I have talked in the past about knowing certain bidders in the DealDash world. You know when you see them, and it’s likely you do not stand a chance when they are bidding because they will not give up, and may actually end up winning for more than the item is worth – just to get the win.
However, it is also important to be aware of who is online when you are actually bidding. One of the strategies I use is to scroll through a few auctions, and see who is online and bidding. I also scroll through the winner’s page and see if any big bidders have won anything recently. This lets me know who I have to contend with.
One can also go to their dashboard and view the “Who’s on their limit” section. Although it will cost you 1 Bid to show the list, this let’s you know who has reached their winning limit for the week and if they have reached their limit of items valued above or below $200.00. This can sometimes be useful when you’re watching for people you don’t want to bid against.
Here’s a partial list of who has reached their winning limit. This was activated today, September 19th.
Knowing how is online when bidding is also a factor in the big auctions that I enter. Normally I try to go into them when the big winners have already won them, however if I do not see the big winners active on the site I will go into something that they have not won. This doesn’t guarantee a win, however it does make me feel like I have a chance to win. When I see some of the big winners in the auctions I know that I do not stand a chance. So this was just a quick bidding tip to help you with your bidding strategies, and hopefully your winning. Hope you liked it!

We’re going to review a few auction bidding tips you should always consider when bidding in the auctions on DealDash.
1. Always buy bids on sale: as you may know there are a variety of different promotions and sales happening almost every day. When you need to stock up on more bids make sure you know when the next sale is coming up (you can see this from the main page on DealDash.com) and try to buy them whenever the price hits 15¢ per bid. If the price ever drops below 15¢ per bid, you better stock up because that’s rare!
