Family Tree DNA have announced that their holiday sale is now on. The Family Finder test is reduced to $89 (£57). The 37-marker Y-DNA test is $129 (£82). The mtDNA full sequence test is $169 (£108). The Big Y test for advanced users is $525 (£334). A full list of prices is shown below. Upgrades are also included in the sale so it's a good opportunity to upgrade your kit if you've not already done so. E-mails are in the process of being sent out to group administrators. FTDNA customers will be notified separately. The sale prices are provided below. There is a new mystery reward discount scheme so you might be able to get a further reduction on the sale prices. If you receive a mystery award and you are unable to use it for any reason do make sure you share it with the fellow project members. I've copied below for reference the e-mail that was sent out to the genetic genealogy bloggers.
For this holiday season we’ve got an exciting new twist to the sale - Mystery Reward discounts! The Mystery Reward will be a randomized discount (up to $100 off) that can be applied on top of the already reduced Holiday Sale prices.
The Mystery Reward icon will appear on testers’ myFTDNA dashboard each week and the code will expire the night before the next Mystery Reward appears. When you click the icon, you'll to go to the reward page to open the Mystery Reward for savings up to $100. We’ll also send an email notification to the kit’s primary email address when a new code is available for use or sharing.
Best of all, there will be a new Mystery Reward every week. Customers can use the discount or can share it with a friend.
In addition, all customers who have purchased the Big Y test will receive a coupon for $50 off a Big Y test. That's ON TOP of the sale price. Yes, you read that right. A coupon that can be used on top of a sale price. The coupon can also be "regifted," meaning shared with a friend or fellow project member.
Thank you for helping us to generate excitement about the holiday sale. We appreciate all the cooperation you give us throughout the year!
