I had a 50% off coupon that was expiring on the 3rd so I went in that day.
They had some fabric that I wanted on sale.  But when I gave the coupon to
the girl cutting the fabric she rang it up at regular price and said that
with a coupon it automatically prices at regular price, that I can't get the
sale price with a coupon. I told her that I had done it in the past and she
refused to give me the sale price with the coupon. I was ticked. She was
rather rude too. The only problem is, there just aren't many fabric stores
worth anything around where I live so my choices are pretty limited to
JoAnns and Walmart.

Re: another coupon for everyone-fell for it again
When an item is on sale, you can either use the sale price, or the coupon
price. You can't use the coupon price on top of the sale price.

Re: another coupon for everyone-fell for it again
I've never known JoAnn's or Hancock's to give the 50% off on a sale item
unless it is clearly stated on the coupon that it is for all fabrics,
notions, etc.  Most of them have a statement somewhere on them saying, "Not
good on sale priced items." or "On regular price only."
If I decide to buy a sale item, I figure which is the best price, regular
with 50% off or the sale  price.

Re: another coupon for everyone-fell for it again
Every time somebody buys sale fabric at my local JoAnns and tries to use
the coupon, they tell them the same thing.  The reason is that it would
be giving a "double discount" which isn't allowed.  If something is on
sale for 30% off and you want to use the 50% coupon, you will get 50%
off the regular price...just the way it has always worked..even from the
days when I worked at JoAnns (years ago, it seems)

And I just figured out why I got the sale price then the 50% off the last
time. I have only used a coupon for fabric one time before this. It was
priced at the sale price when it was cut but I used the coupon when I got to
the register. I didn't know at the time that I was supposed to give the
coupon to the person cutting the fabric so they could adjust the price
there. So I got it at sale price then 50% off. When I spoke to the clerk
about it this time, it just didn't click with me that it would be like a
double discount. Yeah it should have, I know, lol. But well in my old age
what can I say. Anyway, thank you all for pointing this out to me. I will
know better the next time.

Re: another coupon for everyone-fell for it again

Thanks : ) The 'owner' of the Viking part has another store here in
town---lets say I get 'more' from driving up to Fresno Viking  dealer
than here.
Sides when we go up to Fresno.....I get to have lunch with the King Of
Fresno : )
Still shopping--had a nice demo on the Pfaff Quilt Expression last
week--didn't get back there yet.
Not looking for the embroidery stuff per se--never really used them that
much on the other Viking
Butterfly (Queen of Fresno)
