I just purchased mine from http://www.cricut-craftsdirect.com/servlet/the-Machines/Categories
I purchased it and a cartridge last night and they shipped them out today, so I should have them by the end of next week. I am so excited. I have been waiting forever to get one. I got the Infomercial Bundle one that comes with two cartridges. The only difference that I can see from the infomercial is that this one doesn’t come with the etching stuff, which I don’t really need.
Their prices are a lot less than in the stores and their cartridges are a lot less too. They have a new cartridge that is called Tie The Knot that does tags, invitations, Monograms, and some other things. I got that too.
They have several different Cricuts to choose from.

LOL I just returned mine when I realized that I wouldn’t really use it for the amount it cost. I was SO in love with the idea, and I’m jealous of people who craft enough to get good use out of it!

I love my Cricut. I got mine on Black Friday for a lot LESS than they are orginally.
My mom got my the wedding cartidge, though I haven’t been able to use it yet. It seems to have a lot of shapes that I will be using for our wedding album.
I would recommend getting Sure Cuts A lot. It’s a program where you can design your own thing and has a whole lot of different fonts. It’s a lot better than having to buy a ton of cartridges to do different fonts and templates. There are quite a few blogs that have templates that you can download for free and use with the program. I found snowman one and download it for our Christmas cards.
Blogs like this http://thefrugalcrafter.wordpress.com/ usually have different templates for almost anything!
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!

Sorry you had to return yours KM. I craft a lot, so I am sure I will get a lot of use from it, plus I am getting 3 full cartridges. Two that come with the machine and then the extra Tie The Knot one.
I do have teh Sure Cuts A lot site bookmarked florida. And I thank you for the frugal crafter one.
I am hoping to love it as much as you do. I am sure it will take me a bit of time to figure it out though.
