Updated December 19, 2020 – removed Sticky as new post going live soon.
23andMe says only a few hours left to receive a test by December 25th if using standard shipping which is why I added this post. MyHeritageDNA Christmas Day Sale ends in 4 days; same price of $49 as the last two times they renewed the offer. AncestryDNA has the $1 offer for 3 month World subscription if you order the basic test. It appears and disappears on a regular basis. Double checked all prices and made adjustments if needed.
The major DNA Sales going on now: 1) 23andMe kits – https://www.23andme.com/ on sale through December 26, 2020 – see 23andMe below for the sale prices as the basic kit is still $79.00, but they increased the price for the Health and VIP Kits; 2) LivingDNA sale 30% off with free shipping for 3+ kits in a single order – https://livingdna.com/ basic kit sale price $69, other kits available 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 December 16, 2020, regular price $199.00 for the package); 4) AncestryDNA sale – see below for prices or https://www.ancestry.com/dna/; basic and Health kits sale end December 31, 2020. 5) MyHeritageDNA extended sale for another 4 days – sale price $49 for basic kit; no longer seeing the price for Health kit on my account; free shipping for 2+ tests ordered in a single order. 6) FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) https://www.familytreedna.com/ – Sale prices – see below under FamilyTree DNA; sale ends December 27, 2020.
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 1,600 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 December 14, 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.

Helix – https://www.helix.com/collections/all/ some tests maybe on sale, but many aren’t (direct link to Helix list of most DNA tests offered, but it’s not the complete list as some are only listed in other parts of the Helix site).
