National Semi makes you pay postage etc if you dont use a business email address with them. A university or college email address may also avoid the fees.

As above. If you dont use a business email account, they will charge you fees. End of story.

If onsemi havnt stated anywhere prior to the order that you have to pay shipping, ask them where its stated on your bill. If they cant provide you with a copy of a bill that you have recieved prior to the claim stating shipping tax applies, or that they can point out its stated othervise....id simply send them a fax telling them that they are not entitled to the amount, and that the bill will be ignored if they dont prove you mistaken.

Im quite sure that they dont even bother responding, and if they do....you know where you stand.

I dont know about the states, but here it have to be stated loud and clear what people are to be billed.....PRIOR to goods being shipped.

All said.....dont get me wrong, if people order samples for their private use, i think its reasonable to pay at least shipping. If people order samples for their private use and expect to build anything for free, it will kill the sample system, and id personally be sad to see that happen.

I believe this topic have been up on this forum before, and the conclusion back then was that samples for private use is not acceptable, unless there is no way to buy the ithems(pre runs or the like).

It happens quite rare that either of the syndicate(farnell, rs components, etc.) cant supply a specific part.

Default I tried it with NS for some LM3875's

it went like this
(some 6 weeks ago)
on their website I went to the sample section after filling out some docs, it directed me to some dealers and at the end is came out more expensive than buying them from a surplus outlet, and there was hardly any difference buying them from digi etc.. in regular sale.

That was that as far as 'free' was concerned, and I thought that when i came here, about 4 years ago, that this was the land of 'the free' ???!!!!
