Went to Michaels yesterday and spoke with the assistant manager and she told me that Michaels will price match percentage discounts from Joann or other craft stores, but not exact prices...like the $38.88 Cricut cartridges. This is kind of neat though because if you have the Joann add from the paper and want the new EK Success punches, you should be able to take the add to Michaels and get them for 40% off instead of the 30% off Michaels is offering right now because Joann has 40% off all papercrafting supplies. That is a lot of discounted stuff.

Just thought I would pass on the info. I hope that all Michaels observe this policy. It seems as though they like to make up their own at the store level regardless of what corporate policy says.

Thanks for the info, very useful, I just wonder if every M's has this policy. I will check with our M's about that.

Our Michaels is the opposite, they won't honor the percentages, only the exact amounts. Except when it comes to the Cricut then they are not matching at all.

The 3 M's closest to me will only price match exact prices and they cut-out the portion of your ad that they are matching . They've never matched 'percentage off' sales for me.

That assistant manager doesn't know what she's talking about then.

The policy is to price match the product when it has a dollar amount. None of the stores (JoAnn's, AC Moore, etc.) price match percentage off ads. What they DO take are the percentage COUPONS.

different for each store or is their a nationwide corporate policy? I have

regarding this matter.
