    Every time I try to use my card on GoDaddy, it says my form of payment cannot be used. Does anyone else have this issue and know a workaround?

    As far as I know, they limit discounted domains for account AND payment type. Try new account and new bank card

    Are you from CA or US? Because most of $0.99 will not work worldwide.

    Try the 1.99 and 2.99 domains.

    This would also be my guess as well, as I run into these "problems" occasionally myself just to find out that the promo is US/CA only.

    I'm in the US, and I just created a new account (I've never bought a domain with them on the old one though...) I used my Visa again, and no luck. Still says my form of payment is unauthorized. What payment methods are you guys using to buy these discounted domains? Is it possible to use Paypal? I only see options for Checking Account, or a Card...

    There is a possibility your card is being declined regardless of the coupon. Are the billing address details correct? The security code?

    Yes, all the details are correct (I've checked, and double checked :(). Still getting the same error telling me to "Utilize another form of payment."

    it has to be the card itself, perhaps its blocked from the bank for suspicious activity?

    You are in the USA but is your card issued in the USA from a US bank?

    I'm going to try a different card, tomorrow.

    Yes, everything is from the US. I can use this card anywhere, Amazon, Ebay, etc. and it works fine. I'll see if I can try a different card tomorrow.

    Why you do not contact their support to get answers about that ?

    It happens because you are from country other then usa/ca. Happened to me als and when i contacted the support, thry told me, it is because of my location (eu). But youcan use 2,99-3,99 coupons. They work fine

    Has to me something to with your credit card or location. I remember getting this error when I used US only codes. But since you are in US it shouldn't be a problem. Unless you your contact details are not US.

    Its not always on that promo from godaddy.
    Also ask your bank , maybe they freeze the card for some reasons.
