Giveaway: $50 Michaels Gift Card – and Savings Event Info!


UPDATE: This giveaway has ended. Winner will be announced soon!

Michaels is having a huge savings event with some of the lowest prices of the season and special daily deals. The event is going on through September 21, 2013.

The sale features a wide variety of items, including Michaels’ custom framing, craft supplies, home accents and seasonal décor. You can also get 50% off a regular priced item with their latest Michaels Coupon.


One of the items that I noticed was discounted was their t-shirts, marked down to $1.99! You might be able to make a cute craft project or Halloween costume for the kids with one.

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. 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 and check to see what great deals you may be able to find at your local Michaels store during their big savings sale event!
