Family Tree DNA: $10 discount until Sunday 14 May
Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) has a special offer for Mother's Day, which falls this weekend in the USA.  It's a $10 discount on FTDNA's Family Finder test, which focuses on the autosomal DNA inherited from your direct ancestors on both maternal and paternal sides.

The test is designed to find matches in FTDNA's database within the last five generations. The Family Finder package also includes:

myOrigins – mapping tool that provides a detailed ethnic and geographic breakdown of where your ancestors came from

ancientOrigins – a tool that maps your ancient ancestors’ migration routes and shows the amount of autosomal DNA you still carry from ancient European civilizations.

Family Matching – an enhanced feature that enables users to sort confirmed DNA matches by maternal and paternal lines

Chromosome Browser – an exclusive tool for comparing matching segments of DNA (blocks) with your genetic matches

The $10 discount reduces the cost of the Family Finder testing kit from $79 to $69. Shipping is extra. The offer ends on Sunday, 14 May, and is available to all researchers, not just those in the USA.
