Any point in getting a 23andme if you're already testing with Ancestry?

Hi,

I'm waiting on my Ancestry test to come through, and I'm wondering if there's any point in me getting a 23andme test done too. I know different tests have different advantages/disadvantages, and 23andme has things that Ancestry doesn't provide like haplogroups. However, I have heard it overestimates smaller admixture and has more tendency for "noise" ethnicities to crop up.

To my understanding, for a short time earlier this year 23andme allowed Ancestry raw data to be uploaded. Should I wait for the next opportunity to come along or should I get a brand new kit?
