So, "they" jumped the price from US$99 to US$160 so that "they" could then offer a US$30 discount. Absolutely magnanimous!

Just to add, I was able to request a quote for a SAMB11 xplained pro and ATREB233 x-pro with my MicrochipDirect sales rep and got about 22% off. Not a bad deal at all. It took about 6 days to get the quote back, but once I placed the order, I received the items in 2 days. (standard shipping US). To be honest, if I would have ordered through digi-key, I would have paid 22% more and probably would have received it in the same time frame, give or take a day.

 

I will order from them again.
