How to Shop and Save at Michael’s Craft Store
Crafting can be a pricey hobby. To enjoy it without going over budget, you might also need to get crafty with your shopping strategy.
Shopping at Michael’s is a convenient way to stock up on your favorite supplies, but it can also be a great way to save. Michael’s offers lots of deals and promotions to help you get your craft on without breaking the bank. Here are a few of our top tips to save money at Michael’s.
Join Michael’s Rewards
Michael’s Rewards offers some wonderful benefits for shoppers. Members receive exclusive savings offers, invitations to members-only events, sale alerts, and more. Plus, you can make returns without a receipt, so you won’t be stuck keeping a product you don’t want just because you already shredded the receipt to make confetti.
Buy in Bulk
Purchasing products in bulk can help you save up to 50%. This can help you save money on the most common crafting supplies, like mason jars, brushes, paints, and so much more.
Watch for Coupons, Sales, and Clearances
Michael’s offers a lot of limited-time savings in the form of coupons, sales, and clearances.
If you’re passionate about coupons, Michael’s can give you your fix. That because the chain runs a lot of coupons. Watch for coupons that offer 40% off an item, 20% off your entire order, and more. Best of all, you can stack coupons. You can only use one like coupon per day, but as long as each coupon is different, you should be fine!
Not only that, Michael’s offers some terrific sales. Michael’s frequently offers 50% off select products. Weekly sales start on Sundays. Since Michael’s doesn’t offer rainchecks, head to the store early in the week to make sure you get the sale products you want.
You’ll also find a lot of good clearance deals at Michael’s. Green stickers mean a product is new to clearance. Orange clearance stickers mean a product is at or near its final markdown.
Michael’s also offers hard-to-beat seasonal clearances. The day after a holiday, seasonal items are usually 60% off. After that, they drop to 80%. Then, any remaining items may end up in a $2-$4 seasonal grab bag!
Take Advantage of Price Matching
Michael’s will price match select competitors. Plus, Michael’s even offers an additional 10% off the competitor’s price. Similarly, Michael’s will also honor coupons from competitors. Price matching doesn’t stack with other coupons, but it can still offer great savings.
Download the Michael’s App
The Michael’s app gives you easy access to the weekly ad to look for deals. But more importantly, the app also offers coupons that you can have handy whenever you shop.
