While browsing around Cricut’s site I found this new product today. It’s a 10 DVD bundle of videos, how-to use the Cricut and 100 projects showing step by step instructions. It’s 216.00 but the intro bundle deal is if you buy it now you get a Personal Cricut free, also a sampler Cartridge with 600 images, and some Imagine how to Videos.
Cricut's New DVD's
This will be the new TV infomercial on late nights, it has the same pay a low fee up front (shipping of 24.95) and then a payment of 63.95 and 3 more payments of 72.00. This is not an economical way to go this makes the base price before shipping fees and processing fees 279.95. Now add on the 24.95 intital shipping for the DVD’s and another 24.95 for the Cricut’s shipping, and then there is 15.00 for processing the 3 72.00 payments (5.00 each month added on). Now your total for this bundle will be 344.85.
Not really such a deal when you get it that way. If you pay the 216.00 all at once, you still have to add the 2 24.95 shipping costs but you also get a Deep Cut Blade and housing Kit. That means ultimately your paying 265.90 for the bundle which is a much more reasonable price.
Ok enough with prices I know you’re talking to me through your computer right now saying “April, come on tell us what the heck we get for 216.00 already”. 🙂 ok so here’s what you get:

So that’s about it, I would love to get ahold of the DVD’s but unfortunately I could never talk my husband into spending 216.00 for DVD’s (Especially when he wants some DVD set, I think it’s the complete Mash series, that I keep saying is too expensive at about 150.00). Maybe someone I know will buy them and let me borrow them so I can at least watch them and return them, heck I would pay to have them mailed to me one at a time and mail them back to someone I just want to watch maybe take some notes, maybe learn something new. 🙂
You can also buy the DVD’s only and they come with the bonus kit contents, however it’s still 216.00.
This is a nice kit for beginners, I just wish they would offer the DVD’s for sale individually as well. Maybe they will later however I bet they will be 19.95 each that way, but you wouldn’t have to buy the ones you didn’t want.
