What Can We Do With 100 Bids?

What can we do with 100 bids when shopping on DealDash.com? We could probably do a lot more than we might think with that many bids?

Here is what we could do with 100 bids:

  • Place one bid each in 100 auctions
  • Place two bids each in 50 auctions
  • Place three bids each in 33 auctions
  • Place five bids each in 20 auctions
  • Place 10 bids each in 10 auctions
  • Place 25 bids each in four auctions
  • Place 50 bids each in two auctions
  • Place all 100 bids in one auction.

DealDash customers win auctions every day using only one or two bids. In just the last 24 hours here are just some of the auctions shoppers won using only one or two bids:

  • Women’s lambskin moto jacket (Buy It Now price $3,400) sold for only 9 cents, and the winner used 2 bids for a total estimated investment of 44 cents
  • Perfume (BIN $230) sold for only 2 cents, and the winner used 1 bid for a total estimated investment of 21 cents
  • Ring, size 6 (BIN $175), sold for 1 cent, and the winner used 1 bid for a total investment of 21 cents
  • King duvet (BIN $180) cover sold for 3 cents, and the winner used 1 bid for a total investment of 21 cents
  • Stainless steel saucepan with lid (BIN $650) sold for 39 cents, and the winner used 3 bids for a total investment of 79 cents.

If we placed one bid in 100 auctions or two bids in 50 auctions, we might have won some of the above awesome auction products. After all, becoming a winning shopper often depends on simply being in the right auction at the right time.

Flexible Shoppers

Are you a flexible shopper on DealDash.com?

What do I mean by that and why does it matter? Good questions.

When flexible shoppers open the DealDash home page, they are usually open to placing bids on anything that looks like it might close at a bargain price. Flexible shoppers may also end up winning more auctions for the following reasons:

  • They can choose to only bid in auctions with the fewest number of competitors.
  • They can choose to only bid in auctions that have no power bidders.
  • They can choose to only bid in auctions that show they are closing for the fewest number of bids and the lowest selling price.

Let’s look at a few examples:

A knitted pillow with a Buy It Now price of $109 closed on 12/2/2018 at only 18 cents and 5 bids; and again on 12/4/2018 it closed at 36 cents and 11 bids. When this auction reached the $5 “No New Bidders” mark, it only had 23 competitors, so it appeared to be an easy win.

A high-end quality pen set with a Buy It Now price of $360 closed on 12/7 for 9 cents and only 2 bids; and again on the same day for $1.73 and 15 bids. When this auction reached the $5 “No New Bidders” mark, it only had 33 competitors, so it appeared to be another easy win.

A beautiful, high-end blue and white silk necktie with a Buy It Now price of $280 closed on 12/2/2018 for only 22 cents and 6 bids; and on 12/5/2018 it closed for $2.42 and 32 bids. When this auction reached the $5 “No New Bidders” mark, it only had 16 competitors, so it also appeared to be an easy win.

Flexible bidders are free to choose the auctions they feel make sense bidding on. If you are a flexible shopper, go for it!

Elusive Win No More

I won! I won! I finally won the elusive lambskin moto jacket! Now it is elusive no more.

Did you ever want to win a particular product on DealDash.com that appeared to be like an elusive butterfly? Well this auction was my elusive butterfly.

No matter how often I tried and no matter how many bids I placed, it appeared that I would never win this lambskin moto jacket. I even placed as much as 2,114 bids in one auction and still did not win.

After investing a total of 4,400 bids 44 different times in the same auction (from Oct. 14 to Dec. 8) I finally won. The auction closed at $22.63 and this time I placed a total of 464 bids.

What made the winning difference? I can narrow it down to three things:

  • This auction was limited to only one per user and the power bidders already won it, so they were eliminated.
  • “No New Bidders” when the auction reached $3 were allowed. That left only 28 competitors, which might have been more if it closed to new bidders at $5 instead.
  • Consistency — I continued to bid every time this item came up for auction. The first time it closed early, I got busy and failed to add more bids or I might have won sooner.

Two lessons I learned from this bidding experiment are:

  • In my experience, it’s better to place 500 bids four times than 2,000 bids one time. If you do this, you might win sooner, and when you do win, the closing cost will be much lower.
  • It’s important to be consistent and not get distracted by other things.

If you do this, you might be able to catch your elusive butterfly. For me, the lambskin moto jacket was my elusive butterfly, but it is elusive no more!

Practical Vs Novelty Gifts

What type of gifts do you prefer to receive: practical or novelty? As a down-to-earth, practical kind of person I definitely prefer to receive practical gifts! Regardless of what kind of gifts we prefer, the good news is that we can find plenty of both on DealDash.com.

Practical Gifts

The best thing about receiving a practical gift is that we can usually be sure the person has not wasted their money because it will get plenty of use.

For example, some practical gifts I found on DealDash are:

  • Sheet sets, comforters, throws and towels. DealDash offers many auctions featuring these items.
  • Shoes, socks, purses and gloves are usually always very much appreciated. DealDash also offers plenty of auctions featuring these items.

Novelty Gifts

Some people prefer receiving novelty gifts because they see them as having a more personal touch. The only problem is that we must really know a person’s likes and dislikes well enough to get something they will really like.

For example, some novelty gifts I found on DealDash are:

  • Perfume, rings and earrings are lovely gifts, but we really have to know a person’s taste because many women are extremely particular when it comes to personal gifts like this. Therefore, I won a variety of rings and earrings, put them in a box and allowed my friends select the ones they liked most.
  • Oil paintings would also be something I would include in my novelty gift list, and DealDash offers many lovely oil paintings. Sometimes these oil paintings sell at really good bargain prices, too.

Seven Questions for Happy Shoppers

The first time I found DealDash.com I had so much fun shopping, I didn’t want to stop. I quickly became a 24-7 shopper.

It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of winning some awesome products at bargain prices. But it’s also important to be a happy shopper. Responsible shoppers are happy shoppers. DealDash wants happy customers because happy customers always come back for more.

Therefore, I developed the following list of the seven questions happy shoppers are most likely to ask:

  1. Is it easier to win the auctions where the Buy It Now price is low rather than auctions where the price is high? As a general rule, the higher the Buy It Now value of the product, the more bids it takes to win it. However, some customers place bids on high-value auctions and get pleasantly surprised every day.
  2. Does the same auction product go up for auction several times a day? If so, should I try an auction at a different time instead?
  3. If we do not win the auction, could we afford to Buy It Now and get all of our bids back free?
  4. In addition to the selling cost of the auction, we must remember that the total cost includes what we spend on the number of bids used to win. Check to see how many bids past winners used to win the auction.
  5. How many power bidders do we see in the auction? Did we check to see the screen names of everyone who recently won a large bid pack? If one of our competitors recently won a large bid pack, we might not want to try to outbid him or her.
  6. Would we have the time to monitor the auction from beginning to end? How long might it take for the auction to close?
  7. Is this auction product something you or your family might need and will use?

Are you a happy shopper? By making a check list like the one above, it could help DealDash shoppers make more responsible shopping choices. Happy shopping everyone!

More New Cars

If you have not looked at DealDash.com lately, look again!

Seven DealDash shoppers already won a brand new car, and 15 other new vehicles have not yet been won. Four are still open and have not yet been closed to new bidders. Can you imagine how exciting it would be to win a 2019 brand new vehicle for a fraction of the list price?

Take your pick: Ford, Honda, Chevrolet, Toyota, Nissan or Volkswagen. Choose any of the many makes and models of the new vehicles now available and place your bids. Who knows, with the right bidding strategy, you could be the next winner.

I know what you might be thinking — how? How in the world could I afford to buy enough bids to win a new car? I have not yet won a new car. I had to tighten my budget because I first have to pay for a new roof on my house instead. However, as soon as I can afford to shop for a new vehicle, I have some good ideas on what kind of strategies might work.

This is what I will do:

  • I will choose the vehicle that I would most like to win.
  • I will only place bids on one car at a time. We probably all heard the quote: “Never put all your eggs in one basket!” However, I do not think that would apply in this case. The new vehicles are now limited to one per customer, anyway.
  • I will figure out how many bids I can afford to buy and only place my bids when the bidding gets down to the last two or three active bidders.
  • I will figure out how much I could pay for the new vehicle and I will quite bidding when the cost to the winner goes above that amount.

It is great fun shopping on DealDash, but it’s up to each one of us to shop responsibly, know what our financial limits are and stick with them. Happy shopping everyone!
