Tips to Staying Positive – Losing on DealDash


Everyone loses sometimes, and it’s important to stay and stay positive even when you’re not winning. Here are some tips from DealDash to help.

We’ve all been there – we begin bidding in an auction, and there are only a few people. You see that the people are new when their bidding bios pop up as they bid. “Oh, this will be easy,” you say, “I’m sure to win.” However, the people keep bidding, and other people keep joining, until there are now 25 different people bidding on this auction. You’re now feeling less and less confident by the moment. We’ve all had this happen to us, and believe me, it’s no fun. However, this isn’t the end of the world. There will be other auctions, and you will win bigger and better things in time. Here are some tips from DealDash to help you through the rough spots.

There’s Always BIN (Buy It Now)

In the above situation that I described there are basically two courses of action – drop out of the auction and lose your bids, or do a BIN. A Buy It Now is the wisest way to use your money and bids on DealDash. With BIN, if you have bid to many times and are still not going to win the item you can purchase it at the retail price that is listed on the auction page. After you have paid you will have all of the bids that you spent on the auction returned to your account. If you’re bidding on an auction that you’re really interested in having, and if you’ve bid close to the purchase price, it only makes sense to do a Buy It Now on the auction.

Remember That There Will Be Other Auctions

DealDash often has the same products available to win every few days or so. And in some cases multiple items of the same kind every day. If you’re losing an auction and you haven’t invested too many bids on it, then maybe you should just bow out, walk away, and find a similar auction the next day. You can easily do a search for anything that you would like to bid on in the search bar on the main page. There are very few things on DealDash that will never show up again. Typically the same items are offered, however, if there is an item that you’re really interested in and you don’t see it in the upcoming auctions, feel free to email DealDash customer service. They do their best to put up items that they know that the bidders are interested in.
