The big Cricut Black Friday deals have come early. While the majority of sales will take place between 25 – 28 November just as we found last year many retailers, including Cricut itself, have begin discounting these incredible craft machines. 

For example, US makers can get the best-selling Cricut Joy for $169.99 $129.99 (opens in new tab), while UK crafters can save £95 on a Cricut Joy bundle at Very (opens in new tab)

Cricut is a blade-cutting machine, which can do everything from quilting to paper crafts and even wood working and clothing design, it really is the do-all gift. These brilliant cutting machines enable you to create a design on a computer and then automatically cut it out from material such as paper, vinyl, card, felt, fabric, leather or matboard. 

We'll add all the best Cricut offers we find. So whether you want top Black Friday Cricut Maker 3 deals or Cricut Joy Black Friday bargains, be sure to bookmark this page and come back to it. See below for deals across the Cricut range.

It doesn't matter whether you're interested in Cricut cutting machines, Cricut heatpress machines, or bundles with the best Cricut accessories, there will be some great deals to be had for Black Friday 2022.

We're already seeing some particularly astounding Cricut bundle deals, including with the original Cricut Maker, as well as price drops on the sophisticated Cricut Maker 3

The former will allow you to precision-cut more than 300 materials, from delicate fabric and paper to tough materials such as like matboard and leather. It also offers a choice of 13 tools to cut, score, write, deboss, engrave, or add other decorative effects with precision. The latter, meanwhile, is similar but can cut smart materials without a mat, which means you can make cuts of up to 12 ft (3.6 m) in one go. 

But last year delivered way more than that. We also saw brilliant prices on the Cricut Explore Air 2 and the Cricut Explore 3. The first is a great choice if you’re just getting started with machine cutting, as its software is nice and easy to use, yet it can still cut more than 100 different types of material, including premium vinyl, iron-on and HTV vinyl, cardstock, faux leather, adhesive foils, specialty paper and poster board. The second is similar but adds the ability to work with smart materials.

And the Cricut deals Black Friday could bring us this year don't end there! Last year, we saw the Cricut Joy price tumble, which is good news for anyone looking for a cutting machine that's super-portable. While if you're interested in heat presses, then check out the great deals on the Cricut EasyPress 2 and Cricut EasyPress Mini, not to mention the Cricut Mug Press

If you didn't see anything you liked above, see the deals below, which have the latest prices updated in real time. But beware: once these deals are gone, they're gone!
