Looking for Cricut Maker deals? I’m not surprised! The Cricut Maker is known as the “insanely easy” smart cutting machine that “changes everything.”
The Cricut Maker is becoming more and more popular, especially as the prices seem to go down on a regular basis! I currently have a Cricut Explore Air 2 and I think it’s amazing. You can read my Cricut Explore Air 2 review to see all that I love about it.
The Maker wasn’t available when I got my own Explore Air 2, and I was so envious when the newest machine was released and I saw all the features the Maker offered.

Cricut Maker Bundle Deals
Why buy a Cricut Maker Bundle instead of just a Cricut Maker on its own? If you’re already buying a Cricut Maker, you’re going to get an incredible deal on materials accessories and/or tools if you buy a Cricut Maker bundle from Cricut.com.
Note, this only applies to the Maker bundle deals direct from Cricut.com. Read below to see why I caution you against buying a Cricut Maker bundle from Amazon.
The Cricut Maker’s regular price is $399. It’s currently on sale for $349. It’s pretty easy to see the significant savings in the bundles when you compare the price of the bundle to the machine by itself.
The best thing about the Cricut Maker bundles right from Cricut.com is that there are three different bundles designed for three different shoppers:
- The Cricut Maker + Essentials Bundle is made for the maker who needs basic supplies to get started crafting.
- The Cricut Maker + Everything Materials Bundle is great for the crafter who already has some Cricut tools and needs more crafty materials to make more things.
- The Cricut Maker and Machine Tote Bundle is for the crafter that’s prepared with tools and materials who needs safe storage for her cutting machine.
I also love that just about every Cricut Maker Bundle deal still lets you choose the color of your machine. The Cricut Maker and Machine Tote Bundle is only available in three colors, but the other two bundles give you your choice of colors!

Cricut Maker and Machine Tote Bundle Deals
The Cricut Maker and Machine Tote Bundle is priced at $499.99. That’s 10% off the list price of the items in the bundle.
The Cricut Maker and Machine Tote Bundle is the most simple Cricut Maker bundle available. In all honesty, this Cricut bundle is not a deal compared to the other two bundles described before this one. Why?
The Cricut Maker Machine by itseslf has a regular price of $400, but it’s currently on sale for $350. The Machine Tote by itself is $149.99. That means there really isn’t a bundle discount on this one.
Cricut Maker Deals: The Best Price for the Machine
If you’re not looking for a Cricut Maker bundle, then shopping for just a Cricut Maker deal is pretty simple!
I’ve been watching and sharing prices on various Cricut machines for a few years, and I’ve noticed something pretty great about the pricing. The prices for machines on Cricut.com consistently either match or beat the prices for Cricut machines listed anywhere else.
Of course, there have been exceptions – I’ve occasionally seen a lower price at Amazon or a refurbished model on a deal website, but Cricut.com is very quick to adjust their prices to make sure you’re not shopping elsewhere for your machine.
I love that Cricut.com makes it easy to buy your Cricut Maker (or any other Cricut brand machine) right from the source. I have a lot of peace of mind when I have a receipt straight from the manufacturer. Especially when I’m spending hundreds of dollars on a product.
The Cricut Maker in your choice of colors is priced at $349.99. That’s $50 off the list price of $400!
Where NOT to Shop for The Best Cricut Maker Deals
I know when we’re shopping for just about anything, our first instinct is to check Amazon. A few years ago I would have wholeheartedly supported this when shopping for a Cricut Maker.
Now, I don’t recommend it. Amazon just isn’t the best place to buy a Cricut. Why? Here’s just a sample of the reviews from various machines available on Amazon:
Most crafters prefer to get their Cricut machines directly from Cricut. To be completely honest, it’s just risky to make bigger purchases on Amazon. You’re certainly protected with Amazon’s return policy and their A-to-Z guarantee, but that only goes so far.
Buying with the A to Z guarantee means you should get your money back if your order isn’t right. But you’ll still have the hassle of orders gone wrong and you’ll also potentially miss a great deal on a Cricut machine from a reputable source.
Amazon’s prices on the Cricut Maker may occasionally lower than what you’ll find on Cricut.com. If you choose to buy from Amazon, please take measures to be extra cautious before you place your order. Please follow these steps if you choose to buy a Cricut Maker from Amazon.
- Make sure the machine you’re buying is brand new.
- Read the reviews and sort them so you view the most recent reviews first.
- Make certain the model described matches the one you want. Don’t trust the picture.
- Check the brands of everything in the bundle. A common complaint is that the accessories look very similar to brand name items, but they’re not actually brand name.
- Price out everything in the bundle. Amazon’s Cricut Maker bundle “deals” usually aren’t even close to the Cricut Maker bundles on Cricut’s website.
