Our Amazon sale Cricut live blog is now closed as, sadly, the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale has ended. However, many of the deals on the best Cricut machines continue, as do the offers on the best Cricut alternatives, such as Silhouette's Cameo 4 machines.

Below we've kept refreshing the best offers available now, as many of these deals are happening off Amazon – Cricut itself has some good discounts on its own site and if you're in the US Best Buy continues to discount. We won't be updating live but the deals are still running.

If you need to know more about these digital craft cutters then take a look at our guide to the best Cricut machines and the The best Silhouette machines. Scroll down for the offers still available right now.

Hello! It's Kerrie here, CB editor, bringing you all the best Cricut deals Amazon (and others) have to offer. Great news is the Amazon sale has plenty of excellent offers, more so in the UK than the US right now, but that could all change over the next 48 hours. 

Kicking things off, we've got this Amazon UK deal, which knocks the super-popular original Cricut machine down to £254, saving over £46 on the RRP. We can't find this for less than £299 elsewhere in the UK, so if this is the model you're after, grab one before they're gone. 

Cricut explore 3 review

The Cricut Explore 3 has had a rather delightful price cut, bringing it down 18% to just £246 (close to the lowest price we've seen on this amazing machine). We love this machine, deeming it perfect for crafters who want power without a large price tag (and that's especially true today). It cuts over 100 materials, it can use Smart Materials and it cuts twice as fast as the Explore 2. Win.

See our Cricut Explore 3 review here if you want to know more.

Have you picked up a new Cricut cutting machine this Amazon Prime Deals day? Then you'll need a new blade or accessory to take your crafting to another level. We've picked three of our favourite blade offers available now, see below:

We're going to sneak in another Cricut alternative offer that popped onto our craftdar (ahem) that knocks £100 off the price of a Brother ScanNCut SDX1200, making it £698.99 £598.99. 

If you're looking for a state-of-the-art craft cutter that does everything then this is for you; it features a built-in scanner and onboard CPU and LCD touchscreen for creating your designs inside the machine. Read our Brother ScanNCut SDX2200D review for more details.

There are discounts on Cricut's own tote bags for the Cricut EasyPress 2. This is the older model of the brand's heat press machine so if you have one of these excellent devices – read our EasyPress 2 review – you should invest in a storage bag to keep your device safe and clean.

Welcome to our US friends who are waking up, rubbing their eyes and searching for a good Cricut deal. One of the best around remains the $150 price drop for the original Cricut Maker in Champagne at the Cricut online store. 

Get the Cricut maker for $399.99 $249.99 today and save big. This is the older model of the brand's leading craft machine but it's still a powerful device (essentially it can do everything a Maker 3 can aside from working with Smart Materials). For the price, this is a great deal and a perfect introduction to Cricut.

Amazon Prime deals; explore 3

There's a 13% saving on Cricut Explore 3 right now, get one for $319 $279. This is an excellent machine and makes use of Cricut's latest Smart Material tech and newest accessories.

If you're starting out with Cricut and want a good entry-level machine the Cricut Explore 3 is an excellent model. It works in the same way as the more costly Maker 3 – and can use Smart Materials – but it's limited to just over 100 materials (Maker and Maker 3 can use 300+). Which makes Explore 3 an excellent beginner machine.

Read our best Cricut machines guide for details on the Explore 3.

Amazon Prime deals; cricut mystery box

(Image credit: Cricut)

Cricut's Aloha Mystery Box is reduced by $73.41, get it now for $133.40 $59.99. What is it? Who knows, it's a mystery. Seriously, Cricut won't say. We'd guess at a box of selected cutting materials, accessories, and digital image sets. 

This Aloha mystery box was more expensive than the usual ones, before the discount, so we're intrigued. There's only one per customer and it's only available to US and Canadian customers. And they're limited, so when it's gone, it's gone.
