MICHAELS COUPONS – ONLINE
Thanks for visiting us while in your search for Michaels online coupons (and Michaels Coupons in general!). We emphasize “online” because Michaels stores now accepts coupons via smartphone. So if you’re actually going to Michaels, then you’d best be served to take your phone and just flash the online coupon to the Michaels sales person.
You may wonder why we put up this website when you can go a and look up the weekly coupon in your local newspaper. Well, truth is, the problem is that many of us no longer get a newspaper. We want coupons that are automatic or at the minimum online on the internet.
This of course begs the question as to why we would put up this website about Michael Coupons. Well frankly the reason is because we found that it is not as easy as you would think to find Michael’s coupons. We actually looked everywhere and were sidetracked to a variety of stores and product offerings. What this means is that when people are looking for Michaels coupons they oftentimes end up on Michael’s competitors websites without knowing it. Or sometimes they even end up buying things from eBay or Amazon.
That is the purpose of this site. I was looking for Michael’s coupons and could not find any. I went so far as to try to get the cashier at a Michaels to just use on of the coupons from the ad on the display in the store. Unfortunately, this did not work. And double unfortunately, I was buying a couple hundred dollars worth of stuff. Once I got home I was trying to see if I could finds a coupon and then see if the store would give me a retroactive refund for the savings if i used a Michael’s Coupon.
I searched all across the internet only to end up on a lot of websites like retailmenot that had coupon codes but no real coupons for use at the store. Actually many of the codes I saw on their site also mentioned they were not verified or were not guaranteed to work.
Well this drove me crazy until I finally happened to the deep place within the Michaels website where you can find printable coupons. I also found out, weeks later, there is another page on their site where you can oftentimes see deals.
It is a print of their weekly ad. Hover your mouse over the coupon you want and click. This will lead you to a place where you can actually print that coupon. No more newspaper subscription needed. Why they do not put this up in a more prominent place on the site I do not know. But anyway, that is why we built this little informal site.
While you are there you might also want to look around at all of the wonderful resources they have available on their website. I especially like the way it is easy to use and not too “busy” or “cluttered. The only thing I do not like is the pictures that come in and then fade out. I know they are trying to communicate many ideas, but 1 at a time. But I hate it because I am always just getting interested when the picture disappears.
Anyhow their site covers all the store departments. It also has a lot of ideas, projects, and things you can do with supplies from Michael’s, and of course using your Michaels coupons. In a time when the internet is full of advertising everywhere you go it is nice to find a site that you can explore, find ideas, and then put it all together. That is so rare an experience from so many other websites.
I suppose the same is for this Michaels Coupons website but the fact is I already delivered the goods. I showed you exactly how to get those ever elusive Michael’s coupons and how to save a lot of money. In the future I think I will turn this site into a Michael Coupons blog where I buy everything for an arts and crafts project with some coupons, do the project, and then share the results. Shoot, maybe even Michael’s themselves will sponsor some of my adventures. OK that is more of a dream. But as a die hard arts and crafts person I can dream can’t I?
A little info about our favorite store
Michaels is almost a $4 billion dollar company and is by far the largest arts and crafts retail chain store in the United States. They have a stated goal of “inspiring creativity” and we think that is clearly manifested when you go into a store or see how they have designed their website. The fact that they have community events and classes in every store shows that they are community oriented and are dedicated to making the lives of their customers better.
This is an interesting point to make. For example take furniture. When you go to a furniture store it is almost like they are doing you a favor by selling you furniture. But they way Michaels is set up it is like they are trying to help you have fun, make life better, and even make your parties and entertaining better. We suppose this is why they are still in business in spite of recent declines in consumer spending.
It is also interesting to note that Michaels owns Aaron Brothers stores. When you think of it that makes sense because Aaron Brothers also has a similar aggressive newspaper weekly coupon advertising program. We imagine our next site will be Aaron Brothers coupons. We do not think so . This one was hard enough.
One last fact that you may find interesting. 90% of the Michael’s store customers are female. We wonder if that reflects the method of advertising their Michaels coupons? Well either way 63% of those women are married and 46% of those are between 35 and 54. Interesting demographics I think.
Future Of Michaels-Coupons.com.
As has been said we do not know what else to mention on a site about Michaels coupons. We think in the future I will follow up with what we wrote earlier and write about the projects that we (we’re Michaels and craft enthusiasts like you) do from Michaels and that we used Michaels coupons to purchase. For example we save 20% regurlarly on some picture framing we had them do. It was great to take some old trinket memorabilia and have it mounted in a raised glass frame. Very nice and extremely well done.
We’re open to ideas. If you want pictures of parties completed with Michaels supplies or simply come tips and tricks on how to make things from Michaels. Let us know. We’re open to suggestions and will consider whatever you throw at us.
4th OF JULY CRAFT IDEAS
Independence day is fast approaching and it’s a great time to do crafts (especially with your Michaels coupons). Here are a few ideas you can use to create some crafts that show your pride for your country.
First, it goes without saying that red, white, and blue will be the colors of choice. One thing you can do is create a banner to hang at your front door, window, or in your home to celebrate the 4th of July. Especially if you plan to have a part and or barbecue.
A nice little touch without such a heavy emphasis on the 4th of July (not that there could ever be a heavy emphasis on 4th of July). You’ll need some red, white and blue crepe paper, some news paper, scissors, glue stick, and craft trimming shears.
Fold the paper as you would in making a paper hat: fold at each corner, alternating until you make a miniature hat.
Use glue stick to secure.
Add bits of red, white and blue crepe paper and sparkles to taste. SEE HERE… FOR DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS…
HOW TO CROCHET
Crocheting is an art (and craft) that is one of the oldest hobbies. As you can probably tell, its name is of French origin (“croche”) which means “hook”. People with little skill in crocheting can be up and stitching in no time with a few basic techniques. Intricate laces and designs for tablecloths, doilies, scarves and other household furnishings, as well as various fashion items can be learned. Why? Because there’s simplicity in crocheting that makes this hobby super easy, and super relaxing. We’ll begin our series on crocheting by giving you some of the terms of the trade.
Abbreviations Used in Crochet
SI st slip stitch
Sc single crochet
Dc double crochet
Hdc or sdc half or single double crochet
Dtr double treble
Tr tr triple treble
Pc st popcorn stitch
Lp st loop stitch

MICHAELS CRAFTS FOR KIDS
One fun thing to do is to host a craft birthday party for your kid. It’s a whole lot of fun and it’s also a great way to encourage the creativity in your child. Besides, what kid do you know that doesn’t like making things!
QUICK DECORATING TIPS
Start With A Theme — Irregardless of what craft or decorating project you’re working on, keep in mind that it’s ideal to start with a theme. A color, or a particular style (such as French, or Italian design) should be on your mind. That way, you can build your elements without guessing as you go along. Now some crafters like to sort of experiment, but even then, having a theme in mind will allow you to experiment with less time wasted. In the end though, if you’re pretty creative then go for it! But remember the word theme. Doing this will give you a starting point, and will help to guide you through the decorating or crafting stages.
