My Ancestry sub expires next week so I am interested in any offers too.  They will be charging 179.99 to renew my 12 month worldwide sub.

If I click on the link when not logged in on Ancestry it takes me to the 69.99 for 6 months UK/Ireland or 99.99 for 6 months worldwide sub.

If I click in the link when I am logged in on Ancestry it takes me to the half price offer, BUT when I click on the "get started" button it then takes me to the 69.99 for 6 months UK/Ireland or 99.99 for 6 months worldwide sub.

No mention of any 12 month subs.

 ???

previously the half price offer only worked if the sub had expired, it used to say it was for 'new subscribers' only.
So in that case, you need to wait until yours has ended.

Jool,

You need to cancel your Ancestry membership pronto so that it doesn't auto renew. Then wait for it to expire, then join again using the discount code. Your preferences, submitted trees etc will be preserved.

Wooohooo!  I let my Ancestry sub expire as you advised, I have just renewed using the link on this thread and now have 12 months worldwide sub for 89.99 instead of 179.99.

Thanks Rootschatters  :D

I haven't had an Ancestry paid membership for quite some time.  Pleased to say that the link is still working and am delighted to have renewed my 12 month worldwide membership for 89.99, so a huge thank you for sharing.

That 12 month link works every time as long as your subscription has completely expired, also make sure that you are logged in. From another group I belong to, people have said you need to be on a laptop rather than a phone.

Hi,

I thought people would like to know that this link is still working on 30th October.

I cancelled my renewal two days before would have renewed yesterday, and today I used the link and paid 89.99 for 12 months Worldwide :)

Regards,
Daisy

When lockdown first started I did have a subscription to Ancestry.  It was obtained at a reasonable cost. (only UK  I think)
As a member of my local library, I can now get free access to Ancestry, so plan to take advantage of that.  Certainly looks as if lockdown 2 is coming here in uk.
