Discounts on DNA tests thru Mother's Day #dna


Erica Fox Zabusky
 

Last month I attended a webinar about DNA testing, and we learned that many companies would be offering a discount for National DNA Day on April 25th. I missed that deadline, but learned that companies offer a Mother's Day discount through Sunday, May 9th. The companies I found with offers are: 
1. Ancestry - $60 (down from $100); 
2. Family Tree DNA - $60 (down from $80), with option to add mtDNA for $140 (down from $160); and 
3. My Heritage - $60 (down from $80). 
 
It was suggested we get 2 tests done - one with Ancestry and one with 23andMe, as they don't allow transfer of data between the two. I'm curious about Family Tree, as they are affiliated with JewishGen, but have a much smaller database (with likely a higher percentage of Jews in it than the others), and My Heritage, which is a newer company. Should I spring for 2 tests, one with Ancestry and another one? Or just start Ancestry and wait for the next holiday discount to purchase another test?

You can transfer test results from Ancestry DNA and 23 and me DNA to FamilyTree DNA and MyHeritage DNA, but you cannot transfer to Ancestry or MyHeritage from any of the others.

Correction:

I meant to say you cannot transfer to Ancestry or 23 and me.

I would take the Ancestry, which can be uploaded to MyHeritage and FTDNA. It will give you plenty of data to start with. 
There will plenty of opportunities later on for more discounted tests, for Father's Day, Christmas etc.
