With big shopping events like Prime Day and Black Friday in the rearview, the Amazon Presidents’ Day sale is your next chance to save money on any products you’ve been eyeing. The holiday weekend (Saturday, February 17 to Monday, February 19) is still a couple weeks away, but there are already discounts on big-ticket items like mattresses, kitchen appliances, and fitness equipment. To help you parse through all the options, we’ve curated a list of the very best products. (By the way, deals are still rolling out, so you can keep checking this post for updated recommendations.) And if you’re not an Amazon Prime member already, it’s worth signing up for a free 30-day trial before you shop—you’ll get exclusive deals and free shipping.
The best Amazon Presidents’ Day deals right now
We’ve scoped out what’s on sale, and these five products are the absolute crème de la crème. You can upgrade your old mattress to this cooling, breathable one with pressure-relieving foam; get an air fryer to make crispy chicken tenders and falafel at home; or grab this SELF Fave neck massager. (And if these aren’t quite what you’re looking for, we’ve got even more great options below.)
- Tuft & Needle Original Queen Mattress—originally $995; now $796
- Instant Vortex Plus 6QT Air Fryer—originally $170; now $100
- Nekteck Shiatsu Neck and Back Massager—originally $70; now $50
- Redliro Under Desk Treadmill—originally $470; now $270
- Apple iPad (9th Generation)—originally $329; now $249
You can find wireless headphones from JBL, Beats, and Apple on sale for Presidents’ Day, along with other gadgets, like a Samsung Galaxy Watch 5. One reviewer said this fitness tracker was lighter and less bulky than the older models, which was surprising given the better battery life (three days on one charge).
Mattresses and bedding deals
You can’t always control all the factors that lead to a good night’s sleep (we see you, bed-hogging pets!), but you can get a mattress you love. This Tuft & Needle Original Queen Mattress gets great reviews for hitting that just-right balance of firm support and soft cushioning. Amazon also has discounts on essentials like pillows and sheets (perfect for a mini bedroom refresh).
We think the Instant Pot Vortex Plus, an air fryer (with a window!) that can cook up to six quarts of food at once, would make a great gift or addition to your own kitchen. And you might actually hop on the morning smoothie train if you buy the Ninja Professional Blender that’s available for 20% off.
If you’re building out your home gym, don’t sleep on these discounted treadmills, exercise bikes, rowing machines, yoga mats, and resistance bands. The foldable rower from Sunny Health & Fitness won a SELF Home Fitness Award in 2022 for its no-frills, lightweight design. It has eight levels of magnetic resistance, a streamlined LCD display, a comfy ergonomic seat, and a folding mechanism that allows for easy storage.
The Nekteck Shiatsu Neck and Back Massager is a must-add-to-cart item in our opinion—you need the 8 heated massage nodes in your life. Amazon also has great sales on self-care essentials right now, like a water flosser, an air purifier, and the Tushy Basic 2.0. If you haven’t had the pleasure of using a bidet, just trust us on this one: You’re never going to want to use TP again.
Whether you’re diving into the world of at-home laser hair removal or just looking for a nice-smelling body wash, there’s probably something you could use in your beauty routine on sale right now. Braun’s Silk Expert Pro5 won a SELF Healthy Beauty Award because it’s the closest thing we’ve found to getting laser treatments at a salon (and it’s a lot cheaper in the long run).
Amazon has tons of fitness gear on sale for different types of workouts. You can grab a great pair of leggings from Adidas, which reviewers say have “phenomenal stretch,” or pick up a supportive top from Under Armour that one buyer described as “by far one of the best high-impact sports bras” they’ve ever purchased. You can also shop running sneakers from trusted brands like ASICS and Saucony.
