work for you?
Crafting enthusiasts, lend us your ears... and get out your smartphones. Hobby Lobby's mobile app gives customers plenty of reasons to DIY with an organized roundup of weekly deals, opportunities for special savings and instant access to the store's popular 40% off coupon.
1. View it as the Hobby Lobby coupon app
Hobby Lobby shoppers love using the store's weekly 40% off coupon, and the mobile app keeps those savings right at your fingertips. You'll get instant access to this scannable coupon all week long, and you can use it to take 40% off one regularly priced item of your choice. Plus, you can re-use the same coupon once per day to stretch your savings even further.
You can also consolidate your shopping trips by encouraging friends and family to download the Hobby Lobby app, as well. The store limits customers to one coupon per person per day, so divide your purchase up among everyone in your group. This is the best way to score multiple items at 40% off without having to make separate trips throughout the week.
2. Find a Hobby Lobby location near you when you're on the go
You can either wait for a free shipping event, or you can use the "Store Finder" feature via the mobile app and head to your local Hobby Lobby store, thereby avoiding shipping costs altogether.
To use the feature, authorize the app to access your current location or just search by your city and state or zip code. This is especially handy if you're doing some out-of-town shopping and need to find the nearest Hobby Lobby.
3. Look up Hobby Lobby hours to shop two sales in one
Click on your preferred Hobby Lobby location within the app's Store Finder to see a listing of that store's daily hours -- and pay special attention to the closing time for Saturday night in particular.
All Hobby Lobby locations are closed on Sundays, but employees begin prepping the store for Monday's fresh crop of weekly savings right before closing time on Saturday night.
The store makes it a point to honor any sale signs that are posted, which means you can take advantage of the current week's sale prices while also getting first dibs on next week's deals.
4. Review the Hobby Lobby weekly ad for the best deals
Every Monday, Hobby Lobby releases a new circular filled with weekly discounts ranging from 30% to 50% off storewide.
This weekly ad is available on the Hobby Lobby's website or at the front of your local store, but you can also browse the savings via the mobile app.
This is especially helpful for timing your purchases, because Hobby Lobby regularly rotates its sales so that specific categories are reduced on a bi-weekly basis.
In other words, if an item you want isn't on sale this week, chances are it will be next week... and you'll be prepared to shop accordingly thanks to the app.
5. Check the balance of your Hobby Lobby gift card
It's easy to get a little carried away when you're wielding a gift card for your favorite store, but Hobby Lobby lets you check your gift card balance on demand via its mobile app.
Just enter the number located on the back of the card to instantly retrieve its current balance.
Tip: You can also buy a Hobby Lobby gift card for someone special either in-store or online (the app re-routes you to the store's official site to make any purchases.)
Gift cards can be purchased in any denomination ranging from $10 to $200, and you can redeem the cards online or at any Hobby Lobby store. You can even choose to send the recipient a special message letting her know that the gift card is on its way if you're so inclined.
6. Sign up for store emails (and special savings)
The Hobby Lobby app also includes a feature that allows customers to subscribe to the store's email list.
Sign up to receive the weekly ad, fun project ideas and special offers (like free shipping promotions) to save even more.
This is ideal for customers who prefer to shop online, because email subscribers regularly receive free shipping incentives. Look for these to show up in your inbox once or twice a month on average (and check out our Hobby Lobby shopping guide for previous savings examples).
7. Think outside the app for creative inspiration
The Hobby Lobby mobile app connects you to the store's social media accounts (i.e., Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram), which can help inspire your next crafting projects. You'll have access to a wide range of tutorials, as well as a list of supplies for each, so you'll save time and money getting everything you need.
Are you a loyal Hobby Lobby shopper, and do you use the store's mobile app to maximize your savings? Keep the conversation going in the comments.
