  1. Heads up.
    Mouser are now advertising free Fedex or UPS delivery for orders over
    AU$250. Not bad.

    Pity that the $AUS pricing for the *free* delivery is twice that of the
    $US pricing for the items I checked.

    For example the PXF2123 RTC clock on the home page:

    $AUD - $2.52 (Free Delivery)
    $UD - $1.26

    Very poor exchange rate.

    that's 50 cents!!!
    current exchange rate is .7258
    I plug the new one into my cart every day.

    are you sure?
    sounds like robbery to me, if this is the case.

    Cheers Don...

    I guess that is how they can afford to pay the import taxes and *free*
    delivery. Easy to check, as the Mouser pages I looked at all had options
    to change from $US to $AUD.

    Still cheaper for me to pay in $US and use Fedex, especially for high
    value orders. Mouser are pretty good for consolidating orders for us to
    save freight.

  5. Hey, when did Mouser add an AUD option? Never noticed that button up the top
    before!
    I've always bought in USD.
    Sure enough, the exchange rate is poor, I got US$4.49 / AU$8.98 for the
    first chip I tried. Very poor rate indeed.
    I wonder if you still get the free postage if you buy in USD?

    BTW, Mouser have had a fixed US$30 Fedex fee to Australia for some time now,
    same price as their Postal option!

  8. Yes, I've seen that before, but when I checked some prices they were much
    more expensive. Probably the same as this new AUD Mouser pricing.

    Dave.
