Survive the Holiday Rush on DealDash

It’s no secret that at this time of the year DealDash is hopping with bidders all looking to score the best deals anywhere. It’s sort of like shopping at any major retailer the week leading up to Christmas as shoppers are looking to get their last-minute shopping in. Sometimes this can be frustrating with increased competition. Here are some tips to stay sane and still have fun on DealDash:

 

  1. Take advantage of bid packs on sale

DealDash is offering some of the lowest prices of the year on bid packs this time of year because they know there are more bidders online. Even if you’re not going to bid while it’s crazy out there, take advantage of the rock-bottom prices on bid packs an stash them away for another day.

 

  1. Change up your strategy

Are you one of those folks who bids the same way every time? Maybe you bid from the get-go early on and stay the course or drop out after a certain number of bids. Maybe you’re a mid-auction bidder, watch a bit and then jump in when the bidders thin out a bit. Or maybe you’re a dreaded last-minute jumper who waits until there are just a few bidders left to place your first bid. Whichever type of bidder you normally are, try changing up your strategy and see what happens. This was a very difficult thing for me to do at first (I was a bid from the start gal) but after a bit, I got the hang of trying and winning with a different strategy.

 

  1. Try a day and time that is not normal for you

My philosophy is that if I am free and able to commit myself to a few hours of bidding (maybe it’s a weekend or weeknight), then others will likely be available to do the same. Trying an odd day or time for you might just net some unexpected benefits.

 

  1. Log in daily for free bids

Even if you’re not planning to bid during the holiday rush season on DealDash, don’t let that stop you from logging in daily to place at least one bid per day to earn up to 30 free bids each day. Putting these bids away to save in your bid bank is a great way to look forward to when you do bid on an item you want!

 

  1. The best advice on DealDash

The best piece of advice I ever received never gets old. I read it on another bidder’s bio and it read, “Don’t worry—there’s another auction for this item just around the corner!”  That little piece of sage advice has gotten me through a lot of tough bidding days. Some days you win, some days you don’t. But one thing still remains true—the item you want will be offered up again in another DealDash auction soon. So don’t lose heart—keep trying to win the items you want!

 

  1. The holiday shopping rush will be over soon

The great thing about the stress of holiday shopping is that it doesn’t last long. The rush is literally a month from start to finish. Things will soon die down and you’ll be able to get back to bidding and winning with a little less competition.

 

We all love the holidays and but bidding on DealDash during the holiday season can sometimes be daunting. But take heart and know that when you do get back to bidding, DealDash will be right there where you left off—adding new items and giving bidders great deals every day.

 

Happy holidays and happy bidding on DealDash and happy holidays!

DealDash Top Tips Round-Up 11/29

DealDash

Welcome to DealDash’s Weekly Top Tip Round-Up. This time we are going to round up some of the top tips for you from last week. Read on for more information from DealDash.

Welcome to the DealDash Top Tip Round-Up series. All of the bloggers here at the DealDash Tips Blog love to share all of our tips with you. In this series, we always highlight the most helpful tips from the previous week. We love to share our knowledge with all of the new DealDash bidders on DealDash. Read on for a recap of the best tips from last week.

Don’t Bid Tired from the November 20th Blog

The theme of November 20th’s blog was some “tried and true” tips that we always recommend here at DealDash Tips. The top tip from that blog was to skip bidding when you are too tired. The advice suggested to either wait til the next auction comes around, or use your BidBuddy and let him do all of the work for you. When you’re tired you can make some bad decisions that you wouldn’t normally make. Just wait for the next auction to come around, or if it’s something that you need right away then let BidBuddy help you out.

 

Conserving Bids from the November 21st Blog

November 21st’s blog was all about suggestions how you can stretch your DealDash bids. Barbara was the author of that article, and she has been bidding on DealDash for quite some time. Here’s one of her great suggestions to stretch your bids:

If the auction usually closes at $15.00 and it is now at $13.00 you might be able to let the last two players go head-to-head until it reaches $14.00. Then they will have each used up 50 more bids than you, and that could make a winning difference. -Barbara

If you want to conserve your DealDash bids, then you should heed her advice.

 

Installing the DealDash App from the November 22nd Blog

The blog on November 22nd was some tips and ideas on getting some Thanksgiving wins. The best and most useful tip on that article was to install the DealDash app on your phone. You don’t have to choose between your family get-togethers and DealDash when you have the app installed on your phone. From that blog:

If you don’t have the app yet, you can download it at this link right here. Not only is it a different fun and exciting way to bid on DealDash, it’s also free. -Dawn

The DealDash app is such a time-saver and if you didn’t download it for your Thanksgiving festivities then you should definitely get it before Christmas. Here’s the link in case you missed it – link.

Free Shipping from the November 24th Blog

November 24th’s blog was comprised of tips relating to Black Friday. The most helpful thing to know from that blog was that DealDash offers free shipping on every single item. Read more below:

Not only is the shipping free on DealDash, it’s also fast! Since DealDash has fast shipping, so you can still win or BIN (Buy It Now) auctions and order them in time for Christmas. -Dawn

Knowing that you don’t have to factor in a shipping cost on items that you win or BIN from DealDash can make life easier for you. Keep in it mind for any auctions that you enter.

Common Mistakes Newbies Make on DealDash

By Barbara

If you are new to DealDash.com chances are that you will make some of the five most common mistakes that Newbies often make.

The five most common mistakes that I have identified are:

  1. Choosing an intimidating screen name or bio message with the intent to scare off the other competitors. This is against DealDash guidelines and having an intimidating screen name will not help you win more auctions.
  2. Playing before reading, watching and learning. Many Newbies start placing bids before they know how to play and they irritate other shoppers by cutting the clock and bidding out of turn.
  3. Casting single bids from the home page. Newbies usually do this because they have not yet learned how to double click on the auctions so they can open a new window, where they can find and use BidBuddy, the automated bidder.
  4. Bidding in too many auctions at the same time. Most Newbies are better off bidding in one auction at a time. Then, if you do not win, you only have to purchase that one item to get all your bids back. If you bid in several auctions, you would have to purchase several auction products to get all your bids back.
  5. Overbidding the retail value of the auction product.
  6. Not making a budget. It is important to do the math, set spending limits and sticking to those limits.

Smart shoppers will avoid making the most common mistakes by reading blogs and educating themselves before they begin to play.

Don’t Do These Bad DealDash Tips

DealDash

Sharing good tips here on DealDashTips.com is what we do. However, sometimes knowing the wrong thing to do can be helpful so you can avoid it. Read on for more information.

Good tips, bad tips, helpful tips, and not so helpful tips – these are all important things to think about when you are bidding on DealDash. We always try to give you the best tips and advice here on the DD Tips blog, but it can be very helpful to know the wrong things to do as well. This way you can avoid falling into bad bidding habits. Read on for more information, from DealDash.

Don’t Be Reckless With Your Bids

Buying or winning a big bid pack can be an amazing feeling. Unfortunately, sometimes when we have so many bids at our disposal we can become a little reckless with our bids. For example, if you only have 100 bids in your bid bank you are probably going to try and conserve them. Just sprinkling a few bids here and there on various items, or using all 100 on an auction that you’re planning on doing a BIN (Buy It Now) on.

However, if you win or buy a giant 2,000+ bid pack, then I bet you are going to be way more generous with your bids than you usually would be. Sure, maybe you will win a few extra auctions by bidding on things you wouldn’t normally bid on, but you will probably lose your fair share, as well. It’s always smart to try and conserve your bids for a rainy day. Be cognizant of what you are spending your bids on, and don’t bid recklessly.

Don’t Forget to Bid Every Day (For Free Bids)

Another thing that you want to avoid is forgetting to stop by DealDash every day and placing at least a couple of bids. That’s right – every single day that you come to DealDash and place a bid they will give you free bids. The trick to getting these free bids is to be sure that you don’t skip any days bidding on DealDash. You have to visit on consecutive days to get the free bids. DealDash will give you free bids every day starting with 4 and continuing on to 6, 8, 10, 14, 20, then 30 free bids! You will continue to receive 30 free bids every consecutive day that you come and place a bid. This is an amazing bonus, but you can’t get it unless you come every day.

Thanks for Reading the Tips Blog

These are just a couple of the things that you will want to avoid doing on DealDash. I hope this article has encouraged you to think closely about what you’re doing on DealDash. Go ahead check out the auctions on DealDash. Visit DealDash now to see what’s up for bid. DealDash has everything you want and need. Have fun on DealDash, and happy bidding everyone!

Tips to Stay on Your DealDash Budget

DealDashAre you having trouble budgeting? Here are some tips from DealDash.

Did you do a lot of Black Friday shopping this year? Did you accidentally blow your holiday budget? If so, never fear, DealDash Tips is here to help you get back on track and work on your spending. There’s no need to give up fun things like entertainment shopping on DealDash if you follow these tips. Read on for more information, from DealDash.

Only Buy Bids on Sale

STOP! Don’t buy those bids yet until you have decided if they are the best price you’ll be able to get. If you are in desperate need of some bids, just buy a few, as in the smallest bid pack. However, if the bid prices are good, such as .13, .14, or .15 then buy away! Buy the largest number of bids that will work with your DealDash budget when you see the bid prices sink.

Search for Needed Items

If you’re shopping at other stores, either online or in-store for a specific item you should check out DealDash first. DealDash has many different items that you probably buy on a regular basis such as items for your home and toys for your kids. Why would you bother shopping elsewhere when DealDash has it for you?
The next time you are shopping for a specific item, be sure to do a search on DealDash first. You might be pleasantly surprised and be able to snag an awesome deal on the exact item that you were prepared to pay for price for elsewhere.

Ask for DealDash Bids for Christmas

The holiday season is upon us, and if there’s someone in your life that would like to get you a present…Ask for DealDash! If someone asks you what you would like as a present this year, tell them that you’d like a DealDash bid pack! It’s the perfect solution if you can’t think of something specific that you’d like as a gift. And it could end up being the gift that keeps giving if you end up winning some great items that are up for bid.

Yes, DealDash might lose money by shipping out items that are won for very low amounts but rest assured, no matter what the final auction fee is, it will be shipped for free.

Add or Cancel Bids On DealDash

It is extremely easy to add bids or cancel bids at any point during the auctions on the DealDash.com shopping site, but sometimes it’s difficult to know which one to do.

Should we add more bids and go for the win or should we cancel our bids and save them to use on another auction later on?

Since I started shopping on DealDash Feb. 8, 2012, I faced this dilemma many times. Sometimes an auction closed right after I canceled my bids and sometimes I added more bids when the auction did not close for a long time.

Now, after winning 739 auctions, I’m getting better at knowing when to add bids and when to cancel them. No matter how much experience we have, however, I doubt anyone gets it right all the time. Now when an auction gets down to the last three players, I’ve learned that it helps to ask the following questions:

  1. Are the players left in the game all serious bidders or are some of them simply random bidders? Sometimes I canceled my bids too early when I thought a third player jumped into the game. After placing only one or two bids, however, the third player dropped out. I learned that before canceling my bids, it is important to make sure the last three players in the game have any staying power.
  2. At what point in the auction did the last three players start placing bids? If they started bidding at the very beginning of the auction, they are more likely to run out of bids. If they placed their first bid just before the $5.00 lockout, they are less likely to run out of bids.
  3. What was the average closing price of this auction, and has the auction price reached or passed that amount yet?
  4. Is this a “Free to the winner” auction? Remember, free auctions tend to run longer because shoppers do not have to worry about paying the final closing cost.

Tips for Thanksgiving DealDash Wins

DealDash

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and DealDash might have a few tricks up their sleeve. Who wants to win Thanksgiving auctions?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! While I am enjoying my turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce tomorrow, I’ll also be keeping a close eye on DealDash. This is because DealDash often has great prices on bids on holidays, and not only that, they often have some amazing promotions as well. If you want to win some auctions on Thanksgiving you should read this article.

Install the DealDash App

Since you’re undoubtedly going to be busy with cooking and family tomorrow, then I highly suggest that you download and install the DealDash app. If you don’t have the app yet, you can download it at this link right here. Not only is it a different fun and exciting way to bid on DealDash, it’s also free. You don’t want to have to go hide yourself away in your office on your desktop computer, or drag your laptop out onto the dining room table next to the turkey! Just get the app. It makes life a lot easier. You can download it for any Android or Apple iOS device, all for free.

If you’re not yet convinced that the app is the way to go, look at all of the things that you can do right on your phone or iPad:

  • Browse and bid on all of the auctions on the main page
  • Open up individual auction pages
  • Do a search for an item
  • Look through the categories
  • Make your own avatar
  • Check your dashboard
  • See the auctions that you have won (or BINned)
  • Set BidBuddies
  • Bid on auctions
  • Set Alerts
  • Save favorites

Again, here is the link to download the free app.

The BidBuddy Doesn’t Eat Turkey

If you’re not planning on downloading the app, then you should definitely look ahead to the auctions tomorrow and set some BidBuddies. When you’re chowing down on turkey, the BidBuddy will be bidding for you. No matter what you’re doing, the BidBuddy will bid tirelessly until he runs out of bids. BidBuddy is your secret weapon in the auction.

Using the BidBuddy is important to maximize your wins, especially on holidays. If you aren’t using the BidBuddy, here’s how it works. BidBuddy is available to every bidder, free of charge, on every auction that you want to use it on. Open up and auction, and in the middle of the screen, you’ll see a space and a button that says “Book a Bid Buddy”. Just click on the space that says “add bids here” and put in the number of bids you’re willing to spend on this particular DealDash auction. Then hit enter. It’s that easy, and you’ll be winning more auctions on Thanksgiving than you thought that you would!
