Process of Elimination

To successfully shop and win awesome bargains on it’s important to think about the process of elimination. Let me explain what I mean.

First, we need to decide what we want to shop for. Do we want to shop only for practical items we need or do we want to shop for products that are nice to have or might be a lovely gift for someone. Once we decide on that, we can look for specific items we have on our shopping list.

Next, we must determine the number of bids we will need, and how many bids we can afford to buy. If we open the auction item, we can see the average number of bids it took other customers to win. Perhaps we already have enough bids in our account balance, but we might need to purchase another package of bids.

If we are on a tight budget and want to find some “easy-to-win” auctions, we could check the winner’s list to see which products are selling for the least amount of money and the lowest number of bids. Now we are ready to start shopping. The only question is which ones?

When we start bidding in an auction, it’s a good idea to start with a small number of bids and watch to see who bids in the same auction. If you see a power bidder join the auction, we might be better off waiting until the same item comes up for auction again. If there are no power bidders we recognize and only a small number of customers are bidding in the same auction, we might want to add more bids and go for the win.

By asking ourselves these common sense questions before we start shopping, we will have a fun and exciting DealDash shopping experience.
