    If you're looking for All You, find your Walmart's magazine section. Some are at the front of the store, some are back near electronics.

    Thanks for the CVS info leeandkaren! I just posted it in its own thread.

  • ncsualum09 Oct 16, 2011

    another idea about All You, I just got a great deal on a subscription by buying a voucher (from one of the "group buying" sites: groupon, living social, etc. ) for magazines.com. Their normal price is $34 for 2 years (so $1.42 an issue) and the voucher made it half off. I know the deals tend to cycle from site to site, so that is something to look out for :)

    Okay, just heard about an event at ALL CVS stores next Sunday, October, 23rd from 9 am - 5 pm. If you bring your child in dressed in their Halloween costume, they will get a gift bag with $5 worth of candy, toys, or other trick or treat supplies and a $10 in coupons for additional Halloween products and a coupon for a free 5X7 with a free in-store costume photo shoot! Here's the link on Fb:

    Hi semclean - no public classes scheduled for Chapel Hill at this time. I do have a class in Durham on November 12 that is open to the public. You can find the registration details on my website at www.smartspendingresources.com. COuponing can be frustrating in teh beginning but the class helps to sort out the policies and which stores double, how much they let you double, how to find coupons, how to organize them and how drug store deals work. It's a lot of info a 3 hours.

    NOTaYankee - You may want to get a subscription. You can get it for about half the cost of the shelf price if you google ALl You deals. I locked in a 2 yr subscription for .80 per issue a few months ago when there was a deal available.

    I am having a hard time finding the All You magazine. I saw it once in a display at the entrance to Walmart but haven't seen it since. Anyone have any ideas? I'm in Raleigh near the Triangle Towne Center.

  • semclean397 Oct 15, 2011

    Thanks to both of you, I later found the info on the smart spending resources under the tab "weekly deals". Faye, I am in the Chapel Hill area and see that you have a private class and was wondering if you are going to have a public class in the area. I have been experimenting but find it very frustrating. Please help.

    semclean, welcome to CVS deals! I suggest you read the following article about the drug store reward programs including CVS Extra Care Bucks.


  • nceducator79 Oct 14, 2011

    Extra care buck...it prints out when you buy certain things. You can use it towards your next purchase. It's like money...in CVS currency. Sort of like Kohl's $10 cash back events.

    Could someone explain what a ECB is? Thanks
