Almost all CVS stores activate their new weekly ads on Saturday by 6:00 p.m. Check with your local store for their policy and also read this former post about the problems if one item is on sale both weeks. Also, Sunday, Monday & Tuesday only
sales will not produce extra bucks if purchased on Saturday.
On 3/27/2011 Stacey, a Simply CVS reader, left the following comment on the Simply CVS Facebook page:
"I wanted to give everyone a heads up...I was at my local store yesterday and the cashier was complaining that she didn't have anything to do because corporate had changed their rules about the overlapping sales. From now on the new sale prices do not change until 9 p.m. on Saturday night....So, unless your store is a 24 hr. store, you cannot get the new sales items until Sunday."
The purpose of the CVS Snippet Series is to give CVS shoppers morsels of information about the many variables that will help them get the most out of their weekly deal shopping.
