When is Columbus Day 2020?

Columbus Day always falls on the second Monday in October. This year, the holiday is on Monday, October 14th. But some Columbus Day sales will start even earlier than that, so keep your eyes peeled for extra savings starting early in the month.

Where to shop Columbus Day sales


Ready to sleep easy? Columbus Day is a great time to find a dreamy deal on a new mattress. Do your research before you shop by checking out our complete guide to buying mattresses online. Most major bed-in-a-box brands like Purple, Casper and Leesa offer discounts and sometimes even free pillows this time of year.

If you’d rather shop in-store, compare prices from stores like Sears and Mattress Firm. Historically, these retailers have slashed prices on hundreds of name-brand mattresses, plus added free pillows to the deal for a limited time.
