I apologize if this has been discussed already. I've been away from the site for a few days. A friend of mine who shares my passion for Michaels' store coupons called me a few days to alert me to this. She found a book in the store and took it to the register with a coupon and was told that she couldn't use the coupon. When asking why not, she was informed by the cashier that the store policy changed six days prior and that coupons could no longer be used for books or magazines of any kind. When my friend looked at the coupon later, she discovered that exclusion is now printed on the coupons.

I am so disappointed!!! Usually, if I don't use a coupon for anything else, I can find a book or magazine that I want. Like my friend, I am going to complain to Michaels' corporate office.

Those of you who use their coupons for books and magazines, I encourage you to do the same. Hopefully, if customers complian loud enough, they will change that policy.

I was there last weekend and was told the same. It was very disappointing to me. Now I'll opt to subscribe to the magazine I usually buy at Mike's. It's the magazine that brings me to the store and of course I always buy more than just the magazine.

You should complain. For a brief time, they excluded Wilton students kits from being bought with a coupon. That only lasted like 6 weeks. 1-800-MICHAELS

In the meantime, you can buy the latest issue of the Michaels crafting magazine in the store for $1, which contains a coupon that DOES NOT INCLUDE the exclusion for books and magazines. icon_smile.gif

hmmm, I was just in the store today and saw Peggy Porshen's book on sale .I took it to the casher and asked her if my coupon will wotk on it, as coupons do not work for sale items, but she told me coupons do not work for books any more,but she'll try any way .And BINGO it worked and guess what I got the book for $7 bucks. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Wow, I hope you ran out of that store because you got a steal!! LOL

I was happy to get it for $15 with a 50% off coupon some time ago. Aren't her cakes gorgeous?

Congrats on a great score!
