What is DealDash, Exactly?

DealDash is a shopping entertainment website that runs on a “pay to bid” model. Basically, this means that to participate in a DealDash auction, you need to buy bids first. You can buy bids in different amounts. It’s easy and fun to win great prizes and get awesome deals on DealDash, so why not get started now?

Buying Your Bid Pack

DealDash has bid packs with different amounts of bids to choose from. You can pay for your first bid pack in a few different ways, using a debit card, credit card or even with your Paypal account. When you buy bids they are credited immediately, and you can jump on in the action. Bids are the currency that is used in the auctions on DealDash, so you don’t want to be caught without any bids to spend and some exciting auctions coming up on the roster.

Get to Know BidBuddy, ASAP

The BidBuddy is available to every bidder, free of charge. You don’t need to download anything extra or purchase anything special to use the BidBuddy. You can use it in every single DealDash auction. To use the BidBuddy just open up any DealDash auction that you’re interested in bidding on. In the middle of the screen, you will see a space and a button that says “Book a Bid Buddy”. Click on the space that says “add bids here” and put in the number of bids that you are willing to spend on this particular DealDash auction. Then hit enter.

You can put in any number of bids from one to as many bids as you have in your bid bank. Also important to note, you can also cancel a Bid Buddy at any time and all the bids will go instantly back into your account. The BidBuddy is the best way to win auctions on DealDash.

Will You Win or Will You BIN?

When an auction ends the last person to bid is the winner of the auction. If you aren’t the winner of the auction and you have placed at least one bid you are eligible to do a “Buy It Now” or “BIN” on the auction. When you BIN the item for the retail price you get ALL of the bids back that you placed, as well as getting free shipping. When you don’t win an auction, BINning is the next best option.

Are You Making These “Boo-Boos” on DealDash?

DealDash.Everyone makes mistakes, we’re only human. Here are some suggestions to minimize your DealDash boo-boos.

No matter how long you’ve been bidding on DealDash, or what sort of bidder you are, everyone makes mistakes. There are few mistakes that you can make on DealDash that will make a huge impact on your life, since DealDash offers the Buy It Now or BIN option. With that in mind, let’s think about some DealDash mistakes. Read on for more information.

Buy It Now – BIN

Buy It Now, more commonly known as BIN, is really a lifesaver if you make a DealDash mistake. If you happen to make the mistake of getting a little carried away and bid more than your limit, BIN is there to save you. You won’t lose a lot of money or bids because of a little mistake, because you can easily get all of your bids back by doing a BIN.

BINning an auction simply means that you agree to pay the regular price for the item and after payment, you will receive your bids back from DealDash. You can do a BIN in any and all auctions, as long as you placed at least a bid before the auction closed with a bidder.

Don’t Mistakenly Break the Rules

Most people can go their whole time on DealDash without breaking any rules. However, you don’t want to make any mistakes that will break the rules. There are not many rules, but the ones that DealDash has implemented are important, and you should be sure that you have read them. For a full list of the rules, just click this link right here.

Once you have read all of the rules and understand them, then you won’t make any mistakes. If there is something that you’re unclear on regarding the DealDash rules, no problem! Just contact customer support by clicking the “Help” link on DealDash. From there, you can either send in a request for support by email, r even live chat with a customer service representative.

Don’t Bid Hungry

Bidding when you’re hungry or tired is a DealDash mistake you should avoid. Having a quick snack or nap before you bid is a wise course of action if you want to avoid costly mistakes on DealDash. You might also want to avoid bidding when you’re distracted or upset. All of these things can translate to mistakes when you’re bidding.

Luckily for you, though, there is an easy fix for this mistake. If you’re feeling tired, hungry, or upset, then you should think twice about bidding. There is a solution for this mistake that you can use. His name is BidBuddy! The BidBuddy is a great tool that DealDash gives to all bidders to help them.

The BidBuddy is a breeze to use. Just put in however many bids you want to spend on an auction, click “Book a BidBuddy,” and go on about your business. You can cancel the BidBuddy or add more bids whenever you like. Your BidBuddy will alternate bidding with the other BidBuddies that are in use until there are no more bids placed from BidBuddies or other bidders. The BidBuddy will save you from making many mistakes on DealDash.

Get to Know the Competition With the Winners Tab on DealDash

It’s no secret that DealDash provides a plethora of tools for the everyday bidder to succeed. There’s the Tips & Tricks section, user blogs, social media connections and my favorite—the Winners Tab. With a little guidance, I’ll walk you through all this great tab can do for you.

The Winners Tab is located on the bar just above the large banner on the main page of DealDash. It is just below and to the left of the Dashboard tab. Click on it for some great information on your competition.

First, a word about the competition.  There are so many types of bidders. You have experienced bidders who have been on the site practically from the beginning. Then you will have the mid-level bidders who win now and then. And of course you have the newbies who are learning the ropes. No matter what type of bidders you are up against, you still have a chance to win!

The Winners Tab provides the following information:

  • Usernames of the winners of every auction for the past 24 hours. *approximately
  • How many bids each winner used to win each item.
  • The ending price of each auction won.
  • The average cost for each won item (using a 12 cents per bid approximated cost).

 

DealDash

 

Here’s how I use the Winners Tab to assess my competition for the day:

When I am in an auction, I like to use the Winners Tab to search for the usernames of those I am competing against in any given auction and here is what I look for:

Multiple wins over 24 hours.

If the person I am bidding against has won a dozen or more auctions over the past 24 hours, I usually take that as a sign that they are on a “winning streak.”

My assessment:  I generally don’t shy away from these types of bidders if it’s an item I really want. I may watch the auction and enter a little later than I normally would and still stick to my bidding budget.

Number of bids used to win

If a bidder uses an excessive number of bids to win a small item, I view this as a bidder who is willing to win at any cost—even if it means overbidding and overspending. Naturally, larger and more expensive items will require more bids to win, sometimes hundreds or thousands, but I tend not to go overboard on smaller items.

Assessment:  You never know if the person bidding is almost out of bids because they just overspent on their last win. It never hurts to try. You never know; luck could be on my side.

Ending price vs. Number of Bids Used

If you see a bidder who has an ending auction price of $10.00 but they only used 50 bids to win, chances are their strategy of jumping in on the auction late paid off for them. Oftentimes these types of bidders will place a few bids in the beginning of the auction, disappear and reappear when there are only a few bidders left in the auction.

Assessment: Although this can be a frustrating tactic, it’s also one that doesn’t always work out for the jumper. Standing your ground is sometimes all that is needed. Based on experience, I’ve also been in a number of auctions where the jumper only places a one or a few bids and that’s it. I stick it out—at least for a little while.

The Winners Tab provides a lot of information, but there are so many factors that go into winning. Experienced bidders don’t always win and new bidders don’t always lose. While there is a certain level of awareness, patience and yes, even luck, involved, there is no exact science. You can use the tools to your advantage but you never know how many bids a person has or doesn’t have, how much time or how many bids they have available to invest or if they are willing to win at all costs. The only way to win is to try and sometimes try again!

Happy bidding on DealDash!
