Joann's has the Cricut Mini on sale for $99 but doesn't have it online or in my local store. What's up? Is it being discontinued or is backorder common? Any suggestions besides ebay?

Bring flyer to the store and request one and if they cannot produce it as for a rain check. Maybe you can go online and put in the sales catalog number and order it that way. Good Luck

Ugh, I spent 20 minutes at the store and they couldn't find the SKU. They had the sale price hanging in the aisle and were willing to order it for me but couldn't do it without the number. Kind of wondering if I've missed the boat.

When I try to add it to my my cart on the website I get a pop-up saying it is out of stock, not backordered. I put my email address in for contact when it becomes available but thought maybe some cake central person would know if there is a new model coming out or something.

i called my local Joanns, it's not being discontinued, it's just a sale. they are also offering the fullsize Cricut Cake for $299 the sale lasts until the 19th. my local store only had 1 left in stock and they are holding it for me till hubby gets home.. my advice is to call your local store and ask for a manager, see if you can get a rain check for one.

I did the same thing. I entered my email addy to be notified, but haven't heard a thing since then. I've checked online a couple of times since then and it's still out of stock.

Generally places receive shipments only once a week, ask a manager at your local store what day their truck comes in
