Tips and Tactics to Help New Bidders Win on DealDash.com

Bidding and winning on DealDash is easy, and many bidders are able to win auctions with their first bid pack purchase. But some new bidders have more trouble, and there can be many reasons for this. Some people aren’t familiar with pay-to-bid auctions and don’t understand how to conserve their bids, others don’t know how to navigate the site and find themselves lost amongst the hundreds of products available to bid on each day. Here are a few pieces of wisdom that many veteran DealDashers have found to be vital tools in their quest to win those big ticket items that everyone loves!

Tip #1: – Do Your Research Before Bidding

The temptation to immediately jump into an auction as soon as you visit the site for your first time can be overwhelming. There are so many great products, and they often sell for just a fraction of their retail value. But the key to getting those big discounts is knowing how to win the auction while conserving your bids. Anyone can win an auction if they’re willing to use unlimited bids, but nobody who approaches the auctions with this mentality saves money. Big savings means getting the most out of the bids you use, so you need to use your head. Before you bid on an item, visit the auction page while logged out of your account. You’ll be able to see the average selling price of the item in the auctions at the top of the screen, and so you can get an idea about how long auctions will run for and how much competition you can expect in the auction. Information like this can help you make a budget and plan out how you want to use your bids in the auction.

Tip #2: – Higher Value Items Need More Skill

Some auctions attract more interest from bidders, which makes them more competitive. And while this isn’t always something determined by the value of the items, it is a good rule of thumb that more expensive items will attract more interest. If you’re new to pay to bid auctions and want to get the most out of the site, try sticking to some lower value items. There are lots of lower value items that are just as great to win than the more expensive ones (winning 4 $50 Amazon gift cards is the same as winning one $200 Amazon gift card). It’s a great way to learn the ropes and get some experience and wins under your belt. Once you start to get a feel for winning, it’s easier to apply what you’ve learned to the more competitive auctions.

Tip #3: – Concentrating Bids is Smarter than Spreading Them Out

Some bidders don’t keep track of where their bids go, and overtime this turns into a bit of drain. There might be a few reasons why bidders do this: some people do to much “browse bidding” and will just place a couple of bids while they’re looking through the open auctions. Other people might be bidding in auction, take a break and do something else, and then come back and bid on a similar product in a different auction. Whatever the reason might be, the result is the same: bids being wasted in auctions that the bidder won’t stick with. When you choose to bid in auctions, you should ask yourself whether you want to be in it to win it! If the answer is yes you should really focus on it: watch the auction, remember to bookmark it, research the product AND the other bidders. Not only does concentrating your bids in fewer auctions give you more bids to win the stuff you really want; it also means that if you lose you can use the “Buy it now” option and get all the bids you used in the auction credited back to your account.

  1. One comment I have for new bidders is that when they jump bidders the only thing they are accomplishing is driving up the price of the item, while at the same time using all their bids while the more experienced bidders just wait for them to use up their bids. It takes practice to develop strategies….

    1. Hi Barbara,

      That’s great advice! Jump bidding might seem like a good strategy to inexperienced bidders, but the truth is it drains bids and raises the item price. Not such a great way to save money, especially in the early stages of an auction when there are more bidders.
