Tactics & tips
You don't necessarily need a strategy to win auctions, but there are countless devious tactics, cunning strategies and mind games that may get you a bit closer to winning your next auction.
The most successful DealDash winners like to keep their special strategies for themselves, but we have noticed that many of our winners use some of the following strategies:
Andy the Aggressive loves to scare his opponents off by outbidding everyone right after they have placed a bid. He loves to intimidate other bidders and make them think that he has a never ending supply of bids. He wants to appear very determined to win the auction, and convey the message that he is going to win and that it is just a question of time when the others will simply have to give up.
Cindy the Conservative targets only items she really wants and is prepared to use “Buy it Now”. This way, she’ll never leave empty handed as she’ll just bid until she either wins or buys the item at retail and gets all her bids back for free.
Erin the Early-Bird has noted that many deals end at an early stage. While some mistakenly believe that bidding in the early phases of an auction is a waste of bids, Erin knows this is one of the biggest DealDash myths and scores unbelievable bargains while others can't believe that that High Def TV did just sell for only a few bids.
Nick the Newbie targets low profile items after purchasing his first, small Bid Pack. With his limited budget he goes after the smaller items to get comfortable with the bidding.
Will the Well-Informed concentrates his bidding on the least busy bidding hours and picks the auctions he takes part in with care. In fact, he spends a lot of time going through the Winners page trying to find that extra edge, an easy-to-grab item or the best time to unleash his bids! Will also studies carefully the bidding patterns of the bidders.
Give some of these tactics a shot, see what works out for you the best and see your winnings skyrocket as you start to bid smarter!
Here’s what some of our members have said:
"I always look up from the sold items how much people bid on the item the last time it was up.. usually it's the opposite of what people think; if it got a lot of bids last time then it usually goes real cheap the next time!" -Ken, PA
"I love to bid real aggressive, it makes it so exciting, haha! It's so amazing when i notice that someone gives up and moves to another auction when i constantly outbid him, lol!" -Mujal, IN
