Save 50% on Ancestry gift memberships and AncestryDNA kits for Cyber Week

Family sharing AncestryDNA Black Friday deals kit
Ancestry

For Black Friday and Cyber Monday, most people will be sifting through the massive selection of electronics, entertainment, smart home, and home goods deals, and who can blame them? Some amazing discounts are being offered earlier than ever before this year. Personally, I tend to go with the unique services and goods on sale, like AncestryDNA® and Ancestry® Gift Memberships. You can learn a lot about your past, specifically your ancestors and  DNA. Right now, for Black Friday and Cyber Week, Ancestry is offering 50% off many of its products.

AncestryDNA kits are 50% off, bringing the base kit down to just $49 — we’ll talk about what that includes further. Also on sale are AncestryDNA gift memberships, the perfect way to gift the experience to friends and family. You can grab those for 50% off too. Really, for the regular price of a kit, you could get two, one for yourself and one for a relative. What a way to start the holiday season, right?

Why you should shop AncestryDNA and Ancestry Gift Memberships this holiday

Let’s start with the AncestryDNA kits and what they can offer you. It’s no secret that analyzing DNA is key to unlocking a wide variety of insights. But with the Traits kit, you can also learn about personal traits from physical traits you can see or hidden traits, like fitness and nutrient levels. You might even find traits you might not have known about. With both kits, you can also match with DNA connections, like long-lost relatives or distant relations, maybe living near you. Or, you could learn where you and your family come from. Maybe you’re Munster Irish, for instance?

When it comes to Ancestry gift memberships, it is worth noting that depending on the membership you choose, you’ll be able to learn different information. The World Explorer membership will show you not just local U.S. records and information but also international records, like photos, military records, and even news articles.

Gift memberships allow you to give that knowledge and those same discovery experiences to the people you love. Friends, family, and anyone else you want to give a membership to can use Ancestry to dig deep into their own origins and heritage. Like Ancestry standard memberships, gift memberships are tiered with three options to choose from, including AncestryDNA U.S. Discovery, World Explorer, and All Access memberships.

The best part is that for Black Friday and Cyber Week, through November 27, you can save 50% on all Ancestry gift memberships and AncestryDNA kits. To give you an example, the base AncestryDNA is available for just $49 with this deal, normally $99. You can also gift the same DNA kit for $49, as well. All gift membership tiers are also 50% off, so it’s up to you which one you choose. What are you waiting for? Isn’t it time you learned your own origin story?

Managing a small business takes extensive organizational skills as you try to work with what you have available, which may be constrictive and limited, especially compared to some of your bigger, more notable competition.

Enter stage left, Google Workspace, a universal suite of productivity tools you probably already know about but may not be using yet. It allows you to organize, communicate, and collaborate smarter and more efficiently than ever through a collection of work-related applications.

The goal is to streamline how you work and deliver a holistic and scalable solution that's ready to grow with you and your business. Let's take a closer look at why you should consider Google Workspace, including how you can get premium access to the suite to try it for 14 days today for free.

Ahead of Amazon Gaming Week in May, Razer is offering some incredible deals on its Blade series of gaming laptops. Amazon's Gaming Week celebration, if you're not familiar with it, is filled with deals and promotions for all types of gamers, from the avid streamer and competitive PC gamer to console aficionados and beyond. Razer's deals, specifically, are some of the best for PC gamers looking to upgrade their gaming setups for the latest titles. Take , for instance, that drops the price by $700 to $2,300. It has a 15-inch QHD+ 240Hz display, an Intel Core i7 13800H processor, 32GB of DDR5 RAM, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070, and a 2TB solid-state drive. That's plenty of power packed inside to play the latest games on high or above with stable framerates, plenty of storage to download and install a few big titles, and a price that won't empty your bank account. I highly recommend browsing to see what deals Razer has available, you won't regret it.

 
What else is discounted for Razer's Gaming Week sale
Okay, so I know it's technically Amazon Gaming Week, but these Razer deals are firmly in the category of "best in class" for discounts on PC gaming laptops, so I'm giving them a call out. You can expect to save anywhere from $400 to $700 on these powerful laptops in the Razer Blade series, from the Blade 14 to the Blade 18. Also, they all feature the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs, offering a ton of power to play the latest titles like Helldivers 2, Baldur's Gate 3, Dragon's Dogma 2, and more.

Anker SOLIX X1 offers effective solar power storage for your home backup
Anker SOLIX X1 solar battery storage outside with family nearby

A major challenge of solar power as a primary energy source is that, as abundant as it is, it's not always available. Solar systems do not generate energy at night, obviously, but energy production is reduced during overcast, dark, or stormy days. Moreover, other factors can affect energy production, like the cleanliness or condition of the solar panels and the amount of sunlight they get during the day -- which can be influenced by the sun's location in the sky or where the panels are installed -- and much more. It simply means that to use solar energy systems effectively, you need some kind of storage device to preserve energy for use during the off-hours. While several products on the market do this, the X1 from Anker SOLIX is one of the most intriguing and powerful solar energy storage systems we’ve seen.
