Geno 2.0 Next DNA On Sale on GroupOn for $49.99

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 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, Nat GeoNational Geographic, and Amazon 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.
