Find My Past Subscription
« on: Monday 14 January 19 16:15 GMT (UK) »
My Subscription for FindMyPast is about to end, has anyone please got a discount code or special offer advice.

No advice on discounts but they normally give a reduction on renewals, I certainly had one.  Also you have to be aware that they changed some of their subscriptions - I have a 12 month Britain sub which includes newspapers, they don't do this one now unless you renew in which case it carries on as before.

Yes I am finding it is slow today

Yes, it has been playing up for me also. I do a search and get say five results, then when I click to review them it tells there are none. If I repeat the search a few minutes later I am able to view the results.

January 2019 - discount codes - although they do say you dont need them to get the discount.

Do you not fancy ancestry - 12 months worldwide subscription for 89-99 - or UK Premium 59-99 still works as far as we know

Thanks for your replies Rosie, Jebber & Sandra. Pleased to hear it's not just me having problems. I tried the link you gave Sandra & it keeps telling me Subscription Unavailable. I already have a subscription for Ancestry, it's where I have my main family tree.

Your subscription would need to have lapsed for the ancestry one.

Hi Sandra, but do these prices not state something on the lines of "Offer available for new subscribers and not for renewal of current subscribers"?

PS or would I have to lapse for a month or so, to obtain these deals?

Ive used the same offer since 2016 - always going thru that same link - only on the first occassion did I create a new email address, the others were when I set the sub not to renew and let it lapse - probably just for a day or two.

As far as we are aware it was still working earlier this month.
