Every once in a while you learn of a player who just goes wild! They must win at all costs! The best thing to do with this player is let them win and forget about them. You can fight them until you are blue in the face, but you’re not going to win. This player is willing to overbid by thousands of bids and that equals hundreds of dollars.
The good news about these players, and I’ve seen this over and over. They suddenly leave and don’t come back. At some point they realize they are obsessed with winning and someone at home probably snapped them out of it.
I remember a player who won a dozen KitchenAid Mixers, he could have gone to the store and purchased them for a fraction of what he paid, but his good news was he won them for sure! He lasted a few months and I haven’t seen hide nor hair of him in months and months.
This type of activity happens in every category. It doesn’t have to just be the mixer. Here are a few other items that people are obsessed with winning: High Value Gift Cardst, cell phones, computers, video games, toys, new items (caveat except the first day) High ticket items (over hundreds of dollars), unusual kid items and some furniture.
That being said, everyone of those items can be won for just a few bids if the right pool of players is in the game. You must get to know who is bidding in every category. I recently broke into the gift cards and I never used to bid on them. There is an entire culture of it’s own in the gift card category.
Some of these players don’t bid on anything else, well, except maybe bid packs. I have found bid packs to be so competitive too that if you are involved with them you can just about guess who will come and who will go in any given hour.
No one wants to lose, but sometimes it’s better to lose than lose your shirt. I have learned that the hard way. Yes, I get into bidding wars, but I know my competition and if I’m battling with them, it’s because I think I can beat them. If I try and don’t get anywhere in a reasonable amount of time, I will bail!
It’s not rocket science to be a winner on DealDash, but there are a few golden rules.
- Know you competition in any given category
- Don’t get in a bidding war with an over bidder
- Be willing to walk away from an auction
- ALWAYS remember every bid you place at DD rewards you with free bids

Any way you can get over to DealDash, just do it. Buy your bid pack, I suggest a 1000 pack. You can really cash in on prizes if you have enough bids to win it. Watch the auction!!!!
