When is Memorial Day this year?

The American federal holiday is on Monday, May 27, 2019. Memorial Day falls on the last Monday in May each year.

What to expect from Memorial Day sales

Expect some of the best finds during this three-day weekend to be on big-ticket items like:

Mattress sales

Memorial Day is traditionally a great time of year to buy mattresses, both online and in stores. But shopping online with popular brands like Purple, Casper Mattresses and Nectar Sleep could land you even bigger savings and maybe even a free pillow or two.

Check out our mattress review page to compare more online brands and see which deals and features might be right for you.

Appliance sales

Be on the lookout for deep discounts on indoor appliances this time of year, like up to 40% off refrigerators, dishwashers and more from Home Depot, or up to 40% off select appliances and free installation for select dishwashers from Lowe's.

But if you’re in the market for a grill or other outdoor appliances, you might find better deals towards the end of summer.

Home goods sales

Scoop up savings on home goods, furniture and decor items like area rugs, bedding, towels and wall art. Wayfair is offering up to 70% off these items, while Home Depot has already started advertising up to 40% off outdoor patio sets.

Tool sales

Select tools will be marked down for Memorial Day, though not every brand. Home Depot has announced its Ryobi Days BOGO sales for this year, while Lowe's is offering up to 25% off select Hitachi tools and accessories for its Hitachi Days sales event.

Travel sales

Lots of travel booking sites historically offer sweet deals on travel this time of year. CheapOair, for example, is advertising discounted flights to popular destinations over Memorial Day weekend. And Orbitz has some tempting last-minute vacation packages available.Back to top

Where to shop Memorial Day sales 2020

Lowe's and Home Depot are two of the best places to seek out sweet deals this time of year

With Memorial Day on a Monday, lots of retailers take advantage of the extra day off by holding sales that last throughout the weekend and often extend into the following week.

Big Memorial Day sale items tend to be furniture, mattresses, outdoor appliances and home improvement items.

What to buy (and what not to buy)

You’ll find Memorial Day sales all over the place. But not all deals are as good as they might sound.

We’ve gathered a smattering of the best and not-so-best items to scout out this time of year.

What to buy

  • Mattresses. Memorial Day is among the best times of year to buy a new bed. Many online providers offer deep discounts and freebies.
  • Appliances. Look for bargains on indoor appliances, like refrigerators, washers and dryers, dishwashers and more.
  • Home decor. Need new area rugs, wall art or bedding? Now is a great time to save!
  • Tools. Stock up on everything you need for your summer projects, or grab a Father’s Day gift while top items are on sale.
  • Spring clothes. In the past, we’ve seen deep discounts on spring fashion from a wide range of retailers.
  • Travel. You might score a sweet deal on a last-minute Memorial Day weekend getaway.

What not to buy

  • Summer clothes. While swimsuits and tanks are on the shelves, you’re likely to find better deals as summer draws nearer.
  • TVs and electronics. You’ll see a few deals pop up. But hold off until Black Friday, if you can help it, for stronger electronics savings.
  • Jewelry. Late summer is typically the slowest shopping time for jewelers, so you may find the best deals by holding off until then.

Places to go during Memorial Day

Looking to get away for Memorial Day weekend? Try these trending destinations:

  • Washington, DC. What better time to visit the nation’s capital than over Memorial Day weekend?
  • Austin, Texas. Love a good music scene? This hot destination is known for its authentic country music and delicious food.
  • Charleston, South Carolina. Take a trip back in time to see pre–Civil War architecture and Fort Sumter National Monument along the way.
  • Indianapolis, Indiana. There’s lots to see in this capitol city, including the Soldiers and Sailors Monument, the Indiana World War Memorial and Museum and the Congressional Medal of Honor Memorial.
  • Savannah, Georgia. This charming city is the oldest in Georgia and boasts delicious Southern comfort food and lovely cobblestone streets. While there, take a tour of American author Flannery O’Connor’s childhood home.
  • Arlington, Virginia. Commemorate the true meaning of this holiday with a visit to Arlington National Cemetery to see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
  • Provincetown, Massachusetts. Embrace your inner pilgrim with a stop at the site of the Mayflower’s landfall in 1620.
  • Ocean City, Maryland. This popular destination is the ideal beach getaway to kick off warmer weather, whether for a week or long weekend.

What is the meaning of Memorial Day?

Many Americans confuse the meaning of Memorial Day with that of Veterans Day. Although they’re similar, each holiday has a distinct meaning.

During Memorial Day, Americans remember the men and women who have died serving our country. Many families celebrate by visiting cemeteries and national memorials or attending parades intended to honor fallen heroes.

Veterans Day honors the men and women who’ve served in the US military and largely focuses on those who are still living.

Sending flowers on Memorial Day

Sending flowers to loved ones who are grieving their fallen friends or family is a kind gesture this time of year. Poppies are one of the most popular flowers to honor lost loved ones on Memorial Day.

You can also order flowers online to be placed on the graves of the fallen.
