To qualify for the free Raspberry Pi 3, just add more than $20 in in-stock items to your cart and checkout (buy a Raspberry Pi 3, get another Raspberry Pi 3 free). If the deal hasn't expired, you should see a "congratulations" message in bold red at the top of the first checkout page. Don't forget to click the "Claim Your Pi" button after completing your order.

There is a limited quantity of Pi3's to give away, and prior Arrow.com promotions have sold out in minutes. Good luck!

Got the $3.14 deal last time.
I'd say best buy a pi, get a pi free. Everything else on their site seems expensive. 2 pis for less than 40 USD is a good deal.

I'll skip this time. Ran out of ideas for short projects, and no time for big projects. It'd have been nice if pi3 had gigabit Ethernet.

Thanks op

Why would you need Gigabit Ethernet on an embedded platform?

I built an isolated OMV with a couple usb drives for backup of important documents. And currently, the transfer speed is capped by the 100mb. Would be nice to have gigabit. Pine64 is of similar, or cheaper, but does gigabit. I can't see why pi are not there yet.

Meh. You get downvoted for everything nowadays. I'd vote for a system that let us see who downvotes.i bet you it's someone with 10 posts or less, 1 upvote and 10,000 downvotes.

The reason why I put the ? is because I first checked About Us and it mentioned that Arrow was a global companies with 150 offices. But I didn't know they ship to Canada. :)

Actually, you can opt to be notified of downvotes but who would bother? Those who like to downvote other people who are try to help are usually scums in the real world anyway. I've only give 3 downvotes and that's to someone who was really acting like a jerk a few weeks after the downvoting option was introduced but that's the last time I downvoted since it doesn't help anyway unless the advice is crap or a post was a scam.

According to a rep I chatted with, the duties need to be paid on orders going to Canada. Not sure how much though...as you can get away with ordering ~$42 CAD worth of goods (enclosure, power supply, NOOBS card) and qualify for the free PI. If they declare the PI's value on it, that's another 35 USD on the order...making it ~80+ CAD order. Anybody with more experience care to chime in?

Thanks
