With 30% off, that sounds like a great price. But what does it cut that a Cuttlebug doesn't? I've never considered getting a Big Shot but eventually my little green bug will wear out, though I've had it since it first came out and all I've replaced were the thin plates. Snapped one when I used an incorrect sandwich. Been thinking of getting the extended parts. I don't have too many long dies though so it seems like an extravagance.
