EDIT: 3/30/2014 Midnight - Arduino Day is over! If you placed a backorder on March 29th then don’t worry about settling your balance right away. We’ll get in touch with you when payment is due! Also, if you contacted Customer Service before the Arduino Day sale ended please be patient and we’ll respond as soon as possible.
It’s worldwide “Arduino Day” - celebrating Arduino’s 10th birthday! Arduino has been a key player in the DIY movement and has been instrumental in 100s of our projects. To be it succinctly - we’re fans.
So March 29th we are offering the following boards at a discount price. These discounts run March 29th, 2014, from 12:00:01 a.m. - 11:59:59 p.m. Mountain Time. There is a limit of two units for each product (per order) and back-orders are allowed.
EDIT: 3/29/2014 3:45am (Mountain Time) - We’ve identified the backorder malfunction and enacted a work-around. Products are back-order-able again! Thank you for bearing with us.
Distributors - these prices don’t apply to you, but we have a special discount for you (we emailed you a list of your items).
So on March 29th, here are the deals!
We hope this helps you build something amazing! Happy Birthday, Arduino!

If you are paying with PayPal, and your order has back-ordered items, you may not be redirected to the PayPal site. This is because we do not take payment until your order is ready to ship. Once everything is in stock, we’ll send you a money request.
