Bidding on low value items is something I really enjoy. I started bidding on DealDash a year or two ago and saw some high value items selling for pennies on the dollar and thought to myself, “Wow, Christmas has come early!”
So I started bidding on them only to realize through losing many bids in very little time that I should let others bid the price up and jump in later in the auction. After a few missed opportunities, I decided another tactic and that was looking at the lower valued items because they seemed to end quicker and were not as expensive. It wasn’t long before I started winning $10 items and when I went to cash out, I was given the opportunity to either trade it in for bids or get the item. Being that I wanted to keep bidding, I would trade it in for bids to get more items I wanted on the site. It seems to be working for me because I win occasionally with this technique and have fun at the same time.
Keep this bidding tip in mind. Penny auctions aren’t for spending your last dollar, they are for enjoyment and winning items is just a plus to go along with the fun.
I’ve been bidding on DealDash.com for about two years and really like it. I’ve gone to others but find myself coming back to DealDash because of it’s ability get your bids back when you don’t win an auction with the option to buy it now.
