Here are some previous similar questions - many with links to other similar questions with answers (there will be duplicates between those) - weekend cleaning sometimes same price if scheduled on a Saturday during normal working hours IF they routinely work a normal 6-day work week, otherwise commonly 50% higher on weekends and 50% or 100% highaer on holidays and holiday weekends - and some companies increase that 50% to 100% higher at night and sometimes also on Sunday, so consider how critical this is.

Also, especially if looking at camera run, may pay to have them come and clear the blockage, then come back on a weekday to do thorough routing/jetting and then a camera run to inspect for pipe damage, open joints, etc - doing only the normally $100-200 blockage clearing at the higher weekend rate. Particularly if this might migrate into an excavation job to repair a broken place in the pipe, which simple blockage clearing might punch through for a temporary fix for a couple of days. Course, no guarantee just clearing the blockage itself, without routing/jetting out the rest of the pipe, will clear if effectively for some days - sometimes a blockage will just move downstream a little ways and plug off again if the entire pipe if not cleaned out (especially if heavily built up with soap acum, fibers, and grease buildup), or if roots or broken pipe are the problem punching through might drain the blockage but not open it up enough to prevent an immediate reblockage with solids at next toilet use. Can be a gamble on the short-term fix issue.
