In 1984, with only 16 Michaels stores located primarily in Texas, Michaels Stores, Inc. became a publicly held company. Shortly thereafter, we embarked on an aggressive national expansion program, and by 1995, through a series of new store openings and acquisitions, we had increased our holdings to over 500 stores, more than tripling our size to become the largest arts and crafts specialty retailer in North America.

How to Save at Michaels
Take advantage of both Michaels in-store coupons and Michaels promo codes if you’re shopping online. You’ll often find coupons for 20% off at Michaels, but if you see Michaels coupons for 50% off, be sure to take advantage of them. You will also find a Michaels weekly coupon offering 40% off any one regularly priced item. The retailer price matches with competitor coupons too, so be sure to shop around.
Browse the Michaels sales ad. You’ll find that Michaels’ sales are frequent and generous, with many items regularly marked 40% to 50% off.
Download the mobile app. Using the app, you can access Michaels mobile coupons and get craft ideas, as well as a map for finding items within the store.
Get 15% off your entire purchase if you’re a teacher or in the military. Additionally, seniors can earn 10% off their purchases.
Shop in the store if you can. With their price matching policy and the additional cost of shipping, you’re almost guaranteed to save more if you shop in person. It also means you can take advantage of the store’s other services, like custom framing. (As a bonus, you can frequently find Michaels framing coupons.) Of course, you’ll want to remember to bring any Michaels printable coupons you have (or use their mobile coupons).
Look for orange price tags on items around the store. These items are on their final markdown, so it’s a good time to buy. Alternatively, avoid items with green tags, as these are typically new items that haven’t been marked down yet.
Sign up for the Michaels Rewards program. You’ll be sent exclusive Michaels coupons, get early access to sales and enjoy receipt-free returns.
