Joann Fabric and Craft stores offer two discount programs to Project Linus blanketeers, a discount card and bulk purchasing discounts. Here is how to sign up for either program.
JOANN’s Discount Card
Project Linus blanketeers are eligible for 10% discount at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores when making Project Linus blankets! Following are the enrollment details. Remember, you must also have a Project Linus Membership Card (see below). If you already have the JoAnn’s discount card, you should not have to get a new one unless it has expired.
1. Visit the web page to sign up: http://www.joann.com/discountcardform/
2. Enter “Project Linus” in the Organization Name box
3. Enter your information (Name, Address, Email…) and follow the online directions
4. Your Non-Profit Discount Card will arrive in the mail within 3-4 weeks
5. Take your Non-Profit Discount Card, Photo ID and Project Linus Membership Card to your nearest Jo-Ann Store for validation
6. Save 10% on every* purchase!
MOST Jo-Ann’s cards EXPIRE in August. You must go back on the Jo-Ann’s site and order a new card. You do NOT need a new Project Linus membership card. Questions or needs for assistance should be directed to the store manager.
*Note: Each Jo-Ann’s store seems to administer the 10% a little differently. You “might” get it off some sale items but “maybe” not. They “might” be picky about whether your purchase is for Project Linus or “maybe not”. You will just need to be happy with any discount they give you.
Project Linus Membership ID Card: If you need a Project Linus Membership Card, send Deb Miller an email or note, requesting one. Please include your name and address in the request. You do NOT NEED to renew these cards. If you have a current PL Membership ID Card, PLEASE use a black Sharpie or other pen and scratch out the EIN # on it. It has caused some confusion at some of the JoAnn’s stores. You should NOT get a tax exemption on your purchase.
Bulk Purchasing Discounts
Now Volunteers can take advantage of bulk purchasing discounts from JOANN’s for their Project Linus blanket supplies. First make an account with your email and a password (see below). You will see prices listed, these prices are the maximum you will be charged as the amount you order increases you will get a better price.
