    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.

    If you have a smart phone you can get coupons on the phone - same as the ones that come in the mail, but you don't have to remember to bring them with you.
    So many quilts, so little time.

    Yes, the width is the same for both the prices...90" wide, 40 yards.

    According to the store I use, the VIP card does not count if a coupon has been used (doesn't matter if the item is on sale or not).

    Oh well, I do like the Warm & Natural. It has a nice feel to it, and I have seen beautiful silk quilts done by others using the same batting. These had a very lovely drape to them, even with intense free motion quilting.

    If you husband/friend is a vet, take him with you and there is also a 20% discount now thru Nov 12 I believe. I got a couple of Queen size WN battings for $36 and a Fairfield 80/20 Full size for $10. Coupons are the only way I can afford to purchase things from JoAnns as prices are so high.

    The price match is the store policy not the online store, so Joann,s locations have to match any place price if you see it cheaper show them the proof (the manager asked me for a proof of the price) and they will match it then the coupon was the cherry on top ;-)

    So you had to compete with online JoAnn's vs. brick/mortar JoAnn's...I think there is something wrong with that, BUT, the next time I plan on buying large quantity of something at JoAnn's I will definitely check online, print it out and THEN head for the store and bargain, if I have too.......

    I too really am beginning to get annoyed with their many coupons.....now they are getting more date specific too..and more specific as to what you can use it on...more so than before........wish there was some competition for that store available locally......

    I bought a 30 yard bolt of 90 inch Warm & Natural with my 60 % off coupon. They had a full bolt on hand. The price on a clip board they had said it was $17.99/yd. but it rang up as $14.99/yd. iwas happy with that.
