I’ve been known to splurge a bit too much on craft supplies at my local Michael’s store. Just the other day, I “ran in” to crab a few spools of thread, and ended up leaving with $50 in fall home decor. I’m sure you all can relate! If you’re notorious for spending a little too much money at Michael’s you seriously NEED to know these hacks!

#1 Always Pricematch

Did you know that you can bring in a competitors ad to your local Michael’s and they’ll price match whichever item you’re interested in? They won’t honor the pricematch without the ad, so always make sure you bring it with you!

#2 50% Off Sales Are Common

Itching for new holiday decor? Keep a look out for 50% off sales on seasonal home decor, craft kits, and picture frames. They almost always announce these in their weekly ads!

#3 Check out the Grab Bags

Michaels‘ often sells “grab bags” for $2-$4 dollars. They’re filled with a potpourri of clearanced craft items. You never know what you’re going to get, but that’s the fun of it!

#4 Sign Up for Text Alerts

Say, what? Michael’s has a text alert system? You bet they do! Text “JOIN” to 273-283 to receive 8 texts per month informing you of special offers, sales, and daily deals.

#5 Do You Qualify for a 15% Discount, Every Time? 

If you are a member of the military, a teacher, or a senior citizen, you can quality for a 10-15% discount every time you shop!

#6 Buy Seasonal Items AFTER The Holidays

I know how tempting it is to buy new holiday decor before the holiday itself, I just did it! But if you wait until the day after, you can get seasonal decor for a MASSIVE discount. Watch for 60-70% off sales two weeks prior to the holiday, and then an 80% sale after the holiday hits.

#10 Never Shop Online

Seriously. Never. Shipping always costs a fortune, and you can’t price match items online. Always shop in store when you can, and have items shipped to a local store when shopping online.

#11 Shop on Sundays

Always shop on Sundays. It’s the best day of the week for Michael’s customers! Weekly sales always start on Sundays.

#12 Shop In January and February

These are the best months of the year to shop at Michael’s. Expect 50% off of home decor, 50% off of calendars and planners, and 50% off all things home storage.

    In your article about Michaels, on the last page it says not to buy craft machines at Michael’s because you can get them cheaper at Michael’s
    Just a little confused

  • SayWhatNow

    Hi, the number you posted that we text to join Michael is only 6 digits. It has no area code & if it’s a phone number it should 7 digits. I am a little confused.
    Thank you, for any clarification.

      Hi! It’s a short code specifically for signing up for things like this! So it’s not set up like a normal number because you’re texting their system and not an actual phone number.

    You said on the first page that I can take a competitor ad in to price match. If you live an hour from JoAnns or Hobby Lobby, can you still use the ad.

      Melody,

      I believe so! I live in a pretty urban area, and have never had problems when I take the ad across town. I say give it a shot, but maybe call in advance!
