No new FamilyFinder matches since mid-January for me. Perhaps a few mitochondrial and Y low level matches but that is all. I did get an interesting update from one of the volunteers of a project though so that was good. And I always appreciate all of your posts in the forums. Hopefully, new FamilyFinder matches will start to come in today.

I hope so too since I ordered early February 1....

They seem to come in batches for everyone. For me, working backwards, the dates were:

27 Jan 2012
17 Jan 2012
30 Dec 2011
20 Dec 2011
12 Dec 2011 (only 1, usually 7-20 range)
28 Nov 2011

I expect the holidays pushed things around a bit, but roughly every two weeks. I expect another "drop" any day now.

Whole bunch of new matches dated 2/9 and 2/10

All 4 of the accounts I manage got FF matches, anywhere from 3 to 10, all dated 2/10. Also got a couple of distant Y-DNA matches dated 2/9.

None of the names in the FF matches look familiar, so I'm assuming these are holiday sale FTDNA kits, not transfer kits from 23andMe.

I think you may be right. I got 4 new ones, none close, and the names are not familiar. However, I don't know the names of several hundred of my 23andMe matches.

I just wish people would include a surname list and Gedcom if they have one! None of my 4 had any info. Hopefully they will add it later.

These days, I am grateful for any matches that show up on my list or that of a relative. Tonight we received a grand total of 4 new distant cousins (4th and 5th) between us. A few ancestral surnames look familiar and one ancestral homeland noted is the same as that of my great-grandmother (Sweden). So overall, as far as my family history search goes, it was a good day. Hang in there everyone! All those little bits and pieces of information we are gleaning from this site will add up!

I just got 11 new matches dated 10 Feb. One with a gedcom and one with surnames. I think these are from the sale and not transfers.
