  • FTDNA Summer Sale, 2021

    FTDNA has started a Summer Sale, starting today, Monday 2 August, and going through until Tuesday, 31 August. There is sale pricing on Y-DNA, mtDNA, and Family Finder tests, for single products, bundles, and upgrades. The link to the sale is on the FTDNA home page.

    Thanks, I can't find anything about upgrade pricing. Since it would not be for me as I have already upgraded, I do not think that I can find the info through my account. Is the up to $50 saving on Y-DNA tests typical of FTDNA sales, or does one usually get better prices during the holiday sales?

    Appreciate it.

      The image at the end below, showing a table of the 2021 Summer Sale prices, was posted in the Activity Feed for a project in which one account I manage is participating. I hope it is all right if I repost it here. Roberta Estes usually will post the sale prices, but as of this minute, she hasn't done so for the 2021 Summer Sale at FTDNA.

      I would say that the winter Holiday Sale (usually starting after the late November U.S. Thanksgiving holiday, and ending on the last day of the year or a few days later), may have some slightly better prices, but it depends upon which test you want to purchase and if any "extra" coupons are offered (as were offered for a few years; we don't know how the new owner will handle such things).

      I checked my old emails, and found pricing for the winter Holiday Sale in 2020 (sale prices shown first). The sale prices for tests in bold were less expensive than the current 2021 Summer Sale; the items in blue text (non-bold, non-italic) were the same price as the current Summer Sale; items in italic were more expensive than the current Summer Sale:
      • Family Finder - $59 (reg. $79)
      • Y-37 - $99 (reg. $119) - $10 cheaper
      • Y-111 - $199 (reg. $249) - $20 cheaper
      • Big Y-700 - $379 (reg. $449) - $20 cheaper
      • FMS (mtFullSeq) - $139 (reg. $159)
      • Autosomal Unlock - not shown in Holiday 2020 prices
      • $9 off each additional test added to a bundle
      Upgrades:
      • Y-12 to 37 - $59 (reg. $79)
      • Y-12 to 67 - $139 (reg. $149)
      • Y-12 to 111 - $149 (reg. $199) - $10 cheaper
      • Y-25 to 37 - $39 (reg. $49)
      • Y-25 to 67 - $109 (reg. $119)
      • Y-25 to 111 - $139 (reg. $189) - $10 cheaper
      • Y-37 to 67 - $69 (reg. $89)
      • Y-37 to 111 - $119 (reg. $139)
      • Y-67 to 111 - $79 (reg. $89)
      • Y-12 to Big Y-700 - $359 (reg. $399)
      • Y-25 to Big Y-700 - $349 (reg. $389)
      • Y-37 to Big Y-700 - $319 (reg. $339)
      • Y-67 to Big Y-700 - $259 (reg. $279)
      • Y-111 to Big Y-700 - $229 (reg. $239)
      • Big Y-500 to Big Y-700 - $189 (reg. $209) - $10 cheaper
      • mtDNA to FMS - $79 (reg. $119)
      • mtPlus to FMS - $79 (reg. $119)
      There's no guarantee that any 2021 winter Holiday Sale will offer the same discounts as last year's, but it's possible it might.

            It may be overwhelming, but it's not unprecedented. There have been similar sales before.

              Oh, see. I'm not familiar and just saw this thread recently.
