23andMe and AncestryDNA both start at $99, although AncestryDNA is now offering it for $79. 23andMe actually has a service and price comparison on their website, which you can find here: https://www.23andme.com/compare-dna-tests/. However, this comparison is between AncestryDNA's $99 plan and 23andMe's $199 plan, so you would be paying more to get the extra features.
With 23andMe's basic $99 plan, you get this:
- Ancestry Composition
- Share & Compare
- Neanderthal Ancestry
- Your DNA Family
- DNA Relative Finder
You can read more about each feature here: https://www.23andme.com/dna-ancestry/. You can upgrade to Health + Ancestry for $199 for even more benefits: https://www.23andme.com/dna-health-ancestry/
AncestryDNA doesn't state exactly what is offered, but here is the response to "Why would I take the AncestryDNA test?":AncestryDNA is a cutting edge DNA testing service that utilizes some of the latest autosomal testing technology to revolutionize the way you discover your family history. This service combines advanced DNA science with the world's largest online family history resource to predict your genetic ethnicity and help you find new family connections. It maps ethnicity going back multiple generations and provides insight into such possibilities as: what region of Europe are my ancestors from, or am I likely to have East Asian heritage? AncestryDNA can also help identify relationships with unknown relatives through a dynamic list of DNA matches.
I hope this helps!
