Columbus, or Indigenous Peoples’ Day, is the last shopping holiday before Black Friday. With that title comes the great responsibility of deals galore. Will it live up to its position this year amidst the pandemic? Here is a look at this year’s Columbus Day deals and freebies…
Columbus Day Deals 2020
Although many people don’t recognize Columbus Day anymore, it still represents an opportunity for retailers to have a sale. This year’s Columbus Day deals are a little dialed down but good nonetheless.
One of the bigger items that typically go on sale around the holiday are vehicles. In 2020, that is no different. Some of the best deals include 0% financing on 2020 Toyota Camrys, Subaru Foresters, Mazda Miatas, Volkswagen Tiguans, Hyundai Sonatas, and Jeep Wranglers.
Many of the retailers offering deals this year are allowing them to be redeemed online and in-store. So, you’ll be able to order your discounted items for pickup, delivery, or browse in-store (with precaution, of course). Here are some of the best Columbus Day retail deals this year.
