Presidents Day TV deals are already proving extremely popular this year, and one of our favorite discounts available right now is the Samsung 55-inch S95B QD-OLED on sale for $1,597 at Amazon. That's $600 off one of the best TVs you can buy, period.
In our Samsung S95B OLED review, we praised this television for a wide variety of reasons including its excellent visuals, great sound and wealth of premium Samsung features. It even manages to fix the brightness problem that plagues even some of the best OLED TVs. Although the S95B does sacrifice true blacks in the name of improved brightness.
This is also a great TV for gaming with a 120Hz refresh rate, very low lag time and a generous four HDMI 2.1 ports.

Sackboy: A Big Adventure is one of the most overlooked PS5 console exclusives out there. It's worthy of a spot on any roundup of the best PS5 games thanks to its charming stitched-together world and surprisingly inventive platforming levels.
Even better, this charming little game has been seriously discounted for Presidents' Day. Right now, Sackboy A Big Adventure is on sale for $19 at Best Buy. That's $40 off its original retail price of $59, and a great deal for a platformer that is ideally suited for gamers of all ages.

The Nectar Mattress was already our pick for the best-value sleep surface, and thanks to this Presidents' Day sale, it's now an even more affordable option. Right now you can get a Nectar Mattress starting from just $359 for a twin-size. And if you need something a little bigger a queen mattress is on sale for $699 (was $1,049).
In our Nectar mattress review, we called the Editor's Choice mattress a tremendous value for the money. We found it's very comfortable (thanks to its five layers of memory foam) and it offers excellent pressure relief around your shoulders, hips, and back. Serious bonus points for offering an impressive 365-night trial and a forever guarantee.

Discounts on Apple products are another popular category during any retail holiday, and we've just spotted a new lowest price ever for the California-based company's latest tablet for Presidents' Day 2023. Right now, the 11-inch iPad Pro 2022 (WiFi/1TB) is on sale for $1,299 at Amazon — that's $200 off its full retail price.
Built around Apple's latest M2 CPU, the 2022 model iPad packs near-unbeatable performance into the range's trademark slick design. This 11-inch model packs a 2388 x 1668 Liquid Retina display with ProMotion (120Hz), Apple Pencil 2/Magic Keyboard/Smart Keyboard Folio support, and works with Apple Pencil hover, which lets you see a preview of your mark before you make it. You also get 12MP wide and 10MP ultra-wide cameras and a 12MP TrueDepth front camera.
It works great as a laptop alternative, and thanks to 1TB of storage, this particular configuration is ideal for power users. But if a beefy 1TB isn't enough for you, the same discount is also available on the 2TB model at Amazon.

Here's another epic Presidents' Day TV deal that's worth considering, the Samsung 65-inch Q80B 4K QLED TV is on sale for $1,097 at Amazon that's a $300 discount compared to its regular list price of $1,397.
Tom's Guide Editor Peter Wolinski bought the Samsung Q80B QLED in October last year and was highly impressed with the television. He cited excellent brightness, color reproduction and contrast as well as great viewing angles. And the audio experience was just as good: the Dolby Atmos speakers provided loud, distortion-free audio. The TV also has strong gaming credentials with a 120Hz refresh rate and four HDMI 2.1 ports.

Amazon reducing its own devices is a staple of just about every retail holiday, and Presidents' Day is no different. Right now, the Echo Show 8 (2021) is on sale for $74 at Amazon. That's a 42% discount compared to its regular retail price of $129.
This best-selling smart speaker sports an 8-inch HD display that is perfect for making video calls, watching video tutorials, or even streaming TV shows and movies. Plus, it can be fully integrated into your smart home setup and packs all the Alexa feature you'd expect from an Echo device.

Typically the best deals on smartphones are available if you opt for a monthly contract, but there are still a handful of Presidents' Day sales that will get you a new smartphone outright. Take this for example this Samsung Galaxy A53 on sale for $399 at Amazon.
We rank the Galaxy A53 as one of the best cheap phones you can buy, and now it's even more affordable. In our review, we were especially impressed with its ultrawide camera and dedicated night mode. It features a 6.5-inch AMOLED 2400 x 1080 display, 120Hz refresh rate, Exynos 1280 CPU, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. On the camera front, you get a 64MP main (f/1.8), 12MP ultrawide (f/2.2), 5MP macro (f/2.4), 5MP depth (f/2.4), and a 32MP (f/2.2) front camera.

If you're looking to make the clean-up after a Presidents' Day party a breeze, this Anker Eufy 25C robot vacuum is on sale for $96 at Walmart — that's a massive $153 off its list price of $249.
This is one of the cheapest robot vacs we've ever seen, and it comes from a well-known and reliable brand in Anker. The smart vac can be controlled via smartphone app or via voice commands. It features a triple brush cleaning system and can clean both carpets and hard floors. Best of all, it has built-in drop-sensing technology that prevents it from falling down a flight of stairs.

We rank the Bose QuietComfort 45 as some of the best headphones you can buy. And we're thrilled to see them on sale for Presidents' Day. Right now, the Bose QuietComfort 45 are on sale for $279 at Amazon. That's not quite the lowest price ever, but still a great discount on an excellent set of cans.
The Bose QC 45 offer enhanced active noise cancellation, better sound, and longer battery life than their predecessors. In our Bose QuietComfort 45 review, said they're a no-brainer for Bose fans who want to swap out their older QC headphones for something more modern, or shoppers who want first-class Bose noise cancellation at a cheaper price than the premium Bose 700.

Presidents' Day laptop deals include big savings on Apple MacBooks. Case in point, the MacBook Pro 13 (M2/256GB) on sale for $1,099 at Best Buy. That's a $200 discount on its regular retail price of $1,299.
In our review, we said "The Apple MacBook Pro 2022 delivers mind-blowing performance thanks to its M2 processor along with class-leading battery life" and we also loved the comfortable keyboard and vibrant display. The overall traditional MacBook design is starting to feel a little dated, but nevertheless, this is still one of the best laptops you can buy, and at this reduced price it's an even easier recommendation.

The Luna weighted blanket sits at the top of our list of the best weighted blankets you can buy. (I personally own one and love it). We gave it a good review because it has a comfy, breathable cover and its glass bead filling provides even, relaxing pressure across your entire body. Personally, I find that it helps me fall asleep faster at night and I love using it when watching Netflix on the couch. Various styles/sizes are on sale. However, Prime members can get the queen in light grey for just $59.49. An extra 5% off discount (click the coupon box underneath the price to activate it) drops the price to $56 at final checkout. Make sure to check out our Luna Weighted Blanket review for our full thoughts and our weighted blanket sales page for more deals.

If you consider French fries a guilty pleasure, the Ninja AF101 might be able to help. While it won't make them a superfood (we can only wish), the AF101 will let you make fried using significantly less oil, which in turn will make them less bad for you. In fact, this air fryer can produce crisp and tender results in a matter of minutes, whether you're cooking fries, wings, calamari, or anything in between.
