Get Ready for American Craft Week: Mobile Ways to Save at Michaels

Hey there, crafty mobile couponers! If you didn’t know already, this Friday begins American Craft Week (October 5-14). It’s a celebration that’s just in time, too, if you’re into home-made Halloween costumes (and you totally know you are). Not into the whole knitting thing? You still need decorations. And you might be in the market for hard-core baking accessories too. Craft store coupons are a must. Look no further than your phone.

You all know I love the Jo-Ann app and the Jo-Ann text messaging service. Great news! Michaels offers its smart phone savvy customers the same ways to save.

Download the Michaels App, STAT. It’s got all your standard tools: store locator, product finder, and in-store events calendar. But the best part is all the ways the app makes it easier to m-save. You’ll have access to weekly adds, featured deals, (multiple) mobile coupons, plus free patterns and project videos.

Want even moreĀ Michaels deals on the go? You can sign up for Michaels’ text message coupon service in-app. Incredibly easy. (You can also text “JOIN2” to CREATE (273283) to sign up.)

Make sure you register for Michaels Rewards, too. Unfortunately, the Michaels app doesn’t let you create a mobile version of your Rewards card (yet) and you have to sign up for the physical card in a Michaels store. But your card entitles you to 20% off your first purchase, plus discounts on your birthday. Once you earn gold status, you’ll receive exclusive coupons that are loaded directly onto your card, no clipping required.

PSSSST! If you coupon at Michaels, you’re used to the 40% off one item coupon. BUT, you can now snip a 50% off one item coupon in SnipSnap! This coupon is good for October 7-8 only, so make sure you use it up for a serious discount on one of your pricier holiday purchases.
