5 things to know about Presidents' Day

The day that celebrates our nation’s 45 presidents is a day off for many, but that does not mean there’s a loss of things to do. Namely, online or IRL shopping offers one of America’s favorite pastimes at a fraction of the cost.

The holiday — like Labor Day, the Fourth of July and others — is chock-full of deals on things including the latest UHD television, mattresses and electronics. The big win for consumers is that many of the products on sale are rather pricey, so the 10%, 20% or 30% off slashes the price tag considerably, said Michael Bonebright, a consumer analyst with DealNews.com.

“When you’re spending hundreds or even thousands of dollars, even a small discount like 20% off can make a big difference,” Bonebright told NBC News. “If nothing else, these sales usually offer a good opportunity to get discounted or free shipping on bulky items.”
