In yesterdays blog post by Kim Finnegan, an experienced bidder who has been shopping on DealDash.com since September 2012 with over 150 auction wins, questioned the highly used BidBuddy DealDash currently has as an option for bidding. The BidBuddy is your automated bidding tool which allows you to plug-in any number of bids you have available on your bid balance and let the auction ride in hopes others will not bid and you’ll have that sweet taste of victory and lovely explosion of fireworks!
The BidBuddy will place your bid at the very final second of the auction while you sit back and watch or go on with your daily activities of work, sleep, play, or whatever requires your attention. Having your bid placed at the final second of the auction is a viable strategy as it conserves your bids while others place single bids, perhaps unaware your BidBuddy is locked and loaded. Don’t take the word “locked” the wrong way, you can cancel your BidBuddy at anytime and all the unused bids will be deposited back to your bid balance and can be used again at anytime. One can also add more bids to the BidBuddy as well without having to cancel and re-book as shown in this lovely and colorful snippet of the BidBuddy Box.
So the BIG question Kim asked is… Should BidBuddy Be Required? These are only the results gathered so far since the question was asked yesterday, July 8th, however so far the results are split fairly evenly.
What do you think about the BidBuddy? Should it be required or does it take away from the bidding fun?
