Memorial Day Sales: A Shopping Guide To The Best And Worst Deals Both Online And Offline

Memorial Day Weekend offers some of the best sales available throughout the year. With the Internet, there are even more opportunities to shop both online and offline to get the best deals available. Stores like Old Navy and Banana Republic offer sales both online and offline with steep discounts of up to 50 percent, according to the Huffington Post.

Just about all the major stores have online shops now that offer their products for sale including Bloomingdales and Macy’s, and there are even some offers only available online. Even if the offers aren’t advertised publicly, to get the best deals, check their websites to see what is for sale. Often, products not available in the store can be available online allowing for additional savings. Many of these companies also offer free shipping making it easy to shop and save additional money. Don’t forget to check for coupon codes to get any additional savings.

For those who want furniture, electronics, or Memorial Day laptop sales, sites like Overstock and Ebay offer the best chance for finding the bargains, and they have a wide selection of products available. Ebay offers additional bargains on all electronics with discounts up to 40 percent off and free shipping.

For those who want the Apple Macbook and Apple Macbook Pro, a few extra dollars gets you extra features that would normally cost hundreds of dollars. Hewlitt Packard computer deals are plentiful as are Dell, Toshiba, and Lenovo for those who want alternatives, reports Tech Times. Consider shopping by store on Ebay to get all your electronic items and combine all your purchases into one order to get the most savings and save on shipping and handling too.

Another place to consider for the best Memorial Day sales on both electronic deals and appliances is Best Buy. Many deals are available on furniture, too, including Ashley Furniture, which is offering one of the best deals on furniture this year. Home Depot is offering a sale so it’s a good time to buy for those DIY home projects.

Shopping isn’t just confined to clothing, electronics, and furniture. For those who want to stock up on office supplies and other items for your business, Office Depot is a great place to start. Office Depot offers an extensive catalog online, and they offer electronics for one stop shopping.

There are items to avoid too when shopping those Memorial Day sales. With Memorial Day as the first weekend to go swimming and participate in camping and outdoor sports, swim suits and other sporting goods are in high demand, and prices usually rise. It’s better to wait until after the holiday is over or at the end of the season to get that new suit. This applies to buying lawn furniture and barbecue grills too. Prices are lowest at the end of the summer and during off season. If you need these now, it pays to shop around, and since many sites offer their sales pages online now, it is easy to compare to find the best deals, according to USA Today.

Many stores will be open for the Memorial Day sales, including Walmart. It’s a good idea to check to make sure the stores you want to visit are open. Since it’s a federal holiday, some businesses and all federal offices will be closed, including the post office.
