I always check my balances. I've never had a problem with GoDaddy reporting, except for once I think in the beginning. I do wish that FatWallet would communicate more. Other than that, I am very happy with FatWallet.

Here I have a year later with another writeup. In the last 14 months I have had approximately 10 purchases at GoDaddy through FatWallet, and I have had four problems with CashBack. OUCH!!!
While my stance on GoDaddy is much better than last year, their customer service has gotten a lot better, I have been slowly switching accounts over to them from other companies.
I recommend them, but like any Goliath when they make a mistake its a mess that takes a long time to correct. But I believe they are doing well, and I do have to admit their prices remain very competitive.
Just wish I didn't have to watch them like a hawk on the CashBack.

I've made three GoDaddy "purchases" through here in the last week. All three have resulted in CashBack notices from fatwallet. One thing I noticed in the past (and have lost a good number of rebates to various places) is that my internet (firewall) suite needs to allow the ID info to get tranmitted -- by default it "protects" me from fatwallet rebates by trying to keep my information private. Fatwallet sends email for "investigation" purposes, but I haven't fussed with that so far, seems like too much trouble.

I have been a GoDaddy customer for about 5 years now and suddenly, I've noticed an unsettling trend. I search a domain on GoDaddy alone, nowhere else, its available, I come home that night to reserve the domain...suddenly in a matter of hours its now unavailable unless I want to pay THOUSANDS for it from a "GoDaddy partner". When this first happened I just thought, "Well, just a coincidence" the second time it happened I was suspicious, the third time, I am now convinced that when I find a good domain name, it triggers a flag in the GoDaddy system and they sell this domain to their "partner" in hopes of making a fatter percentage off a 'resale' back to me, the customer they duped in the first place. Beware of this register company. I still have my domains registered with them but I'm now looking to transfer them to a more reputable register company (which I'm researching now). If this post saves one person from being ripped off, I will feel MUCH better.

Like QueryAll and reallyrob, GoDaddy never reports my Cash Back. I have 4 purchases with them being investigated right now and another 2 that are too new to be investigated. I've never had an issue with any other Cash Back vendor.
I used to think they were a great place to host a site, but in all actuality their prices are more expensive and their plans are not flexible as other smaller companies.
I only still have an active account with them because I am unable to transfer my .ws domain to another registrar.

Well, I am trying to get Cash Back now on my third transaction with GoDaddy.com. If they are not going to report transactions to Fat Wallet, I think Fat Wallet should drop them as a partner. We shouldn't have to fight them every time we purchase something to get them to report the sale. I really believe they do this on purpose, thinking we will forget about it because it is such a hassle.

I've been a GoDaddy.com user for about three years now, having registered or transferred nearly 50 domain names with them. I have registered .com .net .cc .org .ws and .fm domains at GoDaddy. GoDaddy was the 5th registrar I have tried over the past 9 years. All the other companies I tried had at least one negative attribute.
Last year I transferred every domain name I had registered with other registrars over to GoDaddy because of the overall usability of their program. GoDaddy was even able to help wrestle away one domain away from a registrar who would not allow any domain to be moved away from their system. That move currently saves me $20 a year on that one domain name alone.
Here are some of the GoDaddy positives I have found: * They have some of the best pricing in the industry, made even better with FatWallet promo codes. * They have more available extensions than most other companies. * Their administrator interface is very intuitive and understandable. * They have good technical service reps. * They provide email notification to let you know when a domain is in endanger of becoming expired, an important feature when you have more than a couple domain names.
I have also tried GoDaddy's Web hosting services and it wasn't for me. I have a lot of Web sites, some of which are using some pretty cutting-edge features, and I found GoDaddy wasn't able to provide me with what I needed. They offer tons of space for very little money, which might be great for newbies and non-commercial customers, but I needed a lot more functionality from a Web host than they were willing to offer. After a week or so, I called them and cancelled my order. They graciously refunded the entire amount of my order.
It takes a couple of registrations to learn how to wade through, or walk around all the offers they try to push at you during the registration process, but once you get the feel of it you'll be flying through new registrations in just a few minutes. I've used several registrars over the years and have found GoDaddy to be the best, having everything I am looking for in a domain name registrar.

Well, so far I have two different transactions with GoDaddy.com and they have not reported either one of them. If they don't pay the Cash Back, I will never do business with them again! I already get stupid emails from them at least once a week! They should make sure and report the Cash Back, just for the hassle of having to deal with them.

They never reported my CashBack bonuses due. It's been under investigation for weeks. Don't buy with the assumption of getting any fatwallet bonuses.
