Not a bad idea...

Oh im sure it will, and i have seen it happen where companies change thier 
sampling requirements from time to time, most likely to weed out the 
non-legit samplers (im included and theres no point it lying about it... im 
a college student who cant really afford most of these parts).

  Plus, I'm making sure the prices are minimal

Wait, your not??? could have fooled me since you are asking 20 bucks a pop 
for the IGBTs that you have just said you got for free.  IT may be 
insignificant to a person like you who deals with high quantity orders 
seemingly on a day to day basis, but to most of us, what your doing is down 
right wrong.

I get that from
>selling 1,000 to 50,000+ components on a single p.o., not from 2 diodes.

I do appreciate what you are doing, but i cant help from voicing my opinion 
about this.  It would be different if you had bought these parts at 
discount and resold them, but you are selling samples.  As the "inventor" 
of the ISSTC, i guess this makes me feel a bit more emotional about this 
related issue.
