Oops I Did it Again…On DealDash!

DealDashNo one is perfect, and that includes bidding on DealDash. Here are some things you might want to avoid while bidding.

Do you want to avoid DealDash mistakes? We all would! This blog article will take you through some of the more common DealDash mistakes, and how to avoid them. What mistakes do you see people making while using DealDash? Do you have any ideas how to avoid them so you don’t make the same mistakes? Read on for more information from DealDash.

Don’t Jump In too Late

A  mistake that I see people often make on DealDash is entering an auction when it has almost reached the $5 No Jumper Limit. Now, this is completely allowed, of course, but I still think that this is a strategic mistake. Why? Because if they auction is down to just 2 or 3 people and it has almost reached the $5 No Jumper Limit then those few people feel kind of an “ownership” over this particular auction and probably won’t let it go without a fight.

I have seen many people say that they will overbid past the BIN (Buy It Now) because they know that the person who just joined the auction will most likely bid for a while. Bidding past the BIN price is risky, but some people just can’t resist trying to rack up more “clock time” with the TATHB (Time As The Highest Bidder) perk.

Not Letting Your Buddy Help

Do you use the BidBuddy in each and every auction? You should! The BidBuddy is there to help you win against your competition, why wouldn’t you use him? By using the BidBuddy, you have the best chance at winning the auction.

The BidBuddy is just as easy (if not easier) to use than single bidding. Simply fill him up with as many bids that you would like to spend on an auction and let him work his magic. Don’t make the mistake of not using the BidBuddy – he’s free and available to use on every auction.

Don’t Throw Away Your Bids! Use BIN!


While there is always a winner in each and every DealDash auction, it won’t always be you. If you try to only bid on things that you would normally buy at the store such as clothing, then you can BIN them if you don’t win. BINning an auction just takes a click of the button. After you’re done bidding and would like to BIN the item, just click the “Buy It Now” button, and after you have paid you will receive all of your bids back in your account. In addition to that, you’ll get free shipping on the item as well.

    I usually always bin my cards and products, I had to do that last week. But rather or not the late jumpers did or not, I am not so sure of. I believe they took it with a right good savings. So as you say it is dangerous to be that late jumper cause people like myself will take it as far as possible. If I am going to be forced to buy, so shall some others, while I take it to the distance and beyond. I am here to shop, so the best advice I know of is to be prepared to buy what you are bidding on.

    1. I agree with you, late jumpers are usually “punished” by those who have been in the auction for a while. That’s why I always advise against it, but not everyone listens 🙂 Thanks for reading and writing in! -Dawn

    Another great strategy is to enter one or more bids on the items you want to bid on before the auction even starts so you don’t have to wait for your item to start. That way when you get home or wake up in the am, you can see which items are worth adding bids to for a possible win.

  3. Hi there! I see that today is a “50% off auction wins” day – So that means that if one of those people won the $25 gift card at a price of $35 then they would pay a final auction fee of $17.50. So depending on how many bids that they spent on the auction, they could still be getting the gift card for less than $25. However, I have seen people bid up to and over the face value of a card on a regular day as well, so I am guessing in that situation the 2 bidders are trying to “prove” something to the other 🙂 But that’s just my guess! Thanks for reading and writing in. Good luck! Dawn
