Happy dance! I got my invite for the new autosomal AncestryDNA test! It's my last chance (when was my first chance?), today only. And I have the money right now. Yay! Not.
I got this error message when I clicked the link in the email. I very quickly called customer support, which told me that I had received the invitation in error. Error!? The rep on the phone seemed to know exactly what was going on, so I'm thinking that this has happened before. But he assured me that I was still on the list.
Talk about going from high to low in zero seconds flat. I'm super disappointed. I kinda think that unless this email was sent out en masse to a few hundred thousand people that Ancestry.com should honor the invite they sent me. If it did go out to everyone they need to push through a retraction email pronto.
UPDATE: I just got a phone call from an ancestry.com rep who said that the email had gone out to some folks in error but that since it was their error they offered to let me go ahead and purchase the test. Yay! Thanks Ancestry.com!
Here's the email I received:
