Except for today, because 23andMe's Prime Day price seriously has us shook. Their Genetics + Health Ancestry test (one of the only at-home DNA health screenings out there) is on sale for just $99, which is $100 off its regular price and the lowest we've ever seen it by far. BLESS.DNA testing kits are one of those things that are on most everyone's bucket list. But regardless of how cool they are, it may be hard to justify paying nearly $200 to swab your cheek when you have bills to pay.
It's called 23andMe as a nod to each person's unique set of 23 chromosomes and it's the only kit in the DNA lineup to offer health screenings aside from autosomal testing. Fill the tube with your spit, send it back for testing, and get your results in 6-8 weeks. Results are kept indefinitely, so you can log on at any time to see or update your family tree.
Like we said, the unique thing about 23andMe is that it does health and wellness screenings. On top of the basic tracing of your maternal and paternal line and getting that cool DNA pie chart, 23andMe's deluxe option includes a hereditary health check on 75+ possible problematic traits.This can give valuable information about genetic illnesses, health risks, carrier status on health conditions, or traits that may run in your family (including BRCA1 and BRCA2), thus providing you with an important heads up about any checkups you may want to schedule. Basically, this is a less anxiety-inducing alternative to checking WebMD and assuming that you're dying.
Regularly $199, you can snag 23andMe's Genetics + Health DNA testing kit for its lowest price ever of $99. (Their basic genetics-only test is normally $99, so you're basically getting the health screening for free. This is rare AF, guys.) Learn more and take advantage of the deal here.
