Amazon is now offering the Cricut Maker craft cutting machine for $299 shipped in all colorways. Also matched directly from Cricut. Regularly up to $369, today’s deal is about $70 in savings and the lowest total we can find. It is also a new Amazon all-time low. This is great way to take your home craft/DIY game up a notch whether it’s “paper crafts, iron ons, and vinyl decals” or “sewing projects, leather crafts, and balsa models.” The free app allows users to layout design projects on a mobile device or computer as well as providing access to “hundreds of sewing projects.” It sports a cradle and an extra USB charging port for your mobile device as well. Rated 4+ stars from over 2,300 Amazon customers. More details below.
While not quite as robust and limited in scope by comparison to today’s lead deal, the Cricut Joy Machine is worth a closer look. This smaller and more compact alternative comes in at $120 less than the Maker model above and still carries solid reviews. Again, it’s not quite as robust and versatile with the kind of projects it’s capable of, but it is a great little “cutting, writing, and label making machine” nonetheless.
