Reminder - 23andMe's subscription model ends today at 5pm PST

Don't forget that today is the last day to order a 23andMe kit under the subscription model. You can purchase the kit for either $99 upfront and $9 per month for the next 12 months or you can pay $207 upfront. Starting at 5pm PST the price increases to $299. This is the last chance to get into the database for a low entry price.

With the risk of sounding like a commercial, if you were planning on purchasing a kit in the near future, now is the time to order.  I don't want any of my reader's to miss this opportunity just because they didn't know about it.

More details are in Tuesday's post.


  1. What if we tested there quite a while ago - like years. Is there something I should be doing with my brother's kit. I am pretty sure we did not get the upgrade

  2. Hi,
    At this time, there is no benefit for genealogy customers to upgrade, however that could change in time. Also if you are interested in the latest health results, like Alzheimer's, then consider upgrading. The new upgrade price will be $199 until the end of May and then it goes up to $249, but you can order for $49 + $9 per month x 12 months from your account until 5pm PST.
