From Casper mattresses to Nordstrom’s clearance section, celebrate past presidents with major savings.

What is the point of Presidents Day, you ask? We have the answer: Saving some Benjamins. OK, it’s not just about the associated sales, but unofficially, that’s part of it — at least for us. With Presidents Day coming up on February 19, we’re gearing up to take a day off and score some savings, courtesy of our founding fathers. While it isn’t the most exciting holiday of the year, it is one of the first following New Year’s Day. Why not shop to celebrate?

Traditionally, mattress and furniture brands offer the steepest discounts during the holiday weekend (perhaps because Lincoln was known for having a massive bed?), but clothing and beauty brands we love are slashing prices ahead of the government holiday, too. 

Whether you’ve been waiting to upgrade your sleeping situation or want to score some wardrobe essentials before spring officially arrives, Presidents Day is the time to commit. From saving hundreds on furniture to snagging designer clothing at a fraction of the price, here are some of the best Presidents Day sales we’ll be shopping for this year.

We’ll never miss a chance to sing the praises of one of our favorite kitchen brands, Our Place. Right now, you can save up to 28 percent off dishes and dinnerware in the sale section, or save big by bundling items like the Cookware Set, which is 30 percent off when bought together. Upgrade basic kitchen appliances like blenders, toaster ovens, and more, along with your pots and pans to maximize your savings (and style, because we guarantee these are easier on the eyes than what you’re currently using). Consider it early spring cleaning!

The family-owned brand is offering 20 percent off all cookware with code PRESIDENT through Feb. 19, so take the opportunity to pick up a versatile Signature Skillet, a gorgeous Dutch oven, or a loaf pan for your next banana bread endeavor.


It’s no secret that lululemon is one of our favorite activewear brands. From buttery-soft leggings to oversized sweatshirts, the brand’s We Made Too Much section is a treasure trove of savings.

If you’re on the hunt for some new shoes, look no further than Zappos’ sale section. Right now, deals start at 49 percent off, like discounts on trendy boots and snuggly slippers. That’s not all, though: The brand’s 25th birthday is also this week, meaning you can save even more because Zappos is “launching discounts like confetti.”
