Winning Tips

No matter how long we have been shopping on, we can never learn too many winning tips.

Many times, winning auctions might just boil down to bidding in the right auction at the right time. Nonetheless, the more winning tips we know the better. One of the most important tips I could give to other shoppers would be to have patience.


When shopping on DealDash, we might do a lot better if we simply have patience.

When I have a difficult choice to make, I usually draw a line down the middle of a plain sheet of paper and place a header on each side — “Good” and “Bad.” Then I proceed to list the good things versus the bad things that could result from my decision. When I’m done with my list, I look at which side has the most positives or negatives. That usually makes my decision much easier.

We could approach DealDash auctions the same way, by listing the “good” things we know about an auction and the “bad” things we know about the auction. It might look something like this:


  • All of the main power bidders have already won and are now blocked from competing in this auction.
  • On average, one out of every three times, this auction sells for less than $10.00.


  • One of the active bidders is listed on the “Winners’ List” and just won a $2,000 bid pack.
  • Two out of every three winners used more than 600 bids to win this auction.

If I look at this, I would choose to wait until this auction comes up again. To find out when this auction will come up again, all I have to do is put the name of the auction in the search bar at the top of the home page. Then I can check “Alert Me” so I can bid on it again the next time it goes up for auction.

Having a little patience could make a difference if we win an auction for $5.00 or $500.00.
