CLOSED: Secret savings hack contest for April 20: Win a $25 Michael's gift card!

Emily Helwig Don't buy everything in one transaction. Buy one small item first. Michaels almost always adds a coupon to the bottom of your receipt. Sometimes that coupon will let you save 20% off your entire purchase or $5 off your next $25 purchase. Use that coupon to buy everything else! Sometimes that coupon requires you to fill out a short survey. Its easy enough to fill out from your mobile phone. So you can take advantage without going all the way back home.

Pair that Ulta coupon with manufacturers coupons and don't forget to submit your receipts for any qualifying products via the Ibotta and Checkout51 apps. To get started sign up for the Ultamate Rewards Program, which usually sends out a 20% off coupon to new registrants.
