I would call corporate. Michaels policy regarding coupons is you can use a competitors coupon on one item and a Michaels coupons on one item in the same order. Either the employee didn't know this or the Manager or District Manager are telling them this

While I cannot comment on Joanns, I will say that I read (in the Washington Post?) that merchants such as Bed, Bath, and Beyond may need/or are considering reducing the coupons as it's harder to compete in today's marketplace. The article stated that BBB was late to the game online and are now trying to improve on that because their coupons eat into the profit so much and now all customers in-store have come to expect to use a coupon (not just as an incentive, but an expectation). Brick-and-mortar stores just can't survive that way.
I've worked at BBB and a certain craft store, the coupons are get people into the stores, and to think they are getting a huge deal. It works. The items are so marked up, the coupon maybe brings it down to what would be a "regular" price. they are still making a profit.

Often when a coupon says not valid on certain brand, it's because that company has told the store not to allow it.

A lot of stores are getting strict with their coupon policies due to rampant abuse. So the majority of us pay for the greed of a few.

I am not a fan of Joanns because of the game they play with their coupons. They'll put one out that says 40% off all regular priced items, and then mark everything in the store down to make it useless-and papercraft items are never not marked down. Ever.
