    Default Cricut machine??

    Has anyone ordered it online???

    Specifically from this site www.customcrops.com. I am looking into getting a Cricut machine and the prices are amazing to what micheals wants for their cricut machines.. The Expression one is 499.99 without tax.. so this would be a major money saver.. Also have any of you ever ordered cartridges from this site?

    Have any of you bought cartridges off ebay?

    Thanks for any help?

    I did not order from that site, but my DH got my cricut expression from Joanns website for a LOT less than what it was selling for at Michaels. There were no problems ordering and the shipping was minimal and it came unharmed.

    I have yet to buy any cartridges, but am an avid ebayer, so I wouldn't hesitate to buy them there. GL S.

    Mine came from Ebay and it was brand new. Almost all my carts are from ebay as well brand new in packaging.

    I know Charys orders carts from there, and so have I. I'm in the middle of receiving an order, but I'm not sure if I'd recommend them. The prices are excellent, but they don't seem to keep you informed. I ordered 3 cartridges and the toolkit on Dec. 29th, it was a week before I heard anything about my order shipping. (I understand the holidays are busy, but send a message saying due to the holidays no orders are being processed). My order came with a sticker from the P.O. saying damaged packaging prior to receiving. I am missing one cart that was supposed to be there (one is on back order). I talked to my p.o. and the emailed the company (on Friday) and haven't heard anything...

    I have ordered from them, and never had a problem. I have heard a few complaints lately about not getting stuff in time. I don't know though.

    Custom crops does offer great deals. There seems to be a discrepancy between ordering from their website and their ebay store. Most people like them but also the biggest complaint is their shipping and notification policies. If you need something by a certain time, I wouldn't suggest ordering. If you can wait and you save a bundle, you will eventually get it. As far as the machine, I really would look on ebay. The smaller machines are going for around $100 and there have been several deals on the Expression because it was featured in so many Black Friday ads.

    I got my machine (the regular Cricut) and almost all my cartridges from there. Can't beat the price. My Mom and DH have gotten me cart's as gifts from there as well.

    I have never had a problem with Custom Crops and won't order carts anywhere else. Just my opinion.
