Winning Only Bid Packs at DealDash

1000-bid-packThere is an entire culture of players at DealDash that loves to just win bid packs.  If you plan on winning bid packs too, you should try to learn who they are.  The first line of defense is to watch a handful of bid pack auctions. Try watching more that one, it doesn’t help if you are only seeing a couple of players, you want to see who is bidding hard on the bid packs.

Write down a list of names and characteristics, this is a guide to your future bidding.  I am a firm believer in “planning” to win.  That entails shopping, setting alarms and showing up on time for an auction.  Once in the auction you can assess the players, and there are a few different types.

There is the guy who comes in and stays the whole time, they will bid many more than the bid pack price and usually are using free bids they got for Time As High Bidder to win.  They can be avoided by staying away from the auction, they can’t be in every auction, although some try, so you will have a chance.  There is no hurry, if you don’t get in this one, there is one right around the corner.  DealDash releases bid packs constantly throughout a 24 hour period.

Bid during the off hours.  Try winning your bid packs at night, there are usually less players, and you could win for less.  Also, start with small packs and parlay into bigger packs.  Don’t get caught up in a bidding war over a 150 bid pack, use only a few bids, you don’t want to use all the bids you have to get less than you started with.  Bids weigh the same, so whether you go for a 150 pack or a 1500 pack, you can win with a few bids, or it may take more, but why not go for the big pack?

I always bid on the front end of a bid pack, the end is so volatile.  There are some players who like to join in the auction long after others have bid many bids, so to out smart them bid early because the auction often ends long before they come back.  Being a Jumper doesn’t mean you win more, it’s just a strategy.

Stay away from Stompers, those who bid without using a Bid Buddy, if you value your free bids for Time As High Bidder, and you love bids if you’re bidding on bid packs, so you must simply get out of an auction with a stomper.  Stomping back doesn’t pay, it’s a lose-lose situation.

I love bids too, but I refuse to use 1000 bids to win 1000 bids, others don’t, get to know the difference between those two bidding styles.  The fun thing about bids is there are a lot of players who don’t play for them at all, so once you get to know the crowd, it’s just you, them and the Newbies…they love bid packs too!

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!

Best Times To Bid at DealDash

Whenever you show up at the DealDash site is a fun time to bid, there are winners every couple of minutes, but are you bidding at the right time?  There is some question to whether or not there are better times to bid, and I am here to tell you, there certainly are.  The best way to see how crowded the site is would be to go into a popular auction, like a TV or a computer.  Count the number of players who got involved. You will see between 20-120 players, this is a good indicator to the site load.

First, you want to bid when the site isn’t overloaded with players.  There is always a crowd on the weekends.  Many players work all week, they are too busy to come to the site, but on the weekends, it’s a free-for-all!  You can also imagine that if you get paid on Friday, you’re going to join the fun for the weekend.

Second, some sales will have an influence on the number of players, for example, when there is a bid multiplier on the free bids DealDash rewards us, or if the final price of the item is one penny during a Free Event.  A sale where there is a No New Bidder after $3 is a great time to bid, this type of sale happens occasionally, and it reduces the field of players because no one can join the auction after the retail price reaches $3.

Mondays seem to be very busy.  I have noticed the residual players on Monday, they are still battling it out from the weekend.  That’s the beauty of DealDash, it’s a battle, and we love it!  So, those are the day of the weeks that are usually very busy.  But what time of day is best?

The time of day is important because the number of players wains in the wee hours of the night, then the number of players is usually lower, so you do have an advantage after midnight California time.  You can’t really play for the East Coast, it’s all about California because they are hours behind the East, you must factor them in.  One thing I like about the middle of the night is, players fall asleep at the wheel, literally, and their Bid Buddy runs out of bids before morning, that’s a great time to swoop in an win.

I like to bid on a daily basis right around what I call “drive time”  That’s when workers across America are driving to or from work.  That would be around 8AM on either coast. That helps eliminate the workers, but there are a lot of Grandmas and Grandpas on DealDash, they bid day and night and never sleep.  It helps to get to know them and actually avoid getting in a battle with them.

Who you are bidding against is just as important as what time it is, it’s all part of the strategy you need to develop to play DealDash.  Your wins may feel random, but it you plan to win, you will do better.  It’s not practical to just join the site and start randomly bidding.  Do yourself a favor and do some planning.

I’ve found mid week and mid day to be a great time to bid.  There seems to be the least amount of players, however, you will find those grandparents bidding during those hours.

A bit of advice, when you are trying to figure out which time of day suits you best, get some sleep. I stayed up for days at a time in the beginning, it’s such a learning curve, I didn’t want to stop.  What I can share with you is, you can use your Bid Buddy, and be generous.  There is always another one tomorrow or even later today, the popular items are usually offered in cycles, check the auction to see when the last offer was.

These are a few of the tips I can share with you to help you win.  You win more, I win more, we all win!

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!

It’s Party Time at DealDash!

stainless-steel-15-pc-127It’s so much fun to bid at DealDash, so why not get some chores done while you are bidding.  This time of year we Americans do a lot of celebrating and you could find some wonderful deals on the things you need to pull off the best holiday party going!

bakewareDealDash has a nice selection of Pots, Pans and Bakeware.  These are items that come up for auction occasionally, so you have to do your shopping and planning to get involved with the auction.  First search what you are looking for and then use the convenient “Alert Me” tab to have DealDash alert you when the auction is scheduled.  I find, if I can find an item in a search bar, it isn’t long before it does come on the market.  These everyday items are perfect for Binning.  That is the Buy It Now (BIN) promise from DealDash, if you try to win an item, and you don’t win it, you can BIN it and get the bids you used trying. This way you do end up with your item, plus you get the bids back to try to win another item.

kitchenaidDealDash has fair retail prices comparable to the big box stores, and they ship every item for free whether you win it or BIN it…free shipping every time. They also rotate the stock, what you may see today won’t necessarily be available next week.  Items can “run a course” and not return.  Meaning, if they carry the pictured set of pots and pans this month, it may be a different manufacturer next month.

They have a few items that are really popular and they always have them, like the coveted stand mixer in every color under the rainbow. Not only are they wonderful to have, they make a fantastic gift.  I try to win one for all the nieces when they marry.  Needless to say, I’m a pretty popular Auntie. The stand mixer is a tough win, you can win it for less than $10, I see it all the time, but more likely, you will close above $100, that’s 10,000 bids between you and a dozen or so players, so be prepared!

I have experience winning the bakeware too, they can go for few bids, I love to get involved and if I don’t win an item under $150 with a couple dozen bids, I back out and opt to either BIN or forfeit the bids.  It’s ok, there is always the next one.

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!

Ways to Get Free Bids at DealDash

free bids on dealdashEven though it’s fun to bid and shop at DealDash regardless of the free bids, it’s still great to be appreciated by them and rewarded for loyalty.  DealDash is the most generous penny auction site ever!  With just a little “leg work” you will be able to enhance your bidding experience with some free bids from DealDash.

The easiest way to get bids, is my all time favorite, just bid.  For every second you are the highest bidder in any auction, you are earning free bids for your time, this is called Time As High Bidder (TAHB).  When the Bid Buddy places a bid, there is about 10 seconds before Bid Buddy places the next players bid,  this is your time which accumulates until you reach the next level.  When you reach the next level, your Bid Meter will light up and when you click it, the bids are deposited right into your account.  Often, DealDash will have specials where they multiply the free bids by 2, 3, 4 or even 5 times the free bids!  Each level you achieve rewards you with an increasing number of bids, the longer you bid, the more you get.

You can get free bids from DealDash for posting a photo of a win to the community at [email protected] Take a nice “bust” shot of you with your win, send it with a comment about your savings and experience to the community at DealDash and they will post it to their social media page.  DealDash uses Facebook to share photos, thoughts of the day and reviews from other players. Depending on the value of the item, you are awarded 50 to 350 free bids for your photo and comment.  Then each photo submitted where the prize is over $99 will be entered in a weekly Photo of the Week, where the winner is awarded 1000 bids.

You can get free bid by winning too, each win (except bid packs) comes with a bid exchange.  Let’s say you win an item and you don’t really need it.  DealDash will let you exchange the item for an amount of bids equal to about one bid per .50 cents to a dollar for the value of the item,  for example, if you win a $100 item, you can exchange it for approximately, 50 bids to 100 bids. Likewise if the item is valued at $1500, you may get up to 1500 bids for that exchange.  There is a group of players who do this all the time, they bid, win and exchange. I try to only use this feature if I need bids for another items which I want.  If you exchange a win, you don’t get the item,  so if you do this all the time, you won’t have anything show for it.  So, use it sparingly.

DealDash has a new review feature, and every time you receive an item in the mail, you are give an opportunity to review the product and the service that came with it.  For every item you review DealDash will give you 10 bids.  Often, I will have 10 or more reviews to leave, they add up quick because you do win a lot at DealDash.

There is a new feature, this is a reward for each consecutive day you bid, so if you bid on Monday they give you a couple of bids, on Tuesday a few more and so on all the way up to 7 days where you are rewarded 30 bids, and then for every day you continue to bid you will get 30 more bids.  I always save one bid each day so tomorrow the first bid I place gives me 30 bids.  Some days, when I don’t buy bids, I still have a few bids to go for a little something.  I’ve won many, many items with less than 30 bids.

So, all you have to do to earn free bids at DealDash is to show up and bid, then win and get some more free bids.  It’s a wonderful system and I feel greatly appreciated for these free bids.

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!
