How do I use a discount code or voucher on Findmypast?

From time to time, promotional codes are made available so you can take advantage of great value offers from Findmypast. There are two types of promotional codes redeemable on Findmypast - discount codes and vouchers.

How to use a Findmypast discount code

Discount codes are usually used for time-limited special offers and are distributed in a variety of ways. Often, you’ll receive a link that already has the discount code applied. Following that link will bring you to our membership page with the discount automatically applied and you can continue to pay as normal.  Always check the expiry date on all Findmypast discount codes to ensure they’re valid.

In cases where you need to apply the discount code manually:

  1. Visit the membership page
  2. Choose your subscription plan and select subscribe
  3. Enter the discount code in the box on the left side of the page and select the ‘Apply code’ button. Your discount will be applied and you should see a reduction in the relevant price(s).


How to use a Findmypast voucher code

Voucher codes are unique codes that are usually used when the same offer is being made available to a large number of people and no time limit necessarily applies, like society discounts.

To redeem a voucher code:

  1. Visit the voucher code page
  2. Enter the code and select the ‘Submit’ button
  3. If you’re not already signed up with Findmypast, complete your membership details. If you’re already a member, simply log in with your email address and password after you’ve entered the voucher code
  4. Once you’ve signed up or logged in, you’ll see an on-screen message confirming your voucher code has been activated
