Are you a flexible shopper on DealDash.com?
What do I mean by that and why does it matter? Good questions.
When flexible shoppers open the DealDash home page, they are usually open to placing bids on anything that looks like it might close at a bargain price. Flexible shoppers may also end up winning more auctions for the following reasons:
- They can choose to only bid in auctions with the fewest number of competitors.
- They can choose to only bid in auctions that have no power bidders.
- They can choose to only bid in auctions that show they are closing for the fewest number of bids and the lowest selling price.
Let’s look at a few examples:
A knitted pillow with a Buy It Now price of $109 closed on 12/2/2018 at only 18 cents and 5 bids; and again on 12/4/2018 it closed at 36 cents and 11 bids. When this auction reached the $5 “No New Bidders” mark, it only had 23 competitors, so it appeared to be an easy win.
A high-end quality pen set with a Buy It Now price of $360 closed on 12/7 for 9 cents and only 2 bids; and again on the same day for $1.73 and 15 bids. When this auction reached the $5 “No New Bidders” mark, it only had 33 competitors, so it appeared to be another easy win.
A beautiful, high-end blue and white silk necktie with a Buy It Now price of $280 closed on 12/2/2018 for only 22 cents and 6 bids; and on 12/5/2018 it closed for $2.42 and 32 bids. When this auction reached the $5 “No New Bidders” mark, it only had 16 competitors, so it also appeared to be an easy win.
Flexible bidders are free to choose the auctions they feel make sense bidding on. If you are a flexible shopper, go for it!
