Default Onsemi Samples

Does Onsemi charge shipping to the US, or only to Canada?

Hi,
I ordered 10 different samples in quantities of 5 and they came in 10 separate boxes.
The return for ONsemi is so low I am too embarassed to order more.
Does anyone know if ONsemi has a system to charge a fair price to us DIYers?

Then we could all go there with a clear conscience

Yes, I was amazed to see my order filled and shipped in quite the timely matter as well. Even though these chips I ordered will find themselves in my diy project I couldn’t help to think how long could this go on? ONsemi obviously is a large Corp. that offers samples to anyone that could use and evaluate with the belief that their product and ‘perception’ will benefit. I believe the ‘diy-ers’ do fall in this category of samples, I mean how many of us are instructors and engineers and the projects that are built will be explained or shared via the web, classroom, BOM etc. The problem is when you start seeing chips on EBay or someone taking advantage of a good thing for their own gain. In my opinion, ONsemi is probably to big of a corporation to tailor its sample policy, after all what prevents the person who is taking advantage of a good thing to say he is what they are looking for.

I was thinking maybe a small percentage of the samples retail value could go to diyaudio as a donation but I’m not sure that the Mods want to be connected in this way.

are you sure it doesnt depend on your email address?
National for example will charge people from hotmail, yahoo and major ISP shipping, but if you have an email from a small organisation, then it is free.

it was funny the first time i ordered some samples with my sympatico address, a page came up that said "are you sure you do not have an email adress that is not major ISP blah blah, or you will have to pay shipping" or some such thing.
So i changed it to my work one and it was good

maybe onsemi has the same policy but doesnt tell you.

When did you order?

I've tried free ones, my ISP, my school, etc. and none work. This has just recently happened (couple months ago).
