Giveaway: $50 Michaels Gift Card – and Clearance Sale Info!


UPDATE: Giveaway has ended. Winner will be announced soon!

Michaels is having a big clearance sale over the 4th of July and running through Saturday, July 6th.

They will be offering up to 80% Off Spring/Summer Clearance, an additional 50% Off red tag items and an additional 25% Off blue tag items.

Michaels has been generous to offer me a $50 Gift Card to giveaway to one of my readers so they can pick up a few of their favorite items during a future visit.

Some of you may just think of craft items when you think of Michaels but I’ve picked up several great finds there, beyond crafts. Some of my best deals have been on holiday Wilton baking items to make some cute cookies, etc. for the kids. With school starting again not too long from now, you might just want to try to win that gift card to help pay for all those school projects that can add up to quite a bit of $$ throughout the year. I always make sure that I check out their dollar bins for additional savings, as well, for things that I can add to a “rainy day bucket” or to a gift basket set.

So you may want to take time out over the holiday weekend and check to see what great deals you may be able to find at your local Michaels store during their big clearance sale event!
