Shop for Hobby Lobby’s Easter items only when they’re on sale.
Hobby Lobby has no shortage of Easter stuff — I found activities, toys, apparel, baskets, eggs, crafts, kitchen items, party supplies, and decorations all themed for the season. But paying full price for these items is a rookie move. Let me teach you the secret.
Since the Hobby Lobby 40% off coupon is long gone, we have to rely on their sales to save. The good thing is, Hobby Lobby has great sales. So if a product you’re eyeing isn’t on sale now, you’ll most likely catch it on sale within the next few weeks. That’s why you need to make the Hobby Lobby sale schedule your new best friend.
You can expect their Easter Party, Crafts & Decorations category to always go to 40% off the last week of February. (These dates will vary based on when Easter falls. If it’s an early Easter, expect to see this price drop until the holiday.) Then the Easter items go to 75% off the Thursday after Easter, then 90% off the week following the holiday.
Shop the second week after Easter to save up to 90% on Hobby Lobby Easter clearance.
Like we’ve said, paying full price at Hobby Lobby is a no-no. If you’re hoping to stock up on Easter goodies for the following year, you can shop in store after Easter to hunt down some pretty sweet savings.
As of today (April 17), we’re already seeing Hobby Lobby Easter items hit 90% off, and we’re only eight days past Easter. Remember that these deals are in stores only.
Here are some of the items we spotted in our store for 90% off:
Score 75% off starting the Thursday after Easter.
The very next day after Easter, Hobby Lobby had Easter clearance for 66% off. By Thursday, the clearance hit 75% off. We saw tons of deals on Easter party items, crafts, decor, and fabric.
Only buy plastic Easter eggs at Hobby Lobby when they’re on sale.
Hobby Lobby isn’t always the winner for plastic Easter eggs when we do the math on the price per egg. If you’re looking to buy plastic eggs at Hobby Lobby, always make sure they’re on sale — or else you’ll overpay.
Even with them on sale, don’t forget to shop around. For example, I found a 6-pack of sports-themed plastic eggs on sale for $2.39 (regularly $3.99) at Hobby Lobby, but the same eggs as a 6-pack at Dollar Tree were only $1.25.
Also, I saw a 24-count of mini Easter eggs at Hobby Lobby for $1.19 (regularly $1.99), or you could get a 24-count of full-size eggs (with one golden egg) at Dollar Tree for just $1.25.
Shop in store to avoid Hobby Lobby’s shipping fees.
Getting Hobby Lobby free shipping is pretty much impossible. Occasionally we’ll see free shipping on orders over $50, but they never have a “free shipping on any order” deal.
At Hobby Lobby, shipping starts at $7.95 for orders of $0.01 – $15 (after discounts are applied). And the fees increase all the way up to $999.95 for orders of $9,999 or more. For example, if you spend $100 online, you’ll pay $14.95 for shipping. Here’s their full list of shipping fees.
