I've received an email to say my membership will be renewed on the 6th April, though last time GR took 2 lots of money off my card.

Serena.......the same thing happened to me about a year ago, No reminder email, just got an email saying my membership had been renewed
This year though I actually got a reminder. :-D


Serena Report 8 Mar 2014 12:47

Just checked my emails to find i have renewed my membership !!!

No email to remind me it was due just a message to say they have taken £15.96 for 12 months membership

Would have renewed any way , would have been nice to have been reminded the sub was due !

My sub expired in March and I wasn't going to renew ... around middle of April got email with an offer which I accepted .... $12.00 Can which works out to approx 7.7 pounds for 1 year standard sub


jax Report 30 Apr 2013 18:33

My six months sub was offered to me at £1.33 a month so £7.98 but as I know they were going to charge me special offer at £2 a month in 6 months time I opted for the 12 month sub at £19.95...cut out the messing about :-D


HeyJudeB4Beatles Report 30 Apr 2013 18:29

It was £1.67/month from memory may have been £1.66 which is £19.92 ....the six month option was on "special offer" of £1.33/month



KenSE Report 30 Apr 2013 08:19

Was it £20.04? The usual is £19.96.


HeyJudeB4Beatles Report 29 Apr 2013 12:19

AnninGlos...I bet you haven't! £7.98 for six months me....if I wanted to take the 12 month option it was £20.04 - three times (and more) more than you are paying.

GR - You ARE a divisive shower! :-(


AnninGlos Report 29 Apr 2013 12:02

I have just renewed and was charged £6. for 12 months. I am auto renew and had two emails and one PM. One e mail warning and one email and 1 PM confirming. I have no complaints.


Gai Report 29 Apr 2013 09:13


I never received any notification from GR when my sub was due for renewal either.



HeyJudeB4Beatles Report 28 Apr 2013 19:36

T&Cs This notice of renewal will be sent by email 14 days before such automatic renewal.

So today they took my money but I did not have anything 14 days ago...


Stewart Report 23 Apr 2013 22:53

It was some years ago when I joined and I paid £7.96 for 12 months by credit card. They have renewed it at the same price every year and sent me a renewal notice one month before it's due.
I have kept the same credit card and the same email address since I joined.
I can't complain


JannieAnnie Report 23 Apr 2013 21:28

If I look at the cost for me to re-subscribe (end of this month) on the subscription for 12 months it has £1.67 per month (20.04 for the year) but it is crossed through and shows Special Offer £1.33 per month (£15.96 for the year).

If I log out and look at the subscription then it just shows £1.67 per month.

I was contacted earlier this month offering a 20% discount on renewal for 12 months at £1.67 - so £15.96. As it works out at about 30p a week I don't mind it


jax Report 23 Apr 2013 21:23

That link just gave me signed out and got this

12 month plan £1.67 per month* 6 month plan £2.50 per month* Subscribe Save £9.96 a year compared to the 6 month plan* Prices above expressed monthly.
Actual payment will be taken in one lump
sum for full value of membership.

Do it quickly, Margee, before it changes its mind ;-)


jax Report 23 Apr 2013 20:35

Dont know what GR are playing at...sure they make it up as they go along


Margee Report 23 Apr 2013 20:31

This site has new prices listed. 12 month subscription @ 50 p. per month, i.e 6 pounds per year.

I have just received notification from Genes that my subscription expires 21 May and I will be charged 6 pounds.


SylviaInCanada Report 23 Apr 2013 19:54

Still randomly inconsistent, and not the way to treat the site's members.
