Helix – some of the individual tests may be on sale, but you would need to check each one as the sales come and go on a regular basis.

HomeDNA  Many of the below test kits are available at CVS Pharmacy, Rite Aid Pharmacy, Walgreens, and Wal-Mart which would save you any applicable shipping costs, but would be subject to local sales tax.

Promethease Regular price uploads start at $12 with some uploads running more. They have offered free uploads several times in the past and will probably do it again in the near future.

TeloYears prices: TeloYears Health $99 TeloYears Health + Ancestry $169 (regular price $199, but seems to be a standard discount as opposed to a sale price).

TribeCodeTribecode – $99 regular price for Advanced Ancestry; ordered through TeloYears and appears to be the Ancestry/ethnicity portion only .

uBiome  regular prices ranging from $89 to $399. This isn’t a regular DNA test like many of the others. It checks between 1 and 5 sites for bacterial DNA (mouth, skin, nose, genital, gut). I have taken this test in the past when it was on sale as I was curious as to what it would show.

Veritas  here’s a link to their 30x read DNA kit: It appears to be $999 for their 30x read based on what somebody who ordered the kit reported for pricing. For additional information, here’s a link to the company’s PDF:

WeGene regular price or free upload of your 23andMe (including the latest v5 chips) or Ancestry raw data. –
regular prices as YSEQ rarely does sales although they occasionally will do a sale. Will continue checking in case they do a sale for DNA Day. Prices range, depending on if you want an individual Y-DNA SNP or various STR ranges, mtDNA (several options) to a 15x read, 30xread, or 50xread full DNA test. 15x read: $740; 30x read: (+ $600 above 15x read price) ; 50x read: (+$1,430 above 15x read price) ; Other Extras (price is in addition to whatever read you order) add $90 if you want USB drive sent to you (otherwise, you can download your results through a link for no additional cost; Sanger extra Y-DNA results (up to 10 Y-DNA SNPs): $100; you receive 4 cheek swabs and you need to use all four and mail them back to YSEQ. Individual SNPs tend to run $18. YSEQ also offers Y-STR testing, mtDNA, and Haplogroup panels. It’s a good alternative to FTDNA in some ways, but doesn’t offer matching.
