  1. I was put on a “do not email list” and no one , including me, knew why. I was promised 4 months of free service….yet I only got 3 months of free service. No thank you; no “good-bye”; no special offers or encouragement to continue my service with them. Like someone said about, “I guess does not need any more customers” (In reality they don’t –they can’t serve the ones they have!!!!!!)

  2. logged on but still asking full price, I was on month to month due to end in a couple of days, cancelled that sub but now still asking for full price when I try to resubscribe.

  3. This is incorrect Barbara, many people have upgraded at the discounted rate. You should try to log in in to your account (this is important) and visit the link in the above article again. If this does not work, please call them back.

  4. If you upgrade you will be refunded your current subscription price (what is left of it) and given the new rate. We did this successfully. Just make sure you are logged in to your account before clicking the above link.

  5. The All Access membership includes all of, basic access to and Fold3. So you get everything in the first two levels and the extra access to the two additional sites.

  6. I was baffled as well, but tried a different approach. The discount DOES NOT apply if you click on the banner up top after you have signed on. I logged out, logged back in and clicked on the upgrade option from the “pop-up” window and that is when it took me to the discounted upgrade page. Extremely lousy programming on their part.
    1) Log out then log back in.
    2) Click on the upgrade button from the pop-up window.
    3) Discounted prices should now apply.
    Good luck.

  7. Does the Newspaper deal also include the other two levels or is it a separate package all to itself. There isn’t anything to explain this to new customers who aren’t familiar with all these deals. Thanks

  8. That was wrong for them to say that…I was a curerent US member. In Ancestry, I just clicked the link to upgrade to World Membership, and it charged me the $74 and also refunded $33 on my credit card…so I just paid $41 for the next 6 months of a world membership

  9. Once again Ancestry hits the long time user. First family tree maker is cancelled within days of purchasing an update and now new subscribers get half price!!!! My subscription cost me nearly $500.00 CD in September for a full access. How is this even remotely fair to present subscribers.

  10. This is completely frustrating as many of my friends and family are able to get the new price; yet, those of us who have been paying almost $400 every year for a full subscription for about a dozen years don’t qualify for this. Several of my family members are Veterans and I still don’t qualify for a break in my annual fee? This is NOT fair.

  11. I’ve been trying to take advantage of this and upgrade my all access plan and Ancestry tells me the annual plan is $389 and not the $200 I expected with the $99/six month deal. I can’t figure out how to even take advantage of the six month plan to add onto my account. Suggestions? Discount code?


  12. I went directly to ancestry and followed the link on the front page. I got all access for 6 months for $99.

  13. I called Ancestry and tried to apply the discount to an upgrade and they said I was not eligible as a current customer.

  14. I was not offered the discount rate, so I’m not so sure about the part about offering it for “upgrades on current subscriptions.” The text at the bottom of the offer page says:

    *Offers end November 11, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. ET. Offers available for new subscribers only and not for renewal of current subscriptions. Discount applies to first 1-month term for monthly subscriptions and first 6-month term for 6-month subscriptions, respectively. Your subscription will automatically renew at list price after the introductory 1-month or 6-month offer. If you don’t want to renew, cancel at least two days before your renewal date. Cancel by visiting the My Account section or by contacting us. See our Terms and Conditions for further details.
