One common question new bidders might ask is “How can I play smart and win big on DealDash?”
I discovered DealDash.com on Feb. 8, 2012, and I have been having fun shopping on this penny auction site ever since. During a 50 percent off auction April 16, I won a $25 Bed, Bath & Beyond gift card for only 3 bids and 15 cents. Wins like this are what makes shopping on DealDash.com so exciting and fun.
To play smart and win big, try this DealDash winning strategy:
Instead of placing just one bid at the beginning of the auction, place a low number of bids into BidBuddy, the automated bidder, at the beginning of each auction. This strategy works extremely well whenever all of the other bidders are new to the site and do not yet know how to use BidBuddy.
Even many experienced bidders will place only one bid in the beginning of an auction with the intention of placing more bids later on during the bidding process. If you are the only bidder with bids placed into BidBuddy, your second, third or fourth bid might slip between the cracks when single bids stop coming in. If you focus on winning auctions soon after the bidding begins, you will only use a low number of bids and pay only a very low closing cost. I noticed this is the only winning strategy some experienced bidders use.
