Presidents’ Day isn’t until Monday, but most of the holiday’s best sales are well under way. We’ve already spotted lots of deals on several Strategist favorites, including Instagram-viral bed frames, top-rated food-storage wraps, hydrating powder-cream blushes, and even our favorite Levi’s for men (with some discounts as much as 70 percent off). If you happen to be in the market for a new mattress, we’ve got you covered there too. We’ll be back Tuesday for even more sales coverage, but if you’re on the hunt for deals in the meantime, sign up for our newsletter.


Save up to 50 percent on select Amazon devices, including Fire tablets and smart TVs, through the long weekend.


It’s not technically called a Presidents’ Day sale, but Backcountry’s Season Send-Off Sale runs through the holiday. Lots of winter clothes, accessories, and gear are up to half off whether you’re looking to upgrade your cold-weather hike or chilly-morning dog walk.

Bed Bath & Beyond

There’s a little bit of everything on sale at Bed Bath & Beyond. Save up to 50 percent on pillows, bath towels, kitchen appliances, storage solutions, home décor, and more through February 21.

Best Buy

Along with deals on headphones, appliances, and Apple products, Best Buy is offering $20 off select best-selling Nintendo Switch games through Presidents’ Day.

Coach Outlet

Hundreds of markdowns on items like cross-body bags and smart watch straps are now an extra 15 percent off over at Coach Outlet through the weekend.

Crate & Barrel

Select furniture and décor are up to 60 percent off over at Crate & Barrel, including my favorite woven place mats.


SkinCeuticals’ C E Ferulic serum — a favorite of several dermatologists and countless beauty editors we’ve spoken to — took the top spot in our guide to the best Vitamin-C serums for its high concentration of vitamin C and patented, low-irritation formula. This weekend it’s 15 percent off at Dermstore with code SKINC15.


A bunch of best-selling styles (including our staffers’ favorite alpaca sweater) are up to 60 percent off through the long weekend.


Minimalist furniture brand Floyd is taking 15 percent off sitewide, including the brand’s ubiquitous modular platform bed frame. (It comes recommended by several Strategist staffers as one of the best platform bed frames.) Its hand-numbered, limited-edition screen-print posters are also included in the sale.

Hanna Andersson

Status-y baby brand Hanna Andersson, which makes some of our favorite pajamas for kids, is taking up to 30 percent off sitewide for Presidents’ Day.


Rarely-on-sale footwear brand Koio is taking 25 percent off sitewide, with no code required. My favorite of its styles, the Siena, is a very comfortable cross between classic loafers and Clarks Wallabees — I’d recommend going one size up if you plan to wear them with socks.


Everything is 15 percent off at Lesportsac this weekend with code PRESIDENT15, and I was delighted to confirm the discount applies to the brand’s limited-edition Dick Bruna collab too (shown below).


As part of its Presidents’ Day sale, Levi’s is offering 30 percent off nearly sitewide — including lots of Strategist-favorite denim for men and women — with no code required. The discount will apply automatically at checkout.


Take 20 percent off the already-on-sale colors of this vintage tee and other select items through February 24 with code SPREETIME.


Casper, Saatva, and Tempur-Pedic, oh my! So many mattresses are on sale that we’ve rounded them all up here.


In preparation for the retailer’s annual winter sale, Nordstrom has already added lots of new markdowns to its sale section.

Nordstrom Rack

Now through February 21, the retailer is taking an extra 25 percent off select clearance as part of its Clear the Rack event.

Pat McGrath

As part of its VIP Sale, Pat McGrath is offering 25 percent off purchases under $125 and 30 percent off purchases totaling $125 or more (the discount will apply at checkout). We’d put that discount toward the brand’s Skin Fetish Divine Blush, which Strategist beauty columnist Rio Viera-Newton describes as a “super-silky, creamy powder that melts into your skin.”


In another pre–Presidents’ Day sale, REI is offering up to 70 percent off select gear and accessories — including Strategist-favorite food wraps and stylish rain boots for kids — through February 20.


Strategist-tested washable rug brand Ruggable is offering 15 percent off best sellers this long weekend with code BESTSELLERS22. (It’s not the biggest discount, we admit, but it’s the largest we’ve seen since Black Friday.)


A handful of Strategist favorites — including Gabrielle Union’s go-to bronzing powder and one stylist’s pH-balancing scalp scrub — are up to 50 percent off over at Sephora. Plus everything ships for free with code FREESHIP.


At Skinstore, best-selling skin care and hair care are up to 25 percent off with code PRESIDENT. Plus, all EltaMD products are 20 percent off with code ELTA20. The Christophe Robin hair mask, below — which is on sale without a discount code — is “simply the best moisturizing hair mask I’ve tried in my life,” says Strategist beauty columnist Rio Viera-Newton.

Urban Outfitters

Urban Outfitters is celebrating the long weekend by taking an extra 30 percent off select markdowns on clothing, accessories, home goods, and more. Animal Crossing: New Horizons, for example, is the cheapest we’ve seen it.


Now through February 27, use code MINE22 for an extra 30 percent off select sale items, including beauty, clothing, accessories, home décor, and more.


Get up to 70 percent off furniture and décor during Wayfair’s Presidents’ Day sale, which includes deals on outdoor furniturekitchen toolsarea rugs, and much (much) more.

West Elm

West Elm is offering up to 60 percent off furniture and décor through the weekend as part of its warehouse sale.
