My email was all priced in US$ though  ??? ??? ???

I live in the East Midlands  ;D

Mines in pounds.

I wonder why they have decided to do this, not enough people buying credits?

I got the email. I'm told that I am a subscriber from Feb 2016 - I renewed a month ago.

Tried a search for my father and still being asked for credits. So does this start in February?

That quote I included could be read both ways couldn't it? I read it as the 1939 being included from the 16th Feb. It doesn't make sense otherwise, as I've been a subscriber for years. I think it is just punctuated badly and the comma is in the wrong place!

Looks it must be from 16 February. Not the clearest communication ever.

Yes it looks like free access for subscribers starts from 16th feb. Looks like they are also increasing the annual sub price to 119.95. But existing subscribers get a discount when they renew.

no I'm a Britain subscriber and always have been. Although I have bought some credits in the past for the odd record outside Britain.

Am I right in reading the email, that the only way to get the lower rate subscription, is to make sure that you have automatically renew ticked?

Quote
.      Just head over to your account and tick the 'Auto-renew my subscription' box and we'll ensure your price remains the same once your current subscription expires.             

That's a bit crafty!
