    Most of my LQS's have punch cards with $10 off or 10% off after $150 spent

    The one I use has a punch card and when filled you can use it for $20 of free stuff. It also will honor the JoAnn coupon on Tuesdays. Works out pretty good.

    I have two LQS both about the same distance from my house. Niether has a frequent shopping program. And neither ever has a sale of any kind.
    One of them the prices are up to 12.75 for most batiks and the Kaufman fabrics.
    I do find it a bit of a "stone in my shoe" that after the years of patronage there is never any ... customer appreciation in the form a sale or program.... or even random act of appreciation. I have spent big $$$. So as much as I would like to support my LQS ... I have taken to the internet for a significant amount of purchases.
    I am sure one of these days the owner(s) will see me in the store and comment "gee , its been awhile" . At which point I will tell them .. after all the years of purchases .... why do I still just feel like only a wallet when I walk -in.

    I have one that does the punch card thing and another that gives a discount in your birthday month and sends out email coupons every so often.

    Lori, don't they even have a clearance section?

    I would think that every store, everywhere, has to have a clearance section. Otherwise, it would mean that their buyer always made PERFECT decisions! Gee, but that would be hard to do...
