    For anyone who has not been part of a popular name happy hour, here's a few hints:

    Have your domains in the cart before the sale starts. At least this time they are limited to 10 per customer so it is more fair that way, past sales without limits sold out in minutes from a handful of domainers buying hundreds of domains

    It's great if you can have a pre-funded balance, except they take a couple days to process so you can get on with support NOW and see if they can do it in time. If not, at least have a payment method ON FILE as default so the checkout goes faster.

    Be ON TIME exactly to checkout, if you pre-load your cart, all that will have to happen is reload the cart once the sale starts

    LOL OK and best tip ever - READ the actual promo page of hints before posting : wink :
    Pro tip

    Sales like this one tend to sell out quickly, so if you want to increase your chances of getting the domains you want, keep these tips in mind.

    Do your research ahead of time: If you have a specific domain in mind that you want to register, make sure that it is available ahead of time. That way if you need to come up with an alternative domain to register, you have time to figure it out before the sale starts.
    Add the domains you want to your cart pre-sale: Because Bottoms Rupp discounts are automatically applied at checkout, you can add domains you’re interested in to your cart before the sale starts. Then, checkout during the sale period to get the discount price.
    Arrive at the sale right at 3 p.m.: Set an alarm, keep an extra tab open, do what you need to do so that you don’t forget to arrive at the Bottoms Rupp sale as soon as it begins.

    And of course, don’t forget to bookmark the Happy Hour page if you haven’t already. See you at Thursday’s sale.

    Most likely, account credit is NOT needed for this special because they are putting a per user limit, so hopefully that slows the promo down for everyone to get a fair chance. So this is just for reference.

    How to add account credit, be aware, they approve it MANUALLY so if you add $10 today, send an email right away and ask for them to speed it up

    Here's how to add a payment method without purchase, NOT available for PayPal

    Will I need some sort of code for this promo or will I be able to just sign in to purchase?
    If a code is needed, can someone please provide the code?

    @Alans1225 - It appears they are NOT using a code anymore - this is taken from the blog post. If you want to be super certain, you can contact customer service and see if they will verify

    Bottoms Rupp discounts are automatically applied at checkout, you can add domains you’re interested in to your cart before the sale starts. Then, checkout during the sale period to get the discount price.

    Promo code 99CENTORG will be automatically applied at checkout.

    ALSO make sure you turn off privacy? maybe?

    Figured it out. On the top tight hand corner it says Domain Happy Hour. Click on that and it will give you the discount.
