I must be thick - can't see it

Have you found it yet AnnC?



AnnCardiff Report 19 Dec 2012 18:42

thanks for that link - this was also on that posting

From the Subscriptions and renewals section in the FAQ under the Help tab at the top of this page

How much does it cost to renew?

Renew your subscription from 2 weeks before or up to 4 weeks after your renewal date, and you’ll only pay the original price of your subscription package. And if you choose continuous renewal, you’ll keep paying the original price. But if you renew your annual subscription anytime from 4 weeks past your renewal date, you’ll pay our current prices.

Just put this on the other thread but will add here too:

I am due to renew in Feb, have been a continuous member since 2005 and have recently paid £9.95 I think it was, for a year's membership. It's a bit of a pain if we are to be charged more, half the 'improvements' we haven't asked for and have seemed to me to be unnecessary, so it annoys me that we have to pay extra for someone to keep fiddling around with things. I don't do much on my tree at the mo as can't get my head round it all, too much else going on so I just use General Chat for light relief and to keep in touch with people I have come to know over the years.

In these days of economic difficulty it seems a shame to up the charges, and maybe lose more old time members especially.

Sign of the times I suppose!

Oh, I had no idea. Thankyou for posting this.

I recently emailed GR to query the increase mine is due 24th dec.i paid the increase because they said the rise was due to add ons to the site ,and was told it works out at £1.33 a month,which when you think about it is good ,where else could you have fun support people search for rellies etc..Laugh ,cry , moan. swap recipes cratf family stuff.
so think about it peeps,ITS THE CHEAPEST PLACE ON THE INTERNET :-D



AnninGlos Report 19 Dec 2012 22:06

But surely at that price you can't search for relies, you have to pay more to do that.


Wendy Report 19 Dec 2012 22:09

have just emailed Gr after reading that some of you long term members are only paying 9.95.



JoyBoroAngel Report 19 Dec 2012 22:11

its still good value for money :-D


Wendy Report 19 Dec 2012 22:24

I agree Joy,very good value,but surely we should be given the same consideration
as we are long time members.



Wendy Report 20 Dec 2012 12:31

just had an email from GR ,they are gradually moving every member over to new fees, so be prepared .Its a good site and good value for money.



AnnMarieG Report 20 Dec 2012 14:17

Same as Liz I mainly come on here for the chat section as havnt had time to do 'my family' just lately but I did have a problem when I renewed this year as I had previously been a fully paid up member and am now only a standard member I had to pay the now going rate rate which was I think about £12.Have been a member for a long time so was a bit miffed to say the least. :-(


ElizabethK Report 20 Dec 2012 15:35

The current renewal sub price is £15.96 per annum

They have removed the discount we had for continuous membership

Estelle has just responded on the other Board.


AnninGlos Report 20 Dec 2012 17:08

that renewal annual price is only if you pay within so many days, it is the discounted price, other wise it is 20% more. that represents a 100% price rise for me so this time I shall be thinking hard whether I need to renew.

Thank you for drawing it to our attention Ann - I echo Mildred's words - What a flaming liberty!!!!

I think GR need to have a reality check!
