All You was a women’s monthly magazine published by Time Inc. and sold at Walmart, Sam's Club and via subscription. The monthly magazine was first published in August 2004.[2] All You focused on value: Each story offered money-saving and/or time-saving tips, and the magazine developed a community of Reality Checkers, thousands of women who contribute ideas and tips that appear on many of All You’s pages. The magazine was closed in December 2015.[3]

Target audience[edit]

All You is targeted toward the average female Walmart customer and features models wearing clothing sold within the store.[4] It also contained stories featuring what the magazine considers "real women" who are diverse in age, appearance, background and culture.[5][6]

Value[edit]

All You included a large number of coupons, and even includes an index to help navigate through them. A weekly emailed newsletter titled All You Deals and Meals was available from the magazine which offers subscribers a preview of coupons available in future magazines.[7] Themed events were held in Walmart stores across the United States where "brand ambassadors" from the magazine act as "personal shoppers" to assist customers shopping for value. These events were sponsored by the magazine's advertisers.[8] The magazine also sponsors other events aimed at helping modern women.[9]
