DealDash Tips: Don’t Forget to Bid!


Have you ever seen an item on DealDash and thought “I gotta have that!” but then you forget to come back and bid on the item? That is so frustrating! Here are some tips from DealDash to prevent that from happening again.

Picture it, you are browsing around on DealDash and see the perfect item for your home, family, or friend. You think to yourself “I’ll come back later when the bidding is open on this item. Then you walk away and forget about the item. Later you think “Oh no!! I missed that auction!!” I can’t even tell you how many times that has happened to me over the years. It’s a really frustrating experience that doesn’t have to happen to you again! DealDash has implemented a few handy ways that you can prevent this from happening again.

Alerts for the Future

If you have been browsing for something special in an upcoming auction and you spot the item of your dreams it would be a shame to miss out on it. However, if the item isn’t scheduled yet, then you have run into a pickle since you can’t set a BidBuddy for an item that doesn’t have a scheduled start time.

No problem, ladies and gentlemen! DealDash has something called “Alerts” that you can set for the future. You can set an alert for anything in the DealDash product catalog that there isn’t currently an auction scheduled to start soon. Search for anything that you would like or need, and click on the picture when it comes up. If there isn’t an auction scheduled for that item in the near future you will see a little button that says “Alert Me”. Just click that button and DealDash will send you an email when they have scheduled an auction that that item, and then again when it is about to start. I have set alerts for a few things over the years that I ended up with such as my “no touch” stainless garbage can and my automatic cat box. I love the alerts feature because I have a terrible memory!

Bookmarking for the Present

Bookmarking is more for when you are browsing the auctions for the next few hours. If you are on the main page of DealDash you can look ahead for the next 24 hours or so. Bookmarking is so you can remember where an auction is that is starting soon so you don’t need to search for it again. You can bookmark any auctions that you see that have a starting time. If you’re not sure if you want to book a BidBuddy for a particular auction or not, then bookmarking is your next best plan. Simply click the star in the upper right corner, and the auction will be moved to your home page where the active auctions are.

DealDash Tips to Use Bids Wisely

Using your DealDash bids wisely is very important. If you’re not bidding wisely you’re wasting money.

Do you have hundreds and hundreds of DealDash bids? Great! I’m very happy to hear that you have a wealth of DealDash bids to use. However, just because you have lots of bids to spare doesn’t mean that you should waste them or use them any less wisely than if you only had a few. The more bids that you use wisely the happier you will be. Here are some tips on how to use your bids wisely.

Do Your Research

Bidding wisely means making sure that you really really want the item before you start bidding. If you have put in a few bids while you are looking up the item, and after doing your research decide that you don’t actually want the item, you’ve wasted some bids! Do your research before the auction starts!

Make a Budget

If you’ve decided that you are going to buy 200 bids per week to use on DealDash, then you should plan out how you will use them before the auctions start. Don’t use up your entire budget on the first day, decide what you really want to win on DealDash, and save your bids for that item. If you put your entire bid budget on the one item that you really want instead of splitting up the bids on items you aren’t as sure about, then it makes a lot of sense to use the BIN (Buy It Now) option, purchasing the item so you can get all of your bids back.

Use the Bookmark Option

Don’t waste a bid “saving” the auctions that you are merely considering. Use the “Bookmark” option. Bookmarking is available on every single auction, and will save you many, many bids if you have been saving auctions by spending a bid on them to save them. To bookmark an auction, simply click the little star on the top right corner of the auction on the main page. The star will turn yellow, and that means that it’s bookmarked. Easy!
