Signed up for a Deal Dash account and bought a 50% off bid package for $63.00. After reviewing several auctions or penny bid products I was starting to notice a pattern in the bidding process. Knowing that I was already ripped off I decided to find a product that I wanted to waste all of my bids on. I researched several items and was trying to find a product that did not have much traffic. I eventually found a mystery auction that looked appealing, the other auctions like this one was selling for less than $5.00. After using a 100 bids or so the pattern started and I was able to determine exactly who the next bidder was going to be. This shows that Deal Dash is using Computer Automated Bots so they can retrieve your bids and gain profit from what you spent on the bid package. I have posted a video on youtube with my findings. Please view and like so we can work together to shut Deal Dash down. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=TyKsM9oBcvk

More than meets the eye

AUTHOR: WinsomeLosesome - (USA)

POSTED: Friday, May 01, 2015

This pattern that you speak of is due to an option that Deal Dash offers called "Bid Buddy". Bid Buddy was incorporated for two reason. First reason is so that users can set a pre determined ammount of bids and go on about their business. It allows them to bid hands free.

Bid Buddy is also the reason for the patterns that you see toward the end of an auction. After all manual bidders have left the auction Deal Dash's software is set up to rotate the Bid Buddy users in the order in which they placed their bids. While Bid Buddy is a nice covenience, unless you intend to BIN "Buy It Now", there is always a great chance that you will run out of bids before the auction is over.

That is the reason for BIN. If you place the correct amount of bids, (The $$ amount in bids that the item is worth, minus the final sales price) Deal Dash allows you to pay the full asking price and they return all of the bids that you used in that auction.

As far as the "No Jumper" auctions go, the rule is that if you have not placed a bid before the auction reaches $5.00, you can no longer bid on that item. This makes it fair for those users who have been in the auction from the beginning. However, Deal Dash occaisonally will lower the threshold to say $3.00, thereby creating more excitement and buzz. This will also better the odds of users who have been in the action from the beginning.

This is also the reason you see biddes seem to appear out of nowhere. Since, if anyone places even a singe bid before the auction reaches the $5.00 No Jumper limit, they/you can rejoin that auction at any given time. This can be a good strategy but you run the risk of the auction being over by the time you get back to it, making the odds fair for everyoe concerned.

The only real problems with Deal Dash is that they have been around for years and have accumulated millions of users. Some of those users have been in Deal dash since the beginning and have won many bid packs, making their bid cost next to nothing.

Some of those users are quite vindictive in that they bid well over the actual price of an item, thereby making it impossible for a new user with low funds to win anything. In many cases, those users had the same thing happen to them and aquired many losses berfore getting themselves in a position where they could bid without the fear of losing.

So all they have to do to get a return is to sell the item on Ebay, Craigs List, etc. and use that money to buy more bids. There are many other strategies to make you a long term winner but there is a learning curve and it is quite possible to go broke before you win unless you ask questions.

I actually won a $120.00 vaccume for a little over $8.00 and a $30.00 grill for $3.00 but the best way to learn when you're starting out is to bid on items that you need to purchase any way BIN (Buy It Now) as explained above. Then once your items equal bids spent minus final sales price, you'll still have all of your original bids and you can then bid fear free...

Hope this helps....

Bait and Switch DealDash

AUTHOR: starbucks107 - ()

POSTED: Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Concure with the Bots. The focus seems to ID new or Newer Bidders suchas Me. I spent the same amount $63 and purchased over 600 Bids (Losses I call them). I didn't take that into consideration. As a TEST I focused on 3 items.That were priced Low, Medium, and Higher (for this web site) This [0] identifies how many Bids I purchased. You can (Auto

  1. $17 Box of Tide Soap (Tablet-type pouches) [10 Bids purchased]
  2. $234 Sonic Toothbrush (I don't KNOW how a Toothbrush can cost THAT MUCH!) [48 Bids Purchased]
  3. $800 Amazon Gift Card [600+Bids purchased]

OK, the first thing I noticed is that the first two items were Bidded on and Closed almost immediately! The Box of Tide sold for $2.37, Yet, had a "Closed for New Bidders" posted across it! HUH? The baseline amount is $5.00. Then the item closes for New Bidders. So DealDash is Busted on that One!

Next the $234 Toothbrush (From God). Who in their Right Mind is going to purchase a $234 Tootbrush? Well, someone did for $6.37! Now wait a minute, I placed 48 bids plus I personally entered 10 more! Yet this item went for $24.06. And this "Closed" for all bidders Very Fast! I couldn't even add more bids and yet Gone!

Now on to the Real Busted fact! The Amazon Gift Card for $800. OK, the History of past purchases "Changed" at least three different times I noticed prices ranged from $24 to $739 dollars for a winner. At one time I noticed that a person purchased a $250 Gift card for $259! Say What? After repeated attempts DealDash awards you chump change Bids for being in 1st place. So overall I "won" 22 Bids. I entered thosed along with 270 Bids at 2 am and went to bed. I woke up (expecting to win) Only to find the Bids are still going, I have No Bids Left, and NOW there are 5-6 people (I've NEVER seen bidding) who have all of sudden started to bid!

What is going on here? Well the Bots is DEFINITELY one issue. But more simply it is "Bait and Switch" DealDash Baits you with alleged wins (If you bid carefully). But how can they explain one item that retails for $250 going for less than $7 and Yet this Amazon Card is still going for what I see as the Longest Bidding EVER! Longest bidding being a time frame of over 18 hours, new bidders "starting to bid", and yet no end in site! See if One Bids one time under $5 dollar ceiling that DealDash states is the limit to enter the bidding. They are allowed to bid later on, lets say if the item is over $50.

Conclusion...This is a very Nefarious operationj going on here and I warn all of those to even think they can win to Not Even Try! The old saying "If it is to Good to be True" Holds on this Place. There is a definte Pattern going on here and I agree with the original reporting person! Thank You very Much Ripoff Report!

AVOID DEALDASH AT ALL COSTS! Buyers Beware this is a Rip-Off

Bid buddy

AUTHOR: greenggoose - ()

POSTED: Tuesday, July 23, 2013

You can do it too.  Just use the bidbuddy.  It is available to all bidders on the auction screen.  I just started using Deal dash and have found the bid buddy a convenient way to walk away.  

To use it, click on the title of the item you are bidding on and it will take you into the auction page.  Under BID NOW button, you will find the bid buddy bar.

Hope this helps!

Fulfilled by LG Electronics HDTV from other quality products!!!

AUTHOR: elsia - ()

POSTED: Friday, July 05, 2013

Magical  world filled with colors, surprised about my description???? Am speaking about the LG Electronics 60PH6700 60-inch Active Plasma HDTV with smart TV.

Why is it magical?  Why does it make me surprised? Here goes the reason..

The quality of the image setting is  Eco –friendly, that is the default and so the color of the image is slightly darken than usual. By comparing  this product with Samsung and Sony it looks too simple in its cost and has an excellent picture quality. It is easy to setup LG  Electronics HDTV,  we don’t need a professional. The quality of the picture is fantastic it depends on the usage of the blue ray which we are using. The good aspect in LG Electronics HDTV is we can enjoy the movie with hyper reality which makes us to feel that we are in theatre.

The special thing about LG Electronics HDTV is that it has the magical remote which is too simple and very responsive. It acts as like a sort of WiFi remote where you wave to different side and the cursor will appear on the screen so we can easily navigate. It works up to 15 feet from the TV. The remote also has a 3D button, Smart TV button. Moreover by the cost basis the LG Electronics HDTV is quite simple and lower in the aspect of cost.

We can add many channels like Hulu, Netfix, and all other different channels. Simply nowadays this product helps me to use Skype and I can do google search and many more. I love to use Facebook with this product because of its large display. LG Electronics sounds good for its sound, color, action, and it is more easy to use. Earlier,I was using an old model television before using this product.

After getting connected with this LG product am really surprised about accessing and the usage of this product. It is to be quoted that apart from all the other HDTV’s, LG is really good for its image and sound quality which satisfy the user under the boundary of budget. The display quality depends on the input which is given to the product . Seems quite magical when I get to know the features that it consistently offers.Its very interesting when I get to work with it.

According to the settings available in LG Electronics HDTV the varieties of display themes can be changed which is all about the user's choice. After buying this product it’s feeling great to enjoy the films which I love the most just by accessing the USB. There are many things which I myself have to experience.

Hoping a lot in  getting good experience.!!!!

Surprised by U’r humor! Soon you gonna get back your “word” about CANON!!!

AUTHOR: mhenze - ()

POSTED: Monday, June 24, 2013

Marketing Engineer???? That too for the ever “BEST” Canon?You gotta be kidding Mr.Sigma!!!Seems like u have not even dealt with my point.What ever you say, when u speak more about sigma, it proves to be skeptical.

You had posted many questions out which was the most funniest is – “Hey what seems to be droll”?Features provided by canon are just outstanding.And Mr.Tom I don’t have to market this wonderful product! It needs no marketing or stuffs and moreover you just use up Canon once and then speak more!

Just put forward a step to use that lens, I am sure you will stick to it.It’s not that I serve as a “Marketing Executive” for the lens “canon”, it’s the courtesy of sharing a well known information with you !!!!!Knowing the passion you have towards photography, I suggested you the BEST Canon, it’s upto you that YOU take it or not, Mr.Sigma!!!!

Hey man! You don’t need to laugh at the seasonal things, coz canon produces many more varieties which are marvellous.It does not provide any such fake stuffs altogether!You may point out an example of one professional who has quoted about your branded lens.But if I start posting all the good reviews that Canon possess then it would be “Loss of time”!

Plenty of reviews are down the lane so have a look on that too.You seem to mock at Canon a lot,unfortunately u r totally wrong gentleman!Crazy guy!Are you aware of what’s happening in and around?

Mr.Sigma,It’s really funny to debate with this point for me, coz I have no doubt that my side is quite strong!I would get exhausted involving into it!Just wake up and know what exactly am talking about and do reply on it!!!!!

Waiting for your surrender Mr.Tom!!!!!

Hey Canon!!!! U’ve got a Better Marketing Engineer… But overall comical… Ha ha ha!!!!

AUTHOR: Tom mary - ()

POSTED: Thursday, June 20, 2013


Again U`re fixing to the spot that advertising the Canon lens. And Man, what u extracted as additional benefit is actually a true on brand but it's not for the particular, i.e., Canon 70-200 mm Telephoto Zoom Lens. Best Photography Freaks?? What the Freak thing u`re experiencing in that Canon lens on that specification, Moreover Does it strikes to be the BEST?? Seems droll!

And as well in ur outlook, I can't stop laughing, that this Canon lens is weather sealing.

Image stabilization is concerned  with a stop enlarged, however even the Modern Canon cameras  with the lofty ISO potentials that sets a stop amplified would balance this variance at the feasible expense of bigger noise.

And, A professional quote that

“Even if a fresh model were to test one pair number higher [better] than the L I, [a possible manufacturing variation] the improvement would probably not be detectable by viewing a 300 PPI printed version at “normal viewing distance”, so I chose not to test another sample. For my purpose, primarily fine art photography, my results simply do not justify the price”. So the advice is to test carefully before committing to an L II purchase; reality vs. your expectations may vary, He adds to the point.

And Randy, I hope U couldn`t be be aware of all such Professional tactics, Still I made it for listeners, who views at ur fake stuffs.  Gentleman, You Gotto know Better!!

The canon lens which you preferred `ve the difficulties in finding a major problem in scaling better image with dim lights.

U `ve ever sensed about Sigma??? I think, You came across just canon in your life!!!! Ha ha !!! And while comparing Sigma with Canon., Canon is too much more sensitive in backlights than the Sigma, Additional difficulties of the canon that has limitations also with the outer shell, too Big and heavy.  At last differentiating the product`s worth, Canon is utilizing its brand name for a minimal quality product.

And what the real stuff that got in Interchangeable Lens??? Even the cameras with 16-50mm PZ lens have this quality. U`ve invested ur dollars for such feature??? Crazy!!!!! U might be getting it for $500, with camera Mr.Randy….!!!

A benefits of User friendly to canon lens is appreciation if it has featured. But waking u up from ur bed!!!! It’s a virtual imagination u dreamt, and no one ever thinks of that in this product. Take a review of the product in the wiki, the major disadvantage of the product is, “makes the user prone to accidental flipping”.

Again ;) !!

Hai  Tom…

Canon serves with interchangeable lens and provides us with a better clarity. An added advantage is that canon serves as the “BEST” among photography freaks! It’s mainly due to the natural outcome of the photos which canon gives us.

And for you Mr. Tom , with the interchangeable lens provided by canon we can use them even during dim lights. In fact you gotta know that it provides faster and excellent focusing! Sigma is instantaneous but in my opinion, I would like to say Canon lens is quite essential for any digital photographer.

All is fine but it’s not user friendly man! It has not supported every individual with their constraints. Moreover it won’t be available for professional photographers. May be it serves well for public usage but not for the output of better photography!

My hearty recommendation would be canon!Are you willing to produce a quality photography then with no second thoughts just move to canon.

Jokes apart Randy!!!Real stuffs revealed......

AUTHOR: Tom m - ()

POSTED: Wednesday, June 19, 2013

Hi Randy….

Pretty amazed  at your view on canon telephoto zoom lens and also it sounds you are advertising the product. Hey man!! I would like to suggest you a factual things about the canon lens that you preferred. Actually it’s the lens that made for the snaps that are made in the day hours and can't during the dim lights. Even the canon Lens which was used before, offered us with good performance, also built better.

Additionally I would say “Naaa..” for faster performance. To be technical, shutter speed is thus poor with canon. Am extracting that, Its not the slightest lens, But it’s not the lens for the greater performance with this specification.  Moreover I would like to provide you a better alternative product that would be “Sigma APO 70-200mm”.

If you are extending your focal length, then you ought to stain an important quote on IS. It’s an attractive feature you could experience when camera extends. 

As a final point, Canon lens 70-200mm, It’s the fine lens, but why they desire this, for specialized and immense performance???

Have fun with Canon,its interesting.

AUTHOR: randy - ()

POSTED: Tuesday, June 18, 2013

While I was surfing through my mobile I came to know about this site where I can play and win. I involved in the play after seeing something good about that, I aimed at Canon 70-200 mm Telephoto Zoom Lens .And I won that also, which is really awesome for its image stabilization, which is more important for the pixel clarity .While am using the canon for the first time I was not clear about focusing by those lenses. But the Auto Focus option favored me to make the picture better .Actually the first thing I want to say you is that this telephoto zoom lens has excellent lens elements which makes me to take more snaps, nowadays am not afraid of the climate, because canon telephoto lens  posses the feature of being compatible with all the seasons that is , canon is weather sealing and there the quality of canon stands. The advancement in this product is that it has the dedicated electric motor and there is an electrical contact between the lens and the camera which makes me easier to fix. For a professional photographer it will be good when it is easier to position the angle. And that is available in canon. It is beneficial for its less weight. It has the ultrasonic motor which makes the autofocus to be started in a quick manner and also it will be more accurate in its image quality. The effects in the canon work in the strategy where the lightings are lower too. The lens which I won belongs to the version F/4 non-IS which is standing unique for its less weight. This makes my interest to grow more in taking many professional photos and that too works out. I thought that while taking snaps in the area where the lens can be affected by dust then the lens would be damaged permanently. Then I came to know about the dust reduction methodology which is applied in this model makes my canon telephoto lens to be on safer side. This provides long life for the lens. And thus the product does not have any problem as interrupts in working. All over I can say I love my canon. I thank them for providing me the product which wholly mean towards the quality.

I think when the stage of losing is reaching people started creating ripoffreport. That is too foolish. It is very simple tactics to be followed while involving in this. And that too was given in that site. I used those tactics and I won a 600bid pack. There is nothing to be cheated here. It is just that the user has to observe keenly the play so that he can find out the competitor who is going to be involved next. And really it is just like a game and no other automated bots are involved in this site. The video posted is just a fake and the product  which  I won satisfy  in all aspects. The pack which I won can  be used later to buy many products in the next playing field. They assure the date of delivery and their guarantee about the product is also specified .  So  far there are no complaints about this site from my side. It works accordingly to the fulfillment  of the customer and  it guided me from the startup in a well defined way. So finally  it is a simple logic of involvement and   just that the interest. No matter of cheating , it is just trustful in all aspects.

error on my last rebuttle and no way to change in

AUTHOR: nancy - ()

POSTED: Wednesday, March 27, 2013

I was talking about Bid buddy and when you have to many bids in for the cost of the gift card,  You can  win it , but  you do NOT get the bids left in your bid buddy back. You loose that amount of money those bids cost

If you do a buy it now instead when the auction is over. You pay the amount of the gift card, not the amount it went for when it was over, but you do get all the bids back that you had put in for that

auction then.  So a $25 gift card as example, you pay 25 for  and if you had   205 bids put in when the auction was over those 205 bids will  be put back into your bids that you have when you pay for the gift card on buy it now.  Hope that makes sense

Again if you WIN  you pay the amount that the bids were at  like  $9.50  but you do not get any bids back then on a win..

Again beware, dont over bidthe price of the item unless you intend to over bid  a lot and have  many bids in that auction so when you dont win you can still do a buy it now and get enough bids back to pay for it like a $10 item and even more bids  then it cost . Your up bids then not down.

rebuttles here are not timely

AUTHOR: nancy - ()

POSTED: Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Some of the rebutles  are way past the time the complaints were written so are not valid. Somethings have changed but not when the complaints were written

How can Renee say that if you win a auction you can pay for it and your extra bids in bid buddy will be returned?? That has  NEVER been true. You pay but you loose the bids inyour bid buddy.  Thats whyyou have to calculate how many bids you put in and when you have more money in bids then the item is worth you stop bidding adn then just do a buy it now , but remember you loose all the money you paid for the bids, so dont bid a lot .

the bid now buttonhas been a recent problem Iv witten to DD about and has not been resolved.  Some times ihave to hit it  2 or 3 times for it to work and some tiems it never works anyway.

Gift cards are coming fast at this time  March. but Im waiting for about 5 items and when I wrote to DD they said they would try another outlet for the items so Im still waiting and again this is March not last  Nov or Dec

So be sure when you write here your writting in the same time frame as the complaint !!!!

DealDash is not a ripoff!

AUTHOR: Renee - ()

POSTED: Tuesday, March 26, 2013

I have been a customer of DealDash since September of 2012.  I have won over 150 auctions that were both merchandise and gift cards. 

I have received every item I have ever won.  DealDash is pretty much an online gambling site to win items instead of money.  With knowing this, you win some and you lose some.  I have paid pennies for some items and overpaid on some items. 

Consumers get angry when they spend money and don't win the item, however DealDash allows you to purchase the item you were bidding on and you get your bids back. 

I feel that they are and honest and fair bidding website.  The only reason I decided to respond to this complaint is because I did not feel that the complaint was true.

DealDash has never ripped me off in any way shape or form.  During Christmas time 2012, they were overwhelmed with winners.  I had won a waffle iron and bought one.  I contacted customer service, and they took care of the problem right away. 

Customer service used to be a little tricky to get a hold of, but they hired more people to handle the site.

With every item that you either have won or bought, the provide with tracking numbers for UPS or FedEx items, and if it is a gift card they notify you when it was shipped by date.

Again, I have no complaints about DealDash what so ever. 

DealDash has a BidBuddy system.  You have the option of bidding ahead of time for the item and not losing your place, or if you don't want to sit at the computer as the auction takes place.  Yes, you can tell who the next person will bid next because they have set up their BidBuddy too.  If you win the item before all your bids have been used, you win the item and the extra bids are returned to you. 

I do not think the person who wrote the complaint understood the way DealDash works.

DealDash works for me.

AUTHOR: Incognito - (United States of America)

POSTED: Thursday, January 17, 2013

I have been a "DealDasher" for about 4 months or so now.
I have won maybe 30 or so items in the $10 to $400 value range.
Of course the website has some issues at times, it's a website, it happens...
I have never lost any bids due to server malfunction. Only to my own inexperienced bidding...
When I have had concerns with delayed delivery of my items, customer support was quick to address them.
When an item I won was out of stock they were very quick with either a replacement item or a generous amount of bids.
At first I lost more money on bids than I won in items but that was due to my own lack of research, experience and knowledge of the bidbuddy and how it works. I quickly learned and now always win more than I spend.
I think the most important thing to learn or know going into this is that in a sense, it IS gambling. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.
I love dealdash and will continue to use it.

I have also been ripped off by DEALDASH, i have spent more than $1000.00 for Christmas gifts, my kids had nothing under the tree because I didn't receive my items,

I started back the end of Oct and still have not received stuff. I didn't have money to go and buy other items

You send emails to customer service and they come back to you and say they don't have a ship date but should be shipped soon

They also sell more than they have and they tell you sorry we are out of this item, and rip you off and don't replace it with something you really want

I have had the same problem with dealdash as was reported here.  I began months  ago to bid only on things for Christmas gifts.  that way if I dont win the auction I just try & buy the item & recycle all my bids.  I have received most of the Gas Gift Cards but the actual products (seven to 8 items) have not yet come to the tune of close to $1,000.00 worth.

  When I go to "dashboard" to "view" about the items that say "shipped"  weeks ago, it tells me to contact customer service.  The only way they allow you to do so is by email.  I have done so continuosly as Christmas is close & am assured I'll get reply w/in 48 hrs.
I haven't yet received any replies.

I'm on disability & cannot afford to lose those things that are paid for gifts.  Do I have any recourse at all?  Most things state delivery of end of November 2012?  It is now Dec. 6th & nothing.  If DD turns out to be a real scam then I'm stuck with over 2000 bids from "buy it not option".

Trudy, I still havnt heard from DD.  I have sent new complaints also on the same issue and sent all the data they needed to look at the screen and even have a screen shot They dont want to deal with this problem.

IT is still happening too.   Freinds who use DD have complained to me and I have given them the address to Ripoff to complain here, not to me

Bidbuddies automatically disappear

AUTHOR: Trudy - (United States of America)

POSTED: Thursday, November 15, 2012

I agree with Nancy.  I tried DealDash for the first time and was excited.  After using up my initial bids, I saw a pattern and was figuering out how the auction worked.  I bought more bids.  I was using the BidBuddies system.  When I went to another section of the auction site and returned to my dashboard ALL of my BidBuddies bids had been erase.  One auction I was bidding on still had 50 bids in the bidbuddies system when they disappeared.  Total RIPOFF.  Still waiting for a response from DealDash.  Buyer Beware!

DealDash doesnt read rebuttles

AUTHOR: nancy - (United States of America)

POSTED: Friday, October 26, 2012

Apparently DealDash just sends out forum letters. They come back to my rebuttal and say that IF I knew about DealDash and how to play Iwould know bidbuddy.

I said I use bidbudy my friends. If you read things and the many messages Iv sent  to your consumer site you would see that as things were happening I talked about  bid buddys and not being able to see howmany bids Ihad left .  I had to put more bids in all the time so get that to work and see how many bids Ihad left,

I had bid buddy on and still lost the  item Maybe Deal Dash can read this 2nd  rebeuttal from me

Maybe they will answer some of my messages sent while all this was going on and I was trying to use th site the right way.  Iv used it, Iv won things already. The site was not working right. I stated all that in my messages to them. I stated that in my rebuttal

Now I will write my own complant here in   Ripoff I tryed to just rebuttal and get some where with deal dash but its not working

#2 UPDATE Employee

The BidBuddy

AUTHOR: DealDash - (USA)

POSTED: Friday, October 26, 2012

If you are familiar with DealDash and how it works than you know that on DealDash, Bidders have an option to use what is known as the "BidBuddy". This is one of the most popular features of the site and the bidders love to use it. 

The BidBuddy can assist bidders in being able to bid in an auction, even if the bidders are not online at that time or when they can't be on the computer. The BidBuddy automatically submits bids according to the specifications set in advance by the user and is a safe way to make sure one does not lose an auction if distracted for any reason. If several bidders have bids on their BidBuddies, theyll take turns placing bids until the bids from all but one BidBuddy run out. 

Read about how the BidBuddy operates in the FAQ section on DealDash.com

If you have any other concerns please contact DealDash support for assistance. DealDash is the longest operating online auction site of its kind in the United States and has over 800,000+ registered American customers. 

Additionally, DealDash has a 100% money back guarantee on everyone's first purchase - no questions asked. It has been confirmed your first purchase has already been refunded back to you in full.

I agree with deal dash being a ripoff

AUTHOR: nancy - (United States of America)

POSTED: Thursday, October 25, 2012

Ive played on dealdash and won some gift cards and two items    I have not gotten one gift card in the mail and i was told that a batch went out after the date due to me   oct18   Still nothing in the mail

one item I did recieve today that I won after winning  gift cards  the 2nd item has not come yet

tonight was the night that did it for me on deal dash  .l  Bidding for ear rings, the page malfunctioned so many times.  It ate up my bids,  said I had  0 bids  left

My bid buddy had plenty of bids but  on and off it  showed no bids in  "bid now"

Id add bids to bid buddy at times  when it said I had none  but  it could not have used the ones that Ihad see in there seconds ago  

It kept changeing  the amt of bids   that  I had in  "my bids"  that I had and I even bought more and it kept changeing the amount I had .  At times it said I had 0  bids

many more things  happened

I had a investment and tryed to keep things going on the bidding item

I had many bids in my bid buddy,  I had just added some   

All if a sudden  it said    congratulations    "to some one else"

Aftr all I went thru    I lost  

I used  a large amout of bids on bid buddy  so when I had to go to the bathroom  I didnt have to worry about watching the board       I was sitting at the pc  when this winner  came up

I have written to  dealdash  4 or 5 times tonight during all of this and gave them  my  phone #

and my cell phone #   no replys yet

Iwill add to this if  I hear from them to tell you the outcome
