When it comes to blowout sales, chances are high that you’ve already begun seeing ads for Memorial Day specials. As the weather turns warmer in most parts of the country, cookoffs, campouts, and time spent with others play a big role in the celebrations, and it has also become a traditional big sales weekend for American consumers. Summer 2020 may look a little different this year thanks to Covid-19, but you can still take advantage of the best Memorial Day sales and deals around as you shop the price drops on big-ticket items. We’ve rounded up the best Memorial Day deals by category to help you stack those discounts on everything from mattresses to patio furniture and everything in between.
Need a New Mattress? Now is the Time
Over the last decade, the mattress industry has turned Memorial Day into the prime time to buy. Expect more sales to come, but currently, several brands are offering deals on mattresses this Memorial Day.
Get 30% off any Amerisleep mattress and accessories including sheets, pillows and duvets until June 1 with code MD30, plus free delivery.
For organic mattresses, use WEHONOR200 for $200 off an Avocado mattress, and add a bed frame to your order for an additional $150 off using BED150. Verified military, educators, EMTs, firefighters, law enforcement, nurses and doctors can also save an additional $50 on their mattress. If you already have a mattress, use 2FREEPILLOWS for organic pillow options (cannot be combined with the previous offers).
