Family Tree DNA – Final Mystery Rewards Coupon

happy holidays

Did you receive money in your Christmas stocking?  Well, now is the time to spend it during the last 3 days of Family Tree DNA’s holiday sale.

New coupons were issued today, but it seems that while Christmas is over, April Fool’s Day has arrived early.

There was a bit of an error in the Mystery Rewards notification e-mails sent today.

From Family Tree DNA:

If you received an email about a Mystery Reward that showed no discount and that the reward was expired, please disregard it.

****PLEASE LOG DIRECTLY INTO THE KIT TO GET THE VALID MYSTERY REWARD CODE.*****

We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience this may have caused.

So, never mind the e-mail and click here to sign in to your account and click on your mystery reward gift box one last time!  Post any codes you’re willing to share in the comments.  And remember, the sale ends at midnight, Houston time, on the 31st.

Happy New Year!

  1. $5 off Family Finder R5JVYHZ
    $10 off any purchase R5MK0UKV and R5XO3HEE

    Thanks for telling us about the mistake. When I opened that I thought what an April Fools joke.

  2. FTDNA is losing the battle.  The consistent errors plaguing its current promotion are losing customers. My first “mystery gift” from ftdna was $100. off the Big Y. Seconds after the message appeared on screen it was replaced by one saying that I couldn’t use it because I was female and offering $30. off another test.  I had submitted my brother’s sample in 2006 for the Y-dna test and I have subsequently upgraded it at my expense to the y-dna 67 level. I had planned on doing the Big Y test for him whenever I could afford it. This experience and the ham-handed way they tried to make up for it turned me off.  Now, I am sitting with several other “mystery awards” I’d like to apply towards converting some relatives testing at other places to ftdna Family Finder.  However, they have the phone off the hook and I can’t figure out how to do it. They are trying to compete with ancestry on a shoe-string budget. I am appalled they don’t understand that. I have so many family members who have signed up with ancestry.  Really bad business model.  I hate to see it as I have invested thousands of dollars into these ftdna accounts.  Carol A.

    • Did you try going to your family members FTDNA account and using the Upgrade Button and then looking for the test that is on their list? Then you purchase and use your discount coupon as you check out. I and my friends have used several coupons and had no trouble at all. I have had no problems with FTDNA since starting with them in 2008. Sorry your experience was not as you hoped.

    • I doubt their phone is off the hook – my guess is they are overwhelmed. They provide a superior product to Ancestry and have been doing it since the beginning. They have tools for analysis that ancestry does not provide. And they keep your sample for 25 yrs so you can later do a mtdna or Y-dna if you need to.

      I have received excellent service – sometimes, Bennett has contacted me directly. I have also received answers from customer service. Just email them from the contact us page.

    • Carol If you can get your relatives to transfer their raw data to FTDNA for the free trial which will unlock the top 20 matches, then have that person get 4 referals (the other relatives) the original test will be unlocked for free. Another way is to do the transfer and pay 39 (which is a sale price now) and then use one of the $10 discount codes on any test and pay only 29. That is a real bargain.

      There are codes listed on this site which was posted from one of the facebook genealogy sites. I have added many of the codes that I have received on this also. Good luck

    • DEAR ANN: I want to THANK YOU personally for sharing the $100 off Big Y. I’ve been a hawk-in-waiting for this opportunity. You’ve helped to make that possible. May your Higher Power (by whom name you call), grant you and your family immeasurable blessings!!!

  3. Roberta, do you know if the $50 coupon we got for previous Big Y purchases has to be used during the sale or is it good any time?
    Thanks

      • Roberta, I found the answer to your question, you wrote in your email:
        Anyone who previously took the Big Y also should have already received a $50 discount coupon for another Big Y which doesn’t expire until December 31st.

        Nancy Rhoads— hope that helps

  4. Still no mystery box when I log into my account. I did get the April Fools Day one with no discounts!

    Does anyone have a $10.00 or more coupon for full sequence dna ? Thanks Nancy

  5. Hi Roberta, Never mind my last email, as I had to log out and back in to see the mystery surprise. Do you think there will be anymore coupons this week? I know how retail goes having worked in sales, and last minute sales do come up. 🙂 How long is the coupon good for, I didn’t see an expiration on it.

  6. $ 100 BIG Y Coupon must be used by Dec 31 R5T6P4SE

    I was lucky with over 4 $100 coupons during Dec. This is my last one. Good Luck. Enjoy.

  7. If anyone has a code for FF (more than $10) it would be much appreciated! 🙂

    I’ll share mine as soon as a friend confirms he doesn’t want it.

  15. Anybody know how to a custom Y-DNA SNP online that isn’t on the “advanced SNP order form?” I’ll try calling them tomorrow but being the last sale day,

    • It turns out that the particular SNP (FGC13620) that I wanted to order isn’t available at this time according to FTDNA. They suggested that I contact my Group Administrator who recommended I take the test. Too bad as a good soul has donated the cost of me taking the test.

      • Richard Rocca, project admin for the U152 subclades project has applied for FGC13620 to become available as an individual snp at FTDNA and it has been accepted. Once the primer has been developed it won’t be long before you will be able to purchase FGC13620 on its own at FTDNA.

      • Thanks for the update! Richard recommended I test the SNP but I apparently missed the point that until someone orders the test it doesn’t exis and you can’t order it. Good news is FTDNA said my discount will apply when the test is ready.

  16. To order an SNP test at FTDNA, open the “Haplotree & SNPs” under your yDNA options. You can should see “Add” next to SNP’s that you can order.

  19. I’m interested in any ESTES connections to the surname TATUM that you know of. There seems to be a connection in FTDNA, but I do not understand it. Thanks.
