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

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.

  • Washington, DC. What better time to visit the nation’s capital than over Memorial Day weekend?

  • 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.
