DNA sales for Black Friday 2017

Black Friday is a concept that's been imported from America. It's the day after the US Thanksgiving holiday and traditionally the day when Americans start their Christmas shopping. The retailers often provide special deals to lure everyone to the shops. Lots of shops and websites are now trying to do the same in the UK and, whether we like or not, Black Friday is here to stay. For genetic genealogists benefit of this gimmick is that the DNA testing companies are jumping onto the bandwagon and offering DNA kits at reduced prices not just for their US customers but for people in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and other countries too.

I was going to do a blog post summarising all the current Black Friday offers but Michelle Leonard has already beaten me to it. If you want to find out about all the special deals make sure you check out Michelle's blog post Black Friday DNA Sales 2017. She will update the page with new offers as they become available. Note that many of these discounts are for a very limited period only and will expire on Monday which is now known as Cyber Monday  the day when many people (though not me!) start their online Christmas shopping.

For full details of all the Family Tree DNA sale prices, including all the discounted upgrades, see my previous post FTDNA's 13th International Genetic Genealogy Conference and the FTDNA sale.

If you've not yet had your DNA tested or want to test additional family members or you want to get your DNA into a different database now is a great time to test.
