Freebies, Discounts and Deals for Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Martin Luther King Day falls on the third Monday of every January, which is January 18, 2021 this year. A tribute to America’s beloved civil rights icon, Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a time to reflect on his commitment to justice, peace and equality that has a profound impact on the country to this day.
Additionally, MLK Day is also a three-day weekend for many Americans. Though most people are doing their shopping online due to COVID-19, retailers and websites are slashing prices to draw customers after the holidays. Honoring Dr. King’s life and legacy doesn’t require you to pass on a great deal if one pops up.
