Lost of Black Friday deals listed by Claire Santry http://www.irish-genealogy-toolkit.com/Irish-genealogy-special-offers.html


The rootsireland one mentioned by Claire is worth getting. What I liked was they allowed me to add the reduced subscription on to the end of my current one. Often these deals are only for new subscribers.

I already took advantage of their last 1/3 off offer earlier this year but it's a really good deal, and I've used it lots.

Last day for special offers / reduced prices on FTDNA is tomorrow. Some good value to be had for those interested

This may be the last day for 15% discount on the annual subscription. The promo code is displayed on the site as "Xmas15".

Lots of good offers for Ancestry.com alright. Always frustrating that there's never offers for Ancestry.co.uk tho. My tree, etc seems to be with the .co.uk site, so can never benefit from the .com offers!

It's all the same site - they just move you to the closest one but it's not like Amazon where you can have different wishlists on the .com vs the .co.uk
My tree is there regardless of which url.

The $99 offer for six months really is $99 +tax of $22.77. = $121.77. Why the tax for a non-US resident?

I don't know - that is surprising. Suppose you could claim it back via that taxback.com crowd.

Basically the site quotes all US prices ex-VAT and then applies the VAT of the US State (or country if you're outside the US) your address is registered in for .com offers. .co.uk etc will always quote the price including VAT.

I guessed that, based on the % tax amount, I just wanted to ascertain why it could be due. I've since found out that the tax law changed in 2015 and Revenue Ireland deemed the tax on electronic services to be due in the country of the customer.
