DNA test kits have become an increasingly popular purchase for consumers curious about everything from family health history to ancestry and even pet genetics. While 23andMe and AncestryDNA may be the most recognizable names around, there’s an array of other options for all sorts of DNA and health testing preferences. 

TellmeGen offers one of the most comprehensive test kits available, and now ahead of Amazon Prime Day, you can get the TellmeGen health and ancestry DNA test kit for just $139 down from its original $199. What these test kits can’t tell you is how long this deal will last, so act now to secure these savings.

The TellmeGen kit is unlike any other DNA test kit on the market, unlocking genetic predisposition information for more than 175 health conditions. A simple saliva sample enables TellmeGen DNA analysis to reveal susceptibility for breast cancer, diabetes, and more. In addition, carrier information for over 75 inherited conditions including hemochromatosis and cystic fibrosis are analyzed, which may be especially useful information for expectant parents.  

Among the more interesting features of the TellmeGen test kit is the personality trait report, which lets users discover how their DNA affects things like intelligence, pain sensitivity, memory, and more. Also included are wellbeing-based results, including such esoteric indicators like how drinking coffee might affect one’s anxiety.

In addition to all of your health and personality information, the TellmeGen DNA test includes ancestry results, letting you discover the makeup of your ethnicity down to a tenth of a percentage point. A deeper dive into the DNA analysis can even reveal which ethnic groups your ancestors may have belonged to.

While some other DNA tests are just one-and-done deals, the TellmeGen kit includes free monthly updates as new information arises, in essence providing you with lifetime genetic analysis. Over 550,000 are contained in the TellmeGen’s Illumina Chip, and there’s no telling what the next wave of scientific advances could unlock.

Amazon Prime Day is best known for its midsummer savings on electronics, but there’s so much more on offer than just laptops and tablets. DNA tests are a fun, informative way to discover more about your past and future, and with the TellmeGen test kit now just $140, it’s a great time to give your genetic makeup a closer look.

Audio-Technica has three of its best turntables on sale for Prime Day
The Audio Technica AT-LP120XUSB turntable.

More than a decade ago, my first ever turntable was the Audio-Technica AT-LP120, a beast of a direct-drive machine that starts and stops on a dime, is stable as all hell, and couldn't be easier to use. I still have it, and while I've added several other types and grades of turntables over the years, it's still in regular, er, rotation in my setup.

As far as entry-to-mid-level turntables go, Audio-Technica is one of the best brands out there -- we feature several of them on our best turntables list. If you've been hemming and hawing over getting a new turntable to kick off your vinyl obsession, or maybe you're looking to upgrade your starter deck, now's your chance to get your hands on one of three of Audio Technica's most popular turntables for up to 29% off as part of Amazon Prime Day: the entry-level AT-LP60X, it's Bluetooth-enabled sibling the AT-LP60XBT, and the AT-LP120XUSB, a newer, USB-capable version of my trusty old tank that I mentioned above.

Why you should buy the SodaSteam E-Terra during Prime Day
Prime Day is a great time to buy appliances. Amazon is having fantastic price cuts on some of the most popular models, while competing retailers try to offer their own sales. Target is having Target Circle Week, for instance, which is cutting prices on lots of home appliances. But we're here to talk about the SodaStream E-Terra. SodaStream is the biggest brand name in the soda water biz, and this is one of their simplest carbonated water makers. The E-Terra comes with the basic SodaStream device, which has a thin profile that will fit on any counter, right next to a toaster and a Keurig.
