Re: 1921 Census 50% Discount
« Reply #63 on: Friday 10 June 22 14:56 BST (UK) »
Email from TNA just now saying there's a one day only 50% discount on the 1921 census - from 12:00 BST today until 12:00 BST tomorrow (Friday 10th June).

I haven't tried it yet... but 50% off is starting to tempt me for some special records.

Quote
The 50% off discount is automatically applied at checkout, with no code required. No subscription is needed to take advantage of the offer. 12-month Pro subscribers who already benefit from 10% off 1921 Census purchases will automatically have their discount increased to 50% for the offer period. The offer applies only to 1921 Census image and transcript purchases.
As in lunchtime today? Damn, missed it.

11.48 for me.  I have taken extra advantage.  I was surprised to see the reason  :-\ :-X :-X :-X :-X :-X :-X
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.

I wonder whether - regardless of the reasons given in the emails - the true reason is a disappointing take up of the census at normal prices and them hoping to raise some revenue at 50% off before they have to discount further.

The frequency of the 50% offers makes me wonder whether buying additional records now makes sense, or if it would be better to wait for bigger discounts.

It may well just be that, like me, many people resent being charged for individual records and are (reluctantly) willing to wait until the 1921 census ends up on Ancestry.
