Buying Discount Cricut Cartridges On eBay

Jun 24, 2008
For anyone who owns a Cricut machine buying the cartridges to make the cuts in paper and other materials can prove to be extremely expensive. In fact there are cases where you will end up spending as much as $100 on just one cartridge for your machine and so it is something you need to consider before you decide to take this craft up as hobby. However, when it comes to buying discount Cricut cartridges the internet is a great place to start your search.

Today there are not only websites dedicated to this fascinating hobby, but also you are going to get great deals on the equipment including the cartridges by searching online auction sites such as eBay. Certainly a quick search on eBay and you will be amazed at just how many auctions are going on where you can buy discount Cricut cartridges from.

However, before you do start putting in any bids for those cartridges you want for your Cricut machine it is important that you do some research beforehand. In this article we offer a few tips to help you when buying discount Cricut cartridges from an eBay auction.

Tip 1 - It is a good idea to actually do some research in order to find out just how much the cartridges are really valued at and the easiest way of doing this is to look at some auctions that have already completed. This way you will be able to quickly tell just what people are willing to pay and therefore what you should be paying when bidding on an item.

Tip 2 " As well as looking at those cartridges where the auctions are closed also look at current ones and spend time comparing each of the descriptions provided on the item. It is a good idea at this stage to have an idea of what is particularly important to you when purchasing the product. Do you want something that is brand new or will you be happy to purchase something that has been used. If you cant find answers in the description to what questions you may have then move on to the next item on the auction list.

Tip 3 - You should learn as much as you possibly can about the person who is trying to sell the discount Cricut cartridges. Spend time reading through any "seller feedback" that they have. Remember for each positive comment a seller receives they get a point and for every negative comment a point is deducted. But just because they have a high rating it doesn't mean that they are someone you should trust completely and you may well find that recent customers are not so happy with them.

What you should now be doing is actually clicking on that persons name and reading some of the more up to date information that has been posted. Certainly if you find someone who has had a number of negative comments made about them in the last month or so then avoid this one and go on to someone who does have a far better rating than them.

Tip 4 - It is important that another thing you need to do before you place any bid for possible discount Cricut cartridges is to work out exactly how much the item really is going to cost. So along with the amount you are bidding you need to factor in the cost of having the item shipped to you and you may well find that you are getting a great deal after all.

To work out just whether you are getting a good deal on your discount Cricut cartridges it is an idea to find out what the courier companies like UPS and DHL will charge for shipping and insuring these items. Compare this price against what is being quoted by the seller and if you find it is somewhat higher then move on to the very next auction item on your list.
