CHECK THE MICHAELS SALE BIN FOR TONS OF $1 ITEMS
Here's another no-brainer way to score a good deal without a Michaels coupon code. You know all those sale bins at the front of the store? Well, there are actually some pretty killer deals there, including crazy good sales on items you might not expect to find at Michaels. For example, they sell $1 hand soap that smells just as good as the stuff you'd find at Bath & Body Works.
In addition to the $1 bin, Michaels has $2, $3, $4, and $5 bins. You can stock up on school supplies, paint sets for the kids, home decor, and even home organization items in those bins, so take a quick peek before you head to the checkout. Our only word of caution: if you won't use it, don't buy it! A deal is only a deal if you really need the item.

Hi! So I couldn’t find a date when this was written, but I wanted to just let ya know that Michaels actually hasn’t been matching competitor coupons for a little bit now :/ It stinks! They often don’t have their 40% off one item anymore because of that either.
Thank you for letting us know that we needed to clarify that! They don’t accept competitor coupons anymore, but they DO still price match competitor prices, plus give you an additional 10% off. The 40% off coupon most likely went away because of Covid and the 20% off all regular-priced items somewhat took it’s place. But it could be making a comeback… We’ve heard talk of the 40% off coupon showing up in mailers.
