On every penny auction site there are bidders who will always seem to win all of the items they start bidding in.
You’ll know these bidders when you see them. They’re powerbidders, and as we told you in our Powerbidder’s Strategy to Winning DealDash Auction Series (See The Powerbidder’s Strategy to Winning DealDash Auctions Part 1 of 3; The Powerbidder’s Strategy to Winning DealDash Auctions Part 2 of 3; The Powerbidder’s Strategy to Winning DealDash Auctions Part 3 of 3.) These powerbidders are ruthless, and well, let’s face it – unless you want to spend all of your bids and buy it now (you will get your bids back with buy it now), it’s not always smart to bid against them.
A good thing about DealDash is that there are win limits in place to keep bidding fair.
Don’t like win limits?
Well think about it this way: Would you ever be able to win anything if the powerbidders were able to win everything?
DealDash’s Win Limits Explained
Each bidder can only win a set number of items each week.
The limits are there to ensure that everyone can win the same amount of items.
Each user can win up to 6 items valued at less than $200, and 3 items valued more than $200 per week.
The item’s price is stated as the Buy it now/MSRP price on each auction.
Once you’re logged in you can track how many items you’ve won each week by looking at the winning limit slots. This can be found next to your bid amount on the top right-hand corner of DealDash.com:
Once you have reached your win limits, the site will not let you bid on more items. Again, no more than 6 items valued under $200, and no more than 3 over $200.
Win limits are reset first thing in the morning on the day of the week you registered. So if you registered on Saturday the win limits should reset at 12am Saturday morning.
