Group Buy

Hello everyone!

We are doing another adafruit group buy. The idea is that you pick out what you want and we put it on the list to order and if the order is large enough we get a discount. Payment will be due when the order is placed. The discount varies by item, but typically is 30% of retail price. Not everything gets a discount – most test equipment, 3D printers and supplies, and dev boards don’t, for instance. But many components, Arduino shields, displays, sensors, and accessories do get the discount.


  • Now-June 10: Potential buyers get their orders in.
  • June 10, 5PM EDT: Deadline for new orders. Google doc is protected, and items are checked for availability.
  • June 17, 7:30 PM EDT: Adafruit finalization meeting. Confirmed buyers come to Hacksburg to finalize orders and pay. Adafruit order is placed that night.
  • Late June/Early July: Order arrives at Hacksburg and is divided by buyer; buyers notified to pick up orders at the next Hacksburg meeting.
