Here are some tips on winning SpeedyFinger. First of all, SpeedyFinger is very different from other penny auction sites in that every auction listed is a reserve auction. The key to winning is be patient in all of the auctions. Some people go away winning an auction with only a few bids, but others just place bids on auctions and then leave. This is where you take the chance at bidding some at someone else's expense. It may be cruel, but it will prove to be invaluable in getting that item you always wanted.
SpeedyFinger does have beginner auctions where it cost no bids. You just keep clicking your mouse button until you win. It is that simple. Now it is onto the bid packs at the bottom of the screen. Those auctions only cost bids so use them wisely. All of them are guessing games on whether they end high or low. The main purpose here is to build up your bids so you can tackle the featured items with as many bids as possible.
Bid Blitz should only be used to get what you want, but it will drain your bids fast until the reserve price is reached. The main problem with using Bid Blitz is that bidders run out of bids before the reserve price is reached. This is where you take the chance and use Bid Blitz yourself to win the auction. You may win big or lose some bids, but better than the last bidder who used all of his/her bids.
You can also exchange your winnings for bids to tackle on bigger items such as the iPad. I do this all the time and need the bids to get what I want from the auctions.
Just be careful of auctions that disable Bid Blitz because you may either win or lose bids if the reserve price is reached. There are some people who just build up a hoard of bids to tackle the priciest auctions with ease. Free bids make life easier and you have a better chance of winning. Just be prepared in advance and make sure you have bids to win on SpeedyFinger.
