Updated June 15, 2020 – removed Sticky as new post going up shortly.j

The biggest updates are Ancestry‘s Father’s Day Sale for the basic test and the Ancestry+Health test and 23andMe changed its sale to order 1 Ancestry+Health test, save $50.00; order 2 Ancestry+Health, save $150.00. It still shows the buy 2 or more kits in a single order and get 20% off the second and additional kits in the same order are 20% off, but when I tried it, the discount wasn’t applying.

The major DNA Sales going on now: 1) MyHeritageDNA Father’s Day Sale sale price $49.00; regular price $79.00 – ends in 11 days; 2) LivingDNA sale still 30% off for Spring Sale – no word on when it ends. 3) 23andMe if you order 1 Ancestry+Health test, save $50.00; order 2 Ancestry+Health, save $150.00. 4) MyHeritage if you order the https://myheritage.com/kit/ sale $59.00 (still available as of June 11, 2020, regular price $199.00). 5) FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) – sale ends June 21, 2020 Family Finder $59.00, regular price $79.00; Y-DNA on sale, including upgrades. 6) AncestryDNA Father’s Day Sale – ends June 21, 2020: sale price $59.00, regular price $99.00; Ancestry+Health – sale price $99.00, regular price $149.00.

TeloYears offers 2 COVID-19 tests for sale – they are only available for bulk orders right now. We currently offer COVID-19 rRT-PCR testing by shipping collection kits in bulk to qualifying organizations such as clinics/physician practices, city and state governments, hospitals, nursing homes, employers, and health plans.  A discount if you buy both together. Vitagene offers a COVID-19 test if you qualify. However, you will need to meet the requirements to qualify for the test which aren’t easy. Sequencing.com offers a free Coronavirus Health Assessment and a paid $34/use COVID-19 Severe Outcomes Genetic Analysis. FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) offers a CCR5 test for $39; if you have the mutations, you are a lot less likely to get COVID-19; it’s not a guarantee.

Over 1,600 words. If you are interested in a specific company, scroll down to it and see its current price.

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 to the last post: Genealogical DNA Testing Companies and Current DNA Sales June 9, 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.

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.
