My mailed sales flyer from Joann's always arrives late. The most recent flyer which starts on 2/16 arrived yesterday on 2/19. Sometimes its even later than that. I live a metro area in Calif so I don't think its a pony express problem (lol). I'm wondering if others consistently receive their flyer late? You'd think it would arrive before the sales start (just saying).

While I like to look at the actual flyer, I have the Joann's app on my android-easier to carry it with me if I happen to be driving past.

I'm sure there's one for iPhone...

thanks for reminding me of that. I have the app, but usually only use it when checking out with coupons.

Subject: Joanns Sales Flyer - Always late Date: 2/20/14 10:06 AM

I get mine after the sales, like I just got January sales in the mail a few days ago. Hancock's doesn't even bother sending them to me at all.

Trying to get it straightened has never worked (7+ years), so I keep up on the website when I get in the mood for a Simplicity sale. For everything else, I use my ClubBMV.

I will say this much about it: I have found online sources for everything I need that is usually 40% or more less then the store and better quality. Considering that I don't live in a metro area and a trip to town is an ordeal (not a joke), I don't feel like I've missed out on too much plus I save money off impulse buys I would otherwise make.

I agree price and quality can be hit or miss with Joann's, but (are you sitting down) I have 3 Joanns and 2 Hancocks within 15 minutes of my home and 2 of those are directly between home and work. With a coupon and a quick in/out that twin needle I want NOW is a good deal. RE:Patterns, because I'm in CA, Club BMV charges me both tax and shipping and they tax the shipping along with the price so it is cheaper for me to buy patterns brick and motar. Mostly I'm just baffled that the flyer is always late (whine whine whine).

Mine is many times late also.
When that happens, I go to their website. there is a link to "Weekly flyer" at the bottom of the page. This works for me as I do not have a smartphone. An easy way to get coupons to print out is to "Like" them on Facebook. I regularly see links to them there.

I always get it before it is good! It did not used to come on time, but it sure does now - try letting them know in an email to the home office from the website! They are always offering good deals so it's nice to have them on time! I just got back from a raid on the home dec fabric where I really got a nice price on almost 8 yards of fabric. All home dec fabric is 50% off this week.

Never with JoAnn, but ALWAYS with Hancock since I moved. Makes me mad.

Kayco, me too! I have 3 JoAnns and 2 Hancocks. I love it!

I'm in a metro area of CA as well and I didn't even realize I hadn't received the latest mailer until I saw your post. They used to arrive early, but they have been later for the past year or so. Hancock's has my email but stopped sending me mailers even though I do go in and give my phone number each time; I even updated my information with them recently.

Mine isn't always late, but this last one was. I just don't rely on it.

I go to Joann's website where they have their current ads all posted. If you are interested mostly in pattern sales, there is a pinned thread here called "Pattern Sales" or something like that. Someone always posts the upcoming pattern sales long before I receive my flyer.That's so nice.

Get on their email list, you will receive coupons every other day. Sign up for their app on your iPod, iPhone, or android or both or all and you will get coupons. As long as the bar code number is different on the coupons you can use them during one purchase. You can't stack them or combine them, but if you have 4 items you can use 4 coupons. I hope that makes sense. I wouldn't even pay full price for a pack of needles at Joann's.
