23andMe's Deal happening right now!

Guys, I'm going to keep it simple and brief. 23andme DNA testing is on sale again.

Ancestry + Traits Service - $103
Health + Ancestry Service - $124

If you're paranoid about having your genetic code being analyzed, by all means please move on, otherwise, it's a pretty great deal. I had fun with it.

Edit: for some reason: affiliate link links to the US site. Let's try again:

The issue that most people have here isn't that their DNA is being analyzed, but rather that it's being sold to shady corporations and given to spying government agencies.

If 23andMe pledged to respect basic privacy by not selling your DNA to the highest bidder then I would recommend it. But until then, be careful.

If you want to do genealogy, use traditional research methods. DNA is just going to be stored in databases and used for nefarious purposes.

I purchased a similar kit (ancestorydna). Waste of money in my opinion.

If you have $120 dollars spare, go ahead. It does not add value to my life.

They used to charge me $248to sell my personal information to corporations for private profit and now want only $124?

Sign me up!

Can I give them my banking account number and PIN at the same time? Or is there an extra charge?
Earthlings, you're evicted.
You are not getting the damage deposit back.

Thanks OP! Bought one and found out that my distant ancestors were monkeys. Guess who ain’t going to church on sundays?;)
