Memorial Day weekend is the time to buy
If you’ve been saving every hard-earned dollar of your stimulus check waiting for the best sales of the year, your wait is almost over—huge Memorial Day sales are right around the corner. “Three-day weekends are always great for sales, but Memorial Day weekend happens to be one of the best when it comes to deep discounts,” says smart-shopping expert Trae Bodge. “This long weekend offers a fantastic opportunity for consumers to save on bigger investment items. You can expect generous rebates and discounts as high as 60 percent off regular retail prices.” We’re talking fabulous Memorial Day furniture sales, mattress sales, appliance sales, and TV sales, to name a few. Wayfair and Walmart both have deep discounts on early Memorial Day sales this year.
To score the absolute best deals, you’ll need to do two important things: Keep an open mind when it comes to retailers, and stack promotions. “Don’t take sale prices at face value,” Bodge advises. “Make sure to check your favorite deal sites for exclusive promotions or cashback deals that you can stack with retailer sales.” One more thing to be on the lookout for this year? Travel-related deals, which she says will likely pop up as the American tourism economy rebounds with the uptick in available vaccines—don’t be surprised to see some last-minute Memorial Day getaways being booked.
But don’t limit yourself to booking a fabulous vacation or buying the best mattress on the market at an amazing discount. You’ll also score some of the best deals on products you’ll use every day, like normally pricey shoes, skin care, and even food. Here’s what you’ll want to put on your shopping list.
Home and kitchen appliances
Time to upgrade those outdated appliances. Don’t wait to buy that new washer and dryer set, range, or dishwasher, because the days leading up to Memorial Day will be better than any other sale we’ve seen in 2021.
Maytag: May is Maytag Month which means shoppers can get up to a $200 rebate via prepaid card by mail or save up to $200 via instant rebate with the purchase of select Maytag appliances on the brand’s website or through some of their retail partners. The promotion will run from April 29 through June 2 and make this already affordable brand even more budget-friendly.
BestBuy: The electronics superstore will be offering hundreds off its most popular appliances—including refrigerators, washing machines, and more—with discounts ranging from 10 to 40 percent off usual prices. It’ll also be stacking its Appliances Outlet landing page with hundreds of new deals at up to 40 percent off. BestBuy offers some of the biggest appliance sales each year, so it’s worth waiting with bated breath to see exactly which models will be marked down.
Lowe’s: Bookmark the Lowe’s Memorial Day Sales landing page, because that’s where you’ll find appliances at up to a third off their usual prices. Pro tip: This retailer offers an aggressive price-match policy that spans most other major retailers.
