All you hardware enthusiasts and makers! I came across this blog from Sparkfun about their “Almost Free day”, basically on the 20th of July they will have a sale where 1000’s of items are €0.01 cent!
Save the date: 7/20/2016!
More info here: https://www.sparkfun.com/news/2139
Yea I heard about it too, here’s a bit more info:
Sparkfun are selling 3,000 items for $0.01 each from 10 a.m. MT on 7/20/2016
They’ll have 300 each of nine different board types and one mini LilyPad bundle.
None of these boards have export restrictions, so customers around the world can participate.
The 10 different products will all be represented as one SKU. That means you won’t know which product you get until it arrives. On Almost Free Day you’ll just add the “Almost Free” SKU to your cart, and if you make it through checkout before the boards run out, you’ll get one of the 3,000 boards.
They’ll also have special offer IoT and wearable bundles going live (for $74.99) at the same time. The event will last as long as it takes to sell through the 3,000 boards.
While all orders within the US over $75 will ship free, please bear in mind if you live outside the US you will have to pay for shipping, import duties & taxes. So take the time before the sale to assess all the costs and see if it is worth it for your Dojo.
What to do if you want to participate in Almost Free Day:
