November 27, 2014

PostHEaderSit back, relax and enjoy not being pummeled with a toaster while you fight your way through the crazy Black Friday crowds. I’ve got a ton of deals for you that you can take advantage of from that trusty computer of yours. So get those wallets ready – or even better – forward this post to your mother, brother, husband, sister, friends as a gentle reminder about your crafty wishlist!

NOTE: This post will be updated throughout Thursday, November 27th – Monday, December 1st so check back to get all the deals as they become available! 


This deal is the best you’re gonna get on a Cricut Explore. It just is..and I’m not entirely sure how they are pulling it off, but I’m thinking you should take advantage now before someone in their financial department pulls the plug, LOL!

Now, you know how much I love the Cricut Explore, but if you need a reminder – be sure to check out THIS post about why you need an Explore in your life! If you’ve been chomping at the bit to grab up the Cricut Explore, they are offering some crazy good deals and you don’t need to worry about fending off the Walmart crowds or dwindling quantities.

  • The Deal: Three of the top selling Cricut Explore bundles (pictured above)  are available for $229.99 with the ability to save an additional $15 using the codes listed. Yeah – that’s $214.99 for some awesome bundles. Oh…and did I mention that there is Free Shipping!!

The Starter Bundle is my personal favorite bundle! It includes the scoring stylus, pens and deep cut blade with housing, which means you’ll have everything you need to write, score and cut tons of materials!

  • The Deets:  These deals are available Friday, November 28th – Monday, December 1


  • The Codes:  EXPLOREBFBLOG for $10 off your order AND CRICUTBF5 for $5 off orders over $50 made from AND FREESHIPNOV for free shipping on your order.



Amazon is offering the Cricut Explore Starter Kit for $199.00 – which includes Prime shipping! Quantities are limited on this item, though so if you miss out, you can still get a great deal on the Explore by jumping on one of the deals available through the Cricut website. Also – only the Starter Bundle is available for this price through Amazon. If you are interested in any of the other bundles, like the Bluetooth Bundle, the Cricut site is your best bet. Happy shopping.
