We just got a hold of Michaels’ Black Friday flyer and it looks like the deals match up pretty well to those from last year. Stores open at 4:00pm on Thanksgiving day and will stay open up until 2:00am, but you don’t have to rush out of the house as it picks up again at 7:00am on Friday and runs through noon. Best of all, this year you don’t have to bring in your coupons with you from the newspaper mailer as long as you can show it on your iPhone at checkout to the cashier. Or better yet, just do all your Black Friday shopping at michaels.com.
The deals at Michaels are time-specific so be sure you come with a plan. On Thursday evening and Friday morning up until noon, you can save 30% off your entire purchase with coupon. That’s a good deal as it’s valid on everything, including sale items. You also have the opportunity to pick up one of their many door best deals at up to 70% off. That includes a selection of Christmas ribbons, hand-made Christmas ornaments, and gallery wrapped canvases.
If you plan on mostly buying things that are not on sale or discounted, then you’ll be better off coming in-store or shopping online between noon and 10:00pm on friday as you’ll be able to save 40% off your entire regular-purchase-price order with your printed coupon in hand. And for those planning on just getting a single, more expensive item, then come back on saturday afternoon to save 50% on one-single regularly priced piece.
In terms of some of the specific deals, now’s a great time to replace any of your artificial Christmas trees. They have pre-lit 7-foot willow tree for just $89.99 after $140.00 off. If you need something a tad bit smaller, then you can pick up the 4-foot pre-lit pine tree for $19.99 after $30.00 savings.
