Wait, What’s a Cricut Mystery Box?
Okay, Sis, I’m going to share a little inside scoop with you about one of my most asked-about topics: the Cricut Mystery Box!
If you’ve been in the Cricut World for a minute, you’ve probably heard the term Cricut Mystery Box but if you’re still feeling a little in the dark about what that actually means, I’m going to break it down for you!
What is a Cricut Mystery Box?
A Cricut Mystery Box is essentially a collection of items that Cricut selects and bundles together in a package that delivers incredible value – and pliantly of opportunity for you to try something that you might not normally buy as a stand-alone purchase. The items range from cutting materials, tools, accessories, and even digital images such as cut files.
*One thing to note is that while the contents of the boxes are predetermined by Cricut, they aren’t set in stone. If they run out of a particular item, it will be replaced by another item of equal or greater value.
When do they come out?
So, THIS is the true mystery of the Cricut Mystery Box. No one ever really knows when they will be released and there is no set schedule that we can look at to try a predict when a new one might come out.
As a Cricut Product Expert (a role that I am SO excited to have been hand-selected for by the lovely team at Cricut HQ!), I do have access to the boxes ahead of time, so that I am able to give YOU a sneak peek at their contents. BUT I never know exactly when the boxes will be released. I usually get notified of a new Mystery Box release just a few minutes before you find out too!
How much do they cost?
There isn’t an exact answer to this question because the price and value of each box vary. Typically, the MSRP ranges anywhere from about $125 – $180 and your cost ranges from about $39 – $50 (plus, you get an additional discount if you’re a Cricut Access Member!).
Can anyone buy a Cricut Mystery Box?
Sadly, no. Cricut Mystery Boxes are typically only available to U.S. and Canadian residents. There are also *some* Cricut Mystery Boxes that are only available to Cricut Access subscribers.
Pro Tip: Usually, Cricut Mystery Boxes that include a Cricut Cutie are reserved for Cricut Access Members.
Keep in mind, there are other perks to being a Cricut Access member, such as access to thousands of images and fonts from the design library, 10% savings on Cricut.com purchases, free shipping on $50+, and MORE! If you’re not already a member, you can subscribe to Cricut Access right here.
Something else to keep in mind: Cricut Mystery Boxes sell out FAST, so if you want to get your hands on one, you’ve got to act quickly!
Once a new Mystery Box has been announced, I try to post about it on my Instagram and Facebook pages right away so you don’t miss out. I also send out an announcement email to all of my subscribers with the link to shop as soon as the Cricut Mystery Box is released. If you’re not already on my email list, you can subscribe right here!
Okay, what’s the deal with the Cricut Cuties??
Ahhh, Cricut Cuties. These elusive little guys are one of the biggest draws of any Cricut Mystery Box! If a Cricut Cutie is included in a Mystery Box, you can pretty much guarantee that it’s going to sell out!
A Cricut Cutie is a small collectible plastic figurine of the Cricut mascot – and they are seriously adorable! They come in tons of fun colors and cannot be bought on the Cricut website, or anywhere really, except inside *some* Cricut Mystery Boxes.
PSA: Not ALL Cricut Mystery Boxes come with a Cutie and do have to be a Cricut Access Member in order to purchase the Mystery Boxes that do come with a Cricut Cutie!
I ordered my Cricut Mystery Box. Now what?
First of all, YAY! I’m so excited you decided to snag one for yourself. They are ALWAYS an incredible value and you can always count on getting something new and unique.
You should have your brand new Cricut Mystery Box in about a week – but shipping times do vary based on demand, weather, where you live in the country and all those other nitty-gritty factors that come up when you’re dealing with online shopping.
One last thing to note, you CANNOT return a Cricut Mystery box. All sales are final.
