Let’s Not Make These Mistakes on DealDash

DealDash newbie mistakes

There’s no “right” way to bid on DealDash, but there are definitely some wrong ways! Avoid some common mistakes with these tips.

If you are a new DealDash bidder, don’t worry, it’s really easy to get started on DealDash with very little “hard thinking” to do. However, there is a little bit of thinking and planning to do if you want to put your best foot forward and start winning auctions. You’ll need to do a little thinking ahead, planning, and making strategic decisions to avoid making some common mistakes. Here are some ideas and tips from DealDash to help you.

Don’t Get Overwhelmed

Being a new bidder on DealDash can be a little overwhelming. There are so many different auctions, bidders, things to learn, and blinking lights that it can get a little confusing at first. Don’t worry, there are some things that DealDash has implemented to help out new and old bidders alike. The easiest way to not get overwhelmed is to have a firm game plan when you are using the website. Stick to your plan, bid with thought, and be prepared. Those are all things that you will need to keep in mind to help yourself not get too overwhelmed when using DealDash.

Make a Plan, Set Alerts

When you first start bidding on DealDash, a big mistake would be to just start bidding on anything and everything, regardless if you’re really interested in it or not. The best way to avoid this mistake is to set alerts on the things that you really, really want. It’s easy to set an alert on DealDash.

Look through the future auctions (or do a search) on DealDash, and find some that you are interested in bidding on. If there isn’t a starting time listed it means that this is a product that DealDash carries, but there isn’t an auction for this item scheduled yet. You’ll need to set an alert for this auction, don’t worry, it’s easy to do! Just click the button that says “Alert me” and DealDash will send you a quick email when they have scheduled an auction for this item. Easy!

Don’t Be Afraid to BIN an Item

Do you know what BINning an item means? To BIN means to “Buy It Now.” When you BIN an item, you simply pay the retail price of the item and you will get all of your bids back! Yup, it’s that easy! When you have decided that you’re not going to win a particular auction, just stop bidding and hit the “Buy It Now” button. After you’ve paid the retail price for the auction DealDash will immediately credit your account back with all of the bids that you spent on that auction. They will then send out your item with free shipping and tracking (unless it’s a gift card), just like you had won the auction. It would be a huge mistake not to BIN an item that you have lost.
