    I just ordered an FMS for my brother's Chinese wife, I don't think the FMS has been on sale for that low before (except maybe in combination with coupons).

    Am I missing something or is FTDNA actually offering a "Father's Day" sale without offering a sale price for BigY!? And what about a stand alone sale for Family Finder? Nothing!? I already have a 67 marker test, what am I supposed to do buy another one, just to get Family Finder on sale?

    That appears to be the case. I received my email this morning. I know they just had the BigY on sale a few months ago, but it would seem only logical to include it in a Father's Day sale.

    Well, what are you going to do? So I don't buy BigY now. From what I've been reading, now that they've removed all the mtDNA info from the bam files, FGC may be a better deal anyway.

    I was fortunate. I was in on the original BigY testing, got it at a reasonable price (can't remember the amount). It included the mtdna data. I submitted it to YFull when they first started, and was one of a few who received an analysis at no charge. So, I did not even pay the $49. For my halpogroup, YFull has done a great service. The combination of BigY and YFull has worked very well for me. Maybe FTDNA should heeds the comments here and lower the price often (or permanently) and/or return some of the data to the BAM file. I am sure the competition for things such as these is only going to increase.
