Does any one know if these go on sale at? Also what is the difference with the types? I really want one but 400.00 is a lot for a tool! I can only imagine the time it does save! Please let me know what you have done with yours!

I haven’t done anything with mine yet, simply because I haven’t gotten it yet. I had bought one on clearance then asked my fellow bees if it was a good deal.
They sent me to Ebay. I got the Expression (the bigger one) for $121 (plus shipping)!!! I am pretty excited. They also have alot of auctions with it coming with bundles, mine was just the machine, I think thats why I didn’t have a big fight for it, the ones with bundles included (ext cartridges, mats, tools, ect) went over $200 every time.
Good luck! I hate ebay because I want it for the first price I see it at, but I am glad I got the bigger one, I am hoping to figure out how to make my own pocket folds with it!

i make a lot of cards, tags, and boxes with mine. I have the small one – the Create. It cuts 6” x 12” maximum. I only paid $110 for it when it was on sale at Big Lots.
I love using it, but the cartridges are super expensive. Get the program Sure Cuts A Lot instead of cartridges.
If i had to do it over I’d get the bigger 12” machine. It would cut the boxes and envelopes at a more reasonable size. My smaller machine cuts things too small right now.

@amariem25- the one at biglots is what started my search. I actually bought it from Biglots last week, then did my research and started looking on ebay. The create is still sitting here taunting me becuase I have not returned it yet. You saying you wish you had the bigger one really makes me feel better about spending the extra $$.

@Anna7548: I got my expression on ebay with 2 cartridges, 2 mats, and a toolkid for $201 (including shipping). The key to the bundles is looking at auctions that will end during off hours (like during the work day) and don’t bid at all until the very end. This way you’ll probably lose a few, but its the best way to get a really good deal. I get cut throat during ebay auctions, haha.

They go on sale a lot actually. I see them on sale all the time at Joanns and Michaels. The other place that they are usually cheaper is at walmart. Ebay is also a realy good place to get a great deal on them! I ended up getting one a few months a go from Joanns for around $200 for the expression.
