Improve Your Odds of Winning – 3 Things You Can Do

Did you ever wonder what you could do to improve your odds of winning more auctions on

To improve your odds of winning on DealDash, here are a few points to take into consideration when bidding.

  1. Looking at how many serious bidders are in the auction can help you improve your odds of winning. You could be better off waiting for the same product to come up for bid again when the competition might be much lower. Customers often place only one bid at the beginning of the auction and never come back. I double click on the auction item so I can count how many serious bidders have placed bids into the automated bidder, BidBuddy. Obviously, if there are only a few serious bidders you will improve your odds of winning in that auction compared to an auction where there are a dozen or more serious bidders.
  2. Improve your odds of winning by becoming familiar with DealDash bidder screen names and avoid bidding in the same auctions with the most heavy-handed bidders. I pay attention to screen names and I have a list of bidders I avoid like the plague. If they jump into the auction after I am already there, I often cancel my bids and get out as soon as possible. Why? Because I know I will not improve my odds of winning if I compete with customers who consistently over-bid and drive the closing cost up.
  3. Avoid bidding with couples with double screen names, such as AnnplusAndy (just an example made up screen name). I noticed that couples and grandmothers tend to be some of the most consistent and worst over-bidders. Perhaps they share incomes or have more time and money to splurge.

These are a few ways to improve your odds of winning more auctions on DealDash! Another recommendation to improve your odds of winning is to read more helpful articles on sites like this, DealDash Reviews and DealDash Tips.

    I absolutely agree with “The Three Things You Should Do.” I wish I had known these when I started, but I think I had to experience some of these situations to really know they mean. Example: getting caught up in an auction where it has become obvious there are several BidBuddies involved. I’ve lost a bunch of bids like that. Practice, and reading tips really helps!

    Very good tips. I am new on DealDash and have already noticed the serious bidders. I will try your tips and hopefully will help me become a better bidder and be able to win some things I want !!

    Hey Synonym, thanks for the useful tips. One question… in tip #1 you mention double clicking on the item to see who’s loaded up their bid buddies. How do you see other bid buddies? Or are you talking about the little picks of bidders? Only problem with that is everyone who’s bidding doesn’t always show in that area. But thanks.
