Where can I find the best price on the Silhouette Cameo?

How to save on Cutting Files and Silhouette Store Subscription

The cost of the images for the silhouette is “99¢ per shape on the Silhouette online store, or you can draw your own shapes for free“.  That’s not entirely accurate because you can buy a subscription to the Silhouette online store and pay as little as .10 per image!  I say this because I have the “Premium Subscription” and I pay $16.00 a month for 150 images.  That comes out to about .10 per image!

Silhouette Online Store Subscription Coupon Code  - When I originally signed up for my subscription I used a coupon code that is no longer valid.  From time to time there may be coupon codes floating around so keep your eyes and ears open!  That’s the best time to sign up or upgrade!

There are other levels you can purchase for an online store subscription as well and the coupon code will work for all of them. So as you can see, you don’t have to pay .99 per image as stated in the chart if you purchase a subscription and use the coupon code.

There are also a few times a year that Silhouette America has a sale on their subscriptions (I believe around the Christmas Holidays) so you may want to keep that in mind.

If you want to download the free Silhouette software and play around with it before purchasing the cameo to get a feel for it and to see the images you can purchase, click here.

I hope this helps you in your search for the best price on the Silhouette Cameo.  If you know of a great deal that I didn’t list here, please leave a comment and let me know and I’ll add it!  Thanks for stopping by!

 

Silhouette Cameo Blade Issues and 40% off Coupon Code!

02/22/12 *UPDATE* – Coupon code has expired.

For 10% off all monthly subscriptions at silhouette america, try coupon code  SCRAPBOOK EXPRESS

Here’s my Cameo story….

So I used the blade that came with my cameo maybe a dozen times and then it started tearing the paper.  I called Silhouette America and they said it was very common for the blade tip to break off if I changed the settings so to try another.  So I took my brand new replacement blade out of the package, put it in the cameo and proceeded to try to cut an image.  It wouldn’t even cut through the paper.  So I put on a thin piece of paper and it still wouldn’t cut.   Changed the settings, still not cutting. The lady on the phone said I probably broke the tip off again (I don’t think so, I think it was defective) and that she would send me a replacement but to always try the double cut feature before changing the settings in the future.

So while I wait for my new blade I started thinking it sounds like the blades are not made very well so it would be a good idea to have a handful in my stash for times like this.  (I needed to make some cards and now I have to do it without my cameo which is frustrating) so I posted on twopeas message forum and a lovely lady shared a coupon code with me for everything at silhouetteamerica.com (except the actual cameo itself).  Here is the info!

40% off all accessories at www.silhouetteamerica.com when you use the coupon code CRAFT. 

I just stocked up on not just blades but also mats!  Lord knows I’ve abused the one I have since I’m still learning the settings for different papers.

There is a serious learning curve when it comes to the settings on the cameo.  It is frustrating for me because as a former cricut owner, I was used to doing things easily and now I never seem to be able to cut anything right the first time.  If anyone knows of a blade settings guide for different papers, please let me know.  I’d love to save more blades and mats by having the right info.  I use mostly American Crafts, Coordinations, Papertrey Ink and Stampin’ Up papers when cutting.   Tips are appreciated since I’m a frustrated newbie to the Cameo!

Thanks!
