How much do rapid antigen tests cost?

Pricing varies. You can expect to pay around $25–$30 for a 2-pack rapid antigen test (RAT). Many retailers only offer testing kits in packs of 5 which are priced between $50 and $100. Some stores only offer bulk buying solutions where you'll need to purchase in packs of more than 20. These are usually available for $220–$350.

You can find more information in our COVID-19 home test buying guide.
