AncestryDNA Tests Now Available For Everyone
It looks like Ancestry.com has taken their Autosomal DNA test, AncestryDNA, public - and raised the price.
Subscribers can now purchase an AncestryDNA test for $129 while non-subscribers will pay $199 (US customers only). There does not appear to be a limit on the number of kits you can purchase, though you must purchase them one at a time. Their FAQs have not been updated yet to reflect the new policies.
This is a tough decision. Right now, Ancestry has the least expensive Autosomal DNA test. They also have the test with the fewest features and least transparency. I doubt that the price will go up in the future, so I won't rush to buy it. In fact, I can't recommend the AncestryDNA test right now. Both ftDNA and 23andMe currently offer a superior, though more expensive, product.
