It happens every year: You blink once in April and suddenly Memorial Day is the upcoming weekend. As with deals themed around any holiday, Memorial Day sales kicked off far earlier than the few days preceding the actual calendar date. We’ve been keeping track of them for weeks — here’s everything you need to know about this year’s big Memorial Day sales.

When is Memorial Day, and when do the sales start?

This year, Memorial Day falls on Monday, May 27. But Memorial Day weekend — the time when most of the big sales will be taking place — starts on Friday, May 24. We expect to see lots of discounts on offer during the three-day weekend, especially from mattress, appliance, and outdoor goods brands. No matter what you’re shopping for, you should be able to find plenty of cost-cutting deals, many of which have already begun.

Are Memorial Day sales starting early?

A ton of brands are holding “early access” events leading up to a bigger sale during Memorial Day weekend, and we’ve listed all of those that are already live below. Others aren’t necessarily labeled as early Memorial Day sales, but you can already find a lot of savings on outdoor items, home appliances, and select electronics at retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart. We do think the deals will be much better as we get closer to Memorial Day, so it may be best to just wait it out.

Though Memorial Day weekend doesn’t officially begin until May 24, keep an eye out for sales starting earlier that week on May 20. (Update: Amazon’s Memorial Day sale has officially begun, and features savings of up to 40% off on Amazon devices, other select electronics, outdoor goods, and more. The sale runs until May 27.)

What to buy during Memorial Day sales

Memorial Day is always a huge time for doorbuster mattress sales, but we also expect to see big discounts on outdoor items and appliances for the summer, as well as other select home appliances and electronics. Look out for items like grills, lawn care equipment, gardening supplies, and outdoor furniture.

We also foresee popular kitchen items going on sale, as well as big-ticket items like TVs, headphones, laptops, and fitness equipment.

What are the best Memorial Day sales?

The worthwhile Memorial Day sales aren’t all that plentiful just yet, but more will be on the way shortly. Here are some of the best Memorial Day sales and deals that we could find so far.

Why we like it

It’s no secret that a good mattress is going to cost you quite a big chunk of change, but thankfully during Avocado’s Memorial Day sale, their budget-friendly Eco Organic Mattress is extremely affordable (starting at just $699 for a twin size). Made from certified organic latex, cotton, and wool, the Eco Organic Mattress strikes a great balance between comfort and support with its medium-firm feel, making it a great choice for all types of sleepers. The mattress also features natural cooling, and absorbs motion transfer.
