How Do I Even Get Started on DealDash?

DealDashWhen you first sign up for DealDash it can feel a little overwhelming. Here are some great tips to get you on your way to winning.

Welcome to DealDash, new bidders. DealDash is a different kind of auction website that is classified as shopping entertainment. This means that DealDash is not just fun, but also a way to get the items you want at a reasonable price. When you first sign up the website can take a little getting used to, but don’t worry, the DealDash Blog is here to help you on your journey. Here are some quick tips to get you up and bidding.

Sign Up, Buy Bids

First of all, you need to sign up with DealDash and choose a bidding name and password. There are millions of registered users on DealDash so you might have to get a little creative with your spelling and add a few numbers. Don’t worry, though, there are still plenty of good names left to choose from.

Your password is next, and a little easier to choose, since it can be anything that you want! However, I strongly suggest that you choose a very strong password. You don’t want anyone else in your household signing in and bidding with your username. It isn’t allowed and could lead to your account being suspended. Add some extra numbers and punctuation in there, make it as difficult as you can remember.

Next, buy some bids! Buying bids is super easy, and just takes a couple of clicks. You can pay with a credit card, debit card, or even with Paypal. DealDash bid packs are available in different sizes. Right now they have packs of 60, 300, 600,  2400, and 5000. The price of the bids changes a little bit every day. It’s a smart plan to check the price of the bids every morning. You can buy bids as you need them, but I personally find it more convenient to buy a bigger pack that lasts for a while instead.

Make Your Profile Personalized

After you’ve chosen a username and purchased bids, go to your profile and pick out an avatar. FOr even more fun you can upload your own. Choose something that you like or makes you happy as your avatar. Many people like to put up a picture of their pet or favorite sports team.

However, make sure that your image is “family friendly” and “G” rated. Uploaded images are subject to approval and may not be immediately visible on the site. Your avatar’s file format must be JPG and not bigger than 3MB. Your uploaded image will be resized to 46 x 58 pixels. You might want to resize your image yourself before you upload it so you can see how it looks at the aforementioned size.

Get Started Bidding!

Finally, it’s time for you to pick an auction and get started bidding. You might want to watch the auctions for a while or jump right in. It’s your choice. Play how you want on DealDash – and have fun!

Do You Have a Winning Combination on DealDash?

DealDashWhat’s your winning combination on DealDash? There are many different bidding and shopping combinations to choose from, and you can mix and match as you like.

Do you have a favorite DealDash winning combination that you often use when you are bidding? You can bid and buy any way that you like on DealDash. You can mix up your winning DealDash combinations to keep the other bidders on their toes. Think about your favorite winning combinations as you read on for more information.

BIN Every Time

Some people who use DealDash go into every auction with the intention of either winning the auction or Buying It Now. This bidder doesn’t bid on lots and lots of things every day, they concentrate on the things that they really want and need in their life. You won’t find this bidder upset that they have no bids left to use – because every time that this bidder uses DealDash they Buy It Now (BIN) and get all of their bids back when they pay for their item if they don’t win.

Patience…

The bidder that has a lot of patience watches each auction that they are interested in carefully before they dip their toe into bidding. They might toss in a few bids to secure their place in the auction before the $5 No Jumper rule takes place, but they don’t start bidding seriously until there are very few bidders left in the auction. By using patience and BINning every time, you might have the perfect winning strategy on your hands!

BidBuddy Bidding Strategy

Using the BidBuddy can mesh well with any winning combination that you have on DealDash. Make sure that you are incorporating the BidBuddy into your winning combinations, and things will go more smoothly for you.

If you haven’t been using the BidBuddy, then you will be so impressed when you work him into your DealDash bidding. The BidBuddy is available to everyone, on every auction. The bidders who don’t use the BidBuddy in the DealDash auctions that they participate in are missing out on a great component of a winning combination.

To use the BidBuddy, first identify an auction that you would like to participate in. Next, decide how many bids that you would like to use in this auction. If you are using BIN as part of this winning combination, then you will need to think about how much you spent on each bid, and then put in the appropriate number to reach the Buy It Now price. Finally, wait and see if you have a winning combination!

What’s Your Winning Strategy on DealDash?

DealDash

What’s your winning strategy on DealDash? There are many different ones to choose from, and you can change yours anytime.

Is there a favorite DealDash strategy that you often use when you are bidding? There is no set way that you have to bid on DealDash. If you use a certain strategy one day it doesn’t mean that you have to use the same one the next time – and it’s probably better for you if you don’t! Here are some things to think about when you are adopting a new strategy into your rotation. Read on for more information.

The Watcher

Sitting back and watching the auctions unfold when you aren’t bidding can be a great strategy. After watching certain people bid a few times you can almost predict what they are going to do when they’re bidding. Most people are creatures of habit. If you notice a bidder who consistently drops out of an auction at a certain point, such as when the auction hits a price of $10, or when there are a certain number of bidders that join the auction, then you have a “leg up” on them.

Don’t Spend All of Your Bids at First

Not spending all of your bids in the beginning of an auction is a great strategy that will result in saving lots of bids.  You need to use patience and watch the auction carefully if you want to use this strategy. The way to go about using this strategy is to put in a few bids at the beginning to see if the auction will end quickly, and if it doesn’t, then drop out for a bit.

The only problem with this strategy is that sometimes auctions end suddenly, and you might miss out. You wouldn’t want to use this strategy on something that you are extremely interested in. This is a good strategy to use on items that you see frequently on DealDash. Remember, being a person who drops in and out of auctions might miss out on some opportunities that other more persistent bidders might take advantage of.

BidBuddy Bidding Strategy

Are you incorporating the BidBuddy into your DealDash strategies? The BidBuddy is a great tool that DealDash gives (free of charge) to all bidders, that you can put in as many or as few bids as you like. You can cancel it or add more bids at any time. No matter what your core strategy, whether it’s being generous with your bids or more frugal, the BidBuddy can help you win.

Winning Auctions Requires Patience ❤︎ Patience ❤︎ Patience

DealDash Bidding Tip Patience

When it comes to winning auctions on DealDash there are a variety of tips and strategies to keep in mind.

Here are a few great examples shared from experienced DealDash bidders that continue to win auctions and come back to DealDash again and again to do their gift giving shopping for their family and friends.

1. Stay focused on one auction at a time and concentrate bids to that particular auction.

Many times we hear from people that have not won an auction in many weeks and that it’s just too hard to win. Winning is certainly very important to the bidding experience and it can become very discouraging if you’re not winning auctions. When was the last time you had a look at your bidding history or thought specifically about what type of bidding strategy you are using? Does your bidding history (dashboard > bidding history) look a bit like this picture below with 1 or maybe 2 bids on several different auctions?

Bidding History

If you’ve been placing a few random bids on hundreds of different auctions and have not won anything, you may want to change up your bidding strategy and become more focused on what you are bidding on.

2. Set your budget and decide in advance the number of bids to use in the auction which is equivalent to the Buy it Now price for the auction item.

Setting a budget is very important and part of what responsible bidding is all about. Look at the Buy it Now price of an auction and figure out how many bids it makes sense to use in the auction. Know when it’s a good time to back out of the auction and use the Buy it Now to get your bids back in case other bidders are just not stopping.  This will help ensure you are not overbidding or overspending.

3. Don’t go over the budget. Only use the amount of bids you budgeted to try and win it.

Tip number three is to stick to tip number two and not go over budget! Simple as that.

4. If you don’t win the auction, always buy the item using the Buy it Now and get your bids back so you don’t lose the bids either.

A great tip is to only bid on items you need or want and are planning on buying anyway. If you’ve got a few hundred bids on your account and you absolutely know you are going to need a new set of kitchen pots and pans. Why not take those bids and bid for a new set on DealDash for a chance to win the pots and pans set at 90% off retail? If you don’t win them, simply buy them and get your bids back. You’ll get your shopping down with free shipping and have your bids to use again!

We hope you’ll find some of these tips useful and implement them into your bidding strategy. Based on the data we’ve collected from customers since DealDash was established in 2009 we’ve found that customers who use DealDash as a shopping site and not just a bid to win auction site tend to win more auctions and have a better experience.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
