Any time during the year is a good time to invest in a DNA testing service and learn more about yourself, your health, and your history. For those looking for a bargain or providing a special gift for a family member, friend, or even yourself, shopping the holiday sales for a DNA kit can save you money.
Mother’s Day and Father’s Day
Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are always a good time to consider a DNA kit. There are different specials offered by the major DNA testing services, including 23andMe and AncestryDNA. These kits may include additional bonus reports as part of the basic package, or they may offer discounts on the ancestry service as well as the other optional reports.
23andMe typically provides a discount on both the ancestry report as well as the health report for specific days. With Mother’s Day and Father’s Day a real family event, many adult children make a purchase for their Mom or Dad as well as for themselves, which is always interesting to compare.
Winter Holiday Savings
23andMe typically begins promoting their winter holiday sales in early November and run the promotions through until December 25th. This is usually the most dramatic sales event throughout the year, with the ancestry kit offered at up to fifty percent off the regular price.
To get the 50% off discount, buyers will need to purchase the ancestry and health kit package, but this is typically limited to before Thanksgiving. If you want two-for-one savings, upgrade to the VIP health and ancestry package, which starts in November and ends after Black Friday.
