As part of Amazon’s Prime Day sale, you can purchase an AncestryDNA genetic ethnicity test for $49. The price on Ancestry’s website is $99. Of course, since you’re by definition an Amazon Prime member if you’re taking advantage of the special, shipping is free.
Personally, I chose AncestryDNA’s autosomal test when I was looking to take a DNA test years ago. It has not opened any magical doors yet in my genealogy research, but I remain hopeful! I have exported my raw DNA data and uploaded it to Family Tree DNA and My Heritage, so I’ve received several ethnicity estimates. My understanding is that while the other services accept raw DNA, Ancestry does not. So if you want the benefit of testing with the largest service (where you’ll reach the most potential cousins), you have to an AncestryDNA test.
Today may be the day to do that! The Prime Day sale ends tonight (July 16) at midnight Pacific time.
