Psssss...

Don't tell anyone that I told you but I just heard that Provocraft is releasing (again through Walmart) 20 new Lite cartridges in November (just in time for Black Friday).  =)

I also heard that the Lite cartridges will always belong to Walmart exclusively (not counting PC themselves) so that means the price 'is what it is' and won't be going down due to competition. This stipulation was the only way Walmart would play with PC. =(

Hopefully they will have them on sale for Black Friday for less than the regular $39.98. Hopefully...

  1. Oh no - more temptation for me! I have 4 WMs near me and NONE of them sell the cartridges - I can only get them when I visit my parents who live in another state !

  2. My local Walmart doesn't carry them. Boo-hoo.

  3. My Walmart carries them, but I refuse to pay $40 for half of a cartridge. If they go on sale Black Friday I will get several though.

  4. I agree with Sole. I haven't paid $40 for "half a cartridge." Lots of places online have full cartridges for less than that. You get more with the Lite cartridges that have fonts, but I don't need fonts because I have SCAL.
    It'll be fun to see what they come up with!

  5. In total agreement with refusing to pay $40 for a Lite cartridge. They are not flying off the shelves at our local WalMart, just collecting dust. Provocraft should of realized that most Cricut users are bargain shoppers!

  6. My Walmart (in Hawaii) sells them for $44. Usually the more popular ones sell out.

  8. Curious to see what these carts will be. Thanks for posting the info. The Lites are not really "half" a cartridge....the ones I got have lots of details. I did get a few that I really liked and use them often. I'm not made of money, I just buy what I like and $40.00 is not a bad price...got the Cricut when it first came out and $40.00 for a cart was unheard of...infact, a sale was $65.00 or more. There are lots of other carts I don't need, so I got the Lites instead.
