Have you ever been in an auction and realized that you are so far in over your head you will be paying WAY more than an item is worth if you win it? Then BIN it!
Here’s a little riddle for you: What’s worse than losing an auction? Winning an auction and paying more than the retail price! Okay, that was a terrible riddle, but it really is a terrible sinking feeling when you realize that you “won” the auction but overbid by more than the BIN (Buy It Now) price.
If you want to avoid that horrible feeling, it’s easy! You just have to do a little bit of DealDash math. All you have to do to keep your head above water when bidding is calculate how many bids will equal the BIN price before the auction even starts. After you have figured out the magic number of bids that you are willing to put into an auction to get to the BIN price simply put that amount of bids into your BidBuddy. Of course, this only works on a day when they are having free auctions, if it’s a regular day and you have to pay the final auction price, then you must also calculate that in with the price of bids.
Once your BidBuddy has run out of bids and you aren’t willing to put in any more bids into the auction then it’s time to use the trusty BIN feature that DealDash offers. Just hit the “Buy It Now” button, pay the retail price that is listed on each auction, and you will receive all of the bids back that you spent, get to keep the clock time that you accumulated while bidding, and get the item very quickly in the mail with free shipping. It’s win-win-win-win!
I hope that instead of feeling sad about mis-spent bids that next time you take advantage of the BIN feature that DealDash offers and get all of your bids back to try again on another auction. Pay attention to what you’re doing, check out the auctions ,and use your BidBuddy. See you on DealDash everyone! Good luck and happy bidding.
