I am including this link as it has the most current sale prices as of August 31, 2019 – will modify it or create a new post as necessary – https://upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/2019/08/31/current-dna-sales-august-31-2019/. A new Current September 2019 DNA Prices will go live September 1, 2019.
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.
As of August 1, 2019 (original post was on August 1, 2019, and will be modified as needed, usually daily or every other day), the following companies are offering DNA sales. I am also including the general pricing for a number of other DNA companies that aren’t offering sales right now. I will update this post as new sales are added or current sales end.
Tests on Sale (usually checked daily or every other day, and sometimes several times a day as Amazon has a habit of raising or lowering prices later in the day):
23andMe Regular price (keeping it up since Amazon loves to change the price on their 23andMe kits on a somewhat regular basis – https://www.23andme.com/ Ancestry (ethnicity) only kit regular price $99** https://www.amazon.com/23andMe-Ancestry-Personal-Genetic-Service/dp/B01LZ5K87Z/ regular price $99.00; Ancestry + Health regular price $199.00**. Amazon has Ancestry + Health – https://www.amazon.com (last update August 1, 2019), but can vary every couple of days so check Amazon).
AncestryDNA : https://www.ancestry.com/dna/ – regular price $99.00 – been seeing $89 and $79 sale prices when I check on some days, but those usually only last one (1) day; Amazon https://www.amazon.com/s?field-keywords=ancestry+dna (regular price $99.00 – 119.00* – last update August 1, 2019); if you want AncestryDNA + Traits, https://www.amazon.com/AncestryDNA-Genetic-Testing-Ethnicity-Traits/dp/B07J1FZQBC regular price $119.00. Check other vendors on Amazon as sometimes they are cheaper than the listed Amazon price in the link. If you order two (2) or more kits in one order from Ancestry, additional kits may be $89, first kit is regular price of $99.
Don’t know if this is a targeted sale on the AncestryDNA site or available to everyone, but seeing on their website if I go to add a DNA test; I also see it if I am not logged into my account
SAVE NOW. Add more kits to your order for only $89/ea
Also, check EBay as you can often find AncestryDNA kits cheaper on it. In general, you can usually find Buy It Now AncestryDNA kits around $45 – 55 on EBay (make sure it’s an AncestryDNA kit as EBay searches often pull up other companies’ kits when using Ancestry DNA as your search parameter); for the auctions, it can vary widely depending on how an auction goes.
CVS Pharmacy Black Friday Sale Sneak Peek: I found CVS Pharmacy is offering 23andMe kit (lab fee extra, $70 or $170, depending on if you want health reports or not); regular price $29.99 as of last update August 1, 2019 (regular price $29.99); check for discount code or reward card discount/bonus as they sometimes offer discount codes.

Added it to Sales Section because 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 kits – see National Geographic Geno Project DNA Ending. Temporarily, Amazon still has some kits available – Amazon sale price is $42.50* (only 5 left in stock) with free shipping (Amazon price current as of August 1, 2019).
Helix – https://www.helix.com/collections/all/ some tests on sale and not all on listed in the link below, but many aren’t (direct link to Helix list of 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.
HomeDNA / GPS Origins Ancestry Test – https://homedna.com/product/gps-origins regular price $199.95 (looks at over 80,000 autosomal DNA markers). Sometimes available on GroupOn. They may offer a 10% discount if you put it in your shopping cart and try to leave before completing the order. It semi-regularly goes on sale for much cheaper.
LivingDNA – https://www.livingdna.com/ regular price is $99 (price as of August 1, 2019); on FindMyPastDNA for $89 temporarily. LivingDNA or FindMyPastDNA on Amazon – https://www.amazon.com/3-Living-DNA-Ancestry-Test/dp/B07HWVRPNZ/ – unavailable as of August 1, 2019; usually comes back on Amazon ( 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 July 4, 2019 and it only has one match. Two of the transfers have zero (0) matches!
MyHeritageDNA – https://www.myheritage.com/dna – Sale Ends August 12, 2019, – $59 sale price; Amazon for $69.00* (still valid as of August 1, 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 $55.00 as of August 1, 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.

WeGene – https://www.wegene.com/en/ free upload if you tested with 23andMe (including v5 chip) or AncestryDNA; regular price if you need to order a kit from WeGene (it’s a Chinese company and you would need to figure out the exchange rate if you buy a kit from them and also probably need a way to read Chinese since the main WeGene is in Chinese). For now, they don’t accept FTDNA, MyHeritage, LivingDNA, etc. It includes basic to intermediate haplogroup(s) – mtDNA and Y-DNA (males only).
DNA companies not offering sales at this time (note – some are included above as they may have temporary sales going on):

AncestryDNA (see Sale Section above) – https://www.ancestry.com/dna/ – as noted in the Test on Sale section above, I don’t know if the price showing on my Ancestry account is one available to everybody or only sent to a group of members. $99 – regular price if you only order 1 test; as of the date of this blog post, it’s not on sale on Amazon (price can vary almost daily, click on the link or see the Sale Section above). Worth noting sometimes Ancestry sends individual e-mails to small groups of its users that includes DNA sale prices, but those tend to be limited to the people who received the e-mails. Also, check EBay as you can often find AncestryDNA kits cheaper on it, usually in the $45 – 55 range and shipping may or may not be free.

GenePlaza – https://www.geneplaza.com/ – no sale – they offer two choices – purchase a kit (regular price $145, but sometimes on sale for $85 (update September, 2018; to order a test, they refer you to GenCove, but the link to GenCove tells you they no longer sell the test) ; they were offering $6 credit (may no longer apply as of early September 2018) that applies to many, but not all, apps offered by GenePlaza) from them or free upload if you tested with most major DNA companies (23andMe, AncestryDNA, and GenCove – check with GenePlaza if you tested elsewhere) with small bonus (NOTE: credit may no longer be available: $3 credit if you do the free upload; $6 credit if you order a kit from them; (NOTE: credit may not apply to all apps offered) to spend on different apps they offer. Don’t see a price for how much the kit would cost if you needed to order one. App prices range from $1.49 to $5.49. Some of the individual tests are interesting enough to check out. Not available on Amazon.
Helix – https://www.helix.com/ – Amazon link: Amazon list of Helix tests some of the individual tests are on sale (check above for the handful on sale, but you would need to check each one as the sales come and go on a regular basis. For whatever reason, Helix doesn’t make it easy to view pricing for each test without opening each test individually which is a pain in the neck. This link, https://www.helix.com/store/all, gives you each test available, but you would need to check each test for current pricing. This link on my blog gives the Helix tests currently available on Helix: List of DNA Tests Offered Through Helix. They can adding and removing tests on a somewhat regular basis.
HomeDNA – https://homedna.com/ Many of the below test kits are available at CVS Pharmacy, Rite Aid Pharmacy, Walgreens, and Wal-Mart which would save you any applicable shipping costs, but would be subject to local sales tax. Also, the kits available locally usually are only for the testing kit and you would need to pay additional lab processing fees to HomeDNA when you send in the kit. (Note: if you order a kit directly from HomeDNA, as opposed to doing a raw data upload from another company, it will be a cheek swab); some of the tests may be available on Amazon and on GroupOn.
The tests currently offered directly on HomeDNA are as follows with regular prices listed below :
GPS Origins Ancestry Test $199.95 (looks at over 80,000 autosomal markers); also available on Amazon and Amazon price may be much cheaper. Sometimes available on GroupOn.

End of HomeDNA list
Promethease – https://www.promethease.com/ Regular price uploads start at $12 with some uploads running more if the raw data file size is larger than average (Genes for Good, for example). They have offered free uploads several times in the past and will probably do it again in the near future. Note: this isn’t a DNA test, but uses your raw data from other companies (23andMe, Ancestry, FTDNA, etc.) to generate reports.
Rite Aid: https://www.riteaid.com/shop/23andme-genetic-personal-service KIT ONLY $29.99 (lab fees are $70 or $170 depending on if you want health reports.). See Sale Section above for possible discounts.
TeloYears – https://www.teloyears.com/home/ prices: TeloYears Health $99 TeloYears Health + Ancestry $169 (regular price $199, but seems to be a standard discount as opposed to a sale price). They also do the TribeCode (see below) tests. Not available on Amazon. Temporarily in the Sales Section since it is offering a limited time sale right now.
TribeCode – Tribecode – $99 regular price for Advanced Ancestry; kit is ordered through TeloYears (see above) and appears to be the Ancestry/ethnicity portion only. Not available on Amazon. Once you order the kit from TeloYears and register it, you qualify to earn TribeCoins which can be used for a variety of purposes. You can also earn TribeCoins, by logging into TribeCode and going to the Community section. Logging in daily to TribeCode generally generates 1 TribeCoin/day.
uBiome – https://ubiome.com/consumer/explorer/ regular prices ranging from $89 to $399 with new option for ExplorerGutPlus*** https://shop.ubiome.com/pages/explorer-plus (4 SmartGut tests delivered during the year for $399 sale price, regular price $799), depending on which tests you want run; sometimes goes on sale for a lot less. If you go with one of the subscription options, you get 20 – 25% discount; doesn’t apply to ExplorerGutPlus, but does apply to the other options in the first uBiome link above. This isn’t a regular genealogical DNA test like many of the others listed in this post. It checks between 1 and 5 sites for bacterial DNA (mouth, skin, nose, genital, gut). I have taken this test in the past when it was on sale as I was curious as to what it would show. Interestingly, some insurance companies will pay some of the cost. Click on this link: https://ubiome.com/clinical/smartgut/ and see if your insurance company will cover it. The Smart Gut kit is only one of the sites (gut, specifically, a stool sample). The beta ended so they are no longer writing off what’s not covered by insurance (ended mid-August 2018), but you can still check and see how much it would cost based on what your insurance covers. Shame they haven’t figured out a way to get insurance companies to cover the other four sites yet. I have done the Smart Gut kit a number of times over the last 3 years.

WeGene – https://www.wegene.com/en/ free upload if you tested with 23andMe (including v5 chip) or AncestryDNA; regular price if you need to order a kit from WeGene (it’s a Chinese company and you would need to figure out the exchange rate if you buy a kit from them). For now, they don’t accept FTDNA, etc. It includes basic to intermediate haplogroup(s) – mtDNA and Y-DNA (males only). Have WeGene in the Sale and non-Sale sections since you can order a kit for them at regular price if you don’t use AncestryDNA or 23andMe free upload option. Not available on Amazon. It’s also in the Sales Section since you can upload raw data from 23andMe (including v5 chip) and AncestryDNA free. Exchange rate was around $60 – 70 when I checked at different times.
YSEQ.net – https://www.yseq.net/ regular prices as YSEQ rarely does sales although they occasionally will do a sale. Will continue checking in case they do a sale for DNA Day. Prices range, depending on if you want an individual Y-DNA SNP or various STR ranges, mtDNA (several options) to a 15x read, 30xread, or 50xread full DNA test. 15x read: $740; 30x read: (+ $600 above 15x read price) ; 50x read: (+$1,430 above 15x read price) ; Other Extras (price is in addition to whatever read you order) add $90 if you want USB drive sent to you (otherwise, you can download your results through a link for no additional cost); Sanger extra Y-DNA results (up to 10 Y-DNA SNPs): $100; you receive 4 cheek swabs and you need to use all four and mail them back to YSEQ. Individual SNPs tend to run $18. YSEQ also offers Y-STR testing, mtDNA, and Haplogroup panels. It’s a good alternative to FTDNA in some ways, but doesn’t offer matching. It is a great way to cheaply verify Y-DNA comparisons between males who should share Y-DNA. For the full DNA test, they’re offering a 23andMe type autosomal raw data option that may be usable on sites that accept 23andMe transfers. Located in Germany. Cheek swab
