A genetics testing kit that made Oprah's Favorite Things List 2017 is half price this week.

The catch? You have tobuy two of the Ancestry Service Kits from 23andMe to get them discounted. It's a $198 value for less than $100, according to Testing can take up to 8 weeks, though some have received results in as few as three weeks, the website says.

Tests do not involved blood or hair — people who are taking tests must provide saliva.

Reports include the following information:

  • Ancestry Composition
  • Maternal Haplogroup
  • Paternal Haplogroup
  • Neanderthal Ancestry
  • Your DNA Family

It is also possible to buy an ancestry and health test kit from 23andMe for $199. The company website has a sample of what that report would look like.

The DNA kit that is on sale right now is also available to Amazon Prime members through Amazon for $69 plus free shipping.
