craft coupon store policies

We often see coupons for craft stores but by knowing coupon policies you can save even more! Did you know that you stack coupons to save a ton??

Here is a break down on the coupon policies for JoAnn, Michaels, and Hobby Lobby.

Michaels

Frequency: One coupon type per customer per day
Competitors Accepted:
A.C. Moore, Hobby Lobby, Jo-Anns, Garden Ridge, Roberts, Pat Catan’s and Ben Franklin
Exclusions:
Will not accept competitor coupons for a percent off multiple items (Ex. 25% off your entire purchase.)
Coupon Combinations:

-Can use more than 1 competitor coupon per day
Example: (1) Michaels, (1) Hobby Lobby, and (1) JoAnn’s could all be used when you buy (3) items.

-You cannot use (2) coupons with identical barcodes in one day.
Example: You could not use a mobile coupon and printable coupon for 40% off with the same barcode.

-You can use multiple same-store coupons with different barcodes.
Example: You can use (1) coupon for 25% off your entire purchase and (1) coupon for 40% off one item, but the 25% off coupon will not apply to the item the 40% off coupon attached to.

Note: Some have reported having issues using multiple coupons at Michaels, but it will work according to their coupon policy and I have personally used two coupons with unique barcodes in one transaction.
