What do a Samsung TV, a Sam Edelman Coat, a Saatva mattress and a bottle of Chanel No. 5 have in common? They’re all some of the best products you can buy in February. That’s right folks, according to a recent study from RetailMeNot, the shortest month of the year is peak sale season for top shopping categories like mattresses, fragrances, winter coats, electronics and tax software. (Yes, that last one may be a tad boring, but it is necessary.) Better yet, with Valentine’s Day right around the corner and President’s Day on the horizon, a mecca of beloved brands are hosting sales throughout the entire month of February. Not sure what to shop for first? Here are five items that will have the biggest discounts this month.

Tax Prep Software

Yes, we know, you’re probably not jumping for joy over the idea of discounted tax software. But Tax Day is looming in the not-so-distant future (FYI, it’s April 18, 2022), so why not get a head start on yours and save on what you need to get all that paperwork done smoothly? According to RetailMeNot, taxpayers will see an average of 35 percent off tax prep services this month. But beware, as Tax Day approaches, prices will increase, so we don’t recommend putting them off for too long. And hey, the sooner you submit your taxes, the sooner you’ll get your return, so you can use that $$$ to go buy yourself something a tad more exciting. (Think of it as a reward for being responsible and doing your taxes on time.)

Starting spring cleaning early? Looking for a better night’s sleep? Or hoping to revamp your space with an entirely new design aesthetic (Newstalgia, anyone?)? Good news: You can do all three and save some money by shopping for home goods (think: bedding, mattresses and small appliances) before this month comes to a close. Pro tip: President’s Day weekend is chock full of incredible mattress deals (including PureWow home editor faves like Casper, Tuft & Needle and Saatva), so wait until the holiday is close to grab a new pillow-top or memory foam sleeper.
