Updated on a regular basis during August 2018 (NOTE: None of the Amazon links below are affiliate links); I try and check all of the DNA companies in this link on a daily basis. Updated for the last time late afternoon September 3, 2018: Removed the sticky and added link to Current September 2018 DNA Sales Last day for some sales (FTDNA, LivingDNA); other sales go through early September (HomeDNA, MyHeritage), and other sales have no specific end date; also check Amazon as they love to raise or lower prices (usually between a couple of dollars to $10+ on a semi-regular basis). Updated mid evening August 30, 2018: added HomeDNA promo code and a few minor price changes; updated mid-afternoon of August 28, 2018 with FTDNA Latest Sale Prices; August 27, 2018: added Helix 25% promo code TDF25OFF also check Amazon as their prices can change multiple of times during the month and on some days, it’s cheaper to get a DNA test from Amazon over what you find on the DNA company’s website; one change was fixing a link so it opened in a new browser window and some minor price changes due to Amazon raising or lowering prices which mirrors similar minor pricing updates for August 25 and 26, 2018; updated August 24, 2018: Added Silverberry Genomix promo code and noted 23andMe kits Health + Ancestry on Amazon went up a bit, but still below what 23andMe is offering. Added MyHeritageDNA $59 Labor Day Sale with free shipping if you order 2+ kits in one order and Amazon is offering MyHeritageDNA kits at $69 + free shipping and added AncestryDNA sale price on Amazon; updated August 22, 2018: Geno 2.0 Next is on sale for $69.95 on Amazon (free shipping), Helix, and National Geographic (Nat Geo); AncestryDNA – if you order 2+ kits in a single order, $99 first kit, additional kits in the order $89; August 21, 2018: 23andMe (Ancestry + Health) is on sale at Amazon for $190.99 (price has edged down several times so far this month after the big sale ended August 9th) and while MyHeritageDNA sale is over, Amazon still has a small sale ($75 with free shipping) and AncestryDNA extends its sale 24 hours; updated August 17, 2018: MyHeritageDNA price on Amazon as it went up a few dollars; updated Geno 2.0 Next price on Amazon (price may not go up or down daily on Amazon for Geno 2.0 Next, but it has changed at least 6 times since August 1st and that’s often enough); updated August 14, 2018: added FindMyPastDNA (they use LivingDNA kits, but they have a link on their website for ordering and will soon be selling the kits under FindMyPast similar to MyHeritage selling FTDNA kits under MyHeritage logo); updated August 10, 2018: added HomeDNA 20% discount code: FF2018 (good until August 12, 2018), added AncestryDNA sale $59 through August 20, 2018 and also available for same price at Amazon with free shipping, removed 23andMe sale price as it ended August 9, 2018; updated: noted MyHeritageDNA $69 is a sale price which is a recent change as they changed it July 19 to show $69 and no mention of regular price $79. Updated August 7, 2018 to change the URL for the Baby Glimpse test offered through Helix; updated wee morning hours of August 6, 2018: added LivingDNA sale price of $89; updated August 1, 2018: made the post sticky; added a number of extra Categories that I missed when I originally posted it. I also made a note about future changes to LivingDNA.
As always, check prices before you order! You can also check EBay and Amazon in case you find a lower price there, but make sure it’s for the same company and test. Some of the companies show an end date for their sale prices, but many don’t.
As of August 1, 2018 (original post was on August 1, 2018, and modified as needed), the following companies are offering DNA sales. I am also including the general pricing for a number of other DNA companies that aren’t offering sales right now. I will update this post as new sales are added or current sales end. Some of the companies offer Summer DNA Sales, but it’s hit or miss and the sale can start anywhere between June and September if companies decide to offer them.
Tests on Sale
23andMe: https://www.23andme.com/ on their website, it’s still regular price of $99 (Ancestry) and $199 (Ancestry + Health), but on Amazon, it was $189.00 (I lost count of how many times Amazon has raised or lowered the price for this 23andMe test since August 1st; think it’s the 9th or 10th time at least) for the Ancestry + Health kit and $98.99
$99 for Ancestry only kits – https://www.amazon.com/23andMe-Ancestry-Personal-Genetic-Service/dp/B01LZ5K87Z/ (prices still valid as of late evening of August 31, 2018). Keeping in the Sale Section on the likelihood that Amazon will put it back on sale in a day or two.
AncestryDNA: https://www.ancestry.com/dna/ – in addition to the $89 price discount for second and additional kits purchased in one order, Amazon has a discount of $94.98 (price current as of August 31, 2018, but Amazon changes the price every day or two) plus free shipping.
Don’t know if this is a targeted sale or available to everyone, but seeing on their website if I go to add a DNA test; I also see it if I am not logged into my account
SAVE NOW. Add more kits to your order for only $89/ea
Regular price is still $99 if you only want one kit, but additional kits are $89. Amazon still has regular price for the kits. Also, check EBay as you can often find Ancestry kits cheaper on it.
Dante Labs – https://us.dantelabs.com/collections/our-tests prices discounted below the prices listed here during Amazon Prime Day Sale, but are now back to the sale prices below. Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) – $499 (regular price $1,000) – on Amazon with free shipping; Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) – sale price $449.00 (regular price $750) – on Amazon with free shipping. The sale is still going, but no word on how long until they end it. Slightly lower price than earlier sales. Update July 12, 2018: Dante has added a new DNA test; it’s not on sale, but it’s $999 for 130x coverage of the Exome and 30x coverage for the rest of DNA.
DNA Passport – https://www.helix.com/shop/humancode-dna-passport/ $29.99 for test + $20 if individual needs Helix DNA kit (regular price of Helix kit is $80.00); check on Amazon since they keep raising and lowering prices on a somewhat regular basis (usually cheaper on Helix if you already have a Helix DNA kit) Note: this is not a sale if you don’t need a Helix kit for a person, but it’s one of the cheaper Helix kit prices currently available if you need a Helix kit (see Geno 2.0 Next above for a cheaper Helix kit if an individual needs one). Sometimes, Helix will offer a sale where Helix kit is free with some tests. In general, you only need one Helix kit/individual.
FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA): Family Tree DNA Summer Sale ends August 31, 2018 update: they offered me a one-time coupon for $5 off Family Finder. I originally posted about the sale at FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) Summer Sale Ends August 31, 2018 with a newer updated post at FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) Sale Update Ends August 31, 2018.
Family Finder (autosomal test; abbreviated FF for rest of post) $59 (regular price $79). on sale at Amazon for a bit less than the regular price of $79 ($75.99 with free shipping – lost track of how many times Amazon has changed prices on FF), but Amazon hasn’t price matched as of August 27, 2018. FF Listed on GroupOn with price changing between $64 and 65 every few days (latest GroupOn sale ends August 31, 2018, but they tend to renew it at the same price or a dollar higher or lower when the sale ends). You can also do a free transfer to MyHeritageDNA once you get your raw data.

FindMyPast (they use LivingDNA kits – see LivingDNA below): https://www.findmypast.com/ancestry-dna-testing/ – sale price $89, regular price $99. LivingDNA sale ends August 31, 2018 and I believe FindMyPast will most likely use the same end date. Don’t see kits (FindMyPastDNA or LivingDNA) available on Amazon as of August 31, 2018.
Geno 2.0 Next – On sale (August 22, 2018 with no word on when sale ends) at Helix, National Geographic, and Amazon for $69.95 https://www.helix.com/shop/national-geographic-geno-2-next-generation/ $69.95 + free Helix kit if you need one; it’s free temporarily – no word on how long the free kit offer will be available
$30 if you need a Helix DNA kit for an individual – regular price tends to run $149.95 or $199.95 which includes the Helix kit cost – No word on when this sale price ends. If you order directly from National Geographic (Nat Geo), it’s also $99.95, (regular price is $199.00 on Nat Geo website; if the person has previously tested with Helix for any other DNA test, don’t order from Nat Geo as you are paying for a kit that you don’t). Amazon sale price is $69.95 with free shipping (Amazon price current since August 25, 2018 and it’s at least the sixth price change between August 1st and August 22nd; tends to go back to $99.95 on a regular basis, but was a bit under $93 on August 14th) $99.95 and is cheaper due to free shipping that Amazon offers. Note: U. S. kits are processed by Helix (spit kit) and non-U.S. kits are processed by FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) – cheek swab.
Helix – https://www.helix.com/collections/all/ – (direct link to Helix list of DNA tests offered) promo code discount: 25% promo code is TDF25OFF ends August 31, 2018 – NOTE: it’s not cumulative with other promo codes that may already apply to some Helix DNA tests; Amazon list of Helix tests – doesn’t include all Helix items listed on the Helix site so you may need to search for specific tests or items if you are checking Amazon for something not in the above Amazon link; for DNA Passport, see above; Baby Glimpse: the old URL is no longer valid and the new URL only appears to offer one kit so you would need to order two tests and two kits for best results, one for each parent if both needed a kit :https://www.helix.com/products/humancode-babyglimpse – Helix DNA kit is on sale for $40.00, regular price is $80 if you need a Helix DNA kit for an individual. On Amazon (check price as some days, it’s cheaper on Amazon and other days it’s cheaper on Helix) with free shipping. From the description, it sounds like you can still compare if you order a test for both parents; see DNA Passport or possibly Geno 2.0 above for cheaper way to get the kits as two DNA Passport kits + test would run you $49.99 x2 which is slightly cheaper than two kits using the Baby Glimpse bundle link and you get DNA Passports results as a bonus. Going this route would cost you about the same, but you wouldn’t need to order the two Helix DNA kits for Baby Glimpse as you could use your DNA Passport Helix kits for the results. embodyDNA: https://www.helix.com/shop/lose-it-embodydna/ sale price $49.99 + $20.00 if you need Helix DNA kit; regular price is $109.99 + $80.00 for Helix DNA kit; on Amazon (check pricing as Amazon keeps raising and lowering prices on a regular basis) with free shipping. GoalGetter: https://www.helix.com/shop/insidetracker-goalgetter/ sale price $130.00 + $40.00 if you need Helix DNA kit; regular price $260.00 + $80.00 if you need Helix DNA kit – not seeing GoalGetter on Amazon. Rest of Helix DNA tests are regular price and Helix kits are regular price of $80.00 if you need a Helix DNA kit for an individual.
HomeDNA – https://homedna.com/ use promo code SUMMER100 which drops price to $99; ends September 3, 2018. Ancestry: GPS Origins Ancestry Test $199.00 (looks at over 80,000 autosomal markers); also available on Amazon (however, the promo code won’t work on Amazon). GPS Origins Ancestry Test – Upload Your Raw Data (can upload from most of the major DNA testing companies – AncestryDNA, 23andMe, FamilyTree DNA – FTDNA, Geno 2.0 but not 2.0 Next unless it was done by FTDNA) $39.00 (number of markers depends on which company you transfer results from).
LivingDNA – https://www.livingdna.com/ sale price $89 – updated August 9, 2018 with end date of August 31, 2018 limited time only; regular price is $99; don’t see LivingDNA or FindMyPastDNA available on Amazon as of August 30, 2018. LivingDNA offers free limited transfers, but you won’t get a few benefits if you go this route. For example, you won’t get haplogroups (mtDNA, Y-DNA) and originally you wouldn’t get ethnicity results when I did a free transfer back in December 2017, but looks like they will be offering ethnicity results for the free transfers after your transfer processes (estimated between August 8 – October 31, 2018 for the free transfers to process; they are rolling them out in small groups). You would have to order a kit from Living DNA to get those benefits. They are partnering with FindMyPast and FindMyPast will be offering LivingDNA kits at some point, similar to how MyHeritageDNA uses FTDNA kits with MyHeritage logo on the package. They are slowly rolling out matching starting August 8, 2018 and plan on finishing by sometime October 2018.
MyHeritageDNA – https://www.myheritage.com/dna – $59 Labor Day Sale with free shipping if you order 2+ kits in a single order; on sale on Amazon for $69
$75 with free shipping (included above under the Sale Section) ; if you order through Amazon, it’s free shipping (with or withou Amazon Prime, bit slower without Prime, but still pretty fast) and FTDNA‘s Amazon price is $73.99 (as of early afternoon August 26, 2018). MyHeritage accepts free transfers from FTDNA as well as from AncestryDNA and 23andMe (v4 and older chipsets; they are working on making v5 a free transfer option, but aren’t there last I heard).
Silverberry Genomix: https://silverberrygenomix.com/ 20% promo code: SCHOOL ends September 3, 2018; Amazon link for all Silverberry Genomix products available, usually with free shipping
. If you upload your 23andMe, AncestryDNA, or FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) raw data, you can get a Basic Wellness Report that includes 10 free reports and that’s available without a discount code. You can also get the Basic Wellness Report (BWR) if you order a kit from Silverberry Genomix. Keeping in the Sale Section because you can get a limited BWR free.
Vitagene: https://vitagene.com I don’t see an end date on the sale.
Current sales: https://vitagene.com/shop/products-include-dna-test-kits/
Health Reports for diet, fitness, and supplementation + Ancestry + free 15 minute nutritional phone consultation. Regular price $99; on sale for $79. Believe this is the same report available on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Vitagene-DNA-Test-Kit-Ancestry/dp/B01NCISWQT – price may or may not be cheaper on Amazon as they love to raise and lower the prices on a regular basis.
All in 1 Bundle for diet, fitness, skin report, and supplementation + Ancestry + free 15 minute nutritional phone consultation. Regular price $129, on sale for $99.
Vitality Bundle for diet, fitness, skin report, and supplementation + Ancestry + + 90 days of 4 personalized supplement + free 15 minute nutritional phone consultation. Regular price $245; on sale for $169.

End of Vitagene Tests
WeGene – https://www.wegene.com/en/ free upload if you tested with 23andMe (including v5 chip) or AncestryDNA; regular price if you need to order a kit from WeGene (it’s a Chinese company and you would need to figure out the exchange rate if you buy a kit from them and also probably need a way to read Chinese since the main WeGene is in Chinese). For now, they don’t accept FTDNA, MyHeritage, LivingDNA, etc. It includes basic to intermediate haplogroup(s) – mtDNA and Y-DNA (males only).
DNA companies not offering sales at this time (August 22, 2018):
23andMe – https://www.23andme.com/ Ancestry (ethnicity) only kit regular price $99 – Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/23andMe-Ancestry-Personal-Genetic-Service/dp/B01LZ5K87Z/; Ancestry + Health regular price $199. Amazon has Ancestry + Health – https://www.amazon.com/23andMe-DNA-Test-Ancestry-collection/dp/B01G7PYQTM/ test on sale for $199.00 (last update check August 30, 2018, but can vary every couple of days so check Amazon) so I listed it under sales above and kept it here as well since the Ancestry only test isn’t on sale. If you order 23andMe’s Ancestry+Health through Amazon (same link as the one a few lines above, you can get it a little cheaper as of August 30, 2018) which is why I included 23andMe in the Sale Section.
Ancestry DNA – https://www.ancestry.com/dna/ – as noted in the Test on Sale section above, I don’t know if the price showing on my Ancestry account is one available to everybody or only sent to a group of members. $99 – regular price; as of the date of this blog post, it’s on sale on Amazon (click on the link or see the Sale Section above) . Worth noting sometimes Ancestry sends individual e-mails that includes DNA sale prices, but those tend to be limited to the people who received the e-mails. Also, check EBay as you can often find Ancestry kits cheaper on it. Sale for $59 through August 20, 2018 – will remove the strikethrough text once the sale ends and delete it from the sales section.
DNAFit – https://www.dnafit.com/us/store/

DNATribes – http://www.dnatribes.com/ No sale price; regular price $119.00, and they do offer autosomal comparisons if you tested at AncestryDNA, FTDNA, or 23andMe – regular price for autosomal comparison is $49. Not available on Amazon.
FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) – https://www.familytreedna.com/ See sale prices above – not all tests are on sale which is why I am keeping this information here, including the regular prices below depending on which test(s) you order – also, sometimes the below prices may change (up or down) so always check for current pricing before ordering., many of the tests are on sale through August 31, 2018 below prices are regular prices You can order FTDNA through GroupOn and it’s currently $65 there, but the sale ends sometime in August, 2018. In my experience, GroupOn tends to renew the sales most of the time so I will check back tomorrow to see what price shows up. You can also check Amazon or EBay as another alternative.

Full Genomes (FG or FGC) – https://www.fullgenomes.com/ (the link was correct, but a typo crept into the description and was fixed) No sales listed with prices based on which test you order. Also, project discounts are available, but you would have to contact FGC for details and pricing. The prices here tend to stay the same, but occasionally they will offer sales or change prices so always check with FGC before ordering. Not available on Amazon.
Whole Genome Sequencing 30x $1295 CLIA available
Y Elite Ancestry Test for Men $645

GenePlaza – https://www.geneplaza.com/ – no sale – they offer two choices – purchase a kit from them or free upload if you tested with most major DNA companies with small bonus ($3 credit if you do the free upload; $6 credit 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. App prices range from $1.49 to $5.49. Some of the individual tests are interesting enough to check out. Not available on Amazon.
Helix – https://www.helix.com/ – Amazon link: Amazon list of Helix tests some of the individual tests are on sale (check above for the handful on sale, includes Geno 2.0 Next, DNA Passport, Baby Glimpse (Helix kits discounted with DNA test regular price); embodyDNA; and GoalGetter, but you would need to check each one as the sales come and go on a regular basis. For whatever reason, Helix doesn’t make it easy to view pricing for each test without opening each test individually which is a pain in the neck. This link, https://www.helix.com/store/all, gives you each test available, but you would need to check each test for current pricing. This link on my blog gives the Helix tests currently available on Helix: List of DNA Tests Offered Through Helix.
HomeDNA – https://homedna.com/ 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. Also, the kits available locally usually are only for the testing kit and you would need to pay additional lab processing fees to HomeDNA when you send in the kit. (Note: if you order a kit directly from HomeDNA, as opposed to doing a raw data upload from another company, it will be a cheek swab); some of the tests may be available on Amazon
The tests currently offered directly on HomeDNA are as follows with regular prices listed below :
GPS Origins Ancestry Test $199.00 (looks at over 80,000 autosomal markers); also available on Amazon.
GPS Origins Ancestry Test – Upload Your Raw Data (can upload from most of the major DNA testing companies – AncestryDNA, 23andMe, FamilyTree DNA, Geno 2.0 but not 2.0 Next unless it was done by FamilyTree) $39.00 (number of markers depends on which company you transfer results from)
GPS Origins Ancestry Test – African Edition $199.00
GPS Origins Ancestry Test – Asian Edition $199.00
HomeDNA Starter Ancestry Test $69.00 (13 CODIS markers)
DNA Origins Maternal Lineage (mtDNA) $69.00 (HVR1, 2, and 3 regions – it’s not a full mtDNA test based on what other companies offer)
DNA Origins Paternal Lineage (Y-DNA) $69.00 (appears to look at 16 Y-STRs) – Males only
HomeDNA Advanced Ancestry Test $124.00 (appears to be a combination of Ancestry Test, Maternal Test, and Paternal Test)
Health and Beauty:
HomeDNA Food and Pet Sensitivity $99.00 (Nuts, Dairy, Wheat, Pets)
HomeDNA Healthy Weight $119.00
HomeDNA Skin Care $99.00
HomeDNA Paternity $164.00 (has both at-home or legal testing options – it doesn’t say, but I would expect legal testing to include additional fees – includes a child kit, a possible father kit, and biological mother kit (mother’s participation is optional, but recommended) Not for New York residents due to New York requirements for legal paternity testing.
Mixed-Breed Dog Identification DNA Test and Life Plan $125.00 (learn about your mixed-breed dog’s lineage)
Cat DNA Health Screen and Life Plan $125.00 (screen your cat for over 40 genetic diseases and traits)
Dog DNA Health Screen and Life Plan $125.00 (screen your dog for over 100 genetic diseases and traits)
End of HomeDNA list
Promethease – https://www.promethease.com/ 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. Note: this isn’t a DNA test, but uses your raw data from other companies (23andMe, Ancestry, FTDNA, etc.) to generate reports.
TeloYears – https://www.teloyears.com/home/ prices: TeloYears Health $99 TeloYears Health + Ancestry $169 (regular price $199, but seems to be a standard discount as opposed to a sale price). They also do the TribeCode (see below) tests. Not available on Amazon.
TribeCode – Tribecode – $99 regular price for Advanced Ancestry; kit is ordered through TeloYears (see above) and appears to be the Ancestry/ethnicity portion only. Not available on Amazon. Back up as of mid-afternoon August 28, 2018; back down on August 30, 2018.
uBiome – https://ubiome.com/consumer/explorer/ regular prices ranging from $89 to $399, depending on which tests you want run; sometimes goes on sale for a lot less. This isn’t a regular genealogical DNA test like many of the others listed in this post. 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. Interestingly, some insurance companies will pay some of the cost. Click on this link: https://ubiome.com/clinical/smartgut/ and see if your insurance company will cover it. The Smart Gut kit is only one of the sites (gut, specifically, a stool sample). The beta ended so they are no longer writing off what’s not covered by insurance (ended mid-August 2018), but you can still check and see how much it would cost based on what your insurance covers. Shame they haven’t figured out a way to get insurance companies to cover the other four sites yet. I have done the Smart Gut kit a number of times over the last 3 years and was recently approved for 6 more kits as part of the beta testing, and I sent several of them back already; I get one every week or two until all 6 have been delivered.
Veritas – https://www.veritasgenetics.com/ here’s a link to their 30x read DNA kit: https://www.veritasgenetics.com/mygenome. 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: https://www.veritasgenetics.com/sites/default/files/media/documents/VG_ProductOnePager_myGenome_email.pdf – Not available on Amazon.
WeGene – https://www.wegene.com/en/ free upload if you tested with 23andMe (including v5 chip) or AncestryDNA; regular price if you need to order a kit from WeGene (it’s a Chinese company and you would need to figure out the exchange rate if you buy a kit from them). For now, they don’t accept FTDNA, etc. It includes basic to intermediate haplogroup(s) – mtDNA and Y-DNA (males only). Have WeGene in the Sale and non-Sale sections since you can order a kit for them at regular price if you don’t use AncestryDNA or 23andMe free upload option. Not available on Amazon.
YSEQ.net – https://www.yseq.net/ 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. It is a great way to cheaply verify Y-DNA comparisons between males who should share Y-DNA. For the full DNA test, they’re offering a 23andMe type autosomal that may be usable on sites that accept 23andMe transfers. Located in Germany. Cheek swab.
