    Big-Y Sales?

    Hey everybody,

    I was wondering if anybody on this forum would know if ftDNA will be offering any sort of summer/seasonal sale for the Big-Y test? I'm classified as "L1029 C2D British Sub-cluster" over at the R1a1a and Subclades project, and I just received my Big-Y results. I contacted another member of this small sub-cluster, and he seems willing to participate in the Big-Y if there is a sale... so I hope there will be one soon.

    Does ftDNA have a history of such seasonal sales?

    Thanks,
    Brent.B

    Brent.B, FTDNA had a sale last year when they introduced the Big-Y, but not since then. There are many who are waiting for the next sale.

    We pray that FTDNA will discount the Big Y for Father's Day.

    Just got advanced notice that Big-Y will be on sale for Father's Day. $100 off the normal price of $695. In addition, those who have already taken the Big-Y are supposed to receive a $100 coupon good toward another Big-Y. So if such a person gives their coupon to someone else who orders the Big -Y during this sale, the effective price will be $495. General announcement should be made in the next day or two. Also there will be a sale on Family Finder (autosomal) tests.

    Any insight on a haplogroup specific deep clade test? My groups' admin has suggested waiting for this deep clade test since $400+ is out of my DNA budget.

    Your admin may be able to coordinate to get four unrelated guys with no SNPs but broadly similar STRs to pool together to fund a test for just one of you. Then each of you is only out about $125 plus the prices of SNPs, and you stand a decent chance of being positive for some SNPs.

    So far, I have only received one such coupon, even though I ordered multiple Big Y tests. I hope I get one coupon per Big Y order.

    Has anyone received multiple coupons yet?
