This Canada Day, you can figure out a little more about where you came from. Right up until July 1, Ancestry is running a major sale on their DNA kits – so you can pick one up for the lowest price we've seen in months. All weekend long, they're down to just $89! So what will you uncover this summer?
I still haven't actually tried one of these at-home DNA testing kits yet, but sales like this one always tempt me. And since these specific tests usually sell for $129, I don't know if I can pass on them this time.
If you're not super familiar with how these works, here's a quick briefer. You place an order for your kit and wait until it arrives in mail. Once you open everything up, you'll find the basic tools and instructions to activate your kit online and collect a saliva sample. Then, mail the sample to their lab and wait for your results.
They should be ready within about six to eight weeks, and they can tell you things like your geographic origins across 500 different regions (including how your ancestors migrated across the world) and whether you may be related to anyone else who has taken the Ancestry DNA test.
This sale runs until July 1 at 11:59 PM ET. Taxes are included in the discounted price (unless you live in Quebec), but shipping is extra. So what are you waiting for? There's only a few days left!
