Disclosure: while I reference affiliate links in this blog post, none of the links below are for affiliate links although I do have links where you can sign up for affiliate programs at the bottom of the post.
If you go to https://www.fullgenomes.com/, scroll down a bit to Updates & Promotions, you will find three boxes:
- New Advanced Whole Genome Analysis (Now Only $250) – https://www.fullgenomes.com/purchases/123/
- Order M)yHeritageDNA test Only $79 (shows as $59 in the affiliate link that is on the FGC site); for the non-affiliate link, go to https://www.myheritage.com/dna free shipping if you order 2+ kits in one order and that applies to both the affiliate and non-affiliate links.
- Long Read Whole Genome – Best Y Chromosome Test Order Now: no price listed on the Updates and Promotions section, but $2,900.00 USD when you click on the link: https://www.fullgenomes.com/purchases/5/?
When I did my daily check for FGC sales today, I noticed they were now selling MyHeritageDNA kits, but it was through an affiliate link (which I chose not to include in this blog post, but you can easily find it on the FGC website). I included the non-affiliate link above. The affiliate link doesn’t raise the price of the kit, but does generate somewhere between 5 to 10% in affiliate revenue for FGC if MyHeritageDNA follows the standard practice that many DNA companies that have similar affiliate programs offer. In the past when I researched affiliate programs offered by the major DNA testing companies, several of them offered 5% commission if your affiliate link generated less than $1,000 in a month and 10% if your affiliate link generated more than $1,000 in monthly sales. I didn’t find where to sign up for a MyHeritageDNA affiliate program, but WikiTree (https://www.wikitree.com/) also has an affiliate link for MyHeritageDNA kits which can be found on their site if you do a search.
If anybody is interested in joining an affiliate program with a DNA company, here are links to several DNA companies affiliate programs that you can sign up for (each company sets its own policies for how much you earn from their program):
Here’s a link to 23andMe’s affiliate program: https://www.23andme.com/affiliates/.
Here’s a link to FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) affiliate program: https://affiliate.familytreedna.com/.
Here’s a link to AncestryDNA’s affiliate program: https://www.ancestry.com/cs/us/affiliate.
I couldn’t find the affiliate program for MyHeritageDNA, but several websites have MyHeritageDNA affiliate links on them and I tried several searches on their website and using my least favorite search browser.
Here’s a link to Amazon’s affiliate program: https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/
If you have an online company you like, they may offer affiliate opportunities. While I haven’t signed up with any affiliate programs yet, I will be reviewing and following the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) guidelines for affiliates when I decide to join an affiliate program.
