Haven't heard of this, yet. It is a good sales plus. They do a code read for you and you buy your parts from them. Even swap. I spent the hundred dollars or so and bought my own. Saves a trip.

I think that Autozone will read the codes for you but will not clear them anymore.

Our local Autozone still reads and clears codes. Had it done less than a month ago. I'd try another store.

Did a quick check on their website and found no mention of code reading/clearing, only this:

"Free Testing

Some places charge you for testing your car, but at AutoZone, it's free.

Don't buy a part you don't need. AutoZone will test your car's parts for free. We can test your car's battery, alternator, starter and voltage regulator while they're still on your car. We can also give your car a complete starting and charging systems test. You can also take your alternator, starter or battery into our store and we'll test it. In most stores, we can also test voltage regulators, control modules, coils, throttle position sensors (TPSs) and other engine management components."

Next time I'm in a local store I'll have to remember to ask.
