Tips on Winning DealDash Auctions – “BIN” It to Win It!

Online auctions are a great way to save money. Everyday people save up to 90 percent buying products in DealDash’s easy to win Internet auctions. The savings and the selection of products is why DealDash has become the Internet’s #1 source for legitimate auction bargains. The only catch is that different bidders will be able to take advantage of this opportunity in different ways. Before starting to bid, it’s important to know how to to go about maximizing the savings potential available on DealDash. One way that many bidders overlook is by learning how to use DealDash’s Buy it now option (BIN) to help them save big bucks!

DealDash’s “Buy it now” option is a unique feature that lets bidders purchase the item at a regular price if they don’t win (or if they think they won’t win) an auction. This feature is always available on all of the items featured in the auctions, and the best part of it is that bidders get all of the bids back that they used in the auction. Didn’t win that $20 Amazon gift card? No problem. Pay the twenty bucks and get your bids back to try again in a different auction. It’s pretty simple, it’s just like paying for a regular auction win, and clever bidders recognize that using the Buy it now option can help win auctions. Not kidding: paying the regular price can help you save money on DealDash. Here’s a few suggestions from some big DealDash winners on how planning to BIN can help them win the auctions!

  • Look at the BIN price before deciding on whether or not you want to participate in the auction. Everything looks good when you enter an auction expecting to pay a couple of dollars. Looking at the BIN price and asking yourself if that’s something you’d consider paying for the item can help you prioritize your auctions and decide on where to concentrate your bids. Focusing your bids in a few auctions helps you budget and get more for your bids, and it also makes sure that you focus 100% on getting that item you really want!

  • Budgeting is a really important component to consider when creating your bidding strategy. And even though you might not have control over how much bidding will happen in each auction, you do have control over how much you’re willing to spend on a particular product. Take this recent auction for a $10 Walmart gift card as an example:

The BIN price for this gift card is 10 dollars. Assigning a dollar value to the bids you use in the auction can be difficult, as this depends on when you purchased your bids (see the “DealDash Promotions Make Auctions Easier to Win!” blog entry for more information on how to save money when buying bids). However, you know that buying this gift card will never cost you more than 10 dollars. So when bidding in the auction, it’s important to keep in mind that winning the auction isn’t really winning if you wind up using too many bids. The BIN option gives you a great safety net if you find yourself using too many bids to win an item that you can buy for a reasonable price. Not only do you get the product you have your heart set on, but you get the bids back too!

  • If you prepare yourself for purchasing the item at the BIN price, conserving your bids doesn’t become so important. After all, if you’re going to buy the item anyway, you don’t have to worry about wasting bids. You can use as many bids as you want and get the product at that unbelievably low price (like this LG 32-Inch TV), or you can simply buy the item and get all of those bids back to use however else you’d like. Once again, you get the product you want and get it at the price you want to pay!

  • Different bidders will have different strategies they use to win the auctions, and some of them like to use what might be called an “aggressive” approach. This is in no way a better approach to saving money than what some other bidders like to use, but it can be useful to take a page from their playbook and use your bidding to let other users know that you’re going to get that item no matter what. Once again, the BIN option provides these bidders with a great safety net. If you use a ton of bids trying to let other users know you’re 100% dedicated to winning the product, and that backfires, you buy the product and get those bids back. Try this out on some lower priced auctions to see if it works, and you might be surprised to see how much you save!

These are a few of the tactics that real DealDash bidders use to help them save money in the auctions. The smart bidders know that winning on DealDash is about learning how to stretch budgets as far as they can and outsmart their opponents, and the BIN feature is just one of the resources available on DealDash’s website.

DealDash Promotions Make Auctions Easier to Win!

An important, often overlooked tactic for saving money on DealDash is to take full advantage of the different pricing options available through the promotions. You can almost always get bids at a huge discount by buying while they’re on sale: more than 80% if you buy at the right time! These promotions are almost always running, so it’s important and really not too difficult to capitalize on these great savings and leverage the benefits into more (and bigger) auctions wins. Not only can you save money, but often the rules governing the auctions will change during promotions, which gives bidders the opportunity to apply their strategies in new ways.

Cheap Bids are only part of the Savings

One of DealDash’s recent promotions, for example, reduced the cost of bids to 12¢ each. Buying bids at 12¢ each is equal to getting 5 bids for the price of 1. The benefits of this are pretty clear, but how exactly to leverage this benefit into your bidding strategy might not be so apparent. Some users might take the discount but not really change their approach to bidding, but leveraging the discount into a bidding strategy can help you win more auctions. The freedom to place 300 bids in an auction as opposed to 60 is a real benefit these discounts offer, as these extra bids can help you utilize more bidding techniques (such as relying more on the BidBuddy). Not everyone will buy bids during a certain promotion, so you shouldn’t assume that the other bidders are able to bid as freely as you. Remember, you’re bidding against other people, and a good bidder will focus on how to beat bidders and not the clock!

Special Auction Rules are an Opportunity to Win

You also need to keep in mind how special rules implemented during promotions can change the way bidders can or cannot bid. For example, during DealDash’s recent President’s Day promotion, auction winners were given 50% off the final price of their auction wins. A promotion like this not only reduces your costs by offering cheaper bids, but it also lets auction winners pay less for their products. To make the most of these savings, it makes more sense to take the opportunity to try and win bigger items. Auctions featuring big-ticket items (things that cost over $200) tend to be more competitive, so using those cheaper bids to take advantage of the bigger discount gives you a unique opportunity to really go for the big wins!

Budget Before Bidding

But the most important way to save money, and again this is something overlooked by many bidders, is to set a budget and stick with it. You can find lots of information about how much certain products go for by browsing through DealDash’s website, and you can always search through upcoming auctions or search for specific products to help you plan ahead. This doesn’t mean that you can’t be spontaneous about the auctions you bid in, but it does mean that you should plan whether or not you want to leave some extra bids to do this. Many successful bidders emphasize the importance of strategy and planning ahead, so don’t hesitate to spend some time looking through DealDash’s website. Winning bigger and better bargains is always worth spending the time, and don’t hesitate to leave your own tips in the comments!

Win More Auctions on DealDash by Bookmarking

Digital marketplaces are popping up all over the Internet, and offer online shoppers new, innovative ways to purchase the products they love. Some of them specialize in certain niche markets, while others entice buyers by providing consumers with a more comprehensive source for goods. Some will take a more unique approach and combine certain types of products with other benefits, such as better services or package deals.

DealDash gives consumers the opportunity to determine how much they pay for their products by providing a competitive shopping marketplace. Customers purchase bids that they can use to shop by bidding in online auctions. With the freedom to set their own prices, DealDashers can save bundles on new, brand name consumer goods. Auction winners purchase the items featured in the auctions at a fraction of their retail price, typically between 60 and 90 percent! But it’s important to keep in mind that the savings potential, while considerable, is also determined by your skill as a bidder. Bidders decide how much they’re going to pay, and use the tools provided by DealDash to make it happen!

Winning on DealDash is easy, and everyday rookie bidders win their first auctions. But if you want to win big, and win often, it takes time to learn to do it right. The best bidders are the ones who learn how to use the different features of the website to their fullest. One great example of a feature that many bidders use but few use effectively is the bookmarking tool.

Bookmarks let you “mark” specific auctions so that you can find them quickly and easily at a later date. This might not sound like such a useful tool when it comes to winning auctions, but experienced bidders know how to leverage the bookmarking tool to help them stay focused and keep tabs on how the auctions are progressing. Here’s a quick video to show you how easy bookmarking is, and how useful it is when you use the “live list” in your dashboard.

By bookmarking the auctions beforehand and then keeping an eye on them in your “live list”, you can navigate through your auctions a lot faster, monitor who’s bidding, make adjustments to your BidBuddy, and just generally stay organized. You can always add more bookmarks, so if you have a few seconds you can search for more upcoming auctions and add them to your live list, or take away auctions you change your mind about. Approaching DealDash with this mentality also makes you think about what auctions are your top priority, which can help you budget your bids and guide your research. According to one experienced bidder, the bookmarking feature literally transformed the way she bids, and since adopting this approach she’s won 42 auctions on DealDash!

There are tons of other features on DealDash that makes winning in the auctions easy! Have a look through the blog, as well as the Tactics & Tips page on the DealDash website for more information.

Win More Auctions with A Little Help from your BidBuddy

Winning auctions isn’t something you learn to do overnight, so using them to save money can seem tricky at first. You might see and read about people winning more great bargains than they know what to do with, but what you might not hear so much about is that winning auctions is not about luck: it’s all skill! Many of the really smart bidders weren’t born winners, they learned through hard work, patience, and by thinking about what they’re doing. DealDash works hard to provide bidders with a fair and honest auction experience, and is currently the longest running auction site of its kind in the United States! But winning auctions is up to the individual bidders, and every bidder can take his or her own approach to winning the great bargains available with DealDash!

One feature on DealDash’s website that a lot of new bidders aren’t familiar with is the BidBuddy. The BidBuddy is an automated bidding tool, and a skilled bidder can use it to save time and money, and also as a great resource to help them WIN AUCTIONS! Here are three ways to incorporate the BidBuddy into your own winning strategy!

1. The BidBuddy is Key to Winning with Last Second Bidding

One strategy a lot of bidders use is to try to place their bids just before an auction closes. Every bidder is pressed to bid before the clock hits zero. And of course, nobody wants to place their bids if someone else intends to do the same thing, as this just means they’re placing a bid instead of your opponents. The BidBuddy is a great way to avoid this dilemma: the BidBuddy is programmed to automatically place your bids just before the auction closes. Try setting up your BidBuddy even if you’re planning on bidding manually for the entire auction. This tactic will make sure that your bids are only placed when absolutely necessary, thereby letting you CONSERVE your bids for when you need them to win!

2. The BidBuddy Makes a Great Safety Net

DealDash auctions don’t end according to a set schedule: they stop when the bidding stops (just like live auctions). While this makes them more exciting and offers bidders better bargains, it does demand more attention and focus. The deals are better, but it take more skill and determination to win! The BidBuddy is a great tool to set up as a safety net, especially for bidders who like to pay attention to more than one auction at a time. When you set up your BidBuddy, it is programmed to place your bids just before an auction closes, making it a great way to make sure a momentary distraction doesn’t cause you to lose a long, hard-fought auction. Instead of panicking and switching between multiple auction windows in an effort to place your bids before the auction closes, why not set up your BidBuddy to participate for you? It won’t waste your bids by placing them earlier than necessary, and it leaves you free to check out additional auctions, do research on the products, or just popping in on Facebook to see what’s happening. You can even turn off your computer and take a walk or watch some television: the BidBuddy will keep on ticking to make sure you stay in the fight!

3. People Know Not to Bid Against the BidBuddy

A lot of experienced users know how to spot BidBuddies in the auctions. When several bidders have BidBuddies in the same auction, they bid in a regular sequence, so they’re not so difficult to see. But even though bidders can tell when you’re using a BidBuddy, they can’t tell how many bids you’ve set it up with, or if you’re there watching. This makes using the BidBuddy a bit of a game changer. Bidding against a BidBuddy loaded up with thousands of bids will just mean everyone bidding against it is wasting their bids, but if a BidBuddy only has 10 bids or so then sticking with the auction can result in an easy, potentially very big win! Keep this in mind when you’re loading up a BidBuddy in the auction. When you think an auction is nearing its close try adding a few dozen bids to see if you can get some other bidders to give up the fight. You should also remember that other bidders will try the same thing against you, so don’t be too hasty pulling out of a fight with another BidBuddy! Take a moment to consider the item price, whether or not you’re familiar with your opponents and their bidding, and how much further you’re willing to go to win!

DealDash Review On Winning Tips

Get Free Bids!

Winning on DealDash is easy when you follow some basic guidelines.

Three Simple DealDash Winning Tips

1) Bid on No Jumper™ auctions
-> These are special auctions that can only be found on DealDash. They end earlier, have less bidders and are easier to win. No Jumper™ auctions do not let new bidders enter the auction once the price hits $5. So if you bid early, you have greater chances of winning.

2) Enter the auctions early
-> Most auctions end in the first hour of bidding. A common rookie mistake is to enter the auction when it has already been going on for hours and hours. This simply means that you will bid against other committed bidders.

3) Bid on items you are prepared to buy
-> Inorder to fully take advantage of DealDash, you should never bid on items outside your budget. We recommend using the Buy it Now option if you lose an auction. By doing that you’ll pay a regular retail price for the item you were bidding on, and get all your bids back for free. This way you won’t have to worry about having to buy new bids every time an auction is over and you do not win.
