I seem to recall that my original purchase was priced in US dollars and converted to sterling by my card issuer.  And postage was quite pricey.  Both are obviously things that any prospective purchasers will need to consider but the point I was making is that ancestry seem to be pretty inconsistent nay FLEXIBLE in their attitude to pricing and if you don't ask you don't get.  Have a deal in mind and see if they will entertain it.

Where did you send the kit? All Ancestry UK kits now go to Ireland, so the economy postage is fairly reasonable.

Definitely to Ireland, 20 rings a bell and I think 10 for subsequent kits (which is a bit daft as had I decided to get kits for all the family for xmas or whatever - I didn't - they would all have been mailed back separately).  Has it come down?  If so that has to be a good thing.

The economy postage is quite a bit cheaper than that I think.

Just checked, with Ancestry UK, expediated 1-2 day shipping is 19.99 for first kit, 9.99 for each additional kit. Standard shipping 7-10 day shipping is 9.99 for first kit, 4.99 for each additional kit.

I've just ordered a kit at the current offer of 49+ p&p, so thanks for the advice to wait for the Black Friday offer (although they appear to now be calling it a 'cyber week sale'!!).

I just hope it will give me some more results to get my teeth into - and, hopefully, some matches who actually have the power to read and type replies!! (I won't hold my breath!)
