Re: Raspberry Pi Delivered in the US

Wed Apr 18, 2012 10:19 pm

Just got my Raspberry Pi delivered to me in Boston, Mass, came from RS UK via DHL, never got a tracking number and after paying for it last week, the E-mail said it would be shipped within 7 days and I would then get a tracking number, certainly not upset for 6 days later to have it handed to me with no update email or tracking number. So do I have the first one in the US?

THANKYOU RS and especially the Foundation.

I received mine in Wichita, KS from RS today as well, delivered by DHL without any tracking email.

I concur, thank you Foundation and RS!

I had also gotten mine ( CT, USA ). I had purchased mine through Newark.com. They had given me the UPS tracking number. I guess Newark was a better choice.

Edit : mine also didn"t require a signature .

Good news, everybody! /Farnsworth

Really glad to see they're starting to pitch up in the US. We'll be at Maker Faire Bay Area in May, too - hope to see some of you there!

Cheat the system much? I don't see how someone could have two unless they found a way to get around the rules of one per customer.

How much were you charged for shipping?

Since it came overseas, was there a large delivery charge?

I ordered the first day from Newark and had an early delivery date, but it keeps changing and is now showing the middle of August. :(

LOL. I got mine from Farnell (ordered 2/29) earlier this week. I would worry more about paying $22 in taxes for absolutely no reason and then getting no explanation after repeated emails than about getting your Pi late.

Not really cheating, 1 per customer from Farnell/Element 14 and another from RS.

(I registered with both, but only got the Farnell one, never heard from RS again after the original acknowledgement)
