something i know nothing about.
Thanks for understanding. This is not for me
Yes! I highly recommend DealDash over any other auction site because all items are with free sihipping and handling, bids are credited to you as you bid and when you BIN all used bids are credited back to you. It is a win-win.
I received an Apple Ipad mini cover and keyboard. It did not fit, plus it wouldn't latch as the instructions stated. I contacted customer service and the gave me step by step instructions how to return and a statement saying that I'll receive a Walmart gift card in place of the item.
Below is my original review and I'll leave it for others to view and be aware and forewarned about the "FREE" auctions and overbidding that still occurs. DealDash returned the 175 bids that I lost due to a free auction that was not advertised as such. I would not waste bids on FREE auctions. I was able to use them to acquire the item I originally placed it on. I also bid on a $10 Walmart card that ended up going for over $14. Why people overbid on items like this just baffles me. When you add the cost of each bid to that it simply makes no sense!
Because they made things right and bidding, for the most part, has returned to normal, I give them 4 stars. I received the gift cards I won two weeks ago, as well as the item, which was as advertised. We'll see if the deals continue, as I believe I've gotten more conservative and don't put all of my bids from the beginning, especially if I believe it will go over $5. I'll put in a bid so I'm locked out when it hits the point of no new bidders.
Once you figure out how and when to bid, the deals are there!
I joined because I'm on disability income and thought I'd try and see if I could get some deals. At first it was ok, as I got three $10 gift cards for 1 bid each. Then DealDah had a "Free" weekend, where all winners got the items free, regardless of the final price. Deals ended. people were bidding $50 gift cards for as high as $120 or more! The only people winning were people with a lot of money to bid waste...and DealDash! People seemed to forget each bid wasn't a penny, but at minimum 13 cents each! Many items were going past their retail value. There were a few deals, but the auctions were usually between 2 and 5 AM. When the free weekend ended the started a 50% off. Bidders continued overbidding. I waited til that ended to bid on anything. At least I thought it had ended. I put an auto-bid of 175 bids on an item at 4am, which judging by prior auctions would have easily won. I checked to see if I won only to find DealDash, without showing, or advertising, implemented the Free auction auction again and naturally people overbid again. What pissed me off was they did it without notice of any kind. Before they had "Free" and 50% of in a headline and on each auction. These showed nothing except on the auction. I checked other items I put one auto-bid, so I could bid later, after the $5 cutoff. All of them were free, all auctions were free again, but you only found out if you opened the auction. DealDash is the real winner. The more people bid, the more you paid them. When my 60 bids are gone, so am I! You have to have deep pockets to win now and I don't
I gave 2 stars only because some still get occasional good deals and because some of the blame is on the stupidity of the bidders, who forget their penny bids cost much more. Some are addicted to bidding, while others can afford to waste money and dealdash has found a way to exploit that.When you have 4 or 5 people auto bidding a $850 retail, 50 inch TV over $500 by the penny, at actually $.13 minimum each, and continue because the winner only pays 50% of the final price, who knows how much they'll spend bidding against each other before having to buy it. I know that TV has already been paid for and much more!
I don't know how long it takes to receive your items, but it's been a week and I have yet to receive a shipping notice.
Tip for consumers: Unless you have money to waste, stay away from "FREE" auctionsAsk Landon about DealDash
First time i tried got in a biding war with several other determined bidders after spending over $100 dollars dropped out received nothing when they posted the winner wasn't even one of the people i was bidding against sure I can get my Bids back by buying the item at full price$700 no thank Ill stay away
I tried all the other penny auction sites, beezid, quibid, the one with gift cards, ect. Deal Dash is the only site that is not a scam. They give prizes at reasonable prices to get back. It takes a while to get use to the system and you will lose money at first but once you get it the bidding will get easier. The trick is to go for lower priced auctions you can afford. Figure out the price it costs and if you go over the buy it now price in what the bids are worth you can just buy the item and get all your bids back. On top of that it will feed the meter for you to get free bids. Plus the customer service is easy to work with and are fair. The only problem I have had is with customer service actually getting back to you, especially after you respond to their initial request, and the fact I have received 3 broken items from them and have only been a member for a month. Having to ship them back is a real pain in the ass especially when you have to pay for it. But on this site if you play it right you can get good deals
Walmart shipped 2 items to me instead of 1. DealDash assisted me in a couple of ways to return the 1 extra item. I was very pleased with Mark Lee's assistance
but Walmart should be schooled of such returns. I will not be using the gift card Walmart gave me in order to accept my return for I feel I would be stealing if I did.
27 Questions & Answers
the more valuable the article the harder to win.
Personally, I gave up on Deal Dash due to the BID STOMPING and Jumpers and the gready nature of some bidders, who stockpile bids.
Also, even though Deal Dash supposedly has means to catch Buddy Bidding, I myself have caught at least 4 people doing buddy bidding, reported it, and nothing was ever done about it.
Finally I no longer play on Deal Dash, for the reasons I mentioned, but thats my choice.
Its up to you, on what you want to do.
Hope this helps.
