Columbus Day sales, unlike Labor Day sales or even Fourth of July sales, aren’t really a thing. If you consider it for a second—and remind yourself that Christopher Columbus was a monster who didn’t discover anything—you realize Columbus Day shouldn’t really even be a holiday. Now that you’ve come to this realization, let’s move on. Regardless of whether you’ve got a long weekend ahead, if you’d rather not be twiddling your thumbs for a few days, there are handfuls of price drops on a range of gear, especially home tech and furniture upgrades. Here’s some of the best sales we could find, all available to shop this weekend.
Apple: Apple isn’t running its own fall sale, but if you’re a student or educator you can get free AirPods with the purchase of a new Mac or iPad through the company’s Back to School offer. Or, you can cop some discounted Apple products like AirPods and Macbooks over at Amazon.
