    If I have (3) 50% off coupons can I use them ALL in one trip?? If I get 3 different cuts of fabric can I use one on each cut??

    The most common answer is no (it's in the fine print ALWAYS). But there are a couple of cashiers at a Joann's I know who will scan any coupon and are happy to scan more than one. Just check the coupon dates and be sure they're good when you're going. And of course you can always go up to the register with two or three things and if they wont do more than one coupon you can say you don't want it, leave come back in and buy it anyway. That doesn't work so well for cut fabrics though.

    If someone could explain the JoAnns coupons to me I would really appreciate it. I have read the fine print but when I try to use my 50% coupon they ALWAYS say sorry, that is already 10% or 30% off.

    How do you really use them? I have yet to make it work.

    You can use them all but not at the same time. Get one thing at a time, check out, come back and get your item, check out, etc.

    Mary-it used to be that if the item was on sale and you had a coupon, they would put the item back to regular price then you could use the coupon. Now, if it's on sale, you can't use the coupon.

    Which can I just say sucks? You have to wait to buy something that is 10%, 20% off, just so you can use the coupon. :(

    Lets just say the ones at my JoAnns aren't that helpful. I just go to Hancock. It's easier.

    You can use multiple joann's coupons if they are from different sources....one from their mailing flyer, one from the newspaper, that kind of thing. But you can't use both from the newspaper on the same transaction/visit or both from a mailing on the same transaction/visit.

    Last year Joanns changed their policy for coupons and when youcould use them - used to be that even on sale items they would revert the price back to the original and give you the coupon discount. I'm assuming they were losing a lot of "browsing" buying that way since everyone knew they could go straight to their item of choice and get it for 50% (as it was then) off.

    Now, they will only allow coupons on non-sale items, which is honestly the way that the vast majority of other retailers do it. Now, not only do they usually sell items at a smaller discount (even though at least once a month they rotate through their 30 - 40% discount on quilting notions/cutters/etc) but they get buyers to browse the store looking for an item to purchase with their coupon!

    It's a good deal whichever way you look at it, in my book!

    The JoAnns that I go to lets me use all of my coupons on one trip!
    Most of the time, the stuff I need is already on sale so I just pass them out to other shoppers...
