Wasn’t planning on adding a new sale post this soon, but saw FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) Sale was extended to tomorrow as I mentioned in a re-blog yesterday – Three more days FamilyTree DNA Sale Extended (Ends September 3, 2019) — The Legal Genealogist. AncestryDNA is still running a Labor Day Sale through September 2, 2019 (ends today). Here’s the link to Current September 2019 DNA Prices, but I will generally keep the Current DNA Sale Prices post Sticky from now on. The next major sale will be around Black Friday (November 29, 2019)/Cyber Monday (December 2, 2019). Amazon often has great deals for some of the companies around Black Friday/Cyber Monday. 23andMe is no longer on sale, but many people buy from them so I left it on the list below.
That’s not to say that one or more of the below companies won’t offer the occasional short-term or flash sale between now and then, but don’t expect the prices to get very low during those sales in most cases. Also, many of the companies will do a year-end sale that may or may not have better prices than the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals.
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. For EBay and Amazon purchases, always activate the test as soon as you get it to avoid problems.
