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!
2. Make sure that whatever auction catches your eye and creates that sweet sparkle, make sure it’s something that you could really use or give as a gift to best friends wedding or graduations present for your niece. As long as you’re bidding on something you want or that could be useful, you’re safe – especially if you don’t win the auction! All items sold on DealDash are brand new and come with the Buy it Now option. This means that in case you don’t win it, you can “Bin it” (Buy it Now) and get all the bids you spent in that auction back to try again. We’ll even ship your item for free!

Knowing the average selling price can help you determine when it’s the best time to bid. On DealDash, the average selling price for the $1,000.00 Amazon gift card is $274.22. Keep this in mind next time you’re planning to bid on this gift card.

Deal Dash has been influential in my life; especially how it has allowed me to help get new clothes for my granddaughter.
Because my daughter is a single parent and children grow so quickly, it can sometimes be a challenge to keep up with their fast growth and continuously buying new clothes. I do my best to help out and therefore try to win gift cards to TJX, Gap, Macy’,s and her most favorite store.. Justice!
The savings I get on the gift cards by shopping on DealDash afforded me to buy her the warmest winter parka, extra jogging outfits, hats, and more. Since we live in the Northeast, kids need everything to be warm in the winter and clothes can be so expensive! Deal Dash has become my clever way to save money and give a little something extra to my granddaughter.
When I first started bidding on DealDash.com I took the time to stay the course and try to win. Sometimes, auctions would take a long time but as a Grandma, I’ve got a lot of patience and I will do anything to help out. I took the time to read the blogs and get bidding tips like Top Tips, Winning Strategies And Ways To Get Free Bids. By learning how to play and utilizing the opportunities DealDash offers, I was able to make some really great deals! For me shopping on DealDash has made a real difference in taking some of the financial stress off my daughter by helping out and taking my granddaughter shopping. Besides, what little girl doesn’t love new clothes?
Like most senior citizens, I am on Social Security so I am limited on spending. My granddaughter is 8 years old and understands the concept of Deal Dash. I must say she is one of the best dressed and of course always excited to see those gift cards! Thank you Deal Dash… but are you ever going to bring back the Justice gift cards? ;)
What is one new item you would like DealDash to put up for auction?
I have written in the past about the use of DealDash’s Bid Buddy system. It is a great tool, to win auctions.
However it is also a great tool to learn how and when other players bid. Over the past few months I have really watched the patterns that some players have, and I started all of this with the Bid Buddy.
As you know the Bid Buddy books automatic bids, so if you want to step away from an auction and still participate in the auction, you are able to. However I have began to use it for more than just that. Each auction has a countdown timer, as to when it will begin. It is important to pay attention to this timer. When it hits 10 seconds the auction is now live.
My secret is to enter my automatic bids as close to 10 seconds as possible. This gives me a point of reference in the auction. If I manage to enter my bids at 11 or 12 seconds, I should be the last automatic bidder. When my name comes up in the auction, it is fairly simple to tell how many automatic bidders there are which can be really valuable information.
If my first automatic bid comes up early (15 to 20 cents) I know that there are only a few other bidders that I need to beat out. If it happens to be between myself and another automatic bidder, I will jump on that bidder so that they use their automatic bids, and hopefully no one else enters the auction, and I can win. These are just suggestions, however they can be useful. Hope they are helpful when you’re planning your next penny auction bidding strategy on DealDash.com.
My Advice when bidding on penny auctions is to bid responsibly by not spending more money than you can afford.
Being responsible is expected with any kind of bidding sites as it is with gambling sites because in a sense, it is somewhat similar gambling. You have to set your limit and stick to it, otherwise, you will waste your money, time and resources and you won’t be having fun.
By setting limits, seek auctions that you would pay for out in the “real” world, auctions that have a Buy it Now (BIN) price that fits your budget. With DealDash, if you are bidding on an auction and don’t win it, you have the option to BIN it and get your bids back. It’s a Win-Win for everyone!

Another technique is to wait for the specials. I get emails on a weekly, sometimes daily, basis from DealDash telling me about discounted bid packages and holiday specials going on. Part of my DealDash bidding strategy is to buy the bid packages when they are on sale at 15 cents to save myself money and peruse the site for items I’m willing to BIN and wait for them.
I will watch the timer to see when they start and tend to pick the ones where there is less “competition”, i.e. the middle of the night based on my research. Personally I find these auctions are less crowded, offering me more opportunity to win with less bids and money out of pocket. How about you? What time of day do you find best for bidding?
A little about myself: I’ve been bidding on Deal Dash for about two years and really like it. I’ve gone to other sites but find myself coming back to DealDash because of the option exchange an item for bids when you win an auction and the option to buy it now and get your bids back if you don’t win.
