Amazon has the Cricut Expression 290300 on sale for $199 ( it was $299) it will ship free with Super Saver shipping or Amazon Prime/Mom.
Last year I stood in line a Michael’s hoping to get one for $189. I didn’t get it. That being said I would have gladly paid $10 more to get it for sure and not waste my time!
This would be a SWEET gift to get on Christmas!
