Family Tree DNA's summer sale

Family Tree DNA are having a summer sale. The Family Finder is being offered at the lowest ever price of $69. Even with the currently weak pound that is still a bargain at just £52. If you've not already done a Family Finder test at FTDNA now is your chance. FTDNA have the advantage of a truly international database as well as providing a welcome range of additional tools such as a chromosome browser to let you get the best out of your results. You can also join all the relevant projects. Here is the relevant section of the e-mail I received from Family Tree DNA with the details of the tests that are included in the sale. I've included the sterling prices in red.

Dear Group Administrators,
Summer in Houston means relentless heat. Ruthless sunshine punctuated by the occasional thunderstorm. The hum of air conditioner compressors is the season’s soundtrack.
You know what else it means?
Yep. You got it. It means the Sizzlin’ Summer Sale is about to launch!
This summer the focus is on bundles that include Family Finder: Y37 + Family Finder, Y67 + Family Finder, FMS + Family Finder, and Comprehensive Genome (FF+Y67+FMS). The prices are in the chart below.
But wait - there’s more!
The heat must have gotten to Bennett because the only individual test he’s reduced pricing on is Family Finder, which will be $69. You read that right. $69 US DOLLARS!
(For those of you who are new and may not be aware, Bennett Greenspan is the founder and president of FTDNA.)
Not only has he set the Family Finder price ridiculously low, but he’s not giving us an end date for this sale. It could last a few days or a few weeks - we don’t know and he’s not telling!
So what we’re saying is, take advantage of these great prices while they’re hot!
Here’s the pricing: 
Retail Pricing
Sale Price
Group Price
Family Finder
$69     (£52)
Y37 + Family Finder
$218 (£164)
Y67 + Family Finder
$317 (£238)
Comprehensive Genome (FF+Y67+FMS)
$489 (£367)
FMS + Family Finder
$258 (£194)

**Please note - these bundles must remain bundles. If you buy at the sale price for future use, the entire bundle must be used on one tester. Canceling tests from the bundle will cause tests to revert to regular price.**

How does this DNA test differ from this one I found for 29?

Connect My DNA is what we call a "genetic astrology" test. In other words it's complete nonsense. See the section on this page about Connect My DNA:

Thank you, I never realized they had 'fake' ones out there.
