Two New DNA Sales – AncestryDNA and MyHeritageDNA – August 6, 2020

I added this information to the new Sticky post – Current DNA Sales August 6, 2020, but realize it sometimes gets missed even though I put it at the top of the post. The AncestryDNA sale ends August 17, 2020. The MyHeritageDNA sale ends in 13 days.

AncestryDNA: –  sale price $59; 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 August 6, 2020) – note this can vary from day to day as some days, the offer isn’t available. On Amazon – (Basic AncestryDNA test) – sale price $59.00, regular price $99.00; (Ancestry Health – (Not Available in NY, NJ, RI, or Guam)  – sale price $129, regular price $179.00, see link for price, depending on which kit you go with, appears to be slightly different from Ancestry+Traits as it’s a bit more expensive; Amazon AncestryDNA + Traits, (cheaper if you do an upgrade from a Basic AncestryDNA test) sale price $69.00, regular price $119.00 on Amazon. Ancestry Health Core: (Not Available in NY, NJ, RI, or Guam), regular price $179.00 – temporarily unavailable 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 before putting it on EBay or Amazon.
