I was wondering if anyone had tried any of the Cricut cartridge rental sites. How was your experience? I am thinking of buying the small Cricut as Joann's is going to have them on sale next weekend for 99.96. The cost of the cartridges that I might only use a few times is what's keeping me from getting one. I can see using the fonts for titles, but not sure if it would be worth 40-50 per for something I would only use a few times.

I get all my carts on ebay and won't pay over $25 for them. It is doable--you just have to be patient. Plus if you tire of it you can usually list it and get your money back.
There are also yahoo groups that post for sale ad's and you can get great deals there.
The only cart that I paid full price for is Graphically Speaking... It is LOVE! I would gladly pay $100 for it. It is the one that I use most.

rentals? that would be rather counter productive for anyone doing it (if it were a retail place) what with the gypsie coming out.
you could just rent a cart and load it on the gypsie and have to foevere.
though, if you have friends that had differnet carts than you, you could swap or borrow.

With the gypsey you can only download a cart once-it takes the serial #so your friend cannot download it also.

I have never heard of rentals, and also agree the Bay is the cheapest easiest place to get cartridges/with free shipping. I got all of mine there $25. or less. Patience is necessary but they are there, in plenty!!

My scrapbook store has rentals. I have tried out several new cartridges that way. The store is very up-to-date with the releases.
It really does make sense. I needed to use the animal cartridge (I forget the name) to make a cat border but I didn't need the cartridge besides that one project. I also rented Paper Doll Dress Up when my nephews came over and I wanted a project for us to do. I ended up loving the cartridge so I bought it.
