Ways to Save While Shopping at JoAnn’s
JoAnn is known for a wide selection of fabrics and beads, arts and craft supplies, and somewhat higher prices. Don’t let that last thing to deter you from visiting the store, because there are plenty of ways to get what you want and save some money in the process. All you need is a few tips and tricks, which we are ready to share with you:
If you download the free app, you will always have access to some great coupons that differ from store email and text coupons. You will also get weekly ads.
- Text messages
Sign up for text alerts and get 20% off your first order. You will get various other coupons via text messages if you are interested.
- Email list
Put your email on the list and get email-specific coupons. While you might feel overwhelmed by the amount of coupons at first, keep in mind that you can stack them for maximum savings.
- Multiple coupons
You might be getting the same coupons via text, email, and regular mail, so take advantage of that and use them all for multiple regular priced items in your shopping cart.
JoAnn has clearance items scattered all over the store, with a small section of discounted stuff in each department, so check those deals first.
- Patterns on sale
Patterns can be very pricey at $20 each, but it’s not always the case. Sometimes they go on sale for 2-3 days or an entire week. This is the best time to buy them for as little as $1-$2 apiece, which is affordable and justifiable. It’s even cheaper than with 60% off coupon.
- Competitors coupons
JoAnn accepts competitor coupons, so bring it on from Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, AC Moore, Hancock Fabrics, and Aaron Brothers. Even after purchase, mobile, and electronic coupons work.
- VIP membership
You can become a VIP member and enjoy 10% off if you are a reseller, interior design professional, or a member of professional sewing or crafting organization.
- Student discounts
High school and college students get 10% discounts and 2 coupons with purchases once they sign up and show their ID.
- Military discount
Active and retired military personnel and their families get 10% off purchases.
- Shopping list
Just like with any other store, don’t come to JoAnn without a shopping list. Even when you have great coupons and find nice clearance prices, if you will buy what you don’t need, you will end up spending more instead of saving.
- Only shop with coupons
If you don’t have enough coupons to use for everything you buy, consider coming back the next day with new coupons. This only works if you live close buy, otherwise you’ll spend more on gas.
- Coupons vs sales
There is a sale of some sort at JoAnn pretty frequently, but most sales are not that great. You will be much better off if you will wait for coupons and shop regular priced items with them.
- Fabric remnants
The best way to buy fabric is to buy remnants. Remnant is usually less than one yard in length and is 50% off. You really have it going on when you buy remnants on the days when fabric is 50%, which means that you’ll get 50% off already discounted fabric pieces and will end up paying pennies on a dollar.
