Assuming the bank is open, can they do this? If they do and your receiving bank is open, can you get your money on Saturday?

for a true "wire," no. Wire transfers go through the Federal Reserve, which is closed on weekends and federal holidays.

If the originating bank and receiving bank are the same (i.e., Bank of America), they should be able to do an account transfer and avoid the Fed. This they can do anytime they're open.
