Hobby Lobby has a decent price matching policy. They price match their biggest competitors, though only if you shop in store. But there are some nuances. Online price matching is pretty much nonexistent, no matter which angle you look at it from. And there are also several product and sale exclusions.

On top of their price matching policy, Hobby Lobby also offers a fair price adjustment policy. This is especially advantageous, as half the store seemingly goes on sale every other week, so you’re likely to catch a break on pricing. And without any Hobby Lobby coupons left in the world, that's helpful.

Hobby Lobby will do price adjustments on in-store orders for up to 14 days after purchase. This is particularly great because Hobby Lobby tends to offer sales in 2-week or 3-week cycles on a lot of products.

You can optimize this policy by getting to know the Hobby Lobby sales schedule.

There is a way, though it’s indirect. Let’s say you bought some scrapbooking supplies at Hobby Lobby. A week later, you saw those same supplies selling for $5 less at Michaels.

While you wouldn’t be able to claim a price adjustment per se, the Hobby Lobby return policy does give you a 90-day window to make returns. You could simply return the supplies, then purchase them anew with the Michaels ad in hand, claiming a price match.

Does Hobby Lobby issue rain checks?

It depends.

Hobby Lobby will issue rain checks if your store has a sale on one specific item. But it won’t if the sale is on for an entire item category.

For example, if you are purchasing beading supplies and the store has a sale on Teal Glass & Bone Bead Strands, but they are out of stock, you can claim a rain check in that situation.

But if the sale is for 40% off all bead strands, you won’t get a rain check, even if the Teal Glass & Bone Bead Strands are included in the sale.
