23andMe offered a special discount on its test kit during the holiday season. Instead of the regular $99 plus $9 per month for a year, 23andMe offered a $23 discount. The special offer could not be refused and became a nice holiday gift. The kit came in a nice small package, the box was actually smaller than expected and ready to be sent after collecting the sample. And the instructions are pretty straightforward to get ready to do some spitting.
