The electric Go! Big is wonderful and I absolutely love mine. Mine came with the 9 Qube and companion Qubes which are very handy for shapes and especially charm packs. I now make my own charms and it is so much cheaper than buying multiple charm packs for larger projects. I fussy cut all the charms for a twin bed in minutes. The strip dies are really awesome! I love my Go! Big so much I bought the small Go! Me for the times when the electricity is out and for traveling.

The dies do go on sale and sometimes with free shipping around holidays. As a bonus, my family loves it because gift giving is now so easy for them. I ordered 2 dies around the 4th of July with free shipping on a Mother's Day gift card from one of my sons. So they can be affordable or at lest less expensive with careful planning. You will not regret going for it.
