Columbus Day sales might have started last week, but they are still going strong now that the federal holiday is here.

Of course, with Black Friday a month and a half away, not every mid-October sale offers decent discounts. But the following retailers’ sales are worth checking out.

As always, you can boost your savings from any sale by going through a cash-back portal such as Rakuten. Formerly known as Ebates, Rakuten is offering triple cash back at certain retailers and other merchants today.

Amazon

Amazon’s Outlet section — the online retailer’s equivalent of an outlet store or perhaps more like an outlet mall — is having an end-of-summer sale right now.

For all of Amazon’s latest and biggest deals — including Lightning Deals — head on over to the Today’s Deals section. Or, check out our hand-picked highlights in “11 Big Bargains to Grab at Amazon on Columbus Day.”

J.C. Penney

The first thing to note about J.C. Penney’s Columbus Day sales is that they run all the way till Wednesday.

For example, you will find savings of up to 60% — plus an extra 10% with an online code — on furniture and mattresses. You can save up to 50% on clothing and home goods — plus an extra 20% or 25% off with promo code STYLEUP, with the size of the discount depending on whether you pay with a J.C. Penney credit card.

Also running till Wednesday is the Shoe & Handbag Event, offering up to 50% off — plus an additional 20% or 25% off with promo code STYLEUP, depending on how you pay.

Macy’s

Macy’s Columbus Day Sale offers savings of 25% to 50% — plus an extra 10% to 20% off — on clothing and in certain departments. Use promo code SAVE for the extra discount.
