I received the following information from Family Tree DNA this evening. Not only is there a sale, but Family Finder is $69. I think that’s the cheapest I’ve ever seen an autosomal DNA test. I love sales because that always means more people testing their Y, mitochondrial and autosomal DNA – and more cousins for those of us who have already tested!!!
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:
|Product||Retail Pricing||Sale Price||Group Price|
|Y37 + Family Finder||$268||$228||$218|
|Y67 + Family Finder||$367||$327||$317|
|Comprehensive Genome (FF+Y67+FMS)||$566||$499||$489|
|FMS + Family Finder||$298||$258||$258|
**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.**
We’ll be emailing customers starting tomorrow morning, but we wanted to let project administrators know now.
You can click here to order after the sale starts, which is probably tomorrow, August 3rd.
