According to Forbes, new research shows President’s Day has better saving opportunities than Black Friday!!! One of the reasons is probably that retailers are trying to get rid of inventory, willing to part with it at an even lower price. Much of the “President’s Day Sales” exist well before then, as right now, there are winter clearance sales at every retailer. Don’t be fooled that discounts aren’t offered before and after that special Monday. Retailers are more likely to remove the “extra 20%” for a few days before the big shopping day only to put it back in effect so it feels new. That said, there are some stores that really do offer the deepest discounts on this rare Monday–a day that people are off with presumably nothing to do…besides shop. When sales were analyzed for an entire year last year, the study showed that President’s day was the holiday with the deepest discounts.
If you’re shopping on President’s Day, look for the following:
- Discounts on new arrivals. Snatch them up for Spring now–they won’t be on sale for awhile (though, if you live in a colder climate, you won’t be wearing these clothes until well into April, at which time, they will be on sale).
- Codes on already discounted items for end-of-season sales. By this time, stores will be giving it away.
- Free shipping codes. Most people are shopping online this day and retailers will be competing for business. You should have no problem finding a free ship code.
