Tips to Deal With Not Always Winning


Unfortunately, we don’t always win every auction. Here are some tips to get you “back in the saddle” for winning another auction.

The old adage is “you can’t win them all”, and that is true in life as well as DealDash. But there are hundreds of auctions every day on DealDash, so there are tons of chances for you to win. Here are some tips and tricks from the DealDash Tips Blog to get you back on track to winning more auctions.

Explore Your Possibilities

When you’re on DealDash it’s important to explore the different auctions. Expand your mind and explore all of the different categories and items that are up for auction. There are currently 9 categories on DealDash, and this is something that changes occasionally as DealDash expands and changes things around on the site. Here are the categories that are currently offered:

  1. New Items
  2. Bid Packs
  3. Bundles
  4. Electronics & Computers
  5. Fashion, Health, and Beauty
  6. Gift Cards
  7. Hobbies, Toys, Outdoors, and Games
  8. Home, Garden, and Tools
  9. Kitchen and Dining

No matter what kind of items that you are interested in winning, you’ll be able to find something that you’re interested in on DealDash. However, if you’ve been trying to win a particular item with no success, take a break! Bid on something else, try a different category. Explore and educate yourself on all of the different categories.

Take a Peek Into the Past

If you’ve been having trouble winning an auction, then check out some of the items that you won previously. What kinds of items were they? What time of day were you bidding? Was it on a holiday or a particular day of the week? See if you can spot some similarities in your previous wins and try to replicate them again and see if you can snag yourself another win.

Having previous wins is a great way to try and repeat your success, but if you are a new bidder and don’t have very many wins to compare, then you can always check out the “Winner’s Tab” on DealDash. Just navigate to the main page, and click the tab at the top that says “Winners”. This will take you to all of the wins on DealDash, starting with the most recent. You can scroll back indefinitely (as far as I know), once I scrolled back to the previous day. It’s really an invaluable source of information to take advantage of that DealDash offers anyone who cares to look.

BIN if You Don’t Win

If you are planning on purchasing any of the items that you are bidding on in a DealDash auction, then you’re a great candidate to do a BIN (Buy It Now) if you don’t win. DealDash offers the BIN on all auctions on the website. To complete a BIN, just pay retail price for the item and you will receive all of your bids back. You’ll receive your item, all of your bids back, and get to keep the clock time that you accrued while bidding, as well.
