The new Cricut Joy Xtra only launched a couple of months ago so deals are rare, but Cricut's exclusive Everything Bundle is a genuine bargain. You can get the Cricut Joy Xtra, materials, tools and a subscription to Cricut Access for $199 - the craft cutter alone costs $199, so these extras are actually free.

This new craft cutter is slightly larger than the portable Cricut Joy but smaller than the Cricut Explore 3, but it's still a capable machine - able to cut, score and emboss materials for craft and sewing projects. 

For free, you get: Premium Fine-Point Blade and Housing, Fine Point Pen, Mini Weeder, Cricut Joy Xtra Light Grip Mat, Starter Tool Set, Printable Sticker Paper, Glitter Gel Pens, Smart Iron-On materials, Smart Vinyl materials, Transfer Tape, and a subscription to Cricut Access Standard.
