Memorial Day is on the horizon, and we’re looking forward to a long weekend sipping cocktails by the pool, of course—but shopping all the best Memorial Day sales of 2022 might just be the most important item on our to-do list. This summer is shaping up to be an unforgettable one, and what better way to embrace the sunny mood than in a cute outfit and some picture-perfect accessories you scored a sweet deal on? Here’s everything you need to know about the best Memorial Day sales and deals.
When is Memorial Day?
Memorial Day is celebrated on the last Monday of May, and this year that falls on Monday, May 30. And because it marks the unofficial start of summer, it’s also the reason so many retailers (from Nordstrom to Best Buy to Walmart) offer some of the biggest sales of the year right about now.
When do Memorial Day sales start?
Even though Memorial Day always falls on a Monday, tons of sales land early, especially in the age of the internet; early-bird shoppers often get first dibs on the deals, especially on big-ticket items like mattresses, TVs, and washers. But those of you with the patience to hold out till the very end are rewarded with even deeper discounts, plus flash promos that only happen on the big day.
So although we’re still waiting on the biggest sales to start—we’re still on the hunt for 4K TV deals and appliance sales—now’s the time to pounce on all the fashion, beauty, and home decor you’ve been eyeing. Whether you’re priming your cart for a summer skincare haul or can hardly wait to refresh your swimsuit collection, we curated all the best Memorial Day fashion, beauty, and home deals worth shopping. Here are the best Memorial Day deals to shop early.
