Massive price hike? | Digi-Key

A project log for MiniSam-Zero

Tiny sameD09 dev board. (Zero has nothing to do with arduino, the name allows other boards in this line. namely -One, & -Two coming later.)

It would seem someone has added an extra digit to the price of the samd09 chip.. it's now priced on Digi-key for $12.7 per quantities of 1... I bought less than a week ago at $1.27 per quantities of 1.

I tried talking to customer service about it but all they said was, it was a price hike due to manufacturer supply..

On the other hand Mouser still has them in stock for $1.22 per quantities of 1.

I'm a little confused, not mad, just confused. I hope its a glitch.

Notice anything funny?

My last purchase less than a week ago..

and currently Mouser pricing..

There in my cart..

anyway, I know this happens sometimes so don't troll my comments section, I just thought the price difference between the two was a little funny.

They were however nice enough to give me a quote that last for 13 days if I wanted to buy my kits again. I just may as the pricing is the same on mouser..

That's what they listed for digikey.  So there is a typo for QTY 1.

1 $17.8600
10 $1.5070
25 $1.3604
100 $1.1900

Everyone else is around the $1 range.

20 sounds quite much, the other hand I do also have only ~20 of 50 CH340s left.
