Celebrate Your Day Off With Presidents Day Deals

In case it slipped under your radar, Monday is Presidents Day. That means a day off from work for most employees, and a weekend full of deals and promotions.

While major retailers are typically wary of doing explicit promotions surrounding Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, they're happy to go wild with sales for President's Day. Macy's, for instance, takes 15% off with the code PRES, though it has its usual array of exclusions; see the website to see which brands and sections are excluded. Sears takes an extra 15% off spring fashions with the code ABELINCOLN, though we can't really imagine the 16th president wearing anything from the retailer's spring collection. The Gap is offering 30% off online through Monday when you use the code GAPBRIGHT, and up to 40% off in-stores on select styles.

Want to pick up some electronics? Best Buy takes 10% to 25% off major appliances through Monday, though some of its TV and computer deals are only good through Saturday.

Looking for kitchen supplies? Coupon site BeFrugal.com tipped us off that Pfaltzgraff offers 15% off site-wide with the code 13FEBPRES; you'll also get free shipping on orders over $49, lowered from the retailer's normal $99 threshold. Note that some items are excluded from the sale, though rather than post a list of exclusions a mile long like Macy's, Pfaltzgraff is just putting a green dollar sign icon next to all eligible items. The code is good through Tuesday.
