Using Mind Games to Win on DealDash

 DealDash Mind Games

Using mind games on DealDash might not be the nicest way to play, but it is smart.

Do you ever use mind games on DealDash to beat your competition? What sorts of mind games do you play? Even though it might not be the nicest way to play on DealDash it is allowed as long as you are following all of the House Rules. If you would like to see a list of the House Rules just click on this link right here. Read the rest of this article to see how other people might be playing mind games with you.

Bidder Avatars

There are some rules about what sorts of pictures that you may upload on DealDash, the official rule on avatars is the following…

Please don’t try to intimidate others or post misleading content, bid count, links, emails, etc. Thank you!”

It says very clearly that you are not allowed to post “intimidating” pictures, however, it doesn’t say that you aren’t allowed to have an avatar of your favorite items to bid on.

For example, if Legos are your favorite item to bid on you might want to have a picture of a Lego as your avatar. Or perhaps you are a musician, you might want to have a picture of a music note as an avatar. Trust me, if I entered into an auction for Legos or a guitar with either of the above avatars I would probably back out pretty quickly. If someone likes something enough to make it their avatar, well, they probably want it more than I do.

Stompers Play With Your Mind

No one likes Stompers. Stompers are someone who bids immediately after you cheating you out of your clock time. This can be done accidentally, of course, but if it happens over and over again you know that they are doing it on purpose.

When someone stomps on your bid it probably frustrates you. If you’re frustrated enough and you haven’t put in very many bids you just may back out of the auction. Stompers might be annoying and make you feel unhappy, but it’s 100% allowed. That’s one of the great things about DealDash – you can play however you like as long as you follow the House Rules.

I hope this helped you think about playing DealDash using some strategic mind games! If you’re interested in reading more tips, tactics, and tricks check out the “Tactics & Tips” section on DealDash.

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.

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!

Winning More, Spending Less on DealDash

Image result for winning more spending lessEveryone wants to win more auctions, and there’s nothing better than saving money while you win.

By now you’ve all seen me try and educate everyone on how to win more auctions on DealDash. However, winning on DealDash is great, but winning with FREE bids is even better. Here are a few ways to take advantage of the free bids that DealDash offers.

The easiest way to get free bids on DealDash is to bid! That’s right, just bid, bid, bid, and eventually you will get free bids from DealDash. How does it work? If you look down at the bottom of your screen You will see your bidder name, your bids you have banked, your level, and then your “Time as the highest bidder” meter. When you are the highest bidder in any auction your meter starts filling up with green. Once your meter is completely filled you will get free bids! It’s that simple! As soon as your bid meter has been filled your account will automatically be credited with free bids. You will then move onto the next level and get another empty bid meter to fill up to get more free bids. The more auctions you enter and the more you bid, the faster you will fill up your meter and get free bids.

Another super simple and easy way to get free bids is by your posting your winning photos to DealDash’s Facebook account. If you would like to participate in posting your winning photos to Facebook, here is the link to “Like” DealDash on Facebook. You not only get free bids for every photo, but you also get entered in for a chance win 1,000 bids! The 1,000 bids are awarded weekly for the best photo.  Learn about how you can claim your free bids here. It only takes a few minutes to post a photo, and you are always rewarded. It’s win-win!

Free is the best, but cheap is good as well – be sure to check DealDash every morning to find out how much the bids are priced at for the day. Some days they go as low as .12!! Now that’s a deal!

I hope this helped some of you realize some of the different ways to get free bids, and 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!

DealDash Bidding Styles Examined

What bidding style are you using these days? There are so many different ways to bid, try them all, see what you like.

The first way that we will look at is what I like to call “educated bidding.” Educated bidding is the style of bidding that can win you quite a few auctions. In this style of bidding you do all of your research beforehand. You pick an auction, you do your research, and then you use your bids sparingly until you have conquered the auction.

Another way to bid is “scattered bidding”. In this style of bidding you bid on anything and everything that catches your eye. A few bids here, a few bids there, maybe you will get lucky with this style.

The final way we will look at is the best way, in my opinion. Let’s check out the BidBuddy way!

  1. Do the math to figure out how many bids that you need to put in your BidBuddy to get to the BIN (Buy It Now) price.
  2. Buy enough bids to reach the BIN price of the auction you are thinking of winning.
  3. Place the bids that you would like to bid on in the auction in your BidBuddy.
  4. Hit the “Book a BidBuddy button.
  5. Wait for the auction to end.
  6. Claim your win!

 

The BidBuddy gives you an edge over anyone who bids without BidBuddy. In the examples of the other bidding styles above, it’s very unlikely that you would win if you are up against anyone using a BidBuddy. BidBuddy is really the only way that you are going to be able to bid on more than one auction at once and be able to win.

The best part about the BidBuddy is that you don’t even have to choose between bidding styles – you can do either the educated bidding OR the scattered bidding and still use your BidBuddy, because there is no minimum or maximum amount of bids that must be used with your BidBuddy. If you wanted to place 1,000 bids with the BidBuddy you could do it, as long as you have the bids available to use in your account. On the other hand, if you wanted to place 5 bids on every single open auction, you could do that as well. BidBuddy is versatile!

I hope this helped some of you think about different ways to bid, and get the most out of your BidBuddy. 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!
