Save up to $100: Amazon has great deals on three 23andMe DNA kits. Starting at $79, these kits usually cost anywhere from $99 to $229 but this limited time deal will let you take up to 50% off the full price.


A 23andMe DNA testing kit makes a great holiday gift for family historians or even yourself. DNA testing kits have exploded in popularity over the years as people strive to learn more about their genetic makeup, health history, and family tree. Saliva-based DNA test kits have not only helped people understand their past, they’ve also helped distant or unknown relatives reconnect. It seems the brand has noticed that its kits are popular gifts: 23andMe DNA kits were also on sale around this time last year.

As of Nov. 11, 23andMe ancestry kits are on sale at Amazon for anywhere from 20% to 50% off. With three types of tests, here are the sale prices along with specs and respective discounts.

The 23andMe Ancestry + Traits service is on sale for $79 on Amazon. That’s 20% off its usual price of $99. This option offers useful information derived from 80+ genetic results. Test-takers can expect ancestry composition and family tree information.

The 23andMe Health + Ancestry Service test offers additional information than the more basic option. Along with ancestry composition and traits, this test is especially useful for people who want information on genetic predisposition to certain diseases and characteristics. Who wouldn’t want to know whether or not high blood pressure runs in the family so they can be more proactive?

Normally sold for $199, Amazon now offers this test for $99. Truly a bargain for the wealth of knowledge that test-takers can expect to receive.

The most comprehensive DNA kit of the bunch, the 23andMe + Premium Membership Bundle offers information gathered from 180+ genetic tests and includes a one-year premium membership. Normally sold at a price of $229, Amazon has this test on sale for $129. This is the only 23andMe test that also provides information on reactions to certain medications depending on genetic makeup and sends updates as research results come in.

According to reviewers, 23andMe results vary depending on the individual. Not everyone will be able to find relatives, but these results can change depending on the number of people who buy and use these tests.
