Question 24 hr Walgreens. Could I go at midnight

I have one 24 hr Walgreens, do you think I could go at midnight tonight and get a few deals. I just want to grab some of the B1G1 bodywash and diapers. Just curious because I have never tried this. Thank You

go about a half hour after or 1am - the RRs should have kicked in by now, but make sure to watch the prices because sometimes they don't kick in tell 6-7am

I would love to know as well! I was just thinking about doing this also because I am much better at staying up late rather than getting up early

Do What You Have To Do To Get The Sales Items

In my area (Riverside, CA) I am very lucky to have a 24-hour store for Walgreens, CVS and Rite Aid. Many times I find myself up late at night making up my battleplans for the sales that start at midnight.

I usually don't arrive at the stores until 12:30 a.m. or after in order to allow enough time for the registers to update with the new weeks sales prices. Although new sales prices may actually start updating several hours before midnight, the rewards associated with those sales prices don't upload or activate until sometime after midnight. Depending on the store, it may be as late as 5 or 6 in the morning before everything is completely updated. Usually however, the updates are completed by 1:00 a.m. or 1:30 a.m. The actual time varies from week to week and from store to store. It is very inconsistant. On occaision I will ask the cashier for price checks and current reward status for the various items I intend to buy during this updating process. Sometimes I am lucky and my items will already be completely updated quite early.

For those exceptional sales that I am fearful that I may entirely miss out on, I will go before midnight. I get my items early, place them in my cart and walk about the store until the register updates have finally been completed. I have had a few bad experiences where I needed to walk about the store for a couple of hours. It can be very tiresome sometimes. I have been forced into shopping just after midnight due to all the midnight and early morning shelf clearers. You do what you have to do to aquire the sales items. I frequently run into other couponers at midnight who are also trying to beat the rush on the sales items. For those really good sales, the stores can look like Grand Central Station in the middle of the night.

You will probably have to ask the night manager for a copy of the new sales ad. They are seldom made available as early as midnight. It isn't a high priority on their "To Do" list. I recommend doing midnight runs especially when there is a cheap diaper deal. There is never enough of any one size and the shelves are cleared quickly. The free body wash deals will also clear quickly. Become familiar with your particular stores updating schedule. At the very least you can find out if you will have late night competition from fellow couponers.

Check and see if you can buy the Sunday Advance edition of the paper. It will have the new ad in it. Here you can buy it at WalMart or Dollar Tree on Sat morning.

Heck yes you can.
My store is not tagged for the new sale, but most of the sales are in. If they're not, my store will correct them. It's the only time to go in my town if I'd like to catch a sale item-shelves are always wiped by noon otherwise. (And truck doesn't come til Thurs, so they barely get items out before ad ends Sat).
Also one of the night girls is about the only employee who doesn't huff & puff about Qs. She's very friendly and it's such a relief! Plus there isn't too many other customers in either.
Go, enjoy shopping!

The closest 24 hour store only had 1 Applied Nutrition Calcium shipped to them and I got it. I'm pretty sure the one lady doesn't' like me (she seems just plain unhappy). Thankfully there was a nice guy there who remembered seeing one. Yay free Calcium :-D

I went to my 24-hour Walgreens at 1:00 a.m. As I walked in the door the cashier, who knows that I frequently purchase register reward items, told me that the register rewards system was not updating properly and that it would probably be a couple hours before the system could be updated. I thanked her for letting me know before I got to the register with my items. I did purchase 6 Right Guard Anti-perspirants that were on sale B1G1F @ $4.49. I used 3 B1G1F coupons and got all six for $1.18 in Tax. The Right Guard Body Wash had already been cleared from the shelves. I'll go back tomorrow when they get the RR system updated. I'll also try going to a couple other Walgreens and see if they have any of the body wash. My trip was a disappointment but not a total loss.
