FamilyTree DNA has End of Summer Y-DNA Sale until September 3

All Y-DNA tests and upgrades are on sale for a limited time at FamilyTree DNA. The sale runs until September 3, 2014 (likely 11:59 p.m. CDT).

Here is a run down of the savings on the various Y-DNA tests.

Y37 test (37 markers) regularly $169, on sale $129
Y67 test (67 markers) regularly $268, on sale $199
Y111 (111 markers) regularly $359, on sale $279
Big Y regularly $595, on sale $495

FamilyFinder + Y37 combined tests regularly $268, on sale $228
FamilyFinder + Y67 combined tests regularly $367, on sale $298
Comprehensive Genome (FamilyFinder/Y67/full mtDNA) combined test regularly $566, on sale $497
[Note: for the combo packages, only the Y-DNA portion is on sale. I checked this with a calculator. So you could just order the Y-DNA test itself rather than a combined test and wait for a sale on the FamilyFinder (autosomal) test and then upgrade your Y-DNA test to add FamilyFinder to it.]
 
Or upgrade a Y-DNA test already taken with FamilyTree DNA to add more markers to your test.
Upgrade a Y12 test to Y37 (12 markers to 37 markers) regularly $99, on sale $70
Upgrade a Y12 test to Y67 regularly $189, on sale $149
Upgrade a Y12 test to Y111 regularly $339, on sale $239

Sorry everyone, I have not found any coupon codes for a discount on the shipping costs that FamilyTree DNA charges.

To get an idea of previous sale prices from each of the three different Genealogy/DNA companies and their various tests, check out a post on the Genealogy Junkie blog site. This Genealogy Junkie post on DNA Test Sales is generally kept up-to-date -- i.e. it now includes this current sale. This listing gives you a good idea of what is a good sale price for a test and approximately when a sale might occur.

Remember, we will be revisiting the topic of DNA and Genealogy at our September meeting of Let's Talk...Genealogy. 

See you soon at the Mt Clemens Public Library!
