'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

One stand-out deal we've spotted that isn't a device: 23andMe's DNA test kit. Right now, you can get one of the best DNA test kits on the market for 31% off its original price of $229. 

23andMe's three-step test kit can help you discover how the specific sequences in your DNA might impact your future. For example, the Health and Ancestry kit looks at how your DNA might affect your chances of certain health conditions, including diabetes, atrial fibrillation, high blood pressure, migraine, Alzheimer's disease, and more.

The kit can also examine your lifestyle factors to determine lactose intolerance, muscle composition, caffeine consumption, and alcohol flush reaction. You can expect to get your results in five to six weeks. 

Of all the DNA test kits available, 23andMe was the first DNA test kit approved by the Federal Drug Administration as a screener for potential diseases. And 23andMe is even eligible for FSA/HAS reimbursement, so you have the potential to save even more money. 

Learn more about your genes this year with the 23andMe DNA test kit. Amazon's Big Spring Sale lasts through March 25, so be sure to snag this deal before then.
