I thought they weren't allowed to advertise prices lower than like $199. Do you think they are clearing out stock to prepare for a new and improved model?

I hope the cartridges are on sale. I just got back from Joann's and they had coupons laying on the table as you walked in. As usual it said that you were unable to use it for the Cricut personal cutter, BUT then it said you couldn't use it for the Cricut "font" cartridges. So I got one of the shape cartridges for 40% off. Got it for $39. They tried to tell me no, but I asked the manager how she interpreted the verbiage and showed her a font cartridge (labeled as such) and the shape cartridge, also labeled. She kept staring at the ad over and over and finally said do it. It ends today, darn!

I just got home with my new cricut. The cartridges are not on sale at Michaels and you can not use the coupons for the cartridges. I also heard that the reason the cricut is on sale for a great price is because they are coming out with a 12 x 12 cricut machine??? Who knows, but I got mine. Thanks for your comments. Jennifer

Talking Call me a lemming

I had been bouncing back & forth about getting a Cricut. When I saw the ad this morning, I decided that I had to have one. It's a shame you can't use the coupons for the cartridges (it is clearly on the coupons that I have that they can't be used for the machine or cartridges.) I got the machine and the tags, bags, boxes, & more cartridge. I just hope that if they come out with a 12x12, that you can use the same cartridges.

I got one too! The lady who checked me out at Michaels laughed at me, because I was so excited! I told myself that if they had one in the store, it was a message that I was supposed to buy it. They only had five, and I got one!! Now if my raging headache would just go away so I could concentrate on how to work it

In reference to cartridges, I was talking to a lady while in Michaels and she said they are cheaper at Hobby Lobby and Joanns and thanks to the help of dyannzstampscrap reading the fine print of the Joanns coupon, I will head there this week to get a non-font cartridge

After getting mine this morning I went on ebay and looked for cartridges and I saw the new Disney one. It looks pretty cute, but there are a ton of cartridges that are cheaper on ebay than at Mikes or JA's.

Cricut is coming out with a new model and it is called Cricut Expressions. It will cost 349.99 and it will allow 12x12 paper plus it will have NEW cartridges however you can use the old ones with it as well. That is probably why they are getting rid of it to make room for the new model. It's coming out in June. Here is the announcement I saw online:

According to Cricut's website, the new Cricut is going to be $499. I just recently bought my Cricut at Walmart and love it! I bought a couple of days before they released the news of the new Cricut and had a hard time deciding if I wanted to return it and wait for the new one. I'm glad I kept it! Couldn't scrap without it!

I've also bought a few cartridges there for $59 each. I have seen them go as low as $35-40 on Ebay and a couple of other sites on the net.

I'm jsut wondering- has anyone tried to get Walmart to price match this offer? I'm not a frequent of a Wal-mart shopper, but I know sometimes on the day after Thanksgiving we go there, instead of running around to 5 different stores, because they will match all the sale prices. I thought maybe if your Michael's was out, this would be a place to go....

Thought I'd add to my above post - I live in Michigan. I wonder if different Walmarts have different policies. Our Michaels was all out of Cricuts so I headed to Walmart and feel I got lucky by getting Michaels sale price.

Greetings - They are coming out with a 12x12 cricut but thankfully the same cartridges will work. If you go to the provo craft website you can see the new cricut machine (coming in may I think) and the new cartridges (including Disney)!

Default Mike's is out of stock buy Joann is good to go

Hola Everyone... Well - I just heard the news today about the Cricut being $139.99 so I called approx 26 Mike's and non had the machine in stock. Everyone was sold out. I was not going to let this stop me.. So, I called aJoanne Superstore and asked if they honor Mike's sale and they said YES!!! .. Yahoo!!! they said YES!! amazing... So, me and my husband went and got this little machine. While at the checkout counter my husband pulls out the $$ and tells me that it's my anniversary present. I was doubly happy!!.. I have been playing with my new toy all day. I'm going to buy some catridges on Saturday because they are for $64.99 at Joanne's.
Thanks for reading...

Default joanns and cricut

Just wanted to let you all know that Joanns price matches the ads....so I sent my DH to ac moore in the morning to get the cricut for me for my birthday 4/8 he was in line when I received another email from acmoore saying there was an error in the previous ad stating the 139 price, and said lowest price at each store..but my DH had the ad and they honered it...and because they have the cartridges for 50% off I took the ad to joanns and got the cartridges for 32.50 each. They have lowered the price to 64.99 because they were not selling. Ac and Michaels are 84.99 so I had to go and get 4. Now I want to sit and play..hope I will use it now that I have it.
Thanks to all of you who have me hooked...atc gun too..

FYI - I've gotten a couple of cartridges from Hobby Lobby's website www.craftsetc.com for $59.00 - their regular, everyday price. If you watch, they have free shipping about once a month, too.

A little old news.... but Michaels has 6 cartridges on sale for $39.99 this week. I talked with some employees who said Michaels is clearing out some of the older Cricut products to make room for new Michaels exclusive products. They are suppose to be getting a new machine bundle that has the same machine with a different cartridge. Plus new cartridges you can only get at Michaels.

Here's the ones that are on sale:
Stamped
Mini Monograms
Celebrations
Animal Kingdom
Tags, Bags, Boxes and More
Christmas Cheer

Default Cricut

I talked to Provocraft they make the Cricut today and I also heard those same rumors about clearing out the old ones and the bundle thing they told me that was rumors and they dont know how they got started the old cartridges will be interchangeable with the new machine and the new machine will also have a way of hooking it up to the internet for even more choices if you have noticed on the old machine there is a place for a USB cable. The stores are just putting them on sale for new stock and the rumors make them sell out.
