Updated November 27, 2020 – removed Sticky as new post is up
Updated November 25, 2020 with FamilyTree DNA upgrade prices.
FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) Black Friday Sale started today, ends December 1, 2020. AncestryDNA removed the $60 test if you do a 3-month World Subscription recently, but they keep removing it and bringing it back on a regular basis so check if you want a 3-month World Subscription for $1 with AncestryDNA test. AncestryDNA Health on Amazon – sale price $99, a drop from the $119 sale price that had been offering, regular price $199. Dante Labs offering sale prices $149 for 30x and $239 for Whole Genomez, regular sale prices are $599 and $849 – see the links under Dante Labs below. These are the 8-week options
I believe the next major sale will be Black Friday/Cyber Monday for many of the companies in this list. There are generally year end sales although which is better depends as some years the year-end sale is better than the Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sale.
The major DNA Sales going on now: 1) 23andMe kits on sale through November 26, 2020 – see 23andMe below for the sale prices, 2) LivingDNA sale 40% off for Black Friday Sale with free shipping for 3+ kits in a single order – no word on when it ends. 3) MyHeritage if you order the MyHeritage Basic kit offer https://myheritage.com/kit/ sale $59.00 (still available as of November 25, 2020, regular price $199.00 for the package); 4) AncestryDNA sale – see below for prices or AncestryDNA Sale Update – November 1, 2020. 5) MyHeritageDNA Black Friday sale ends Friday – sale price $39 for basic kit; $99 sale price for Health kit; free shipping for 2+ tests ordered in a single order. 6) FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) – see Black Friday Sale prices below under FamilyTree DNA; ends December 1, 2020; free shipping on orders of $99 or more, use code FREESHIP.
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. Helix offers a COVID-19 test. 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 1,800 words. If you are interested in a specific company, scroll down to it and see 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: Current DNA Sales November 24, 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 company list for November 2020 – Current November 2020 DNA Companies November 1, 2020. That will cover many of the lesser known DNA companies or DNA companies that don’t offer sales too often.
