Tips and Tricks for Getting FREE SHIPPING at AncestryDNA
Whether there is a big sale on AncestryDNA (like the current AncestryDNA Family History Month Sale valid through Sunday, October 21st) or not, many of our readers ask how they can avoid the shipping fees that are added when buying any DNA test kit.
Depending on the vendor, these fees can run as high as $12.95 USD per test; even more for expedited shipping or to ship outside the United States.
So here are some tricks that we’ve used when working with AncestryDNA:
FREE SHIPPING for Amazon Prime Members
The easiest and consistently reliable way to get free shipping is to purchase AncestryDNA via Amazon as an Amazon Prime Member. Depending upon your location (urban area vs. rural), you can even get SAME DAY SHIPPING for free!

FREESHIPDNA Coupon at AncestryDNA
While AncestryDNA has a standing promo code for free shipping – FREESHIPDNA – that can be used when ordering AncestryDNA at the Ancestry website. However, this code NEVER works when there is a sale and the success rate has been spotty.
FREE SHIPPING on AncestryDNA with Multiple DNA Kits
Periodically, when AncestryDNA is holding a sale, it will offer some type of incentive for multiple purchases. Either free shipping when purchasing 3 or more AncestryDNA test kits (must ship to the same address) or a discount when purchasing multiple kits.
Currently, during the AncestryDNA Summer Sale, you can save $15 USD when purchasing 3 AncestryDNA kits. So, instead of paying $207 USD (which is the sale price of $69 USD each), you pay just $177 USD. The $15 USD savings does not offset the shipping fee of $9.95 USD for each kit, but it does help!
