How to Get a Price Match at Joann

According to the Joann price match guarantee, you are able to get any item in the store for the same price as a competitor’s advertised price. You can do this in a Joann store or online, depending on your preference.

In order to get a price match in the store, you will have to bring an entire advertisement showing the competitor’s current price for the item in question.

If you don’t have a physical copy, bring in a digital copy of the ad on your phone.

The store associate will then verify the price and give you the Joann price match.

To get a Joann online price match, you’ll have to fill out a form on their website with some basic information about the competitor’s advertisement, such as the competitor’s website and a screenshot or link to the item’s lower price.

Make sure to also send in the item number of the item you want to purchase as well.

You can forward this information to or call the company at 330-735-6576. You can also submit a form to customer care.

Does Joann Have a Price Adjustment Policy?

Currently, Joann does not offer a price adjustment policy. This means that if you buy an item and it goes on sale soon after, you will not be refunded the difference in price.

This policy is subject to change, so it’s always best to check with customer service or a store associate before making your purchase.

If you’re set on buying an item but are worried about it going on sale soon, you can always try to use another money-saving method at this retailer.

You can use Michaels coupons at Joann, as they will accept competitor coupons.

Just make sure the coupon is for a percentage off your total purchase or a specific dollar amount off, as they will not accept coupons that are for free items or that require a minimum purchase.

4. Stack Coupons

Not all Joann coupons can be stacked, but some can. For example, you could use a 20% off a total purchase coupon with a 40% of a single item coupon.

5. Check Out the Remnant Fabric Bins

In the back of every Joann store, you’ll find remnant fabric bins. These are fabrics that are left over from other projects and are sold at a deep discount.

The selection will vary from store to store, but it’s always worth taking a look to see what they have.
