After reading your reviews on the best DNA test providers I’ve decided to go with AncestryDNA. However, as is often the case with online merchants, upon checkout I’m greeted with a “coupon code” option. Why do they include this? All it does is make me search for a discount. So here I am, asking (and hoping) that you guys have some sort of AncestryDNA promotion you’re willing to share with me. Thanks!
AncestryDNA is a service that allows you to look back in time through your genome to find out who you are, where your ancestors came from, your family tree, etc. We wrote a large review of the top providers you may want to check out. Because the tests are comprehensive and not inexpensive, we are more than happy to share current coupons and promotions. Click here to automatically have the latest discount applied (typically you’ll get $20-30 off, but sometimes the promotion is even better!). Our readers are welcome to share their own Ancestry promos in the comments below.
Ancestry.com, the company that owns Ancestry DNA, was acquired in 2012 for $1.6 billion by Permira. That should give you an idea of the value of human genomes! They received an additional $1 billion investment from Silverlake and GIC in 2016. Ancestry.com offers extensive databases, resources and navigation tools, and their historical records exceed 16 billion entries, some of the largest in the industry. Find out more about them in our Ancestry.com Review.
AncestryDNA is their flagship DNA product that can pull over 700,000 genetic markers from your saliva (using a cheek swab). Their database consists of over 3 million DNA samples, which give access to millions of family trees. They are currently the largest online DNA community and offer a New Genetics Communities feature that helps you find where your ancestors recently lived in North America and where they migrated from.
