Ancestry.com is selling their Family Tree Maker software for a very discounted price. The 'deal' part of the offer is that you get a one-year subscription to Ancestry with the purchase. I think this means that the subscription is to the most expensive "World Deluxe" offering which costs $24.95 a month if paid annually. Even if it is for the U.S. subscription; that cost is $12.95 a month if paid annually.
I personally don't care for Family Tree Maker and will probably toss the unopened box to get the subscription. Who cares you say? Well, here's the "But Wait, There's More" part of the deal....
You additionally get other very valuable software with the package, but first, remember -- ANCESTRY.COM- 1 YEAR SUBSCRIPTION FOR $15.49!

How did the old commercial go? .... "Try it Mikey!" "You'll like it!"
Update: 9 Oct 2007
I hope folks were able to get a copy before the vendor realized they had a 'hot' selling item. They have increased the price to $29.95 as of 9 Oct.
It is still a good price when you take into consideration the year subscription to Ancestry.
