    Default What do you think of this deal?

    This was on Craigslist:

    I have a like new, rarely used cricut personal cutter (aka. baby bug) for sale. Comes with the original box, ac adaptor, mats and the plantin' schoolbook cartridge.
    She is asking $130.

    I'm not sure that we can afford that right now plus she is over and hour away which could be a problem.

    I also see that a lot of people are getting rid of their Sizzix machines. Does anyone have one of those?

    I think you can get a new Cricut (same one offered on Craigslist) on ebay for about that price, you'll have to research it.

    I have a Sizzix and was planning to sell it. I sold all the individual dies, but still have 2 complete alphabet sets. I don't know if I want to part w/ it, but as far as money goes and having the Cricut w/ so many carts as it is, I should just part w/ it.

    My only problem is that Ebay makes me really nervous. My Dad and Brother both lost a couple hundred dollars through bad deals

    My DH has sold cards on ebay but it used to make me nervous too. I think if you use PayPal to pay with it, you are safe. They work as a third party and will basically get your money back to you if there is a problem. Also, check the seller's feedback and # of items sold. Just a few hints.

    I do have a Sizzix, several alphabet sets and several cuttlebug alphabets sets. I really should part with them (or at least some of them). I just don't know how to let them go!!!!

    Don't buy it unless she has the warranty. Take my word for it. I'm going to end up paying just as much for mine as if I had waited until Black Friday at Walmart and I would have gotten the expression.

    I was just going to say that Erin had problems with Cricut not guaranteeing it off Ebay. But I bet it would be fine if you found one with a warranty! As far as the deal you found, I don't know what Sizzix machines are or how much they run, so I am clueless there.

    My DH got a bad deal on Ebay too, and Paypal was no help for him with his bad deal they claimed that because they were a third party they couldnt help him track whether the lady refunded his money or not, and she never gave him the product he bought. He wont let me sell anything on ebay either.

    Craigslist has been fine for me, but you have to ask alot of questions and see pics to see what you're getting. I agree that you'll probably get a better deal through a store though.

    Sizzix IMO is great for teachers since its usually one die per thing and they tend to be pretty bulky. We have one at school and the dies take up alot of space in this big ol honkin tower thing. At least the cuttle bug dies are slimmer.
