The Big Steal


Well, it's been a long time! Sorry I have been gone for so long, but I took a break from southwestcouponclipper to help other family members with a business venture. I thought I could keep up with swcc, but I have learned through the past year that most people want to actually see the deals rather than for me to just post the where and how to. That takes a little more time to do and so due to time constraints and trying to keep the consistency of swcc, I was not able to post weekly savings while helping my family member's venture.

So I decided I am going to come back and do it right. My blog name is a little long and most people were being redirected from my domain southwestcouponclipper.com. I decided I was going to make the business change and that started with my registered domain redirection. Here is the surprise I got. My computer crashed and we changed from comcast to at&t. I thought that I had bought the domain for a 3 year period ( I was wrong). I actually only purchased it for 1 year and the reminder email must have gone to my old email address.

Long story long....... is that I just found out someone else bought my business domain and now wants to sell it back to me. ARE YOU KIDDING???? They also bought pretty much all other combinations of my blog's name. I now have to figure out what I want to do. There is NO WAY I am going to pay a dime to this company who bought my company name. What a jerk of a business. I will let everyone know what I come up with and what will become of the blog soon.

Thanks so much for everyone's support and all the sweet emails I received during the break. I truly appreciate all my readers.

  1. That happened to me a few years ago. I had the business up and running for several years. We left for a business show and when I got back, I have a ton of phone calls from customers wanting to know what happened and if we were still in business. Apparently, the notices that the domain was expiring had been going to an old address. By the time I figured out what was going on some @$%?%@ company purchased it and wanted to sell it back to me for $150K. Shesh my business wasn’t worth that much money. People really are a piece of work aren’t they?
