Knowing When To Use DealDash’s Buy It Now Option

Have you ever become carried away bidding on an item that you wanted on and had the “I’m going to win this attitude come over you?”

I have. I was obsessed that I wasn’t watching how many bids I was using and then I noticed that I had spent 74 bids and the item was only $11.99 and the bidding continued.
After I did the math of how much the bids had cost which was $13.32 on an 18 count  Keurig Telly’s Hawaiian Blend K-Cups coffee I was very surprised that I had invested that much money in bids for that item because “I was going to win it”.
I dropped out of the bidding before I lost money and bought it for $11.99 and ended up saving $1.33 AND I got my 74 bids back which is always nice when your running low on bids. With this said, keep in mind that bids cost money. If you exceed the manufactured retail price with bids, may I suggest that you keep track of your bids and if you can afford to BIN then do so. You end up getting your item and ALL of your bids back. Not all bidding sites offer this and then it turns into a lose/lose situation.  DealDash guarantee’s their merchandise and if you are not satisfied you can return the item.
Thanks DealDash for being a fair and honest bidding site!

    The buy it now option to also get your bids returned is the absolute best feature. Long-time bidders like most of us find out too late, “going all in” did not work. Buy it now, I get what I wanted and I get my bids back to bid another day. The best penny auction site online!

    I know how ya feel. Get tired of losing to the power bidders and every once in a while I have to go all in and give it the old college try. Win or lose

    Ha! Been there, done that! I get very upset with myself when I overbid and then have no money to BIN the item 🙁
