findmypast subscription
« on: Wednesday 06 October 21 09:36 BST (UK) »
My subscription for findmypast ends on October 15th. I have cancelled auto renew.
Is there a special offer or discount code at this time. I have a 12 month pro subscription which I would like to keep or  a 12 month UK with newspapers included would do me.
Thank you,
Norma

For some years FindMyPast have been pretty good at offering a discount to existing customers at each renewal - from memory I think it's generally been around 10%, though I think I might have seen someone mention getting 25% just a day or two ago. So it might be worth reinstating your auto-renewal, at least until you've compared what they might offer you with what they're currently offering new subscribers.

FindMyPast describes its auto renewal subscription as having an "unbeatable loyalty discount". It could be the best deal available.

I think the 25% discount may be a 'one off ' for those of us that they are in the process of transferring from a Britain only subscription as they no longer offer that option  I always leave my auto renew for F M P and automatically get the loyalty discount

I'm trying to find out what the FindMyPast "Pro membership" annual subscription is as a newcomer. But every enquiry ends up as "You are already on the highest subscription". So, in order to compare my present subscription for "Pro" can anyone tell me what the present sign on fee is without a loyalty discount. Might it be 159.99?

Eight years ago I was paying 143.96 but am paying less than that now

Yes it's 159.99 for a new Pro sub. My last 4 renewals have been at 132.56.

Mmmm?
I was on 132.56 for three years until last renewal (Nov 2020) when it exploded to 135.99. What am I doing wrong !!!

My last 132.56 was 10 January 2021. Presumably they at least match any discount they offer to new subscribers at the time?

My last 12 month Pro cost me 119.99 pounds. I transferred from my 12 month British Subscription which cost me 71.64 pounds. I got that 25% off the Pro Subscriprion  plus a week or so refund on my British Sub. .I have asked Findmypast if they will auto renew at last years price. Waiting for their reply.Thank you for all your interesting replies.
