Our Favorite Deals
Michael’s Black Friday specials tend to be similar from year to year. Here’s some of the things you should be on the lookout for when bargain hunting this year:
- Holiday decor — There’s no better time to start decorating your home for the holidays than after Thanksgiving. Michael’s makes it easy to come up with great ideas as they usually have several pages of festive decor in their ad, some typically at up to 70% off. Last year our favorites included Christmas ribbons at 70% off, ornaments and Christmas paper at 50% off, and buy-one get-one 50% off on select pre-lit wreathes and tree toppers.
- Christmas trees — With artificial Christmas trees becoming more and more realistic, it might be a good time to switch from live trees to artificial and help save some trees from being cut in the process. Last year Michael’s had 7-foot pre-lit Pencil trees on sale for $39.99, 7-foot pre-lit Willow Pine trees on sale for $79.99 and 7.5-foot pre-lit Kensington Pine Dual LED trees on sale for $99.99. All online tree orders of $49+ also included free shipping.
- Kid’s toys and activities — Michael’s always has something fun for the kids to get their creativity working. Last year all art sets made by Creatology were 60% off, all Crayola markers and crayons were 40% off, and all strung beads were sale priced at $2.99/set. They also had buy-one get-one 50% off on all science kits and Disney merchandise storewide (with 100’s of items to choose from).
- Frames — Michael’s is probably already your go-to store for all your framing needs. But when Black Friday comes around you can expect up to 50% off 1000’s of frames storewide. That typically includes galley and float wall frames, Christmas frames, poster frames and more. You can also expect to see display cases included in the same promotion.
