As always, check with the website to see current price as most of these tests frequently don’t have an end date, or the end date can end sooner or later than what was originally announced. Same goes for Amazon and EBay ordering. Last updated: April 20, 2018. Added AncestryDNA and MyHeritage DNA sale prices and HomeDNA (added April 17, 2018) as it has joined the DNA Day sale recently. No word yet on FTDNA DNA Day Sale).
Not seeing too many DNA sales at the moment, but I expect to see more as DNA Day (April 25th) approaches. Prices as of April 10, 2018 – will update as sales occur over the next few weeks. For most of the major companies below, you can often save on shipping by ordering through Amazon. Check Amazon’s prices first and also check EBay (but make sure you are ordering the correct kit based on the photo). If you see a higher price on Amazon, you can usually submit a link showing the lower price elsewhere and they will usually price match in a day or two. You can also find kits for many of these companies on EBay, both the Buy It Now or Auctions and those prices are frequently cheaper than Amazon or the company’s site. For those hesitant to purchase from EBay, EBay has a pretty solid customer support as they do a lot to make sure you the buyer are protected from people who may try and cheat you.
23andMe – regular price $99 or $199 (on 23andMe’s website and Amazon).
Ancestry DNA – $59 (regular price $99), but in the past, the sale price didn’t always show up for all Ancestry accounts. Still showing as $79 on my Ancestry order page, but others have reported it’s $99 on their order page and it’s also $99 on Amazon. As cheap as $44 – $50 on EBay. Updated April 20, 2018 to reflect sale price is now at $59.
DNATribes – no sale; regular price $119
Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) – no sale as of April 7, 2018, but usually has a sale in mid to late April. Regular price for their autosomal test runs $79 (instead of the $99 that’s typical for other DNA companies).
Full Genomes Corp. (FG or FGC) – no sale prices as of April 7, 2018. Hard to say if they will offer DNA Day sales or not. In the past, I don’t recall if they have offered DNA Day sales.
GenCove – upload your results from another DNA company for free or $59.99 if you order a kit from GenCove.
GenePlaza – no sale, free upload if you tested with most major DNA companies with small bonus (3 Euros if you do the free upload; 6 Euros if you order a kit from them) to spend on different apps they offer. Don’t see a price for how much the kit would cost if you needed to order one.
Geno 2.0 (Helix – U.S./FTDNA – non-U.S., or National Geographic direct) – Helix $69.95 + $30 if you need to order a Helix kit (regular price $199.95 which generally includes Helix kit cost, but kit runs $30 – 80 otherwise); $79.95 if you order two or more kits directly from National Geographic.
Helix – went through as many of the different Helix tests offered to see which are on sale (current as of April 14, 2018); worth noting that if you purchase a Helix kit, you generally don’t need to purchase it again (exception is if you do the Baby Glimpse test which requires a separate kit for both parents) so you are saving the cost of the kit price if you already have a Helix kit (savings range from $20 to $80 for the Helix kit). For Geno 2.0 Next,see above for the current sale price. https://www.helix.com/shop/insidetracker-goalgetter Goal Getter sale price $130 + $40 if you need a Helix kit (regular price $260 + $80 if you need a Helix kit. DNA Passport – not on sale, but the kit for it is on sale; regular price for test is $29.99 with $80 for Helix kit if you need one; temporarily the kit for this test is on sale for $20 N.B.: the Helix kit price is frequently based on which test you initially order and if the kit for a particular test is on sale with the Helix kit ranging from $20 to $80 with $80 being the regular price. Baby Glimpse – not on sale, but the kits are on sale: regular price is $99.98 + $160 (for two kits; one for each parent); current kit prices are $100 for two kits. My Traits Sports for iOS – not on sale, but the kits are: regular price $19.99 + $80 for Helix kit if you need one; sale price of kit is $20. embody DNA – sale price $49.99 + $20 if you need a Helix kit (regular price $109.99 + $80 if you need a Helix kit).

HomeDNA https://homedna.com/ – 20% off and free shipping. Use DNA20 or BESTDAY20 (both were listed in the e-mail I received today) for promo code. Sale ends April 26, 2018. HomeDNA is also available at CVS Pharmacy, Walgreens, Wal-Mart, and Rite Aid stores – kits may or may not be on sale at local stores (e-mail indicates promo code only available on HomeDNA’s website) so check prices at HomeDNA before checking out HomeDNA kits locally. HomeDNA also accepts raw data from 23andMe (v5 chip uploads not available, but they are working on making it available in the near future), Ancestry, FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA), and National Geographic (don’t say if it’s only FTDNA or Helix or if they accept both – most likely only FTDNA as Helix hasn’t made raw data available yet, but Helix has plans to offer raw data soon).
Living DNA -$79.99 -(regular price $159) – has been a sale price a while and no ending date is listed, other than Limited Time Discount. Update: price dropped from $99 to $79.99 for DNA Dale Sale. Doesn’t say how long the new price will be in effect.
