I just registered some new domain names and while I was checking out with godaddy I noticed the coupon code box. I normally just ignore such items and move on because I very rarely have a coupon. Then I remembered that my wife ALWAYS looks for a coupon before buying anything online. I always make fun of her… but these domains were going to be bought by “the business”. For some reason I am much more conservative with the the business’ funds than I am with my own. This is probably because I want the business to be self sustaining or maybe it’s just my baby and I don’t want “it” to make the same mistakes I have made… in any case the business is a penny pincher. So I decided to do a search for some coupons… it turned out to be worth it. My original total for what I was buying (2 .com + 2 .net) was $46 or so. When I got done I had spent about $35. That’s close to 25% savings. Not a ton, but the savings amounts to another domain I can purchase or any number of other small things that startups can do with $10 whether it be a month of advertising or whatever.
I figured I would pass on the codes I found that were active at the time. Some of them supposedly do not expire.
- yhkw105a = 6.99 .com (or other???) renewals/new
- cjcdeal749 FOR ($7.49 .NET, .ORG, .BIZ domains, new registrations only)
- OYH3 – 2.50 off / $7.45 any .COM (new an renewals)
- BTPS7 – 20% any order of $50 or more
- OYH1 – 10% off whatever
- OYH2 – $5 off a $30 purchase
- gdr0244d = 10% .net
I used 1 and 2 to do mine. They are not stackable (or I was not able to stack them) so I ended up having to check out twice – once for the .com and the other for the .net – but it was a lazy morning and it only took about 5 extra minutes. So, if I do the math that comes out to about $120 an hour…
I won’t guarantee these will last forever, but I didn’t see any expirations on them. Hopefully someone else will find them useful.
