Thanks, ICANN, You're A Doll

So I get an email from GoDaddy with regards to one of my purchased domains, and apparently I’m getting a refund because of “ICANN overpayment!” Awesome! Here’s the letter:

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN(R)) recently agreed to reduce their Registrar Transaction Fee from $.25 to $.22. What does this mean for you?

Good news. You have been credited $.03/yr for each domain name you registered or renewed dating back to July 1, 2006* — $.03 has been placed into your Go Daddy(R) account with this customer number: XXXXXX.

Your in-store credit will be applied to your purchases at until it’s gone or for up to 12 months, whichever comes sooner. If you have any questions, please contact a customer service representative at 480-505-8877.

That’s right folks, three whole cents! My mind is racing right now trying to narrow down all of the things I can spend with that money. It’s like I won a very tiny lottery. I wonder if they can pay in lump sum or do I have to take payments?
