FamilyTreeDNA: Sale on full mtDNA test!!!

There's sale going on for genetic genealogists at Family Tree DNA.

If you have already tested for the HVR2 mtDNA test, you can upgrade to the full mtDNA sequence for $189 (normally $239). This test will help pinpoint more relevant genetic information for your maternal lines.

The catch: It's limited to the first 250 people who sign up - first-come, first-tested. - and pay with a credit card when ordering.

Here's the note from Family Tree DNA:

Dear Family Tree DNA Customer,

Last fall Family Tree DNA offered a significant discount for anyone who wanted to order the Full mtDNA sequence.

The response was overwhelming, and, as in prior Full mtDNA sequence sales, we crushed the lab. Despite the fact that we had more lab technicians and more equipment, the volume was far above what we could reasonable handle. As we have now caught up with the huge backlog, we are prepared to offer the Full mtDNA sequence test again at a promotional price, but with lessons learned!

We will offer this test at discount for a very limited amount of time, and we will limit the number of orders to 250 on a first come, first serve basis. Payment must be made by credit card at the time of the order. The sale will begin now and once we have sold 250 tests we will discontinue this sale price and return prices to the current level.

By limiting the quantity of this promotion, we expect results to be posted within 6 weeks.

We don’t have a way to show how many have been ordered, so price will be your notice.

HVR2 to Mega Was $239 Now $189

Now's your chance, but you'd better hurry!
