I didn't see this posted on here so I thought I would share. Joann's online has the 200 count packs for the 8.5x11 Cordinations smooth paper, and 160 packs of textured for $1.99 they are sold out online but if you print it out the ad they will ad match the price in the store. (I don't know if they accept ad matches by bringing it up on a smartphone as I don't have one, I always print it off) They also had the 12x12 tim holtz collection of distressed cardstock (36 pack) for $1.99 as well.

Here are the links if anyone wants to get their store to price match. Also they have gone to on the site where you can check and see how many your store has in stock.

Tim Holtz paper- http://www.joann.com/cor...6-sheets/zprd_11413960a/

Textured- http://www.joann.com/car...textured/zprd_11266483d/

Smooth- http://www.joann.com/car...r-smooth/zprd_11266491d/


Almost forgot to add I know these value packs some of the colors (mainly the orange and green for me) don't cut the best in my cricut, but I love this paper for backgrounds on my cards, or at this price for test cuts.

That's surprising. Did you talk to a manager? our store always matches their website. The guy at the register had to call his manager basically just to OK it since it was such a low price, but the manager didn't even come up they did it all over the headset things.

Sadly, it was the Mgr who said no. They had 3 employees there and they were all going back and forth with me. I put up a fight and they said their hands were tied...the price threshold was too low was the reason they gave...they can't mark down the paper that much, tried to tell me the computer would not let them. Glare I filled out a customer service thing at the website but I am not holding my breath. I called them a little bit ago to get a little more info for my complaint and was told again, by the manager, that there was nothing she could do, that price is just too low and the computer will not allow her to override the price by that much. I am sure there is a way, she just does not know how to do it.

Sounds like they are just being lazy. or something. I would call Joann's Customer Service in the morning (1-888-739-4120) make sure you have the manager's name and store number, maybe they can help you.

I have pretty much given up on Joann's. They are so inconsistent and NEVER match prices online. this is the most unfriendly company to it's crafters. The fact that they now consider create-a-sticker a "paper crafting machine" is a joke. I stopped supporting them weeks ago and even got a call from a manager who said "I wish i could do more...but corporate is very strict with us and I could lose my job." Shockingly I went to my michael's and they gladly took my coupons and rang up separately to make the most of my discount!

Never again Jo Jo you had your Mo Jo and lost it.

I am still happy with the Joann's near me. And I know the majority of the employees! For me it is a perk that I can use a teacher's discount on top of sale prices, but the Michael's near me (company-wide?!?) will only take the discount on regular price items.

Well, I just had to come back and post an update!! Thanks to CowgirlUp for giving me that phone number! I called this afternoon to follow up my email and they were fantastic!! Wub They called my local JoAnns and put me on hold...it took about 20 minutes but they came back and told me that the local manager was giving THEM a hard time TOO!! Do you believe that? So, they got it all straight and told me that I could go to the store and get my paper :) I went there and this same manager still had an attitude and told the other lady at the register "Yeah, they had to rewrite the whole code just for this one transaction" And I thought to myself, gosh, I hope they named it the CraftyMel code then!! hahaha! I am sure she knew that I knew she was lying because I just stood there with a smile and swiped my card! JoAnns corporate was wonderful!! Thanks CowgirlUp for the tip on a great deal and also for that phone number!!

I'm glad I'm not the only who stocked up. I got 4 of the textured, and 2 of the smooth last week when I first saw the sale, then went back on sunday and picked up 3 more of the smooth and they did a special order of 4 smooth and 4 textured...I think I'll be set on this paper for a while. lol. I seriously think I have a problem, but at that price I couldn't pass it up...haha!! Is there a 12 step program or something? Or do we just live with this???

This is good to know. I saw it online and out of stock. I will have to give it ago at my store. Did your stores carry those packs that had those quantities in them ? I don't understand how the website will have a certain price and the actual store will not honor them, that's the way Petco is.

My store is a good size J's and they carry them right next to the 50 sheet packs. On Joann.com you can go the products info page, and click locate in store, and put in your city,state or zip and it will tell you how many they have in stock.

Wow! That's a killer deal. Cowgirlup~ Thank you for posting. I've printed the screen and will be going tomorrow. Web site says they have 3; now lets see if they give them to me. I'm taking the phone number too. I've never had much luck with J's and coupons, without getting employees attitude. But for this price it's worth it.

Thanks for posting this. I printed the pages and headed to Js for lunch. The cashier couldn't believe the price, so he called someone else for assistance. She tried several things and nothing was working, so she told me that she couldn't give it to me because the register kept telling her the discount was too high based on the original price. I'm sure I had a puzzled look on my face, so I offered a few suggestions in the form of questions, and eventually it came out. But, she would not give me the 8.5 x 11 paper packs because the original price wasn't $19.99. I won't complain. I got 2 Tim Holtz and 2 12x12 Core'dinations.

The website didn't say how long its running but I've printed stuff off a few days before I went and they still price matched. There ad used to say it needed to be advertised in the last 7 days. just remember its not this price in store so you need to print it off and bring it with you to get this price.

you could always call your local store and see if they will price match it if its a few days old.

Wish I could had got the deal the rest of you did, but my Joann's sells this paper pack for 12.99 original price so I know they wouldn't match the price:( I was hoping to get a couple sets. They did have the 12 x 12 but I couldn't find it on the Joann's.com web site to show them.

I went to my J's today. Their price is Reg 12.99. However, since all the information matched everything else on the website they said they had to give it to me. The cashier was not happy with the manager's decision to give it to me for 1.99. The manager explained that I was right even though the price didn't match and her hands were tied. All I did was print out the page from their website and handed it to the cashier. She was like there is no way this is correct and was not at all happy that I still got the deal. The manager told her it must be a glitch but nothing we can do about it. I'm still stumbling over why the cashier was arguing with the manager.....

I love how the cashiers act like the money is coming out of their pockets!! I bet she printed out the ad and went to another store to get some deals for herself!.
