Godaddy Reverses Multiple Groupon Code Redemptions

Lots of buzz surrounded the end of the year Godaddy Groupon code deal.  For $25 the deal would get you $70 in credit on godaddy.  The credit applied to anything they sold, including premium domain listings as some reported.  Some domainers/couponers went all-in buying groupons from the 70 or so cities that had the coupons available.  Godaddy has plugged that leak and reversed all those extra credits. As my grandfather taught me, “if it’s too good to be true, then it probably is”.

I have to admit I jumped in to this and bought a few extra. I have thousands of names and using these on renewals was too good of a deal to pass up. I just checked my account after seeing Domain Shane’s post and all charges have been reversed.  As Shane put it “Godaddy Blows It Again“.   Oh well it was a nice idea for someone else to do right next time.  I bet has some ideas up their sleeves already.

There’s been no news on what happened to the money I spent on those codes. I suspect I’ll see all the extra charges go back on to my credit card.

Anyone who bought extra credits and applied them to big purchases, please let us know what happened to those purchases.

Update on the Groupon Deal.   Yea we’re going there. . . . one last time because the savings is pretty hard to beat.
The deal has a few more hours left in a few different cities still in the US.  I can also confirm that you can buy these deals from multiple cities.  I’ve bought a few from each city and was able to apply them to my account.  Some people have reported buying from over 50 cities.  That’s huge savings!

These cities were still open for deals as of this writing.

las vegas
sioux falls
south bend

Replace the link below with the city above and you can buy more than one deal.
If you want to give a little credit to someone, would appreciate it but I have no idea if our affiliate link is working.
