I thought I would share that I went to ACM's today in Warmister PA and got the Tim Holtz Vagabond by Sizzix for $62.50 I used my $10.00 rewards so it ended up being $52.50. Yay!!! I am so excited. What haul's do you guys/gals have had in the past or present? I just wanted to share with you all

I was so undecided when I saw it and the manager told me that the store was not going to carry the machine anymore so they put on clearance for that price! LoL I was very happy and jumping for joy!

No not yet I am going on youtube to see what I can do with it with my current dies that I have. But if anyone have any ideas they want to share I would really appreciate it.

YOU HAVE TOTALLY KILLED ME WITH JEALOUSY

I want the Vagabond more than I want a home. I would trade my house for a 52.00 Vagabond and plug it into any outlet I can find on the side of a streetlight post and happily cut away.

That is the best deal I've EVER heard! Congratulations!!!

WOW! I thought I had the deal of the week with my spellbinder dies, but you take the cake. Way to go. I love my Vagabond and use it a lot. I got a deal on mine too, but not as much as you did. Happy scrappin.

Thank you everyone!!!! It was the last and only one at the store so at first I was on the fence about getting because I had the cuttlebug but my dear husband enabled me to get. He said as long as you use it that is all that matters and the smile on my face. He's the best!

Thaiti, I totally feel your excitement. Yesterday at J's I scored a Cinch 2 for $14.97! Plus 5 sets of covers (the 12x12 ones) for 50¢ each! I too quite visibly jumped for joy! Then on top of that I got 3 sets of alphabets for my presto punch 97¢ a set!

2gr8kids, That is a great haul you got at J's. I would totally have gotten it as well for that price even though I have a bind-it-all. lol
I also went to J's as well and found the new stamp and die set from sizzix and hero arts and it was on sale for $14.99 original price was $24.99. I got to save my 50% coupon at ACM's.

Madmatter- I hope you find some great deals at your ACM.

The vagabond is an electronic version of the big shot. Plus it looks like a suitcase!

Doesn't the grand calibur take the bigger dies? and the Big SHot Pro - doesn't it take the largest size dies?

Only the Grand Calibur takes the largest dies, but you CANNOT use the Tim Holtz dies on it (they are too thick).

The Pro and the Vagabond can be used for Nesties and for the thicker dies, but you CANNOT use them on the largest of the Grand Nesties sets.

The Vagabond is literally just an electronic version of the Big Shot (that admittedly also looks very cool)

Thanks for the tip, I almost purchased the Grand Calibur as well.
