The Memorial Day Weekend is here! Reports state that the weather in most of the country will be great for barbecues, picnics, and beach trips (and if you’re one of the lucky to live in Hawaii, you can go to the “best beach of 2014”). The Memorial Day Weekend is known for another thing: sales. Kind of like “Christmas in July,” “Labor Day Sales” — or any other special sale — the Memorial Day Weekend Sales only exist to bank on the celebratory factor of the holiday, despite what the holiday truly stands for.
Nevertheless, it shouldn’t be ignored that some of the best sales do happen during the Memorial Day Weekend, especially when it comes to patio furniture and barbecue utensils. So for all of you, below are the four best sales available for Memorial Day Weekend. It should be noted that the list will only be places where people may generally shop.
With the exception of exclusions, everything in the store is either 10, 15, or 20 percent off. This includes mens shoes, housewares, kids, mattresses, bed & bath, handbags, furniture, and kitchen. Why they don’t include womens is a mystery but I am guessing it is an exclusion. Also, there is an online exclusive of 25 percent off clearance items.
Everyone will get $10 off a purchase of $25 or more either online or at the store. Also, for anyone who spends $50, they will get $10 Kohl’s cash to use at a later time. There is an online exclusive of an extra 20 percent off swimwear for the family with 30 to 40 percent off select styles already. Technically, Kohl’s doesn’t have a Memorial Day Sale. This is just the sales they have for the Memorial Day weekend.
Shoppers can save up to 20 percent on patio furniture, tents, pools, gardening, grills, gear, and more of an outdoor nature. Home styles, such as home decor and bedding, are 25 percent off. Swimwear is also on sale too. Finally, Target Subscriptions, which are pre-set items delivered on a pre-set time, will get free shipping and an extra 5 percent if the REDcard (Target’s credit card) is used.
Best Buy’s Memorial Day Weekend sale is known simply as the “4 Day Sale.” It includes saving $30 to $130 on iPad mini with retina display, $1 iPhone 5s 16GB for Verizon Wireless or Sprint, or saving $60 to $130 on Select MacBook Pro Laptops. They even promote that all major appliances and electronics are 10 to 15 percent off.
There are plenty of other Memorial Day Weekend sales from other companies. The above four are just the places most people would utilize a Memorial Day Weekend Sale for. However, if you want a better deal for specific items, wait until Labor Day Weekend for clothing and Black Friday and Cyber Monday for electronics.
