Tips to Save Your DealDash Bids

DEALDASH BIDSDon’t waste your DealDash bids! Here are some tips to save bids as well as money.

If you’re an avid DealDasher you know that bids = money. Each bid costs between .12-.60, so those totals add up fast. You don’t want to throw away money or bids, so don’t waste them! Be smart with your bids, save them for what you really love, and be thrifty. Here are some tips and ideas from DealDash to help you save your bids and use them wisely.

BidBuddy, Your Best Bid Saver

The smartest way to save your bids is by using the BidBuddy. The BidBuddy is the BEST way to save bids because he will never waste them and bid out of turn. When you are manually clicking the bid button it’s very easy to lose track of the order that people are bidding in, and therefore wasting a bid by bidding too early. The BidBuddy will never do that. Your BidBuddy keeps bidding in a strict order with the other BidBuddies, and will never bid early or late – but precisely right on time.

Who Gets to Use the BidBuddy?

Everyone! Every single bidder on DealDash has access to the BidBuddy. 90% of auctions on DealDash are won by using the BidBuddy. You can put in as few or as many bids as you like into the BidBuddy, and it bid for you until your bids have run out. You can always add more bids or cancel the BidBuddy at any time.

Collect Free Bids From DealDash

What better way to save money than by bidding with FREE bids. DealDash has many opportunities for you to win and earn free bids. There is a contest every week for the best photo posted to Facebook, you can pick yourself up a free 1,000 pack of bids right there! You can also get free bids by just showing up to DealDash and bidding. It’s true. Every single day that you come to DealDash and place at least one bid you will be rewarded a nimber of free bids from 5 to 30. The more days in a row that you come bid the more free bids you will earn.

BIN an Auction, Save Your Bids

Using the BIN (Buy It Now) feature of DealDash is a great way to save bids. Simply bid on things that you plan on buying anyway, and if you lose you can use the BIN option on DealDash and receive all of your bids back when you pay the retail price of the item. DealDash will when refund all of the bids you used on that item, and you can try again another day. You will also even get free shipping on the item, no matter if you WIN or BIN.

DealDash Tips to Win More Auctions

Do you win DealDash.com auctions on purpose or do you win by pure luck?

You might think that’s a funny question, but wise players know that winning auctions with any consistency requires more than pure luck. It requires careful thought and strategy to put the odds of winning in your favor.

visit-site12-13

Regardless how well you plan, unexpected distractions (such as an important phone call) can result in lost auctions, which just happened to me. However, if you follow these rules, you will greatly improve your chances of winning:

  • Set aside quiet time to bid when you are free from distractions
  • Choose five or six auctions you would like to win and place at least one bid in each one so you do not get locked out
  • Once the “No New Bidders” banner locks all other bidders out, double click on each auction and count the total number of bidders participating in each auction
  • Narrow it down to the auctions with the highest retail value and fewest number of bidders
  • Check to see if any of those auctions appears to be down to the last two or three serious bidders and see if you recognize any of them as power bidders
  • Check the closing cost of the auctions the last nine times to see which one usually closed for the least amount of money
  • Place the bulk of your bids on the auction you appear to have the best chance of winning based on the average closing cost and who the serious bidders are, but remain flexible
  • If more players jump into your auction, while players drop out of one of the other auctions, cancel your bids in that auction and place them in the other auction instead.

By taking all of this into consideration, you just might win your next auction on purpose.  Congratulations!

How Was DealDash Started?

DealDash was actually started when it’s founder, William Wolfram, was a customer of another bidding site that’s now extinct. William lost $20 bidding on a computer, and when he didn’t win he was very disappointed that he had lost his money and had nothing to show for it. However, that lost $20 gave him the amazing idea to start DealDash. DealDash is different from the other pay-to-bid auction sites, because if you are willing to buy the item that you are bidding on for the retail value then you will receive all of your bids back to use again in a different auction. This is called Buy It Now.

How Does Buy It Now Work?

Buy It Now, or BIN, is the “secret sauce” that makes DealDash different from the rest of the pay-to-bid auction sites. With the other sites, after you have bid, those bids are gone forever. Not with DealDash. BINning an item is easy. Once you have decided that it’s time to throw in the towel and stop bidding on an auction you have a choice. Do you want to just lose those bids? Probably not, especially if it was a lot of bids. However, if you just want to walk away and lose the bids, that’s fine.

If you’d rather get your bids back, then just click the “Buy It Now” button that’s present in every auction. After you’ve paid, your bids will be returned to you immediately. You’ll also get free shipping on every item – no matter if you won it or BINned it.

DealDash Tips: How to win gift cards

Gift cards are a popular auction on DealDash.com so they are not easy to win.

Let’s take a look at the $50 Bed, Bath & Beyond gift card up for auction right now (as of this writing). After the “No New Bidders” limit was reached, I counted the competitors. Guess how many players placed at least one bid to participate in this auction?  I counted 126.

That means we each have only one chance out of 126 of winning this auction. If all of these players each put 50 bets into BidBuddy (the automated bidder), this auction would not close until it reached $63.  During a “Free-to-the-Winner” special feature, players often continue bidding over the value of the gift card. Why? When we don’t have to pay a closing cost, all we have to count is the cost of the bids we are using.

visit-site12-13

Of course, not all 126 players are going to add more than one bid and seriously compete in this auction. Many players might count how many players are participating and give up before they start. However, the players who do decide to seriously compete will most likely use more than 50 bids.

Let’s do the math.  If each of the 126 players bought a bid pack when they were on sale for 13 cents per bid, the maximum number of bids each player could place to break even would be 384. If the winner of this $50 gift card uses any more bids than that, it means that bidder actually lost more than he or she won. If the winner of this gift card uses fewer than 384 bids, it means that player won more than he or she lost.

Of course, our objective in playing on DealDash is to win more than we lose. Therefore, it most likely would be a complete waste of bids to place the bulk of our bids too early. With that many competitors, chances are very slim that the $50 gift card would close before it reaches at least $30.00.  In fact, the $50 Bed, Bath & Beyond gift card just hit $30 and there are still six serious players bidding in the  auction.

To save money on gift cards, smart players will only place bids when the auction is down to the last two or three players. The idea is to allow all of the other serious players to use up their maximum number of bids before you do. If you look to see how much this auction usually closes at, that might be the right time to join the auction with the bulk of your bids. However, keep in mind that whenever DealDash runs the “Free-to-the-Winner” auctions, the closing price usually goes up much higher.

DealDash Tips to Stop Overbidding

Image result for dealdash bidding

Finding yourself overbidding in the middle of an auction can be a little stressful. Here are some of the top DealDash tips to stop overbidding.

Are you the sort of person who just click, click, clicks the bid button when you’re in a DealDash auction? Stop that! You’re not doing yourself any favors by overbidding, and you’re probably annoying the other bidders as well. Before you find out how to stop overbidding, you’re going to have to figure out why you’re overbidding. Here are some tips fro DealDash to help.

You’re Overexcited

Are you new on DealDash? Are you still in the “oh so excited” honeymoon phase? Being overexcited is a very common reason that people tend to overbid in DealDash auctions. The way to correct this, of course, is to slow down! Think before you act. Don’t be impulsive.

Not Counting Your Bids

Along with being overexcited, another reason that you might be overbidding is that you just aren’t paying attention to how many bids that you are spending. It’s very easy to keep clicking and not pay attention to how many bids that you’re really spending. There is a simple solution to this as well – BidBuddy! BidBuddy is here for you. You don’t need to sit there and click, click, click and lose track of how many bids that you are spending. Figure out ahead of time how many bids that you want to spend on a particular auction, input that amount into the BidBuddy, and let him do the clicking for you.

Using the BidBuddy on every single auction is a smart move. Do you always use your BidBuddy? You should! In addition to helping you keep track of how many bids that you are spending, the BidBuddy can save you if your power goes out, your internet connection flickers, or your computer decides to do the dreaded “Update, install, and re-start” when you are in the middle of bidding in a DealDash auction. Be smart, use BidBuddy – every time.

Do You Know the Value of the Item?

Another reason that you might overbid in an auction is that you don’t know the actual value of the item. Every DealDash item clearly displays the retail price of the item on the auction, however, not everyone pays attention to this. You can tell that people aren’t paying attention when they end up spending $50 on a $50 item. That’s just silly because you have to take into account the price of the bids that they spent as well. Be smart and check out the value of the item before you start bidding all over the place. You will save yourself some bids, money, and aggravation as well.

DealDash Tips: Check Out the Winners’ List

Before bidding in an auction on DealDash.com it is a good idea to check out the “Winners’ List.” Why?  The “Winners’ List” provides valuable information that can help us win actions using fewer bids.

To locate the “Winners’ List,” go to the top of the home page. Near the upper right, where it shows how many bids you have left in your account, you will see the “Winners” header. If you click on it, you will see a list of the most recent winners.

The first thing I do is scroll down that list to find out who won the biggest bid packs. For example, at the time of this writing, I see that “fapromos” won a 500 bid pack 18 minutes ago, “Bearose36” won a 6,000 bid pack 35 minutes ago and “10124501” won a 1,000 bid pack 2 hours ago.  I always write down the screen names of everyone who recently won a bid pack, especially the large ones.

 

visit-site12-13

Then, when I double click on the auction I want to win, I check to see if any of those screen names are participating in the same auction.  If I see one of those screen names, I wait for the next auction that has the product I want.

As a senior citizen on a limited budget, I know I cannot win over a player who has a lot of bids to burn, and these players did not yet have enough time to use up all of the bids they just won.

DealDash Tips: Getting to Know the Bidders

dealdash avatar

Do you know who you’re up against? Let’s get to know the other bidders.

There are many different types of bidders on DealDash. These bidders come from the 48 contiguous states and all different walks of life. You might be up against a retired grandma, a 21-year-old college kid, and a “shark” of a lawyer, all in the same auction! It’s interesting how there are so many different types of bidders there are, you can get a small glimpse into their life from reading their little bidder bio. Along with so many different types of people come different bidding styles. Here are some tips from DealDash on spotting the different types of bidders.

The Scattered Bidder

Bidders that scatter their bids here and there seemingly without too much thought behind it aren’t usually too much of a threat, in my opinion. These bidders are usually newbies, and don’t usually realize how many bids that it might really take to win an auction. Normally these bidders will throw 10 or 15 bids into an auction manually instead of using the BidBuddy, get frustrated, and move on.

Power Bidders

Everyone knows the Power Bidders! These are the bidders that just don’t stop. The Power Bidders will bid more than the value of the auction just to prove a point. These are bidders who will bid 1,000 bids on an item that’s only worth 400 bids, just to show everyone that they’re here to win. The Power Bidders are bidders that you really don’t want to tangle with. If I were you, I’d keep a list of the Power Bidders and make it a point not to get involved in auctions with them.

Smart Bidders

It should go without saying that a smart bidder is the kind of bidder that you want to be. Smart bidders are bidders who do their research, pick the best items, and bid cautiously. Smart bidders use their BidBuddies, stay away from the Power Bidders, and don’t get too emotionally invested in the auctions. These bidders are people who tend to win regularly, and BIN (Buy It Now) regularly as well. Smart bidders know that you can’t win them all, and they can get all of their bids back as well as free shipping when they BIN an item that they know they won’t win but have invested too many bids to quit. If you’re not a smart bidder, no problem! You can start implementing the practices of a smart bidder right away, and be well on your way to winning more auctions.

Tips for Winning Last Minute Auctions

DealDash auctions

Are you a “last minute” type of person? It’s possible to win an auction last minute, here are some tips from DealDash.

Do you do things at the very last minute? Might some people call you a bit of a procrastinator? Normally, I recommend doing research on the auctions and the bidders you go up against. However, if you’re just naturally a last minute type of person you will enjoy reading these tips that are just for you.

Stick to Low-Value Auctions

Bidding last minute and winning is possible, but it’s doubtful that you will win high-valued items. If bidding last minute is your preferred method, then stick to the low-valued auctions. What do I mean by low-valued? In the DealDash world, things under $200 are considered lower-valued. This doesn’t mean that they aren’t great items or auctions, they are just a lower price.

There are lots of great items that are under $200 such as sheet sets, necklaces, rings, candles, bid packs, purses and laptop bags, and many more things. Just because things are priced lower doesn’t mean that they aren’t good quality, these are nice items that come with manufacturer’s warranties included.

Bid on One of Many

Have you noticed that DealDash offers the same or similar items a few times per day? If you’re in the mood to win a last minute auction, then seek out these items. If there are 2 or more items that are the same or very similar going on at the same time, then you have a better chance of winning one quickly than a highly sought after and rare item.

Try Bidding on Bid Packs

Bid packs are something that every bidder can use, and they come up for auction many, many times per day. Bid packs are great for a quick win because they often end for a low price, therefore ending fairly quickly. You probably could have figured this out on your own, but if you stick to bid packs of 100 or less they will usually end fast. Just click on this link right here and it will take you to all of the current auctions for bid packs.
