It's DNA Day! Special offer from 23 and Me (4/23/10 only)

Apparently today is DNA Day, and in honor of this special holiday, the Genetics/Ancestry testing company 23 and Me (founded by the wife of Google founder Sergey Brin) is offering a crazy ridiculous deal on their services.  I was thinking about getting my DNA tested before, but I couldn't justify the hefty pricetag...with this deal, I might just do it.

They are offering their Complete Edition (includes both the Ancestry and Health Editions) for $99.00 - regularly priced at $499!  That's a $400 savings, people!  It's not like I have an extra $99 lying around, but this is something I have been interested in doing ever since I heard about it a few years ago...and something I'd be willing to spend $99 on, I think.

Go to for more information (limit 10 per person; offer only good TODAY, April 23rd, 2010, in honor of DNA day).

What do you think?  Will you be buying?

UPDATE:  5:25pm, the sale has ended, I bought mine.  I was still on the fence, and saw this tweet from 23andMe and realized I didn't want to miss out.  Thank goodness they started following me, and that I followed them back, or I wouldn't have made it!  I'll post an update about this whole genome thing when I get my saliva kit ;-)


  1. This sounds so cool. I cannot WAIT until you blog your results. I am fascinated with this type of thing!
