Find out where to save big this Memorial Day: our favorite stores for deals and discounts

Memorial Day is celebrated on the last Monday in May and holds a very special meaning for Americans. Originally, only those who died in the Civil War were honored. But after World War I this changed and, since then, all those who have died serving the country in combat are remembered on that day. It wasn't until 1971 when the U.S. Congress officially declared Memorial Day a national holiday. In addition, in December 2000, Congress passed the law known as “The National Moment of Remembrance Act”, with the goal of ensuring that those who sacrificed their lives for the country would never be forgotten. Beyond the commemoration, most U.S. online retailers are taking advantage of this date to offer deep discounts. You can find deals and sales on small and large appliances, supermarkets, clothing stores as well as hardware and DIY chains. Our favorite stores for deals and discounts? Take note: THE HOME DEPOT, LOWE’S, HARBOR FREIGHT and Macy’s. There are discounts up to 40% off on home goods like lawn furniture and outdoor grills during this period. The reason behind these generous deals is that retailers who typically have the best discounts want to clear out their inventory from last season to make space for the next season's new products. This pattern is especially evident in older-generation electronics, spring apparel and footwear, or home décor items.

How and when to take advantage of deals?


Memorial Day deals are already underway, but experts recommend waiting until the week leading up to the holiday and the three-day weekend to find the best prices. Most sales culminate on Monday, May 27, although some retailers extend their deals for more days. However, they are often less attractive. For example, a store might offer 45% off sitewide during Memorial Day weekend, but only 25% off selected items the following week. Therefore, to ensure the best prices and a wider variety of products, it is advisable to shop before the end of the date. Memorial Day offers an excellent opportunity to save on a variety of products, especially on expensive and older seasonal items. However, it is important to be selective and avoid buying products that will be better discounted later in the year.

What not to buy?


The priority: clothing and footwear. These items tend to be most heavily discounted in August and September, when the new season is approaching. Also, it isn’t the best time to purchase school supplies, such as backpacks and lunch boxes. These products tend to drop in price toward the end of summer. It might be best to wait a little while to buy a computer, too. June could bring prices down further due to start-of-school discounts.
