Fold 3 marks Women's History Month with special offer

Fold 3, the specialist military database, is marking Women's History Month with a $30 saving on its one-year subscription. It reduces the price from US$79.95 to $49.95.

A Fold 3 subscription provides access to more than 550 million military records from around the world.

The discount will expire at 11:59pm MT on Tuesday 31 March, and is not available for renewal of current subs.

Note that the discounted subscription will automatically renew at list price after the introductory offer; if you don't want to renew, you can simply cancel before the date comes round.
