Michaels Stores / coupons

1 New Hartford, NY, United States Review updated:

I was enticed to come to the store with a spectacular coupon ("20% off everything including sale items"). Sadly when I arrived at checkout NONE Of my items qualified — they were "clearance". The cashiers tried to "teach" me the difference right there in the checkout line .. one of them shouting from another register ... really? Absurd.

I am tired of doing business with companies that try to pull you in with offers that really don't exist. To me things on "sale" and things on "clearance" are indistinguishable... as, I think they are with most customers. It reminds me if an experience with another retailer that advertised "all frames 40% off" except, of course, the one I selected. Why? It was on another wall was the explanation.

I love a bargain and I search for them ... I'm not trying to get something that I don't believe they haven't offered. I'm just tired of having the rug pulled out from underneath me at the cash register.

    Sale and clearance are 2 different things.

    To touch up on the previous reply, an item that is on clearance means the percentage off is higher than 60%. An item on sale will be below 60%. There is a difference between the two.
