    Probably everyone knows these things, but just in case--when I was at Joann yesterday, the cashier told me that they accept all competitors' coupons--Hancock, Michaels' and Hobby Lobby. Also you can use a combination of coupons--say for example a Joann 50% off one that came to you in the mail and another 50% off one that is included in the newspaper ads, as long as the bar codes are different. Same way with any other of their coupons--just check out the bar codes and make sure they are different on the two you want to use. Easy to compare the codes if you hold them side by side. That way you don't have to go through the checkout line more than once to use a similar coupon.

    Our Joann's doesn't honor anyone else's coupons.

    Well, that's VERY interesting. You'd think it was a company-wide policy! I'm going to try to contact JoAnn's corporate office and ask them about this!

    I think that I saw something like that at Hancock Fabrics.

    Yeah Hancock does also. And our LQS nicely will honor the Joann's one with your name on it from the mail flyer for up to 5 yds of fabric or on books or such. A real deal since there isn't a J's within a reasonable drive for me.

    Wow- I'm surprised your LQS will honor the coupon's. That's great. Ours will not:(

    Frankly, I am too, I think she must take a real beating. But it does get customers in and maybe they buy other stuff. She's a very nice person, we always do Toys for Tots and one year she offered a free fat quarter for each toy. That was very sweet.

    I have used the coupon from the mailed flyer, one from the newspaper and one from email at the same time.

    I do that too. If you get online coupons you can have them sent to your phone so they are with you. don't have to remember to print them out. learned that from DD. When i get flyers with multiple coupons they always scan them in a particular order so i get the most savings.

    Our Joann's is moving. I got a flyer saying to "Hurry in!" I went and had a good laugh and then left. Most things were 25% off the regular price and you couldn't use any coupons. Things are usually cheaper during sales and I could even use a 40% off to get a better deal. Needless to say, there wasn't very much "flying off the shelves" and I won't hurry back (until the new store opens, of course)

    My local Joann's won't accept coupons from competing stores if you are buying an item that is not carried by the competing store, such as fabric, which Michael's or A.C. Moore does not carry.

    My other favorite is things on clearance at 40% off, which is as good a deal as you can get most anyday with a coupon.

    I was just at Joann's yesterday with a friend. She had one of those scratch-off flyers and it was good for 60% off. Except almost everything was at a discount (even magazines were 10% off!!). She ended up giving it to me to use on Insul-Bright ---that came in handy because I was buying 6 yards of it!!

    I wonder if corporate has changed the policy since the take-over. I am just waiting for a clean store with happy employees...but fear it will be a very long wait...wish I had another choice. my Walmart discontiued fabric and when I last talked to the manager...he said no one has asked for it back...

    Went to JoAnn's yesterday and noticed new staff. Although workers are always friendly, this is the first time I was offered the end-of-bolt for 50% off. I never knew anything less than 1 yrd. left of the bolt was discounted until someone mentioned it here.

    Thanks for sharing board members!

    P.S. Clearance is 50% off May 27th - 30th. Plus, there's a coupon for an additional 10% off that can be used!
