    I could not see where they give a senior discount.

    I do know you can get a 10% discount on your purchase (regardless if on sale or not) if you belong to a Guild. Show them proof and you get a card stating you have a discount.

    It looks to me like Joann's is experimenting with their discounts for various groups of people. The 10% VIP (guild/group/charity) discount is always available, as is the 15% discount for teachers. Lately they have on occasionally offered a senior discount and a military discount. They have also bumped the teacher discount up to 20% once or twice. And then they offer percent off discounts to all customers once in awhile. It means you have to be watching their ads all of the time in order to find the narrow special discount windows. And always read the fine print!

    I asked them and they said they don't have a set time. So I told them there is no way to plan to shop for it and they said no. Hancock's is the 1st and 3rd Wed and then the 2nd Wed is Military; all are 15% on top of all others. So for me, being a senior and retired military I'm covered most of the month at Hancock's and I keep their coupons in my purse.

    And don't forget Michael's is an additional 10% off total purchase (except for coupon items) for AARP members every Tuesday.

    Wow! I never knew about the group discount at Joannes or the possible senior one (not there yet!), at Michaels.

    Your correct even the employees don't know when the senior discount is or what the age is! I've had it with JoAnn's and how they do business so I don't care. I love Hancock's.

    The age for the senior discount at Hancock Fabrics is 55.

    Ours does the senior discount but I can't remember when. I need to call and check on that as I need to go over there. I'll also have to check on the military discount. Best way to find out is to call them as it may be different days and ages in different areas.

    Here at our Idaho JoAnn's they will match any sale or discount Hancock's or any competitor has currently advertised. So I've requested Senior discount on 1st and 3rd Wednesdays in the past, to 'match' Hancock's with no problem. So I'm sure they will match nationwide.

    I always put the current fliers from both stores, in my purse so that when I'm in town I have the 'right' flier available and show them the competitors ads, I've never been denied the discount.

    I have heard it is ongoing, but not advertized and that you must ask for it at the register.

    Can the senior discounts at Joanns be used on items already on sale????? Our JoAnn's is really picky about no coupons on sale items. Our Hancock's is really pathetic here.....I know the one in Salem, Oregon is outstanding, but this one is pathetic.

    Whenever I buy in bulk at Jo-Ann's they ask what I'm making. It is always either for the Christmas stockings for the Troops or blankets for the VA or other "make a difference" projects. Never, ever, ever have they suggested that there might be a discount. And when I ask they just say "no". If there was some other place to go, I'd be the first on line.

    If you belong to a guild, apply for the VIP discount card. That gives you 10 percent off on nearly everything, including sale items. froggyintexas

    last time i was at joanne's, the young man running the checkout totaled things up, and then he quietly slid a piece of paper across the counter to me. then he whispered quietly, "umm...err...just checking, ma'am, are you eligible for this?" and i could see it was a coupon for "senior discount". i had to laugh out loud, and was happy to tell him, "yes, i am", and proved it with my driver's license! i was more than happy to get a discount!

    Did you know that Joann's has a free app for iPhones or Smartphones? You can get it from their website. You automatically get all their coupons and discount deals.
