When is Memorial Day 2023? 

Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May each year, meaning that Memorial Day 2023 takes place on May 29. 

When will Memorial Day sales start? 

Though Memorial Day itself falls later in the month, Memorial Day sales will start much earlier — and many are already underway. The bulk of the sales will be live by the middle of the month with most expiring after the long weekend. 

What should you buy on Memorial Day? 

Like most other annual holidays, the deals vary greatly for Memorial Day and you’ll find many of your favorite brands and retailers offering steep discounts. Often brand sales are sitewide, so you can save across several products, whereas retailers may focus on popular categories like 4K TV deals, mattress sales, and appliance offers. Given that Memorial Day is treated as an unofficial start to summer, it’s also a great opportunity to bag deals on patio furniture, yard tools and other outdoor essentials.
