I originally deleted this from my email, however I received an add in my inbox that I thought I would mention.
At Cricut.com today only (ends at midnight) regular Cricut Expression is $99
The E2 is $199 and the Pink Regular Expression is also $199.
Hope this helps for those of you who have one of the machines on your wish list.
BTW...I have both the regular and the E2. Although the E2 is what is currently set out for the last 2 years. I really miss the simplicity of the Regular one. My husband REALLY sacrificed to get me the E2 the day it was release on HSN and I do not want to hurt his feelings. I do not use it enough to ALWAYS REMEMBER what all the ICONS are on the screen so I spend a great deal of time always looking up the icons glossary. I do find that because of this frustration, I do use my gypsy much more.
