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!
  • 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.

Memorial Day flowers

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.

Places to go during Memorial Day

Memorial Day travel deals may look a little different this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. If you live in a state where stay-at-home restrictions have eased, you could consider booking a hotel or vacation rental. Be sure to check state and regional guidelines before planning a trip, and keep in mind that the CDC is still encouraging people to stay home as much as possible to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
