Giveaway: $50 Michaels Gift Card


UPDATE: Giveaway is closed. Winner will be announced soon!

Michaels has a weekly interactive page that they update on Sundays with their latest deals, coupons, craft ideas and more. For example, this week through 1/12/13, they are having a large BOGO sale featuring 25 items that you can see on their page.


Other things you can find there:

~Latest coupons that can be printed or sent via text to show in-store, saving on printer ink
~Step-by-step craft instructions with materials list
~Upcoming in-store events
~Listing of store hours and contact number

I love to shop there as it often gives me ideas of ways to be creative and try to make my own homemade items and/or gifts. This last year, I picked up several of the items that I needed to make my own personalized journals there. They had some great prices on scrapbooking items and quite a collection to choose from, as well. They also often have a nice seasonal area for each holiday and I’ve found some cute things as far as crafts, decorations etc.  In the past, I’ve picked up some of their holiday Wilton items on a great deal using one of their % Off Coupons that they regularly offer.

Michaels has been generous in offering me a $50 Michaels Gift Card for one lucky reader that wins this giveaway so that they can have fun shopping for their own creative ideas, as well!

    Micheal’s is my new go-to store. Sometimes craft items for my elementary aged boys…got a can of protective spray product for our dough ornaments recently. We also discovered our Micheal’s sells model rockets and engines. When using Micheal’s or competitors’ coupons big savings happen. They only like one coupon per transaction…sometimes my sons are customers to use additional coupons on the same visit!
