I buy a lot of things on Amazon but I checked and Quilt in a Day had better prices and more variety.

Accuquilt Company sells through Amazon and so do dealers. The prices can be different for the same item on Amazon. I like to buy from Quilt in a Day. They use the post office for delivery and returns are easy.

On the days of Accuquilt Live with sale specials, many times the specials will be listed on Amazon too. With prime I get free shipping and returns are fast and super easy to do If there is a problem. QIAD honors all Accuquilt sale prices too but not the one day specials.

Hint - unless I need the lines on the mat to line up my fabric, I will place it at any old angle and use my ruler to align and cut the fabric. Not going over the same old lines at all sure does save the usefulness of the mat! I don't use the mat lines for measurement, I use my rulers for that.

If you have a larger cutter, it may allow you more room to move the mat around and prolong its life. For example, the Big cutter has a 14” width, the Go! Has a 10” width and the Me/Baby have a 6” width. You have lots more room to positions the mat and still cover the die with a larger cutter width.

Still, some dies just take up the whole 6” width (I’m looking at you 4” finished quarter square triangle) and repeated use will run through mats faster than others. I think Accuquilt admits that the rag dies are particularly hard on mats.

And I love my Me cutter because it’s small size make it so easy to store. Even if it means buying more mats.
