Discount Cricut Cartridges - Buying Them on EBay

Jun 26, 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.

There are plenty of websites where you can get everything you need for this wonderful hobby, but to get the best deals it is worth spending time searching through online auction sites such as eBay. Just a quick search for cheap Cricut cartridges on eBay and you will be astounded at just how many are available in auctions that are currently underway.

Yet even before you start placing bids on those particular Cricut cartridges that you want it is crucial that you do some research first. Below we offer just a few tips to help you when it comes you buying any discount Cricut cartridges from an auction site such as eBay.

Tip 1 - One of the first things you should be doing is actually finding out what the cartridges are really worth by having a look at some auctions that have already closed to see what was paid for the item previously.

Tip 2 - Along with looking at items where the auctions have already completed take a look to see what is happening in relation to bids being placed on items that are currently up for sale. Spend time looking at each items description and comparing them. At this stage you should be aware of what it is you particularly want and ask yourself whether you are willing to purchase a brand new or used item. If the information is limited in the description then move on to the next item that appears on the 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.

To further check a seller's information you need to click on their name and then take a close look at any of the up to date information which will be provided to you. This way you will quickly be able to avoid those sellers whose comments during the last month have been somewhat negative and which warns you that it is better to avoid them and look at another one instead.

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.

A great way of working out if the prices quoted for shipping is reasonable is to visit sites like DHL and UPS and see just what they are going to charge for the sending (including insurance) for such items and compare this to what the seller has quoted. If you discover that the shipping costs for your discount Cricut cartridges is higher than those charged by the courier company then move on to the next auction item on your list.
