December Cricut Mystery Bag

Cricut is a personal electronic cutting machine used in card making, scrapbooking, and crafting of all types. Cricut started selling mystery boxes which when they contain the cartridges are a terrific value! The cartridges that are needed to use the machine run anywhere from $20-$50 a piece. As you can see, adding to your collection of cartridges can add up quick.

The description said: The December Mystery Box. The contents are a mystery, but the winter mystery box includes 3 cartridges! This month's mystery box is over a $100 value.

The price of this months cricut mystery box was $29.99 plus shipping of $7.95. This month they offered free shipping using code FREESHIPDEC. This brought the final price to $32.24 after tax. This box is still available.

Contents of box with prices from the Cricut website listed. 
The first price is the regular price and the second price is the sale price listed. 

Cricut Paper Dolls Teen Scene cartridge. Value = $19.99/$13.33

Cricut Wall Décor and More cartridge. Value = $14.99/9.99

Cricut Dino Play cartridge. Value = $39.99/19.99

Cricut Scraper & Spatula Tool Set. Value = $9.99/6.99

The total value of this box is $84.96 or $50.30. Once again Cricut didn't meet the promised over $100 value. Also since all of these were on sale it was really only a savings of $20. While that's still a savings it's not the tremendous deal they make it out to be. I email them and suggested they review their product values and also a disclaimer than discounted items will be included in the box. They wrote back and said they will forward on my suggestions. For some reason I highly doubt they will. 
The good thing about this box is I don't have any of the cartridges. Although I could've sworn I had the Wall & Décor cartridge. I really need to organize my carts and start working on some projects

Verdict: If you are into Cricut and don't have a lot of cartridges the mystery boxes with cartridges in them is a great deal.
