Let’s Not Make These Mistakes on DealDash

DealDash newbie mistakes

There’s no “right” way to bid on DealDash, but there are definitely some wrong ways! Avoid some common mistakes with these tips.

If you are a new DealDash bidder, don’t worry, it’s really easy to get started on DealDash with very little “hard thinking” to do. However, there is a little bit of thinking and planning to do if you want to put your best foot forward and start winning auctions. You’ll need to do a little thinking ahead, planning, and making strategic decisions to avoid making some common mistakes. Here are some ideas and tips from DealDash to help you.

Don’t Get Overwhelmed

Being a new bidder on DealDash can be a little overwhelming. There are so many different auctions, bidders, things to learn, and blinking lights that it can get a little confusing at first. Don’t worry, there are some things that DealDash has implemented to help out new and old bidders alike. The easiest way to not get overwhelmed is to have a firm game plan when you are using the website. Stick to your plan, bid with thought, and be prepared. Those are all things that you will need to keep in mind to help yourself not get too overwhelmed when using DealDash.

Make a Plan, Set Alerts

When you first start bidding on DealDash, a big mistake would be to just start bidding on anything and everything, regardless if you’re really interested in it or not. The best way to avoid this mistake is to set alerts on the things that you really, really want. It’s easy to set an alert on DealDash.

Look through the future auctions (or do a search) on DealDash, and find some that you are interested in bidding on. If there isn’t a starting time listed it means that this is a product that DealDash carries, but there isn’t an auction for this item scheduled yet. You’ll need to set an alert for this auction, don’t worry, it’s easy to do! Just click the button that says “Alert me” and DealDash will send you a quick email when they have scheduled an auction for this item. Easy!

Don’t Be Afraid to BIN an Item

Do you know what BINning an item means? To BIN means to “Buy It Now.” When you BIN an item, you simply pay the retail price of the item and you will get all of your bids back! Yup, it’s that easy! When you have decided that you’re not going to win a particular auction, just stop bidding and hit the “Buy It Now” button. After you’ve paid the retail price for the auction DealDash will immediately credit your account back with all of the bids that you spent on that auction. They will then send out your item with free shipping and tracking (unless it’s a gift card), just like you had won the auction. It would be a huge mistake not to BIN an item that you have lost.

Sometimes You Just Need to BIN

dealdash bin

DealDash loves its customers. You can tell by the amazing features that they offer such as Buy It Now (BIN).

Do you love the BIN feature on DealDash? You should, because Buying It Now is a really great option when you’ve invested way too many bids on an auction. Winning the auction is the point of playing on DealDash, but in many auctions, there will be a person who wants the item more than you do. This person will outbid you to get it.

What Does Buying It Now Mean?

BIN is a feature that DealDash offers to every bidder in every auction. This is also known as “Buying It Now.” With BIN, if you have bid to many times and are still not going to win the item you can purchase it at the retail price that is listed on each and every auction page, and have all of the bids that you spent on the auction returned to your account.

When Should I BIN?

Knowing when to BIN an item is an important skill to learn. You always want to do your “DealDash Math” before you enter an auction to see how many bids that you can spend before you reach the retail price.

Once you have hit the number of bids that you have previously calculated and you still haven’t won the auction, that’s when you know it’s time to throw in the towel and BIN the auction. Don’t think of it as a loss, though, because you will get every single bid that you spent returned to your account when you BIN the item. You will also get free shipping, no matter how large or small the item is. Free shipping is the other feature that DealDash offers that really puts them on a higher level than their competitors.

I hope that you found this new DealDash article on Buying It Now helpful. Another way to learn more DealDash information is to read the DealDash Reviews blog and our sister blog DealDash Tips daily. There is always a wealth of DealDash information to explore. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

Loving Your DealDash Experience

loving DealDash

DealDash’s goal is to have everyone love their experience on the site. Here are some ideas to get the most out of it.

If you’re a newbie and you haven’t been having a great experience on DealDash, you might not be using the site to the fullest extent. It’s hard to consistently win auctions if you don’t know what you are doing, and that’s where the DealDash Blog comes in to help. We want you to love DealDash and have a great experience every time, even if you don’t win, and the way to do that is to learn everything about DealDash that you can!

Being an Excellent Bidder

How can you learn to be an excellent bidder if you’re new to the site? There is an easy answer to that, and it is to watch the more experienced bidders in the big auctions. Even if you’re not planning on bidding on a larger auction such as a TV or video game system you should still watch some of those auctions as they are happening.

By watching the more experienced bidders in the bigger auctions you will get a much better idea of how to develop your own bidding style. When you’ve decided on a bidding style that you would like to use, then it’s time to start bidding in auctions yourself.

Choosing the Correct Auctions to Bid On

Before you start bidding you’ll need to purchase a bid pack. The bid packs range from around 50 to 2,000! After buying the bid pack you can figure out exactly which auction that you would like to enter. You can start with an auction that is currently in progress, as long as the final auction price hasn’t reached the $5 “No Jumper Limit.”

You can start with an auction that is currently in progress, as long as the final auction price hasn’t reached the $5 “No Jumper Limit.” You may also choose to enter an auction that is happening in the near future by loading up your BidBuddy with the appropriate number of bids to reach the BIN (Buy It Now) price.

Choosing an auction to bid in is one of the most fun parts about DealDash! Personally, I would suggest starting off with a gift card auction. That way if you have reached the BIN (Buy It Now) price you can simply buy the gift card for the regular face-value, receive all of your bids back, and also get free shipping. It’s a no-risk auction when you bid on a gift card that you would have purchased anyway such as a gas gift card.

I hope this article has encouraged you to learn more about DealDash. You should definitely check out DealDash’s “Tips & Tricks” section on the site.

Small Wins on DealDash

DealDash small wins

There are hundreds of winners on DealDash every day, and many of those wins are under $200. Here’s why small wins are good.

Smaller wins on DealDash are a great thing. They can be easy to achieve, and no less exciting when they happen. The fireworks are just as bright, sparkly, and exciting to see for a $20 win as for a $200 win, in my opinion. The simple act of winning is enough to put a smile on my face.

Small Wins Are Easier

Are small wins are easier? You bet they are! There could be 50 bidders in the running for a high-value item such as a computer, but usually fewer bidders in the running for the smaller auctions, sometimes you might only be bidding against a few other people. As we all know, the fewer bidders there are in a DealDash auction the higher chance you have at success.

Small Wins are Better BINs

As you probably know, DealDash offers the BIN “Buy It Now” option on all auctions. If you participate in an auction and don’t win, then you can always BIN (Buy It Now) and get the item, free shipping, and all of their bids back to use on another auction. It’s much easier on your budget to BIN a lower valued item than a higher valued item. DealDash realizes that not everyone has the extra cash available to BIN an item that costs $1,000 but most people can BIN an item that is under $100, so they frequently offer items that have a lower value, which equals many more opportunities for a small win.

Small Wins Make Nice Gifts

DealDash is the perfect place to pick up small wins throughout the year and use them as gifts for birthdays and holidays. Sometimes it’s difficult to think of a present to give someone, so why not build up a collection of small wins from DealDash and keep them for the next occasion? There are so many smaller items available on DealDash that it would be very easy to get a few small wins per week and have gifts for your whole family whenever you need them.

I hope this article has you thinking about striving for some small (but awesome) wins on DealDash. I want you to get the most out of your DealDash experience. If you’re interested in reading more tips and tricks check out the “Tactics & Tips” section on DealDash.

DealDash BINning is Still WINning

DealDash BIN WIN

BINning a DealDash auction will save you money and earn you free bids.

You know what BIN means, right? It’s a big catchphrase around DealDash, and it means “Buy It Now.” The kind folks at DealDash have made it so no one ever has to lose money when they play on DealDash. This article will show you how to use the BIN option, and explain why you should be using it.

How Much Does It Cost To BIN?

Every single auction includes the option to BIN the product, and the BIN price is always located at the top of the auction description. The BIN price is different depending on what the retail value of the item costs. The BIN price is shown on the left-hand side when you are looking at the individual auction’s page.

 

How Does It Really Work?

When you don’t win the auction, DealDash will automatically place the item in your “Dashboard” in the section called “Open Buy It Now Offers.” When you want to use the BIN option, just click on the blue button that says “buy now” next to the auction’s title. You will be taken to the screen to confirm your address and payment method – Credit, Debit, or even Paypal.

After you have paid for your BIN auction you will receive all of your bids back that you have placed in the auction. If you are willing to BIN an auction you will never lose any money, because you will always receive all of your bids back. You have 1 week (7 days) to use the BIN option, otherwise it will disappear and you will not be able to get your bids back.

 

I hope that you have found this article helpful in learning about the option to BIN items on DealDash. Also, now that DealDash is providing product reviews right on the auction pages, you can have an even better buying experience. Now that you know about BINning and WINning, go check out the auctions. See you on DealDash  soon. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

Big Wins on DealDash

Image result for big winHave you ever had a big win on DealDash? There are hundreds of winners every day, some big and some small.

Most of you reading this DealDash article have probably had at least a few wins on DealDash, but unless you had some really great beginner’s luck they were probably smaller wins. Smaller wins on DealDash are fairly easy, but big wins can be downright difficult.

Why do you think that the smaller wins are easier? Well, there are a few reasons why this could be – starting with the fact that there are usually fewer bidders in the running for the smaller auctions. It could also have something to do with the fact that DealDash offers the BIN “Buy It Now” protection on all auctions. People know if they don’t win the auction outright, then they can always BIN (Buy It Now) and get the item, free shipping, and all of their bids back to use on another auction. Not only that, but they get to keep the “clock time” that they gained by bidding on the item.

People are usually more willing to BIN the item if it has a lower value. You are far more likely to find someone willing to pay $20 for an item than to pay $200 – Even if the $200 item is appealing, not everyone has a spare $200 in their budget to use to BIN the item. Either way, we are all lucky that DealDash offers BIN protection on all auctions, big or small.

What is the biggest item that you have ever won on DealDash? My biggest item was a Neato robotic vacuum. It was an awesome win, and it’s something that I use every day. Do you know how I won? I was willing to BIN this item. It was a little on the expensive side, but since I knew that I was willing to buy it anyway I put enough bids in to get to the BIN price – and I won anyway! With all of the bids plus the final cost of the auction I ended up saving myself over $100 than if I had just ordered it. So there’s the DealDash lesson – bid to BIN, and you might just WIN!

I hope this article has you thinking about your next big win. I want you to  get the most out of your DealDash experience. If you’re interested in reading more tips and tricks check out the “Tactics & Tips” section on DealDash. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

Love that Winning Feeling on DealDash

Image result for winning feeling That winning feeling is pretty common on DealDash. There are hundreds of winners every day!

Do you know the winning feeling that I am talking about? If you’re a frequent bidder on DealDash, of course you do! Winning on DealDash is sometimes very easy, and sometimes downright difficult – but once you see that big “CONGRATULATIONS!” it’s all worth it, and that’s the winning feeling that I’m talking about!

There are some categories that are easier to win than others – I find that video games, DVDs, and Blu-Rays are on the easier side to win. On the flip side of that coin, I find that the gift cards, especially the smaller $10 and $25 ones are more difficult to win. Why? Because most people don’t mind taking a chance on a $10 or $25 gift card to a store that they are planning on going anyway, such as Subway or Dunkin’ Donuts. They know if they don’t win the gift card outright, then they can always BIN (Buy It Now) and get the gift card, free shipping, and all of their bids back to use on another auction. Not only that, but they get to keep the “clock time” that they gained by bidding on the gift card. It’s a great situation to take advantage of the perks!

I have occasionally had awesome luck with winning gift cards, though. I once won a $25 Shell gas gift card for around $3 (plus the cost of bids, so around $5 total) so you just never know what’s going to happen when you bid on DealDash. That’s why they call it entertainment shopping.

Once you have had that winning feeling a few times – why don’t you share it? Have you invited your friends and family to join DealDash? You can’t bid on the same auctions at the same time, but why not share your love of DealDash with your nearest and dearest?

I hope this article has you thinking about your next big win. I want you to  get the most out of your DealDash experience. If you’re interested in reading even more tips and tricks check out the “Tactics & Tips” section on DealDash. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!
