New DS fat quarters...score!

As soon as I realized
that the new Denyse Schmidt fat quarter panels were available at JoAnn Fabrics
 I was on my way over there!
Okay not quite immediately.
I was a 'good' quilter and waited until Sunday when the Coupon Commotion began.
I figured since they weren't on sale I could use my 50% off coupon.
they were on sale just not marked
for $9.09 or something.
So it's wasn't 12.99...but geez..
I really wanted to get 50%.

Has that ever happened to you at JoAnn's?
They always put the magazines 10% off when they have this sale too..
Well like I said, they were on sale so I can't complain too much.
And they are sweet prints.
and 16 of them for about $36 felt like a complete score!
Now to just get myself to 'open' them and use them.

I am going to try to go there this week! Thanks for the heads-up!

I picked up two of those today too! It's so not cool when JoAnn's puts their magazines on sale for 10% off! I try and buy everything with a coupon there!

I do not like JoAnn's and their coupon program...anything I ever need (notice I did not say want) is always on sale...never get to use them...UGH!

If you have an iPhone, there is an app for Joann's. There are some really great coupons in the app weekly. There is currently one coupon for 20% off your total order and you can combine :)

Vickie, I too hate when they put magazines10% off. I think they do it purposely. You know that if u are a teacher u can get the teacher discount card which is 15% off always.

Girl, I feel ya! I was just there and bought the remainder of a roll of warm and white with my 40% off coupon, only to receive the next flyer with it on sale for 7.99 a yard plus a 20% off coupon on top of it. But sometimes I feel like I get a lot cheap there, so if they make some money off me sometimes that's a-ok. I want them to stay in business! I see lots of people haggling with the workers all the time trying to either get a coupon or saying something should be on sale, so I try to be pleasant since I'm always dragging three kids in there. Those fat quarter bundles are worth the 9.09. I got them all and have used them already. Very pretty and soft fabric.

On occassion the magazines are not 10% off and usually I can't find one I don't have. But Joanne can be tricky with the coupons. I do enjoy the hunt.

PS. Just downloaded the Joanne app for the IPad.

We dont have a Jo-Ann's here. I order stuff occasionally, and that does drive me nuts about the coupons though... And on you of that, it will take a month for my purchase to get to me!

I just got a couple of the bundles a couple weeks ago - they were 30 or 40% off, then I had a 10% off total purchase. I only got the aqua/orange bundle and the blue/gray bundle though - didn't care for the other colors. I am in LOVE with the aqua floral bouquet! LOOOOOOOVE!

So you can use coupons on magazines at Jo-Ann's? I want Stitch magazine, which is $14.99!

This happens to me all the time at Jo-Anns! They are tricky - you have to be tricker - LOL! DS did a lecture at my guild last month - she had those panels for sale - they are so cute!!

I also use my teacher discount card and get another 15% off, that helps too. It probably doesn't apply to sales, but it used to before the buy out a couple of years ago.

Ugh, I hate that about Joanns! It's about a 45 minute drive for me to go there, and I have to cross the border to boot... I do love their sales but it's a pain when everything I'd like to use the coupons on are already discounted for less! Anyway, that was my little rant! I picked up two of the panels two and just love looking at them! What are your plans for them? Maybe you can give me an idea or two...?
