Ancestry Subscription
« on: Sunday 30 December 18 18:50 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

I usually buy the worldwide subscription for a year on Ancestry but now its only letting me pick a 1 month or 6 month subscription - has the yearly one stopped being offered?

there is a 50% off for the premium one for a full year but i do alot of worldwide searches so that would not benefit me :(

THANKS x

Worldwide still seems to be available - 179.99.

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.

I did earlier in the month using that link. Though I'd tried phoning them to see if they'd just honour it without me doing anything and was told by the (quite snappish) young man that there was no such offer available. I just said ok so I'll just cancel then.

set my own sub to not auto re-new (and the original card had expired anyway)

I save absolutely zilch on ancestry (no tree, no nothing) so renewed as my OH, and the 3 weeks or or so still on my own sub was donated to someone else - its nice to be nice :-)

Win win situation :-)

That link works and has done for a few years. All you need to do is cancel your subscription and wait until it runs out. As soon as it has done that you can renew as a new subscriber. If you try and do it before your old subscription has lapsed it doesn't work.

If your sub has lapsed, its not a renewal.  I have renewed on this offer for 3 years, offer has been available now since 2016 - it may have slipped under the radar so probably best not draw it to there attention  :-\
