Thank goodness for the day I found DealDash on September 2, 2012.
I am retired and on a pretty much fixed income. Christmas 2012 was one of the very best years ever. I was able to get all of the gifts I gave from bidding and shopping on DealDash.com. To boot, they were all expensive, high quality items, and I got them all at amazing prices with free shipping.
I am not in a position to always buy items at full price (BIN) so I am careful to budget the bids I use and make sure that I have the time to be patient with the auctions and watch as they progress before I commit too much. Granted, shopping on DealDash can be fun and because of this I have over-spent on many items, but I try very hard not to. If I am careful to bid with my head and not my emotions things go so much better for me and I get good deals by bidding smart.
I see so many people these days over-bid ridiculously. They will eventually learn that bid stomping and bidding with emotions will put them hundreds or even thousands of dollars in the hole. I won’t mention a name, but I was completely shocked the other day when I checked the stats of someone on APA and they were $219,000 in the hole!!! That is insane! That person has a lot of money to burn or a definite gambling problem.
Please bidders let’s get back to bidding sensibly, using the Bid Buddy, and actually folding sometime.
