  1. Hi, Michales does not offer Homeschool discounts anymore. They do offer discounts if you have your teaching certificate though.

      • Ok, I just got off the phone with Micheals Corporate Headquarters, they have a policy for homeschoolers that states they ARE eligible for homeschool discounts. They understand not all homeschoolers have an ID badge but a letter of intent or copy of homeschooling documentation from your local school district is all that is needed to get approval for teaching discounts. If you have a store that is not complying with the policy they may have an ill-informed associate so I would ask to speak with the manager. If that gets you nowhere I would gently let them know you had the corporate policy confirmed. As a last resort, I would email corporate headquarter’s and let them know your store has been less than helpful about this matter.

  2. The info about Michaels is good to know, our store is not cooperative at all, so I will definitely be trying your advice!
