Per year. So $76+.

Cheapest option remains email for two years. I used that last year - don't need a domain name, you just make the purchase and let it languish on their system without pairing with a valid domain (meaning you can't use the email account). Of course I actually need a new domain name this year. Trouble is I can't bring myself to pay anywhere near what Network Solutions wants a .com domain. Absurd.

Strangely, it seems .com domains have gone up. I can still buy .net and .org for $5-$7 a year but .com is $10+ - why? Less availability, sure, but that just means fewer good domain names available.

Register a new domain name, decline extra services like privacy

and hosting, select 3 year registration, enter code SAVE70DAF in

the shopping cart, and the price changes to $26.09 ($8.69/yr).

I stand corrected. I misread a line that said savings of $76 and assumed it was saying total cost for three years. Fuzzy math - I know $26 x 3 is more than $76 but eh. It's Tuesday, which is kind of like a Monday.

Bought myself the domain name I wanted. Hope to get a good blog going at aztravelguy.com soon! Not points-related either, there are already far too many of those.

I was able to get the 3 year for $26 promo, but where are you seeing 2000 bonus miles for this deal? The link from the US Airways page (yougetmiles.com) says 1000 miles, followed by a suspicious page asking to insert your "number" without any reference to US Airways or Dividend miles.

Anyone concerned about this language? "Offer codes cannot be combined with any other offer..."

EDIT: Nevermind. My confirmation email clearly states that I will received the 2,000 DM bonus.

Geez. I read your post first, went to the Network solutions site, and STILL read it as $76 for the cost of three years!

Tuesday IS kinda like Monday...

Angry

Everytime I follow the link from the US website to Network Solutions US DM offers, Network Solutions says "Your US AirwaysDividend Miles® account number was not recognized. "

Anyone else having this problem? I have an old alphanumeric number, I even tried it with leadin 0s, on Safari, IE and Firefox all with no luck

Great find. I planned to skip this hit due to the high cost. 2k miles+hit for $27 changed my mind.

With the 2000 mile bonus, it's pretty much a free hit!
