This American holiday is celebrated every year on the third Monday in February. Although it was originally established to commemorate the first U.S. President, George Washington, the day is now widely recognized as a time to honor all presidents who have served the country.
Presidents Day falls on Monday, February 19 this year, but that doesn't mean sales are limited to one day only. Because this is a three-day weekend for most Americans, retailers offer Presidents Day sales over several days. Savings typically start on Friday (sometimes earlier!) and end that Monday.
As with many holiday sales, you're likely to find discounts on products across a number of categories. However, there tend to be deeper discounts on the following:
Some of the biggest discounts you'll see fall under this category. Retailers are eager to make room for spring fashion and related products, so prices on winter items are heavily reduced. Need a coat? Sweaters? Ski gear? Now is the time order them.
Refresh your home for the upcoming season! Stay alert for offers on kitchenware, small appliances and tools. Add a little something to your decor, find gadgets to make meal prep faster or start that home project you've been putting off.
Though not as widely discounted around this time, a few big name brands will offer discounts on items like laptops or tablets. Last year, Microsoft and Dell offered up to 50% off select products.
You may also see a few good offers on digital cameras and smartphones. In January, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) introduced 2018 models to the world, so retailers are now busy getting rid of last year's inventory.
Tip: For a wider variety of products at low prices, visit department stores like Macy’s and Nordstrom.
These offers may not be the same for 2018, but knowing what was offered last year is a great way to plan ahead.
