That's my issue. That's my experience with Michaels.
I am sorry, but all my crafting/ stamping supplies are pretty much priced the same by the manufacturer. Stamps, paper, ink, ect...... using coupons always gives me a discount better than ticket price. At least were I live.

Be it Mikes, Joannes( pretty much don't shop there, store is empty of craft supplies here) hobby lobby, Archivers.

I am headed out to Archivers with coupons in hand today for some cutter bees scissors. Which is pretty much priced the same a cross the board at all craft stores-even for mikes-even at my old store that I used to work at.

I am sorry your experience at your Michael is not a good one. My I please make a suggestion. To you and anyone else that has a bad experience at a Micheals. Please, Please, Contact Michaels through email at Corporate office or their Facebook page.

I have to agree with this. The prices at the lss here are usually the same as the regular prices at Mikes, or Joanns or Hobby Lobby (for same items). So, for generic "stuff", I'll use my coupons at the big box stores. The lss owners are smart cookies- they don't carry a large inventory of what can be purchased at the other stores. They sell the more specialty items, are more than willing to do special orders for you and can show you how to use the stuff you think you have to have.

I try to get all of my "big basic tools" at Mike's. For example, I got my BigKick there, my heat gun, many of my punches, my Marvy's markers, several die sets, etc. Purchasing these there saved me a great deal of money.

On the other hand, I went to a garage sale this morning where a scrapper was selling 15 years worth of supplies. I got about $250 in brand new products for $21. Feels like Christmas!!
