I received an e-mail today from Helix announcing a month-long celebration of DNA Day (April 25th). Details in the e-mail were a bit sparse, but I expect it will include some of their tests being on sale at different points in the month. Unfortunately, I haven’t figured an easy way to determine what tests are on sale at Helix, short of clicking on dozens of tests on their shopping page. The first one I checked was Geno 2.0 Next (on sale for $69.95 + $30 if you need to order a Helix kit, regular price is $199.95). You can also purchase the kits at National Geographic ($79.95 if you purchase two or more kits at the same time and no additional charge for the Helix kit if you don’t already have one). If you already have a Helix kit, order the test from Helix, but if you don’t and are needing two or more, then order them from National Geographic.
You can read the full announcement at: https://www.helix.com/blog/dna-day-2018-month-of-celebration/. In general, FamilyTree DNA and usually the other companies (Ancestry DNA, MyHeritage, and 23andMe, not sure about Living DNA) typically have a DNA Day sale sometime during April. I will blog a separate post about ongoing sales from the major companies in a little bit or tomorrow.
