    If I use GoDaddy to buy/bid closeout/auction domains and then after 3 months or so transfer these to a different registrar will I still be able to use GoDaddy?

    Basically I want to be able to buy/bid domains on GoDaddy Auctions and then transfer them to a different registar. The only reason for using GoDaddy would be due to their auctions site. I'm just wondering if I do this, would GoDaddy eventually look at me, see that I'm taking all the domains away from them and they would then close my account or something because they don't want to do business with me?

    They won't close your account. I buy aged domain from them and transfer it to other registrar without any problem

    There's no such rule or in their terms that you can not transfer all the domains away from them after 90 days on regular basis so definitely you're good to go, as long as you're complying with icann and godaddy's terms you won't be loosing your account and definitely this not a reason for which they may terminate your account.
