Wondering if they will accept it or not because I've heard somewhere before that they won't take over 50%.

I have in the past, yes.
According to the coupon policy they sent me, they did not mention a % off limit.

Thanks. I was thinking of getting another artbin pencil box to sort my paper strips into and J's doesn't have it.

ooooh! you mind sharing that policy w/me?!?!?!? Oh, but you're in Canada, right?

My M's does the same...they won't honor a 50% but they'll at least treat it like a seperate 40%

I don't know if it's based on location, but I've been able to use the 50% off from ACM and M's at each other at the full value. ACM will also take the M's app coupon. It might also be because they are {almost}across the street from each other.

I never thought about J's. I might have to try that...

I've never had a problem with 50% off either. But I'm wondering about the 60%. Guess I'd have to go to find out for sure.

Yes, I used it last night.

Now, will Js let you use the Ms 25% off total purchase (even sale items) coupon? Cuz you know when Js has a good coupon EVERYTHING is on sale.

Here is the coupon policy I received from Michael's. I contacted the US chain because that is where I shop most often. Hth!

Thank you for inquiring about Michaels' coupon policy. It should not vary
by store. The basic premise of our policy is on your receipt: "Our coupon
policy is to accept one coupon type per customer per day." Type refers to
what is being discounted, not the form the coupon takes, so competitor
coupons fall under the same rules. Something to note with our competitor
coupon policy, though, is that we only accept competitor coupons that are a
percentage off the regular price of an item, and do NOT accept competitor
coupons for a percentage off sale price items. Below is the current
guideline utilized in our stores.

The Michaels percent off (40%, etc.) any one regular priced item coupon is
only valid for the dates shown on the coupon; reproductions or electronic
images are not accepted. Internet/email coupons are not considered
reproductions. Consumers are limited to one coupon type per customer per
day (see types below). The coupon must be surrendered at the time of
purchase and may not be combined with any other coupon, offer, sale or
discount. Cashiers are not permitted to override sale prices to the regular
price in order for customers to use coupons or discount offers.

Michaels coupons may not be used to purchase gift card, shopping cards,
gift certificates, in-store parties or class fees. Coupons are valid in
Michaels stores only and excludes clearance items, buy and get items,
special order custom floral arrangements, books and magazines, St. Jude
Bear, special order custom frames and materials, Sticks and Stones,
Brushstroke Portraits at Michaels, digital frames, Yudu machine, Gypsy
Brand, Brothers Products and all Cricut and Slice products. Quantities are
limited to stock on hand. Void where prohibited.

Type 1 - % Off Any One Regular Price Item - Newspaper, In-Store Promotion,
Bounce Back, Internet or e-mail
Type 2 - % Off Entire Regular Price Purchase - Newspaper, In-Store, Bounce
Back, Internet or e-mail
Type 3 -% Off Entire Purchase - Regular Price and Sale Newspaper, In-Store,
Internet or e-mail such as 15% Off Entire Purchase including Sale Items
Type 4 - Any type Bonus Coupon - Newspaper, In-Store, Bounce Back, Internet
or e-mail such as 50% Off Handcrafted Floral or $5.00 Off a $50.00
purchase.
(Multiple bonus coupons are accepted.)

I know that this may sound confusing. Following are some examples of
acceptable coupon combinations.

(1) 40% off one regularly priced item coupon and (1) 20% off Entire Regular
Purchase (either a Michaels Stores Inc. coupon or a direct competitor)

(1) Bonus coupon for an extra 30% percent off tabletop frames and (1) 40%
off one regularly priced item coupon

If you have any other questions and/or concerns, please call us at
800-642-4235.

Sincerely,
Michaels Customer Relations

I'm in San Antonio, Tx and Michaels told me they accept Hobby Lobby and Joanns coupons. They also said whatever the coupon say's they honor, percentage and the stipulations put on the coupon.

The store I went to last night had a sign by the counter stating they will not accept any 60% off coupons from competitors and went on to explain they themselves don't issue coupons larger than 50%. I didn't notice this sign at any other store I've gone to in the past few days, so it might just be that store policy.

Paisley's, my J's will NOT honor the % off entire purchase - learned that lesson the hard way a couple years ago. It's worth a try, but find out before you fill your basket w/goodies . . . that's what I did - had a ton of stuff, waited in long line & was told "we don't honor % off coupons from competitors"

I wish they'd have one policy (like the online one) and stick with it at all stores. It's frustrating when they're different from store to store.

Nope. The nice cashier today told me they happily accept %off single item coupons, but not %off total purchase coupons or $x of a $xx purchase coupons ($5 off $25, etc.).

Didn't even think to try the J coupon at Ms.

It's not supposed to vary from store to store. They are supposed to follow the corporate policy. Perhaps those who have stores that give them a hard time should print out the policy and keep it with them to show the managers.

I was able to use my 60% off on the artbin case I wanted.

which totally makes sense because they can control when they put out their own 'extra off' coupons in conjuction with their sales. If you notice last weekend J's had their own extra 25% off coupon - but not a lot of stuff on sale/good sale.

I was surprised that M's took my electronic J's 60% coupon today. I could not find anything at J's that was not 40% off so I took a chance on M's. I found a 6x6 AC pad that was 5.99 before the coupon. It's so nice to know I can use them somewhere now....

They accepted the 60%- I bought the 120ct Prismacolor Colored Pencils. Originally $199.99 plus tax minus 60% and it's Made in USA. I bought the 132 ct in eBay but I'm not too happy with it. I read somewhere that the original ones made here are better. So I am happy. Can't combine it with their buy one get second 50% off.

Thanks to this thread, today at Michaels I was able to use the 50% off 1 item AND 25% off entire purchase in the same transaction. I never knew that. Asked the cashier, and she said yes. Nice!

Yep, you can use both. But it will not take the additional amount off the item that was couponed.

I worked at Michaels'last Christmas season.

They probably will not honor a 60%. They will only honor 40 or 50%.
Those are usually the only competitors coupons that they will accept.

They do not accept 25% off of total purchase, or $5 off of whatever, etc.
