You probably know which craft stores have the best quality and price on home decor and DIY projects, but if Michaels is your go-to, we have five Michaels tips to save you all the cash:


1. Use competitor coupons from Hobby Lobby and JoAnn’s at Michaels.

Michaels accepts coupons from Hobby Lobby, JoAnn’s, Ben Franklin and AC Moore as long as the competitor has a local store. Between them all, you should always have at least a 50% off one regular price item coupon (60% is better), and a 20-25% off your total purchase coupon.


2. Buy holiday decor for up to 80% off.

You can get holiday decor for pennies on the dollar. Every season, decor starts at 60% off the day after the holiday and goes up every week until it hits 80% off.


3. Get an additional 10% off when you price match.

If you find a current lower price on an identical item at any brick-and-mortar store or select online retailer, Michaels will price match plus beat it by 10%! Just make sure to bring in the ad, printout or a photo with you.

You may not stack a coupon on top of the Low Price Guarantee. Bummer!


4. Download the Michaels app so you always have a 40% off coupon.

Before you make any purchase, download the Michaels app for exclusive savings. We’ve seen app coupons for up to 60% off one item or 25% off your entire purchase.

Coupon use is limited to one type of coupon per product per day and one coupon of each type per transaction per day.


5. Sign up for the free Michaels Rewards program for exclusive discounts.
