If you spot a bargain on art supplies, etc? Post it here.

When going through this thread, just realise that most of the items here are time sensitive, so check the dates, etc.

Posts will be deleted here every week or so to get rid of expired bargains.

For anyone who doesn't already know this, you can go online to Hobby Lobby and Michaels and print off coupons.  Hobby Lobby usually has a 40% off on 1 item and that is on a regular basis.  Michaels, I believe has several different options for discounts.  They are all printable.

Micheal's also has a 'Senior Citizens Day' as well. If you're a old fart like me, Tuesdays will get you an additional discount across the board.  O0

If anyone has local fellow painters, think about combining orders with friends for free shipping, etc. on sites such as Jerry's Artarama, Cheap Joe's, Dick Blick and possibly many others.  Those are here in the states. Also, combining orders really helps on mat board since you have to buy 25 or so per order.

Just did a little comparison shop between Cheap Joe's and Dick Blick. Example: 1/2 pan Alizarin Crimson is almost US$2 less at Blick!
Might want to check prices before you order.   O0
