Knowing When to Say “I Need to BIN.”


Sadly, we can’t all win every auction all the time. If we did, DealDash wouldn’t be able to stay viable for very long! Here is a simple guide to know when it’s time to say “I need to BIN.”

Unless you are just throwing a few bids on auctions here and there not really expecting to win, just hoping to get lucky, you most likely are bidding in an auction to win. No matter who you are, though, there will always be a person who either has more bids to use than you do, or are not as careful with their bids as you, or just someone who is just flat-out more stubborn than you are.

No matter who you are and how many bids you have available to use, realistically,  no one can win all of the auctions that they participate in on DealDash, or any other auction site. Luckily, DealDash has an amazing feature available to all of us called BIN, also known as “Buying It Now.”


Deal Dash wants all of their bidders to be happy and feel good about bidding, so they created BIN. With BIN, if you have bid too much and are not going to win you can purchase the item 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.

Knowing when to BIN instead of continuing to bid is an important skill to cultivate – there are few things more frustrating than doing the math after the auction is over and realizing that you spent far too many bids and should have used DealDash’s BIN feature instead.


When you know your limits and stick to them, playing and shopping at DealDash is always an awesome experience that will help you win great deals or be able to buy items at a fair price and have them shipped to you for free. Good Luck and Happy Bidding, everyone!
