Last week a post showed up on my social media news feed that said something about the 40% off coupons going away at Hobby Lobby, and I thought " no way, this has to be fake news, I'm not even going to read it".

Well, my friends, the posts keep showing up, and with extreme disappointment and anger in my heart, I am hear to tell you, this news is absolutely true.

February 28, 2021 will be the last day Hobby Lobby accepts the beloved 40% off coupons in-store or online. Why would they do this to us you ask? Here's the answer they gave a concerned customer on Facebook according to;

 By making this decision, we are intensifying our efforts to discount thousands of items every day. This will offer a better value instead of providing a discount on only one item with the coupon. It is always our intent to provide you with beyond compare service, great prices and the best selection.

Hearing there will be lower prices throughout the store softens the 'no more coupons' blow a little bit, but I'd be lying if I said I'm not skeptical. There's nothing quite like finding another home décor piece or candle holder that I suddenly need only because I can flash that 40% percent off coupon at register. The thrill of the savings will be ruined for me, but do not worry Hobby Lobby, I still need your plethora of craft supplies and I will be back. I just won't be as happy about it.
