Fast, Easy Payments

If my bids are running low when I’m participating in an auction, I might only have a few seconds to purchase and place more bids in an auction before it closes. In situations like that the ease and speed of making transactions is very important.

That’s what I love about DealDash.com. It has the most convenient and fast payment system I have ever used online.

It is very simple to navigate and use the DealDash payment system. In fact, it is almost too easy to spend money on this site, especially when DealDash offers such a wide variety of bid packs that often go on sale. Right now bid packs are only 13 cents a bid and I like the variety of bid packs we can choose from:

They are:

  • 55 bids for $7
  • 300 bids for $39
  • 600 bids for $78
  • 2,000 bids for $260 and
  • 4,000 bids for $520.

For auction wins or Buy It Now orders, customers can use PayPal or any major credit card, including VISA, Master Card, American Express or Discover. If I use PayPal, I have the option to stay logged in with one-touch to keep all my information handy, in case I need to use it again.

Only the last four numbers of my bank account and credit cards show up, so DealDash does a good job of protecting our financial information to keep it safe and secure.

Bid Smart Shoppers

Are you a bid smart shopper?

Bid smart shoppers on DealDash.com do two things. First, they earn as many free bids as they possibly can. Second, they use their bids wisely.

Free Bids

To consistently win 15 free bids per day, all we have to do is place a minimum of one bid in one auction. The first day we will only get a few bids but next day, and every day after that, we will continue to receive more bids until we reach 15. As long as we place at least one bid every day after that (without missing any days), we will continue to receive 15 free bids per day. If we miss a day, it will start all over again. This is an easy way to get free bids.

Another way we can earn free bids is by submitting photos of ourselves with an auction product we won. If the product is worth more than $200 we can earn 350 free bids. Take clear photos that do not have a distracting background. Send photos by email to:  [email protected]. Remember to include your name, description of the item, Buy it Now price, closing cost and how many bids were used to win the auction.

We also earn free bids every time we place bids in any auction on DealDash. Most of the time, we get 10 seconds on the clock whenever one of our bids comes up. Then a green line on the bottom right of our screen will slowly move to the right. When the green line gets all the way to the right, we collect free bids at the end and move up to the next level. The higher our level, the more bids we receive. I’m at Level 64, so the next time my green line moves all the way to the right, I will receive 860 free bids.

Use Bids Wisely

To get the most out of our free bids, it’s a good idea to place bids during the 2X, 3X or 4X feature. That means we will receive 20 seconds, 30 seconds or 40 seconds on the clock instead of only 10. That will make our green line move faster so we can collect free bids sooner. We should also monitor our bids closely and only place bids when the auction gets down to the last two or three bidders.

Shopping Solution

Whenever you are feeling out-of-sorts, have you ever tried the shopping solution?

If you are stuck in a hospital bed, it does not mean you have to be bored. Instead, you could pass the time by shopping on DealDash.com –all from the comfort of your bed.

Likewise, if you are feeling stressed, it does not mean you have to stay there, either. You could shop away your stress on DealDash.

That’s what I call the “shopping solution.” Shopping on DealDash.com could be therapeutic in more ways than one.

I’ve been shopping on DealDash since Feb. 8, 2012. Over the years, DealDash has made many changes, but it still remains an exciting shopping site — especially since they now have several brand new vehicles up for auction.

Other reasons customers keep coming back to DealDash are:

  • Free shipping and handling and no other hidden charges
  • Superb customer service
  • Variety of quality products
  • No limit on the number of bids we can place in the automated bidder
  • Special auctions with a limit of one-per-customer, making it easier for more customers to win
  • Quick and easy payment system.
  • Daily opportunity for customers to win up to 15 free bids, simply by opening up the site and placing one bid.

The next time you are feeling out-of-sorts, bored or stressed, how about trying the DealDash shopping solution. It is loads of fun!

Check Back Often

Perhaps one of the most important things DealDash.com customers can do to win more frequently is to check back often.

The DealDash shopping site changes and the only way to keep track of the latest auctions and the newest customers is to return to the site on a regular basis.

My previous list of power bidders to avoid needs to be updated on a regular basis because the customer base changes, too, and it’s a good idea to be familiar with who’s who. New customers come and old customers go.

If we look at the last seven winners of the auctions we want to win, we will see that some shoppers win a much better bargain than others. Why is that? Answer: Sometimes more than one power bidder competes in the same auctions and they knock heads.

I’ve been a loyal customer of DealDash since Feb. 8, 2012, and I’ve noticed that whenever two or more power bidders compete in the same auction, that auction will not close for a very long time and the final selling price will go a lot higher. Therefore, smart customers will return to the site often enough to recognize the screen names of the following kind of shoppers:

  • Those who consistently have a seemingly endless supply of bids
  • Those who have a habit of overbidding the value of the auction product
  • Those who have the habit of joining the auctions with a bunch of bids near the very end.

Any senior on a limited budget, like I am, must make wise decisions to get the most out of all of our bids. Some shoppers might actually enjoy getting into a bidding war, but some of us simply cannot afford it. Therefore, I return to DealDash often enough to keep my keep my list of power bidders updated.

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.

Bid Wizards

Are you a Bid Wizard on DealDash.com?

Bid Wizards instinctively know where to be and when to be there. Bid Wizards are shoppers who consistently win auctions on DealDash using a minimal number of bids. Bid Wizards win great bargains because they have developed bidding strategies that work.

Let’s face it. Everyone can win auctions if they have plenty of bids to place into BidBuddy. It does not take skill to win auctions if we are rich enough to buy hundreds or thousands of bids.

Bid Wizard Rules

Of course the fewer bids we use to win auctions on DealDash, the fewer bids we have to buy. Therefore, Bid Wizards conserve bids by doing the following:

  • Check the Winners’ List to see which auctions are selling for the least amount and for the fewest number of bids and then focus on winning those auctions.
  • Always place a small number of bids at the beginning of the auctions we most want to win. We never know when an auction might close early and that’s when we want to be there.
  • Place more than one bid in auctions that have the fewest number of competitors.
  • Avoid bidding in the same auctions with power bidders who consistently bid over the value of the auction products.
  • Look at the closing cost of the last seven winners and figure out the cost the auction usually closed at. Save bids until the auction gets to that “average” winning amount.
  • Save the bulk of our bids until the auction gets down to the last two or three serious bidders.

By following these rules, we could become Bid Wizards, too!

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!
