Default next week's Michaels ad

I just happened to look through yesterday's junk mail/coupons before I pitched it in the recycling bin and next week's Michaels ad was in there. Just wanted to let you know so you could check your mail. I don't know if this means there won't be one in the paper on Sunday. There's some pretty good deals, including 60% off the entire stock of Sizzix and $40 select Cricut cartridges.

I am so mad at Michaels. I stopped there today because I *thought* I had a 40% off coupon to use. Well, I didn't I had one from Joann's but the clerk said you can use that one here. So I signed a paper - gave up my coupon and she gave me 40% off a package of candy starbursts my daughter had wanted. I didn't notice until I was home! I wanted 40% off the cuttlebug die. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR RRRRRRRRRRRR

That's weird, you should have received the discount on your highest price item, I'd go back with your products and receipt and get the right item discounted!

The coupon is supposed to be off of the highest item.

I was bummed at Micheal's the other day. I wanted to use my 50% off coupon but I was 45 minutes too late.... it was only until 1pm. What was really frustrating was that I've used expired coupons from the previous week there, but they wouldn't take one 45 minutes late. Ok, rules are rules... but it's still a bummer.

I can't believe the checker gave you the discount on the Starburst candy! Done on purpose? I thought the hightest price item was discounted!

I had that happen once. Although I caught it before I even paid for the item. The checker just looked at me blankly. I told her that I wanted the coupon to be applied to the highest priced item, not just any item. Then she put up a stink about having to void the sale out. I told her I'd wait. It could have been an honest mistake since the Michael's ad automatically takes the percentage off the highest priced item, whereas the checker has to manually take the percentage off an item. Regardless, I'd take your receipt back and have them make adjustment.

My Michael's always asks what item I want to use my JoAnn's coupon on. I would definitely take back your receipt and ask for them to make the correction!

Does it list which ones, or just say select??

I've had the very same experience with Michaels taking the coupon off any item they choose. Of course I mentioned it and the checker seemed to have problems with trying to make it right (probably an act). Once she saw that I wasn't going to just give up and leave she called the manager up to help her. Once it was all done it ended up being like an $4.00 difference. I sometimes wonder if they do this because not all customers pay attention when they are checking out. Well now I do pay attention so they can't cheat me.

I think the Micheal's coupon, when they apply it on their computer, automatically deducts from the highest price item. So, the checkers forget when you use a coupon from a different store, it's not coded for them... it just applies to the last scanned item.

Probably not on purpose. Just gotta be smarter than their computers!

Default Michael's 40% off policy

Just a heads up, 40% coupons (ours or Joann's) can not be used on Cricut machines, cartridges or tools. It is in the contract from ProvoCraft

The same for Martha Stewart merchandise. It is in her contract that coupons can not be used towards the purchase of her products either.

Hope that helps.

I think the coupons are only good on Regular Priced items, not sale items; could it be that whatever else you bought was already on sale? With the Cricut stuff, coupons usually aren't eligible but it sounds like they are on sale so no coupon needed! I was at Joann's a while back and bought something that was on sale so she wouldn't let me use my 40% off; I asked her to take it off the regular price since it would still be better than the sale price but she wouldn't; I was sure they had done this in the past.

Yeah, it could have just been that she totally forgot that the Michaels coupon does it automatically so she didn't stop to think about it not being that way.

You're right, Kathy. And you are right in that JoAnne's had done that in the past. It was something they changed some time ago. Michaels had done it for a short time but went back to their original policy partially due to the extra amount of time it took to get people through the checkout line.
