Default new signs at JoAnns and Hancock fabrics!!!

Both stores in the Kansas City area had signs posted on or near the front doors saying they will now accept all coupons taken off your phone or i-pad....so, be sure to shoot a photo of the coupon off the screen on your computer ( might have to take 2 to get it all or 3 to get a close up of the bar code numbers ) the cash register will not be able to scan your phone, so the cashier will need to be able to read the coupon numbers and manually punch them into the computer. I had a one in my e'mail box from JoAnns that good TODAY only and was able to use it at both Joanns and Hancocks....nice bit of savings in my pocket!!

That's great to know. Thanks for sharing the experience.

Last Saturday I went to a store that I hadn't planned and didn't have the coupon from their email. My husband sent it to my phone from the home email and they gave me the savings by showing the email with the coupon in it.

I think this says something about the way of the future.

I have an app from Joann's that has the coupons already. I use my iPad, the clerks liked how it was so much bigger to read then an iPhone.

just had a coupon scanned from my phone at JoAnn's today. Hancocks and JoAnn's will take each others coupons. At least here they do.

Joann's have been doing that for awhile now...taking any competitors coupns..plus theirs and you can use them all together. Joann's will take all competitors, those printed online nad those from their mailer...all in the same visit.
Today I did that...(well, did it earlier this week to but got some more on line last night!) 50% off regular items (sometimes hard to find!) I had 8 of them. And then another coupon for 15% off ENTIRE purchase including sale items! So I got 1/2 yard of 11 diff fabs for $2.12 each. Kind of like the price of a FQ...$1.99 for 1/4 sq yd.. I got 1/2 yd for $2.

Join their mailing list and get them online and join the mailing list in the store and get them in the mail. I could afford to quilt if I didn't get the ocupons! I used one today for 50% off on $5 batting...plus 15% off that!

I don't have a ''fancy phone'' just a simple flip phone with a camera that shoots OK stuff. you can shoot photos off your computer screen, that way I don't have to have a printer!!! and when you reach the check out at the store, just pull out your phone and scroll till you find the correct coupon photo! You also need to sign up for the mailers that come out about once a month and be sure to also sign up for the e'mail alerts ( tell you computer NOT to send them to the spam box!!! ) I get 2 mailers, one at my home address and one at my business, so I have double the coupons to use. Today, I was able to also use 10 ( 5 50% coupons in each Joanns mailer!!!! ) and added a few fun goodies. Found several bolts of almost gone fabric and after she cut my 1 yard I asked for, I also took it all for the 1/2 off rement price...it was a good day at the J!
