Stay Organized when Bidding at DealDash

It’s so easy to get started at DealDash bidding that you might get a little carried away by all the fun and lose track of some important information.  It’s a good idea to keep a DealDash Journal.  I had one in the beginning, I used it for at least six months.  The information would help me make educated decisions when bidding in my auctions at DealDash.

At first, I didn’t even use Bid Buddy, that is not only disorganized, it’s a hot mess!  Using Bid Buddy will ensure you don’t overbid, something that is very important, especially if you are bidding on a budget.  Use Bid Buddy to help you stay organized.

Keep a list of the players who “won’t quit for anyone”  It helps to know who beat you by overbidding or power bidding.  After time, this information will become something you know, but at first there is so much to remember, you will do yourself a favor to keep track of some players with notes.  I like to remind myself which auction they beat me in or which was close.  Then you can make better decisions when bidding against them again.

Keep track of your wins, I like to keep a real time list going on my desk, this helps me stay organized when bidding, and I can glance over to see what I’ve won and if I exchanged it for bids, how many bids did I get for it.  This is an advantage to bidding at DealDash, if you win an item and then decided you don’t want it, they will let you exchange it for a number of bids, determined by the items popularity.  The more popular, the higher the number of bids.

Don’t forget to write down every time you make a purchase, it will give you a visual, and keep you on budget.  You can be bidding and not pay attention to how much you are spending.  So, keep a list of your expenses.

It’s fun to bid, but to win more, keep track of these few details, it will help you in the long run.  Also, after some time, you will remember most of this without notes, it’s just in the beginning.  Staying organized helps you win, and it makes you feel good too!

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!

Popular Items; Food For Thought at DealDash

I talk about “popular” items in my blogs a lot, but what is a popular item at DealDash?  DealDash carries hundreds of interesting and unusual items, as well as hundreds of everyday items.  You would think that an everyday item, like a toaster for example, wouldn’t be considered very popular, after all everyone has a toaster, right? Well, they do, but toasters wear out and you need a new one.  They also make great gifts.  So, a toaster would be a popular item.

Popular items mean that a lot of players will bid on it.  There will be many, many players in the beginning trying to win for a few pennies, and someone might, so it’s a good strategy.  Then the crowd thins out to a handful of players who are going to give it the ‘ol college try, but they were trying to win it for a few dollars.  Finally, there are those two or three players at DealDash who are sure they are going to win it. I saw a toaster close today with two final players and it ended at about $10.  That is a fantastic deal for a $95 toaster, and a popular item.

Trying to figure out what is popular is hard at first, but once you’ve been playing for a while, you will know. For now, I can give you a few tips.  First, anything that plugs-in is popular: a toaster, blender, vacuum, slow cooker, etc..  Items like that will have a lot of competition because everyone wants one, needs one or want to give it as a gift.  If you didn’t give gifts in the past, you will now, you will win so much at DealDash, you’ll want to share it, and your family and friends will love you for it!

Likewise, trendy items are considered (by me) to be popular too, but these items may be offered more often.  What falls into this category are: drones, bikes, tents, grills.  These items are popular items that generally take longer to win. I have won a couple of these items under $10, but more often closer to $25-$150.  You can figure if an item closes at $150, that means there were 15000 bids placed, to figure out how many bids you may use in this auction divide the number of bids by the number of players for example, the 15000 bids placed, and there are 7 players, 15000/7=2142 bids will be used on average to win this item.

You might ask what isn’t popular, well, DealDash doesn’t have any unpopular items, when they do occasionally put something out there that players think is wrong for the site, players let DealDash know and they remove it.  One item I can think of in this category is….toilet tissue. They don’t carry it anymore.    Other items that might not be as popular (therefore easier to win) are things that may be everyday, but you can have too many, like: lamps, watches, jewelry,

DealDash often offers new items, they are popular once they are discovered.  If it plugs in or it’s trendy, once everyone catches on, they will take longer to win.

Popular items can take a while to win, so be patient, load up on bids and be prepared to Buy It Now if you don’t win it.  This way you will get the bids you used trying refunded to you, and you can go on to win another item with those bids, or BIN again.  It’s the most fun you’ll ever have shopping!!!
