There isa deal on from Amazon , Cricut Expression for 297.47 AND free shipping. I think this is probably the best deal right now. It includes the usual Cricut Cartridge: Plantin Schoolbook andCricut Accent Essentials shape cartridge. What makes this deal hot is the price and the free shipping and Amazon’s excellent return policy.
So far the best price I have seen for Cricut Expression from Cricut Direct at their Amazon store.. The price includes the usual 2 free cartridges, Cricut Cartridge: Plantin Schoolbook and Shape cartridge . The shipping cost is not bad- $21.00.
AC Moore craft stores also have a pretty good deal onm right now, http://www.acmoore.com/p-59704-cricut-expression-cutting-machine-bundle.aspx 329.00 and FOUR cartridges (Plantin SchoolBook, Accent Essentials, Stretch Your Imagination and Paper Pups) also some inks.
Another good deal for those upgrading is a Cricut it Expression without any cartridges. Halllmark Scrapbook sells them for 209.99 shipping included ( some restrcitions) I did notice all sales were final tho- so not sure if that bodes well or not.
If you see a good deal or have a craft site and have a promotion on Cricut Machine ( or any other for that matter!) please post below!
