Michaels released its Black Friday ad on November 19th, and it's packed with coupons and doorbuster deals sure to inspire the makers among us. And for the especially enterprising, major discounts on home decor, toys and Christmas decorations could make Michaels a one-stop Christmas shopping destination.

Michaels 2020 Black Friday Ad Review

Michaels Black Friday Doorbuster Deals

These deals, like most others featured in the ad, are good from Thanksgiving through Saturday, November 30th. However, keep in mind that while coupon stacking is every Michaels shopper's bread and butter, doorbuster deals cannot be combined with a coupon.

That means that even those “Entire Purchase Including Sale Items” coupons will not lower the prices on these items. Take that into consideration while comparing prices with other stores.

Michaels' Black Friday Coupons 

In addition to the general Black Friday sales, Michaels is offering a variety of time-specific coupons that can be used throughout the weekend (but again, not on doorbusters). Figuring out which coupon works best with the items you want to buy should be a key part of your shopping strategy.

  • 30% Off Entire Purchase Including Sale Items. Online promo code THANKS119T. Valid 6 p.m. until midnight on Thursday, November 28th.
  • 25% Off Entire Purchase Including Sale Items. Online promo code THANKS219T. Valid 7 a.m. to noon on Friday, November 29th.

  • 25% Off Entire Purchase Including Sale Items. Online promo code THANKS519TValid 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, November 30th.
  • 50% Off Any One Regular Price Item. Online promo code THANKS619T. Valid noon to 10 p.m. Saturday, November 30th.

Christmas Decoration Deals

The moment you absorb your Thanksgiving dinner, it's officially time to start planning your Christmas decorations. Ashland Christmas trees have some of the biggest Black Friday discounts at Michaels, with many marked up to 70% off.

Christmas Trees 

Gift Packaging 


Art Supplies and Activities Deals

Given the wide breadth of hobbies covered by Michaels' inventory, it's impossible to accurately capture all of the discounted supplies and activities. However, some previous best sellers and items with the deepest discounts on Black Friday include:

Fine Art Supplies 


Toys and Activities 

Papercraft and Scrapbooking

Framing Deals

When it comes to picture frames, we recommend you focus on the prefabricated frames during Black Friday. The 70% off Black Friday custom framing discount comes back several times a year, and there's usually a longer wait time around Christmas. If you can stand to hold out a little longer, you won't need to deal with the Christmas rush.

When Was the Michaels Black Friday Ad Released?

  • November 19th, 2020

Though it came a few days later than usual this year, Michaels typically reveals its Black Friday ad around one to two weeks before Thanksgiving. This year was no exception with a release date of November 19th.

What Time Does Michaels Open on Black Friday and Thanksgiving 2020

  • Michaels will open at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day and 7 a.m. on Black Friday. 

Last year, Michaels was open from 6 p.m. to midnight on Thanksgiving Day and from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Black Friday. Specific store hours may vary depending on location, but the ad tells us that in-store deals will begin at on 6 p.m. Thanksgiving Day and 7 a.m. on Black Friday.

When Does the Sale Begin Online?

  • The ad does not specify if there are special online shopping hours.
  • Use Buy Online, Pick Up In-Store alongside or instead of shopping in store. 

Many items are already on sale online, but it's safe to assume that the rest of the deals will go live at the same time as they do in stores.

Michaels also recommends taking advantage of its their Buy Online, Pick Up In-Store system to streamline the shopping process. As long as you place your order within the hours printed in the ad, you can totally buy your Christmas tree while you’re still in a food coma on the couch and pick it up the next day.

  • Thursday Buy Online, Pick Up In-Store | Order by 3 p.m. for pickup after 7 p.m.
  • Friday and Saturday Buy Online, Pick Up In-Store | Order by 5 p.m. for same-day pickup

If you also shop in-store after picking up your Buy Online, Pick Up In-Store order, you can even take advantage of time-sensitive coupons. You can also double up on Regular Price Item coupons while still technically adhering to the coupon policy.

When is the Best Time to Shop?

  • Shop in-store Thanksgiving night or late afternoon on Black Friday to avoid the crowds
  • Opt for Buy Online, Pick Up In-Store starting Thanksgiving morning (or the morning your desired item goes on sale) for high-demand products

Thanksgiving night is usually low-key at Michaels. On Black Friday, the crowds usually die down by lunchtime. There is also a special selection of Saturday-only doorbusters if you're willing to wait.

Given the specific time breakdowns of each individual coupon, you should plan your shopping trip around the types of items you want to buy. For doorbusters, there is no particularly advantageous shopping window. However, if you're planning on getting a lot of sale items, you'll save the most if you shop on Thanksgiving evening or in the morning on Black Friday and Saturday. Plan on buying expensive regular-price items with the 40% off coupon available on Friday afternoon.

More Ways to Save at Michaels on Black Friday

  • Utilize Buy Online, Pick Up In-Store. This will save you some time and stress so you can be of a sound body and mind for your shopping experience (or skip the store altogether).
  • Sign up for Michaels Rewards. In addition to the special perks granted to Rewards members (receipt-free returns, plus special deals and discounts) you also get access to every current coupon. You can streamline the process even further by downloading the Michaels app.
  • Don't be fooled by X items for $Y sales. Even if the sale is advertised as a bundle, you can always just buy one item and still get the discount. 
  • Take advantage of the Michaels price-matching policy. If you find the exact same item at a lower price at one of Michaels' eligible competitors, it will match the price and tack on an extra 10% discount. This will not work on clearance or doorbuster items.
  • Cash in on all applicable discounts. Michaels offers a "15% off regular price and sale purchase" discount for teachers and military, and 10% off for seniors. You can receive your discount by showing a corresponding photo ID. Alternatively, redeem it automatically by registering your status on your Michaels Rewards account.
