Family Tree DNA's Father's Day Sale


It is time to honor all fathers, past and present, and what a better way to do it than to give your father a Y-DNA test to allow him to see how he connects along his all male line back to the oldest known male ancestor.  This ancestor is the progenitor of all living males!  And what a way for fathers to leave a bit of themselves connected to their descendants for many, many years to come!

Honor your father with a Y-DNA test or an upgrade.

Family Tree DNA wrote to all their Project Administrators:

Since last summer's upgrade sale was such huge success, we thought we'd repeat history! Project Administrators like you played a very important role in last year's success by broadcasting the sale to project members. As your project members upgrade, the resolution of results and comparisons we provide greatly improves. So, please spread the word and we'll make this year's upgrade sale even bigger!

From June 12, 2013 through June 19, 2013, we will reduce the following prices.
Y-DNA 12 to 25 was $49 Now $35
Y-DNA 12 to 37 was $99 Now $69
Y-DNA 12 to 67 was $189 Now $148
Y-DNA 25 to 37 was $49 Now $35
Y-DNA 25 to 67 was $148 Now $114
Y-DNA 25 to 111 was $249 Now $224
Y-DNA 37 to 67 was $99 Now $79
Y-DNA 37 to 111 was $220 Now $188
Y-DNA 67 to 111 was $129 Now $109

To order an upgrade at these special prices your members can log into their personal pages with their kit number and password. Click on the "Order Upgrade" button located on the right side of the menu bar. Then click on the "Special Offers" button.


You have never ordered a test at FTDNA yet?
To get a test and use this upgrade sale:
1.  Go to the FTDNA website
2.  Click on ORDER NOW just after you read the announcement of the $49 Y-DNA test.
3.  Order a Y-12 marker test for $49
4.  Once you get the kit number and your password (It is on your order), call FTDNA to add the upgrade you desire.  The number, again, is:  713-868-1438.  You cannot order the upgrade from your personal website, but when you call the customer representative will take your request for an upgrade, and it will be honored when the test is "batched" (i.e., put in a group for testing).  You will need to watch your webpage to see when it is batched.  Look under ORDER HISTORY.  At that time, call the company and give them your kit number and credit card information for the upgrade.  They will honor the price as you requested it during the sale.

IMO, not the easiest situation for the customer, but it is a nice savings and worth the extra effort.
