This weekend is Presidents' Day. Maybe you've chosen to spend the day contemplating the long history of our nation's highest office, or maybe you're taking advantage of the long weekend to get out of town. If you find yourself with some free time, we've rounded up more than two dozen of our favorite deals from online retailers around the web and included the links to their sale pages. Happy birthday, Washington and Lincoln, and thank you for the day off work.
Updated February 18, 2019: We added 10 new deals from Google, Apple, Amazon, and others that we found over the weekend.
These snowshoes are 25 percent off
REI is having their yearly ski and snowboard sale this weekend, and it's worth checking out if you have a snowy presidential excursion on the docket. Snowshoeing is vastly underrated as a sport, and these ultralight and secure ones just might convert you.

MacBook Air for $1,050 ($149 off) The MacBook Air got a redesign in late 2018, and it's now our favorite MacBook. This entry level version has enough power to get work done. If you save a lot of files locally, consider beefing the storage up from 128GB to 256GB.
Apple Watch Series 3 (38mm) for $229 ($50 off) The newer Series 4 has a larger screen and innovative new heart-tracking features, but the Series 3 is still fantastic and a lot more affordable—especially right now. If you have a larger wrist, consider the 42mm size.

Eddie Bauer Men's Evertherm Down Hooded Jacket for $179 ($120 off) Our reviewer raved about Eddie Bauer's Evertherm jackets in our ski and snowboard guide.
686 GLCR Hydrastash Jacket for $280 ($70 off) A hydration pack built into the powder skirt of your jacket is one of the best ideas we've seen in a long time. Free yourself from the tyranny of the back hydration pack!

Amazon Device Deals
Amazon's devices tend to go on sale every few months. These are some of the best prices on a few devices since the Black Friday and holiday period.
Amazon Fire TV 4K for $40 ($10 off) If you're into Prime Video, the Fire TV is a pretty good way to stream videos on it and other services like Netflix. It's one of our favorite TV streaming devices, and one of the cheapest at this price.
Amazon Fire TV Cube for $80 ($40 off) We have mixed feelings about the Fire TV Cube. It doesn't deliver on the all-Alexa, all-voice promise it makes, but if you think of it more like a Fire TV with some hands-free extras, it's not bad.
Ring Video Doorbell 2 for $169 ($30 off) If you'd like a smart doorbell with a camera in it, here's one of the best.
Amazon Fire HD 10 Tablet for $120 ($30 off) The Fire HD 10 is still one of the Best Tablets. It's especially good as a portable video watcher at home.
Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet for $60 ($20 off) The HD 10 is a better tablet, but the 2018 Fire HD 8 is still OK for basic tasks, or for a kid. For $60, it's a bargain—just don't expect it to overly impress.
TV, Audio, And Home Deals
Vizio E-Series 65-inch TV for $668 ($129 off) This is one of our favorite budget-friendly TVs.

Shark Navigator NV351 for $98 ($50 off) Budget vacuum manufacturer Shark has been trying to eat Dyson's lunch for a few years now. At this price for a light, upright bagless vacuum, they might be winning.
Dyson V7 Motorhead for $240 ($160 off) On the other hand, if you want a light, cordless, wall-mounted Dyson stick vacuum, this isn't a bad price.
