Ancestry Discount Codes
« on: Thursday 25 October 18 09:57 BST (UK) »
I gave up my Ancestry World subscription about six months ago, primarily for the cost and a slowing in the gathering of data. Since then I have been contacted by three reasonably close family members from all over the place and must now consider rejoining, but not at 180. Does anyone know of a good discount code please. If not Ancestry then Findmypast.

I don't know if you are aware of this or not but you can still respond to private messages on Ancestry after your subscription has expired. You can't initiate the contact but you can reply.

Try this link

I used it successfully to get a Premium sub about ten days ago, so it may still work.

Thank you Blue. That is how they have contacted me but those conversations have created new queries and intrigues which could be explored.
I'll see if it works Sloe Gin, cheers [no pun intended]

The link still takes you to the page with the discount, so it should still work.

If it doesn't, ring them and demand it. You can quote the URL if needed.

I don't use their DNA, but rang them on the last day of my sub and asked why I shouldn't just let my sub lapse and resubscribe.

They renewed (pretty quickly) at the half price rate.
Looking at ALSTON in south Ribble area, ALSTEAD and DONBAVAND/DUNBABIN etc. everywhere, HOWCROFT and MARSH in Bolton and Westhoughton, PICKERING in the Whitehaven area.

You will probably need to cancel your subscription or if you are not on auto renew let it run out before you try it.  I think your sub must have 'expired' before it will work
