Adafruit Now Accepting Payments in Gold-Pressed Latinum
Want to get a Minty Boost to charge your phaser, but don’t have any 21st-century Hyoo-mon money? No worries! We’re happy to announce that Adafruit is now accepting Gold-Pressed Latinum at checkout.
Gold-Pressed Latinum is the favored currency throughout the Alpha Quadrant, because unlike other ‘precious’ metals, Latinum cannot be replicated. That means it holds its value, and is a good investment.
We’ve had several requests to implement this feature, and we’re glad to do it. Because a happy customer is a good customer. And, to quote Rule of Acquisition #57:
“Good customers are as rare as latinum—treasure them.”
p.s. no refunds.
