Presidents Day has arrived, which means there are big savings available across products like mattresses, home goods, clothing and more. To get an idea of the best discounts to consider, we consulted Julie Ramhold, a consumer analyst at DealNews.com, who also advised us on what you can hold off buying. Clothing, for example, has made up more than a third of Presidents Day sales in years past, Ramhold noted. “This year we expect to see that trend continue,” she added. Mattresses and furniture will also see substantial discounts.
“If you’re looking to refresh your home, it’s a good weekend to shop,” Ramhold said. Although she acknowledged that Black Friday is the best time to shop for electronics like laptops, Ramhold noted that there will still be notable deals from retailers like Lenovo and HP. To better guide you through your Presidents Day shopping venture, we’ve put together the best deals and sales across furniture, appliances, clothing and electronics.

What you can hold off buying this President Day
Ramhold noted you can skip grabbing outdoor furniture and Android phones.
“It can be really tempting to upgrade your handset around Presidents Day. But the discounts — if there are any — won’t be that impressive,” she noted. Presidents Day will most likely be the last event with sitewide sales like these until Memorial Day weekend at the end of May.
“We may see a few events related to things like Easter or Earth Day, or even Mother’s Day, but we won’t see sitewide sales for much of those,” Ramhold said. “And if there are a few, they certainly won’t be to the level of what we expect to see when Memorial Day rolls around.”
