Update April 17, 2020 – removed Sticky as new post coming later this evening.
Minor update April 9, 2020: MyHeritageDNA Amazon price is now $53 instead of $79.
Over 1,400 words. If you are interested in a specific company, scroll down to it and see its current price. The DNA Day sales have started early as in April 1st. Many DNA companies have not joined the bandwagon yet, but I expect FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA), Ancestry DNA, 23andMe, and a few others to join sometime later in the month. Decided this was a good post for this week’s DNA Saturdays post.
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.
Update: MyHeritageDNA has started a sale for regular kits – $39, regular price $79 and Health kits $99, regular price $199. Run for the next 26 days. DNAFit has a new sale, up to 30% off going on with a chance to win a free DNA kit. Vitagene is running the 20% off sale. LivingDNA now has up to 30% off sale.
Some sales still going on, but most sales will start in the next few weeks. The next major sale will be around DNA Day (April 25th or thereabouts). Update to the last post Genealogical DNA Testing Companies and Current DNA Sales April 1, 2020. As of today, WeGene has not started selling $99.00 DNA kits. I check every few days since at some point I expect to see them offering this price.
Monthly DNA price list for April 2020 – Current April 2020 DNA Prices April 1, 2020. That will cover many of the lesser known DNA companies or DNA companies that don’t offer sales too often.

VIP Health + Ancestry regular price $499 (2 kits included, a point missed by those not reading the fine print) – not seeing it on Amazon.
AncestryDNA: https://www.ancestry.com/dna/ – regular price $99.00 for first kit, but sometimes additional kits in the same order are only $89 (basic AncestryDNA test – still valid as of April 4, 2020) – note this can vary from day to day as some days, the offer isn’t offered. $99 regular price on Amazon – https://www.amazon.com/AncestryDNA-Genetic-Ethnicity-Test/dp/B00TRLVKW0/ (Basic AncestryDNA test) , regular price $99; (Ancestry Health – (Not Available in NY, NJ, RI, or Guam) – https://www.ancestry.com/health see link for price, depending on which kit you go with, appears to be slightly different from Ancestry+Traits as it’s $20 more; Amazon AncestryDNA + Traits, https://www.amazon.com/AncestryDNA-Genetic-Testing-Ethnicity-Traits/dp/B07J1FZQBC (cheaper if you do an upgrade from a Basic AncestryDNA test) – regular price $119.00 on Amazon.

Check other vendors, but make sure you register the kit as soon as you get it if you go this route, on Amazon as sometimes they are cheaper than the listed Amazon price in the link. The reason to activate immediately is in case someone used a stolen credit card to buy the kit.
