Amazon is offering the Cricut Maker 3 for $379 shipped. That’s a $21 discount from its normal going rate and a match for the all-time low that we’ve only seen once before. Cricut’s latest Maker 3 is the company’s flagship DIY cutting machine. If you have the Maker, or even the Explore Air 2, it’s worth the upgrade. You’ll find that it’s up to twice as fast as the original Maker and can handle over 300 items, including the new Smart Materials which work without a mat. I’ve had the Maker 3 for the past few months and it’s an absolute blast to use. Learn more in our hands-on review. Amazon’s customers have already rated it 4.6/5 stars collectively and made it a #1 best-seller there.
On a tighter budget? Opting for the Explore 3 at $299 gives many of the benefits that the Maker 3 above has. While you’ll only have the ability to cut 100+ items, instead of 300+, it still handles new Smart Materials while offering a sleeker look. Of course, you could instead opt for the Explore Air 2 at $170 if you don’t mind giving up Smart Materials compatibility.
Now, running Cricut’s Design Space is possible on just about anything, including an iPad or iPhone. However, a powerful computer really is the best experience, and right now Apple’s 16-inch Intel MacBook Pros are up to $500 off. This discount delivers new all-time lows to enjoy, so be sure to check out our previous coverage for more information.
