  • Big Y: where is the link to buy?

    Hi Guys, my first post here. I cannot find a link on the FTDNA website on where to buy this test?

    What is the current cost and turn about time?

    Thanks.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Have you bought another Y-DNA test from FTDNA?

      No, not for myself.

      Just had a couple of kits arrive today for both my Mum and Dad.

      Cheers, Ade.

        I don't think FTDNA currently offers the Big Y to new customers (who do not already have a kit and an account).

        But you could simply order the Big Y on your father's kit (assuming he is your biological father).

        You could also ask whether anyone has a spare $100-off coupon. FTDNA distributed such coupons to some customers in June during a discount sale; but fine print in the coupon email says that it remains valid until June of next year.

            FTDNA just reduced the price of the Big Y to $595. If you can find a leftover $100-off coupon, that would yield an effective price of $495.

            If you have ordered since Thursday--i.e., if your order has not yet gone to lab--you should be able to call FTDNA to get an adjustment to the new price.

                Can you access this page: https://my.familytreedna.com/big-y.aspx

                By the way, on that page FTDNA claims that Big Y has "10 Million base-pair coverage - more than any other Y-DNA test on the market." FGC actually covers 14 million bp.
