Go Daddy Domain Coupon Discounts

May 4, 2009 by debbie T | InternetWeb DesignWeb Development

One of my domains is up for renewal next month, and when I got an email from godaddy.com with a discount code for 25% off, I figured I would renew now.

I added renewals for four domain names to my shopping cart; the 25% was supposed to be applied automatically, but there was a big discrepancy for pricing on the items. Strangely, the base price for each domain renewal was the same ($10.69) but two were discounted to $9.02 and two were $10.02 (including the ICANN fee of 20 cents) – and neither price reflected the correct 25% off! see my screen shot below:

The web site stated the expected wait time was only 2 minutes, so, I decided to contact Go Daddy by phone. I spoke to a very nice person (didn’t remember his name) and he asked me to forward the email with the discount code so he could check it out. He took a few minutes to research the problem, and even though he didn’t have an answer to why it messed up, he applied one of the discount codes from my previous order that gave me 30% off each renewal. Even better! Yay!

Each domain renewal was discounted $3 for $7.69 each (including ICANN fee)

So, after I hung up, I decided to add one more domain renewal to the shopping cart; might as well, since 30% was the lowest I have seen it. But alas, when I added the fifth domain, the prices got messed up again. Darn!

I didn’t want to phone them again, so google to the rescue. I searched for “go daddy 30% off coupon” and found what appeared to be an expired code for April, 2009. What the heck, I tried it anyway, and it worked! Yay, all 5 domain renewals were discounted 30% and I was happy.

By the way, the discount code is “CHH3” – looks like you can use it all the time.

I still don’t know what was up with the first discount and why it showed two different prices like that, but I am glad it did; I might not have even realized that the 25% wasn’t correctly applied had it not been for the wacky price error. So, I am thankful for that!

PS. SplashofStyle.com has been renewed until Oct 10, 2010!
