Get a rain check for sold out items

When your favorite product is out of stock, ask Hobby Lobby for a rain check. When the item is back in stock, Hobby Lobby will honor the price on your rain check. It’s worth noting that the retailer doesn’t issue rain checks when an entire stock of merchandise is on sale. Similarly, rain checks can’t be issued or redeemed online.

Ask for price matching

Hobby Lobby will price match items with stores like Michael’s and JoAnn’s. You have to adhere to the following requirements:

  • The product must be an exact match
  • Must have the competitor's physical ad
  • You can’t stack a coupon with a price match

Hobby Lobby doesn’t honor competitors’ percent-off ads, and it excludes Cricut, Sizzix, Silhouette, Cuttlebug, Holiday doorbuster ads, and clearance items from its price-matching policy. Also, Hobby Lobby doesn’t honor competitor ads online.

Shop during the home accents clearance

Maximize your savings by shopping at Hobby Lobby’s clearance section, where you’ll find bargains in numerous categories such as pints, fabrics, and art supplies.
