Five DealDash Resolutions You Should Make in 2019

I’ve been DealDashing for years now and there’s one thing that really helps me re-set myself as a successful auction winner and that is taking a look at how and why I bid and making a few New Years resolutions to get more wins. Here are my top five resolutions for 2019.

 

  1. Re-evaluate What You Bid on

I used to bid on anything and everything. Not only does it take up time, but it takes up bids. Taking a look at the things I really want to win and bidding on those items helps me to focus on the things I want most. If I really want to win an item, I will commit to the win more than if it is an item I know I’ll exchange to bids.

 

  1. Try New Strategies

Are you a bidder who bids early right from the start of an auction or one who hangs back a bit until starting your bidding? Do you wait until there are just a handful of bidders before deciding to give it a go? Whatever your typical method of bidding, try something new in 2019! As an early bidder, I tried different ways of bidding, which I will admit was a bit foreign for me, but it ultimately opened    me up to new wins! Give it a try!

 

  1. Bid Different Days and Times of Day

If you’re a creature of habit with your strategies, you likely bid he same days of the week and times of day. This means you’re also bidding against bidders who   do the same so you’re likely to be bidding against the same bidders. My rule of     thumb is this: if I’m bidding when I’m free to bid (nights, weekends) when I have time off, it’s likely others are doing the same. Try bidding during the day, early morning or late evening for a change of pace.

 

  1. Go for a Big-Ticket Item

Nothing ventured, nothing gained is my policy on big ticket items on DealDash. Take a chance on a painting, electronics or even a brand new car! If you don’t take a chance, you will never know!

 

  1. Read and Watch

If you’ve never checked out the Tips & Tricks or Blog sections on DealDash, you’re truly missing out on some helpful tips and ways to win. Whether you need a refresher on how DealDash works or just need to familiarize yourself with bidders and their habits, there are many tools on DealDash that will help you get a leg up on winning.

 

Do what works for you in the new year and consider making some DealDash resolutions! Here’s hoping your 2019 is filled with some great wins on DealDash!

Less than 30 Days Until Christmas! Tips for Holiday Shopping on DealDash

My granddaughter went to the calendar just the other day to count the number of days before Christmas. She then proceeded to excitedly tell me there were only 38 days until Christmas—however, upon the recount, I discovered she had counted incorrectly and there are actually less than 30 days to get my shopping done, wrapped and under there tree. If you’re cutting things close, here are a few tips and tricks for DealDash bidding to get you to your goals:

Have You Made a List? Checked it Twice?

Getting things down on paper is a great way to get your shopping organized and started. Who are you shopping for and what types of items available on DealDash would they most love?

Bookmark Your Wish List Items

Once you have a wish list together, use the bookmark feature to have those favorite items put toward the top of your page when you’re on DealDash. Bookmarks also mean you will receive an email notification as a reminder before the auctions go live.

Competition Amps Up This Time of Year

You’re not the only one looking to get a bargain on DealDash this holiday season. Bidding amps up before the holidays so prepare yourself with more bids, a great strategy and patience.

Check Out What’s NEW on DealDash

Under the large banner on the main page, click on Browse Categories and use the dropdown menu to choose New items to see what awesome new items are going up for auction on DealDash. Keep checking back for amazing finds to add to your holiday gift list!

Keep the Focus

Remember all those awesome DealDash auctions you want to focus on and took the time to bookmark? Go to the My Dashboard icon at the top right of the page and you will be re-routed to a list of items under that heading. Scroll down and click on Bookmarked auctions and it will only display only the items you have bookmarked. This way you can focus on only the auctions you have previously bookmarked.

BidBuddy Really is Your Best Friend

BidBuddy literally does the bidding for you so you can do other things (like watch your favorite holiday movie on TV or wrap presents). You can also browse and check on other auctions frequently and not worry that you will miss a bid.

Here’s hoping your holidays are merry and bright and that you get some great holiday wins on DealDash!

Five Key Steps to Winning When Multiple Auctions Start at the Same Time on DealDash

DealDash has been running some pretty awesome promotions lately and end-of-the month clearance sales when multiple auctions start at the same time are a whole lot of fun. If you’re a bit overwhelmed by so many auctions starting at the same time (50 or more!), here are a few helpful hints to keep you level-headed and focused on the win.

shutterstock_595953725

 

Step 1: Preview the Auctions

Take a look all the auctions that are due to start at the same time. Along a great mix of new items, you’ll oftentimes you will notice old favorites you may not have seen in a while so now is the time to bid because you never know when you will see them again.

 

Step 2: Set Bookmarks & Alerts

When you find the auctions you’d like to bid on, bookmark them and set alerts as reminders. Bookmarks will move the auctions you choose to the “front of the line” and they will appear first on your main page in order of auction time. Setting alerts allows DealDash to email you when the auctions are starting as a reminder.

 

Step 3:  Set Your BidBuddy

 Using BidBuddy allows your bids to be placed at just the right moment in the auctions as well as being able to set your own bidding limits. You can get on with life—whether that’s browsing the auctions or making dinner. BidBuddy really allows you to bid with confidence.

 

Step 4: Another Key Tip About Multiple Auctions

With multiple auctions starting at the same time, you may see an increased number of bidders. Some may want to place a handful of bids in each auction in the hopes of taking a chance and scoring big. My advice is to choose the auctions you really want to win and focus on winning those. I try to limit myself to five to ten auctions max and then place my bids with BidBuddy. I usually throw in a few extra bids because I know there are more people bidding in these types of auctions.

 

Step 5: Practice Patience

If I could give one key piece of advice on DealDash—multiple auctions or not—it would be this: practice patience. You will deal with multiple bidders. Just carry on. Know that your willingness to demonstrate staying power amidst other competitors sends a clear message: you’re here to stay. Hang in there, be patient and know that win or lose, you’re likely to see the item you want up again for auction soon.

Good luck and happy bidding on DealDash.

Know Your DealDash Promos 101

There are a ton of ways to save money on DealDash, the best way, of course, is snagging a great win at a low price. With so many promotions running on DealDash  it’s important to know not only the different types of promos, but identifying the ones that work the best for you. Let’s get started on your DealDash Promos 101.

 

Great Prices on Bid Packs

This is first and foremost, the best place to start and one of the best ways to save money. Look for low prices on bid packs and stock up when the pricing is at a premium.

 

No Jumper Auctions

Generally speaking, no new bidders may enter the auctions to bid after the bids hit the $5 mark. On special days, however, this bidding mark will be lowered to the $3 mark, which means no new bidders can enter the auction once it has hit $3. This sometimes helps to lower the number competing in the auction which may get you closer to the win. In these types of auctions, you may also see several bidders enter before the $3 mark to return later on.

 

Increased Time as Highest Bidder

Instead of earning up to 10 seconds for each bid you place, you will earn up to 2x or 3x (or more) time as the highest bidder for each bid you place depending on the promotion. If it’s a 3x as highest bidder, you would earn up to 30 seconds for each bid you place as Time as Highest Bidder. This helps your Time as Highest Bidder clock fill up faster—and once that clock hits its mark, you reach the next level and earn more free bids!

 

50% Off and Free Auction Wins

These type of promos focus on final pricing of the won auctions. Instead of paying full price for a won item, you could be paying half of that with a 50% off auction or just a penny to cover processing for free final auction pricing wins. That’s great news, especially for big-ticket items. Sometimes the competition during these promos is a little higher, but the end result is worth it.

 

Daily Winning Limits

Occasionally DealDash will offer daily limits of five wins per day, which can sometimes be the perfect time for new bidders to try their hand at bidding. It’s also a great idea if you see that one-of-a-kind item you’ve had your heart set on pop up in the auctions.

 

One-Per-User Auctions

On these types of auctions, you will see the number “1” inside a yellow rectangular box icon located at the top left hand side of the auction photo on the main page. This indicates that each bidder may only win that item once. These auctions are great for new bidders who want to try their hand at competing for a higher-priced item.

 

No-Exchange Auctions *NEW*

This type of auction is new and very exciting! These items may not be exchanged to bids, making them a great win for someone who really wants the item! You know some of your competition may be eliminated by those who would have otherwise tried to win the item to exchange it to bids.

 

With so many promos, it’s easy to see why DealDash is one of the best bidding sites available. Once you narrow down the best promo days to bid, you’re one step closer to the big win!

Good luck and happy bidding on DealDash!

NEW on DealDash: No Exchange Auctions!

DealDash is bringing you a new exciting feature we’re sure you’ll love. Keep an eye out for a new auction category we’re launching today: No Exchange Auctions!

Untitled design (5).png

What does ‘Exchange to Bids’ mean?

Most of you DealDashers may be already familiar with our ‘Exchange to Bids’ feature. For those of you who’ve never heard about it, here’s what it means.

When you win an auction you have two choices:

1) Buy the Item for the auction winning price
2) Exchange the win for an offer of bids in place of the won item

The bids available to exchange for each item may change and are based on the value and popularity of the item won. The ‘Exchange to Bids’ option is a way of getting extra free bids for bidders who would rather have more bids in their balance than have the item they won shipped to their address.

Introducing ‘No Exchange’ Auctions

At DealDash, we’re always looking to introduce new features that make our customers’ experience as fun and exciting as possible. That’s why we came up with a new auction category: No Exchange Auctions!

The name is pretty self-explanatory. There will be no exchange to bids offer presented for the winner. This auction category will be launched today, April 17th, as a special promotional twist, with 10 ‘No Exchange’ auctions being run throughout the day. We’re sure that these auctions will be a lot of fun!

In order to find no exchange auctions, just head over to DealDash and look for auctions with this icon:
