During many of the sales, you don’t need a coupon, as the discounts are automatically applied. (But you can still use a coupon if you have it! See Tip #3.) You can find the deals both online and in stores.

Want another coupon? Sign up for the Color2U Mobile Alerts program by texting COLOR to ASKSW (27579). Once you give your consent to receive text messages, you’ll get a coupon good for $10 off a $50 purchase!

3. Don’t be afraid to ask their employees for a coupon or discount, even if you don’t have one.

In addition to asking for coupons, I’ll ask my store if they have any paint colors that were returned. It may not be the color I went in looking for, but it may become a newfound love. Plus these returned paint gallons are usually heavily discounted — like $10 off per gallon. When I said we’re never paying full price again, I meant it.

4. Military members always save 15% at Sherwin-Williams.

If you or your spouse is currently serving, is a reservist, or has served in the military at some point, you’ll save 15% on paints, stains, and painting supplies at Sherwin-Williams. To get your discount, just show your military ID at the time of purchase. Unfortunately, this discount can’t be combined with other offers, percentage-off coupons, promotions, discounts, or any special prices.

5. Buy your paint in bulk (if you’ll use it all) to save $1 per gallon.

For comparison’s sake, here are the average prices for Flat SuperPaint Interior Acrylic Latex Paint at Sherwin-Williams, depending on the size you buy:

  • 1 Quart $26.59

  • 1 Gallon: $69.99

  • 5 Gallons: $344.95

6. Use the Sherwin-Williams paint calculator so you don’t buy more than you need.

While it may be nice to have extra paint on hand for touch-ups, no one needs an extra five gallons of paint hanging around. Sherwin-Williams has a handy online paint calculator that’ll calculate the exact amount of paint you need. You can do a quick calculation, custom calculation, and even a deck calculation for both interior and exterior projects.

7. Can you use a Sherwin-Williams coupon at Lowe’s?

The product line at Lowe’s isn’t as high quality as the paint that you get from Sherwin-Williams directly, but if you’re like me and want to change up your walls often, this tactic will help you stay on budget. You can also check our Lowe’s coupons page to see current promotions.

TIP: When I did a deep-dive into Lowe’s vs. Home Depot, I actually found that Home Depot has cheaper prices for paint on the regular.

8. Use your Sherwin-Williams coupon to buy the color of the year.
