4] Some auction sites offer free bids when you signup with them. Do not spend them immediately and use them only when you purchase bid packs. Users who tried their luck with freebies have been successful in winning the bid.

5] Never place your bids in advance, as you will be easily outbid by others. Most of the bid winners wait for last minute. So, bidding some minutes before the auction increases your chances of winning the bid.

6] Do not bid early thinking that only few users have bid on a particular product. It looks only 10 bidders have placed their bid but more than 30 will be waiting for the last minute to place their bid. These experienced people can outbid you easily.

10] Never spend more than the amount that you are willing to lose. Wait for the right time to bid and win the auction.
