Secret Ways To Save Money At Jo-Ann Fabrics

What don't we love about craft store Jo-Ann Fabrics? They've got everything you could need to make virtually any type of craft project you can dream up, home decor, and festive seasonal supplies to boot! Sometimes it's therapeutic just to wander the aisles and see what strikes your interest or serves as inspiration. But if you're heading to Jo-Ann on a mission, there are a few things you should know before you whip out that debit card at the counter. Were you aware there are a lot of secret ways to save money at this store beyond waiting for sales to begin? 

The first thing you should know is that if you are looking for something specific, your best bet of finding it is to shop on a Sunday morning (via The Krazy Coupon Lady). This is when the store is most freshly stocked, and, especially during sale weeks, things can sell out fast. So if you need something in a particular color or are after something popular, pour yourself a coffee and make your craft shopping "easy like Sunday morning." And if you happen to be going into Jo-Ann Fabrics to buy actual fabric, did you know it's cheaper to buy it by the square inch than by the quarter?    

Coupons, coupons, and more coupons!

While the idea of clipping coupons is definitely not a secret, there are a few things you may not know about Jo-Ann coupons that might save you a lot more than you expected. First, you don't have to wait for coupons to come in the mail. According to Heart Hook Home, the store has coupons available on its website, on their mobile app, and you can even sign up for text alerts if you're interested in receiving coupons and promotions directly. Now that you have the coupons, there are a few tricks to using them. Did you know you can use your coupons twice, once in store and again online (via The Krazy Coupon Lady)? To do this, make sure you use the code online first (because sometimes the store clerks keep the coupons once you hand them over).

Also, if you want to use multiple coupons at once, it's best to use them in the store so that you don't run out of places to enter the codes online. Plus, did you know you're allowed to use coupons on red tag clearance items to save even more? Lastly, and this one is a big deal: Did you know that Jo-Ann will accept their competitors' coupons as well? That's right! If you have coupons for Michael's or Hobby Lobby, you can take them to Jo-Ann along with your Jo-Anne coupons and use all of them! Talk about one-stop shopping!
