Frugals Summer 2014 publication

I have been SO excited since opening the newest edition of Frugals. This is a HUGE issue! There are over 130 advertisers in this issue alone, many of which are new! That’s over 130 opportunities for you to save money & help support local businesses. Keep in mind, if you aren’t able to put your hands on a print version of Frugals, you can always print the same coupons on the website.

Buchanan Subaru is having a summer clearance sale! They have over 4 million dollars of used vehicles available online right now and are top in owner loyalty in the region. They have a plush comfortable lounge for customers to enjoy while waiting for their vehicle to be serviced, and even offer Saturday service hours.

But, vehicles aren’t the only thing they tint—homes and business are also welcome. Present the coupon on page 13 and receive a FREE gift with any tinting purchase.
