  • I just found this old link searching through the forums, as the one I saved last year now doesn't work. It appears to offer the same 50% off that I've used in previous years. I normally just cancel my membership (which I seem to remember you can do in advance, and it will continue to run until your current end of subscription date) and then subscribe again on the day after the old membership expires. I'll be trying it out properly at the end of the month, but looks as though it should work! https://www.ancestry.co.uk/cs/offers/subscribe?dna=crossAct&o_iid=70089&o_lid=70089&o_sch=Web+Property

  • PS - I just checked my renewal email, and it says you will need to cancel membership at least 2 days before your renewal date (but you should still have access up to that date, if it works as in previous  years!)
  • Thanks - mine expires in 4 weeks time

    When you say "cancel" do you mean the auto renewal?

  • When you say "cancel" do you mean the auto renewal?


    Yes, but effectively that is cancelling your membership - it's the same thing. I cancelled my membership yesterday, so as not to forget to do it 2 days in advance in the excitement of Christmas and New Year celebrations (hmmm, maybe...!), but I still have full access until midnight on the 31st. I'll just subscribe, via the link I shared above, on the 1st, or whenever I'm ready (probably sooner rather than later, in case it disappears again!).

    Will this work using your original email address though or will it need another email?
    I have tried this in the past unsuccessfully

    Yes, it worked for me - with the same account (unsubscribed - so just the free account which remains when you unsubscribe) and the same email address. The link I posted above did revert at one point to the standard Ancestry sign-up page for new subscribers, but it reappeared with the discount again when I signed in to my account.

    Unfortunately -- it looks as if they have now closed that offer - I cant get it to appear now - all that I can get is the standard 6 months price (£99.99)
    and thats with me logged outof my Ancestry account

    I logged in to my account and tried again - this brings up a new page
    With Premium at £119.95 for 12 months
    And Worldwide at a ridiculous £224 because they still dont treat me a new member
    it looks as if Im going to have to create and use a new email address and get worldwide at £89.95 for 12 months
  • Just tried again after signing out of my account - brings up the standard page, but then when I sign back in again the 5o% off discount page reappears... Am presuming you've cancelled your old membership in time for it to not autorenenw?
