If you’re looking for a new Cricut deal but don’t want to pay for the main Maker 3, the brand’s entry-level machine, the Cricut Explore 3 is an excellent option. This cutting machine is a little less powerful than the Maker 3 but can use the new Smart Materials and is a more economical machine overall. Read our Cricut Explore 3 review for more details on what it can do.

In the US right now Cricut itself offers Cricut Explore 3 for $319.99 $279.99 (opens in a new tab) – a savings of $40.

One of my favorite machines among the new Cricut devices released this year is the Cricut Mug Press which allows you to make uniquely designed mugs – I love it. Read our Cricut Mug Press review to see why it’s so much fun.

Cricut EasyPress Mini is one of our favorite devices produced by the brand and now it’s reduced to Michaels. Not only can you save money, but the store has the new colorful Zen Blue model for sale. This tiny iron is excellent for heat press designs, but will prove invaluable to tailors and quilters who need to flatten seams.

If you’re not sure, read our Cricut EasyPress Mini review to see why we love it. Back? Then switch to Michaels and get the Cricut EasyPress Mini for $39 (opens in a new tab) – a modest $10 savings on a gadget every crafter needs. (This gadget retails at Cricut for $69.99, so it’s actually a better savings than it first appears.)

US retailer Michaels has the Cricut Explore Air 2 on offer in one of three colors – Mint, Boysenberry, and Peacock – which is unusual as even the official Cricut store no longer carries all three colors. If you’re looking to gift someone a Cricut machine and want a slightly unique edition, I recommend one of these (the peacock is a deep blue-green).

The new Cricut Maker 3 is a great home-made machine, the older model is still a great buy and now nearly half the price. Got a good deal on the original Cricut Maker Champagne, which is now £249.99 in Ryman’s Black Friday Sale (opens in a new tab). That’s a £50 saving on a machine that still does everything, apart from using Cricut’s new smart materials (I have one and it’s used regularly).

US readers, fear not, I have a deal with Cricut Maker for you too. The original Cricut Maker in White is now just $229 at Michaels (opens in a new tab)a savings of $170 off the MSRP of this fine craft machine.

US crafters are in luck, too, as the rarest pink-colored edition is now abridged at Cricut’s Official Store. You can now get Cricut Maker Rose for $399 $249 at Cricut (opens in a new tab).

If you’re looking for a Cricut machine but don’t want to pay for the latest cutting machine, then you can get a Cricut Explore Air 2 for $169 at Walmart (opens in a new tab) – a savings of $30 on this older model. Don’t let the fact that it’s older than the new Explore 3 put you off, as the Air 2 is still a capable machine (but it can’t use the new Cricut Smart Materials or Feed Roller).
