Best Michaels Black Friday Deals from 2012

Crafters and hobbyists had plenty to get excited about when the Michaels 2012 Black Friday ad leaked.  Last year’s 3-day sale was wisely spread out, starting on Thanksgiving and continuing through Saturday. “Daily Doorbusters” were offered each day in addition to plenty of 3-day specials. Although shoppers needed to plan ahead in order to take advantage of certain sales, steep discounts – some over 70% – made Michaels a worthwhile destination for gifts as well as decorations.

Additionally, coupons found on the front page for 20, 25, 30 and 50% off could each be used only during certain times over the weekend and came with a slew of exclusions. Coupons couldn’t be used on top of doorbusters, so getting the most out of this event required a little planning.

“50% Off” sales were a common sight throughout the ad. Check out just a few of the many items that were half off:

  • The entire stock of craft storage compartments
  • Over 150 styles of Celebrate It Christmas Themed Ornaments
  • Entire stock of Bead Gallery strung beads
  • Ashland brand Christmas stems, garlands, bushes, sprays, potted arrangements and floral wreaths
  • Handcrafted floral arrangements
  • Scrapbook albums, paper pads, stickers and embellishments
  • Crayola activity kits
  • Entire stock of all 6-ft and taller Christmas trees

Plenty of supplies and decorations were 60% off:

  • Over 160 styles of wall frames by Studio Décor
  • 700+ styles of Celebrate It holiday ribbon
  • Plastic rolling organizers
  • Ashland Christmas pinecones
  • Celebrate It Sparkling Creations glass ornament sets, trim kits and shatterproof ornaments
  • Recollections stickers and embellishments
  • 6-ft Pre-lit Northern Pine: $90 off at $59.99
  • Entire stock of custom framing

Some of the best discounts even topped 70% off:

  • 70% off over 700 styles of holiday ribbon
  • 7-Opening Collage Wall Frames: 75% off at $9.99
  • Ottlite LED Task Lamps: 70% off at $17.99
  • 13-opening collage wall frame: 71% off at $9.99

Again, certain sales were only available on a particular day, so it paid off for shoppers to figure out what they wanted to buy before picking a day to shop. The savings last year were particularly appealing for those looking to stock up on various frames and holiday-themed decorations. For shoppers in need of those items, Michaels proved itself to be a valuable stop on the 2012 Black Friday circuit.
