*last update 14 April 2019


Easter Sale: MyHeritage DNA tests

My Heritage is holding an Easter Sale on both sides of the Atlantic on its home testing autosomal DNA kit. The savings are not huge (around the 10% mark) but always worthwhile, and possibly the best we'll see until summer or Thanksgiving.

You can also boost your saving by taking advantage of the free shipping offer.

For researchers in Ireland and UK, the sale reduces the price of the MyHeritage DNA kit from £75 to £69. If you choose to order two or more kits at the same time, you'll receive free shipping.

For USA researchers, the sale reduces the price of the MyHeritage DNA kit from $79 to $69. As in the UK offer, if you order two or more kits, you won't be charged for shipping.

Discounts will expire on Easter Monday, 22 April.

There may be similar discounts available in Canada, Australia/New Zealand and other territories. Unfortunately, I can't locate details. If you're not in Ireland, UK or USA, click the image above to reach your local MyHeritage territory to see if it is offering a sale.
