My Big-Y came back as R-YP610. Still seems to be a rather small group of people that have tested so far.

Not sure - as FTDNA advises people of expected completion when they get their order acknowledgement - and we don't see those messages.

I assume 4-6 weeks after FTDNA gets your sample.  Two big variables - FTDNA has new equipment which is speeding up some results and a big sale has been underway for several weeks - meaning lots more orders to process, which typically slows down results.

These are not as expensive as I thought they would be. How long does it take to get the results Terry?

Hello! My husband was adopted and I am trying to understand how to do all of this and how it works.  From what I have found, his surname could possibly be Griffin.  He had a DNA test done thru ancestry, and have met some awesome people. Without going into details, the story I have unfolded so far leaves me asking more questions. I could really use some help understanding all of this. Just overwhelming! Thank you. Born in Santa Maria, CA on April 6, 1963 at Our Lady of Perpetual Hope?(Health?)

The coupon exchange is operating again this year.  If you want a coupon for a test, you can often find it there.  And if you have coupon that you are not going to use, then you can post it there so others can use it.

You might want to have several codes with you when your order or have the exchange open in another window because sometimes a code has already been used.  If that happens to you, simply insert another code in the appropriate FTDNA order box.  If you do use a code from the exchange, please be sure to strike it out so that others know that it has been used.
