Cricut Maker Smart Cutting Machine $398 + Delivery ($0 C&C/ in-Store) @ Harvey Norman


note: its not a circuit maker.

So the wife was pestering me to find her a good deal with the black friday sales with the Cricut Maker. No point (for us) to get the Maker 3 model as don't plan to use any of their "smart" materials.

I noticed that Harvey Norman/Officeworks has reduced their price down from 496 to 398. I̶f̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶r̶ ̶l̶u̶c̶k̶y̶ ̶e̶n̶o̶u̶g̶h̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶h̶a̶v̶e̶ ̶a̶ ̶s̶p̶o̶t̶l̶i̶g̶h̶t̶ ̶t̶h̶a̶t̶ ̶h̶a̶s̶ ̶o̶n̶e̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶s̶e̶ ̶i̶n̶ ̶s̶t̶o̶c̶k̶,̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶ ̶c̶a̶n̶ ̶f̶u̶r̶t̶h̶e̶r̶ ̶r̶e̶d̶u̶c̶e̶ ̶i̶t̶ ̶d̶o̶w̶n̶ ̶b̶y̶ ̶1̶0̶%̶ ̶b̶y̶ ̶p̶r̶i̶c̶e̶ ̶m̶a̶t̶c̶h̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶c̶h̶a̶m̶p̶a̶g̶n̶e̶ ̶m̶o̶d̶e̶l̶.̶

  • Make 3 might be worth it for the Bluetooth, but I think they're otherwise pretty much the same (bar smart materials)

    • +1

      the maker comes with bluetooth as well, so the only difference i could ascertain was the use of smart materials and the benefits that comes with that….

      • Haha I've been using mine over cable for no reason. Thanks for letting me know.

  • +3

    Officeworks has a pack with 3 mats included for the same price: https://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/p/cricut-mak...

  • Good deal with the price match

  • Anyone have the most up dated info on the Cricut printing restrictions? I remember looking into buy a Cricut until they announced they were going to restrict users to something like 20 design prints per month unless you paid a subscription to unlock more which was previously free unlimited.

    I think there may have been custom firmware to bypass the limitations.

    • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cricut
      That plan was scrapped ….

      There are other issues, much like the days of HP, (if they still do it), having dated ink cartridges with chips using proprietary measures to extort more money from "users".

      • What other issues are you talking about? Only one I know of is the paywall behind actual fonts (can't even make your own hand writing font if you wished to) and no API.

        • There isn't much in the Wikipedia page, just read that; perhaps I've read too much in to it, perhaps not.

          • @affinity: I'm confused, you said they have issues but which issues are you talking about? Every design I've made on mine works fine. Most people seem to dislike design space but honestly its a fine program apart from being closed source.

              @Jenny Death: It's more the proprietary nature, use their program, not an open source alternative; use their cartridge only. It's kind of like buying a PC and being forced to run only Winblows on it, or even worse, pay a subscription to be able to use your own machine properly, such as O365 for instance. Just use Linux and LIbreOffice in this arena…. ;-)

              • @affinity: Are the cartridges even a thing anymore? The maker just takes designs from the pc. But yeah the propietary garbage is honestly saddening. One more programme for the windows hard drive…

    FYI cricut machines are excluded from the Spotlight price match policy https://www.spotlightstores.com/faq/bargain-guarantee

    • nuts :( only went by the signs at spotlight without looking at the policy online. oh well - post has been amended. can confirm that the accessories are still fair game

  • :( I paid so much more last month

  • Just ordered one for click and collect from Officeworks. As Hardly Normal was showing $19.95 delivery, wasn’t available at nearby store.

    Don't forget HN 7% gift card cashback from Shopback + $5 'opt in' bonus cash back if using a Mastercard to pay for them.
    Brings the total to $365
