Current DNA Test Market Prediction
The information below is based on DNA market research compiled by DNA test market expert and genealogy author/educator Thomas MacEntee of Abundant Genealogy.
“The current pricing of 50% off Health + Ancestry DNA test kit at 23andMe is valid through December 2nd . . . regularly $199 and now just $99. In addition the same sale offers the 23andMe Ancestry + Traits DNA test kit at a $20 reduction . . for just $99! In addition, the same pricing is available for both 23andMe test kits at Amazon which offers FREE SHIPPING for its Amazon Prime Members.
Will this be the best possible price for 23andMe this holiday season? For the Health + Ancestry DNA test kit I would say YES. I can’t see any of the Big 5 going below the $99 price threshold. They may offer free shipping or perhaps a discount on upgrading from Ancestry + Traits, but $99 seems to be the basement level pricing. “
“AncestryDNA has added new products and features over the past few months so direct comparison to 2018 is a bit difficult. The current price of just $59 for Ancestry is the same as last year’s pre-Black Friday price. I expect that while Ancestry could lower the price to just $49 over the Turkey Five (Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday), I bet they will focus on pricing and deals for their new AncestryHealth™ and AncestryDNA + Traits products.
Will Ancestry lower the price for AncestryHealth to $99? Not likely . . . they will likely come in at $129. You could see a discount on adding the Traits feature to AncestryDNA . . . normally $20 with a sale price of $10. Also look for free shipping options, discounts on multiple kits, etc.
Also keep in mind that current November 2019 sales at AncestryDNA are slated to end on Thursday, November 28th. Expect to see new promotions starting either on the 28th or on Black Friday, November 29th.”
Family Tree DNA
“Like Ancestry DNA, FamilyTreeDNA has launched an impressive set of sales for November 2019, which also end on Thursday, November 28th. With a current sale price of $59 for Family Finder (the same autosomal DNA test as AncestryDNA and others), there is room for Family Finder to drop to $49 as it did last Black Friday.
With other DNA test kits (Y-DNA and mtDNA) plus test kit bundles already reduced up to 40%, I am not sure we’ll see a drop BELOW this threshold. Would a 50% reduction on mtDNA Full Sequence be out of the question? Not at all.
To its detriment, FamilyTreeDNA does NOT have a health-related product in among its DNA test kits, plus its pro-law enforcement stance in terms of privacy has caused some consumers to look to other vendors such as Ancestry and 23andMe. So it may have to do something drastic to attract sales during the Turkey Five. Could a $39 Family Finder price happen this year?”
“Living DNA has also announced a new configuration of tests with four products: Starter, Ancestry, Wellbeing, and Wellbeing + Ancestry. With prices starting as low as $49 for the Living DNA Starter kit, and savings of up to 30% on other tests, I don’t see much room for further discounts on Black Friday . . . EXCEPT notice that the Living DNA Starter kit does NOT currently have a discount. This could mean a $39 price point for Black Friday. Even without further discounts, over Black Friday weekend expect to see shipping and upgrade incentives.”
“Currently MyHeritage DNA is priced at $59 USD during a special MyHeritage DNA One Week Sale which runs through Sunday, November 10th. There is a free shipping incentive when purchasing two or more MyHeritage DNA test kits. The current sales does not offer a discount for MyHeritage Health + Ancestry or an upgrade from Ancestry Only to Health + Ancestry.
MyHeritage DNA will announce new sales on Monday, November 11th. Don’t expect any drastic reductions prior to Black Friday given that MyHeritage has a history of deep discounts over the past few months. I expect MyHeritage DNA Ancestry Only to drop to $49 USD with a possible drop BELOW $49 on or around Black Friday. What you most likely will see starting next week is a 50% off sale on MyHeritage DNA Health + Ancestry with a reduction from $199 to $99!
“Many consumers shop on Amazon since their Amazon Prime Membership offers free shipping. Currently, the sales at 23andMe and Ancestry are priced the same at Amazon.
Expect to see special one-day only flash sales at Amazon on DNA test kits. One example would be after the current 23andMe promotion expires on December 2nd, we may still see a special 50% 23andMe Health + Ancestry sale at Amazon.”
