Default FMP subscriptions

My FMP subscription came up for renewal today, but I have cancelled it.
They upgraded me to Pro in the spring, which meant I could have unrestricted access to the 1921 Census.

However, they wanted £199.99 for renewal, and that was with the loyalty discount. At present we have builders in until Christmas and I have no time to research seriously so I decided to let the subscription lapse.

I'm hoping there will be some good offers early next year to tempt me back. I really don't think that loyalty necessarily pays.

I still have my Ancestry subscription.

You can get a 3 month Premium sub which includes the 1921 census now. It is showing a cost of £59.99 for that one when I look at gift subscriptions, or £199.99 for an annual one.

It was the Premium subscription I had, not the Pro. I've corrected it now.

They are now offering me £159.99 for 12 months.

Not much point being a loyal customer on autorenew!

It doesn't pay to be loyal.

They are offering me and other lapsed subscribers a 40% discount!
Premium subscription £141.59 if I subscribe by 1st February!

It says £119.99 for me, Elizabeth. I got an email with a link which took me to the Australian subscription page and didn't show a discount, but I finally realised that if I went to the UK site and logged in and made sure to choose the 12 months tab, it would show the discount properly. Think I will take out a sub.

Wow. How do I find that?
I want the Premium (top) subscription.

I'm on autorenew, for 12 Month Premium, due in a few days.

It says "Payment on due date: £169.99 - 15% loyalty discount - Your loyalty discount will be applied upon renewal."

Does that mean I pay £169.99 or £150,29?.

Anyone know how long you have to have lapsed before being offered the discount? I use FMP very often.
