Old review - I purchased the mini with the $25 gift card bundle, but when I tried to use the card it was deemed "invalid." I called customer service and learned that there are several steps you have to go through to get the gift card to work. There are no instructions on the gift card itself, in the "packet" that comes with the machine, or here on Amazon. (It sounds like there may be differences in the gift cards based on where you purchased the machine; these instructions are for those bought through Amazon.) I think I remembered all the steps, but the words/phrases may not be exact.
(1) Create an account if you don't already have one
(2) Go into your account, look at the menu list on the left and click on "Gift Card/Store Credit" at the bottom
(3) Click on the "Add" button located on the right
(4) Enter your number exactly as written (mine had cap letters)
(5) Save it
(6) Return to the home page and go shopping!
(7) When you're ready to checkout, IGNORE THE PROMO CODE BOX IN THE CART, just click "Continue"
(8) Fill in all the information requested, including credit card info, clicking on the gift card box at the bottom.
(9) Select the number that should have been saved into your account.
(10) Finish checking out
I hope this will be helpful to those of you that went with the gift card bundle! If this doesn't work, call customer service Monday through Friday at 801 932-1144 and prepare to be patient. It took her several minutes with me on hold to come up with these instructions. (BTW, you can only purchase digital "cartridges" with the gift card, so you won't be able to use them on "computer-free" Cricut machines.)
The machine itself is OK, though I still prefer my original "Baby Bug" and Expression machines; they are faster in every way. The other reviewers have pointed out many of the difficulties working with the Mini, so I won't repeat them here. I'm planning on using the Mini at work so I don't have to keep lugging the machines and the cartridges back and forth. I'll do the big stuff at home and use the Mini for the smaller things I tend to use at the office. Happy cutting!
I’m an given three starts to this machine just based on the fact that when you buy this machine you are buying also the craft room software and the Provo craft support.
I will start with the things I dint like. The Craft room software is a little hard to install, I had to enter to circuit blogs to find out how this software work and how I should make it work with my antivirus since the Provo craft customer service is so bad that they literally let you waiting in the phone every time you call. I live outside the USA so that calls were really expensive to me and at the end they didn’t help me I had to go to a blog to figure it out by myself.
I find the fact that you need to turn off your antivirus in order for the software to work very dangerous. I didn’t like this at all.
In the other hand, if you live outside the USA and you don’t have a credit card with an USA address be aware that you will NOT BE ABLE TO BUY CARTRIDGES from Provo craft directly, you will have to buy them from amazon and them link them to your craft room account so you can actually use them.
It seems to me like Provo craft doesn’t like the international consumers. My machine came with a $25 gift card, which you can only use to buy things form the craft room exclusive, and I spend almost $15 in calls to Provo craft so they tell me how to use this code and every time they spoke to me they tell me that if I live outside the USA I can’t use the promo code, even though I told them that I was using a USA credit card. I find out how to use it thanks to a review that an amazon’s costumer posted.
Calling Provo craft is calling the must slow and unhelpful customer service representatives.
Also, I have serious issues with the cutting mat. It’s so sticky that mine broke while trying to remove the cut. If you are an intelligent buyer I believe that you read that this is a common problem and that Provo craft is willing to give a replacement, but as I told you before, apparently they don’t like the international costumers because this does not apply if you live outside the USA.
In the good things of this machine, its cuts beautiful, you can cut 100 invitations in less than 2 hours. You can also combine images from the cartridges that you have to create a new one and it will cut it perfectly.
If you are looking a simple cutting machine that replace a die machine, this one is for you. If you are an international customer, be aware.
