Please note - when they say "Coupons may not be applied to upgrades" - they mean from one level of YDNA to another level, or from one level of MtDNA to another level --
but if you have, for example, done a YDNA Test and want to "upgrade" by ordering a FamilyFinder Test - that is fine, and not considered an Upgrade.
Similarly, if have done a FamilyFinder Test, but not a YDNA Test - ordering a YDNA-67 or Y-111 as an "upgrade" so on the same Kit - that is fine and not included in the "not applied to upgrades"

Pretty sure about this. Can others corroborate?

Think they should be a bit clearer on this, so folks do not order new separate kits when they do not have to -- and in fact should not!

What you describe (taking a Y test after a FF test) is not an upgrade. That is an addon (add-on).
