Gosh Gins is so so easy to wind up...

I know you understand the principle of it all Numpty...

In NZ you can get any book you want ..if not in the shops they will order it or with the internet there are so many on line places one can purchase from. The Book Depository is very good they don't charge for postage.

Hi Eringobragh1916

Neither the July edition nor the magazine website currently has the £6 offer as far as I can see.
The magazines current offer is £38.90 by direct debit for 13 magazines and a gift worth £35.
Unfortunately I am unable to confirm on here what that gift is!

Never heard of the makes Sylvia...probably little unknown vineyards

Noticed a few NZ wines which Percie may know


Eringobragh1916 Report 11 Jun 2013 19:47

Nameless one...the Magazine offer 6 for £6 is avaliable to anyone subscribing to the Magazine.....Not exclusive to members of GR....


SylviaInCanada Report 11 Jun 2013 19:45

that sounds like a VERY good deal!

what's the wine like????????????

and where is it from?

do you think they would ship to Canada?

but I'm only interested if it is GOOD wine

not that I drink ........................... I'd give it away as presents to friends :-D

I looked up this Naked Wines and they are offering for a first purchase at least


Less angel discount:£62.89

Less your voucher:£20.00

You pay:£29.99

sounds better than the GR offer to me, if I was a drinker that is

Pers, we really do need a 'tongue in cheek' emoticon...........sigh

If you want some 'real' books, you'll need to look further than NZ :-P

NB: Just for Pers........I do get the 'principle' point being made here, honest, I do!

Goes this way, to bang head on wall>>>>>>>>>>

I thought you had solved the problem - it is the same as the Home page - once in very many tries it might appear!

This is the reply I got when I complained about not having Extras': -

Thanks for getting in touch.

Genes Extras is a collection of exclusive offers and competitions for our standard and platinum members living in the UK. It’s our way of saying thank you for subscribing with us.

You’ll see three offers at any one time, with one new offer each month. Our partners are offering great discounts on Family History magazines, days out and more. There’s also a competition each month with some great prizes.

You can view the offers and competition at any time via the box where we advertise which records etc. we have on the right hand side of your homepage. Alternatively, the following link will take you directly to the Genes Extras page:

We’re only able to offer Genes Extras to UK members at the moment as the partners we work with are UK-based and will only ship discounted products to the UK. We’re sorry about this, but we are looking at ways to reward our overseas members too.

6 issues for £6 is a bargain for us in the UK - but when I decide to subscribe to a magazine I always wait until the free gift is worth having!

I can find no mention of this on my Home Page

But can using the link posted

How I love GR.

On my page I have the Genes Extra on the left hand side and across the banner I can start my family tree for a free 14 day trial on Ancestry.

Why advertise the Genes Extra on when we can't access it.



Elaine Report 11 Jun 2013 10:07

Well said,SinC and's not that people would WANT the offers,just that they'd like the choice.

Would it not have been easier to give members living abroad the chance to pay p/p if they really wanted something?


Persephone Report 11 Jun 2013 09:33

Gins you digress it is not about books and wine..

But if it is wine you want to discuss

I should think NZ and Australia would more than likely have better wine than a lot of other places.

Do you want to discuss books Gins.. we do have a vast library in our house 2 - 3 bookshelves of reference books... a massive collection of NZ books... all of our family are well read. That's why we are good at pub quizzes.
