Memorial Day Sale Roundup
By: Christian Gordun
This year, retailers are pulling out all the stops when it comes to slashing prices for their annual Memorial Day sales, and that's a boon to consumers. We've picked a few of the choicest deals from around the web on everything from patio furniture to iPads. Here's a look at our Memorial Day roundup:
With spring in full bloom, it's all about keeping your living space (interior and exterior) in top form for weekend BBQs. During the Memorial Day Savings Event at The Home Depot, you'll find hundreds of items for home and garden on sale while supplies last. Trimmers, edgers and blowers are up to 25% off (online only), and you'll save up to 30% off plus free shipping on select patio furniture. At Lowe's, another one of our favorite home supply stores, you'll save 15% off in-stock composite and treated decking material. Sheds, hoses and grills are also on sale. Our favorite deal? The Aussi Walk-A-Bout Charcoal Grill for just $49.99.
From now through the beginning of June, we're seeing amazing bargains on major appliances from name brands, and if your washing machine just isn't getting your whites white, now is the time to buy. Through June 1 at Best Buy you'll save from 10%-30% off dishwashers, washing machines, refrigerators, ovens and microwaves from the likes of LG and Bosch. And during their Pre-Memorial Day Extra Savings Event, Sears is offering up to 30% off appliances from Samsung, Kenmore and Whirlpool.
With high school and college graduations happening across the country, and Father's Day just around the corner, retailers are offering terrific discounts on all things technological. MacMall.com has great gifts that both grads and dads will love. Save $599 off a 13.3'' MacBook Pro with Retina display or $80 off a LaCie Rugged USB3 Mobile Hard Drive, perfect for storing music, photos and important documents. Walmart is offering significant discounts on laptops and desktops from Dell, Gateway and HP and banner deals on Apple essentials including iPads, iPhones and iPods.
The season of the beach (and the pool) is on its way, and that means many retailers are marking down their swimwear to entice buyers. At Kohl's, you'll save 40%-50% off bathing suits, shorts and cover-ups for women and juniors. We love the variety of eye-catching bikinis and tummy-flattering one-pieces, but we'd suggest surfing their website first as many items are available for purchase online only. Looking for something for Dad? Check out Nautica's selection of snazzy printed and graphic boardshorts for men. You'll save an extra 40% off sale items and receive free shipping on orders over $50.
As you may recall, May is the month to buy a new mattress if you happen to be in the market for one. Look no further than Macy's, who, starting May 22, is offering 30%-50% off mattresses, plus an extra 10% off select styles. Our pick? A Macybed Anniversary Cushion Firm Pillowtop Queen 2-pc Mattress Set is on sale for only $279, down from $769. At Sleepy's, you'll save up to 50% off mattresses from Sealy, Serta and Simmons, and receive free delivery now through Memorial Day with any online purchase above $599.99. With deals like these, we're certain you'll sleep more soundly.
