What to shop during Presidents Day 2023 — and what to skip
Like most three-day-weekend holiday sales, Presidents Day sales are usually centered on big-ticket home goods. That includes appliances, mattresses, furniture, rugs and select home tech, including TVs and vacuum cleaners, according to Kristin McGrath, shopping expert at cash back site RetailMeNot. You’ll see retailers slashing up to 40% off appliances, and you’ll likely get the most savings when you purchase an appliance suite rather than a single appliance, McGrath noted. She said shoppers can expect to see similar discounts on mattresses: “It's common to see king-for-queen specials, so you're getting a bigger mattress for the price of a smaller one.”
What's unique about Presidents Day sales this year is the savings will be steeper than previous years due to retailers’ having excess inventory, said Lauren Murphy, director at Wells Fargo. “Retailers came out of December last year slightly over inventory across many categories like apparel, and so they can layer [those deals] on with the timing of Presidents Day weekend happening during the seasonal shift,” she noted. Murphy added that retailers will likely try to get a jump start on discounts outside of big-ticket items during Presidents Day, but she said you'll see “more of a prolonged approach to those discounting strategies.” McGrath agreed, noting that some retailers will even maintain some Presidents Day deals into March.
However, Memorial Day and Labor Day bring weekend sales too, and there is no telling which weekend holiday will have the biggest discounts for shoppers. “If you think about appliances, like a dishwasher or microwave, it's going to be different than the demand of something like a TV,” Murphy said. “Maybe there's a better deal [later on], but you're also just taking a gamble.”
McGrath noted there are a few items she thinks you’re better off waiting until later on in the year to score deeper savings.
- Spring apparel: “Stores might tempt you with modest deals on spring apparel over Presidents Day weekend, but you’ll see the biggest savings if you can wait until spring has officially sprung, due to clearance sales when retailers try to offload spring stuff in time for summer,” McGrath said.
- Patio furniture and outdoor gear: Similar to spring apparel, outdoor items are usually higher in price as demand increases closer to the warmer months. “If you can wait it out, August through to October is actually the optimal time to purchase grills, patio furniture, garden equipment and other outdoor gear, when prices fall by as much as 80%,” McGrath noted.
