As Memorial Day has come and gone, we’ve stopped updating this post with sales and can’t promise the ones below are still available. Check back later this year for updated deals.
It may have seemed like the longest winter ever, but thankfully summer’s finally here. And with it comes our favorite part of the season—grilling and barbequing, which coincide with summer sales, of course. Memorial Day came and went, but there's still time to shop the sales.
What is Memorial Day?
Memorial Day, which is on the last Monday in May every year, is a time when we remember the military personnel who have lost their lives while serving our country in the military.
It’s also one of the biggest sales days all year long, with thousands of products going on sale throughout the weekend leading up to the holiday—seriously, think every kitchen appliance, from grill pans to Instant Pots.
When is Memorial Day 2021?
When Do Memorial Day Sales Start in 2021?
Right now! Brands like Oxo, Bloomingdales, Williams Sonoma, and many more have already announced sales or started them. You can look for the biggest discounts closer to the actual holiday, so likely starting Friday, May 28 through Monday, May 31.
What Goes on Sale for Memorial Day?
All kinds of kitchen appliances, upgrades, dishes, and more are on sale come Memorial Day. "According to RetailMeNot insights, shoppers will see an average of 60 percent off cookware items, from pots and pans to small appliances and even drinkware, plates, and silverware," says Sara Skirboll, Shopping & Trends Expert at RetailMeNot. In the past, brands like Belk, Home Depot, Lowe's, Overstock, Wayfair, and more have all had sales for the holiday weekend. Sign up for a brand's email newsletters to get the updates on all upcoming sales, says Skirboll.
Read on for everything you can still shop post-Memorial Day.
Save up to 70 percent off small appliances like toaster ovens and blenders, cookware like cast iron pots and Instant Pots, with a special sale on GE appliances. We especially like the 63 percent off deal of Viking's 3-Ply Copper Clad 13-piece cookware set.
Although Nordstrom won’t be offering a defined Memorial Day sale (the Half-Yearly Sale is currently running through June 6), expect several items to still have steep discounts in the weeks leading up to the holiday. Think glassware, stylish wood serveware, the cult Our Place pan set, several kitchen tools, and stoneware. Prices will range from 10 to 40 percent off.
