Seeed Studio March sale: Bus Pirate, USB Infrared Toy, ATX Breakout

Seeed spring sale

Seeed Studio shares our vision for the open source community. Since the beginning, Seeed has been our partner for project manufacture, sales, and shipping. That free us to concentrate on the fun stuff, but still make projects available to the community.

Seeed kicked off a spring sale on Mar 1st. Each week they’ll have a Flash Deal, with additional discounts during the whole month. If you are itching to pick up one of our projects, this might be the best chance. Seeed is offering these discounts themselves – you get a deal and we still get paid!

  1. Though prominently advertised as above, the IR Toy is labelled “This item is excluded from current promotion” at seeed.

  2. No bus pirate today either…

    And while there is a promotion for the mini soldering iron – US edition, not so for the EU edition :(
