You can call the store and ask. They may start at 4 pm. You don't have to buy anything, just get an item you know should be on sale and scan at the red machine.

it all depends on the manager on duty

i once went at about 6ish at a store that i knew activates early- i double check by scanning an item i know will be on sale and it rang up not on sale!

so i mentioned it to the cashier and he called the manager on the phone and he said " she will switch it over now for you " i was surprised ! all i had to wait was a few minutes and the early activation was switched on. i was also surprised the manager was sooo nice! (she later let me triple stack- something i never attempted before) its nice when everything goes your way for once!

Also, understand that it updates in alphabetical order, so, just for example, if you scan a Colgate item to see if it switched over, and you have an Olay item, you have to be careful that they have all switched over. I have the times down that my CVS managers change the sales. There isnt a set time, like someone else said, it really is up to the manager. I go into the store about 15 minutes to sometimes an hour before the change over starts, helps me figure out what they have, and get all my transactions in order. They have allowed me on multiple occasions to fill my carts and push them behind the counter till sales change over if I get done too early. My CVS's are AWESOME! HTH

Try scanning something and seeing if its showing up for the next day sale. That should let you know if it's kicked over yet or not. I really really REALLY wish the MCM would show if an item gave an ecb or not when we scan something. That would make it so much easier
