Sparkfun has the Netduino Plus 2 on sale for $50 (+shipping) and has a coupon code RETROSPARK for $10 off $40.  Sale runs until 11:59 p.m. MT on 8/17/14.

 

https://www.sparkfun.../products/11608

 

Get one while they're cheap!

 

Edit:

Here's a full list of what they have on sale right now: https://www.sparkfun.com/news/1564

Also, the RETROSPARK code is good for $10 off any order of $40 or more, it is not NP2 specific.

Man, that's tempting. And I already have a lot of NP2s :)

The 1000-unit pricing on NP2 is $41.96. $40 for 1-unit almost seems like doing something rebellious/mischevious. ;)

Glad to have great resellers like SparkFun,

Chris

But Chris you are the company. It groks that you'd have several examples of the products standing around doing almost anything.

 

 

Including that collection of Go hardware that was wired together to eventually solve the equations for that time machine you were told about by a short individual with the hair style that four individuals from where he sounded was also from......

Pretty good deal, thanks! I think I am going to get one. Also shipping is free if you spend $75.

RETROSPARK promotional code doesn't work on this item. I just tried to buy it. The price is $50.

Hmm, try adding something else to your cart.  I was able to use it to buy an N+2 and 4 MOSFETs on Tuesday.

 

I just added one to my cart and went just short of purchasing and it looked like it was working for me.  At what point were you rejected?

It worked for me last night, though I bought some other items that I needed for my projects, and was also able to take advantage of free shipping. The $10 discount was applied at the very end of checkout, before you hit Submit. You are right though, after you go to your cart, add the code and hit apply, nothing seems to happen. You have to go almost all the way through

I just bought 8 x Netduino 1's on clearance for 10 each. Perfect for an intro to microcontrollers session that I'm about to do for my colleagues (C# developers). It's just gone from a talk to a hands-on lab. Should be fun.

Fred, where did you buy them for 10 pounds each?

From a UK reseller that I assume was clearing out older stock. They still have 2 left right now.

The hands-on went well. Got everyone playing with switches, LEDs, PWM (servos and LED dimming) and a little bit of I2C to some random peripherals I had lying around. Difficult squeezing this into a lunch hour though.

I recently won an auction for a brand new Netduino MakerShed kit for about $20 shipped. Includes Chris' "Getting Started" book, all components used in the book, mini breadboard and wires, MakerShield and Netduino Plus! I am happy.

RadioShack was clearing out their MakerShed Netduino kits recently (well, I think 2 months ago by now) for $19.99.

That's why they have been popping up on eBay.

It's a great kit, comes with a lot of peripherals that alone are worth $20 retail.
