With Valentine’s Day and Presidents’ Day right around the corner, February’s best sales are already on for things like mattresses, TVs, smartphones and refrigerators. Consumer Reports reveals the deals you’ll love all month long.

“February kicks off with a lot of sales TVs in preparation for the Super Bowl so you can expect a lot of retailers offering deals this month,” says Consumer Reports’ Samantha Gordon.

Go big for the biggest game of the year with the 98 inch 4K TV from TCL. It’s as low as $1,999.99 at Best Buy, that’s $3,000 in savings!

And the electronics deals don’t stop there, Gordon adds, “Samsung just unveiled its new smartphone, the Galaxy S24 last month. This means older models will start to go on sale as well as trade-in offers.”

The Samsung Galaxy S23 is now $699.99 at Samsung. CR says this smartphone has some of the best cameras on the market for both still photos and video.

Keep an eye out for lots of money-saving Presidents’ Day sales, especially on mattresses and larger appliances. The LG French Door Smart Refrigerator is now $1,498 at The Home Depot. This 30-inch wide fridge aced CR’s tests for thermostat control and temperature uniformity.

“February is a great month to buy a mattress. We always say never pay full price for one, and this month there will be plenty of sales during the Presidents’ Day holiday weekend,” says Gordon.

The Casper Wave Hybrid Mattress (Queen) is as low as $2,166.50 at Best Buy and Casper. This high-end hybrid mattress-in-a-box offers fine support and excellent durability. Casper receives high marks for comfort and satisfaction in CR’s owner surveys.
