Re: another coupon for everyone-fell for it again

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.

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.

That's the way all the JoAnns in my area work too.

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. Emily

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.

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)
