There are a few holidays each year when you can count on businesses offering a bunch of sales, discounts, deals and even freebies. Easter is one of those holidays. Of course, many stores are closed on the actual Easter holiday. Therefore, you need to take advantage of some of the deals in advance. So that you’re prepared, here are the deals and freebies for Easter 2021.
When Is Easter 2021?
Easter, like Passover, is always in the springtime. However, the specific date changes from year to year. In 2021, Easter is Sunday, April 4th. Some of the deals and freebies for Easter will be available only on this day. However, many of the offers are available in the days leading up to Easter. Make sure that you pay attention to when you can get each offer so you don’t miss out on anything.
Deals and Freebies for Easter 2021
You should check all of the places that you regularly shop to find out about deals and freebies for Easter. Here are the ones that we know about.
Discounted Easter Decor at Michaels
Head over to Michaels online and check out their Easter offerings. Click “sale” in the filter section to find only those decorations that are on sale. You’ll find discounted prices on bunny, egg, and floral themed decorations including wreaths, baskets, pillows, and general decor.
Moreover, Michaels advertises 20% off all regular prices on in-store purchases and online through just-before-Easter on 4/3/21. Therefore, if you want to buy Easter decorations that haven’t been discounted, go ahead and get them this way. Use coupon code 20MadeByYou on the Michaels website. They’ll also offer free ground shipping on orders priced $59+.
Easter Candy, Baskets, and Crafts at Target and Walmart
If you’re looking for some one-stop Easter shopping then head to Target. They have a terrific array of discounts and deals on Easter candy and other stuff that can go inside Easter baskets. Plus they have Easter crafts starting at just $3. They also have discounts on spring dining goods so if you need new dishes and linens, it’s a great time to get them. Additionally, they have discounts on kids’ Easter clothes.
Walmart has similar offers on their Easter page. In particular, they have some really cute Easter baskets and good prices, so you might want to check those out. The two stores are comparable in terms of their deals and freebies for Easter, so work back and forth between them to get the best price on the items you want most this year.
Cozy Clothes at Costco
It’s always worth it to check out the Costco coupon book to find member-only deals. The current coupon book is good through Easter Day, 4/4/21. Among many other deals, you’ll find some great discounts on comfy clothes for spring. You can get $3 – $5 off specific kids’ pajamas, women’s joggers and pocketed crew neck sweaters, and men’s pants and shorts.
Jelly Belly Candy
There are so many great places to get Easter candy. However, Jelly Belly is one of the best. Those bright colors are perfect for the springtime holiday. Head to the Jelly Belly website. Then go to “view products” and select “holiday” and then “Easter & Spring.” You’ll find all that they have to offer including some special seasonal deals. For example, get a discount when you buy the Sweet and Spicy bundle of gourmet chocolate and rose jelly beans.
Tip: Sign up for Jelly Belly rewards to earn points towards additional discounts in the future. Make those Easter sales purchases count!

What exactly does Mockplus offer? It’s a design and collaboration tool for teams. With more and more people working remotely, this might be just what you need to get a job done. It’s definitely not a traditional Easter purchase, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not worth taking advantage of the deal if it’s right for you.
