So, what are you doing for Memorial Day? Whatever it is, I suggest you fit a little time in to make it to your local craft store! In my neck of the woods, Joann’s and Michael’s both have some pretty good sales happening over the long weekend. BUT…on Monday Michael’s has a 25% off coupon good for your entire regular and sale priced purchase.
Why is this such a big deal? Because Joann’s and Michael’s both accept competitor coupons! Joann’s has a good sale over the weekend, but when you take the 25% Michael’s coupon to Joann’s, the prices just get sweeter! Here’s a few great deals I found for Monday:
The Paper Company cardstock packs, $2.39 each… with MICHAEL’S coupon, $1.79.
DCWV 12×12 paper, premium paper and cardstock stacks on sale for $9.99 each…with MICHAEL’S coupon, $7.50 each!
Cuttlebug A2 size individual embossing folders, $2.99 each…with MICHAEL’S coupon $2.24 each. (a little disclaimer here: you can use Joann’s coupons on non-electronic ProvoCraft items like Cricut relpacement pads and blades, or Cuttlebug folders. The MICHAEL’S coupon, says “no ProvoCraft”, so when using that coupon at Joann’s, they may or may not accept it.)
EDIT: It looks like Joann’s has Martha Stewart Crafts items (including punches!) on sale for 40% off. Combine that with MICHAEL’S 25% off coupon, and you should be able to pick up some goodies at an awesome price!
Recollections cardstock packs $2.50 each, with Michael’s coupon, $1.88 each. (a little more than Joann’s but they might have a specific color or pattern that The Paper Company at Joann’s doesn’t have.)
Most 12×12 paper and cardstock stack $11.99, with Michael’s coupon $8.99 (in case they carry a brand or design you want that’s not available at Joann’s.)
Martha Stewart Tools 30%. The Michael’s 25% off coupon doesn’t specifically exclude Martha Stewart items like they usually do, so you may be able to stack the sale with the coupon to get a good deal on a specific tool you’ve been eyeing. I may actually break down and buy a bone folder!
There are LOTS more deals…way too many to post!

Just to be on the safe side, it might not hurt to call your local store to make sure their managers will accept competitor’s coupons before you make a special trip.
