Where is this Genes extra _ is it only for 'special' UK customers. Can't find it anywhere.

Wondered why people were mentioned Penguin books the other day.


jax Report 10 Jun 2013 14:49

Click on home namelessone Nothing there interests me

and certainly would not want to win a pile of books


nameslessone Report 10 Jun 2013 14:52

Thanks Jax

I've tried that, gone over it several times and haven't found it. Home page look the same just the placing of the old 'boxes' has moved around.


jax Report 10 Jun 2013 14:55

Ummmm it was there 10 minutes ago....oh well


nameslessone Report 10 Jun 2013 15:03

Well - I've sent a complaint in.
Mind you, what has wine got to do with Family History ( unless you were winemakers of course).
Don't need the magazine offer as I swop with a friend.
I like books so it depends what is on offer. Free books always welcome so would have probably entered the penguin thing.

Just had this feeling that only 'certain' people got the offers.

It was there for me too, but has now gone, it was in the general area of the 'Hellmans mayo' advert ( NB there are other mayo's on the market :-) )

mine came up along side this board I had a look ,now it has vanished.
good job I am not interested in anything.


CupCakes Report 10 Jun 2013 15:15

There was an Gene Extra's link on the home page a couple of hours ago but it has vanished now.


nameslessone Report 10 Jun 2013 15:16

Well, there was me thinking 'I didn't see a Hellmans advert' and lo! there is the Genes extra.

But it has now gone back to Scottish relatives.

Not worth my fussing!

I saw it this morning & clicked on it, only to be told it´s not available in "my" country yet.
Actually, my country is England.
I just don´t happen to live there.


BeverleyW Report 10 Jun 2013 19:24

What has any of this got to do with Family History?
It's just advertising.
Thank goodness it's not available in my country.


SylviaInCanada Report 11 Jun 2013 00:42


I don't have it

BUT ......................

what a cluttered mess Home page now is :-(

ALL I can say though is ..........................

what unmitigated discrimination against all the overseas members!

not that I want the books, or the wine, and the store vouchers wold be useless to me .........................

it's the PRINCIPLE of the thing!


SylviaInCanada Report 11 Jun 2013 00:44

I've looked at the link

and what a slap in the face

Members who do not live in the UK are not considered part of GR's Loyalty Club

That really tells me what they think of those of us from overseas.

EDIT:- ................ I have just complained to GR about the way that page reads, and means to an overseas subscriber

I do not like,or understand this new set-up!


SylviaInCanada Report 11 Jun 2013 03:46


I do use ................

.......... but I cannot see the Genes Extra page without using the link that Thelma gave

so I would not have know anything about this if Gai had not started this thread.
