Aside from using the basic bidding strategies, we also need to remember a few important tips about what NOT to do when bidding on Swoopo. These are just as important as the basic rules so violators beware!
Don’t Forget the Golden Rule
First up is the Golden Rule which I can say is somewhat similar to our known golden rule. This rule in Swoopo states: never pay over retail price for anything on Swoopo. The problem though is that this gets violated on a semi-regular basis on Swoopo. Bidders actually get a hang that they forgot how much they are spending already and also forgot that they are already above the limit.
I’m only talking about the current product price and not about the cost of bids. If you find this number getting close to or exceeding the worth up to price of an item, get out immediately! Its better checking other sites that sells you product than continue bidding.
The Post-BidButler Battle Bid
Try saying that three times fast: The Post-BidButler Battle Bid, the Post-BidButler Battle Bid, the Post-BidButler Battle Bid. As I mentioned earlier, if two BidButlers are triggered at the same time, a BidButler Battle ensues. The cost of the item and the time on the clock both soar. It’s not unusual to see 10 minutes or more added to the auction clock after a BidButler battle. A common error I see time and again is a bidder jumping in immediately after the BidButler Battle with single bids while the auction clock still shows several minutes. Do not go hand in hand with a Bidbutler that has just emerged victorious on a Bidbutler battle.
Don’t Start Bidding Unless You Have Time To Spend on an Auction
This rule is for all the busy folks out there. If you know you’ll need to leave your computer after only a few minutes, don’t start bidding. A typical Swoopo auction can take well over a day. Now, you don’t need to set aside 24 hours to start bidding. No, most auctions will only be truly competitive for a few hours. A good rule of thumb to use is never start bidding on an auction unless you can devote at least two hours to it. Remember, its just two hours.
Also, you probably won’t need to pay attention on your auctions the entire time. A BidButler Battle, for example, would give you much needed bathroom and snack breaks of ten minutes or more. Take note that don’t be pulled away from an auction after you’ve already invested your hard earned money in bids.
