Thanksgiving is the time when all robots give thanks for Black Friday sales on components needed to make more robots. We want to do our part to help you bring more robots into the world, so here's a list of the best places to get your Black Friday robot bargains in 2010. Like last year Pololu is offering some of the best Black Friday deals around:
Starting this Thursday, November 25th, 2010, Pololu is offering huge discounts (up to 60% off) off selected products, including the Pololu 3pi Robot, Maestro Servo Controllers, Simple Motor Controllers, sensors, and more!
Electronic Goldmine is offering $10 off any order of $60 or more if you use coupon code 60NOV2010 during checkout. Tower Hobbies is offering a $30 discount on orders of $199 or more. BGMicro has a whole page of cool, discounted electronics for their Thanksgiving Specials, and don't miss their Virtual Sidewalk Sale. HobbyPartz has a long list of discounts on servos, motors, LiPo gear, and more on their Black Friday Super Special page. If you're up for braving the 3am crowd of frenzied shoppers at the meatspace Black Friday sales, you can pick up a Roomba 400 at Kohl's for $99. And in New York, you'll be able to pick up all sorts of Open Source hardware kits at the new MakerBot Botcave store, which opens for the first time on Nov 26.
Update: Trossen has added a Black Friday Sale. Alex from Trossen Robotics writes, We’ve had our heads buried with developing a new product line and forgot that Black Friday and Cyber Monday is this weekend, lol. We just blogged about a quick sale we put together. Customers get 10% off their entire order by entering “cyber10” in the coupon code section during checkout.
Update 2: While I was home stuffing myself with Turkey and dressing, Barry from Robot Add-ons emailed to let us know you can get 15% off Roomba parts and accessories by using the code "robotnet15off" during checkout at Robot Add-Ons. There's still time left to get some Cyber Monday bargains.
