    Did you all get your VIP card? I live 30 miles from a store, so I'm not a frequent shopper, and maybe a little cynical. But now-I can save 10% (covers the tax) once I activate my card, show proof of membership and PHOTO ID (?) I understand photo id at my Dr's office, but at JoAnn's??????? Anything pricey there I use my coupons for 40-50%.
    Maybe its my Saturday morning brain. Also, is anyone a member of QCA or QNN? What do you think of them? Most of it comes thru QNN, the video's, etc. I like Quilt Out Loud.

    I think the card works like the teacher cards. You show your idea the first time and they sign the card or give you a new one. Then you can use the card in addition to your coupons. So, you would get 405 off the item, then 10% off the amount that is left. If items are on sale, you would get an additional 10% off the sale price.

    At least that is how the teacher cards work.

    I didn't know either. Is it something you sign up for?

    It came in the mail. I suppose its just from using the coupons. I will be traveling to breakfast with my daughters tomorrow 45 miles away, there is a store there. I will use it and see what its all about. I'll be sure to have my photo ID.

    If you belong to a quilters guild and show your membership card you get 10% off your entire purchase at Joann's even if you use coupons.

    This is what I found on the Joann website:

    So if we use our Quilting Board member card we downloaded off of this site, will that count?

    I think you have to belong to a guild or to a sewing club that has an official card. You just take your membership card to the check out and the clerk/manager will get you a VIP card.

    You can get the 10 percent on all items, icluding most sale items, but you can't use it with the 40 percent off coupons, at least not at the store where I shop.

    Sometimes you will find a clerk who doesn't know split beans from coffee about the VIP card, but hang tough and be patient. He or she needs to learn the business.

    I have one from Quilter's Club of America. I joined just this year. That reminds me-I'm supposed to go do something to get my new card.

    I had one and JoAnn's did not accept it as 10% on purchases
    Only goods you bought.
    I'm not working now so I won't be buying another membership.

    What do you mean by 'goods you bought'. Isn't that the same as purchases? I get 10% off anything that I'm not already using a coupon on. Even the things that coupons don't apply on like cricut cartridges.

    OK what got me confused is that you said "did not accept it as 10% on purchases" and then said "only goods you bought". So in other words they did not give you the 10% off when you bought something? I think I'm not getting it.

    As for coupons, I think mine says not to be used with coupons. The register automatically takes the 10% off and it takes it off everything but the items that used coupons.

    OK I'm looking and on the back it says cannot be combined with any other discount coupons. Also says not good on remnants. The website just says some exclusions apply and to read the card for more information.

    It says it must be presented with ID and proof of membership but they've never asked for those.

    I have one and it applies to anything that is not purchased with a coupon. I got a vendor's license to do some craft shows and inquired how it would work at JoAnn's. When I purchase fabric or thread (anything that was part of something I'd be selling) I don't pay sales tax. Except, now I have to collect sales tax and send it to the government. I guess I'll never quite get how that's supposed to benefit the small business person! Anyway, when I was inquiring how that worked, the JoAnn's manager gave me the card. It all helps!

    Non-Profit Discount Card
    Who Qualifies?
    Any organization with a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit tax status can qualify for Jo-Ann Non-Profit membership status. As a Jo-Ann Non-Profit member, you'll save 10% on every total purchase*, including regular- and sale-priced items at any Jo-Ann store.

    Of course, there is an * and I don't have the card so I don't know what is on back.

    I don't think the non-profit card is the one most people here have or could get. The VIP card which is given to store owners, guild members, etc is the one. Both have the * and below the first paragraph there is a * and it says Some exclusions apply. See card for details. And on the card it says it can't be used with a coupon.

    Become a Jo-Ann VIP & save 10% on every purchase!

    If you are a reseller, member of a professional sewing or crafting organization, or an interior design professional, you can become a Jo-Ann VIP! As a Jo-Ann VIP, you'll save 10% on every total purchase*, including regular- and sale-priced items, at any Jo-Ann store or at Joann.com®.

    *Some exclusions apply. See card for details.
    Who Qualifies?

    Resellers, sewing and crafting guilds, associations, professional organizations and interior design professionals all qualify for Jo-Ann VIP membership status.
