Here’s the thing… we love to play DealDash, we love winning, we love the fireworks explosion every time we win, it all so exciting! Often we will wish our competitor would just go away, but the truth is without them it would just be shopping. The real excitement comes by beating someone else out of the deal of the day.
So this is what I suggest, be kind to your fellow player. Don’t jump into an auction after someone has placed 3000 bids, it’s not nice. I like to play fair and if I see that kind of effort, I will back down. I most likely won’t be spending my life savings, as they are, so I’m good! There is an exception to that rule, if you have jumped me in the past you will be jumped by me. I keep a notebook and I hope you do to.
All things considered, we are in this together, we all want a good deal. Here’s another idea, if a fellow player has 8 of 9 wins, let them have it! They are out of the field and you are clear to bid on another item they were in.
The truth is, we can be friendly to each other, or we can be a real jerk, the choice is yours, but if you choose to play dirty, expect to be treated like dirt. I’m not saying all DealDashers are reckless, but there are a few notorious over bidders, stompers and jumpers. There is no way around it, Just do your homework, it will pay off in the end.
For the love of DealDash, use your Bid Buddy! The kindest thing you can do for your fellow Dasher is use your Bid Buddy. It’s the best way to conserve bids and stay in the game without making your competitors angry. You might think it’s okay to bully by bidding every other bid, but it will just come back to haunt you. Some players will stomp right back and then there is a price raising frenzy in play, it’s just a sad waste of bids, and the greatest part is the guy who was using the Bid Buddy will win because he didn’t miss or skip a beat.
Some items require a great amount of time and effort, it takes patience and thought. Don’t be that guy who bangs in a bid after every player, you are canceling yourself out and wasting your money.
Overall, we should strive to be fair to our competitors, you want to win, but do you really need to beat them up? In the grand scheme of things, you want to win, so just use your Bid Buddy because we are all in this together!
Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!
