    Different prices for Warm & Natural Batting

    I checked online to verify the cost of the 40-yd roll of Warm & Natural batting. The online price is $449.99, so I figured I could use the 60% coupon (it was for in store only, good today through the 12th) to buy it in the store. When I got to the store, there was a full roll available. You can imagine my surprise when the ticket showed th full price at $599.99 (before the discount)! Still a better deal at 60% off in the store than than the online price, but it is still extremely annoying to see such a difference between these two prices. Wondering if anyone else has bought the same batting and had the experience I had.

    FYI, I asked if I had ordered it from the store, which I would have if it had been out of stock, would shipping be charged? The answer is that if you are willing to wait until it comes from the warehouse (2 to 4 week wait), the shipping is free. That is, if you pick it up at the store. If you want it right away, it may take a week and shippping will be charged even if you pick it up.

    I saw the earlier posts, but none mentioned the difference in the prices, if my memory serves me right. I did use the 60% coupon which brought it down to $239.99 from $599.99. It would have been nicer to pay $179.99 from $449.99, though.

    This is an old retail trick called "Mark it up to mark it down". I'm so sick of Joann's games with their coupons! However, at today's prices, one has to do what one has to do.

    I thought i saw a little comment that the price online reflects the 10% discount for buying the whole bolt but that doesn't come to 100 dollar increase

    Could just be the discount for the ease of throwing the boxed bolt to the shipper from the online warehouse.

    Almost no labor or tracking or inventory or shipping costs for Joann's.

    I'm not saying each bolt costs $150 to get to the store and cut by staff, but it's not zero either.

    Anyway, I think the $6/yard is a great price, and I can buy as much (or as little) as I want/need.

    Yes Joanne's is really annoying with their coupons, I prefer a price is a price. We have to save those coupons make sure we don't leave them home etc.

    I know exactly your frustration but here is what I did. I printed the page that shows the price online and went to Joann,s local store and let them price match (that's their policy) and I used my 50% coupon which I had at that time so first they went down to $450 price and used 50% coupon not bad ha????
    I am going to try to use the 60% this time and see ow much the manager will like me (btw she is crappy with both employees and customers)
    Good luck

    If you get the VIP card, you get an extra percentage off after sales and coupons are applied. Just bring in your guild card, or as I did, bring the AQS card you get when you subscribe to the magazine and become a "member" of AQS.
