How to save big on a and subscriptions
By: Rick Roberts,   Biography & Archived Articles

The August 1st long-weekend was a hot one in Southern Ontario. While cooling off in the house and browsing online genealogy sites on Monday afternoon, I stumbed onto a method to save 25% off of an subscription and/or 15% off of a membership.

A UK-based web site,, operates much like a buying club but without a membership fee. They have a large number of companies that they set up discount deals and rebates with, including and The way it works is that they have a preset discount with the supplier. When you buy from those suppliers through, gets a rebate from the supplier that they pass on to you, minus a small fee (max. £5/year) to support the Quidco site. pays you when it receives it's rebate from the supplier. The rebate can be credited to your PayPal account or bank account. I suspect that it only works with UK bank accounts, so a PayPal credit would likely be the best bet for those residing outside of the UK.

The savings are significant. In the case of, the discount is 25%.

If you want to continue to receive a discount in future years, remember to not renew your subscription directly with Ancestry (or FindMyPast) when it comes due. Let your subscription expire and renew with and you will save again. I recently renewed both my Ancestry and FindMyPast subscriptions before learning about Next year I will visit at renewal time!

I've not used so cannot vouch for it from personal experience. However, is well known in the UK and has had many positive reviews in the press.
