“THE STRATEGY i LIKE TO USE WITH BIG ITEMS THAT i WANT IS TO MAKE SURE TO GET A BID IN IN THE FIRST 5 MINUTES…THEN i’M NOT LOCKED OUT..THEN i KEEP AN EYE ON THE BATTLES, WHO THE PLAYERS ARE…i COME BACK EVERY HOUR OR SO, THEN WAIT UNTIL THEY’RE ARE JUST 2 PLAYERS, THEN IT’S TIME TO JUMP IN WITH A BIG PILE OF BIDS..EVENTUALLY ONE GOES, THEN IT’S 2man battle of wills”- Colleen
“Quit overspending for your item, when watching item wait until it is down to just 2 people, than start bidding”- Colleen
“Bid Buddy is important to use so you don’t waste and run up the final auction price.”-Dianne
“jumping in after 5 mins is like trying to steel something that they have already put alot of bids in.”-tim
“I always have a game plan and a plan for a plan going into auctions. Do not allow yourself to get bored or distracted by bidder bios. Get that 1 bid in before the auction gets locked and no more bidders are permitted. Be patient and observe whats going on and sit back and wait till you see a couple bid buddies going before you jump in. Good Luck.”-D Rutkowski
“I too place a bid in the first 2 minutes to make sure I can bid later. Then I keep checking on it until I see 3 players consistently bidding. Then I start bidding on it watching not to overspend.”-ojtigger
“What i have learned is bidding early in the morning or late at night has better odds of winning— the competition is not as fierce.”-Barbara
“just pay attention I’ve look ed away for seconds and lost”-justjill71
“I get too excited and start bidding too fast. Don’t do this. Jump in when you have watched the item you want and only a couple of people are bidding.”-Bobbie Dewolf
“I have to be very careful or I get carried away with buying bids and not winning anything.”-Linda Mitchell
“I wait to bid late in the evenings to bid. Good items have sold low in the late/morning hours.And it has worked for me thanks to bid buddy.”-Bid2Win75
“This is for the new bidders, before bidding on your first auction, watch a couple first to learn how it works and get a feel for the whole auction process in general. Then when you feel confident enough, place your first bid and remember to stick with one auction, don’t go placing bids on many different auctions as you will lose tons of bid very quickly. Patience is a key word in the auction world and if you practice this you will find it will pay off in the long run.” -lakergirl1
“I have been on Deal Dash for over 1 year and have got lot of nice things. I am also a gift card queen. Over 250 in gift cards. I agree with all of these tips. My tip is use the bid buddy and load and forget. I also watch when the auctions are running really high. I seem to win a lot of my things is early morning and around 430-5 pm eastern time. Also, if I spend a lot of bids and don’t win but like the product, I will buy and Deal dash gives me back my bids I spent trying to win. A lot of bidders do not like people who just jump the bids up and don’t use the bid buddy. We are all here to win , so play nice and have a happy win and holidays!”-wvajan
