    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!

    Hope this helps prevent some of the selfish women from grabbing a dozen of the store flyers from the plastic caddies located at the store entrance. A few months ago, I walked in behind one who emptied the caddy. The service desk had none left. I found her in the polar fleece (which was already on sale), explained that she took the last of the flyers, and asked if I could have one. Nope. That greedy b---- said she "needed" them all. ~~

    The in-store flyers here never have the coupons, only the ones that are mailed out.

    I thought most of the coupons say you can only use per visit?

    I don't cut coupons anymore. All major stores have an app with the updated coupons available. I pay for phone service so I let the phone save me time and money as much a possible.
    Got fabric?

    I don't recall seeing coupons in the in-store flyers, either.

    It seems like the stores are really different depending on where you go. Some have coupons, some don't. Some honor fabric coupons for bolt batting, some don't. Discounts given for end-of-bolt fabrics are different.

    One store I go to insists on separate purchase ring-ups if you're buying two items with two 50% fabric coupons (one from the in-store flyer and one from the mailer), or if you're getting two items with two 40% off coupons from Hobby Lobby.

    I suppose the manager has a lot to do it, and also how much competition is in the area. I'm also starting to believe that the individual employees have a hand in this. I wish I had a smartphone.

    I have the Joann's app too. Get on their mailing list if you aren't already...I have gone in with paper coupons from the flyer, plus printed coupons from email, PLUS coupons from the app and they let me use them all on the same purchase.

    There aren't any Hobby Lobbys in my area, but there are Beverly's fabrics here, and they will take Joann's coupons but only honor them up to 30% off. (So you can use a 50% off coupon, but they'll only give a 30% discount for it.) They don't even have signs that say this; another local quilter on this forum clued me in!

    Did they let you use their 15% off coupon with a 50% off coupon? I didn't think they would do that.

    I signed up at both places to have text from Joann's and emails from Hancock's so that I always have them. I get more coupons from Hancocks due to this than when they were coming in the mail. Plus with Hancock's I like having them on me because for the first 3 Wed it's either Senior Citizen or Military discount and those go on top of your sales or coupon. Having them coming to my phone each week sure has saved me money.

    I know that when I went to Hancock Fabrics I had to have them ring me up separtley and then use my 15% senior citizen discount for each one. I saved a lot. It's set up in the register on how they can apply the discount; my store won't allow employees to do certain multiple discounts. It depends on how the coupon reads.

    I always check my phone for coupons online. It can save you money, especially when the item is full price! If you have the Joann's app on your phone, it is easy to get the coupon! If they can't scan it, they will just key it in. It has saved me money at times.
