DNA Day always produces great sales at the DNA testing companies. Here’s a breakdown of the prices available this week and the best autosomal feature of each vendor.
|Company||Regular Price||Sale Price||Ethnicity||Matching to other testers||Additional Tools||Best Feature|
|FamilyTreeDNA – Family Finder *1 *2||79||49||Yes||Yes||Yes||Maternal and paternal bucketing of matches without parents testing|

*2 – Sale ends April 25th.
*4 – Sale expiration date not provided. LivingDNA’s matching has been in a very preliminary stage for months, and while I feel confident that eventually they will have viable matching, today matching should not be considered in a purchase decision.
*5 – Sale ends April 28th. Free shipping with purchase of 2 or more kits.
Test yourself and close family members (parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, etc.), especially the older generations, to make full use of the tools and matching.
Fishing in all the ponds either directly or by transfer assures that you don’t miss that critical match.
Many of these prices only last 2 more days.
