Winner of the Subscription Is…


Last week, I announced a drawing for a free six month subscription valued at over $300. The subscription includes deliveries of two 13 ounce bags of coffee twice a month for six months. I compiled all of the entries into an Excel spreadsheet, and I used to select a random cell.

The winner of the subscription is Gary S. I will put Gary in touch with Bill McClure and the .Club Registry later on today so they can set up the subscription. Thank you to everyone who entered the drawing. is currently featuring a special combination Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Grand Opening sale with a 40% discount offer for gift and regular subscriptions. This offer is valid through December 1st using the code “DotClub” at checkout. The full details of the offer can be found on the website. If the coffee is as good as the coffee from Bill’s website, then it will probably be a great deal for coffee drinkers.

As I mentioned in the original article, I was also given a matching subscription to Coffee.Club. My wife and I drink a lot of coffee (less so now that she is expecting), and we liked the coffee cups from (especially Miss Ellie’s Breakfast Blend). Instead of taking them up on the free subscription offer, I am going to gift my subscription and buy my own coffee. Bill Hartzer has always been helpful to me in answering my SEO questions and giving general SEO advice to me. I am going to give him my 6 month subscription as a “thank you” for all of his assistance.

Congratulations to the McClure family on the launch of their newest brand, which is already receiving press coverage outside of the domain space. When the Coffee.Club deal was announced, I thought it would be good for the .Club Registry and for the McClure family. I hope the team will share news of their successes as well as some of the hurdles they need to overcome, both in building and operating a new brand and possibly in operating the new brand on a new domain name extension.

Thank you to both parties for making this offer to me and to people who read!


  1. Congrats to you both, Bill and Gary, and thanks Elliot for sharing the offer. The .Club and teams have had a lot of fun putting the site together since TRAFFIC and we hope you enjoy your memberships – and the fresh coffee!
