Patio Furniture and Outdoor Supplies

With warm weather in our sights, backyard items will be a big focus. 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.

Power Tools

Right now is an excellent time to look for a Memorial Day sale on power tools. With Father’s Day approaching later in June, many retailers get a jump start by offering Memorial day power tool sales.

We always check the Home Depot Memorial Day sale and the Lowe’s Memorial Day sale for power tool deals. In the past, we’ve seen deals on DeWalt power tool sets, Ryobi sets, and sets from Rigid.

Beach Gear and Swimwear

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!

Home Appliances

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.

Small Kitchen Appliances

Along with the major home appliances, we also see sales on small kitchen appliances. The big names to watch in Memorial Day small appliance sales are Kohl’s and Best Buy.

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.

White Sales

If you end up upgrading your mattress during the 2021 Memorial Day sales, the great news is that you can also update your bedding at a discount, too!

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.

The Unexpected

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.
