JoAnn Deal – Fleece Fabric 30% off + Extra 15% Off!!

You know those no sew fleece blankets that are so warm and cozy in the winter and fall? Well,  I have a fantastic JoAnn deal that will save gets you 30% off fleece fabric + an additional 15% off your purchase… SWEET right!?!

Our daughter, Destiny, loves all things to do with comic books. She even works at a comic book store and helps plan the local Comic Cons in our area. I have been waiting for a good deal on this fabric so I can make her a blanket out of it for Christmas!

Right now, JoAnn has all their character fabrics on sale for 30% off + we have a promo code that gets you an extra 15% off your order. Normally the fabric pictured above is $14.99 per yard. I like to make my no sew blankets with a total of 6 yards of fabric, 3 for the front and 3 for the back.

The best deal I can normally get on this fabric is when they have the 40% off a regular priced  item or single cut of fabric. If this fabric weren’t on sale and I could use that coupon I be paying $26.99 just for the front 3 yards. I still need 3 yards in a contrasting color for the back.  You can normally get the anti-pill fleece in solid colors for around $6 per yard with a coupon. But you can only use one coupon per day so I would have to make multiple trips and I would be paying $45 for the complete blanket.

With this deal, the anti-pill fleece is on sale for $5.99 (3 yards, $17.97) and the comic fleece is on sale for $10.49 per yard (3 yards, $31.47).  Plus, I did mention a JoAnn coupon code for an extra 15% off my purchase so my final total is $42.02 and I didn’t have to make multiple trips… heck, I didn’t even have to leave the comforts of my living room!!

Now, obviously if you are wanting to make these blankets for much cheaper, try using contrasting colors in the solid fleece. We have one that’s purple and black. Maybe a red and navy or a pink and white.   If you did it this way, your price would only be $29.73.  They do also have some cute patterned fabrics for only $7.79 per yard too. Obviously, the licensed fabric cost more with the solids being the least expensive. Also, using 6 total yards is what I call the “adult sized”.  Coupon Dad is 5’11” and it covers him very well.  I’m only 5’4″ and I can really wrap up in it. If I were making this for a small child, I wouldn’t use 3 yards.  If you were making a baby blanket, I would only purchase 1.5 yards for each side. That cuts your cost in half!

To get this deal, visit JoAnn fabric and enter the promo code: KWNY272 to get 15% off your entire purchase. This deal is good through September 29, 2014 so hurry! 

If you want to see our complete list of coupons visit our JoAnn Fabric page. I know there is a 30% off a single regular priced item if you aren’t looking for something else!

Rumored Redbox Instant Shutting Down October 1st!

Rumored Redbox Instant shutting down on October 1st

Rumored Redbox Instant Shutting Down October 1st!

There have been some recent rumors popping up about Redbox Instant shutting down on October 1st. While we can’t confirm the validity of this…there seems to be signs pointing to it being true. This Reddit thread, the fact that they aren’t allowing new sign ups, and now the Redbox Instant social media channels seemingly going dark. See Below for more details on the new user sign ups and social media. This possible news only pertains to the Redbox Instant streaming service (joint venture with Verizon) and not the Redbox machines run by Outerwall.

Redbox Instant New User Sign Up Message

Here is what you see when you try to sign up for a new account. This message has been posted for awhile it seems.

Redbox Instant new user message

Makes it easy to infer the rumors may be true of Redbox Instant shutting down when they aren’t even taking on new business.

Redbox Instant Social Media

I also took a look at the Redbox Instant social media channels. They were using social media pretty aggressively to get the word out about their program at first. So it appeared it was a large part of their marketing strategy. Here is what I found.

Facebook: Their Facebook page hasn’t been updated since August 13th….a little over 6 weeks ago. Now I don’t know many thriving businesses that don’t take advantage of speaking to over 164,000 fans.

Twitter: Their Twitter account is even more desolate. No tweets since July 20th of this year. They have not responded to many customers tweets, good or bad.

Time to Move on?

In my humble opinion these are all signs that Redbox Instant may be coming to an end very soon. While it may not be October 1st….I’m guessing it will be sooner than later.

For you Redbox Instant users it may be time to start looking to move. I’ll have a new post together shortly with Here is a post I did with some great Redbox Instant alternatives for you. In the mean time make sure to check out our Redbox codes page to save on rentals at the Redbox machines. For now they are still up and going.
