Presidents Day is the first big sale event of the year. The deals start early, right on the heels of Valentine’s Day, and some go through the end of the month. As always, the Buy Side staff is hard at work searching through all the deal ads we can find and highlighting what’s actually worth spending your money on. In addition to the deals listed below, we have a selection of staff picks and Wayfair deals you should check out, too. We’ll be updating this piece through Presidents Day and beyond, so be sure to visit often to find the best sales.

If you’ve been considering an Apple Watch Ultra, now is a great time to score one while Amazon has it marked down by $50. At the time of publication, this deal extends to all three brand styles in every color and size. Compared to the Apple Watch Series 8, the Ultra has a larger, brighter display, a more rugged design, a longer lasting battery and an extra button for triggering quick actions like starting a workout, even if you’re wearing gloves.

The AirPods Pro have great sound and excellent noise cancellation paired with lots of Apple-friendly features.
Apple’s AirPods Pro are omnipresent, and for good reason. They offer great sound quality, impressive noise cancellation and long-lasting battery life, with a tiny case to hold and recharge them. They’re worth it at full price, and an even better deal with this $50 discount.

The Apple Pencil is an essential accessory if you have an iPad, especially at this all-time low price. It’s the ideal tool for taking notes and drawing thanks to its accuracy, palm rejection and pressure and tilt support—it feels as close to a pen and paper as you’re going to get with plastic and glass. We also love that it magnetically attaches to the side of the iPad to charge, making it harder to lose and ensuring the battery never runs dry.

$120 at Anker
Anker’s wireless charging station is a must-have for anyone who uses an iPhone and AirPods because it combines a number of useful features into one device. This includes a magnetic charging mount for your phone that keeps the screen at a visible angle and doubles as a portable power bank you can take with you on the go. There’s also a charging pad for the AirPods’ case, and a cable and wall plug are included in the box, making it a full solution.

It’s well-established that Lego kits aren’t just for kids, and this Star Wars Ultimate Millennium Falcon is a set for patient builders 16 and up. With more than 7,500 pieces, the completed project is nearly three feet long and two feet wide. It includes character minifigures from both the original trilogy as well as the 2010s-era sequels—yes, that means two Han Solos. This is the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this set.
The deal: Up to $100 off audio gear
$149 at Amazon
Audio-Technica is known for its quality audio gear, including microphones and headphones. Our favorite among its sales is the AT-LP60 turntable (so much so that it made our list of staff picks for Presidents Day deals). The record player regularly goes for $150; the $20 savings is enough to buy an album to go along with it.
The deal: 10% off your first subscription order and a free tasting flight with code PRESIDENT from Feb. 17 through Feb. 20
$11 at Bean Box
$22 Save $11
Bean Box is one of our favorite coffee subscription services, offering fresh beans from roasters across the country, delivered to your doorstep. You can customize everything from whether you want whole bean or ground coffee to the roast level to how much coffee you receive, and how often. The packages start at $20 per delivery, but with this Presidents Day sale you’ll save 10% on your first order and receive a winter tasting flight, which Bean Box values at $24.
The deal: $200 off a great-for-most laptop
$750 at Amazon
$1000 Save $250
Don’t let the 2020 release date fool you; Apple’s M1-based MacBook Air is still a totally modern computer that will offer fast performance for most people’s daily tasks. You probably don’t need anything more powerful unless you plan on creative production, such as heavy photo and video editing. And at $800, it’s a steal, especially considering Apple still sells it for $1,000. If you’re interested in the newer model with its updated design and M2 chip, B&H Photo has it for $100 off.
The deal: 10% off the Work From Home collection with code PRESIDENTSDAY
$296 at Branch
$329 Save $33
If you’re still working from home and you haven’t upgraded your office chair yet, now is the time—and it doesn’t need to be a particularly expensive investment. Branch’s Ergonomic Chair, which comes recommended in our shopping guide for ergonomic chairs, is available for 10% off when you use the code PRESIDENTSDAY. The chair comes in six seat colors with either a black or white frame, allowing you to stand out in the normally monotone category.
The deal: 15% off sitewide through Feb. 23
$144 at Brooklinen
$169 Save $25
You can get a deal on Brooklinen’s bedding products pretty much any day of the week—never pay full price! But a 15% off sale is a pretty good deal, and if you’re shopping for any of the company’s products, now is a good time to buy. One piece to consider is the Weighted Throw Blanket, which we ranked as the best throw-style weighted blanket in our guide. We’re also big fans of the Luxe Hardcore Sheet Bundle.
The deal: Up to 40% off
$171 at The Company Store
$229 Save $58
The Legends Hotel Supima Cotton Percale Sheet Set is on sale for 40% off during the Container Store’s sale. In our Buy Side best sheets ranking, we named these the best Pima cotton sheets thanks to their incredibly soft feel and breathable texture. Our testing showed that this 400-thread-count percale fabric gets noticeably softer after several washes, resulting in a surprisingly smooth feel for percale. To score these sheets at an even lower price, see four colors that are on clearance, marked down a full 50%.

It’s perfect for anyone with a budding wine collection, or who simply prefers to enjoy their favorite bottle over a few sittings.

Our reviewer found the organic Turkish cotton to be soft, absorbent and plush; available in five restful colors.

As we note in our guide to buying an ergonomic chair, it’s “exceptionally adjustable.” It’s the same price with free shipping at Herman Miller and DWR (see above) so you can choose your preferred retailer. Other Buy Side-recommended chairs, including the Setu and the Eames, are also part of the Herman Miller sale.

If you’re looking for a new bag that’s big enough for your daily carry but not so large as to be annoying, check out this deal on the Kate Spade Large Tote. It’s large enough to hold a 13-inch laptop plus plenty more, and comes with a detachable wristlet. The Manta Blue version is marked down to $122 with the promo code BLOOM, and the Lavender Cream, while a little bit more expensive, is still $110 off the list price.

REI has a range of active wear and gear and during Presidents Day some items are up to half off. This jacket from Helly Hansen—the Norway-founded brand known for pro-grade apparel and gear—is waterproof yet breathable and with an adjustable hood with a drawcord. Verglas Micro Shell packs neatly into its chest pocket for easy travel. Helly Hansen clothes tend to be fitted, in our experience, so if in doubt, order a size up.
