  • Just to throw in my 2c...
    For me, it was a waste of time. It was also fun. I did spend several hours patiently waiting for a cart to move and hitting refresh, but that time wasn't taken away from anything critical.
    I didn't get my stuff, but I will probably make a purchase of around $60 next time I feel like spending money. I honestly didn't realize all the cool stuff on this site. I've never purchased from here before, but I've worked with teams who've purchased parts from here, and have been considering a purchase for some time. So in my case, the marketing/advertising aspect is a success.
    Yes there's some people who buy just to re-sell stuff, or who may buy stuff they're going to end up not using. But I think that on the whole, most people who got stuff are the intended recipients- new customers trying to start projects or previous customers getting a thank-you gift.
    Thanks for the effort SparkFun!
