After using snaglo frequently for several months now, I've learned the tricks it takes to win big. I've become somewhat of a regular winner and I've learned a few secrets in the time I've invested on the site. Here are a few tips that I'm willing to share. You'll have to learn the rest on your own.
Tips & Tricks:
There is feature called the Auto-Snagger that will automatically place bids for you, based on preferences you choose. You can set a minimum and maximum price and the decide how many bids you want it to use. This is a very effective bidding method for some users of the site. Bidders use this as a scare tactic to dissuade other users from bidding against them. A lot of people don't like to go against an Auto-Snagger because it will automatically make the person using it the highest bidder until it is out of bids. If you keep placing bids against someone with an Auto-Snagger, it will keep outbidding you. This can cost you a lot of bids. If you see an auction with someone actively using an Auto-Snagger, wait it out and try to see if the Auto-Snagger eventually gives up. Then you can swoop in and place your bids. You can even set up your own Auto-Snagger and use the same strategy of scaring off other bidders. Be careful though; if everyone stops bidding against the Auto-Snagger, the auction may end sooner than you think making the Auto-Snagger the winner. It's all about timing, strategy, and patience.
Don't be discouraged if you don't win right away. It takes practice to get the right strategy and everyone has their own technique. If you're nervous about your first auction, you should try the Beginner Auctions. These are only available to people who haven't won an auction yet, so you won't have to worry that you're going against a "pro." You can use this opportunity to win a bid package and increase the number of bids you have when you decide to bid on the more popular items like computers, iPods, cameras, and TVs.
When you register, you receive three free bids that you can use to try the site before you decide to purchase bids. There is a link to the "Winners" section on the homepage so you can see the great deals that people scored.
I'm sharing my secrets because I really enjoy biding in the auctions and I want to make sure everyone knows about this great opportunity.
