One per Customer

Have you noticed that some DealDash.com auctions have a yellow 1 at the top left corner of the listing?

I like auctions with the yellow 1 because this means that each shopper can only win one. After winning one, the winning bidder gets locked out from winning any more of that particular item.

By preventing all shoppers from winning more than one each of specific items, it gives other shoppers more room to win the auction, too. But not all auctions are the same. In some cases, we might see the same auction item, but only one will have the yellow 1, and many others will not.

For example, the Bolvaint Adelais Lambskin Moto Jacket — Women’s XL — Buy It Now price $3,400.00 now has the yellow 1. However, many other auctions with the exact same item do not. Therefore, shoppers can still win duplicate items whenever they are listed without a yellow 1.

Therefore, if we only want to bid in auctions where power bidders are now blocked from winning again, we must look for the ones with the yellow 1.

Some other high-dollar auctions that have the yellow 1, indicating one win per customer, are:

  • All of the brand new vehicles –truck, cars and jeep
  • Various hand-made Barrow Shack sculptures
  • Sony XBR75X900F 75-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV (2018 Model) and other similar items
  • Various large oil paintings from the Far East Collection
  • The 800 Bid Pack

More auctions also have the yellow 1, but I cannot list them all. I always look for the yellow 1 because these auctions give all DealDash shoppers a level field to win some high-dollar items.

Featured Special Events

Do you have a favorite featured “special event” when shopping on DealDash.com?

To keep its auctions fun and exciting, DealDash offers many different “special events” on a rotating basis.

Favorite Special Events

When shopping on DealDash, two of my favorite “special events” are:

  • 2X to 4X on the timer — By shopping on DealDash during this featured “special event” our green line (bottom right) moves to the right two to four times faster. Therefore, even if we do not win the auction, all is not lost because at least we will receive our free bid pack at the end much sooner.
  • 50 percent off to the winner — During this featured “special event” DealDash pays half of the tab of the final selling price, whatever it may be, when the auction closes. Therefore, winners of these auctions have to pay only half of the selling cost and the cost of the bids used to win the auction.

Consistency

Perhaps consistency is one of the most important things we need to win more auctions on DealDash.com.

If we consistently place bids in an auction, we will most likely eventually win it. To get a good idea how many bids it might take to win an auction, however, we should check to see how many bids previous winners placed in the same auction. Then, after we purchase our bids, we could try one of the following:

  1. Place all of our bids into BidBuddy, the automated bidder. Then consistently add more bids and never stop until we win. Unfortunately, some customers end up over-bidding the value of the auction and never stop even when it makes more sense to BIN.
  2. Place only some bids at the beginning into BidBuddy. Then only place more bids whenever the auction gets down to two or three players. This option could work well if we have the time to closely monitor the auction.
  3. Place some bids at the beginning, and continue to place another 10 bids for every dollar amount the auction price goes up. Rationing our bids to make them last longer could work, but we run the risk not having any bids there when the auction closes.
  4. Place some bids at the beginning of the auction and then wait until the auction reaches the average closing price before we add the rest of our bids. Adding several bids at the point where the auction usually closes could work.
  5. Place some bids at the beginning of the auction every time that particular auction is listed. If we look at the selling prices, we will see that most auctions will eventually sell low. If we consistently place bids at the beginning each and every time this item goes up for auction, we have a good chance of being there when it sells low. In other words, we might have a much better chance of winning an auction by placing 50 bids in the auction 12 times (every time it goes up for auction) than we would by placing all 600 bids or more in one auction.

If one method does not work, it might be time to try another. We all need to figure out for ourselves which system works best based on our own personal budget.

Winning Tips

No matter how long we have been shopping on DealDash.com, we can never learn too many winning tips.

Many times, winning auctions might just boil down to bidding in the right auction at the right time. Nonetheless, the more winning tips we know the better. One of the most important tips I could give to other shoppers would be to have patience.

Patience

When shopping on DealDash, we might do a lot better if we simply have patience.

When I have a difficult choice to make, I usually draw a line down the middle of a plain sheet of paper and place a header on each side — “Good” and “Bad.” Then I proceed to list the good things versus the bad things that could result from my decision. When I’m done with my list, I look at which side has the most positives or negatives. That usually makes my decision much easier.

We could approach DealDash auctions the same way, by listing the “good” things we know about an auction and the “bad” things we know about the auction. It might look something like this:

Good

  • All of the main power bidders have already won and are now blocked from competing in this auction.
  • On average, one out of every three times, this auction sells for less than $10.00.

Bad

  • One of the active bidders is listed on the “Winners’ List” and just won a $2,000 bid pack.
  • Two out of every three winners used more than 600 bids to win this auction.

If I look at this, I would choose to wait until this auction comes up again. To find out when this auction will come up again, all I have to do is put the name of the auction in the search bar at the top of the home page. Then I can check “Alert Me” so I can bid on it again the next time it goes up for auction.

Having a little patience could make a difference if we win an auction for $5.00 or $500.00.

Celebrating Wins

Do you remember how exciting it was the first time you won an auction on DealDash.com? I do, especially when I won a 55-inch TV.

I was celebrating my birthday on Feb. 23, 2012, at my house with friends. They wanted me to cut the cake, but I told them that first I wanted to check my bids on DealDash to see if I won anything yet. Just as I logged in, I saw that I won my first big-screen TV.

My friends started jumping up and down screaming in excitement, “We won!  We won! We won!” I said, “No, wait a minute. I won, not you. It’s my TV!” However, in a way, all my friends won, too. Up until then, we only had small, old-fashioned, big box TVs, so I started having Friday movie nights at my house.

Sharing With Friends

In these days of high-technology, most of us do not spend nearly enough face-to-face, in-person, time with our loved ones. Even when we go out to lunch in restaurants, many customers are ignoring the others at their table while they are busy on their cell phones.  The quality of the latest cells phones is good, but it is not good when our cell phones start taking away quality time with everyone who is near and dear to us.

Therefore, it would be a good idea for us to share some of our biggest DealDash wins with family and friends. The next time we have a big win on DealDash, we could use that as a good reason to get together to have a DealDash celebration party.

DealDash Party Ideas

Here are some party ideas on how we could celebrate:

  • Invite family and friends over for a potluck and to teach them how to play smart, so they could win products on DealDash, too.
  • Set up a display table showing off some of the many products we won on DealDash at bargain prices.
  • Provide snacks and game tables with some good, old-fashioned board games.

Daily DealDash Habits

Have you established some good daily shopping habits on DealDash.com? What do I mean and why is this important?

Free Rewards

It pays in more ways than one to establish good daily shopping habits.

First, by logging on to DealDash every day, we earn from two to 15 free bids per day. However, we must make sure we always log in at about the same time every day so we do not miss the 24-hour window.

When we first start opening DealDash on a daily basis, the number of free bids we earn increases each day until it reaches a maximum of 15 free bids. It will then remain at 15 free bids every day unless we miss logging in within that 24-hour window. Then it will start all over again.

I have such a crazy schedule, I might shop at midnight one day, at 8 a.m. another day or at 6 p.m. another day.  This is not a good idea. By not establishing better DealDash habits, I often miss that 24-hour window and lose the maximum number of daily free bids. The best way to solve this problem is to figure out the best time each day to shop on DealDash and then stick with it.  Perhaps a good time to log on to DealDash every day is while drinking our first cup of coffee every morning. Then if we see an auction that catches our eye, we can purchase our bids and plan a good shopping strategy.

New Auction Products

Second, by logging into DealDash at the same time every day, we will not miss out on our chance to see and bid on the latest new products. It appears to me that the first winner of new auctions often ends up winning it for less money than later auctions. Perhaps that is what happens when a hand full of customers manages to be “first in line.”
