Bidding Advice 101 for DealDash Newbies

DealDash Tactics and Tips

One of the most frustrating things about bidding on DealDash is the “Newbies”. A newbie being a bidder who has joined Deal Dash within the last few days or weeks. So here are a few tips to help the brand new bidder.

1. READ the tips and info on the Dealdash site called “How it Works“. Knowledge is a powerful tool so learning all you can first will make you a more successful bidder. I read everything I could on the site. If I see you haven’t even written your Bio and collected those 3 free bids, then you haven’t read any bidding tips on the website.

2. CLICK on the auction to open it. This way you can see how many bidders are in the auction. You can see your Bid Buddy, plugs in bids as you need to and determine by watching, who is using their Bid Buddy. It will saves you from wasting yours and others bids.

3. — USE your Bid Buddy!! Can’t stress that one enough. Learn how to utilize your Bid Buddy. I have won many auctions by plugging in a few bids and letting them bid automatically. You won’t always win but you will never know till you try. I won my Yamaha 5.1-Channel Home Theater Speaker System valued at $350.00 for $0.37 using this method!

4. DON’T stomp, especially if you are a newbie! I just watched an auction where two newbies traded bids with each other for several minutes. Now I know you have not read any tips ! If you had you would know their are probably 4 or 5 others bidders, sitting back, watching you waste your bids knowing they have their Bid Buddy plugged in with several bids, just waiting for you to stop. If you had plugged bids in and watched, you would have let the timer run down and observed how many bidders were using their Bid Buddy because the bids are plugged in when the timer reaches 9. I gotta be honest, I never see a stomper win and all you really succeed in doing is raising the final price and many times, keeping the auction open longer, allowing more bidders to jump in.

Just allow yourself some time to gain the knowledge needed to be a more successful bidder on DealDash.com and hopefully save yourself, and others, money!

    I’m a newbie who just spent (gulp) 100 bids for a $25 gift card and still didn’t win.
    I used the bid buddy from the beginning and just kept adding 5 bids at a time. I got to 10% of the BIN price, but it was 50% off; so I kept going until it was really 10% of the the BIN. Then, I stopped for a bit, thinking that maybe things would slow down once it got to the “no more bidders” $5 rank.
    I wish that it was possible to set the bid buddy, so that it would start or stop at these key amounts.
    Thanks all,
    Linda
