Received the Cricut 4th of July offers email yesterday.

Why can't we in the UK not benefit from some of their exceptional prices?

Cricut Expression2 with 2 cartridges in USA $199.99 which translates to £128.53
UK price for the same Expression2 and cartridges here in UK is £233.95 which translates to $364.05

$ Difference is $164.06
£ Difference is £105.42

Elegant Cakes Cartridge
USA $17.76 translates to £11.41
UK £27.00 translates to $42.00

$ Difference is $24.24
£ Difference is £15.59

Who is ripping us off here in the UK - the importers or Cricut?????

Whilst I am on my rant why can't we have UK based Rewards?

Will be interested on any comments.

Because US money and the UK hold different value. UK costing more. Its like when I buy a pair of jeans. In the UK I can pay £60 and here its $60. Same price but I am using a different money. Its not about messing you over. Its how much money cost. When someone from the US visits the UK they pay almost double at times. £1 =$2 at times. Just like when someone from the UK comes here they can double the bank.

Oh also, remember you have to pay VATAngry Here in the US there isn't a flat rate tax (I think yours is 17%) we pay state tax, they run from free to about 8% depending on the state. So now if you add in your VAT and it being at 17% you pay less.
