Last year, we saw the first two Presidents' Day-branded sales on February 8 from Sam's Club and JCPenney. We've also seen Presidents' Day sales start as soon as February 7 previously. We expected Presidents' Day sales to start as early as February 8 in 2019, too, but we're still waiting for their arrival. Expect them to begin any time now!
Tech is always a big category during Presidents' Day, and we don't expect this year to be any different. In 2018, Best Buy hosted a 4-day sale over Presidents' Day weekend. (It even offered early access to My Best Buy members.) Discounts covered MacBooks, smart TVs, laptops, appliances, iPads, and headphones.
Lenovo, HP, and Microsoft Store had notable Presidents' Day sales in 2018, too. Lenovo cut up to 75% off a variety of laptops, desktops, tablets, and accessories. HP took up to 55% off its site. Microsoft slashed up to $200 off Surface Pro tablets, cut up to $750 off laptops, and discounted Xbox One S console bundles to a starting price of $279.
If you missed out on the white sales earlier this year, you can still find plenty of deals on home goods around Presidents' Day. Look to stores like Pottery Barn to take as much as 70% off furniture, decor, and bedding. Target will likely offer up to 30% off select home items again; last year, it also took an extra 15% off furniture and rugs.
Clothing is yet another category to keep an eye on. In 2018, about 41% of the Presidents' Day deals we saw were clothing sales. Several of these events actually started around Valentine's Day, but lasted through Presidents' Day weekend (and even a few days after).
Mattresses are always popular over the Presidents' Day weekend. While specialty retailers like 1800Mattress and US-Mattress have been known to host sales, don't overlook warehouse clubs and department stores.
Last year, Sam's Club cut hundreds of dollars off select mattresses, while JCPenney knocked up to 60% off both furniture and mattresses. Plus, the Ashley Furniture Presidents' Day sale took up to 45% off furniture, mattresses, and decor, while Macy's slashed up to 20% off most items.
Don't expect many discounts on Valentine's Day gifts like chocolates, flowers, or those ubiquitous stuffed bears. After weeks of trying to entice romantic shoppers, retailers aren't typically feeling generous. If you're waiting until after February 14 to score discounted Valentine's Day gifts, you might be out of luck.
Valentine's Day and Presidents' Day sometimes fall within a few days of each other, so sales covering both holidays make sense. But even when the holidays are further apart, February sales still hang around through most of the month.
While Valentine's Day sales are often clearly marked, Presidents' Day sales might not be branded as such. No matter what the promotions are called, it's good that Valentine's Day and Presidents' Day fall so close to each other. It's always cool to have access to more deals!
