There’s something to be said for trying different strategies on DealDash. I have found that nine times out of ten, I bid the same way and the same days and times when bidding on DealDash. Lately, though, I’ve been trying to shake things up a bit. One of the things I have tried is to bid out of my normal times. Here are some suggestions I’ve come up with for odd times you can try bidding to increase your chances of winning.
- Early Morning Hours – Keep in mind that DealDash is for customers in the United States only. Having said that, you still have to be aware that there are three separate time zones to deal with. If you’re on Eastern Standard Time and it’s midnight, this might be “early morning” for you, yet it’s only 9 p.m. on Pacific Standard Time.
- Travel Hours – I have found some success in those hours people are likely in their cars traveling from work to home either to or from their jobs. Thankfully, this may also equate to people not being busy on their phones while driving. When they’re concentrating on driving, you can concentrate on winning.
- Sunday Afternoon – Even though this, like most times, is hit and miss, I have also found some success on Sunday afternoons. Maybe it’s because folks are getting their family suppers ready or maybe they are just taking a break, but it’s certainly worth it to give this time a shot.
- In the Middle of the Night – I can’t tell you how many times I have simply decided to “take a chance” when I woke up in the middle of the night and randomly placed a few bids on an item—and won! As they say with the lottery, you gotta be in it to win it!
I like to consider different times to bid by asking myself, “How busy am I right now and if I’m free to bid, what are the chances the majority of other bidders are available to bid?” This gives me a personal gauge as to whether it’s an “odd time to bid.”
Good luck and happy bidding on DealDash!
