Autosomal Tests
FamilyFinder is on sale for $89, regularly $99.
Autosomal Transfers (from AncestryDNA and 23andME (v3 chip only) had a pricing change about a month ago so this "test" is not on sale. Initial transfers are now free for a peek at your top twenty matches.

Test Upgrades
There are also holiday savings on the various mtDNA and Y-DNA test upgrades. See the image of the savings chart above for specifics. An upgrade will add additional markers to a previously purchased test without having to do another spit swab (as long as the DNA sample is still viable.)

AND Mystery Rewards -- New This Year
Each week until the end of the year, every FamilyTreeDNA customer will get a mystery reward link in his/her myFTNDA dashboard. (Remember, each tested person is separate at FamilyTree DNA so each test you administer has its own dashboard.) The reward, which can value up to $100, will vary because it is randomly generated. It could be an additional percentage off current savings, a specific dollar amount on top of current savings, specific savings off of specific tests, or something similar. You can use your Mystery Reward for yourself or gift it to another person. Each Mystery Reward offer is good for that week only. A new Mystery Reward is generated for each week so sign in each week to see your special offer for that week.

We'll let you know when we see any other holiday DNA sales.

See you soon at the Mt. Clemens Public Library!
