The Most Challenging Auctions To Win On DealDash

 

Apple iPad Air DealDash

I have been bidding and winning on DealDash since September 2013. I have enjoyed the time spent and the thrill when I win. There are a few items that are the most challenging auctions to win on DealDash so if you are going to join the fray, you better have lots of bids and lots of time. Here are a few items I recognize as hard to win on DealDash.

Gift Cards

$500 Walmart Gift card – Average selling price on DealDash is $190.67

  • I have tried to win this $500 Walmart gift card on many occasions without success and believe this is a difficult auction to win. It’s a “One-Per-User” auction meaning you can only win this particular item one time. You can bid on as many times as you want and use the BIN (Buy it Now to get your bids back) however once you win it, that’s it, you can’t bid on this item again. Generally any gift card over $200 whether it’s a gift card for gas, home improvement, or Amazon; they are always in demand so you better plan if you try for any of these.

Computers, Laptops & Tablets

Apple iPad Air with Wi-FI 16GB Silver – Average selling price on DealDash is $115.40

  • Computers, laptops and tablets are popular and always bring a lot of bidders. To have a chance at winning these, it will take time and patience. Most of these items are also “One-Per-User” auctions, however there’s a variety of different types of computers, laptops and tablets available to bid on. Keep in mind the “One Per User” only applies to a specific model. So for example, someone could actually bid to win a “One-Per-User” Apple iPad Air 16GB Silver and they could also bid to win a Apple iPad Air 16GB Space Gray. Why? Because these are technically different auctions because they are a different color. A different color technically makes it a different item.

This may seem strange, but even the $10 Burger King gift card can be a difficult auction to win. I have seen a $10 Burger King gift card auction close at almost the value of the card itself. Three recent auctions have closed at $9.95, $9.79 & $9.05. Add the cost of the bids used for each of these and you know the winner has paid more than $10; if they actually paid for the gift card to have it shipped. Another option when you win a item is to not pay anything and simply exchange it for some extra bids. Although I’m surprised to see this auction close at such a high price compared to the value, I have won this card twice. Both times I used Bid Buddy and left the computer to do other things only to come back and see I won!

My suggestion to DealDash would be to close the auction on these high value items earlier than the $5 No Jumper limit. This lessens the pool of bidders giving each of the bidders a better opportunity to win. If these items are “One-Per-User”, you can also check to see who won the auction previously to help with your bidding strategy.

Also, remember Bid Buddy (it does help) and keep an eye on the number of bids you have and make sure you enough when you try for a high value item.

    I agree that bidders should NOT be allowed to win more than one Kitchen Aid mixer just because it is a different color. I believe this is one of the most difficult auction items to win and I would be thrilled to win it in any color. I have tried many times to win the Kitchen Aid mixer without success, so I pretty much gave up and seldom bid on it anymore.

    There is more to be said about ONE PER — USER AUCTIONS. If there is any difference such as color, that is a different auction. For instance, you can win a KitchenAid mixer in every color and it’s allowed. Personally, I think this should be stopped. Also, if any part of the description is different, that is also allowed. Another great example is the 2000 and 5000 bid packs. When DealDash runs the special where you can buy it now for 20 cents per bid, that is a different auction can be won twice.

    Remember one thing on the one per user auctions: If there is any difference such as color, that is a different auction. For instance, you can win a KitchenAid mixer in every color and it’s allowed. Personally, I think this should be stopped. Also, if any part of the description is different, that is also allowed.

    Very good article. Thank you. And I totally agree with the $3.00 limit. It makes DealDash far more fun, keeps prices down and you seems to make the time shorter. Many of us just don’t have the time to spend hours in front of an auction. But we still want to play….and win!
