How about a couple of URLs, because when I go to "mouser" I wind up at au.mouser.com, maybe pico gets us.mouser.com or something.

The price has went up since the day of the announcement. It was 36.49 USD according to my e-mail receipt. Hope they don't raise the price I have to pay after the fact.

That link redirects me to mouser.be, price there is €40.36. And that is without tax, so I must add another 21% + shipping.

$105.08 total

Yikes!

Unfortunately I won't be getting one any time soon at that price smiley-sad

 @GRAYnomad

Is there a way to get around the price problem by having someone from the USA buy then ship to you or is it just the way the currencies work out? I am thinking it probably won't help but, it is a thought.

According to Google...
48.95 US dollars = 47.3221 Australian dollars
66.08 AUD = 68.3664 USD

If I buy them at 48.95, fly to Australia, sell them at 66.08, I would get 19.4164 (USD) per board.  Hmm.  What's the carry-on limit?  50 pounds?  I wonder how many boards that is?

48.95 US dollars = 37.7322 euros
40.36 EUR = 52.3510 USD

Not as lucrative but it may pay for the plane ticket.

The AUS has been higher than the USD for a long time, so they should be cheaper here, not ~30% more smiley-mad

We normally get the "we have to ship them all the way to Australia" BS line but it's just as far from Italy to the US as it is to Aus. Heck I reckon Mouser is such a large customer UPS/Fedex almost pay them to do the shipping.

That would work, we'll see how things are after the dust settles. I've got some LPC code I wouldn't mind porting across, but it's not a priority at this point and I have other things to work on.

I don't know about you guys, but after reading the stuff in the Due forum and elsewhere on the internet, I'm very disappointed by the new Due. No ethernet header, no RTC support yet, only 2 IRQs... I know this will be added soon but it sounds to me like it was still released too soon. There is already talk of future boards with additional hardware features (like ethernet) being released. I have cancelled my order and will continue to use the Uno and Mega for a while. Mostly because I have 20 or so shields I built or purchased that won't work with the Due without level translators (what a pain).

It takes me to uk.mouser.com and gives me content in English and prices in Euro (40,38 €)  but with the French-style decmal separator ("," rather than ".") smiley-eek so  think it is storing language and currency preferences in cookies.

Welcome to the world of "geographical restriction" pricing. Yes, it seems the rest of the world is indeed getting "special" pricing from Mouser (and an increasing number of other retailers are starting to do this too, apparently), which has nothing to do with exchange rates, it is simply opportunistic pricing (we will charge in each market what we think we can get away with).

One way to get around the websites picking up your country from your IP address is to use a VPN with servers in the US (if that's the location you want them to think you are coming in from.) Your next challenge will be to see if you can get them to ship outside the US if you use the US website to purchase from. If not, you may need to use a postal forwarding service, or get a friend in the US to forward it on.

Sucks, but that's the price you pay for not being smart enough to be born an 'mercan. Good luck.

But don't feel too bad. It looks like Mouser felt the 'mercans were getting too a good a deal, and so have put their prices up too (considerably! $36.49 -> $48.95 > 34% increase!) I wonder if the original $36.49 was simply a pricing error, or whether it has been "suggested" to them by the suppliers (i.e., Arduino) that they fall in line and stick closer to the list price, at least while the launch is underway.

I'd kill myself before paying the au.mouser.com prices, though. Someone at mouser must have had a bad shrimp off the barbie, or got bitten by a rabid koala bear or something.

Edit: Interesting link

Well, to tell you the truth, I think even the US retail list of $49 is a bit overpriced, given the competition. You can buy a Teensy 3.0 from Paul for $19. http://www.pjrc.com/store/teensy3.html (I don't know what the pricing is on au.pjrc.com is, though, LOL!) I suspect though that once the official launch is over the original Mouser pricing for the Due of ~$36 will become more like the normal street price. So I think patience will be rewarded. Either that, or you will have to be willing to pay a premium for the privilege of being a pioneer (you know, one of the guys with the arrows sticking out of his back...)  smiley-mr-green

Yeah, but you'll have to get through the Arduino sniffer dogs at the airport. Maybe wrap them in bags of coke to put them off the scent?
