Best deal on a Silhouette Cameo ?  

Amazon has been offering a Silhouette Cameo bundle for $269 throughout 2014, thus I consider this now a good baseline price.  But wise shoppers need to be diligent to compare what is in one bundle vs another vs just looking at the price.

Silhouette is holding a Black Friday sale, which is where I found the best deal and bought mine, several years ago.  Sales advertisement shows sale is good thru December 8th:

  1. Six outrageously low-priced CAMEO and Portrait packages (Silhouette Bundle @ $179, Portrait Bundles at $119 and $99, plus other bundles on sale)
  2. 40% off most items at* (use promo code BLACK at checkout)
  3. FREE shipping on all orders over $25.00*
  4. 50% off all designs in the Silhouette Design Store
Designs will be on sale at:
Products will be on sale at:

MICHAELS appears to have the best price for a basic Silhouette Cameo, regularly $269 on sale for $199. Unclear if what comes with this unit. Micheal’s is set to open 4 pm on Thanksgiving day and online discounts start at 4am Nov. 27 at 

SVG Cuts has a special #BlackFriday sale for a Silhouette Bundle for $249 which includes a $20 SVG store gift card.  This bundle looks like it includes 2 mats (1 that comes with a Silhouette and an extra mat), the metallic pen set, a pick me up tool, the Silhouette Studio SW which allows you to create your own designs, and the $20 SVG gift card.  This may be the best deal on the Silhouette Cameo, but do your shopping comparison before you buy.
