Memorial Day: 6 deals you can bet on this weekend!

In this article

Memorial Day is just around the corner and so is the biggest three-day sales weekend of the year. So, get ready to be bombarded with blowout sale announcements on TV, on the radio and in your email inbox.

Before you go exploring your wallets, here are some shopping hacks for you to remember:

  • Research and hunt down hot deals.
  • Explore the back of the store, that’s where the sale happens.
  • Look for freebies that accompany product categories.

While Memorial Day sales virtually display all product categories, we can all agree that some deals are sweeter than others. To help you snatch the best offers and bypass the worst, we’ve included a complete list of what to buy and what not to buy on Memorial Day weekend 2021:

Mattress Deals

Memorial Day sales on mattresses are so dreamy. Pinch yourself, because this Memorial Day weekend you’ll see mattress retailers both online and brick-and-mortar advertising “big blowout” deals of 50%, as well as promo codes for online shopping. If you are looking for King or Queen specials and freebies, there are common promos at mattress stores that include free mattress toppers, bed frames and pillows with purchase.


Think appliances and Memorial Day sales are what come to mind— they rarely disappoint—especially refrigerators.  You can expect up to 40% off price tags on fridges, microwaves, washers and dryers. Retailers offer massive discounts on orders of three or more appliances. The price you pay is all a part of the savings equation. Buy three and get a good deal! Look for free delivery offers as well.

Furniture and Home Decor

If you’re looking to give your home a makeover this season, then good deals are coming your way through Memorial Day sales. 

Overstock is offering 20% off area rugs, home decor, and bedding and bath. If you’re looking for patio deals, Target is your place to be for outdoor furniture sales.

National chains like Ashley HomeStore and local chains get in on the Memorial Day action too, they offer good deals on new sectional dining sets and bedroom furniture,

Sales on Tools

With Father’s Day around the corner, it’s a smart time to stock up on tools. Home improvement retailers helm some of the best Memorial Day sales.

Spring Fashion Sales

Spring shoes, dresses, light jackets and whatever goes with your spring collection can be covered this weekend. Yes, we know summer is approaching, but stores are eager to push out spring merchandise so they can make way for the new season’s styles. Most clothing stores offer free gifts with purchases. Major players on Memorial Day weekend are department stores like Macy’s, JCPenney and Dillard’s. 

Camping Equipment and Outdoor Sales

Road trips and outdoor adventures are always a Memorial Day tradition. We’re sure that plenty of families plan these vacations like it’s their summertime staple. Moreover, road trips and camping might just be a more realistic option, considering the pandemic.

That being said, keep your eyes open for promo codes on cycling, camping gear, and golf clubs. Don’t pump the brakes on a new bike just yet, because retailers traditionally offer big discounts on bikes, camping equipment and hiking gear during Memorial Day. This one being a long weekend is a bonus in itself. 

What You Shouldn’t Buy

Memorial Day weekend is not great for electronics like laptops and tablets. You will barely witness a modest markdown on their price tags. It’s best to wait until the back-to-school season in July for these items to go on sale.

It’s not really a good time to get a new air conditioner, a grill, and plants, they are all at season-high prices. While you’re going gaga over sales and shopping, ensure to commemorate the men and women who served our country in the past. Apart from that, have a great time with the kids and the family!”
