Why Bid on Bid Packs?

DealDash often puts bid packs of 100 to 4,000 up for auction. Usually, the larger the bid pack, the more difficult it is to win. Of course, there are exceptions to this rule, but the largest bid packs of 800, 1,000, 1,500 and 4,000 attract the most competitors.

Perhaps you noticed that many players only place a single bid on a bid pack and never return.  That’s something I often do now, too.  You might wonder why anyone would waste a bid on a bid pack if they have no intention of winning it.

I would answer that question by saying that players have more than one reason to place a bid in an auction. The most obvious reason is to ensure they do not get locked out from competing in the auction in an effort to win it. The other reason is to quickly get valuable information that could make it easier for players to win other auctions.


Let me explain: If you want to improve your chances of winning other auctions, the last thing you want is to end up bidding in the same auction with other players who just won a huge bid pack.

The easiest and fastest way to keep track of that important information is to have it automatically show up on your dashboard. I’m willing to pay the price of one bid to have that information at my fingertips. Aren’t you?  Otherwise, we would have to look through the “winners” list and that would take a lot longer.

Sometimes You Just Need to BIN

dealdash bin

DealDash loves its customers. You can tell by the amazing features that they offer such as Buy It Now (BIN).

Do you love the BIN feature on DealDash? You should, because Buying It Now is a really great option when you’ve invested way too many bids on an auction. Winning the auction is the point of playing on DealDash, but in many auctions, there will be a person who wants the item more than you do. This person will outbid you to get it.

What Does Buying It Now Mean?

BIN is a feature that DealDash offers to every bidder in every auction. This is also known as “Buying It Now.” With BIN, if you have bid to many times and are still not going to win the item you can purchase it at the retail price that is listed on each and every auction page, and have all of the bids that you spent on the auction returned to your account.

When Should I BIN?

Knowing when to BIN an item is an important skill to learn. You always want to do your “DealDash Math” before you enter an auction to see how many bids that you can spend before you reach the retail price.

Once you have hit the number of bids that you have previously calculated and you still haven’t won the auction, that’s when you know it’s time to throw in the towel and BIN the auction. Don’t think of it as a loss, though, because you will get every single bid that you spent returned to your account when you BIN the item. You will also get free shipping, no matter how large or small the item is. Free shipping is the other feature that DealDash offers that really puts them on a higher level than their competitors.

I hope that you found this new DealDash article on Buying It Now helpful. Another way to learn more DealDash information is to read the DealDash Reviews blog and our sister blog DealDash Tips daily. There is always a wealth of DealDash information to explore. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

How Many Bids Do I Need to Win?

Many players ask this question. Of course, it is impossible to answer because there are so many different variables that determine the answer. It mostly depends on the value of the auction item, how many players are bidding in the same auction and the experience level of the players. It also partly depends on what special feature DealDash is running at the time.

No one can say exactly how many bids it might take to win an auction. However, there are mathematical calculations you can do to get a good idea how many bids it might take to win a particular auction.


If you are determined to win a particular auction, you might want to base your mathematical calculations on the highest amount the auction closed at over the last several weeks. You could track it every day and record the closing cost every time it goes up for auction. You might also want to make note of the DealDash special feature when it goes high and the DealDash special feature when it goes low. By doing this, you should be able to calculate about how many bids it might take to win an auction.
