    I went there with a list of items NEEDED. Original price would have been 213.31 with an ending price with taxes for $97.98.....saved $115.33
    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.

    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.

    if you did not get a mailer postcard for the special 25% off this weekend, check your email if you're on the email list! The email came last week, its the coupon that you get to use over and over all 3 days! :)

    The last time I was at Joann's, I got 2 of the 25% (off your total order) coupons at the check-out counter. Each one has a coupon for you and one for a friend. Even though I am on the mailing list and did receive this week's sale ad, I did not get a 25% coupon in the mail.

    I am going tomorrow with a gift card and some cash I got for my birthday. I need sewing machine needles, thread, spray adhesive and a whole bunch of fabrics. (I do Quilts for Kids). We'll see how well I do!

    The one time I have more than one coupon, plus the coupon for an additional 25% off, and I have no funds!

    Darn, darn, darn. :cry:

    I went to get Egyptian cotton or Kona cloth and they were out of both or put them away. All the other fabrics were on sale so the 50% would not apply The 25% off did not apply if you had used another coupon. Very disappointing.

    I didn't really need anything but a new cutting mat - the giant one that covers my whole cutting table. Mine has so many grooves worn in it that I can't even cut on certain areas any more. :)

    I got some hand applique needles that I haven't tried yet and some no-melt template plastic and a few other little things, but no major shopping trip. There's really very little that I need any more. Lately, all I need is to get my rear in gear and sew some of it together. ;)

    I went this morning and got the Sew Essentials cutting table. It was on sale for $69.99 plus had the 25% off coupon so saved over $70.00. Haven't set it up yet but can't wait. It will be much easier than using the dining room table and always having to move stuff for mealtime.

    When I went by today, there were newspapers as you went in the store with more 25% coupons so even if you don't have a 25% coupon, you can get one there. I am going back tomorrow if I can get with JoanieU to drive with me. Have fun everyone who gets to go.

    I went this morning & thanks to the yucky weather we had, I didn't even have to wait in the cutting line but the people who waited for it to quit sleeting sure did--LOL!

    I didn't get the Rowenta travel iron I wanted--can't use a coupon on it, so I will have to wait for a sale. I did get the Sidewinder bobbin winder and I thought they had used my coupon but it didn't go through. I guess it's considered a sewing machine department item and those don't count. And, one of the flannels I bought must not have been a Snuggle flannel or it was missed in the computer. I bought 5 yards of it, too so the $12.50 I was expecting it to ring up as turned into $29.95. I did have the 25% preferred customer coupon which came off the complete total and it is a very nice flannel so I still got a bargain. I will probably be taking it back and have them use a 50% off coupon on it. I may pickup that iron again and keep it this time!

    They didn't have the June Tailor Shape Cut Plus ruler that I've been lusting after. Not buying that & putting the iron back saved money, right?!

    I used a 40% off coupon and got a 5 pack of Fiskar's 45mm rotary blades that don't appear to have the notches so I'm hoping they will work better in my Martelli cutter than the Olfa ones. I've broken 2 of the Olfa blades in it so my favorite cutter has been sitting unused & unloved. My wrist & shoulder will personally draft a thank you note to Fiskar if their blades work as well as the Martelli's.

    Just the 25% off and the one 40% off coupon was a savings of $75. I bought yards & yards of flannel @ $2.50 per yard that is normally $4.99 & $5.99. I also went a little crazy in the Keepsake Calico area. All of that was 40% off regular $3.99-$5.99. Some of the brand new (& very pretty) calicoes are regular price $7.99 but I didn't get any of those. You can even see some fabrics with the $4.99 price on the bolt and a new bolt of the same fabric is $5.99. It's not a cover-up sticker either. It's the factory applied sticker with all the details on it.

    I also noticed that Joann's is getting more & more designer quilting fabric. In addition to Debbie Mumm; they have April Cornell, Susan Winget, M'Liss (I can't remember her last name)Rawley, maybe, and several others.

    All in all, a very good day and if hubby goes with me tomorrow, I'm sure we'll be snatching up more fabric. He likes matching colors.

    I saved 73 and spent 52. I got the GIANT Omnigrip 20 1/2" square ruler. Very excited about that bargain! I'm taking my for a friend coupon tomorrow and seeing what I missed!
