Just a reminder that most of the Father’s Day DNA Sales end June 17, 2019 at the latest. Some of the DNA companies will do a Summer Sale although it’s hit or miss on which companies and when the sales will start and end. The next biggest sale will probably be the Black Friday / Cyber Monday Sale that occurs on Thanksgiving Week-end (fourth Thursday in November). There may be other sales in the interim.
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. Amazon loves to raise and lower prices on DNA tests on a somewhat regular basis, usually every few days for some of the major companies, bit less often for other companies.

FindMyPastDNA (they use LivingDNA kits – see LivingDNA below): Father’s Day Sale ends June 17, 2019 – https://www.findmypast.com/ancestry-dna-testing/ – sale price $65 each as of June 15, 2019 although it’s sale price of $79 on LivingDNA; LivingDNA kits on Amazon (price as of June 14, 2019), https://www.amazon.com/3-Living-DNA-Ancestry-Test/dp/B07HWVRPNZ/ – on Amazon, sale price $119.00 + $4.99 shipping. They accept free limited transfers from other DNA testing companies.
Full Genomes Corporation: https://www.fullgenomes.com/ $15 Individual SNPs.
Geno 2.0 Next – Update June 1, 2019 – National Geographic and Helix have stopped offering Geno 2.0 Next kits – see National Geographic Geno Project DNA Ending. Temporarily, Amazon still has some kits available – Amazon sale price is $59.99* with free shipping (Amazon price current as of June 15, 2019).
Helix – https://www.helix.com/collections/all/ some tests on sale, but many aren’t (direct link to Helix list of most DNA tests offered); 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. 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. However, Helix sometimes does limited sales so check any test you are considering to see if it’s on sale.
LivingDNA – https://www.livingdna.com/ sale price $79; regular price is $99 (price as of June 15, 2019); on FindMyPastDNA for $65 temporarily. LivingDNA or FindMyPastDNA on Amazon – https://www.amazon.com/3-Living-DNA-Ancestry-Test/dp/B07HWVRPNZ/ ( check prices as Amazon may have a lower price). LivingDNA offers free limited transfers, but you won’t get a few benefits if you go this route that you would get if you order the test directly from LivingDNA; they have indicated they will offer discounted upgrades for those who transfer and want the extra benefits, but no word on when or how much it will cost). For example, you won’t get haplogroups (mtDNA, Y-DNA – if male) and originally you wouldn’t get ethnicity results when I did a free transfer back in December 2017, but looks like they may be offering ethnicity results for the free transfers during the beta test (it’s not clear if you get to keep the ethnicity results after the beta test ends and it doesn’t appear those who upload after the beta test will get them without paying some kind of upgrade fee) 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 LivingDNA to get those benefits. They are partnering with FindMyPast and FindMyPast will be offering LivingDNA kits packaged with FindMyPastDNA (or some similar language) 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 in October 2018. One transferred results are showing a single match, but only one has finished processing as of June 14, 2019 and it only has one match. Two of the transfers has zero (0) matches!
MyHeritageDNA – https://www.myheritage.com/dna – Sale Ends June 10, 2019 – $59 sale price + free shipping if you order 2+ kits in one order; Amazon for $62.00* (still valid as of June 15, 2019) with free shipping and FTDNA‘s Amazon (see above) price may be cheaper so check both places. GroupOn: https://www.groupon.com/deals/n-myheritage-dna-kit sale price $64.00 as of June 15, 2019. MyHeritageDNA accepts free limited transfers from FTDNA as well as from AncestryDNA, LivingDNA, and 23andMe (including v5 chip now). They made some major changes to those who upload raw data transfers after November 30, 2018); it won’t affect you if you uploaded your raw data before December 16, 2018 as they are grandfathering in people who upload raw data before December 16, 2018 and they will retain full access.Free limited transfer of raw data from many other DNA companies although if you have a paid MyHeritage subscription, the full upgrade is supposed to be free.
