Family Tree DNA will begin a month-long Sale tomorrow, 1 August 2017, at 1000 CDT.  I imagine you will receive an e-mail about this shortly.

For new tests, the following sales prices will go into effect until 31 August:

Family Finder - $69.00
Y-DNA37 - $139.00
Y-DNA37 and Family Finder - $198.00
Full Mitochondrial DNA Sequencing - $159.00
Full Mitochondrial DNA Sequencing and Family Finder - $218.00
Y-DNA67, Full Mitochondrial DNA Sequencing, and Family Finder - $430.00

For upgrades, the following sales prices will be offered until the end of next month:

Any Partial Mitochondrial DNA tests to Full Sequencing - $119.00
Y-DNA12 to Y-DNA37 - $69.00
Y-DNA25 to Y-DNA37 - $35.00
Y-DNA37 to Y-DNA67 - $79.00
Y-DNA37 to Y-DNA111 - $168.00
Y-DNA67 to Y-DNA111 - $99.00

And most stunning of all:

Big Y - $395.00

Let put the last in context a few ways.  First, Big Y was on Sale for $425.00 at the last DNA Day Sale in late April.  Second, if you happened to be able to grab one of the extremely rare $125.00 off coupons at the last Year-End Sale, you could have purchased Big Y for $400.00.  Third, FTDNA actually changed their minds today and sent out an update to project administrators, notifying them that the original Sales price for Big Y, which was going to be $449.00, was instead being reduced to just $395.00.

As a result of all of this, if any qualifying Project Member wants to also pick up the $25.00 Testing Incentive Award for any of the yDNA tests during this Sales period, I will waive my pre-notification requirements because of the extended time that we have.  But you must not wait too long to start the process.  I need to verify that the test order pertains to a current or new male Barker and transmit your written permission to FTDNA Groups that I can order the test for this person.  That is a legal requirement that FTDNA has.
