Michaels Shopping Guide
A couple of times per year, Michaels hosts a Make-a-Thon on its website. This promotion lasts approximately 14 days. During this timeframe, you’ll find informative blog posts and how-to craft guides. You can also find deals for each daily theme of the Make-a-Thon. You’ll discover resources to help you craft your own gemstone bracelet or arrange your own spring floral centerpiece. Learn to grow a little succulent garden for your kitchen windowsill, and much more.
There is a new trend every single day on Michaels’ website during the Make-a-Thon, such as “Rock Stars,” “Turn Up the Color,” and “Crafty Kids” to name a few. This event will give you tons of new ideas for projects to last the entire year so don’t miss it!
Looking for excellent discounts on your favorite craft supplies for your current projects? The best place to find Michaels’ coupons and promotions is under the “Weekly Deals” banner in the middle of their homepage. You’ll find all kinds of deals ranging from 50% off craft supplies from a certain brand or department to 3 for $9 deals on other supplies. These deals don’t last more than seven days. Snag these discounts while they last (sign up for the Michaels e-newsletter to stay informed on the newest weekly deals offered online).
Teacher, Senior, and Military Discounts
Michaels offers great discounts to select groups of customers. Teachers, seniors, and military members qualify for exclusive discounts. Teachers looking for classroom activities or their personal craft projects can save 15% whenever they shop at Michaels (some exclusions apply) when they bring in the teacher discount coupon. If you’re an avid craft enthusiast over the age of 55, you can get 10% off your Michaels order using the senior discount coupon. Meanwhile, military members with valid ID can receive a 15% discount on your Michaels orders with the military discount coupon.
Payment, Shipping, and Returns
When you’re ready to checkout, you can choose to check out with PayPal or go the secured checkout route. You’ll also be asked “Do you have a promotional code?” early on, and you can apply your coupon code in the box above the checkout button.
