Top 4 Secrets of a Successful Bidder

If you’re just getting started with DealDash you might be interested in learning my Top 4 Secrets of a Successful bidder. Read on, but keep it a secret, shhhhhhhh.

Secret 1 – Watch, don’t bid…YET. If you’re new to DealDash you might be amazed at some of the awesome deals that people seem to get purely by chance. The bidders might make it look easy to win a Nooka Zem Zoo Night Steel Watch valued at $325 for just $2.23, but I can almost guarantee you the winner of this auction watched and studied many Nooka watch auctions before deciding to bid on this particular one. For example, if you were to look up the upcoming Nooka watch auctions you might want to pick a few offered at different times of the day and see what time the watches tend to end. Morning? Evening? Late night? Take your time, study, watch, then bid!

Secret 2 – Use your BidBuddy. If you have just signed up for DealDash and haven’t used the BidBuddy yet I strongly encourage you to give it a try. It’s really simple to use, each auction page has the bid button that says “Bid Now” and the BidBuddy, which is below the bid now button. Click your mouse on the white area and enter the number of bids you want to use and click “Book a BidBuddy” your BidBuddy will now be set and you can even turn off your computer and the BidBuddy will take care of everything. The BidBuddy will bid up to the number of bids that you booked, and you can adjust that number up or down anytime that you like. 95% of the auctions that I have personally won have been using the BidBuddy.

Secret 3 – Don’t spread yourself too thin. I personally suggest not bidding on more than 2 or 3 auctions at a time, especially if you are actively bidding on them and not using your BidBuddy. Auctions can change so quickly, going from 5 active bidders or more down to the final 2 in a matter of moments. If you miss your window to jump into the auction you might not get your chance because someone else might be seeing the “Congratulations!” on their screen while you are still scrolling through the other auctions that you are interested in.

Secret 4 – Get free bids by posting photos on social media. After you have won and received your auctions you can get free bids by just taking a photo of yourself holding the item and posting the picture on social media with a quick message such as “I got this -name of item won here- @DealDash for -number of bids used- bids & $ -final auction price-. I love it! #DealDash also gives #FREE shipping!” Here’s a link to get the full details on how to get even more free bids, it’s easy to do and is a great deal.

I hope this helped some of you newer DealDashers! If you’re interested in reading even more tips and tricks check out the “Tactics & Tips” section on DealDash. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!
