Jo-Ann Fabrics and Wal-Mart slash prices on Cricut paper cutters
Rejoice, scrapbookers! Cricut scrapbooking machines were big sellers on Black Friday last year. Turns out, you can get just as good a deal this year. Jo-Ann Fabrics and Walmart are offering unbeatable prices on two Cricut models.
Cutting a deal on a Cricut
Jo-Ann Fabrics is offering a doorbuster deal on the Cricut Expression Personal Electronic Cutter. This machine usually goes for $399, but it's on sale for $199. That’s a $200 savings for consumers who are able to beat the crowds. We took a look at reviews and found they're just as good as the prices. Over 40 owners review the Cricut Expression at Amazon.com, where it earns a solid four-star rating. The majority of users rave about the machine, praising its efficiency, precise cutting, and versatility with various designs and fabrics. Scrapbook.com, a website for scrapbooking enthusiasts, has over 70 reviews of the Expression. There, the machine receives a perfect five-star rating and users love it.
Also available at Jo-Ann Fabrics is the smaller, less expensive Cricut Personal Electronic Cutter, offered as a Saturday doorbuster for $69.99 (reg. $199.99). We found very positive feedback for the Cricut Personal Electronic Cutter on Viewpoints.com and Amazon.com, where it earns an average score of 4.5 stars. Owners say it's easy-to-use and works just as well as the larger, more expensive Circuit Expression.
Wal-Mart is also offering the Cricut Personal Electronic Cutter at an even lower price: $185 with a Cricut Classic Font cartridge included as a free bonus. Consumers should consider their color preference: The Cricut Personal Electronic Cutter is available in aqua, plum, green or canary at Wal-Mart. Although Jo-Ann Fabrics doesn’t specify the color choices available, the machine featured in their circular is white.
