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.

“Last year, for example, we saw promotions that slashed an additional 20% to 40% off sale items at stores like MLB.com, Original Penguin, Anne Klein, Perry Ellis, Macy's, and Speedo, oftentimes with items already marked 30% to 70% off. 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.

    • See What Little Ricky From "I Love Lucy" Looks Like Today

But real-life Lucy and Desi didn't want their baby on screen for obvious reasons, so they cast a wide net in search of a set of similar-looking twins. (Having two children alternate for one role helps shows adhere to child-labor laws that limit camera time for the industry's youngest actors.) Desi Arnaz chose15-month-old Joe and Mike Mayer based on a photo he'd seen of them at a Twins Club picnic, where their mother was president, the Idaho-Press Tribune reports.

      In her late 20s, Lisa Brown had it all—the 5'10" former model married her college sweetheart, had attended grad school, and loved to cook gourmet meals and take spins in a classic Mustang convertible. But at 28 she began to mysteriously lose weight and vomit after eating. By the time she stepped on a scale to check her weight, she was 112 pounds, down from 140 pounds, reported Good Housekeeping in 2015. Her eventual diagnoses a few years later? Superior mesenteric artery syndrome, a condition in which her small intestine was being pinched and not allowing food to pass through, and gastroparesis, which kept her stomach from emptying correctly, reports People.

    • The NES Classic is back in stock at a bunch of Target stores right now

      The NES Classic has been permanently out of stock ever since it first launched last November. Nintendo has been hustling to increase production to meet the unprecedented demand, and it looks like it might be working. Target stores across the country currently have the NES Classic in stock and ready for you to buy right now. According to NowInStock's Target stock checker, Targets all around the country currently have between 1 and 10 units on shelves. A quick check of areas around New York, New Jersey and LA show some stores with stock, so it's definitely worth putting your ZIP code in and checking stock. Target stores are reportedly getting daily stock, so if you don't find anything today, it could be worth camping out your nearest big Target early tomorrow morning. The amount of stock different stores receives depends on size and location, with big suburban stores near big cities normally being the best bet. There's also a rumor going around that ToysRUs stores are getting a huge stock dump on January 26th, which could be worth checking out. Right now, Walmart and Target are the only two physical stores getting any inventory, but it seems that Nintendo is slowly starting to catch up with demand. As more units have been coming available, prices on second-hand resellers on Amazon have been falling. While the NES Classic ran about $250 before Christmas, prices are now down around $150. That's still a huge increase over the $60 RRP, but it shows that the NES Classic supply is very slowly catching up on demand. To keep track on stock, you're still best off using BrickSeek  and NowInStock , which offer features to help you track and receive notifications for online stock. For your local stores, the best bet is still to try and call and speak to an employee in the releveant department, who may be willing to help you work out when stock will next arrive.
