Presidents Day sales will be here before you know it. The retail holiday will take place on February 20, 2023. However, the vast majority of Presidents Day sales will start well before that date. In fact, a handful of sales have already started. 

As the first major retail holiday of the year, we expect to see extensive deals on 4K TVs, kitchen appliances, laptops, and more. Presidents Day mattress sales are also aggressive and can help shoppers save from $200 to $500 off our editor-recommended beds. So if you're planning a major purchase and can afford to wait a few more days, you'll likely save a considerable amount. 

That said, we expect to see many mediocre deals that you should avoid. So we're helping you pick the best Presidents Day sales by rounding up the best deals you can get. Below you'll find a few early deals you can get right now. 

When is Presidents Day 2023?

Presidents' Day 2023 falls on Monday, February 20. That's a week after Valentine's Day 2023. However, in terms of sales, Presidents' Day sales tend to gravitate toward tech and home deals, whereas Valentine's Day sales offer discounts on flowers, and jewelry. Presidents' Day offers a wider selection of deals. 

What should I buy on Presidents Day?

TVs will see some of the biggest discounts on Presidents' Day. Last year, smart TVs dropped as low as $89, whereas OLED TVs dropped to $999. We're already seeing OLED TV deals from $599, so we could them drop a few bucks more to $569 as we saw in November. Kitchen appliances — both large and small — will also enjoy steep price cuts. Expect to see deals on major brands like KitchenAid, Ninja, InstantPot, and Nespresso. 

Are there mattress sales on Presidents Day?

We expect to see a wide range of furniture sales on Presidents' Day. However, Presidents Day mattress sales will play the biggest role come early February. Mattress manufacturers like Purple, Casper, Tempur-Pedic, and Nectar will offer their first major sales of the 2023. In terms of discounts, you can expect to see mattress sales that take from $100 to $500 off beds in our best mattress guide. Also, expect to see weighted blanket sales, bedding sales, and more.
