    I'm just curious...again. I would like to know how often do you shop at JoAnn's, and how much do you spend? I'm trying to figure out if the amount on the scratch-off is related to the amount spent in the store or what.

    My scratch-off was for 50% off. I try to go in every time I get a coupon but usually only spend $10.00 or less (mostly thread, accessories, templates, stabilizer). I'm trying to stick to scrap quilts right now, so I don't buy toooo much fabric.

    Just scratched mine off- 40%. I don't go often, but when I go most often it's substantial. Last time was $2.00- a rare case.

    Don't know if I will use it. Maybe offer it to daughter.

    No, definitely no relationship between how much you spend and the value of the coupon, or I would have had one for 80%, lol.

    I haven't gotten a flier yet. I always give my coupons to a guild member that goes to Joann's when she goes to her Dr. in the next town, that's the closest one around and it doesn't have a good selection of quilting notions, always the same old stuff.

    I guess my Joanne's flyer is still in the mail since I haven't received a scratch off. But I use is to buy batting when it isn't on sale. I was there yesterday looking for some Warm & Natural on the bolt and the nice cutting lady told me that it was on sale - normally $7.99 yd for $3.99. She's a quilter so her input on batting was good to me. Wish I could have purchased the whole 15 yds at that point but settled for 4. (I had already spent $50 on fabrics else where.)

    Nope, no relationship at all! Mine was 40%. What I spend there depends on the sales :-D . Bolt batting, some thread, a few notions and some crochet cotton is about all I buy there any more. I use to spend 1/2 my paycheck there until I found my LQS!

    I never got my flyer this week, either. Asked at the store last night when I was in, but they wouldn't give me one - said it was probably a postal error!

    Well I got 60% off. Sounds like I had better go use it. I like Joann's they are good for scrapbooking, polymer clay, yarn and sewing notions. A bit expensive unless they have on sale what you want. They have great sales!

    I should go look at my flyer. It is out in my car...

    I used to spend quite a bit, but recently I am really trying to use my stash instead of buy more. There are always going to be things I want there, but I have to stop buying whim purchases.

    I like to go when the thread is on 50% off sale and when the fabric is 40% off. Otherwise, if I go, it is a small purchase and very specific. Today I need to go get some braid to put on a quilt. I am hoping to walk out with just THAT! I am going to use my 40% off coupon before it expires today.

    But are you going to be able to use your coupon when the items you are buying are on sale? I've never been able to do that. Sometimes though, the 50% off coupon when used on a regular priced item, gives you a better buy than when the same item is on sale.

    Got mine today. Just 40% off. No better than the 40% sales that they're having. The sales don't start until next weekend. 8-)

    I spent $70 there this morning on embroidery floss, new scissors, 2 books, needles and a basket -- Seems like everytime I go it is between $50 and $70...and I got no coupon at all. :o(

    Your Joann's has "Warm and Natural" for $7.99 reg. price.???

    Here in NJ reg. price is #11.99!!! $3.99 on sale. Wow!!! Prices really fluctuate around the country don't they? I'm still shaking my head at those prices :lol: :lol:
