Craft store chain Michaels just announced some big changes to their loyalty program.

Before, when you’d sign up to be part of Michaels Rewards, you’d get special coupons, receipt-free returns, and invites to exclusive events.

Now, Michaels has turned this into a full-fledged loyalty points program, giving you no-kidding in-store credits for the purchases you make.

Here’s what they’re doing:

 

Get $5 in rewards for a purchase of $25 or more by Sept. 12.

This works whether you’re already a member of Michaels Rewards or if you’re brand-new to the program. (Sign up on the Michaels website or in store.)

 

Weekly reward specials and targeted offers will roll out in September.

Every Sunday, Michaels will introduce new promotions that will allow you to accumulate Rewards dollars — for example, spend a certain amount on a product and earn a determined number of Rewards dollars.

There will also be special offers specifically tailored to customers’ shopping habits.

 

Receive a $5 Rewards Voucher for every $5 in Rewards accumulated.

When you hit $5 — no telling how difficult that will be to accumulate just yet — you’ll be able to get a $5 Rewards Voucher for use at Michaels.

Think of it like Kohl’s Cash or Balance Rewards.

Get the vouchers, view current Rewards offers, and find out how close you are to your next voucher by logging in to your account at Michaels.com or on the Michaels app.

 

 

Enjoy another $5 off by taking the phone survey on your receipt.

You don’t have to be a loyalty program member to take advantage of this, but it’s always fun to stack savings at Michaels.

We’ve got plenty more Michaels store hacks where that came from.
