Christmas Candy Giveaway - While Supplies Last!


UPDATE: as of 7:30PM MST all 770 free Christmas Candy Pro Minis have been claimed! Thank you for participating and we hope to do more giveaways like this in the future!


Welcome folks - it’s time for the Limited Edition Christmas Candy Arduino Pro Mini giveaway!

alt text

The details are simple - on December 18th, starting at 9 a.m Mountain Time, we’ll be putting one of our Limited Edition 5V Pro Minis in the first 700 orders over $50 (not including shipping/tax), for free!

We’ll be putting the Pro Minis in qualifying orders until we run out - that could be a few hours, it could be a few minutes, it could last the whole day (or even bleed into tomorrow).

Thank you for another great year and happy holidays!

  • Thanks to whoever it was at Sparkfun that made more Simon Says SMD kits this morning. They came back in stock right before I ordered at 9am, completing the cart I’ve been carefully crafting for the last week.

    • Glad all that time I spent snipping those tiny tape and reel parts is appreciated! Enjoy the kit, it’s on my (ridiculously long) list of projects to do as well.

  • December is like the month o'SparkFun for me this year. Gunna put one of those fly Cam’s in one of my home made rocket’s and get some cool footage from a rocket’s point of view:) Thanks for the treat!

  • Awesome! I got so excited about the free arduino candy (and free shipping for going over $60) that I forgot to use the discount code that I had. Oh well, it’s cool, I still got a great deal! Thanks Sparkfun!

  • And the stocks are out ? - Will I know if iam within the 700 lucky ones when i checkout ?

  • I got this on 9am and 10 seconds.

  • Are you serious??!!!! I just ordered $300+ worth of stuff this past week and NOW you give free stuff??? can’t you make an exception and send me one too?

  • Huh, the minimum price changed from $50 to $33 and back. 42 left in stock…

  • Awesome!

  • I like the modesty at the end “or even bleed into tomorrow”…I think we all know it won’t bleed in to tomorrow.

    • Stock went from 770 to 300 in about 4 hours, so yeah… you’re probably right. This is the first time we’ve done a free gift thing like this, though, so there was no telling how long it would take.

      The cool thing is instead of hacking the website to do this just the one time we did it the “right” way - that is, we built a tool that lets us do this for any amount of any product for any duration of time. So we’ll probably use it again some time in the future.

      • I noticed that when removing things from the cart, my order total became “$NaN”, you’ll want to look into that bug before the next free stuff day.

  • Woo! I held off on ordering parts for two different projects and was able to snag one of these! Thanks!
