Bidding on low value items is something I really enjoy. I started bidding on DealDash a year or two ago and saw some high value items selling for pennies on the dollar and thought to myself, “Wow, Christmas has come early!”
So I started bidding on them only to realize through losing many bids in very little time that I should let others bid the price up and jump in later in the auction. After a few missed opportunities, I decided another tactic and that was looking at the lower valued items because they seemed to end quicker and were not as expensive. It wasn’t long before I started winning $10 items and when I went to cash out, I was given the opportunity to either trade it in for bids or get the item. Being that I wanted to keep bidding, I would trade it in for bids to get more items I wanted on the site. It seems to be working for me because I win occasionally with this technique and have fun at the same time.
Keep this bidding tip in mind. Penny auctions aren’t for spending your last dollar, they are for enjoyment and winning items is just a plus to go along with the fun.
I’ve been bidding on DealDash.com for about two years and really like it. I’ve gone to others but find myself coming back to DealDash because of it’s ability get your bids back when you don’t win an auction with the option to buy it now.
I’m a fairly new bidder on DealDash and this is my first experience with penny auctions.
After registering in December 2013 I began bidding immediately! I actually thought that I was going to be a winner immediately as well and I must say I lost all my bids. This was due to the fact that I didn’t try to educate myself about the auctions or read any of the reviews from experienced members like what you’ll find here in this customer driven blogging website DealDash is reviewed by real customers with real stories. If you’re in the same situation and have not read any reviews or studied any tips or bidding strategies, I would recommend reading some of the articles other customers have written here as well as the articles you’ll find on these other sites:
When I first started bidding, I used my first bid on a Acer Aspire laptop and then many more bids on a 300 Bid Pack. I won my first auction when I focused on some of the lower valued items and ended up winning a 40 Bid Pack, 25 Bid Pack and a 80 Bid Pack. Taking these bids I then won a beginner $10 Walmart gift card auction, a Epson WorkForce Wireless All In One Printer and another auction win to compliment the printer was a 500 pack of multi purpose paper for the printer.
I would say I’ve learned a few things by reading articles from experienced members and carefully selecting which items I bid on. My advice to new bidders is to read reviews and try to learn a few tricks to develop your own strategy so you can be a winner too!
