The brand has two different sets and yes, they are both on sale on Amazon! The Ancestry Service kit, which breaks down your global ancestry, is currently $79, compared to $99. The Health + Ancestry Service kit, which offers 75+ personalized health reports, in addition to your ancestry information, is $159, down from $199. The upgraded version also includes a genetic risk and carrier report.
Regardless of which kit you get, once you send off your DNA sample in the form of a tube of spit, you’ll be able to see your ancestry and/or health results online in 6-8 weeks.
But it’s important to remember that even though 23andMe has received FDA approval to include a person’s genetic risks in its reports, this information does not double as a diagnosis or mean you will (or won’t) develop a specific disease or condition.
The company has also experience some controversy over the privacy of the information they obtain from your genetic sample and how they can use it for both non-profit and for-profit purposes. That being said, the company has made it clear that all DNA samples are anonymized before using and that customers can choose to not allow their samples to be used. Customers are also able to pull their data from future genetic testing at anytime (just know that this won’t remove your DNA from past studies).
If you’re willing to do your research, 23andMe kits can be a great way to look into your past and since these prices won’t last long, now is the time to buy.
At the time of publication, these kits were still in stock, but with a deal this lucky, we expect them to go fast!
