The Calm Before the Storm

Are you all resting up for your Black Friday shopping too? My plan is to hit as many stores as I can on Thanksgiving and head back out to finish everything up Friday. Rite Aid's Gift of Savings program starts Friday 11/26, but I'm worried that if I wait until then to do my RA shopping, the items I want will be out of stock.

CVS - these were tricky things to find. At one store, I found the Advil and not the Excedrin. At another, I found the Excedrin and not the Advil. At the third, I was able to find both, but that was only because I ran into a very nice manager who hunted around in the back for the Excedrin. She kept trying to tell me that the sale on Excedrin didn't start until later in the week. Maybe stores aren't putting them out yet and that's why they are hard to find? Have you all had better luck than me?
  • 11/21 - 11/24 - Advil PM (4 ct) $0.99, got back $0.99 EB (Limit 1) = FREE
  • 11/21 - 11/24 - Excedrin Migraine, PM or Extra Strength (8 ct) $0.99, got back $0.99 EB (Limit 1) = FREE
I didn't have any EB's small enough for these, so I used a money card I have from a return to pay.

These are not regularly carried items and some stores may have put them aside for the Black Friday ads.
One of the stores I work at pulled them all aside for Black Friday as that is when we will have all the couponers out looking for them. My other store just put them out with the regular sale items.

Thanks for the explanation, that makes a lot of sense.
