Have you ever wondered “ Do we get anything free in India ” Let see Water, Air.............what else........ nothing else we can think of

But for the Second time in India Robosoft Systems presents “Freebie Hours”
Yes you heard it right we are giving Rs 5 Lakhs/- worth FReeeeeeeeeeeee................

On the 15th of January, 2011 from 09:00 am to 9:00 pm (or when it hits Rs 5 lakhs /- whichever comes first)

Shocked!!!??...... There is no catch people!! But a few terms and conditions... Read On:-

Max Rs 500 /- free per person per address ( We want everyone to get a chance, so please pay fair)
You will have to bear shipping charges for the order
You will get to place only one order on free day so spend it wisely!
There is no minimum or maximum purchase limit. You can buy for more than Rs 500/- too, the balance will be charged.
Payment mode by credit card / Debit Card only. If you don’t have one, then beg, borrow or steal but keep one on you on Free Day!
Free day doesn’t apply to our distributors, sorry!!
Every order isn’t going to be shipped on free day – we only have that many hands on board this ship to process the barrage on orders on Free Day...We’ll try and send it asap.

Why are we doing this??

There are lots of technical festivals coming up – you need to get your bots ready...come splurge for free!
Final year projects are around the corner and we wanted to give you a helping robotic hand.
Robotics, according to us will be the next technological hurricane hitting our shores... We want to gear up the youth for robotics.
Freebie Hours will possibly create a hailstorm of site traffic, the likes of which our servers have not seen
Finally we turn 3 years old! Robosoft Systems is now over 15 employees and we are foraying into Retail DIY Kits. We'd like to celebrate our Birthday & Sucess with a party.

I had thought of announcing this but Rs 500 is too less for anything ... also with Rs 200 shipping is the most expensive shipping compared to any other online shops , also 500 will not buy anything worth while ... other than a few basic sensors
- This was my last years experience ...

Maybe make it Rs 2500+ then itll be something ...

Hey Vikas,

I want to point out that INR 750 is the figure if you buy kits and INR 500 without kits. The cumulative figure is INR 5 lakh which is quite a high figure for free goods given by an Indian startup. Saying that I understand your concern - you are a seasoned enthusiast and will prefer more than basic sensors. The whole objective of freebie hours is to increase the number of robotic hobbyists in our country. These promotional offers induce more people to pursue robotics as a serious hobby by helping them take the first bite.

Shipping of INR 200 also includes handling, processing of payment etc and is quite a standard rate compared to most robotics stores in India.

And lastly, about increasing the free amount to INR 2500, we dream of doing that soon and dream of the day when our servers crash on freebie hours!

Cheers mate,
Team Robosoft
