Don't miss out on big savings during Memorial Day

Memorial Day is Monday, May 27 – the unofficial start of the summer. You’re going to find some of the best sales since the start of the year. This Memorial Day weekend actually started in March, when Amazon kicked off its Memorial Day sale by taking 60% off shoes and accessories.

Memorial Day celebrates the brave men and women who died serving our country. Does bargain shopping diminish their gift to us? Absolutely not. In fact, it’s a fine tribute. Enjoying the freedoms provided for us by those who fell is a reminder of our blessings.

“We’re encouraged to see that such a high percentage of consumers plan to take advantage of Memorial Day weekend sales as May is a great time to get deep discounts on apparel, home goods and gym memberships,” says Mike Spankie, senior merchandising manager of Deals2Buy.com.

Keep the memories of the fallen in your heart, teach your children why Memorial Day matters, and honor our heroes by living your American Dream. If your American Dream means getting the most out of your hard-earned dollars, this is the article for you.

Clothing Sales


“Memorial Day is a great time to stock up on spring apparel, since we typically see deep discounts that qualify for an additional price cuts via a stacking coupon; combined, this can yield some big savings,” says Dealnews.com.

Additional retailers that offered some of the best clothing sales last year included ShopEcko, Old Navy, Betsey Johnson, and Backcountry.” Look for savings of up to 50% off select sunglasses and get free second-day shipping at SunglassHut.com.

Electronics sales

Laptops and Electronics

Laptop deals are still going strong, and we can expect to see Memorial Day sales from Fry's Electronics, Dell Home, and MacMall – as we did last year.” However, Dealnews.com goes on to recommend holding off until later in the summer when you can take advantage of back-to-school laptop sales and save a few extra bucks, or snag a laptop bundle.

On the other hand, the folks at Deals2Buy.com feel differently. According to a recent survey, consumers are in the market for good deals on technology. The survey found that 50% of consumers would be willing to pay less for an older laptop once a new one is released.“I would caution that May is not typically when we see the deepest discounts on new electronics, but if you’re willing to buy an older model, you’ll always get a cost benefit,” says Spankie. You can save up to 66% off computers, TV’s, Blu-Ray players, cameras, appliances and much more at BestBuy. Offers are changing daily between now and June 1, so check back often.
