The first holiday weekend of 2024 is here. While Martin Luther King, Jr. Day isn't normally regarded as a major retail holiday, the truth is that there are some good sales out there. 

Additionally, the next big retail holiday isn't till February 19 (Presidents' Day), which is more than a month out. So if you're searching for a new 4K TV, mainstream laptop, or cozy winter duvet — you've come to the right place. 

I've been tracking deals for over 16 years and below I'm rounding up the best MLK weekend sales you can get. I'm comparing all of today's sales with price lows we saw last year and calling out which deals I think are worth your money. Additionally, I'mm be price checking retailers to see who's offering the very best price on items we've tested, reviewed, or personally own. For more deals, make sure to check out this weekend's best Amazon sales and our early Presidents Day sales guide.
