I got the email offering the 50 free credits if you buy 50. However I have a subscription to Findmypast so don't bother with GR credits.

However I think they probably mean that you have until 26th November to purchase the credits and get the extra and not that you have to use them by then. I would imagine the credits last however long 50 credits would normally last.

If you want any look-ups doing just ask on the "find ancestors" board.

EDIT - just checked the terms and conditions and you DO have to purchase before 26th November but the credits DO last for 30 days.
