News - Free Day Recap
about 5 years ago
They did get the opportunity….as did I, and I was equally frustrated that I was only to get a page or so thru the ordering process. It was NO different than the lottery…it was a crapshoot…a thousand people won, the rest of us didn’t. Thank them for the chance at some free merch and move on!
To the haters and Sparkfun crew. While I didn’t manage to squeeze into one of those coveted first 1000 spots (not from lack of effort), I commend Sparkfun for giving us the opportunity, and as a result plan to complete my order anyway (although I’ll wait a couple weeks to let them catch up).
I am not a returning customer, and in fact I had never even heard of Sparkfun prior to this event. However I intend to be a returning customer going forward, as a result of their obvious appreciation of their customers, and enthusiasm for what they do.
To those complaining about the folks grabbing up free stuff only to hawk it on eBay…welcome to the world around you…you don’t like it, change it! Also, if you’ve never run an e-commerce site, trying to predict load when it can range from 1 to 1 billion potential customers….I suggest you give it a try before you cast stones.
Congrats to those who made it through yesterday, and thank you Sparkfun for living up to your name!
