Shop in bulks while waiting for Black Friday! Save some $$!
In 2019, Black Friday is on November 29th. Being one of the most popular arts and crafts retailer in Canada, Michaels participates in the event, offering a wide array of coupons and deals on its wares. Whether you’re looking for art supplies, seasonal decorations, hobbies materials or stationery, Michaels is the place to go!
Although Michaels hasn’t yet revealed the schedule for this year’s Black Friday event, we can suppose that it will be similar to those from 2018 and previous years. Last year, the sale started on Thanksgiving and lasted throughout the weekend. This would mean that most likely the event will start on November 28th and end on Sunday 1st.
The deals, of course! On a more serious note, you should remember to plan your shopping beforehand. There are thousands of items available across multiple departments at Michaels and it may be easy to get lost or distracted when all the prices will suddenly be slashed. Some of the best ways to stay in the loop are mentioned later in the article, so read on!
It is generally a good idea to join Michaels Rewards for exclusive promotions and events year-round, receipt-free returns and early alerts to be up to date with the latest offer. All of that may be really useful during your Black Friday shopping spree - plus, some of the offers may be only accessible to the Rewards members!
Mind that online sale starts much earlier than Michaels stores open. Last year, the event was launched online at 4 am EST, way ahead of the store’s opening hours. For this reason, it may be a better idea to secure your deals by shopping online but remember to check the shipping availability in your area.
Good news for all owl-types: Michaels stores will most likely remain open all the way until midnight! This will allow those who are late to the event to still have a chance to snatch a deal or two.
Some of the deals may be available only in select stores and on select days or even hours. The best way to learn more is by visiting the website, carefully reading the flyer or contacting your local store beforehand.
In-store pick up is a very convenient option if you want to save on delivery fees while enjoying shopping from home and don’t mind visiting your local store. However, you need to remember that you need to place your order before a set hour to give the staff some time to prepare it for you. In 2018, you needed to order by 3 pm on Thursday to have it ready after 7 pm; On the other days, customers were required to place their orders before 5 pm for same-day in-store pickup.
Black Friday discounts at Michaels vary wildly and widely but all of them are equally jaw-dropping! The reductions depend on the department and product itself, but customers can expect to save as much as 70% on their order. In addition to that, Michaels usually offers numerous gifts on purchase and buy-one-get-one deals. Some of the best ones from the previous year include:
- 50% Off Christmas Floral Wreaths
- 50% Off Frames and Shadow Boxes
- Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Camera for $59
- 70% Off Christmas Ribbons, Beads and Canvas
- 60% Off Craft Storage
The sale is mainly focused on the upcoming Christmas holidays, making Michaels the perfect place to stock up on wrapping paper, decorations, candles, lighting and, of course, gifts themselves! You can also find a wide range of Christmas trees at amazing prices, all of them at least 50% cheaper! Here are some of the last year’s ones:
- Pre-Lit Augusta Cashmere Pine Christmas Tree- 7.5′ for $89.99 (that’s a whopping $210 cheaper!)
- Pre-Lit Woodbridge Dual LED Pine Tree- 6.5′ for $59.99 ($140 cheaper than the regular price)
If that’s not enough, numerous baking supplies, photo frames, roll wraps, paper pads and other stationery items came in bundles - this way, you could stock up and save up to 60%!
Other items, like scrapbook cases, photo boxes, sweets, sketchbooks and more included a gift with purchase, which was either a select product or even a Michaels gift card in the case of more expensive orders. Remember that deals like that usually come in limited supply. First come, first served!
There are several ways to stay updated on deals from Michaels, and it’s always better to start checking them as early as at the start of November. We’ve gathered some of the best ones:
The newsletter is probably the most convenient one since you’re going to be automatically notified when a new promo is launched. Subscribe on the website and make sure to check your email regularly!
Once Black Friday starts getting closer, you should also start scanning the Michaels website and social media. Those channels are updated much more often than the newsletter.
Then we have the flyer, usually released one week ahead of the event. It includes a selection of the best promotions, all in one place. Last but not least, online deal sites like Picodi. Editors there keep it updated with the freshest and most attractive coupons and deals from Michaels and many other arts and crafts stores!
Michaels is brimming with deals year-round! If you haven’t signed up for the newsletter, you should do it to be the first one to learn about any upcoming offers. Weekly deals allow you to save up to 50%, and there are events held around all major holidays like Christmas, Easter, New Year etc.
Staples, MOO, Oriental Trading and Shutterly are all good choices and will definitely run their own Black Friday sales. You can also try your luck in popular general stores like Walmart or Costco, but remember that those may be extremely crowded.
