Tips for Dealing With Other DealDash Bidders


Have you had a little bit of trouble with other bidders since you started on DealDash? Not to worry, DealDash can help you with a few tips and tricks to get along with the other bidders.

Bidding on DealDash is fun and exciting, but sometimes you might get into little tiffs here and there with the other bidders. Not that you’ll really know, anyway, since there is not a bidder chat feature. I personally think that is a GOOD thing. I can only imagine some of the things that people might say to each other! Here are some ideas to keep on the other bidder’s good sides. Why not? Keep it friendly!

Don’t Stomp, People. Just Don’t.

If you were to ask other bidders what their pet peeves are, “Stompers” and “Jumpers” would be at the very top of the list on DealDash. What are Stompers and Jumpers, you might wonder? A Stomper picks an auction, and rather than bidding politely and waiting for the timer to go down to 2 or 3 seconds they bid immediately after a person, therefore cheating the person out of their “clock time.”  The Jumper is someone who waits until the auction has practically reached the $5 No Jumper limit and places their first bid, usually between $4.50-$5. This is also true when DealDash runs their “$3 No Jumper Limit, as well. The Jumper will wait until the auction has reached $2.75 or so and then jump right in.

Don’t Over-Bid for Fun

Are you the sort of bidder who stops bidding when you have reached the BIN limit? Great, keep doing what you’re doing! However, if you’re the sort of bidder that keeps bidding on and on and on, even after the auction has reached the BIN price, that’s not a good way to get along with other bidders.

Have you ever been in an auction that ended for twice the amount of the BIN price? This happens fairly often in gift card auctions when it’s a Half-Price or Free Auction Weekend promotion. It’s very aggravating to the other bidders, and no one will thank you for it. It can sometimes backfire on you as well if the auction ends unexpectedly and it’s NOT a Free Auction Weekend. Of course, these are just my personal suggestions, please feel free to bid however you like on DealDash – they are your bids to use as you like. All bidders, rude and polite, love to bid on DealDash.
