There aren't lots of sales promotions this month, according to the National Retail Federation. But Consumer Reports' product-research experts, who track prices all year long, have have found a few items that are typically on deep discount in February. Get more details: http://bit.ly/1QCL04U
  1. Indoor Furniture
    Furniture pricetags are slashed this month because stores need to make way for new lines that will arrive after the spring High Point Market (April 16 to 20 this year).
  2. Mattresses
    Look for the deepest discounts around Presidents' Day, when you should expect to find prices slashed at least 50 to 60 percent.
  3. Winter Clothing
    We've found winter apparel is usually on deep discount in February as retailers make way for spring lines. But this year's unusually warm fall means retailers are swamped with unsold coats, scarves, and sweaters.
  4. Humidifiers
    Put substance over style. Models resembling a radio can liven up your decor but their output might be too low for the area you need to humidify.
