DNA test kits have been around for a while, but they’re kind of expensive. As a result, it can be tough to figure out if you really want to shell out $200 to get more information on your ancestry. Well, there’s a mega-sale on one popular test kit right now, and it’s bringing the price tag way down.

It’s the 23andMe DNA Test, and it includes more than 125 reports on your health, wellness and ancestry, among other things. Right now, it’s $99 (down from $199) as part of Amazon Prime Day.

There’s a lot to love about this deal. The kit includes the standard Ancestry Service, as well as more than 85 DNA-based online reports on your Health Predispositions, Carrier Status (a test that determines if you carry certain inherited conditions), Wellness and Traits with just one test. After taking the test, you’ll get reports on how your genes play into your wellbeing and lifestyle choices, how DNA influences your facial features, taste and smell, and where your DNA is from out of more than 1,000 regions in the world.

The kits were developed and designed by world-class scientists and medical experts, and they have a great reputation. It’s also a painless process: You simply provide a saliva sample using the at-home kit and send it in. Your results will be ready in about six to eight weeks.

People have all kinds of amazing stories in the reviews, like a person who solved the 83-year-old mystery of her grandfather’s true identity. Another reviewer bought it for her husband and raved about the gift. “The results are AWESOME and he loves it. However, I am apparently married to a Neanderthal,” she wrote.

This offer is pretty amazing, and it won’t last. Go ahead and score that kit you’ve been eyeing for ages. It’ll make for a fun afternoon or perfect gift for a loved one down the road.
