I just found out the same thing that after a year, no more discount.  I was very disappointed, is this true and can it be extended.  Those on a limited budget and this is their joy, are out of luck after a year.  So sad.

That would be wonderful and they would probably get more business.

When I called to renew my Ancestry subscription I was told that it was a one-time only discount!  Nowhere in AARP's literature does it say that!  I wish I had found out before renewing my AARP membership!

Re: Ancestry.com free for LDS members

Message 16 of 34 (5,109 Views)

Ancestry.com (and a host of other sites) are now free for members of the LDS church.  The main LDS site is familysearch.org/.  The new free subscriptions are available here:

 

https://familysearch.org/partner/ancestry

 

And here:

 

https://familysearch.org/partneraccess

 

(LDS) Church members can sign up through FamilySearch for a complimentary Ancestry.com subscription.

 

For those who are not LDS church members, any of your family or friends who are LDS that are helping you on your personal family history, they can get the free access.

Ancestry autromatically renewed me yesterday at the standard rate.  They refused to give me the AARP advertised discount of 30%.  Said their ad was in error and they have tried for two months to change it.  Present ad declares : "As an existing member of AARP and subscriber to Ancestry, save 30%"  etc.

Re: Ancestry.com discount -- AARP "discount" not very real when contacting Ancestry.com

You should definitately call AARP and let them know about all the trouble you've had with Ancestry. In my experience, they will make an external case, and work with the partnering company to fix your problem.

I just renewed with ancestry.com for 6 mos. with the AARP 30% discount. The trick is it will renew in December at the discount, but next June will renew at the standard price. The member has to call back before the yearly expiration to get another discount. Crazy, but that't how it's working.
