When I started on DealDash over a year ago, I admit I was flying by the seat of my pants ! I see alot of that going on today, only this time , it’s not me. It never fails that I will get into an auction where I have set my bid buddy and in jumps a bidder who thinks they have to bid one second after your bid posts. Those bidders are usually “newbies” and haven’t learned the advantages of setting their bid buddy.
Just because you set your bid buddy, doesn’t mean you are not watching the bid progress. I set my buddy all the time then flip between my active auctions, adding bids when necessary to remain in the hunt for the item I am bidding on. Bid buddy allows everyone to retain their place in the auction, while allowing you and others to accumulate high bidder time to win Free Bids !!
I encourage EVERYONE to use your bid buddy. Some of my best wins have come while using my bid buddy. Trust me you will not be disappointed. If you see there are multiple bidders in your auction, you can cancel your bid buddy and watch for a while till the bidding slows, then jump back in. Just know that using your bid buddy helps everyone and saves you in the long run.
