DealDash does everything possible to make it easy for their players to win, but there is no guarantee you are going to win. It’s the nature of the beast. You’re thinking for all the bids you entered, you should have won but you just didn’t. You have hit the wall! This is the time to reevaluate your playing strategy.
This is the first time you hit the wall, and you don’t like it! I don’t like it either, but what I’ve learned is you can’t win them all, in fact, if you win 25% of the auctions you enter, you are doing pretty well. If you aren’t winning 1 in four, then it’s time to rethink your the way you place bids. If you are poking one bid into a bunch of auctions with the thought of returning later but don’t, take a look at how many of those “one bid” you place, they add up and distract from your success rate.
It really doesn’t matter what happened yesterday, today is all that matters. Take a deep breath because a “loosing streak” could last days! It happens to every one. Now, after thousands and thousands of bids, I realize I was the problem! I get in my own way once in a while, I can’t help it. I just revert back to a “newbie” way of bidding and then scratch my head….what?!
So, what did I do wrong? Number one mistake, not planning ahead. You can shop for hours and days ahead of time, yet occasionally I will just jump right in without paying attention to what is coming on the market and who is in the auction? Then suddenly, I realize after I have placed 200 bids “xyz” is playing and he’s always over bidding!!! I’m not doing my homework! I call this “Bid- Crazy”, you can easily get bid crazy and not even realize it until 500 bids are gone! Don’t let this happen! Get a hold of yourself. Step away from the computer or phone. Now, take your time to shop, after all , that’s why you are here! It takes patience to win and you really need to pace yourself.
Now, you have a grip, come back and take a look at the field, you know what to look for, who is playing? What are prizes going for? Who’s at their limit? How long has the auction been running? You can do this!
Ok, now you have all your ducks in a row, go ahead and bid! Decide not to fall into the traps, 1. you can’t stand this player, you’re going to beat the pants of them, you will overbid instead of walk away. 2. You thought this was going to be an easy win and then after 200 bids you still have not won…you should have walked away but you let the win rule you. 3. You have a ton of bids so you place them on your favorite item and then went on to other auctions, suddenly the auction ended and you lost, the other guy won because he was paying attention, you weren’t. It’s that simple. Do no over extend yourself.
So just when you thought you had this down-pat you started losing, reevaluate your strategy, and pay attention to your auction, I can not stress how important that is. You have won many auctions before and you will win them again and again!
Fortunately, DealDash has a generous reward system in place, if you don’t win an auction, you can purchase the item and get ALL of your bids back! Not only that, every bid you place adds to the timer on a reward- for- bidding meter. So no matter what you have a parachute at DealDash!
