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!

Strategies for Today’s Promotion: No New Bidders After $10

DealDash usually gives its bidders some great opportunities with No New Bidders After $5 on a regular day and frequently offers the No New Bidders After $3 promotions, but today they are offering an unprecedented No New Bidders After $10 promotion. This is exciting news for several reasons and here are a few key strategies to navigating this promotion.

Watch and Wait

If there’s an auction you know usually runs high on bidding, you can watch and wait and decide to get in on the auction later than normal—much later! Where before you would need to get in on the auction before $3 (during special promotions) and $5 on a normal day, now you can get in later and potentially save yourself some bids.

This strategy requires patience. Try not to wait until the bids are down to two people because in my experience, many auctions end suddenly with three, four or even more bidders previously in play. Sometimes auctions end quickly with no “down to two” warning.

 

Get in Early and Stay the Course

Even though the watch and wait strategy is one anyone can use, I would always recommend getting in on the auctions early and at least starting off to see which bidders fall off quickly and which remain. There’s always a chance that a popular auction will end quickly and you’ll be in the mix to snag a great deal. Backing out of an auction is always a gamble. You have to assess if you are willing to take the chance.

 

Browse Other Auctions & Take a Chance

The No New Bidders After $10 auctions allow you to browse upcoming and ongoing auctions and perhaps get in on an auction that you may not have considered. Maybe there’s an auction that looks like it might be winding down and you’re willing to place a few bids to see what happens. You never know! Plenty of auctions have been won by placing just a handful of bids.

 

BidBuddy is Your Best Bet

Using BidBuddy on DealDash is always the best way to go. Place your bids before or during the auction using BidBuddy and you will have time to check out all the other auctions without missing a bid—and while staying within your bidding budget.

While No New Bidders After $10 may potentially mean there will be more bidders in any given auction, you just never know. Here’s hoping you keep your eyes out for the best auctions and get the greatest wins today 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!

How Using BidBuddy on DealDash Saves You Time, Money & More

When people say that BidBuddy is your best friend on DealDash, they aren’t kidding. For those of you who may be new and are not familiar with BidBuddy, it’s a great computerized bidding tool that for you at just the right moment in the auction’s bidding process.

Picture1

All you do is set the number of bids you would like to place in any particular auction on DealDash and BidBuddy does the work for you—placing each bid at just the right moment so you never waste bids. Here’s are some of the great advantages of using BidBuddy:

Perfect Timing

BidBuddy places your bids one by one at the last few seconds in your bidding place until all your bids run out or you win the auction. If you’ve ever tried to “sit” with your auction and place your bids one by one yourself, you know it can be exhausting and time consuming. BidBuddy takes the guesswork out of bidding.

Set it and Forget It

Just like a slow cooker, there are hug time-saving advantages to using BidBuddy. You literally set the number of bids you want to place with BidBuddy on any given auction and walk away if you choose to. If you’re going to do the latter, just be sure to set the maximum number of bids you want to place in the auction.

Avoid the Stress of the Competition

I will admit that I tend to stay with my auctions as they are happening. I like to check in and keep an eye on things, if you will. I also sometimes have a bad habit of pulling my bids from an auction if I am watching it in order to save my bids until the number of active bidders dwindles a bit. I can’t tell you how many times this has not worked out for me. What I have found in this “save your bids” type of bidding mentality is that it’s best to set my bids through BidBuddy and literally walk away and go do something else.  This strategy works out far better in the long run and I have returned many times to my computer to find I have won the item!

Whether you’re a new bidder or an experienced one, BidBuddy, simply put, is the easiest and most effective way of bidding—bar none. It saves you time, money, stress and worry and allows you to take a break from the action while BidBuddy does all the work for you.

Good luck and happy bidding on DealDash!
