When do Presidents Day sales start and how long do they last?
Lots of retailers start advertising Presidents Day sales starting right after Valentine's Day or even a few days before. Best Buy is known for launching deep discounts on appliances in early February.
While some retailers offer sales throughout the following week after Presidents Day, most stores have the best deals from Friday through Monday.
