You want to win more items on DealDash, right? You want to get just half of the deals that some bidders are getting. Well, take advantage of these 3 bidding tips if you want to become a better bidder and win more auctions!
1. Bid with Bid Buddy!
Did you know that you can bid without actually bidding? Wait, does that really work!?
Technically you would be bidding, but you don’t have to spend time sitting and watching an auction. DealDash has a bid buddy feature on every auction item, this means all you have to do is set the amount of bids you want to place on an item and tell it when to start bidding for you and it will automatically bid near the end of the auction timer on each auction. Genius, right?! Well, you do have to be careful because sometimes others are also using bid buddy and you will be bidding against them and won’t always win on it, but you really could. Bid Buddy vs single click bidding. When you’re bidding with the bid button and waiting until the last 2-1 second of the auction timer you could lose. Bid buddy bids for you and gets your bid in every time before it hits 0. It’s easier to trust the bid buddy than to miss the bid button when you’re watching an item.
2. Bid before it’s too late.
Ok, so this one may seem obvious. Ever notice an auction that you really want to bid on but when you try to bid it says it’s closed to new bidders? This is because DealDash has a feature called “No Jumper” on every single auction. Once an auction price hits $5.00 (sometimes less depending on the promotion. Like right now DealDash’s no jumper auctions are set to $3.00, so once 300 bids are received the auction is restricted to bidders who have bid in the last 300 bids. If you didn’t place one of those bids it’s too late for you to try and you will have to watch for another upcoming auction for the item you want. Just watch out and remember this if you want to bid! If you want to participate just place a bid early on, sit back and watch and then start when you feel like bidding. Just don’t miss out!
3. Buy it Now!
Buy it Now – so you want the item you are bidding on but you don’t win (this often happens) you won’t win every item you bid on, really – unless you really have deep pockets and get lucky it’s really hard to predict winning. So – after you bid and spend money bidding and you don’t win, how can you recoup your bidding costs? You can use “buy it now” when you buy an item you pay the stated price on the auction bidding area and you will get all of the bids you placed back into your bidding account so you can try to win next time. The good thing is you won’t be out your money, just have to pay the retail price and you will get the item shipped to you free of charge!
