I got an email earlier in the week about a Madness sale at cricutmachine.com starting this morning at 6 am. I went to the site on Wed. and filled my cart with stuff I would be interested in, saved a PDF of my shopping cart just in case it was emptied out, and waited for the sale to start. Not only is not a single thing in my 84 item cart less expensive but 3 items are more expensive. I went through the site this morning and there is not a single item less expensive this morning than it was Wednesday when I went through their inventory. What a joke! Why advertise a Madness sale with a limited time frame and then disappoint like that? Did they think no one would notice nothing is actually on sale?!ThumbDown

I saw that email too and checked it out, but nothing was cheaper and stuff in the bargain bin was actually higher!!!

I bought tons of Yudu stuff for $1.75 and now it $2.

They apparently also upped the amount you have to buy to get free shipping. What is wrong with them?!

I was looking forward to this "sale" as well, what a nonsale instead! I did buy lot's of dies yesterday from the sizzix sight for my bigshot. Now that was a sale!! 75% off dies made before 2013. I do think I will buy the artbooking cartridge, but I think that may be my last cartridge.

Such a fail! This "sale" is apparently how they are launching their newly designed site. I am not sure how making things more expensive, upping your free shipping requirement and then advertising your regular prices as a "madness" sale is how you welcome customers to your new site. Everything this company does has me shaking my head.

I noticed that the prices were higher too on the sale and what is even more discouraging is that - the shipping to Canada!!! I put 1 yourstory album in my cart and it was $30 shipping. Their shipping to Canada has always been high and there is no reason for it.

I was not impressed with the madness "sale" prices so I didn't purchase anything.

I was excited to get that email too. What a disappointment! A better sale to check out is bargainpack.com. They also have free shipping with a $30 purchase.

Yep! I put a $9.00 item in my cart to check on shipping & it was $29.95!! Stupid! I haven't bought from there in ages now but was looking forward to a good sale as well. Glare

I've been out of town the past week and haven't been able to see my emails. So I didn't even know about the 'sale' but after reading about it...looks like I didn't miss a thing. It's a little comforting knowing it was crappy and that I didn't miss out Razz

They did the same thing with their midnight madness sale on Cricut.com a few months ago (cricutmachine is owned by PC). I had been looking at some lites that had a regular price of $15 earlier in the week, but when I saw the ad for the midnight madness sale I waited because I thought they would be even cheaper. Boy, was I wrong. The regular prices DOUBLED to $30, then they put it "on sale" for $22. Needless to say, I was beyond mad. I think PC is hoping that those who know their regular prices will just move on and they can bring in new crafters that don't know the new prices are too high.
