If you’ve been waiting for a fantastic price to jump before buying an AncestryDNA kit – here’s your deal, folks. For a limited time only, you can score an AncestryDNA kit for just $59. That’s a whopping $40 off the regular retail price and the lowest price it’s been all year.
I’ve purchased kits both for myself and for gifting so I can give you a little bit of information from my personal experience. First, you should know the kit is very easy to use and fun to do. Here’s what to expect:
- Pay for your kit(s) and they’ll arrive in a complete boxed kit with everything you’ll need to do.
- Activate your kit online, using the unique code found on the box.
- Collect a small saliva sample using the enclosed tube. It’s very easy to collect.
- Mail it back in the prepaid envelope.
- Allow 6-8 weeks for your results.
- Shipping adds $9.95 for the first kit, $4.95 thereafter.
Once you’ve paid for your kit + shipping, there are no additional fees to mail back your test or get it processed.
Your kid will arrive in a box, just like the one pictured above. This makes it really easy for gifting! The hardest part about the entire process is just waiting for your results! But Ancestry does a great job of providing updates about where your test is in the process so you’re never left in the dark. While you should expect it to take around 6 weeks, I believe my results came in a bit sooner than that.
Getting my results was a lot of fun, and there were some surprises! You can also learn more about specific ethnic groups and regions your ancestors came from and read a bit more about their lives. For those interested, you can also find people with similar DNA matches. I actually gifted this test to a friend who was adopted and she was very excited to find relatives she didn’t know she had!
This would be a truly amazing gift for a relative or friend that might be otherwise hard to buy for. I absolutely recommend the AncestryDNA kit! I do not anticipate we’ll find a better deal than this for the remainder of 2017. The special $59 pricing is only good through November 27th 8:59 pm PST, so don’t wait! As an add-on gift or gift for someone who has already done the kit, you might consider buying a subscription to Ancestry – it’s on sale for 50% off right now, too.
