Okay, here are the various Father's Day DNA Sales that we've learned about:
Ancestry is offering its AncestryDNA (autosomal) test on sale for $89 plus shipping and the offer is good until June 15, 2014, 11:59 p.m. ET. The test is regularly $99 so the savings is about 10 percent. Remember, autosomal tests are for males AND females -- it tests what you inherit from both biological parents.
In addition, RetailMeNot has a free DNA shipping coupon code listed for Ancestry. The code is FREESHIPDNA
and the code is good until April 1, 2015. (Note: you do not have to go
to the retailmenot website to get the code. It is as you see above, all
caps with no spaces.) The success rate is about 90 percent and the
most recent comments are that the code works with the Father's Day DNA Sale
So if you are going to
order, don't forget the coupon code for more savings.
For Father's Day, Ancestry is also offering various discounts on its Family Tree Maker program and a gift membership.
As far as the other two major DNA/genealogy companies, FamilyTree DNA and 23andME, we have seen no announcements regarding any sales. If we learn of any, we'll let you know.
See you soon at the Mount Clemens Public Library!
