DealDash Power Bidding 101 Tips


Many new bidders aspire to be Power Bidders. Here are some tips to get you on your way to becoming DealDash’s newest Power Bidder.

“What is a Power Bidder?” you might ask. A Power Bidder is someone who strives to win each and every auction that they enter, no matter what the cost. Yes, Power Bidders are the people who will bid $40 on a $25 gift card just to prove a point. “Why would I want to do that?” you might ask next. Simple! If can establish yourself as a Power Bidder whose name is fairly well known around DealDash then you can win auctions by just entering them. If you’re a known Power Bidder then many people will drop out of the auction when they see you enter. If you’d like to learn more, then read on.

Buy Lots of Bids (at a Good Price)

If you want to be a Power Bidder then you will need lots and lots of bids. When you first start out attempting to learn how to be a Power Bidder you’ll have to establish a name for yourself by winning many, many auctions. You’ll lose money at first, but once you have shown the other bidders that you mean business and that you’ll bid until you win then other bidders should start to back off when they see you coming.

If you want to establish yourself, however, you’ll want to get your bids as cheaply as possible. You will need to wait until you see the bids on a great sale, then you should buy as many as you can within your budget. The more bids you buy when you see them on a great sale, the fewer bids you will have to buy when they aren’t on a fantastic sale. When you buy bids for the lowest price possible then you increase your bidding power.

Show Up Every Day

Another way to establish yourself as a DealDash Power Bidder is to show up and bid every single day. When you show up every day then the other bidders will get to know your bidding name. When they see your bidding name over and over again, day after day, then they will remember you.

Another added bonus to coming to DealDash every day to bid is that you will receive free bids every day, as well. That’s right, for every consecutive day that you come to bid on DeaDash they will give you free bids. Power Bidder or not, everyone could use free bids! Boost your bidding power by getting free bids from DealDash every day. It’s really a win-win situation!

The Seasoned Pro at DealDash

By “Seasoned Pro” I mean a player who has been actively bidding at DealDash since the beginning in 2009 or soon there after.  I’ve been playing about 2 1/5 years, and I’m still learning.  If you want to win like a pro at DealDash, you have to think like a pro, and that entails having some restraint. You can’t come in on your first day and pounce bids in after every player, you will soon be out of bids, and that’s just a waste of money.

The seasoned pro knows that you need to have a good amount of bids to win a big ticket item, well into the thousands, you may not use all of them, but you should plan on needing all of them if you “are in it to win it”, otherwise, you are just hoping you win a big ticket item with a few bids, does it happen? yes, of course it does, but you can’t count on it.  You can however, count on using a lot of bids to win an item over $1000 and some really popular lower value items as well.

Seasoned pros at DealDash have patience, you can watch an auction and know when a good time to get in is, for me it’s all about the odds, so if there are a few players in the auction, the odds are better, I’m in, and I’m playing with the best players on the site.  But, to have patience is a great seasoned trait.  You shop for just the right item, that means you don’t bid on everything in sight.  If you do bid on everything in site, have a  bundle of bids, you’re going to need them.

Most players are fair, some like to be rude, they aren’t doing anything wrong by jumping into an auction really late, it’s just not nice, and I see it often.  They can be outsmarted with their own game.  I find a good amount of seasoned pros do this.  It’s a jump fest and usually the same handful of players, so as soon as you know who they are, you’ll do well to conserve bids around their game.

The Seasoned Pro always buys their bids on sale, DealDash offers different sales throughout the week and often, usually once a week, you can find bids on sale for .12 cents each, and if you can bid during a Bid Multiplier sale, the combination of the two will maximize your bid count.

You can bid like a pro if you bid like one, use some restraint, have patience, load up on bids when they are on sale, and please don’t be rude, it’s not becoming!

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!

If You’re Not Binning, You’re Not Winning at DealDash

Binning is the most fair and honest way you can get all your bids back. DealDash has this very fair exchange system where, if you bid on an item and you don’t win, they will give you the bids you used trying back.  All you have to do is purchase the item at the fair retail price, and the bids you used are yours.

There are so many items on the site that you need everyday.  These are the most reasonable prizes to go after.  I say reasonable because, if you don’t win it, it makes sense to buy it.

There have been many times I have bid on items that I don’t want, then in the end, I didn’t win it either, that means if I don’t want it, and I didn’t win it….I get nothing. That’s why it’s so important to stay focused on the one or two items you really want.

DealDash is adding new items everyday, you don’t have to wait long to see the new stuff.  This is one of the most fun things about DealDash, it’s the shopping!  If you are going to bid, you need to find items you really want, bid on that item to the “BIN” amount.

The BIN (Buy It Now) equation is simply the cost of the item divided by the cost of bids, that leaves you with the number of bids to use before you buy an item.  So, if you have an item that is worth $80 and bids cost you .15 cents, the calculation is. 80./.15= 533 bids. Do not exceed 533 bids to purchase the item.  Now think about it, you go buy the item and you own it.  Now you have the bids too.

Binning is really winning. If you use the retail amount of bids and don’t win, you get your bids back if you purchase the item, now you get to go back to the site and try to win another item.  PLUS, you own the item you were trying to win.

You will win auctions at DealDash.  There are 100’s of players who win everyday. Check the Winner’s List on the DealDash main page, this information will let your know who is in the “house” and what the final prices are trending at.  For example, if you see all the auctions are closing for high numbers, the site is most likely crowed.  But, if auctions are closing at low prices, like .50 cents then it’s a really good time to bid!

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!

Skating on Thin Ice at DealDash

There is a super thrill when you start shopping at DealDash and you’ll wind up winning an amazing prize for a fraction of the cost.  That thrill will keep you coming back over and over, and you will definitely win at DealDash.  In fact, it’s so much fun to win, especially in the beginning, you’re going to want to try every single auction at once and stretch yourself too thin.

It’s not difficult to get “carried away” when you are bidding, you want to win them all, but what I can tell you, is you will win today, and you will win again and again.  You don’t have to go after every item right out of the gate, you’ll end up burning through too many bids at once.  You will have plenty of time to win again.

When you find yourself losing little auctions that you simply didn’t pay attention to, you will realize you are in the area of “skating on thin ice”.  It won’t take you long to realize you need to choose a few of these auctions and just let the rest go.  There is always the next one at DealDash.  You can  see how often they offer an given item by typing it in the search bar, that item will come up for the recent past, the present and the near future.  That is your guide to see how often they offer an item.

If the item isn’t listed again currently, it may have run its course or be scheduled far into the future, you may not see it today, but suddenly it’s back.  They mix up the inventory at DealDash all the time.  That is one reason why it’s so hard to resist bidding on many auctions at once.  Through my experience, I have seen that I win more auctions when I bid in less auctions.  The chances of making a mistake goes down too.

So, try to stick to as many auctions that will fit in your field of view.  If you are using your phone, that may be only one auction.  If it’s your computer, for example, I can see 12 comfortably, but I rarely bid in more than 6 at once.  In fact, I rarely bid in more than three at once.  I usually plan on winning, so I stay focused on my auctions.

You plan on winning too, but if you bid in too many auctions at once, you may not win as many auctions, so keep it simple, don’t skate on thin ice, and play safe….there is always the next one.
