Bid Buddy, What Is It, How Do You Use It?

Bid Buddy, Bid Buddy, Bid Buddy! Everyone is talking about the Bid buddy!  What is it and how does it work?  If you’re new to DealDash you are wondering about the Bid buddy.  Perhaps you think you won’t even need it, but that would be a foolish waste of opportunity.

The first and most important thing the Bid Buddy does for you is bid in order of your place in the auction line.  If you don’t use BB and you bid manually, you will be wasting bids because you are bidding after every other player.  When the Bid Buddy is loaded up it bids in order of the players signing into the auction.  It’s really simple, you put the number of bids you want to use in the auction and then hope that you are the last standing.



That is the easy explanation of what happens with the Bid Buddy, but it is so much more valuable than that.  The BB help you earn free bids.  One of the nicest things that Deal Dash does for its players is to give them free bids for every second you are high bidder.  So let’s say you are in an auction with four other people and you are all using the Bid Buddy, what happens then is every player is rewarded with about 9 seconds as high bidder, during this time you will earn free bids.  If there is someone in the auction who is not using the Bid Buddy and they are bidding manually, they are eating up all the free bids of the other players, so it’s kind to your fellow players to use your Bid Buddy.

So how do you use the Bid Buddy?  If you are in the auction for the individual item you will see the Bid Buddy set-up.  Simply click in the set up and type in the number of bids you wish to use in the auction, and hit enter or “add bids”. once you do you are “in line” and bid Buddy will only Bid for you when it’s your turn.  If there are 10 people in the auction every 10th bid will be yours, and so on.

If you don’t use the Bid Buddy you can expect to use a lot more bids than you should for an item, in one sense you are actually cancelling out yourself by bidding after every player, in fact, when I am bidding and someone is doing this, I actually do not count them in the line because there bids are senseless and useless.  They aren’t going to win and if they do it’s a fluke, so don’t bid manually. It’s a waste of bids.

When you first start at DealDash the slamming of bids without using the Bid Buddy is called “Stomping” it’s usually done by Newbies and rarely done by seasoned players, and there is a reason for that, the Bid Buddy helps you win!

Just use the Bid Buddy right from the start, if you do you will reap the rewards which are free bids and a place in line to bid exactly the right amount of bids to win.

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!
