I took a daughter to attend her business with Buncombe County Social Service Dept and there was no parking available on the street out front. There was a parking lot to the side of building, that she said was where her boyfriend always parked and directed me into it. I parked the vehicle and we went in to attend what she had to do. We came out to find a parking ticket on my windshield. I saw no coin operated meters and since I did not know why the ticket was given, I called the number on the ticket. First off the woman was ruid, Telling me their were signs in place. I got out my vehicle and was looking but still did not see them. She said they were about middle ways of the lot. I finally found the signs. That said you must download a app and pay for parking on line which was $5.00. When asked how long I would have to pay the fine, she said one week. or I would have to pay additional fees after the first week of $10.00 plus ticket, after second week a fee of $35.00 plus ticket. I feel Buncombe County or the City of Asheville, should not allow this to happen to their citizens. First off I have never been to that side of Asheville and did not know of charged parking. It is my first and only parking violation ever received. I would assume people go to their local Social Service Office due to needing some form of help. The county should provide ample parking. In the county system they also provide ample time to pay fines. This company gives you no time to pay. Not to mention not all people can afford smart/data phones. I will never park in one of their lots again for anything as I now know what to look for. Same with any events, I work hard and my money will be kept in my pocket. I will avoid any events, they are involved with. Maybe if the locals did the same, They would see how it affects the business across Buncombe County, cause they just lost mine. I paid their demands of the fine on line but I can and will drive elsewhere to do business from this point on.

Wow Deal Dash says it asked it's customers What They Wanted... I was never asked anything but, I for one was looking forward to their new promotions. Until I bidded in not one but 17 gift card auctions in the same day. Easier to win, Not on your life. All I did was manage to BIN them all and their attached bids at .60 each. I would love to buy extra bids and bid in some of their product auctions, as I am sure in part it is why I rarely win anything when bidding. However there are many players who do nothing but drive the gift cards beyond retail. I do not know if they are teamers but my guess is they are...I have battled many of them during bidding, the same people win which indicates to me they team up... I manage to win one gift card in almost 8 months of bidding and it costed me over 3000 bids to win it. I tried to get out of that one but the second I cancelled my bid buddy it ended with me as a winner. I find it amazing that these people automatically know when you are trying to cancel your bid buddy. My thoughts is these certain bidders are using some sort of 3rd party software. Or colluding which is unfair to say the least... Now Deal Dash addressed this during the beginning of 2018 with a new Terms of Use. (Any kind of collusion or team play is strictly forbidden on DealDash) So it indicates to me, that they do know double account holders is a problem in some areas... All I know is It costed me dearly during the beginning of 2018 during their so called promotion auctions. So much so that I had to changed my mind and the way I view their bidding site. It is really up to you if you want to trust them to invest your money. Product prices are extremely high for the average buyer, However the quality of what I did have to bin seemed to be good. You basically have to decide before entering a auction to buy it at retail. If you are choosing to pay retail, Then yes buying bids and bidding is safe. You might get a savings as I have done when I began bidding. Their promotion of free bids went from 30 a day to 15 free bids a day. However in the gift card area, it does not help you as what I call elite bidders are the same people who win with a savings all the time. However, if you pay attention to them, You will see them bidding in every card auction 24 hours around the clock. They have a huge advantage over minor bidders who are wanting to earn bids instead of buying them. The time meters do fill up faster but is it all worth it. After you hit certain levels it becomes longer bidding levels, like 48 hrs or more. Your bids get stomped out and you will bin a card or product without earning any time at all on your own time meter. I have had to do this especially on smaller cards. I enjoy bidding for the most part on their site. I would not want to buy bids at .60 each though, just to lose them in these auctions. Even at .10 each, when you have to give up 3,000 bids to win a 100.00 gift card, You are basically paying 300.00 for bids and receiving a maybe 50.00 savings after a 24 hour sitting at your PC watching the auction when it is a 50% off promotional sale. Free bid earning is what you have to do. Business people already know this and their in it for a long haul cause they know your bidding to buy it. They feed off of you and the company at hand... Each DealDash bid is a limited, non-transferable, one-year license to place one bid on a DealDash auction. Bids have no monetary value; are not credited against the purchase price of products purchased on the Site; and may not be exchanged for money or any items of monetary value. People think ahead of bid cost .10 to .60 cents at any time adds up...

While I had written a good review of this site, I have since ceased most bidding on their site, due to all of the changes within the company made that I don't agree with. Once they stopped their on line chat, their community fb interaction, and now for the most part company lack of communication by phone or emails. I have little desire to support their cause or bid on the site. Many gift cards in the beginning of the year not received and no resolutions really caused me to back away from there site, I rarely bid on anything as the site has really changed and not for the better. So I will not be promoting them to anyone I know. If you ask today I would simply say. Join at your own risk.
