* No matter what, above all else, ''don't ever say you DON'T need the prizes.'' There is nothing worse you can do than that.

Added DiffLines:

** Bids which are one dollar ''lower'' than a previous bid are questionable but not totally idiotic, but they ''are'' a massive crapshoot. You are essentially gambling on the person who bid above you being one dollar over and going for the perfect bid, but more than likely ruining your own chances of winning the round, unless you are trying to throw the round and wait for better prize, especially if two rounds have passed without a vehicle appearing in either half of the show (at least one vehicle always gets offered as a prize within the 3 pricing games per show halves).

* September 25, 2017: A contestant bids $8,000 on a remote controlled quad-helicopter drone, which, even for a fancy novelty such as that, is a little overboard. Fortunately, she seemed to realize her mistake and did reasonably well from that point forward, winning $10,000 in Hot Seat and making it to (even if ultimately not winning at) the Showcase.

*** Repeated again on April 18, 2017, where a contestant bid $111, $666, and $420 on three consecutive prizes, with the $420 bid getting him up on stage. Subverted, however, by the fact that the contestant actually did quite well.

** Any ''five''-digit bid. The display was simply left blank until September 2009, when a new set of LCD displays allowed for five-digit bids to be shown. Probably the most egregious instance was [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfV5R1P4F8c during the 25th-Anniversary Special]] (August 23, 1996), where it happened ''[[CrowningMomentOfFunny right after they showed the lady that bid $9,000 on two surfboards!]]''

* May 28, 1990: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LyMLhXR6Jys This]] One Away contestant (and her friend in the audience) believed that a Lincoln Mark VII luxury car cost $12,000. She was the first, and perhaps the only contestant to play One Away and not get a single number right (which disqualified her from the second chance, since all the numbers at this point would reveal the correct price).
