I contacted them to let them know, I'll be renewing in about 2 weeks, when funds permit. They explained that they do hold "my domains" for 19 days without penalty, but after that there is a reinstatement fee for each domain of $80.
However, out of concern for my domain being in safe holding, I did a search on GD, and it reveals my domain is in the GD auction, with a current asking bid of $250?
My concern is that one of my (expired) domains is a "twoword" .net, and the .org is in auction for $2,777 (with a reserve of $1,480 min bid)?
However, there are NO bids...
Is this some kind of scare tactic by GD?
If not, and someone does bid some 'stupid' amount of money, and I reinstate the domain (as I intend to) - does GD take a percentage of the sale?
