Watch for an entire weekend of deals and bargains at MLK Day sales celebrated this year on Monday, January 17, 2022.
In fact, look for an entire MLK weekend of great shopping online, and at your favorite department stores, offering the first great winter clearance sales of the year.
How to shop MLK Day weekend sales
Start early by scouring sales circulars from the bigger department stores, such as Macy's, Target, and Old Navy. Also be on the lookout for Amazon deals and major sales at your favorite online store.
Spring is on the way, so stores are going to be anxious to clear their shelves of coats, scarves, gloves, boots, and other cold weather apparel in a major winter clearance.
January is also a great time to shop for towels and bed linens at annual January white sales that are a big part of MLK weekend shopping.
In the market for a new couch to spruce up the house? Now is the time to pounce. Dealers are ready to offer up to 50% discounts on household furniture to clear their inventory for new furniture models coming in February.
Have sports fans in the house? With the Super Bowl right around the corner, be on the lookout for great deals on flat screen TV's at Best Buy and other electronics retailers during MLK weekend sales.
Of course, smart shoppers should still be on the lookout after the holidays for deep discounts on toys, gift wrap, greeting cards, holiday candy and decor at after Christmas sales. That includes boxed sets of perfumes, colognes and grooming sets that are perfect for gift giving throughout the year.
Speaking of grooming, also keep an eye out for beauty products that go on sale during MLK weekend with discounts of up to 50% from Sephora and other brand names in skin care.
What NOT to shop for on MLK Day weekend
Although jewelry always goes on sale after the holidays, patience will pay off if you wait for Presidents Day sales when prices really take a dive on earrings, rings and necklaces.
The same goes for exercise and gym equipment, small household appliances, and mattresses. While there are deals to be had in January on these items, wait until next month when retailers practically go begging to clear their shelves to stock new inventory coming this spring.
