    Yes, they do Accept PayPal!  I used my Amex there a few days ago. Why is that with credit/debit... did I miss something?  I'm sweating. Please advise!

    Michael's is notorious for losing customer data and have two credit card breaches in recent years.
    The BOGO Free is interesting, but also saw their shipping cost for each 'oversized' item, ridiculous, that and the shadowboxes that looked interesting to me either were out of stock or had poor performance reviews (screws falling out, pieces of the frame popping off, etc).
    At least with Paypal you go to Paypal site to check out, and do not have to give your credit card to a company.

    Michael's has plenty of company...how about Target, TRU, Wendy's, Arby's, Yahoo, many Universities, US Dept. of Justice, IRS, Gmail, Snapchat, Xbox & PSP ISO, healthcare providers, almost every gas station in america, lol...our own computers!.  Just check your statements every month, and request new cards if  something is out of wack.

    Anything is hackable, but it just makes it that much easier when big box stores refuse to update the software (and corresponding hardware) with their POS computers and connecting systems.

    It's worth mentioning that these companies hand over their credit card processing to a third party, and those are the ones getting hit for info.
