- Even More Great Memorial Day Deals
With warm weather in our sights, backyard items will be a big focus. Overstock.com currently has a 70% off sale, with discounts on everything from outdoor rugs to patio seating. Wayfair is another great retailer to find good deals on outdoor umbrellas, lounge chairs, and more during Memorial Day sales.
Memorial Day is also opening day for most pools and beaches, so look out for deals on beach bags and towels, as well as swimwear and coolers. We’ll likely see those prices drop even further in August, though. So unless you need something for this pool season, it might be better to wait for late-summer or fall sales. But for things you need this season, Memorial Day sales are a good time to scoop them up!
Big-ticket household items like mattresses, refrigerators, and vacuums will also have noticeable price dives. Home Depot is a big name in Memorial Day appliance sales. Normally you can expect up to 40% off major home appliances like refrigerators, ranges, and washers and dryers.
Be sure to check out the Lowe’s and Best Buy Memorial Day sale as well if you’re in the market for new appliances.
Last year in the Kohl’s Memorial Day sale, we saw deals for 2 Hamilton Beach appliances for $30 or 2 Toastmaster appliances for $16. Best Buy had several multi-cooker deals and we often see some small kitchen appliance deals in the Macy’s Memorial Day sale as well. If you’re in the market for an air fryer, check out the Home Depot Memorial Day sale as we’ve seen some surprisingly good prices from them in the past!
Though we sometimes see better deals on small kitchen appliances during Black Friday, many of those require a mail-in rebate. So if you’re looking for more convenience with a slightly higher price tag, now may be a great time for you to shop.
If you’re open to looking at a number of different brands, this will be a great time of year to upgrade your mattress. Big box stores love using this three-day weekend as an excuse to put this pricey item on sale.
We do see great mattress deals during President’s Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day sales. The mattress deals during each of these sales are usually pretty similar, so if you’re in the market for a mattress today, the Memorial Day mattress sale is a perfect time to shop.
We’ve seen deals on comforters and sales on sheets in the Macy’s Memorial Day sale and expect the same this year. Expect some 3-piece comforter set deals at Macy’s around the $30 price point and maybe some larger sets under $50.
This is also a time stores will put things on sale you wouldn’t necessarily expect, like skincare. Look for beauty sales at retailers like ULTA and Sephora, where everything from tanning kits to eyeshadow pallets will get a price drop. Likewise, you wouldn’t normally think to look for cold-weather gear in summer, or laptops before the back-to-school sales, but we’ve seen retailers putting up good Memorial Day sales on both.
Amazing deals aren’t limited to these categories, of course, so be sure to keep an eye on our ever-growing collection of the best Memorial Day deals, brought to you by our expert deal editors.
