    OK I know we all had wish list's with our coupons and I'm wanting to hear from those who go, how well you did. I was a little miffed that everything, and I mean everything on my list was on sale. I finally bought a 20 yard bolt of fusible pellon that I use for T-shirt quilts and may try it with a few hand bag patterns if I use Cotton and may not want to quilt it. I probably should have bought minke cause it was not on sale @13.99 a yard, but I couldn't remember what colors I have and did not want to repeat a color. I even tried to buy black Kona which I use a lot of black and white Kona, but they didn't have much on any rolls, only like a couple of yards or so and it looked beat in both stores. So I came home with my pellon and guess I saved a little. Please tell me that some of you made out better than I did. I usually do better when they have a 50% off coupon now and than cause they have a larger selection of my items. GOOD LUCK!!!

    I wish they were good next weekend. I only got 50% and 40% (dh has a mailer too :D ) but we won't be near a decent Joann's until next weekend. I figure it's not much better than a regular coupon anyway...

    The 60% was a scratch-off coupon. I think the possibilities were anywhere from 20% or maybe 30% up to 80%.

    The last flyer I received had a scratch off on the back and I was one of the lucky ones with a 60%, but the whole darn store was on sale and really had a hard time finding something to use it on. Gosh darn them all to heck!!!

    Yea, I never understood why they even bother with the mailings, because everything is always on sale and the couple is worthless most of the time.

    I went once and the sale was for 50% off on Olfa cutting mats and cutting tools I got the rotary one that costs like $70.00 without even being able to use a coupon. To be it sounds like they should save the money on the mailers since the sales are permanent. They just rotate the items on sale from week to week.

    WOOT! I got a 60% one! I will have to stop in and see if I can find anything worth using it on. I agree it is super frustrating to get a great coupon only to find they have already put everything on sale for 20 or 30% off.
    I'll find something if it kills me! Just got paid today too!!

    I've used them on books. The books I got were in the $25 to $30 range so with 40% off it's been a good deal. Of course, Amazon is a good deal too because the same books are around $15 to $20!

    I got a 60% scratch off coupon and used it on a set of 4 square rulers, originally priced @ $34.99. Yes, so many things on sale it was hard to find something.

    Too bad they don't let you use them on irons any more. 60% off an iron is a great deal. I just got 40% on my scratch card, which is fine - it's better than nothing! :D

    hobo - wish our store would let me do that, but I've asked, since I've heard this from other members, but they looked at me like I was a total dunce and said no way.

    I got an ironing board cover. I told the clerk I think that was the only thing that was on sale.

    I agree. My coupon is for 50% but I was looking to get another cutting mat but those are already on sale. :( If you look at the front of the flyer...the quilting books are on sale also. (It's listed under the fabric in fine print.) :( Maybe some fabric or notions of some sort if I use it at all... :(

    It truly is playing mind games for a store to basically put everything on sale for 20%to 30% and then offer the coupons which are only good on things not on sale. I am becoming more and more discouaged with both JoAnn's and Hancocks because they both do the same. Since they remodeled they have brought in more stuff tosell but a lot of it is not very good quality. More and more I am buying from the LQS because the fabric is nicer. I do check often for discounted fabrics at the LQS because it does get pricey.

    I had a 60, a 50 and two 40's the total was $68. and some change and I only had to pay $43 and some change. The guy who rang me out was surprised it took them all. I get coupons from Joann's online almost every week also from my newspaper and then of course the flyers. All but the paper one has my name printed on it. I agree most things were already on sale. but the Kona black wasn't so I did good on that and the light box was $14.99 and I got it for ten something.

    GOOD FOR YOU!! Glad to hear someone scored. I love the kona's but the black and white only had a few yards on each bolt. They were not on sale but not one color had more than 3 yards on it. Were they hiding the fuller bolts? Both stores had very little, strange. Light box would have been a good idea, don't know how much I would have used one.

    I have already used it to trace embroidery patterns on to fabric and did it in half the time it took me at the window tracing.

    I buy for our prayer quilt group at church & some of the girls had donated their coupons to use for the quilts. I went to buy a bolt of batting and the flyer said it was the packaged batting on sale. I got there and it was on sale too. I had a 60% off. The clerk told me the sale goes off sat night & my coupon is good until Sunday so I am going back to get it. It will save an additional $88 by waiting until Sunday. We were also going to get a large cutting mat but they were also on sale & the girl didn't know when the sale on them ends. I didn't get one and will check Sunday & see if they are still on sale. My husband said you have never come home from joann's and felt good about it. It just seems like a bait and switch....but we need the batting and can't get any better deal..you just feel like they are playing mind games with you.

    That was very nice of the sales lady to even tell you that, neither one said anything when I mentioned the bolt of batting. It was one of the items I had on my wish list, and would have bought it to use for our chemo quilts. Darn them all!! I still have a 50 given to me by a friend maybe I will go back and use that one. Thank you kindly for the information.

    I was at Joann's with my 70% off coupon when they opened this AM. At check out, the clerk rang it up from the fabric ticket. I showed her my coupon. She asked if there was a sale sign. I replied no and it wasn't in their sale ads either. She sold it to me for $10.99 a yard minus 70%. Now, to start quilting the pile of charity quilts waiting for batting.
