Saving mom’n pop stores and helping you to save a buck too!


Small stores are facing hard times, as the pressure from online and big box retailers builds. Many stores are forced to go out of business, leaving downtown empty. Fact to the matter is, that usually customers prefer the cheaper prices of larger retailers over the convenience and personal touch of mom’n pop stores.

Obviously everyone, including the smaller stores want to offer the lowest price to the customer and get as much business as they can. However low retail price often comes with scale. If you order 100 items, you have much less bargaining power than if you order a 1 000. Then why wouldn’t the smaller stores just order more inventory? This is in the heart of the problem. You see most of any small business’s capital is tied in inventory. If a television or a piece of clothing is standing in the store unsold, that money can’t be used to pay bills or salaries. Small businesses can’t take too many risks when ordering products.

What about discounting then? Couldn’t the stores order extra, sell what they can and sell the remainder at a discount. This is where the story gets interesting. Did you know, that shops can’t always give as big discounts as they would like. There are many reasons. Usually brands have a minimum advertised price, which means that no retailer can sell the product below that price. This is usually either because price reductions would destroy the value of the product or they fear that extreme discounts will cause customers to return previously bought units to benefit from the sale.

 

Some retailers take the risk and offer these discounts, but a growing number of them have started to rely on a site called DealDash to manage the discounting risks. DealDash buys the products from these retailers at a discount and then host pay-to-participate auctions and sell the products one by one. Now why would you pay to participate in an auction, when the winning isn’t guaranteed? Because all the participants paying for their bids subsidize the price for the winner. That way, someone gets a great deal, way below the minimum advertised price.

Here’s the interesting part, it’s in DealDash’s best interest to make sure most of the bidders find good deals on the site. If no-one would win anything, users would quickly disappear. If however, users on average win good discounts, they will keep returning. The site has been running for almost 10 years, so it must be doing something right. Most active DealDashers say that the trick is to hedge the bids; participate in 5 auctions instead of one. You shouldn’t expect to win every auction you enter, but the once you win will more than make up for it.

Did you know, that shops can’t always discount as much as they would like?

Getting a very good deal on an item you have long desired is satisfying. We can easily spend hours on price comparison sites, hunting for coupons or deals online. With luck and persistence, you might eventually find the deal you were looking for. Have you ever stopped to think, why stores offer discounts at all?

Obviously they want to offer the cheapest price to the customer and get as much business as the can. But how about those -25% or larger discounts, why won’t the retailers simply always sell the product at that price? Usually, when there’s a really hefty discount on a product, there is a special reason behind it. Maybe there’s a newer model coming out, store doesn’t want to carry the product anymore or they simply ordered too many of them and need the money for something else (like payroll). Large discounts are usually the best way to move products quickly.

iPhones are rarely discounted by more than 20%

Host: DealDash is the most talked about auction website in America providing online consumers a way to bid on brand new products and save money while they shop right from the comfort of their own homes. With us today, two ladies who do an awful lot of online auction site shopping because well, let’s just say they do a lot of it, Barbara Sellers and Roseanna Heffernan. Welcome ladies, good morning!

Barbara & Rose : Good morning!

Host: So listen I know that online shopping has just become widely popular, what is it? Is it the lower prices, or the better deals, that’s encouraging more and more people to shop, I mean what are the advantages?

Barbara: Well, is just a lot of fun and it’s very convenient because you don’t have to leave the comfort of your own home

Host: Which is fine for me (laughter)… I want shopping on my PJ.

Barbara: Also a great deal for people who are handicapped and they find it difficult to get out or live a long distance from a shopping center

Host: How long have you been using online auction sites and what are your favorite ones? So I know that you love Deal Dash, How about you?

Roseanna: I absolutely love Deal Dash. I’ve tried multiple uhmmm just to check what’s out there but DealDash.com, you know, they’re fair, they’re honest, I get wonderful, wonderful products at a great price.

Host: how easy it is though to maybe complete our majority holiday shopping? Using an auction style site to shop.

Roseanna: You know for me, I’d rather not go out there and get in the traffic and use my gas and tried to find parking spot. I’d rather sit home and have a cup of coffee, get online, do my shopping. It’s just absolutely wonderful.

Barbara: Me too, because one of the wonderful things about shopping online is that it’s really fast and easy to find exactly what you’re looking for. DealDash has a wonderful variety of items to shop for.

Host: So, let’s get right on to it now, what kind of things you have won?

Barbara: For instance this camera. that retails for $999, I got it for $18.30.

Host: $18???

Barbara: Yes.

Host: Oh my goodness, you also got the sim card!

Barbara: I also got the camera case.

Host: The case came with it too?

Barbara: Right.

Host: The same $18?

Barbara: Right. and now the next time would be the zoom lens.

Host: Oh good for you. How about you Roseanna?

Roseanna:I won multiple, multiple things. I won many TVs, mmm.. kitchen appliances, mmm.. video games, I do all christmas shopping online. But one of my favorite things actually that i use all the time is this Conair sound machine. as a post partum nurse, I have sometimes you have to go to phototherapy, they’re not happy about that so this is something that soothes the babies that i use all the time

Host: Oh that’s wonderful. These ladies were such successful shoppers on DealDash, that the creator said, “Oh my goodness they’ve won all these bids, we’re gonna make them stars. They ended up using you for a national television commercial, right?

Roseanna: Isn’t that fantastic?

Host: That’s amazing!!!

Roseanna: yes, yes.

Host: what is it about? you were just winning bid after bid after bid?

Roseanna: Not every bid. but we certainly get our share. I have one every couple hundred auctions… (commercial sample) “I got all these for less than fifty dollars on DealDash.com” how about you Barbara?

Barbara: Well, the first 4 months, I won 104 auctions. Coz I tried other penny auction sites. But it soon became obvious to me that DealDash is by far the best one.

Host: I have to tell you honestly, it does seem kinda little too good to be true to think that, say an iPad for 10 bucks. How is that possible?

Roseanna: You have to be at the right place at the right time.

Host: Anybody can get out there and bid right?

Both: Yes

Host: What happens if I’m shopping and I don’t win the bid?

Barbara: Well, as long as you shop for the items that you would buy anyway, like, this gas card that I got for 83 cents. This is a $50-gas card. I know I’m going to be buying gas. So if I dont win, I can buy the gas card and Deal Dash always ships free of charge even if you do a “Buy it Now”. So I have nothing to lose.

Host: What kind of tips can you offer or strategies or anything you can give us so we can go out and win some auctions.

Roseanna: One of the things DealDash has is a bid buddy with no limit. So you can put on as many bids there as you want, you dont have to sit there in front of your computer the whole time if you have something to do, you can put your bids in, you can go do something else, come back and check your auction.

Host: Barbara you are so funny, you are like “yeah, put my bid in, I go out, wash the dishes, and you can go back and check, right and see?

Roseanna: Very easy to add more bids or subtract bids. If you see that you probably don’t want to bid that much money or that many bids, you can cancel your bids and it’ll get back to your account automatically.

Host: Let me ask you a quick question, before we let you go. The fair auction guarantee on DealDash.com, what is that?

Roseanna: Well, the fair auction is if you are new to DealDash and you try to win an auction and you don’t win you can get your bids back and try again.

Host: Oh that is terrific to know! So, there are no losers, only winners. I love it. I love to shop obviously. So, ladies thank you for stopping by and giving me another way to do it. Appreciate you.

Both: Thank you.

Must Have Appliances Are Being Won For Next To Nothing!

This is a sponsored post by DealDash.com. All claims made are verified to be accurate.

KitchenAid mixers, Rachel Ray cookware and Keurig coffee makers are all must have items but can be heavy on the wallet. DealDash.com is a website that offers savvy bidders the chance of getting these prestigious items up to 99% off retail prices.

Getting a decent deal is common knowledge online- we have all seen decent deals from buying from Amazon or Walmart, but DealDash takes the deal hunt to a whole new level. The site figured out how to incorporate the latest and greatest products, with big savings and the fun and excitement of outbidding a rival.

DealDash.com has one of the best selections of products- The selection extends from the newest technology, iPads, TVs, Home theatre equipment, to the highest quality kitchen items. Some recent sales include a KitchenAid Artisan Series Mixer, which retails for $350 but was won for just $17.

No wonder deals like these seem “too good to be true”, but once you learn the ropes of the system, it all adds up. The DealDash model works with customers buying bids prior to participating in auctions. When a user bids on an item, the clock ticks down from 10 seconds. If there are no new bidders, the last person to bid will get the incredibly low deal.

Before jumping right in, it’s paramount that users familiarise themselves with how the site works. The biggest takeaway is that you need to factor in the bids used when calculating the final price.  If you have a clear strategy and bid smart, you are in for some great deals. Bids on similar sites can cost up to 60 cents each, but DealDash frequently offers them for as little as 18 or 15 cents a piece.

Another great thing about DealDash compared to other auction sites is that if you don’t enjoy your experience, you can get a full refund on your first bid pack purchase within 90 days, no questions asked. This makes giving the site a go totally risk free, and is a big driver why so many bidders have decided to do so in the last couple of months.
