How I Save Up To 70% at Michaels (Great For Holiday & Birthday Gifts)

Christmas present

Here is another post in my series on how I save money during the holidays!

I love Michaels for craft supplies, but you might not have considered it when you are shopping for Christmas gifts for friends and family. With the two simple steps I’ll share below, you can easily save up to 70% on gifts at Michaels!

And if you are looking for a gift for a Disney-lover, check out my guide to unique Disney gifts for adults, all under $15 each.

Step 1: Use Digital Coupons in the Michaels App

First of all, Michaels is almost always offering a 40% or 50% off coupon for one full-price item in their free app.

I suggest downloading the Michaels’s app, which includes coupons that can be scanned at checkout. I use the app so I never have to remember to print out a coupon and bring it with me!

If you buy more than one item, the coupon will automatically be applied to the most expensive full-price item in your cart.

Step 2: Pay With a Discounted Michael’s Gift Card

To save even more, I pay for my purchase with a discounted Michael’s gift card from CardCash.

I can save an extra 15 – 20% this way, and CardCash offers a 45-day money back guarantee on all of its cards.

I use gift cards from CardCash routinely and I’ve never had an issue with a card.

Using a combination of coupons and discounted gift cards, I’ve been able to save up to 70% off gifts at Michaels! They have a great selection of gifts for kids, from PlayDoh sets to building kits.

Brush Robot

For example, we are going to a birthday party for a little friend of my daughter’s this weekend. I was able to save 50% on the cost of this fun robot building kit at Michaels thanks to the coupon in the app.

That brought the cost down to $6.50, plus I used a discounted gift card to pay for the gift, saving me even more!
