As Sales Editor, I’ve been busy all week prepping to unleash the best Memorial Day sales on Reader’s Digest readers. I’m excited to report that this year’s deals are some of the best I’ve ever seen! I’m talking savings upwards of 50% on editor-loved mattresses, beauty, clothing and pet care items. Yep, you read that right—there are tons of Memorial Day sales that are already live ahead of the three-day weekend!
With savings available on top-selling items from and brands like Solo Stove and Cozy Earth ahead of the holiday, now is the time to fill your cart to cash in. Don’t wait until the weekend—these deals have limited stock, and we don’t expect some of these best sellers to stick around for Memorial Day.
When is Memorial Day 2023?
Memorial Day falls on Monday, May 29, 2023. While stores used to wait until Monday to slash their prices, many retailers like Amazon already have hundreds of deals up on their sites. Shop the savings below to score our editors’ favorite brands at a fraction of the list price ahead of the holiday.
Are Black Friday deals or Memorial Day sales better?
Sure, Black Friday boasts some of the biggest savings of the year—but Memorial Day deals are in a league of their own. Shop the sales and save on summer essentials, Amazon devices and big ticket items like mattresses and furniture. The next big shopping holiday long weekend is Labor Day in September, so now is the time to take advantage of low prices before fall.

The best finds from Memorial Day sales
Cozy Earth pajamas
The best way to usher in summer is with some seasonal cooling pajamas, and these editor-tested jammies are 30% with our exclusive code READERSDIGEST. Cozy Earth pajamas aren’t just butter-soft and moisture-wicking—they’re also bamboo viscose, so they keep hot sleepers cool all night along. Between the drape and amazingly light feel, we can’t get enough pairs!
Helix Midnight Luxe
A sound sleep is just a click away with the Helix Midnight Luxe. This editor-reviewed mattress banishes back pain thanks to layers that cool, conform and offer amazing support. Zero harmful chemicals and lumbar support coils with memory foam give this mattress our enthusiastic thumbs-up. Snag it on sale for $593 off with code MEMORIALDAY25.
When it comes to night sweats, some folks just don’t get relief with cooling materials alone. For those shoppers, we recommend investing in an expert-recommended bed cooling system like the BedJet 3. Available at a savings of $170, this under-the-bed unit blasts cool air that eliminates moisture and body heat throughout the night. During the winter, this appliance even offers heat for that delightfully toasty just-out-0f-the-dryer feeling any time. Read our review to learn more.
Plus size high-rise legging
Lane Bryant boasts some of the best leggings with pockets. During their Memorial Day sales shoppers can snag a pair of their bestselling high-rise LIVI leggings for more than 50% off—that puts the price below $25! Available through size 40, these inclusive leggings offer four-way stretch and an airy feel that’s fit for summer runs.
We never thought we’d find one of the best vacuum mops on sale for $60—but hey, that’s what Memorial Day sales are for! The Bissell CrossWave is one of the brand’s top selling vacuum mops, with the ability to clean both hard floors and area rugs. Built for pet lovers, this cleaning overachiever arrives with a tangle-free brush roll, pet hair strainer and multi-surface formula that eliminates stains and odors.
Linen Tower Cabinet
In adulthood I’ve amassed quite the collection of linens and towels. So many, in fact, that I can’t contain them in my closets. That’s where this linen tower cabinet comes in. This popular pick from Wayfair’s sale section, available at a generous $200 markdown, comes with three sizable shelves and two built-in drawers that hold dozens of bath sheets. The clean white finish blends well with most decor, and we love the inclusion of oil-rubbed bronze hardware.
LG French door refrigerator
Memorial Day savings are a smart time to shop for big ticket items like the best refrigerators. This French door fridge from LG is currently a generous 20% off—putting the total savings at $440. Over 25 cubic feet of space offers ample room for fruit trays and beverages, and smudge-resistant stainless steel looks classy is any kitchen. Invest in an appliance that lasts for decades while it’s at an affordable price.
Wicker patio set
Save a staggering 64% on this stunning wicker patio set and make all your outdoor decor dreams come true. Each four-piece set arrives with two foam-stuffed two-seat sofas. Pushed together they’re an L-shaped sofa, and displayed apart they create a four-seat set. A tempered glass coffee table is the perfect place to put drinks and snacks. Kick up your feet with the included ottoman for a laid-back summer evening.
Apple MacBook Air
Yup, you read that right—this Apple MacBook Air is available at a jaw-dropping savings of $200. In our guide to the best time to buy laptops, we mention that Apple laptops normally retail for over $1,000—that makes this MacBook a certifiable deal at only $799. Snag it before it sells out and enjoy the all-day battery life, stunning 13.3 inch Retina display and eight GB of super fast memory.
Solo Stove Bonfire 2.0
Not only can you secure the editor-loved Solo Stove Bonfire at a massive $150 discount, but with code FREEMESA you score a free Mesa fire pit worth $119 with every purchase. That leaves plenty of backyard budget to invest in mosquito repellents. Solo Stove pits create less smoke, plus their super portable size makes them ideal for camping trips and tailgating.
