a few cricut questions

i finally convinced DH to let me buy a cricut! Blum 3 i went and saw him this past weekend and i made him watch the infomercial and he said that it was awesome! (i tried telling him but since hes a man, he never listens :rolleyes:) so i want to get the create. im looking at them on ebay and im thinking i want to pay around $150. is that a good deal on them? the cricut website says they are $299. i just want to make sure im getting a good deal on one! oh and i totally blamed you ladies for wanting one so bad Wink

I am not sure about the Create, but $150 sounds good to me! The regular bug is more than that! Biggrin Hope you get it! KUP!

I think that is a good price, but I'm not positive. I'm trying to remember who it was, but someone on here had warrenty issues with hers after buying it from someone on ebay.
Here's a good website for cartridges and you can see their prices for machines:

Glad you got to see hubby and got approval for a cricut!

My sister has the Cricut machine and never uses it. I think I'm going to beg her to let me have it until she's ready to use it.

Have fun with yours!!

It was me who had warranty issues. Trust me. If I ever get mine fixed, I'm selling it on E-Bay again and I'm buying one from the store. Michaels has their create on sale for $200 right now. That's a decent price but Walmarts typical price is $180. Just do it from the store and that way you know it's covered.

I bought the expressions one on ebay for 250... which is a great deal since in store they are selling them for 399 and 499 and they only come with one cartridge, and the one I got came with two, brand new and everything.. Ebay is a good place to look, well at least for me it is..

$150 is a GREAT price for the Create. does it come with carts or mats or blades? Make sure you look at that too, because you will need that to start. I LOVE my Cricut create! IMO, it's the best of the three machines. My friend has the Expressions (which I love too) but it's too big for my house, so I love that the Create has all the functionality of the big one in the smaller size. YAY for DH letting you get one!

Okay just make sure that you keep all the papers that come with it and remember the seller in case you have problems.
