February is a month where people try and budget for expenses related to Valentine’s Day. Don’t forget that there are also Presidents’ Day sales to shop! You might be in need of some big ticket items that tend to be included in those sales.
Coats, hats, scarves, and other cold weather gear have already been put on the clearance racks for up to 70% off. Those discounts will increase during the Presidents’ Day sales. You could end up with an additional 10% to 25% off the original price.
It may seem strange for winter clothing to go on sale now when many states are covered in a whole lot of snow. The reason for the clearance is because stores need room for the spring clothing that is starting to arrive. The result is an awesome deal for people who need to replace worn out winter gear. You will still have time to wear it before the weather warms up.
It has become traditional for appliances to be included in Presidents’ Day sales. Now is a good time to replace an ailing refrigerator or dishwasher with a new one. You will also find deals on washer and dryers. To get the best discount, you should definitely do some price checking. Compare the price of the appliance you want to buy at Sears, Best Buy, and other stores that sell them.
For some reason, mattress sales have become something you can expect to see included in Presidents’ Day sales. Several different stores that sell mattresses are going to be competing for your dollars. Take the time to price check before you go into the stores.
In addition to getting a discount on a new mattress, you may find other interesting offers. Some stores will have a deal in financing a mattress. Others might throw in a brand new box spring for free. Make sure to find out if the store will deliver your new mattress and take away your old one. If not, then you will need to make your own arrangements for that.
The Presidents’ Day sales almost always include discounts on furniture. Now is a good time to get a new couch, dining room table, or whatever else your family needs. The reason why furniture goes on sale in February is because the stores need to unload the product from the previous year. The new 2015 line will be arriving soon.
What if you’re snowed in?
It can be less than ideal to try and drive home with a new couch, mattress, or refrigerator if you live in a place that is covered in snow. You can still get some great Presidents’ Day deals if you visit the websites of the stores you want to shop. Some will offer free shipping and discount codes.
