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 travel deals may look a little different this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
