We’re big fans of the Raspberry Pi 3, with its new 64-bit processor and wireless capabilities. It’s arguably powerful enough to handle desktop computing for most people, and its small size and ease-of-use make it a great platform for countless fun maker projects., one of the largest electronics distributors in the world, agrees — so much so that they’re doing a crazy Pi 3 giveaway promotion for the next two days. Spend $100 on the site anytime from August 25th until August 26th, and they’ll automatically add your free Raspberry Pi 3 to the cart. No joke.

Arrow carries over a million items, so hitting that $100 mark shouldn’t be hard. This Weller soldering station is a good choice to get you right over the hump. This stepper motor leaves you just $10 shy of a free Pi 3. Four of these Neopixel string lights and you’re just about good to go. Or just buy three Raspberry Pi 3s and get your fourth one free. There’s plenty of makery goodness to browse through.

Make sure to watch their promo video to really get a sense of how excited about this they are, and let us know what you scoop up with your Pi in the comments below.

For a limited time only (12:01 a.m. MST 8/25/16 until 11:59 p.m. MST 8/26/16 — or while supplies last), you can score a FREE Raspberry Pi 3 with any purchase over $100.

Arrow wants to help engineers, makers, DIYers and inventors create their next project and the Raspberry Pi 3 is a perfect development platform to build on. The Pi 3 is the latest and greatest single-board computer from the Raspberry Pi Foundation. With a quad-core 1.2Ghz processor, a hefty graphics chip capable of streaming at 1080p, and on-board WiFi and Bluetooth LE, the Raspberry Pi 3 is equally at home acting as the brains behind your media center, as a standalone PC, or powering your next embedded design. So go ahead — throw $100 of sensors, cables or dev kits in your cart and enjoy the power of Pi — this time, it’s on us.

Order must total $100 after any discounts are applied to be eligible, not including shipping and tax.
