There are some nice Black Friday deals going on today that will save you a significant amount of money on single tests or bundles. Check out our favorite below, then more more deals worth checking out under that.
AncestryDNA Genetic Test Kit — $59, was $99
The single person AncestryDNA Genetic Test Kit is our pick for the best Black Friday deal already available. The kit normally costs $99, but right now it’s down to just $59. That’s a nice discount of $30 on one of the best DNA tests available. We’re not sure how long this deal will last, so you should grab it soon.
Testing your DNA with Ancestry gives you two major pieces of information: your genetic makeup and your family tree. On the genetic makeup side, you get to learn what percentage of your DNA comes from various ethnic groups. The test is detailed enough to tell your about 2,600 different regions you may have a family history in. Ancestry splits this up into a pie chart report that is easy to explore and understand.
The other benefit is your family tree. If you have relatives who have used AncestryDNA, you can see where they might fit on your family tree. You can request to connect with them, and if they accept you’ll get access to some of their family tree too. It’s a fun way to connect with your family. It may even reveal a new relative you didn’t know you had.
All of this is accomplished with a simple cheek swab that you send back to Ancestry in the mail. It’s simple, fast, and cheap now thanks to this Black Friday deal.
