DealDash is Risk-free
I tend to steer clear of penny auctions, including those on the venerable ebay, because it seems too much like gambling. If you lose the auction and have paid for bids, you lose more than just your time and the item.
Luckily the folks at DealDash agree.
On Deal Dash, if you lose the auction you have the option to buy an identical item for the normal fixed Buy it Now price (which is still less than retail), and get your bids back for free. The Buy it Now option makes DealDash the risk-free alternative to penny auction sites!
