Whether you refer to the second Monday in October as Columbus Day, Indigenous Peoples Day or simply a federal holiday, you will find as many sales as ever tied to the holiday weekend this year.
Of course, with Black Friday a month and a half away, not every mid-October sale offers decent discounts. But the following retailers’ sales are worth checking out.
As always, you can boost your savings from any sale by going through a cash-back portal such as Rakuten. Formerly known as Ebates, Rakuten is offering extra cash back this weekend: 12% cash back from more than 170 retailers and other merchants on Saturday, and triple cash back at select merchants Saturday through Monday.
Amazon’s Outlet section — the online retailer’s equivalent of an outlet store or perhaps more like an outlet mall — is having an end-of-summer sale right now.
For all of Amazon’s latest and biggest deals — including Lightning Deals — head on over to the Today’s Deals section.
The first thing to note about J.C. Penney’s holiday weekend sales is that they run all the way till Wednesday.
Then there are the discounts. For example, you will find savings of up to 60% — plus an extra 10% with an online code — on furniture and mattresses.
