I just got word that my favorite domain registrar, Namecheap, has a promo on the go right now that may be of interest to you. They're approaching their 3,000,000th domain registered and are having a contest where every 10th domain is free (cost credited back to your account).
I have no affiliation with the company but have used their service for years and simply highly recommend them based on my own experiences with them.
This may be a way for a few struggling warriors, or anyone for that matter, to score a freebie or two.
Hope this helps! Here's the link to their promo page:
