DealDash: Staying Involved vs. Bid Buddy

When you first get started at DealDash you may be overly involved, just stomping in your bids at random times and quite frankly, losing bids like crazy.  Then you discover Bid Buddy!  The Bid Buddy places bids for you in your place and in your turn.  So, if there are 7 people in the auction and they are all using Bid Buddy, you will have a bid placed for you automatically every 7th bid (or penny cost of item).  For each bid the cost of the item goes up one cent. You hope you put in the largest number of bids to be the last bidder.

Staying active is very important in the beginning, you are learning how many bids you need to use to win certain auctions, but I do recommend you use the Bid Buddy.  So, now you want to branch out, play in more than one auction, this is a fun and exciting time, you are spreading your wings!  This isn’t the time to go rogue.  Use Bid Buddy in every auction you are in.  You can get involved in several auctions, but stay involved my managing all the auctions.  Tip: If you load 10 auctions at once all with 10 bids, they are all bound to end at once before you have a chance to reload them.  Perhaps a better plan would be to put 20 bids on each of 5 auctions.  By that time the field will have thinned out in a couple and managing is easier.

The juggling act is half the fun, so don’t get caught up in the fear of bidding.  Stay involved, especially with the items you really want.  I find I bid on items I don’t want all the time, usually to exchange for bids, but this is a sure way to lose your bids and walk away with nothing.  You have to be willing to lose a lot if you do this.  I’ve gotten used to losing, it wracks you with fear in the beginning, now I just say, “Oh well, you can’t win them all!”.  Don’t get me wrong, I win a lot, in fact, with the new rules, I win more than ever!

The main point here is that it’s best to use Bid Buddy, but it’s also important, especially in the beginning, to stay actively involved in the auction too.  You can do one or the other, but both is best. If you do stay involved and use Bid Buddy you can, as I call it, “micro manage” your auctions.  I will jump in and out of auctions depending on who is in it, how many bidders and the final price.

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!

ninja blenderNot only can you have a lot of fun shopping at DealDash, you can find just about anything you can imagine for your home, family or friends.  There are things you wouldn’t even think of buying if you went to the store, but when you win it at DealDash, it’s the best gift you could give.

juicerThey carry everything for your kitchen, from a blender to a juicer and a toaster to a microwave.  These are great gifts and you can always find someone on your shopping list to treat with these convenient items.   All of these items are on the DealDash occasional list.  They aren’t things you will find every single day, you have to do some planning.

furnitureWhen you find an item that you think you can use and it’s not on the market yet, be sure to “bookmark” it.  If the item is scheduled it will have a countdown clock on the auctions main page.  What you do to bookmark is click the little white star on the upper right hand corner of your item, it will turn yellow, and you’ll know you have it bookmarked.

solar lightsIf the item is planned for a future auction, you can choose the “Alert Me” tab and DealDash will let you know when it becomes a scheduled item. They will send you a few email notifications, all you have to do is show up and bid!

I like to have a nice selection of gifts in my present closest, and one of my favorites to give is the handsome selection of clocks at DealDash, many of the clocks are handmade and very clever in design.  There is a clock for everyone.

dd microwaveThere are many other homewares too, they have a nice selection of ottoman, wall art, lighting, and small furniture.  You will find these items on the site daily, they are always featuring a new design, but they  always have “clocks”.  Trust me when I tell you it’s not too early to start your holiday shopping at DealDash.  You don’t want to wait until the last moment to try to “win” all your gifts, smart winning takes time.  If you plan on Binning your items, you will be alright, just remember to shop for items you can afford to purchase if you don’t win it.

pink tools 87There is a great variety of outdoor items, like tents and patio supplies.  You can find items for your pool and yard, or games for outdoors.  They offer many of these items as “special” offers.  That means you may not find a tent every day on the site, but if you search “tents” you can bookmark and Alert the item.

Anything you can think of, any person on your gift list, any thing that could make you happy can be found at DealDash.  This is the best place to find great quality, everyday items for a fraction of the cost.

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!
