How to save more on Memorial Day

According to Consumer Reports, May is the best month to buy air conditioners, freezers, grills, mattresses, strollers, smartwatches, lawn equipment, and other home improvement and decor items. 

The deals don’t stop at the Memorial Day sale. Many retailers will offer additional discounts on top of sale prices if you sign up for a rewards program, email updates, or a store credit card. You may also snag a promo if you’re a student or if it’s your first order.

Poke around to see if you can find any promotional offers and pay attention to any pop-up ads so you don’t miss an opportunity to save money on your purchase. Usually, a sales representative will ask you to sign up if you’re physically in a store, but you can ask during checkout if not. Some businesses may not let you combine coupons while others do. Either way, it’s worth a try to rack up savings.

Furthermore, big-name retailers like Best Buy offer a price match guarantee, so shop around to see if you can find a product cheaper elsewhere before you buy it. That way you know you’re getting the best deal around. 


Memorial Day weekend is one of the best times of the year to go shopping. Just about every retailer will offer promotions, and you’ll score the deepest discounts on appliances, mattresses, and seasonal goods. Add more savings to your purchases by signing up for a rewards program or by taking advantage of price match guarantee promotions.
