It’s important to keep a budget when shopping on DealDash and be willing to walk away.
It is very easy to get caught up in the fast pace environment of a Deal Dash auction. Especially when you browse the winners page and you see great items being won for great prices. But it is also very important to remember that you don’t always win, so it is a good idea to have a budget in mind.
When you buy your bids, keep in mind the amount of money you have spent on them. In the end you have to add the cost of the bids to the amount of the item. There are times when it is not worth it so it is very important to have a limit set in your mind for each and every auction you enter.
I know this can be difficult, especially when the item is won only a few bids after you drop. However if you set a limit it will save you money. There is no point in putting 35 bids in to a 40 bid pack. When you add up the cost of your bids, you are paying more than the bid pack is worth. Remember this for the bigger items as well. If you put 500 bids into a great computer, and you still have not won it, you have to be able and willing to take the 500 bid loss, and walk away or use the DealDash Buy it Now option to purchase the item at full price and get your bids back. Before I enter any auction, I figure out the amount of money I am willing to lose, and walk away if I don’t win or then use the Buy it Now. That’s how I’ve been successful bidding on Deal Dash.
I’ve been shopping and bidding on Deal Dash since summer of 2013. I’ve won 70 DealDash auctions and counting.
