Craft Store Discounts

Here in Fresno we really only have 2 craft stores, Michaels and Joann. I don't know about the rest of you, but I can blow quite a bit of money in these fine establishments;).

Now, I signed up for the paper ad from Joann's but it is tiring to shop by 1 40% off coupon at a time. Joann's does have some other deal opportunities! First you can sign up for their online newsletter. They will send you some coupons that are good only online but also many coupons that are printable to take in!

If you are an educator (yes, that means homeschoolers too!) you can sign up for an additional discount. You will get a 15% card that is good on your entire purchase, excluding things you used coupons on. That means you can use the 15% off sale and clearance items!!! You also get a 1 time 20% off an entire purchase coupon! You can sign up online for the educator's discount if you have an ein number (teachers) or hslda/peah number (homeschoolers). As homeschoolers, if you go into the store you just have to show them something. I used my Chea card. The educator discount is good for 1 year and then you just fill out the form again.

Michaels also have an online newsletter. You will get the ad emailed to you every week. They also have The Knack newsletter. This is for both teachers and educators. Usually it is just craft ideas but sometimes it includes additional coupons to!

Both Michaels and Joann's accept competitor's coupons. At Michaels it can take a while because they often need to do multiple purchases but Joann's just scans them all in on one purchase.

So what are you still doing here? Go sign up for your discounts and good crafting!

  • I knew they accepted competitor's coupons, but never knew you could use more than one at Joann's. I'll have to give that a try next time I go. Unfortunately, it's almost an hour's drive from here. I wish they'd set one up locally!
