Oops…I Made a DealDash Mistake

DealDash MistakeDon’t worry, everyone makes mistakes. If you want to avoid DealDash mistakes, then read on for some helpful advice…

Making a mistake on DealDash isn’t typically a huge deal. You might lose out on a few bids, or you may end up frustrated, but in general a DealDash mistake is okay. Do you know why? Because it can always be turned into a learning experience to make yourself a better bidder, and that’s a good thing. Look on the positive side, stay excited, and bid on DealDash.

When Are You Bidding?

A big DealDash mistake that I see happening all the time is people are swamping the site during the peak bidding times. If you’re bidding on Friday nights and Saturday and Sunday between around Noon-8PM you’re going to have a difficult time. These are some of the busiest times on DealDash, and it can be really difficult to snag an awesome deal. It can be done, of course, but not as easily.

If you have been making this DealDash mistake, not to worry. There is a very easy solution – bid during the off hours! If you can find auctions that you’re interested in winning in the super early AM, or perhaps when most people are at work, then you should bid on those. No, you don’t have to stay up late or call out of work! Just set up your BidBuddy.

Not Using Your BidBuddy

Speaking of the BidBuddy, if you’re not using him, that’s a major mistake! You DO know how to use the BidBuddy, right? It’s easy! The first thing that you will need to do is pick an auction to bid on. After that, then just input the number of bids that you are willing to spend on it in the BidBuddy box, and click the “Book a BidBuddy” button. It’s the best way to be able to bid on auctions when you can’t be online, and it’s perfect for bidding on auctions during non-peak times when you’re busy with other things.

Don’t Get in Over Your Head on DealDash

screenshot-29

Bidding on DealDash can be so exciting that it’s easy to get caught up in the moment, and get in over your head. Here are some ways to keep yourself afloat.

 

DealDash doesn’t want you to get in over your head. DealDash wants you to bid responsibly and enjoy playing in the auctions. However, sometimes bidding and winning are just so much fun that it’s easy to get carried away. And once you get carried away and go over your bidding budget then you’re unhappy. DealDash wants you to enjoy your shopping entertainment experience. Here are some suggestions from DealDash to keep you from getting in over your head.

The main way that you can keep yourself from getting in over your head is setting strict bidding limits for yourself for each auction, and sticking to them. If you say that you’re only going to spend 100 bids on a particular auction, and you know that you have a very fierce competitive spirit and it’s hard for you to stop bidding when you’re in the moment, simply input your 100 bid budget into your BidBuddy and walk away. The BidBuddy is there for you to use however you like, from helping you bid while you are asleep or at work, or in this case to help you stick to your bidding budget.

Another way to keep your head above water while bidding is to bid on items you would buy anyway such as gift cards for K-Mart, Sears, fast food restaurants, Target and Wal-Mart, or even household items that you use daily such as laundry detergent pods. Remember, if you have gone over your bid limit and reached the BIN price on the item, use the “Buy it Now” option and pay retail price for the item. DealDash will when refund all of the bids you used on that item, and you can try again another day. This is really a great option for you if you tend to get carried away while you’re bidding on DealDash.

These are just a few helpful guidelines for keeping your budget and bids in check while playing on DealDash. It’s easy to get carried away, just try to follow my suggestions: remember to set a budget, use your BidBuddy, and keep calm. See you on DealDash everyone! Good luck and happy bidding.

DealDash Spells Savings B-I-N

Everyone loves to WIN an auction for pennies on the dollar, but it’s also nice to BIN when you don’t win.

The great thing about bidding on DealDash  is you never walk away empty-handed. You will win plenty of auctions if you follow the suggestions on all of the DealDash blogs, but no one can win every auction that they enter. DealDash wants you to feel good about bidding, whether you win or lose – that’s why they created BIN – Which means “Buy It Now.”

Buy It Now – BIN – is your safety net. No matter which auction that you are bidding on, no matter how many bids that you have used you can always BIN the auction. The BIN price is always clearly labeled at the top of the auction description, and as a bonus, each and  every auction and BINned auction includes free shipping. After you have paid for your BIN auction you will receive all of your bids back that you have placed in the auction.

Let’s look at an example. If you are bidding on a Blu-Ray disc that has a BIN price of $20, and you have already placed 125 bids, assuming you paid around .16 per bid, it would make sense for you to BIN this auction and get all of your bids back, because .16 x 125 = $20. So if you BIN this Blu-Ray disc for $20, you will receive free shipping as well as all of your bids back to try again on a different auction. So you see, if you are willing to BIN an auction you will never lose, because you will get all of your bids back!

In addition to getting all of your bids back, you will also get to keep the “clock time” that you accumulated while bidding on that Blu-Ray disc. Once you have collected enough clock time then you will receive FREE bids from DealDash. No catches, no strings, just free bids to use on whatever you like. This is the reason that gift cards are so popular on DealDash, because as long as the gift card is for a store that you shop at anyway, there’s absolutely nothing to lose by bidding in the auction and possibly getting that gift card for an awesome deal!

I hope that you have found this article helpful in learning some useful information about DealDash. Now use your newly acquired information and go check out the auctions! See you on DealDash everyone! Good luck and happy bidding.

BIN to WIN on DealDash

Image result for BIN dealdashBeing a great bidder on DealDash is easy, it just takes a little time, knowledge, and willingness to BIN!

When you think about bidding on DealDash, what are the most important things on the website? The products? Sure, those are great, but the real gems on DealDash are the bidders! DealDash loves all of it’s bidders, and wants to give you some tips on how to be an awesome bidder and win more auctions.

The first thing you need to do is be sure that you have enough bids to work with. To be a great bidder you need to have lots of bids in the bank so that you can be sure that you have enough to bid until you reach the BIN (Buy It Now) price. If you have enough bidding power to BIN, then you can bid confidently, and that will shine through, and people will begin to recognize your name as someone who’s willing to “go all the way” in an auction. It’s a great thing to be known as a bidder who will bid until the BIN price, because if someone recognizes your name and isn’t willing to bid until BIN price, they will usually drop out of the auction.

Another way to be an awesome bidder is to use your BidBuddy. The BidBuddy is a great auction tool that DealDash provides to all of the bidders to use for free. It just isn’t feasible to bid one-by-one if you are participating in an auction that is likely to last for hours or even days. And as we discussed before, it’s important to be willing to BIN each auction that you are in, so if you don’t win you can always pay the retail price and get all of your bids back.

Personally, I only bid on auctions that I am willing to BIN, that way I am not losing any money if I lose the auction. I love the BIN feature on DealDash, because it’s like an insurance policy for your bids.

I hope that you have found this article helpful in learning some useful information about DealDash. Now use your newly acquired information and go check out the auctions! See you on DealDash everyone! Good luck and happy bidding.

Be the Best Bidder on DealDash

 Image result for dealdash bid

Learning how to be the best bidder on DealDash is a challenge since there are 8 million registered users on the site.

Since  DealDash has so many registered users, there is always plenty of competition on the site More competition means it’s harder to win auctions. Luckily, the more that you learn about DealDash the more likely you are to win. Here is some helpful information that you should think about while you are browsing and bidding on DealDash.

Don’t get distracted while you are bidding on DealDash. If you try to participate in too many auctions, and you aren’t paying full attention to any of them there’s a good chance that you won’t be a winner. The only way that I personally feel safe in bidding on more than one auction at a time is by using my BidBuddy. The BidBuddy is a great auction tool that DealDash provides for everyone to use, it helps you bid consistently and helps you win. I wouldn’t ever bid without it. If you are interested in more than one auction that are running at the same time, then using the BidBuddy is a must.

Speaking of distraction, you should hone your focus on a particular product or category. If you can hone your focus on a particular product or group of products you can see who’s bidding, and you will start to recognize names and bidding patterns. If you have been paying attention, you can figure out if it makes sense to go “all in” , or bide your time and wait until a different auction. Pay attention to bidder names, bidders tend to bid in the same area frequently. If you pay attention to their patterns you might be able to snag yourself a bargain.

Don’t forget to take some time to browse around and get to know DealDash before you start bidding. Luckily, they have a “Tips and Tricks” section that you can read and study before you try your hand at bidding. Once you have educated yourself on the “ins and outs” of DealDash, then you can feel confident in placing your bids.

I hope that you have found this article helpful in learning some useful information about DealDash. Now use your newly acquired information and go check out the auctions! See you on DealDash everyone! Good luck and happy bidding.

Good Luck on DealDash

Image result for lucky
Do you consider yourself to be a lucky person? Are you the one in your family that consistently gets the “good” gift in the white elephant swap, or maybe you always win on scratch tickets. The great thing with DealDash is you can make your own luck…

Whether you consider yourself a lucky person or not doesn’t matter on DealDash. The key to being lucky in DealDash auctions is being willing to BIN (Buy It Now) any auction that you enter. If you are willing to BIN every single auction that you enter, you have a much higher chance of winning the auction, especially if you become “known” as a bidder who is willing to go all the way to the BIN price. Trust me, those bidders who are known to go to BIN price each and every time definitely have an advantage.

When you BIN an auction, it just means that you pay the full retail price for the auction and you receive all of your bids back that you spent on the auction. You also get super-fast free shipping on your item as well. If you only bid on things that you were going to buy anyway, such as if you needed a new knife set for the kitchen, or you needed new ear buds and were going to buy them anyway, why not try to win them on DealDash, instead? Buying It Now is your safety net. And if you happen to win, that’s great! If you end up BINning the auction instead, no problem, you can use those bids in the very next auction that you enter, or save them for later. Now you can claim that you are the lucky one in the family!

Next time you’re feeling lucky, be sure to visit DealDash at this link right here, and try your luck. If you don’t win, you can always take advantage of the awesome BIN feature that DealDash offers and get all of your bids back. You even get to keep your “clock time” as the highest bidder! You can check out the auctions here on the computer, or you can even download the app and use it on your phone. It’s available for both Apple here and Android here. See you on DealDash everyone! Good luck and happy bidding.

The Official and Unofficial Rules of DealDash

There are two categories of rules on DealDash – Official and Unofficial. Let’s take a look at both to make sure that everyone understands them.

 

As for the 100% official “created by DealDash administrators” rules, they are both easy to find and easy to follow. They call them the “House Rules”, and they are very clear and easy to understand so that everyone is on fair grounds and equal footing. You can find these official rules at this link located right here. There are not many official rules, however you should most definitely familiarize yourself with the official rules so you don’t put your bidding account in purgatory until DealDash has had a chance to look into the situation.

These rules are very easy to follow and shouldn’t make your bidding or winning any more difficult at all. The House Rules are put in place to make things as fair and honest for everyone. Here’s a quick overview of the rules– but please check out the full version so you don’t accidentally get yourself into trouble.

  • Each person can only have 1 account, no exceptions.
  • You can win the same item only once per week.
  • You absolutely may not bid in the same auction with your family members, friends, or acquaintances.
  • You may not use any type of bidding software to automatically bid for you except the BidBuddy which is provided to everyone free of charge.
  • Your user name cannot be vulgar or obscene, and it also can’t mislead people into thinking that you are a DealDash employee, either.
  • DealDash employees and immediate family are not allowed to bid on auctions.

Those are the main points and summaries of the official House Rules. If you need any clarification on any of them check out the full version , and if you are still unclear about anything please feel free to send in a support ticket to DealDash. DealDash customer service reps are extremely friendly and willing to help you with anything that you have a question regarding, be it the rules or how something on the site works.

Unofficially there are a few rules as well, the biggest one being:

Don’t jump on other people’s bids.

This means that you should not bid immediately after someone else has bid. It’s the best practice to wait until the clock has 1, 2, or 3 seconds left before you put your bid into the auction. The reason that this is important is that every bidder who has put in a bid and spends time as the highest bidder earns seconds on their “bid clock.” When each person’s bid clock has been filled up they will receive free bids from DealDash. As I said, this is a completely unofficial rule, and no DealDash employee will enforce this rule. However, this is a very common “rule” among the bidders, and you will usually be quickly corrected by other bidders by having your bids “jumped on” therefore losing out on your clock time as well.

I hope that this article has helped you become more aware of the rules around DealDash. Remember to pay attention to the rules, check out the auctions and see what you would really like to bid on, see you on DealDash everyone! Good luck and happy bidding!
