You know how this little guy is said to be “Man’s best friend?”
He may be man’s best friend, bid BidBuddy is bidder’s best friend! Let me tell you why…
First, I’d like to thank all of the DealDash users who have left comments, and feedback in our DealDashTips blog. We love hearing about your bidding tips and auction experiences, so keep them coming!
One tip that a lot of DealDash users have been recommending lately has been the BidBuddy feature.
Did you know about the BidBuddy feature on DealDash?
The BidBuddy lets you bid on auctions, so you don’t have to keep clicking the bid button.
It will even bid for you when you’re away from the computer.
Although, I would highly suggest you stay in front of the computer, and watch the auctions if you are going to pay for bids to participate in them. We know that there may be times where you can’t get to a computer, and really wanted to bid on a particular item. That’s where BidBuddy comes in handy and may become your favorite feature on DealDash.
BidBuddy Can Save You Money
If you’re click happy and find yourself going through a lot of bids, or just tired of clicking the bid button each time. Say need to make an important phone call or anything, the BidBuddy is really helpful.
BidBuddy can even help you save money because it will place bids close to the auction’s end time. This is especially helpful because you don’t have to worry about placing a bid too close to the end time only to find when you click it and it registered in the system it was too late and the auction ends.
This is a great feature if you are prone to getting distracted during bidding, or are having problems with your Internet connection.
How do you use the BidBuddy?
It’s really quite simple.
You can use BidBuddy in any DealDash auction.
1. Add the number of bids you would like to place in the auction in the BidBuddy area right below the bid button.
2. Then, click Book a BidBuddy and the BidBuddy will bid for you up until it has used all of the bids you booked, or until you win!
A good thing about it is you can cancel the BidBuddy at any time and if you happen to win on BidBuddy the only bids you will use are the ones that were placed in the auction prior to winning. If multiple bidders are using BidBuddy (note that it is not indicated on the auction page who is on BidBuddy or not) then all users will take turns placing bids, until the bids from all but one user’s BidBuddy run out. As soon as you book your BidBuddy one bid will be placed, the rest will be placed periodically towards the last few seconds of the auction.
See what DealDash user dlytle99 says about using BidBuddy, they have some really good tips about bididng on DealDash!
“… Make sure to first check out the site and watch several auctions before bidding on anything. Not doing that turned out to be my biggest mistake when I first got started.
I would have saved myself a lot of money (and other bidders a lot of irritation) had I understood about using the bid buddy.
I went through all my bids and didn’t win a single thing the first day I joined.
Deal dash gave me all my bids back to try again and I won that time and since then have won dozens of things in just the last few months but after learning the hard way. But after you start winning you also have to resist getting addicted! This is such a fun site.
Their customer service is fantastic should you need any help or have a question. I’m still waiting to see my idea of a little box somewhere on each auction indicating how many bids you have booked… :)”
Bidder Bonnie also likes using BidBuddy, she tells us “Please use your bid buddy if you try to wait the clock out your not going to make it the clock will win. Wait it out watch the other biders see how many are in the auction and there is no harm waiting till the next auction everything is up again sometimes in the next few minutes especially bid packs be courteous to others always in every way.”
These are great tips! And Bonnie, that is a great recommendation!
