If you love crafting but hate the high prices that often accompany it, Michaels offers high-value coupons, mobile alerts and even free events to help you get into the DIY groove!

1. Coupons

In addition to being known for great crafting supplies, Michaels is also known for great coupons! Every week Michaels offers up coupons such as 50% off one regular-priced item, 25% off framing or 15% off sale items. If you tossed your current weekly ad (where coupons can be found), be sure to check their site for available coupons. From here you can print any offers you want, or save some paper and have them sent directly to your phone, which can be shown at the register. Michaels limits shoppers to one coupon per day per customer, and coupons may exclude select items such as As Seen on TV merchandise.

2. Mobile alerts

If you’re always on the go and worry that you may miss a hot deal, check out Michaels’ text alerts. These text alerts usually include the latest deals, offers and coupons and often alert shoppers to flash sales that may otherwise be easily missed. To receive text alerts from Michaels, text JOIN2 to CREATE (273283).

3. Store events

If you’re looking to learn a new skill or find a fun afternoon activity for the kids, be sure to check out Michaels’ list of store events. Michaels offers various events and classes each month for everything from cake decorating to painting to paper crafts and jewelry making. Sometimes these classes cost a small fee, but many times they are free and offer some great information and goodies to take home!

4. Smartphone apps

If you’re running in to Michaels but you forgot to check the ad or print your coupons before you left the house, don’t fret! With the Michaels smartphone app you can view the weekly ad, pull up available coupons, create shopping lists, and locate nearby stores. You can also use the QR Scanner within the app to scan QR codes in-store and get instant information about products and projects! The Michaels app is available for iPhone and Android devices and is free to download.
