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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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!
- 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!
