Welcome to Cricut Black Friday 2020!

It’s that time of year again!!

Many of us have been waiting for months to finally get a great deal on that Cricut machine, so I won’t bore you with a long introduction.

I’ll start you off with a quick summary of the very best 2020 Cricut Black Friday deals. If you’re looking for a Cricut Maker or Explore Air 2, there are exclusive deals on both just released.

Best Black Friday Cricut Deals: Quick Summary

I’ve worked closely with Cricut this year to bring you guys the best Black Friday & Cyber Monday deals.

If you’ve been waiting for the right moment to purchase a Cricut Maker, I’m actually stunned at some of the promotions Cricut has been offering.

I’ll keep this post updated throughout this huge sale, so be sure to check back on new deals as many of these will go out of stock quickly like they did last year.

If you aren’t sure which to purchase, I do have a quick Cricut comparison guide that you can check out.

For any deals you see on Cricut.com, make sure to use the promo code SHIPNOV for free shipping on orders $99+. This coupon code applies not only to Cricut machines but also to materials and accessories.

On to the best Black Friday deals:

Black Friday Cricut Maker Deals

If you’re looking for a Black Friday deal on our favorite Cricut machine, you absolutely want to check out these deals.

The Cricut Maker is the most powerful and versatile cutting machine released by Cricut, and on most days it’s also their priciest too. Right now is an exception as with some of these deals and bundles you’re actually getting the Cricut Maker for close to the price of the Explore Air 2.

If you work a lot with fabric, thicker materials, or want a machine designed for all of Cricut’s new tools and innovations, this is the machine for you.

Cricut Maker, Champagne

  • New Rotary Blade, making it the best for cutting fabric
  • New Knife Blade, letting it cut thicker materials than any other machine
  • Future-proof with the new Adaptive Tool System
  • Bluetooth & wireless cutting

Black Friday Cricut Explore Air 2 Deals

While it’s no longer the latest and the greatest offered by Cricut, the Cricut Explore Air 2 is still their most popular machine and it’s no surprise why.

The Explore Air 2 takes all of what was great about their Explore line of machines and made them faster & prettier (seriously, check out these colors!).

The Cricut Explore Air 2 has a wonderful design, is super easy to use, and is often the best value you can find: Black Friday & Cyber Monday are no exceptions.

Black Friday Cricut Joy Deals

As the newest machine released by Cricut, this will be the first Black Friday sale for the Cricut Joy.

The Cricut Joy is a very cute, very small machine designed to be portable and easy to use. It’s small enough to fit in a cubby, and only uses wireless Bluetooth.

If you’re looking to make a lot of greeting cards for the holidays or make some cute custom labels or gift tags, this is the perfect machine for you. For larger projects, I’d recommend the Cricut Maker or Explore Air 2 above.

Cricut Joy

  • Least expensive Cricut machine
  • Super cute, super small, super portable. 
  • Fantastic at making greeting cards and labels
  • Bluetooth & wireless cutting

Our best deals and bundles:

Black Friday Cricut EasyPress Deals

The Cricut EasyPress makes working with heat transfer vinyl a breeze. If you’ve never used HTV before, or you’ve just been using your iron, this is a great opportunity to get one for these heat presses for a great deal.

The EasyPress lives up to its name, it’s super easy to use. You just select the material you want to work on and Cricut’s interactive Heat Guide does the rest, telling you the exact time and temperature to use.

Black Friday Vinyl Deals

You know that I’ve saved the best for last. If you know me, you know that I already have every vinyl cutting machine under the sun, but I still can’t wait for Black Friday and Cyber Monday to come around every year. I bet you can guess why.

TIME TO STOCK UP ON VINYL!

Honestly, with the amount of vinyl I buy this weekend, I’m basically set until next year, that’s how much I save up for this, and 2020’s Black Friday is no disappointment.

If a coupon or promo code isn’t listed next to the deal, then any promotions (such as Cricut’s FREE SHIPPING promotion) will be automatically applied.

How to Find Black Friday Cricut Deals

While we’ve highlighted only the best Cricut Black Friday deals available, you’ll notice that not all sales or bundles that are advertised are going to be worth it.

A lot of retailers know that shoppers are eager to buy this weekend, so you want to make sure to get the best deal available.

Many crafters also aren’t sure if it’s better to just wait to Cyber Monday. In our experience, Black Friday and Cyber Monday have very similar deals in 2020.

You’ll even notice early sales in the weeks before, which is why we’re putting up this article a bit early.

Select Your Store Carefully

If you’ve read one of our reviews before, you’ll know that I talk about this a lot. Some of the deals you’ll see on some sites are really too good to be true, unfortunately.

If you have a small mom-and-pop crafts store, really consider buying from there even if there’s a better deal online.

If the store is a large chain, you should definitely buy online instead. Almost all of the cutting machines and supplies you’ll need are much cheaper if you buy them online.

Check Return Policies

If you’re buying an expensive machine like the Cricut Explore Air 2 or Cricut Maker you want to be sure that not only are you happy with it and getting a good deal, but that if something goes wrong you’ll be able to easily return it.

The stores I recommend above all have fantastic return policies, even on their Cyber Monday or Black Friday deals.

Some things to look out for:

  • Does it say “final sale” anywhere?
  • Is there free shipping both on the initial purchase but also if you need something fixed or replaced?
  • Does the bundle come with software which if you activate you’ll no longer be able to return?
  • Does the bundle come with Cricut accessories that once opened you aren’t able to return?
  • What’s the restocking fee like?

When is Black Friday in 2020?

This year’s Black Friday occurs on Friday, November 27th, 2020.

When is Cyber Monday in 2020?

This year’s Cyber Monday occurs on Monday, November 30th, 2020.

Is there free shipping on Black Friday?

It depends! A lot of the Black Friday & Cyber Monday deals allow you to get free shipping with a coupon. We’ve linked a few above, and the rest of the links will automatically apply that free shipping coupon to your order.

Amazon deals also typically have free shipping if they’re sold and fulfilled by Amazon. I wouldn’t go for any deals which are sold by a third-party on Amazon because you can’t be sure of what you’re getting and the return policies can be pretty tricky.
