If you get a sunday paper, there is almost always a Michael’s flyer with a 40% off coupon for the week. Ask your relatives who get the paper to get them for you, too!

i usually get a flyer in the sunday newspaper and sometimes a second one on tuesdays with all the junk mail. it just depends on your location.

also, you can usually find a printable coupon online through a simple google search. and finally, sometimes they give you a coupon with your reciept for the following week when you make a purchase.

Hope This Helps

Go to the Michaels website and you can sign up to recieve their coupons in your email in box.  You can usually find their coupons on the web too using a simple Google search.

Good luck!

At my Michael’s, whenever I go in and purchase something, they print a coupon (usually 40% off one regular priced item) with my receipt to use the following week.

Michael’s gives out a TON of coupons! Newspaper is always good, so are the receipt coupons, AND you can sign up through their email list. They sent out 6 this week! Most are useless, though, but the 40% off one is in there. Love them!

I know that the Michael’s craft stores in my area are no longer doing the Sunday circulars in attempts to trying to go green.  So it’s the receipt coupon or the coupons they send you via email.

Joann Fabric is another good coupon to get. They still put theirs in the Sunday paper. Both stores will take the other stores coupons, if it is for an item they both sell. You can also use one coupon for each store when you check out. One thing about Joann’s, if you need fabric or lace by the yard, you can go to the counter and get the yardage you need. One coupon from Joann’s is good for one cut, so if you need several lengths, it is a good idea for you to have them cut one length, and then you can go home and cut the extra lengths.

Michaels also usually takes Hobby Lobby coupons as well, and vice versa if they are both actively seeking customers in the same area/city

You HAVE to sign up for their email list & they will send you the coupons. Also you can print out several & make several trips. You can also Google their 50% off coupon that are posted on coupon websites. They have worked every time for me. I have only be questioned on the 45% coupons, they only have 40% or 50%. Also whenever you buy anything there should be a coupon at the end of your receipt.

Michaels will take Joann fabric coupons too… FYI 🙂  I bought two packs of place cards and two x-acto knives… I had 4 50% off coupons (2 Michaels, 2 Joann) and therefore got everything for half off!

I’ll go on and be an outlier, but Michaels is a ripoff. Most art stores offer the same stuff they have at 1/4 the price. As their REGULAR prices.

Look out for art stores, ladies.


Just my 4 cents. :p

Almost every time you shop at Michael’s your receipt gives you 40% off the next item but it needs to be used in a specific time frame.  They almost always have 40% off in store on baskets or frames which can be very useful for the wedding.
