Detailed Rating Summary
Dealdash is and does everything they claim. The auctions are fair and honest as advertised and the customer service is quick and easy. I've saved a ton of money with over 85 auctions I've won. The item's I've won are an exceptional value and high quality. I highly recommend you give it a try and you won't be disappointed!
I've been fortunate to win many auctions here at DD. And that's great.
But I had to return an item, received a pre-paid Fed Ex return label, sent the Bluetooth speaker back a couple of months ago and not one response, reply or receipt of a replacement for the defective item.
And that's not so great. Consequently, I have suspended bidding at DD and now spend my money at Quibids....they are great and great.
Dealdash truly is a fair and honest auction site but there are some keys to doing well that cannot be ignored by either newbies or penny auction veterans. First, some basic math skills are required. Simply divide what a particular item is worth to you by the price charged per bid to arrive at the maximum number of bids to place. Oh yeah, don't forget to take a good estimate of the final bidding price off of your value before you do your division because you will be paying that also. After that, use the bid buddy and walk away.
Of course this method requires that you only bid on items that you are Willing to purchase at full value if needed. Also, remember that I stated to use the value that you place on an item as opposed to the stated retail value. Normally the stated value is pretty much what you will see in a store but several items are not really available in stores yet and some of the values listed for those items seems very high in a few cases.
If you use your head a bit you can easily save substantial money on unique and very valuable items. Just don't get caught up in the competition so much that you lose whether you win the auction or not.
At times I have found Deal Dash to be so busy with bidders that it's difficult to compete. I do enjoy though the different options Deal Dash employs to help make the experience of bidding fun and enjoyable to play. It's a challenge but exciting game that just keeps on getting better. I do wish some bidders would let the bid clock run it's 10 second course instead of bumping bidders off. It's a matter of common courtesy.
Although I have my moments of disappointment I enjoy the gaming very much. It is always challenging to try to outthink the other players. When to play and when to bug out is the question. The prizes are very good and I have always received what I expected from the description. The opportunity to buy the item and receive your bids back if you don't win is superb and best over other auctions I have and do participate in. Also like you have other opportunities to try to win a similar item especially if you would like to have it and you happen to miss an auction, or decide not to bin. I very much like the discounted bids since I tend to blow a lot of bids trying to win big items and bid packages.
Recently, I had guests at my beach house who marveled at all of the new decor and technology. I had to tell them all about DealDash!!! I ended up doing an hour long DealDash seminar for them, as they all wanted to jump online and begin winning auctions!! I know 5 people who I will now be bidding against. Perhaps I should have kept the secret to myself???
