Ancestry US is currently offering special deals on its DNA testing kits – offer ends tomorrow, Sunday 21 October at 11.59pm eastern time. You can get the test for $69 plus shipping, or bundle a 6 month US discovery membership for $99 plus shipping. The latter is a fantastic deal since the normal price would work out to be $198. It’s only worth it if you are based in the US or primarily searching for US ancestry, so bear that in mind. This offer is valid for new Ancestry subscribers only.

Unfortunately, there is no current special pricing for the UK, Canadian, or Australian markets that I was able to find; that pricing currently remains at £79 plus shipping. If you can bear to wait, I suspect that there will likely be a Black Friday deal in November.

My Heritage has a halloween sale on its DNA test, and is currently being offered at £59 / £59 plus shipping, or with shipping free if you buy two or more test kits. This sale ends on 1 November.

No special pricing was found for 23andMe, FamilyTreeDNA or Living DNA at this time; again, it may be that they offer sale pricing for Black Friday.
