DealDash Tips You Wish You’d Known?


No one can predict the future. What DealDash tips do you wish that you’d known before you started bidding?

Learning how to use DealDash properly can take a few tries. Reading all of the information that you can get your hands on is a good idea. There are blogs like this one and to get you started off on the right foot. There is also an online tutorial, a help section, and customer service representatives an email away. What DealDash tips do you wish that you had known about before you started bidding? Read on for more information.

You should Use the BidBuddy

The BidBuddy is NOT a requirement to using DealDash. However, you really HAVE to use it if you want to win auctions regularly. Do you want to know why? Because everyone uses the BidBuddy. If you aren’t using the BidBuddy then you are at a disadvantage compared to everyone else who is in the auction.

The BidBuddy is easy to set up and does not cost any additional bids to use. Once you have decided to use the BidBuddy you can put in as many or as few bids as you like. You can cancel it or add more bids at any time. The BidBuddy is available on every auction that DealDash has on its website.

Only Bid on Things You Would Pay to Buy

You might be aware that DealDash offers the BIN (Buy It Now) option on all auctions. If you participate in an auction and don’t win, then you can always BIN (Buy It Now) and get the item, free shipping, and all of the bids back to use on another auction. This means that if you only bid on things that you would definitely buy you will always either win or get all of your bids back when you BIN. I wish that someone had clued me into this tip before I started tossing my bids around on things that I would have “liked” to win, but wasn’t “superdupercrazy excited!!!!” to win.

Don’t Be Intimidated By Other Bidders

When I first started on DealDash, long ago, I was very intimidated by people who had “unfriendly” bidder bios. Now, DealDash doesn’t allow mean or threatening bidder bios, and if you see one you should report it. However, bidder bios that said things like “I will still be bidding after you give up” or “Give up now, I never stop” are allowed, they just aren’t very friendly. When I first started and saw bidder bios like that it made me feel a little intimidated. However, after being on DealDash for many years now, I know that most of the things that people say on their bidder bios are pure fiction. Make sure that you fill out your bidder bio, everyone – and keep it friendly!
