President’s Day 2013, which is tomorrow, February 18, is a day on which Americans remember and honor the life of founding father President George Washington. Many Americans will also be enjoying a day off, and retailers are offering some great Presidents Day sales to draw in shoppers with a little extra time and money to spend. In its latest consumer report, leading finance website GoBankingRates.com investigates Presidents Day 2013 sales and identified trends that can help shoppers save money.
Presidents Day sales are traditionally in the realm of local furniture stores and car dealerships, but more and more, it’s becoming a big day for online shopping, finds GoBankingRates.com. This is in line with trends of the past few years, as shown by a survey conducted by Shop It To Me of 2011 online holiday sales, which found that Presidents Day was second only to Labor Day in offering the steepest discounts to online shoppers, at an average of 46.7% off. This survey is the most recent of its kind.
“Are Presidents Day sales worthwhile? That depends on what you are buying, and where you are looking for it,” says GoBankingRates.com expert contributor, Clay Wyatt. “This year the Presidents Day sales are trending towards snow gear, apparel, home goods and items for children and babies – and offer the best rewards to online shoppers.”
