Presidents' Day May Beat Black Friday for Discounts

By   

Black Friday may be famous for day-after-Thanksgiving discounts on electronics and other holiday gift items, but when it comes to clothes shopping, Presidents' Day sales are almost unbeatable. Data compiled by Shop It To Me show that clothing, shoes, and accessories are more heavily discounted during Presidents' Day sales than they are on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, according to ABC News' Consumer Report.

As we noted in a recent blog post, this month is the best time to find discounts on winter clothing and outerwear. Take advantage of some of the best discounts of the year by combining existing February deals with Presidents' Day sales.

The moral of the story: If online shopping isn't on your list of things to do over this long weekend, you may want to consider a change of plans.
