    Default cricut?

    Anyone know any good deals or places to buy them?

    I took DH to Michels yesterday and showed him one. While he thought it was neat he was not overly impressed. But then 2 ladies in the store over heard us talking about it and started telling us all about it and the things they have done with it. After that he went and talked to the girl that worked in the scrapbook section of the store and she told us more about it but that it was cheaper at Walmart. Michel's had the big one on sale yesterday with 2 catrages for $300. Walmart had regular price big one with 1 cartrage for 289. Michels had the small one regular price for 200 and Walmart had it for 189.

    Do you think the bigger one is worth the extra? After we pay off our bills if we have money left DH said I can get one without tax return. We would even get it on line if after shipping it was cheeper. Has anyone ever gotten it right from the cricut site?

    Where did you get yours?
    What modle is it?
    How much was it?

    I've bought both the smaller machine (that I sold) and my Cricut Create from Michael's during Black Friday sales. So I really don't know which place would be better, but I know COSTCO had a pretty good sale going on not so long ago that someone posted.

    I have the Cricut Create. (the smaller size, but functions of the larger one) LOVE it!!!!

    I bought mine from Wal-Mart at $189, so I am not much help. I think custom crops usually sells them for a decent price.

    I just got one off of ebay for $134. It is just the smaller one but it is brand new. I really would like to have the expressions or the create, because of the smaller sizes it can do, but this will have to do for now. I should be getting it on monday.

    I would definitely go the Create or Expressions route. As far as pricing goes, I would go to the Cricut.com website. They have lots of advice on the message board as to where you can get the best price. Also, there are a lot of people that can give you feedback as to the uses to see what you would use it for. Using the website, I don't pay more than $30 for a cartridge so it's definitely a useful resource.

    I got the regular cricut from CustomCrops.com for $150 last year. The usually have a good price on it, and when they have a sale, they sometimes mark it down.

    How much was it? $222 w/o any cartridges. I bought separate cartridges from eBay for about $30-40.

    All three of the machines can cut vinyl and do glass etching. The glass etching is simply taking the negative space from your vinyl cuts and using Armour Etch (or something similar) to burn the image into the glass. I did vinyl on my small bug, as well as my Cricut create. I just ordered some Armour Etch and will do my first glass etching soon.
