Early Activation

OK, so about a month ago I accidentally figured out that my store does early activation. How early on a Saturday does this take place? My Hershey Q expires this weekend (many of us are anxious about this!).

When I accidentally bought something for the next week on a Saturday, it was already evening. So not sure if there is a switch time or what...

TIA!

You can call, the cashiers generally know about it so you can call now if you wanted.

At my store the registers start downloading all the sale prices at 4 PM. But it can take a little while depending how much stuff is on sale. My stores assistant manager told me to come in a little after 4 to avoid things not ringing up correctly. I guess there are some people who wait by the register until that clock strikes 4 then freak out when their items don't ring correctly.

If you dont want to ask anyone, try finding something that is on sale next week but RR this week. Then they RM can tell you if the new sales are activated. 4pm is usually about the time for stores that do it.

At more store it seems whoever is working Sat afternoon switches things over. One Saturday I went in and it was done at 4:30. The next Saturday the cashier said she set it to switch over at 5:45 and it wasn't switched at 6:15 when I checked out she had to force the ECB...

My store seems to be by 5, but I always like to have a sale item for the next week in mind to scan so that I know it's active.

My stores usually start at 4pm--but be careful and make sure you scan everything if you're ready to go at that time--the system changes over by categories, so one thing that is on sale may ring up the correct price while another doesn't. Usually my store is fully changed over by 4:15pm though. I'm usually done and ready to go by 4, but I've had to sit and wait for ALL items to change a few times

so if I scan my items and the prices are activated, does it mean the ECB will print without issues also? I am quite worried about that!

Mine activates at 4. It takes anywhere from 20 to 45 min (if its a big ad) to download. I do the price check at the red machine to figure out when its kicked in

The week the All was bogo it didn't kick in till 4:50! Luckily I didn't have anywhere to be so I just browsed around

Usually it works! Once in a while it doesn't, but my store will force print them for me (they usually give me an ad when I walk in too--I have a nice one!).

Agreed!

Also be aware that the register picks the best price for each product. So if a product is sale priced the week you are in but full priced with ecbs the EA week, you will get the sale price instead of ECBs.
