Presidents’ Day Sales: Where to Shop for White House-Worthy Deals

Posted on 02/17/2012

We honor the first President of the United States, George Washington, in many ways: some of us get the day off from school, some don’t have to work and others score great deals on bedding, home goods and even cars. Presidents’ Day falls on Monday, February 20 this year. Celebrate our country’s leaders by scoring some White House-worthy deals.

Auto Dealership Deals
Car dealerships seem to take full advantage of the shortest month of the year by getting rid of as many cars as possible. Dealerships often use Presidents’ Day sales to make room for new models by lowering prices on last year’s versions. For instance, Honda is promoting a Presidents’ Day sale that includes 0.9% APR for 24-60 months for well-qualified buyers. Since football is over and Presidents’ Day parties are rare, car salesmen hope that people will use the day off to walk showroom floors.
