I received an email from Ancestry.ca offering a 6-month membership at 40% discount. For the complete, World Deluxe 6-month membership the offer was $77.99 Cdn SAVE 40% off $129.99,
I’d provide the link but I’ve been trapped before mentioning an email offer only to find out it was exclusive to the addressee!
Interestingly the offer at Ancestry.ca is $129.99 Cdn, SAVE $50.
You can often get a good price by calling and negotiating. It’s part of the game. You play better if you know what’s been offered to others.
Another part of the game is the terminology. Are you a member or a subscriber?
Member: one of the individuals composing a group
Subscriber: a person who pays to receive or access a service.
Do you feel the relationship with Ancestry is best described as a member or a subscriber?
Most people know to never let a membership/subscription renew automatically. Delete the credit card linked and soon after the expiration, you’ll get a renewal offer. Sometimes if you wait a few extra days you’ll get an even better offer. That’s not just a game Ancestry plays. Companies know it costs a lot less to get a previous subscriber back than to get a new one.
