Update: November 15, 2018: If you activate Ebates on GroupOn, this test should qualify for 6% cash back on Ebates.
When I did my daily check on GroupOn https://www.groupon.com/deals/n-helix-ancestry-kit for National Geographic (Nat Geo) Geno 2.0 Next test, it was on sale for $49.99; usual price on GroupOn for this test is $65.00. This is the same test you can find on Helix – https://www.helix.com/shop/national-geographic-geno-2-next-generation/, Nat Geo – National Geographic, and Amazon – https://www.amazon.com/National-Geographic-DNA-Test-Kit/dp/B07BSKZFDD/ with prices on those sites at $69.00 – $99.99 right now. There is no indication on GroupOn on when the sale ends. It wasn’t there yesterday (November 14, 2018) as it was still $65.00. This is a great price for the test. It’s not as useful for genealogy purposes as 23andMe, AncestryDNA, FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA), LivingDNA/FindMyPastDNA, or MyHeritageDNA, but I believe at some point, either Helix or a third party vendor will figure out a way to make it useful for genealogy purposes. It does a fairly deep Y-DNA (males only) and a basic to medium level mtDNA. It doesn’t provide matching yet. Added to Current November 2018 DNA Sales.
FYI, Geno 2.0 Next rarely gets priced this low. I have only seen one other time when it hit close to $49.99 as it tends to go for around $69.99 on Nat Geo and Helix on sale and $99.99 on Amazon and about the same on Nat Geo and Helix when not on sale. The test is done by Helix so you will need a Helix and a Nat Geo account. If you already have a Helix DNA kit, you don’t need another one, but this is almost $20.00 cheaper than what you can order it from Helix or Nat Geo and almost $50.00 cheaper than Amazon.
