    Did you put in the promo code at checkout?

    Looks like user error rather than GoDaddy trying to scam you for $5

    If you get the domain for 1 year it's 5 and for 2 years it's .99 same thing happened to me. It's a two year deal for the .coms

    Personally I do not recommend godaddy , they do have some "nice" offers to get you in but honestly it's one of the worst companies out there , the renewal fees are not crazy, their support is horrible , go for namesilo or namecheap instead

    Yeah, the 0.99 is not always apply to all customers, for example, not for China, and don't forget enter PRO code and uncheck all unwanted service like SSL or couple years before checkout.

    BTW, Godaddy renewal fees SUCKS!

    No, they're not scamming. You can contact the Godaddy Support and ask about this matter.

    The GoDaddy offer is:

    Buy for 2 years pay 0.99c for 1st and 14 (or 16$) for second year , total 14.99.

    If you do your maths, the money you safe is 0.00 with other popular domain providers :)
