Clever Knits on Groupon!

Hello to those of you who found us on Groupon! Whether you're a new or future knitter or crocheter, or a regular who found an amazing surprise bargain, we look forward to seeing you soon! We're getting lots of questions about how these can be used, and want to clarify some of the FAQ. This is our first Groupon, too, so please accept our apologies if we're a bit confused as we stumble through this.

Here's a quick summary of the rules from the Groupon website:
Expires in 1 year. Limit 2 per person, may buy 2 additional as gifts. Limit 1 per visit. Reservation required for classes. Not valid toward sale or clearance items. Must use in 1 visit. Tax not included. Not valid with other offers. See the rules that apply to all deals. You must use 100% of the coupon in one visit.

And some extra clarification:
  • You may only use ONE Groupon per day.
  • You may use a total of TWO Groupons per person over the course of the next year (through the expiration date of 01/18/2012). The Groupon website allows each person to buy FOUR total - "Limit 2 per person, may buy 2 additional as gifts." We'll be keeping track of who you are and how many you've used, so if you did buy four, you'll need to find a friend or two to whom you can give or sell your extras.
  • If you pre-register for a class with one Groupon, you may not use your other Groupon on the day of that class.
  • The $25 Groupon amount does not include tax. Pre-tax total for your purchase must be at least $25, so be prepared to pay sales tax. Note that we do not accept credit cards for amounts under $15, so bring a few dollars cash with you for sales tax. Vista, CA sales tax is 9.25%.
  • You may not combine your Groupon with any other offers - that includes other Clever Knits coupons, sales, specials, clearance merchandise, stamp cards, etc. It's valid on full price classes and merchandise only.
  • You may use your Groupon on private lessons! We charge $20 per 30 minutes, so you'll need to find some yarn to buy with the remaining $5, or pony up the extra $15 to upgrade to a full hour (you still can't use more than one Groupon).
  • Your Groupon purchase is not eligible for stamps on your stamp card.
  • Your Groupon may not be used for special orders. Must be used on in-stock items only.
  • Your Groupon may not be used to purchase Oink Pigments products.
  • Other terms & conditions may apply. See store for details.

Got all that? Whew! So how do you sign up for a class?
  1. See the list of our current class offerings or come pick up a schedule in the store.
  2. To sign up online, just email us with your Name, Phone, Email, and attach that Groupon! You will be considered pre-paid and that Groupon will be used to pay your class fees. Most of our classes are $25; if your class is more, you'll need to call us to pay the difference over the phone with your credit card. Some classes include supplies in the class fee; others are additional. Verify this before you sign up for your class.
  3. To sign up in person, just bring your Groupon in with you.
  4. To sign up over the phone, call us at 760-806-6744 and have your Groupon ready. We'll need your name, the name on the Groupon (if it was a gift), and the number under the barcode in the bottom right corner of the coupon area.
  5. If you sign up online or over the phone, be sure to show up 15-20 minutes early for your class so that you can pick out your supplies.
Please note that once you are signed up for a class, that Groupon is used! Class registration can not be transferred, rescheduled, credited, nor refunded in any way, so please be certain that you are able to make the date before you sign up. We are not able to make any exceptions to this policy.
