The best way to save the most money is knowing when Hobby Lobby has sales and when it doesn't. Sure, a good coupon can give you 40% off, but a nice sale can offer 50%.
Use a lot of coupons
If you have no sales coming up, then do your best to find that one and only coupon. It is good for 40% off one item once a day. You can always find it in the Hobby Lobby weekly ad. You can use the coupon online too. It expires every week.
Who can use the 40% off coupon?
The coupon says one person per day, not per family, so multiple people in your household can use it.
Is it cheaper to shop online?
Unlike many other retailers, Hobby Lobby has the same prices online and in the store, so it's just the matter of your preference and convenience. Online selection is a bit smaller than in the store, so yeah, in store is good.
Does Hobby Lobby offer free shipping?
You can find free shipping offers quite often, like 4-5 times every month, so never shop without it.
