Here are the current special offers and discounts likely to be of interest to Irish genealogists:

*last update 22 April 2018



Ancestry's DNA DAY Sale: at least 25% off

Since launching in 2012, Ancestry DNA's database has grown to hold almost 10million DNA customers, easily the world's largest. As such, it statistically offers the greatest chance of matching with the descendants of your extended family.

The company's DNA DAY sale offers at least 25% off the regular price of its DNA test kit, which varies according to the area of residence of the person taking the test. (There may well be additional offers via Ancestry.ca and Australia.com.au, and other countries but I haven't been able to find them due to Ancestry's bloody-minded geo-locator.)

The prices below do not include shipping, which is extra.

Ireland: Regular price €99. Sale price €71, a saving of €18. Offer ends at 23:59 GMT on Thursday 26 April.

UK: Regular price £79. Sale price £59, a saving of £20. Offer ends at 23:59 GMT on Thursday 26 April.

USA: Sale price US$59, the lowest price of the year. Offer ends Thursday 29 April.




Up to 50% off LivingDNA tests for DNA Day 2018

Living DNA has special offers worth up to 50% off the regular price of its DNA test.

Exactly how much you can save depends on where you live, with the biggest savings being reserved for USA residents.

The expiry date of the DNA DAY Sale is not clear but some local LivingDNA pages say the offer will end at midday (GMT) on Thursday 26 April, so it's probably best to assume that is the final day across all territories.

The savings are as follows:

€55.80 off – a 35% saving. Price reduced from €159 to €103.20.

£40.80 off – a 35% saving. Price reduced from £120 to £79.20.

US$79.01 off – Half Price. Price reduced from US$159 to US$79.99.

AUS$63.80 off – a 30% saving. Price reduced from AUS$199 to AUS$135.20.





Up to 30% savings in My Heritage's DNA DAY Sale

My Heritage's DNA DAY sale sees savings on the regular price of the company's autosomal test fall by up to 30%. How much depends where you are resident.

I haven't been able to establish the savings in all territories due to a very irritating geo-locator. The offers in three currencies are below. 

If you are resident in other areas, click the DNA DAY SALE image right. You should then be able to find your 'local' sale prices.

All the prices quoted exclude shipping costs and the special offers will expire on Wednesday 25 April.

Save 22%. Sale price €69 (regular price €89)

Save 21%. Sale price £59‎ (standard price £75‎)

Save 30%. Sale price US$69 (standard price $99)




DNA DAY 2018: Offers from Family Tree DNA

Family Tree DNA is celebrating DNA DAY 2018 with up to 40% off its top-selling DNA tests. All the offers will expire on Saturday 28 April.

The headline sale offer is on its Family Finder test, an autosomal test that can be taken by both men and women and explores your lineage and maps your ethnic and geographic backgroud. This is on offer for only US$49, a saving of US$30, which is possibly the lowest price I've seen for this product.

There are also offers on my other types of test, including an mtFull Sequence test, which examines all regions of mtDNA, identifying your maternal haplogroup and migration path. The standard price for this test is US$199; it is on offer for only US$149.

Another offer is available on the Y-37 test, which can be taken only by men. It explores your paternal lineage and follows the ancient migration path of your male ancestors. The standard price of this test is US$169; it is on offer for only US$139.
