1) Use Competitor Coupons And Prices
We all love getting Michael’s coupons. They usually have some great ones! But, did you know you can use competitor coupons at Michael’s?
Even if the store isn’t in your town or city. If you see an item that’s cheaper at Joann, Hobby Lobby, Ben Franklin or AC Moore, you can get the competitor’s price as long as you have the ad to prove it. AND, you can use competitor coupons too! It’s awesome!
2) Download the Michaels App
Access awesome savings via the Michael’s App! Get it for iOS or Android! The app usually as coupons for 40% Off, and we’ve seen some for as much as 60% Off! Plus, sometimes the have 20% Off your entire purchase coupons, which you can use on sale items! Easy savings!
3) Watch For BOGO Sale Events
Michael’s is famous for is BOGO 50% Off sales! You can find items like frames, seasonal and home decor, ribbon, craft kits, and jewelry-making supplies on sale frequently BOGO 50% Off or more! With Sales like these, you can save your coupons for something else!

I love browsing the clearance section! Sometimes you can find sealed mystery Grab Bags price between $2.00 and $4.00! These are great if you just need some new ideas for a project as they come filled with clearance crafting supplies or home decor. It’s like a treasure hunt!

If you are a teacher, have a military ID, or are over 55, you can get up to a 15% discount when you check out! Note that you can’t combine these discounts with coupons.
Teacher discount: 15% on classroom-related items.
Military discount: 15% entire purchase every day.
Senior discount: 10% off entire purchase every day (55 years and older).
7) Buy Seasonal Decor For Cheap
You may not be aware, but the best time to buy seasonal decor is usually the day after the holiday. Last year at Michael’s, you could buy 7′ artificial trees for less than $50 the week before Thanksgiving! Crazy! Let us know what deals you’ve scored shopping like this.
8) Check The Sticker Colors!
Have you noticed the different color stickers in the clearance section? Knowing what they mean can help you know when to grab an item immediately or if you can wait. Orange clearance stickers mean items are at or near their final markdown, so if you find something you like, grab it. Green clearance stickers mean an item is new merchandise, so you could possible wait for the price to drop a little more before snagging it.
9) Know What To Buy
Some of the best things to buy at Michael’s are holiday items, frames and ribbon. There are generally great sales for these happening all the time and you can use coupons to save even more. In contrast, some of the worst yourthings to buy are books and many of the craft machines. This is due to most coupons excluding them in the fine print.
10) Take Survey On Receipt & Get A 25% Off or $5.00 Off Coupon.
Be sure to check your receipt for a survey that will give you either a 25% off or a $5.00 off coupon! The survey doesn’t take very long, and both of the coupons are totally worth it! Saving is savings, am I right?!
