You joined Deal Dash, bought bids and are ready to go, Whoa…wait a minute.
Have you bid before? If not here are four Deal Dash bidding tips to keep in mind.
Bidding Tip Number One: Watch Before Bidding
Watch a few auctions before you join in the bidding. See how different bidders play, when they bid, how frequent they bid. You will need to figure out your own strategy once you start however watching the auctions before bidding is important.
Bidding Tip Number Two: Start Bidding On Small Items First
I would suggest you start with a small value item, like a gift card. Search the gift card category for a card you could use and bookmark it. The item will then show up on both your home page and under bookmarked auctions on your Dashboard.
Bidding Tip Number Three: Determine Your Total Costs
Be sure to determine how many bids and how much cash you are willing to spend, without going over the retail cost of the item before you start bidding. Remember your bids cost money too. Your cost for an item is not just the final sales price it is the combined cost of your bids used and the final sales price. This is important to keep in mind when Deal Dash offers “50% off” or “Free deals”. That is when bidders seem to go wild with using more bids then they might have otherwise.
Bidding Tip Number Four: Let The Frenzy Die Down
When the bidding starts, enter 1 bid and then watch what is going on. At the beginning of any auction there will likely be a lot of bids entered in rapid order, you need to let the frenzy die down a little. When there are 3 or 4 individuals bidding in sequence consider joining in. Just keep in mind what you determined the most you will spend on bids and cash. Try not to get caught up in the craziness of bidding as that will get you in trouble and you will spend more money both in bids and cash.
