All About ALL YOU Magazine

by Tara Kuczykowski on September 28, 2008 · 80 comments

Just what is ALL YOU magazine you ask?

ALL YOU magazine is a magazine targeted at "value-conscious American women," and I think that probably sums up my readers pretty well (along with a few value-conscious dads too, of course)!

Now, you know that I'm not one to advocate actually spending your hard-earned money on a magazine subscription, but I think this one warrants an exception. Consistently month after month it's chock full of great coupons that you won't find anywhere else. Better yet, often there's at least one coupon that's for a free item. Check out the list of coupons in the ALL YOU October issue thanks to Courtney at Homemaker Hero

Where do I purchase ALL YOU magazine?

ALL YOU magazine can only be purchased at Walmart ($2.24 per issue) or through a subscription ($21.24 per year). However, readers have commented in the past that if you can find someone selling it as part of a fundraiser you can subscribe for as little as $20 for two years! The best deal I've found lately is going through Live Search to receive a 25% rebate when you purchase it from Magazines.com, making it only $14.99 a year.

Update: Now you can get ALL YOU right here on Deal Seeking Mom for just $13.70 for a 1-year subscription!!!

Thanks - I've been holding out on the All You subscription. I guess I'm so frugal I was waiting to "win it" on a blog but am not the "lucky winner" type I guess. ha ha. I figure 19.97 with a 4.99 cashback is as good as it gets so I'm officially a subscriber now which is good b/c Walmart is usually where I shop. Thanks for your Walmart deals posts b/c that's usually where I check first. I'm dying to know the area you are covering b/c I'm in Phoenix and some of the really good deals are never at my Walmart - go figure. Ok sorry for the long comment but thanks! Also I'm going to try to get adventurous and try to do a CVS or Walgreens deal soon (it sort of overwhelms me right now!!)

I picked up a copy tonight, but the price has gone up - it is now $2.24 (after discount) at Walmart - even more reason to subscribe!

Ooh, good to know. I'll update my post to reflect the new price. Thanks, Michelle!

Terri, my Walmart deals come from all over. I'm in central Ohio, so I post deals from my area, but I also post deals that I find on message boards and the like. It's a difficult store to cover since they price regionally and there are no store ads. My hope is that there should be something for everyone, and generally the prices are close, but I know that sometimes they may vary quite a bit.

Go to "qsp . com", this will take you to a subscription site where you can choose who benefits from your subscription and you can get the 18 issues for $24. About $1.33 an issue and you can choose which organization to support, not to shabby.

My son has the fundraiser through his school. If I sign up for the two-year subscription, it is only $20 plus I get a free gym bag. The bonus is that it helps his school and church.

Thanks, Amy. It usually takes 6-8 weeks to start receiving a magazine after your payment posts. While this is the standard, depending on when you purchased and where ALL YOU is in their label printing process, it can take up to 3 months to receive your first issue. If you check my new ALL YOU ordering FAQs, you'll find instructions for tracking your subscription.

There aren't any Walmarts around NYC, but I love the look of the magazine... So I got a subscription today. How do I get the upcoming issue(s), August, etc., until my subscription starts?

Donna, the ALL YOU website shows you should have already received at least one issue. I recommend you contact ALL YOU customer service. I don't handle the orders after they're processed and sent on. You can find instructions for how to look up your subcription on ALL YOU's site on the FAQs page, and you should be able to contact customer service directly from there. Make sure you ask them to credit you for the issues you didn't receive, and that will extend your subscription a little longer to make up for it.

I saw the post from lynn asking about her subscription & read the advice you gave her to check the site directly for information. I also am waiting--I now have another 2 questions. I was informed via email (they were quick, less than an hour) that told me I would finally get my first issue in September. I thought this was a monthly mag am I wrong? My expiration date is 07/01/11 according to their help desk info. Also the email they sent me says that my subscription is through Southern Living. I ordered via your link, so is this info correct or not? Thanks in advance for your assitance. :)

You can request to preview 2 issues of All You magazine for free at http://www.allyou.com. If you decide the magazine is not for you, just write CANCEL on the bill. I never prepay for a magazine subscription. I request to be billed and pay only AFTER I've received the first issue and, decided the magazine is something I'd like to continue receiving. That way I don't end up paying for either a magazine I didn't receive or one I don't like. Also if you write CANCEL on the bill and wait, many magazines will send you a special discounted subscription offer in order to get you to change your mind about not subscribing.

I just got my first mag in the mail this week. It took about 8 weeks for it to arrive so be patient, it's well worth the wait! Until you start getting them, Walmart sells them. My local library has older copies and I ask if I can use the coupons out of them, which they happily allow me to. Never hurts to ask!
