The biggest change from earlier DNA Sales posts this month has been FindMyPastDNA lowering its sale price from $65 to $59 and some other changes to a handful of other sales. So far, 23andMe, AncestryDNA, FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA), and Geno 2.0 Next have not yet jumped on the DNA Day Sale bandwagon.
I updated Current April 2019 DNA Sales with the prices below. I am still expecting some sales from AncestryDNA and FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) to show up in the next week or so.
FindMyPastDNA (they use LivingDNA kits – see LivingDNA below): https://www.findmypast.com/ancestry-dna-testing/ – sale price $59 each as of April 16, 2019 although it’s on sale for $59 on LivingDNA; LivingDNA kits on Amazon (available on Amazon as of April 16, 2019), https://www.amazon.com/3-Living-DNA-Ancestry-Test/dp/B07HWVRPNZ/ – available again on Amazon, sale price $90.00, regular price $99.00 + $4.99 shipping. Added it to Sales Section because they accept free limited transfers from other DNA testing companies.
Geno 2.0 Next – On sale (since August 22, 2018, sale price has changed numerous times since August 2018, with no word on when sale ends) at Helix, National Geographic, GroupOn, and Amazon (price varies a bit between the various links below) https://www.helix.com/shop/national-geographic-geno-2-next-generation/ $59.99 **+ another $40.00 if you need a Helix DNA kit as of April 16, 2019 if you need a Helix kit for an individual; regular price tends to run $149.95 or $199.95 which includes the Helix DNA kit cost – No word on when this sale price ends. If you order directly from National Geographic (Nat Geo) – regular price $99.95* (regular price varies between $149.95 to $199.00 or sometimes $199.95 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 need). Amazon sale price is $28.49* with free shipping (Amazon price current as of April 16, 2019; tends to go back to around $99.95 on a regular basis when a sale ends)
and is cheaper if you need a Helix kit for a person 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. Non-U.S. kits are showing an unavailable as of late September 2018 – no word on when they will become available again.
Not as useful since National Geographic (Nat Geo) now uses Helix to process their kits and the limited amount of DNA results shown make it difficult to do comparisons. Maybe one day Helix will provide more DNA data for Geno 2.0 Next or at least provide the raw data free on the Helix site.
