I was going to post this earlier too. This is a better deal than the 23andMe health+dna for $99.

Here you get for $69 (or less/test if you purchase more...):
AncestryDNA database (largest, though not as professional tool as 23andMe)
GEDMATCH
FTDNA
MYHERITAGE
PROMETHEASE health reports which are superior to 23andMe ($5)

On the 23andMe deal you get for $99:
23andMe database (large, better tools)
GEDMATCH
FTDNA
MYHERITAGE
23andMe health reports. which are pretty gimmicky, high-level information "for dummies-style"

So you're paying at least $25 more in the 23andMe deal for the 23andMe health reports vs. promethease (or $30 more if you want to add Promethease as well).

Now, if you are serious about genealogy and want to maximize your matches, you should buy both of these deals to get into AncestryDNA & 23andMe's databases. But if you only want one, or just are more curious about your own ancestry without matching cousins, go the AncestryDNA route and upload free to the other sites.

Does anyone know if 23andMe or Ancestry solicits personal data or how your data is shared? Personal security risks or any other concerns?

Thanks for the info. In comparison, how do these compare to the MyHeritage DNA test that's currently on sale for $49?

Well, MyHeritage will accept other company's tests for free upload. So get the Ancestry and then upload to MyHeritage your results.

This is supposed to be much better than 23andMe.

Sure - but the MyHeritage test is $20 cheaper yet. Do you know if the MyHeritage data is similar to the Ancestry data, in that it can be uploaded to promethease?

Yes its similar in data, and yes you can still upload it to other sites. However, for $20 more (actually only $15 more after shipping), it's definitely worth getting into Ancestry's database as well.

DNA testing, from what I've seen from other people's experiences is nothing short of a palm reading.
