Planning Ahead On DealDash

By Barbara

How much do you plan ahead when bidding on  Planning ahead is a great idea. Are you a spur-of-the-moment shopper, or do you carefully select the items you want to win and plan ahead?

Do you know that we can look ahead and see which auctions are coming up as much as 23 to 24 hours beforehand?  Although auctions do not become available for active bidding until the last 10 seconds on the clock, we are still allowed to place bids into the automated bidder, BidBuddy.

This feature that allows us to place bids into BidBuddy ahead of time really comes in handy for the following reasons:

  • We might not be at home or available to participate in the auction at the time that it is scheduled to become active
  • We might have had a long, hard day and will be asleep in bed at the time the auction becomes active
  • We might simply be busy and do not want to take a chance of getting in on a particular auction the next time it becomes available.

If we look ahead to see what auctions are scheduled, we could find out if the auction we would like to win is coming up at a different time when the competition might be lower. We could also be among the first shoppers to get in on new auction products before some other customers even notice they are there.
