$79.99 Heidi Swapp 12" Minc Foil Applicator & Starter Kit {YMMV}

So after posting my Star Wars foil project, I went to Michaels yesterday to pick up more foil for my Minc. I didn't notice until I got home that the prices I paid were less than the what the shelf tag had indicated. I went back this morning to take these pictures for y'all.

The local Michaels has put the Minc and some of the accessories on clearance but it seems that the actual prices are not as marked.

For example, the Minc foil applicator is tagged at a clearance price of $99.99 but it scanned at $79.99. That is an awesome price! The regular price is $149.99. If I didn't already have one, I would've bought it right away.

Some of the rolls of foil also rang up lower than the marked price. The 12" rolls that were marked on clearance for $6.99 actually rang up for $3.49 (reg. $9.99) while the 6" rolls that were not marked for clearance at all, rang up for $1.99 (reg. $5.99).

If you are looking to buy a Minc foil applicator, and if you have a Michaels in your neck of woods, it may be worth checking the store to see if they have the machine on clearance too.

Good luck!


  1. Lucky you! I was just at Michael's last night in MA and some Heidi Swapp was on clearance, but not the Minc stuff. I will have to check throughout the week and see if it changes. Thanks for the info!

  2. Thank you so much for that info. I have an appointment in a neighboring city today that has a Michael's. Also, there is a 20% coupon that is good today (1/27) from 4:00 pm until closing on both regular and sale price items. I am not sure if the minc is excluded, but I am definitely going to see if Michael's has one.

  3. Thanks so much for sharing the info! I was able to pick up a few items I wouldn't have known were on clearance if you hadn't posted!

  4. I got the clearance price on the shelf but not the additional bonus you got Jin!! Wish I had seen that coupon Rachel! So excited to give the minc a try!!!

  5. Hi Jin! (I don't know whether to thank you or not. This is my second splurge after buying the Curio off of Amazon from your price alert post earlier.) hahahah!! I was lucky to find a Michael's that had one left and I ended up buying the Minc yesterday. I was playing with it just last night. I was super excited to use the sample items that came with it, but after a couple of attempts, the foil wasn't adhering to the design. I was starting to get super frustrated and began to feel a bit suspicious because the box I received looked like it had already been opened. (Crap! Did I just buy someone else's return???) Then after I carefully read the manual, I realized that I was putting the foil on wrong. I was putting the foil face down instead of face up! Duh! I felt super stupid, especially since my two daughters were with me at the time. My 11 year old rolled her eyes because each time she kept asking me, "Mom, are you putting the stuff the right way?". In any case, I'm really glad I have this now. Next up is to stock up on foil! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for sharing these great buys.
