20% discount on Ancestry.com membership and dna gifts
Ancestry.com is offering a 20% saving on new membership subscriptions and DNA tests purchased as gifts. (Yes, you can purchase them for yourself as a gift... go on, you know you're worth it!)
Subscriptions: The discount is available only on 6-month and 12-month
gift memberships (non-recurring). It is for new subscribers only and
not for renewal of currect subscriptions.
You select the date you want
the subscription to start and provide only an email address of the
recipient. Ancestry then contacts the recipient by email on the start
DNA test kits: The discount reduces the price of a kit to
US$79. Shipping costs are extra. You provide the name and address of
your recipient (must be in USA) and the testing kit is sent to them,
with full instructions of how to take the saliva test and where to send
the kit once they've taken the necessary action. Six to eight weeks
after the laboratory receives the dna sample, your recipient will
receive his or her ethnicity estimate and details of the matches made in
the huge Ancestry DNA database.
The discount will expire on Thursday 23 November at 11:59pm.
