Seeedstudio’s 3-Year Anniversary Happy Hour (upcoming event)



Seeedstudio turns 3 years old next month, and because this is such a special event we’ve decide to launch our “Happy Hour” to celebrate with all our fans out there. What this means is that for couple hours every day from July 6th to July 8th, some of our featured products will be discounted at up to 50%! Yes, it’s our birthday but we’re ready to offer you presents!


Here we can point out which products will participate in this celebration in advance. Top-sell Seeedstudio products such as DSO Quad, DSO Nano v2, Seeeduino v2.21 (Atmega 328P), Arduino Sidekick Basic Kit and Grove – Starter Bundle will definitely join into the party. Moreover, some other interesting stuff will come along with them. If you got any suggestion about the discounted product list, please feel free to leave a comment below or tweet to inform us.




What times we’ll offer them? Could be any time span from July 6th to July 8th, and we will tweet the exact message that day so please follow us on Twitter at to find out. Don’t miss the daily tweet because the time of Happy Hour will change every day and you’ll have only couple hours to get the discounted products!


Start following us today and get yourself ready for our Happy Hour!




1. How can I participate? What do I have to do?

This is not a contest! You don’t need to answer questions or enter into lottery to get discounts. Everybody can enjoy the reduction once he/she sees the Happy Hour tweet and time hasn’t run out yet.


2. Is there a limit of discounted products you’ll deliver?

Yes, we will set a limit of each discounted product (from 20 to 50 units). Either the quota sold out or the time runs out, the discount for that product gone. Just be quick!


3. Why don’t you settle down the time of the Happy Hour?

We’ll change the time of the Happy Hour every day is for everybody in the world to have an equal chance to take advantage of it!


4. Is Twitter the only way to know? Is there anywhere else I can know about the list of discounted products of the day and when the Happy Hour start?

We’ll only communicate the availability on Twitter. This is because it allows for instant communication with our fans and the Happy Hour only last couple hours. We may post the news on the Blog or somewhere else but we can’t guarantee the Happy Hour will still be running when you see it.


5. I don’t have a Twitter account, what should I do?

We strongly suggest you to create one, and it takes only a few seconds from Once you’re done and connected, go to and click on “Follow”. You will then receive all our Tweets on the “Home” page of your Twitter account.

  1. Dominik,

    There is no chance because the sale is to get users for seeedstudio and not to recognize the users who found or stuck with seeedstudio.


  2. So you said, that there is a equal chance for everybody around the world to get the devices. I’m living in germany and there was no chance to get the DSO Quad. 🙁

    we already connected the Twitter with FB, the info will be synchronized automatically:)

    Can you combine multiple discounted products? I perhaps want to order multiple items, can you put them in your basket and checkout with all items? Or have the items to be ordered at once?

    basically, you can purchase whatever you want as long as the time hasn’t run out and the products haven’t sold out. but can’t make sure the combination you want will be released at the same time.

  6. Thanks for your suggestions, Chuckt.

    We know that our documentation is not as good as hobbyists expect. And we are trying to make intuitive documentation as we are adopting freelancers to write docs for us and we encourage more of our customers to help us with whatever they can.


  7. The problems will be server availability because there will be more people than the server will be able to accomodate and it won’t matter if you upgrade your servers.

    I don’t see a need for Twitter so I’m not going to set up an account for their web server that won’t be able to handle the demand. The idea of sitting at my computer for three hours hitting ‘submit’ over and over again is not appealing to me so my friends at Seeedstudio will lose some of my business to someone else. I’ll be buying from another vendor on those days.

    If you want me to buy a product from Seeed, make me a deal that is attainable and easy.

    You can tweet all you want to gain followers. I’ve already talked to my relatives and friends. They’re not into electronics so unless you are nice to people and make products that appeal to the average consumer, you aren’t going to make hobbyists out of them. You can tweet all you want but it takes probably two years of learning to get the average person to know enough about electronics to do anything before they can buy some of your products. All you are going to do is fish from the same pond as everyone else while I’d rather go in the back yard and play T Ball with my son than reading what people tweet about what they had for breakfast.

    You want people to buy more products? Have a centralized location of tutorials teaching people how to do stuff so they can actually buy your products. Nobody wants to teach because they aren’t teachers and all they want to do is tell non electronic students to read the manual that was written for engineers instead of normal people like me. If I gave the average person on the street one of your manuals and asked them to explain it, they wouldn’t have a clue.

    Do you want to sell me something? Offer me a deal I can attain. I’m interested in the Maple Leaf and projects that involve the Maple. If you don’t want to sell to me then that is fine. Keep advertising on Twitter.

    If the “EasyDriver stepper motor driver V4.4” could be added to the list of promotional items, it would be great, thanks
