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.
