Log into your Ancestry Account

Click on your user name, top right of the screen
Choose Account settings
In the Membership section is shows when your current sub renews automatically
Cancel the membership

Now you won't be automatically charged the 179.99 the day its due.

Once your membership has expired, login into your account, the membership will now say you are a registered guest.

Stay logged in and then click on the link that Sandra posted
https://www.ancestry.co.uk/cs/offers/subscribe?dna=crossAct

That recognises you as a registered guest and will offer the reduced price

NB you wont see the offer while your sub is still active.

Hi,
Have tried this, but not getting a discount.  Any ideas?
Thanks...

Has your sub actually expired?
When you log into your account, does it show you are now a registered guest?
Was your account a .co.uk  one?

I've just tried it out with a registered guest account that satisfies all the above criteria, stayed logged in, clicked the link Sandra posted and the offer does come up. I clicked the option I wanted (89.99 for a 12 month world wide sub) and it took me through to a payment screen for that amount. I don't want it, so canceled out of the screen but 'would' have been able to continue and pay that price.

Hi,
Thanks for reverting.
Sub expired July.  Yes, a Registered Guest.  Yes to .co.uk
Annual Worldwide is quoted 179.99 (when Stg is selected as opposed to ).
I suspect that as it's an Irish sub that the offer is not available - I have also tried with a .com login.
Last deal I got was 6 months from January at 5 per month for Premium Membership.

I think I have seen others with a .ie expired sub saying it didn't work as its a .co.uk offer page.
I've not heard of anyone with a .ie expired sub who said it worked for them, but hopefully someone with more knowledge of .ie accounts may come up with a suggestion about a current offer that works for you.

Thanks again.
Ironically there is not an Irish Ancestry site.  .ie just transfers you to .co.uk  Only recently has the pricing had the Euro payment option become available.
Probably this deal is not available as it recognises the Country of origin of the ISP.

Not sure why it shouldn't work for Ireland as people in the US, New Zealand and Australia can use it.
