I know for me, Tuesday night is the best night (after 8pm) to do the deals that end at midnight Tuesday. My stores (Albertsons and Vons) restock at 7pm on Tuesday nights. CVS, I like to shop Saturday evenings at 7:30pm as my CVS has both the past week and the upcoming weeks deals active in the computer system until the store closes on Saturdays. The stockers are in the aisles (so I can ask the questions and they can get what I need if it is not yet stocked) and the new tags are going up.
It kind of depends on your store and the managers stocking schedule. But, I cannot say it enough....rainchecks are the greatest so that you can lock in your price when the sale is over and the shelves are packed (as long as your coupons don't expire). Rainchecks are good for approx. 2-6 weeks depending on your store. However, the store cannot extend your coupon to fullfill the raincheck. Does that even make sense? haahahahahah

Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)
No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
