An important, often overlooked tactic for saving money on DealDash is to take full advantage of the different pricing options available through the promotions. You can almost always get bids at a huge discount by buying while they’re on sale: more than 80% if you buy at the right time! These promotions are almost always running, so it’s important and really not too difficult to capitalize on these great savings and leverage the benefits into more (and bigger) auctions wins. Not only can you save money, but often the rules governing the auctions will change during promotions, which gives bidders the opportunity to apply their strategies in new ways.
Cheap Bids are only part of the Savings
One of DealDash’s recent promotions, for example, reduced the cost of bids to 12¢ each. Buying bids at 12¢ each is equal to getting 5 bids for the price of 1. The benefits of this are pretty clear, but how exactly to leverage this benefit into your bidding strategy might not be so apparent. Some users might take the discount but not really change their approach to bidding, but leveraging the discount into a bidding strategy can help you win more auctions. The freedom to place 300 bids in an auction as opposed to 60 is a real benefit these discounts offer, as these extra bids can help you utilize more bidding techniques (such as relying more on the BidBuddy). Not everyone will buy bids during a certain promotion, so you shouldn’t assume that the other bidders are able to bid as freely as you. Remember, you’re bidding against other people, and a good bidder will focus on how to beat bidders and not the clock!
Special Auction Rules are an Opportunity to Win
You also need to keep in mind how special rules implemented during promotions can change the way bidders can or cannot bid. For example, during DealDash’s recent President’s Day promotion, auction winners were given 50% off the final price of their auction wins. A promotion like this not only reduces your costs by offering cheaper bids, but it also lets auction winners pay less for their products. To make the most of these savings, it makes more sense to take the opportunity to try and win bigger items. Auctions featuring big-ticket items (things that cost over $200) tend to be more competitive, so using those cheaper bids to take advantage of the bigger discount gives you a unique opportunity to really go for the big wins!
Budget Before Bidding
But the most important way to save money, and again this is something overlooked by many bidders, is to set a budget and stick with it. You can find lots of information about how much certain products go for by browsing through DealDash’s website, and you can always search through upcoming auctions or search for specific products to help you plan ahead. This doesn’t mean that you can’t be spontaneous about the auctions you bid in, but it does mean that you should plan whether or not you want to leave some extra bids to do this. Many successful bidders emphasize the importance of strategy and planning ahead, so don’t hesitate to spend some time looking through DealDash’s website. Winning bigger and better bargains is always worth spending the time, and don’t hesitate to leave your own tips in the comments!
