DealDash has a generous exchange policy. You can win an item at DealDash and exchange it for an amount of bids which you can use for another auction. Sometimes that can be very rewarding. I have won some of my favorite prizes that way. You can parlay a small win into that one item you have been trying for.
You want to go for the big prize, but you just don’t have enough bids, the best thing to do right now is bid on the small items and trade them in for more bids. This is not always the best strategy, but if you are trying to win that one big item on a budget, this could be the best way.
There are a wide variety of items for sale on the DealDash site that sell for a low final price, and you can find them in every category. Research the final selling price of a item listed on the auction page, not every item has the final selling price listed, but the items with the most value and the widest range on winning price do. Additionally, items with a value less than 200 tend to have less players.
Once you win the small auction you can trade in the prize for bids, then save your bids and go for the big one. This is really similar to going after bid packs. Except bid Packs are very popular, so going after them can be challenging. At times, going after small prizes may be the best option simply because there are less people in the auction.
Before you start this stategy, do your homework! Calculate the average selling price, see what other items are going for on the Winners Review Page, get to know the field of players when you are ready to begin, see who’s out of the field by utilizing the “Who’s at their limit?” tab on your Dashboard.
You’ve done your homework, now it’s time to buy the bids you plan on using to parlay to a larger prize, and most importantly, use your Bid Buddy! There is no sense in trying to parlay into more bids if you are going rogue at the same time. This is also a good time to stay focused on one auction. You may be tempted to get into several small auctions, but this will spread you too thin to pay attention to the task at hand, winning!
Tip: Stick with a category you are familiar with, although it doesn’t matter what the item is you’re going after because you are trading it in, it helps to know the category.
DealDash has worked hard to build a site where you don’t have to go away empty-handed, so with some planning and wise bidding, you can get the prize of your dreams with a parlay!
Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!
