Thread: another issue with Joanns coupon

    My small iron that I use next to my sewing machine quit working, and I really need to replace it. I wasn't crazy about the one I had, but it worked and was better than nothing. Joanns carries the rowenta travel iron for 54.99, way too much for me, but I had a 40% off coupon, if it wasn't on sale. Yay, it wasn't, BUT, in the fine print, irons are excluded from using the coupon. I thought for sure someone here on the board had said they bought an iron using a coupon. Is there a chance that a coupon will come available sometime that will allow me to use it for an iron, or are all their coupons basically the same? Thanks for your help.

    In my experience they are all basically the same. The exception may be the ones that they issue a few times a year that are 15% off your total purchase or something like that.

    Bummer about the iron.

    I think I read someone using a coupon for Bed Bath and Beyond for a Rowenta -theirs are 20% if you use it soon and then 10% if you use it later- sooner is usually a couple of weeks after the coupons come in the mail and the later is about a month after that- I think

    Joann's coupons can't be used on anything by Fons & Porter.
    I assume they won't let them discount their items.

    Although you cannot use a JoAnn's coupon on irons...they do put the irons on sale for 25% off a couple of times a year. They also do a sale a couple times a year for $20 off of the irons.

    One thing I just discovered is that JoAnn's honors competitors coupons. This is good because if you have a Michael's craft ftore or Hobby Lobby that has goos coupons you can use them at JoAnn's. I had one that was good for 40% off entire purchase, including sale items. Check for those locally to see if one may help you!

    Before you spring for that Rowenta iron, google "Rowenta iron consumer reviews"......they've been getting lots of bad press for quite a while now.

    You might try going to a thrift store for an iron. I found mine for $5. It's not a Rowenta, but it does the same job as one.

    I went through 4 Rowentas before I finally gave up on them (they leaked, badly) and bought a Bosch. It's the best iron I've ever used.

    Bed Bath & Beyond should honor any coupon for up to 2 years after expiration. I recently found this out and used some expired coupons. :)
    I also found out recently that Chick Fil A is the same way - they honor their coupons anytime. I used one last night with a 2008 date on it and they didn't care!

    the only iron I was able to get with my cupon was the Clover one for applique with the small triangle shape on the end of the iron wand.

    We just purchased a Shark at Target and love it. Initially we looked at Rowenta, but saved $25 and bought the Shark. It does an amazing job and so far impressive.

    I looked at a GE iron for $11.99 at Target that I was thinking about getting for using in my sewing room as my present one is very very old. Anyone know how GE irons hold up in the long run?

    I only have the small rowenta and never put water in it but I also read about all the leaky ones so I have a B&D for my big iron (and I don't put water in it either).

    I go to Wal Mart and buy a cheap iron. I tend to knock irons over and they don't last too long when you do that. You don't feel as bad about it when it is a cheap iron.

    Yikes! I hope you wear steel toed boots (or have fast reflexes). I would smash my toes for sure.

    Yes, that is what I understand also. I have one from about 10 years ago and I still love mine.

    I use a vintage iron when I press fabric for quilting. The thing weighs at least 5 pounds and is a dry iron - no steam. I use a Shark to iron my clothes for work. My husband bought it at Lowe's for 15.00 (they still sell it for 17.00 now) 5 or 6 years ago to do a carpet repair on his job site. He used the iron one time and stuck it in a cabinet at the house. A few months later, my B&D iron bit the dust, so I grabbed the Shark to use temporarily until I could get out to buy a new Iron. It has been used every day that I worked for the last 5 years. It has been dropped, over filled, run dry, knocked off the ironing board, fallen into the trash can - you name it it has been through it. It has never leaked once. It does have the auto shut off but it heats up so fast I don't even notice it. If you want a good iron, for 17.00 it can't be beat. I know how much it is because I am going to get another one as a back up.

    I had a Rowenta travel iron and it leaked like a sieve. I got a black and decker digital on Amazon for less than $50 and it is awesome! I feel bad spending the money on the Rowenta, but I do try to use it beside my sewing machine for quick dry presses.

    I bought my side table iron, a little travel iron at Walmarts. I believe it was no more than $15.00. Works great and has steam and such on it as well. I love it!

    That's when I got my small "toy" iron.On sale at 25% off,plus I had the 10% off coupon....good on total purchase. So the $10 cost turned into $6.50
