    I'm frustrated because I DO receive the fliers, but the nearest Joanns is 117 miles away! :hunf:

    Debbie Mumms fabrics were 50% off without coupon, so if you have the 25% off coupon good on everything, you get 75% off. I did get a few nice items.


    If you do the math, you'll find out you only got 62.5% off. Still good though.

    You'd have to get 50% off the second time to get a total of 75% off.

    Still a good deal any way you cut it.

    yea, they first take off the 50% then take an addt'l 25% AFTER the 50% was taken off.. Still not bad.. Ill take the savings!!

    marknfran,
    Did they give you 25% off the original price of the Debbie Mumms or 25% off the half-off price? The latter is how they always do it for me so I only get 62.5% off. (Nothing to sneeze at :lol: )
    The Debbie Mumm fabric is listed as 50% off, so the gal that cuts the fabric records it at half the price on the ticket you give to the checkout gal. She then takes your 25% off coupon and deducts that off the price.
    LOL, you're lucky, then, because the math is 62.5% not 75%. Their mistake----------your advantage.

    I behaved myself. Got a package of 80/20 batting, queen sized using my 40% off coupon and a air fading purple marking pen. then DH went through the line and got me a quilt pattern for 40% off, plus another 10% off with my VIP card.

    Made out like a bandit!!! spent $54; saved $58!Bought notions (rulers, thread, thimbles) at 50% off; backing for my quilt using the 40% off coupon; and a cute box to keep treasures in for 50% off; then 25% off my total.
    How do you get a VIP card?

    Gpt 6 yards of fabric, 1 yard of fusible interfacing, 2 yards of webbing for purse straps, magnetic catch, can of spray basting, 2 quilt marking pens, 2.5 yards of large blue rick rac, and embroidery scissors for $48 using a 40% off coupon, 50% off Michael's coupon, and 25% off the complete order. Feel like I did pretty good, saved over $20 with the coupons and most of the notions were already 50% off.

    I love mine, you won't be sorry, always something on it to be cut or started.

    Sorry, I was in Joann's earlier this week. I did not see one bolt of fabric that said quality to me. When I asked the clerk if they had a section on 1930's reproduction fabrics she looked at me as if, wondering what in the world I was referring to. I mentioned 2 or 3 fabric designers, the same look came on her face. Scissors, thread, notions, yes, there are some good buys. I want the quilt work that I do to last 100 years, thanks to quality fabrics.

    I got my 25% coupon in my E-mail. Mine also came in the mail this afternoon. I went yesterday. Also had a 50% off coupon - used that on 2-1/2 yards of Batik that was not on sale. When all done, my bill was $52 + change - savings was $50 + change. Most of the material I bought was 40% off plus the 25%. This was for someone who was not going to buy any material until April!

    I went yesterday with my three daughters...together we saved $210 on $168 of fabric, and $115 on $72 of notions...(we checked out separately so one daughter could use the "friend" 25% off coupon)...and even with stopping for dinner on the trip home (another $34) we saved a bunch....

    Didn't get home until almost 11....man am I tired today...but it was well worth it!!!

    What? Someone didn't do their job ~ there are not different sales in differetn districts... it sounds to me like the Merchandising Manager didn't feel like hanging the sale signs or something ~ all JoAnn Fabrics have the sales!? (I used to be a merch mgr for them in a smaller store) Someone fed you a line of beans, corn & grits... I would be upset and call corporate and mention this to their DTL (district Team Leader aka the stores managers' boss). Sometimes when someone complains about something like this, a good DTL will give you a small gift card for your inconvenience. Be specific. I am not a complainer, but if management is not doing their job like this, the DTL needs to hear from the customer.

    I am sorry you wasted your time and gas, hope you had a better day in other area :)
    I concur

    Me and sis were going to make a run to Vegas today. When I got online to check their flyer, it asked for either zip or city. I put in city and the ad came up with no calicos on sale; just quilters solids. I went back to the ad later and all of a sudden they were on sale. In red it showed prices starting @ $3.99. I clicked on one, went directly back to the same page on the flyer and the sale was gone;prices starting @ $4.99. Flyer shows Vegas as having 3 stores (2 in Henderson). No sale anywhere. So glad I saved ourselves a 2 hr round trip.

    I saw April Cornell & Debbie Mumm designs as well as some others I'm not as familiar with. The flannel I bought on accident--it was supposed to be in the nursery prints & panels which were only $1 off instead of the Snuggle where i found it--is very nice quality. Their quilter's flannel is also the thick kind and they now have the "premium" calicos but those might be limited to shelf space and I was in a Super Joann's. If my tiny little local one carries those at all, it would only be a couple bolts.

    I'm not going to be around in 100 years so I only need mine to last for 50 and I need to make a bunch in the next 50 years without having to eat nothing but beans and mac & cheese for those 50 years--LOL.

    The online versions of the sale flyers are not the same as the paper ones I have. They are missing the little fold out section that has a coupon for 50% off one fabric item, the 40% off Keepsake Calico's and a couple other things.

    Yes, I believe the 25% coupons were good for as many uses as you wished during the sale, which ends today.

    Darn. Missing it. On a road trip. Leaving the snow in my rear view mirror, headed back to the blooming azaleas and dogwoods.

    Went back today, Sunday. Guess I should have gone yesterday since the items that were 50% off (notions) sale ended Saturday. Did use my 40% off some fabric glue I needed. Also, the company taking over Joanns is an investment group. They are cutting employees hours and raising prices. Well, it was nice while it lasted!!

    Unhappily we don't have them here in the great white north and they don't ship here. I would love to save that kind of money.
