Looking for the Best Time to Bid? Asking these Questions May Help

While night bidding for the best deal may be good, how about those who just can’t stay awake in the late night or early hours. When’s the best time to bid?

I have been bidding on DealDash.com since September of 2012 and over the course of these two years I have done a lot of auction research and watching to try and determine the best time to bid.

I do this because I’m curious to know about my competitors, how they bid and when they bid. For me, I typically watch more and bid less during the weekends because I find the weekdays to be the best time to bid. I have seen new bidders come in on Friday and Saturday and bid on practically all auctions that are open – not really paying attention to their selections. These bidders have likley not done their research or read the DealDash Reviews, tips and strategies. They have not learned that more successful bidders focus on one auction and try to avoid bidding on multiple auctions at the same time. The actual “winning” comes to those who are patient, selective of the auctions they choose, and have focus.

Help yourself find the best time to bid and develop a better bidding strategy by asking these questions:

  • What time of day are there a lot of bidders?
  • At what time does DealDash appear to be a little more quiet?
  • When do I notice a lot of new bidders?

If you watch the isolated auction information you can see the many avatars of the active bidders participating. If there are not a lot of bidders this may be a profitable auction for you.


  • Did you check the winners list for the day?
  • Did you notice how many auctions were won for just a few pennies?

I’ve found these 1 cent “penny deals” happen most often during non-peak bidding hours when the competition is less. Keeping these questions in mind, try to practice and research DealDash.com to see what time of day works best for you.

Final DealDash tip: remember your bid buddy is your best friend as it will help you conserve your bids by only bidding for you in the last few seconds of the auction.

Good luck and happy bidding!
