Tips to Save Bids on DealDash

Do Not Waste Bids

By Barbara

To shop on we must have a nice supply of bids, and we can get them three different ways:

  1. Purchase bid packs
  2. Win bid packs
  3. Earn free bids

Regardless, how we get our bids, the last thing smart shoppers want to do is to waste the bids we have, but I am sure we all have done that at times. Most of us have probably heard the quote by Benjamin Franklin, “A penny saved is a penny earned.”  In this case, a bid saved is a bid earned. Therefore, to successfully shop on DealDash, we should not waste bids. Bids costs money and if we waste bids, we waste money.


Here are some rules to follow to get the most out of our bids and make them last longer:

Always Buy Bids on Sale

At the beginning of every month, we should figure out how much money we can afford to spend on bids. Then wait until the bid packs go on sale at the lowest price per bid and purchase all of our bids for the entire month. When our bids run out, we know we are done shopping until the next month.

Never Bid When tired

Do not bid whenever you are too tired. Whenever I am tired, I get lazy and do not do everything I can to save bids or bid smart. It is easy to place a large number of bids into the automated bidder, BidBuddy, but that is the lazy way of bidding. If we want to save bids, we must be actively engaged in the bidding process of all of our auctions. If we are using bids when there are five or more active participants, chances are we are wasting bids. To save bids, we must be willing to watch the bidding process so we can delete our bids when it makes sense and add bids when it makes sense. If we save most of our bids until the auction gets down to the last two players, chances are much better that we will have enough bids left to win the auction.
