Early Bird Gets the Worm

My mother often said, “The early bird gets the worm.” As a child, I never gave it much thought but now I know it is good advice, especially when shopping on DealDash.com. Why?

Often times when a new product is listed on DealDash, most customers are reluctant to place bids on it, but those who do are like the “early bird that gets the worm.” By being one of the first customers to place bids on new auction products, we are more likely to win a great deal.

Many DealDash customers believe it is best to wait until later in an auction to place bids after other customers have been bidding for a while and might be running low on bids. However, I have noticed that auction winners often start placing bids early. Those who are determined to win an auction tend to stay with the bidding from beginning to end. I also noticed that some of the best bargains are won when an auction unexpectedly closes early.

I saw some perfect examples of that just this morning:

  • A winner of a 500 bid pack used only one bid and the auction closed for 10 cents
  • Another winner of a 500 bid pack used only two bids and the auction closed for 7 cents
  • A winner of a 425 bid pack used only two bids and the auction closed for 8 cents
  • A winner of a 650 bid pack used only six bids and the auction closed for 26 cents
  • A winner of a 850 bid pack used only four bids and the auction closed for $1.19

I was thinking about placing bids for the 850 bid pack myself, but I thought it would take an awful lot of bids to win it. I was wrong. If we placed only 10 bids or less, we could have won the bargains listed above.

My mother also used to say, “Good things can come to those who wait, but only the things left behind by those who hustle.” Let’s all “hustle” so we don’t get left behind. Why not become the “early bird that catches the worm” or the “Deal Dasher” who places enough early bids to win some great bargains.
