Key words and phrases in this TV commercial and what they really mean:
- What the person in the commercial said: “I won this 55 inch TV for less than $30 on Dealdash.com”.. “I got this $1200 computer for $100.71.”
- What some people might think that means: If I use Dealdash I could get a big screen TV or an Apple computer for only a few dollars
- What it really means: What is not clear at this point in the TV commercial is that only the “winning price” of the bid is mentioned. What is not mentioned is that you must pay each time you bid on an item you must pay $0.60. So your actual cost will be the winning price plus 60 cents for every bid you made. Because bids increase by only one penny, it could take many “bids” to win an item
- What the TV commercial said: “On DealDash I got this $349 mixer for less than $25“
- What some people might think that means: I can save hundreds of dollars by using DealDash
- What it really means: As mentioned above, in addition to paying for your item you must also pay for every bid that you make. In fine print on the screen you can see the words “Roseanna Heffernan bid 761 times”. If each DealDash bid costs $0.60, then the total cost of the “mixer for less than $25” was $481 ($25 for the winning bid plus $456.60 for the 761 bids at $0.60 each).
- What the TV commercial said: If you don’t win get your money back
- What some people might think that means: If I don’t win my auctions I get all of my money back so I have nothing to lose
- What it really means: In very fine print on the screen the words “Applies to first purchase only”. This means you will only get your money for “bids” (sixty cents each) back on your first purchase
- What the lady on the commercial said: shipping is always free
- What some people might think that means: Shipping is free!
- What it really means: When you win an item on Dealdash, the shipping is free. There is no deception in this statement
Update September 2013:
The image below shows the number of bids by Melody Beattie and Barbara Sellers to win their items as shown in the commercial.
The DealDash.com TV commercial makes several claims and statements that would lead many people to believe they can win great name-brand products for pennies on the dollar, however it leaves out the fact that there are additional costs for purchasing bids. Many people may feel that this TV commercial is extremely deceptive because actual out of pocket costs for items can be much higher than stated, although shipping really is free.
