Memorial Day sales are already happening at these retailers


Early Memorial Day sales

Memorial Day may not be until May 25, but many retailers are already celebrating by launching early sales this week. With Amazon Prime Day reportedly pushed back to August (if it happens at all), Memorial Day sales mark one of the last chances for major savings before late summer. That means that now’s a great time for some retail therapy to stave away the social distancing blues.

A lot of Memorial Day sales revolve around mattresses and home goods, but we’ve also found great deals on outdoor clothing and gear, which would certainly come in handy if you’re able to social distance somewhere rural as the weather heats up. There are a handful of tech deals happening as well, plus savings on home office furniture — both would make a good investment as in person offices remain shuttered for the foreseeable future.

Nearly all of the following discounts last through Memorial Day itself (we’ve noted the few instances when they don’t). Keep an eye out for more deals the closer it gets to the actual holiday (especially on outdoor items, including furniture, decor and grills), and check out the savings you can score right now below!

Tech and electronics



Lenovo is celebrating Memorial Day for three weeks this year, starting with Sneak Peek sales going on now through May 17.

Outdoor clothing and gear
