DealDash Tips: Easy-to-Win Auctions

New players on usually have better luck by looking for auctions that are easy to win.

To identify easy-to-win auctions, look for auctions that have the lowest retail value. Experienced players tend to only bid on the high-dollar items, so the lower the retail value, the lower the competition level might be, also.

Double-click on the auctions with the lowest retail value and look at the closing cost the last nine times that product went up for sale.

After you identify the auctions with the lowest retail value that consistently closes for the least amount of money, it’s time to see what day of the week and what time of day is best.  You can figure this out by looking at these auctions on different days of the week and at different times of the day–morning noon and night.




From my own experience, it appears that competition is usually greater on weekends when more people are off work. The best time of the day to bid, however, often changes. Sometimes the competition appeared to be less late at night. Other times it appeared to be less early in the morning. A few times, I had some great wins at noon when the competition was exceptionally low.

Perhaps it’s just a matter of being in the right auction at the right time.  Therefore, the more times you get on DealDash, the better the chances are that you could be the next lucky winner.

Once you learn how to win low-retail auctions, you will be able to move on to bigger and better wins, but it’s usually best to start out on the low-value products until you develop some winning strategies of your own.

Good luck everyone!
