This offer came to us through some back road channels but we North Americans Love it! We tend to be all about bigger is better and more sensors is more power when your creating robots.
I am now regretting that I used my Christamas money EARLY so I probably cant do this.
I never did recieve my free batteries from the first order anyways... oh well, I also spent far to much for the Canadain (over)priced Rechargable NXT education battery.

Quantities are limited so act now! 5,000 is not a lot for the entire nation. Go to the website and print off your forms - maybe even courier them. Last day to apply (and they may already be sold out) is January 16th (but purchase must be in December).

I wonder if the sensors will be any different (have a lighting bolt or energizer bunny on them) that might be a neat bonus for decoration or sensor labeling.

There is ALSO a 1 of 10 give away of NXT sets by Energizer due by Jan 19th 2007 for Americans only :(
