DealDash Might as Well be Giving Away Free Bids with This Promo

The guys over at DealDash must have temporarily lost their minds, because with this latest promotion of theirs, the bids might as well be free.  There is no coupon code needed or anything…you literally just show up and get bids at this absurdly low price:

dealdash promotional sale banner

We’re pretty big fans of DealDash and a sale like this only makes us love these guys even more…there is however one caveat…

Anytime that DealDash runs a promotion like this it means that the competition is going to be a little more fierce, as people are going to be armed to the teeth with more bids!  To be sure that you don’t just end up getting hammered you’re going to want to make sure you’re doing at least the following three things:

1 You’ve got to have enough bids in your account to make sure you can actually make it to the price the auction typically ends (not only in price, but when the bidders that you’re bidding against typically “fall off” the bidding bandwagon).  Of course the only way that you’re going to know that type of information is to make sure you’re following the next step…

2 Bid-Ninja! – That’s effectively the entire second step.  Alright, we’re being a little cheeky here but we’re not saying this for no reason.  How are you supposed to know when you should begin bidding?  How about when you should never bid before?  How would you know when the other bidders on the site typically call it quits on an auction or if they just so happen to be bidding on a type of auction that they win more than 50% of the time (indicating that this is obviously a favorite type of auction for them)?  The answer to all of these questions is of course by having Bid-Ninja.  There is no DealDash power bidder that isn’t using Bid-Ninja.

3 You’ve got to have a strategy.  Whether that strategy is a simple one or a complex multi-layered onion of a strategy, it doesn’t matter (well, it matters a bit), but the point remains the same.  Walking into an auction and randomly throwing a few bids around isn’t going to get you very far.  If you’ve got a strategy in place, you’ll be more vigilant with when & how you bid.  That’s the most important part of having the strategy in the first place…so you’ve got something to stick to and so that you know you aren’t bidding emotionally or because of ego!

Anyway, we just wanted to let you know that if you’re a bidder on DealDash and you want to get yourself what are effectively free bids at the current promotional price then head over before the sale ends.  We don’t know when it will end (for all we know it ended in the time it took us to write this blog post up) so you better hurry.

Our DealDash Review…Tons of Users, Plenty of Auctions & Lots of Fun

There are a lot of new people looking for a review of DealDash as they are on the upswing with a ton of growth and new users arriving daily.  The public penny auction stats Bid-Ninja shows for DealDash (along with the other biggest names in penny auctions) has seen a tremendous amount of new incoming data.  Our leaderboard is constantly changing and there are so many auctions with new names showing as the winner.  Compare this to QuiBids where it seems that there are just a handful of the same winners lately and the choice of where to spend your money on bids is clear.

With this huge influx of bidders and new interest, a lot of people are looking for a review of DealDash because they want to be sure that it’s not a scam and/or if they’ll actually be able to win some of the auctions for the low prices they see in the advertisements for DealDash like the one below.

We here at Bid-Ninja pride ourselves on being able to help the penny auction players of the world win more auctions by bringing the best information to them (and we’ve been doing so for years).  There is no site or person out there with more data on penny auctions than us, and we can tell you unequivocally that DealDash is one of the very best sites to play on and you really can win auctions for name brand goods & electronics for pennies on the dollar…but don’t expect it to happen every time and without a little practice.

We are constantly getting tickets & emails from new users asking us if DealDash (along with QuiBids, MadBid, the now defunct Beezid, etc) are legitimate.  They of course are, however there are a few things you need to make sure you don’t do if you’re a newcomer to the “penny auction” scene, such as:

  • Think You’ll Win Every Time

    While playing on DealDash is fun and exciting (as it should be), you have to be prepared to lose some auctions…but that’s part of the fun too!  Don’t let a loss make you think you can’t win or that it’s some kind of elaborate setup.

  • Bid On Too Many Auctions with Too Few Bids

    A lot of people make the mistake of placing one or two bids on one auction, don’t win and then instead of sticking it out on that auction bounce over to another auction, place one or two bids without winning and then once again run off to another…and continue to repeat this cycle.  This is effectively giving away your bids.  To win on DealDash or any of the other penny auction sites, you’ll need to stick it out for the long haul.  Part of winning means showing your opponents that you’re not going to give up!

  • This isn’t just a shameless plug for Bid-Ninja…you really do need to know who you’re playing against and what type of bidder they are.  If you’re in an auction against 10 people who have all won a thousand auctions each and you just showed up to place that first shiny bid of yours, you can bet your bottom dollar (or penny) that they know that and they’re going to be trying to intimidate you.  If you’re just starting out make sure you know who you’re playing against and try to pick appropriate auctions.

  • Lose an Auction and Quit

    We see this constantly…people arrive at DealDash, buy the smallest available bid pack, pick an auction and bid their heart out and lose…then quit DealDash and penny auction playing altogether.  If that’s all your budget allows for doing, then it’s probably best to keep on moving.  Winning is a numbers game and you’ll absolutely have to play on multiple auctions to not only get the hang of it, but to win an auction.  Losing one single auction and then quitting altogether doesn’t make DealDash or any other site a scam, you simply didn’t play enough!

Barbecue Related Auctions on DealDash

So yes, our “review” of DealDash is really simple…they are one of the top notch penny auction sites to play on.  They have a huge selection, a very loyal following of users, great customer service, fast delivery and so on.  There isn’t really anything negative we have to say about them.  Most of the “bad reviews” you’ll find for DealDash have to do with users who were making one of the mistakes in our list above.  Bid-Ninja wouldn’t have all of the data we do for them if there weren’t thousands of very happy customers winning great merchandise for low prices every single day.

Beezid Shut Down? Many Left Feeling Beezid is a Scam

Since about early October 2016, not a single auction on Beezid.com has actually allowed for bidders to place any bids, with all auctions being listed as on “standby”.  This has left many people wondering if Beezid has shut down, gone out of business, claimed bankruptcy or a variety of other causes for not allowing anybody to place any bids or participate in contests of any kind.

Currently the Beezid website looks like this:

What Happened/is Happening to Beezid Now?

  • No auctions are running

    With no auctions running users with bids left in their accounts are unable to use them to place any bids.

  • No message about closing down

    You’d think that if a site as large and popular as Beezid was going to close it’s doors that it wouldn’t have happened so unceremoniously.  If you visit the Beezid site now you won’t see a single message or blog post or anything else indicating what has happened, is happening or will happen.

  • All links on the site link to the homepage

    A recent, and very strange, site update has left every link & menu item on the site just linking directly back to the homepage making it impossible to navigate to any other page, let alone log into your Beezid account.

  • Tremendous amount of negative feedback

    One of the most unsettling things about this development with Beezid is that many users are left feeling that Beezid is a huge scam.  The very popular penny auction forum for avid PA players “Penny Auctions Forum” has actually dedicated an entire section to the shut down of Beezid and the fallout here.  One of the threads in that section entitled “Beezid Chargebacks” is up to 15 pages!

Looking for Help with Your Beezid Account?

The best resource we’ve been able to find to share with our loyal Bid-Ninja users is the previously linked to Penny Auction Forum, more specifically, the Beezid section.  There users have been posting ways they’ve been able to successfully recover some of the funds from their accounts through various methods, along with sharing contact information and just generally being able to speak with others who have experienced the same negative experience.

What’s to Come

Sadly, we don’t know what is going to happen to the users who lost thousands or didn’t have merchandise delivered, or even the owners of Beezid themselves.  What we can say is that we here at Bid-Ninja are very sorry for those who were affected by this and we hope that Beezid makes all of their customers whole.  For a very long time Beezid was a favorite of the penny auction community and it’s very disappointing to see them handling this situation in this manner.

Have You Heard That Bid-Ninja is Working On Supporting This Awesome Penny Auction Site?

You may or may not have already heard, but we’ve been working on making a decision about which penny auction to begin supporting within the Bid-Ninja software next…and after countless hours of research making sure they deliver on time, have a great product selection, have a site that is fun to play on, have perfect customer service and a lot of other things (you know, all the things that make a penny auction site the “cream of the crop” so to speak) we’ve made our decision.

You’ll be excited to hear that Bid-Ninja is now working on rolling out support for…drumroll please…HappyBidDay!!!

We’ve had a TON of requests from our existing users to begin supporting them, but have held off until we were able to do our research thoroughly & completely.  We’re thrilled that we will soon support another top tier penny auction site like theirs.

So once again we here are Bid-Ninja are here to bring you incredible news.  We’ve been looking into another penny auction site to incorporate into the Bid-Ninja software and after a lot of investigation into: their site, their customer satisfaction level, product selection, delivery times and all of the other factors that go into what makes a penny auction site a great place to play we’ve decided to move forward!
