The Black Friday through Cyber Monday sale ended just over two hours ago. Today, Ancestry.com announced its holiday sale for the remainder of the season.
The length of the sale depends on the item.
AncestryDNA tests are now $89 which is 10 percent off the regular price of $99. The test is on sale until 6:59 p.m. EST Sunday, Dec. 21.
There is a code for free shipping on DNA tests but out on the internet people have been reporting that the code did not work every time with the Black Friday through Cyber Monday sale. It seemed to not always work when purchasing a single test but would work when purchasing multiple tests. Despite this recent "problem", it is worth a shot at saving the $9.95 shipping cost by entering the coupon code to see if you can get free DNA shipping on AncestryDNA tests. The code is FREESHIPDNA
which was supposed to be valid until April 1, 2015. (The code is listed on RetailMeNot
but you do not have to go to that website to get the code. It is as you
see above, all capital letters with no spaces.)
Ancestry has also discounted Ancestry Gift Memberships
by 10 percent and Family Tree Maker software by 25 percent. See this Ancestry Gifts page
for details. Note: if you want the software on CD/DVD there is an added
shipping cost which is $5 for our area. Shipping costs vary by
location. These particular items are on sale until 11:59 p.m. EST Friday, Dec. 26.
Be careful not to get lost in the various Ancestry.com "store" and "gift" pages. Not all of the pages consistently show the sale prices. Some just show and charge the regular prices. So be sure you are on the holiday Give A Gift page so you get the sale price.
As you can see, Ancestry.com's holiday sale is not quite as good as its short after Thanksgiving sale. But sometimes a little savings is better than none.
See you soon at the Mt Clemens Public Library!
