I very recently became a member of AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) and happened to make an interesting discovery related to one of the benefits AARP members can receive in the form of discounts.
It appears that AARP members can receive a 30% discount to a new personal Ancestry.com subscription. I had no idea about that. I have never heard that mentioned to me from anyone that has attended our genealogy programs over the years before I became an AARP member myself.
You must be a new subscriber to Ancestry.com. The 30% discount is good for that first year subscription. After the first year the subscription rate reverts to the normal rate in place at the time.
Not having heard about such a benefit I thought I would post this so other AARP members that have an interest in genealogy who are not currently subscribed to Ancesty.com can take advantage of this great discount offered by Ancestry.com.
And if you are subscribed to Ancestry.com already as an AARP member and have not taken the discount with an initial subscription, you can obtain the discount with your next renewal to Ancestry.com.
I just happened to be reviewing an introductory publication to new AARP members that listed all of the discounts that AARP members can obtain from a multitude of services and products. The Ancestry.com discount was included in this list.
Since many of the AARP discounts are in the 10% to 15% range, this offer really stood out from the pack.
You can see more about this offer from the Ancestry.com site and the AARP site at:
Check out the AARP link and the Ancestry.com link mentioned above for a better understanding of how to obtain the 30% discount subscription as well as to understand the restrictions that apply towards the discount.
What a pleasant surprise to see this great discount offered to AARP members.
