Big Y upgrade is now $449 [note: The Big Y upgrade sale price has also been reported as $395. This cost difference may be due to participation in a Y-DNA Project. FTDNA Project administrators and their participants often get a small price break on test kits.]
If you already have a DNA test at Family
Tree DNA and want to upgrade that test to include another type of DNA
test that is on sale and buy an upgrade to your existing test, simply sign into that particular DNA test kit and
then place the order. You will need to do this for each test separately
if you plan to upgrade multiple tests.
Shipping and taxes are extra which
vary depending on where the test is being shipped. Shipping to Michigan was $12.95 (the last we know) which covers receiving and sending the test.
Also, remember that Family Tree DNA also has a DNA Automsomal Transfer option.
Autosomal DNA Transfers can be done with 23andMe V3 or V4 tests and
AncestryDNA V1 and V2 tests. The initial transfer is free for a look at
your matches and is just $19 to unlock the test to see more and be able to contact matches. We have two posts here and here that explain DNA Autosomal Transfers.
Family Tree DNA does not require an annual subscription. Each test kit has its own login/password. You can manage your own test or allow (give access) to someone else to do so for you. Inside the test kit is a release form the tested person signs and sends with the samples so the DNA can be tested. There is also an option to indicate Beneficiary Information (who gets access to your DNA after you are gone) in the test kit account settings.
