When is Memorial Day 2022?

Memorial Day is an American federal holiday that always falls on the last Monday in May to honor the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.

The 2022 Memorial Day holiday falls on Monday, May 30, with the long weekend kicking off on Friday, May 27.

When do Memorial Day sales start?

We'll start to see some Memorial Day sales pop up at the beginning of the month of May, but most official offers will begin the week before the official day, kicking off on Monday, May 23.

All sales will last through the holiday weekend, and most will end on Memorial Day. We'll be updating this guide with all of the early offers, so make sure to bookmark this page for all the latest updates. 

Where can I find the best Memorial Day deals?

Because Memorial Day is the unofficial start to summer, you can find discounts on outdoor items such as grills, patio furniture, planters, lawnmowers, and gardening tools. Other popular categories include major appliances, furniture, kitchen devices, and vacuums from retailers like Home Depot, Best Buy, and Lowe's.

Memorial Day is also a fantastic time to find deals on mattresses, with popular brands like Casper, Nectar, and Temper-Pedic participating in sitewide sales with some of the best offers you'll find all year.

If you're not interested in home items, Memorial Day sales also offer tech bargains with impressive discounts on laptops from Dell and HP and cheap TV deals from Best Buy, Walmart, and Amazon.

Nectar mattress: from

Nectar mattress: from $798 $499 + $399 of free gifts
Editor's choice:
The best Memorial Day mattress sale is at Nectar, where all three popular mattresses have a $400 discount - plus you get $399-worth of free sleep accessories added to your order too. Our top pick is the Nectar Memory Foam mattress: it's medium-firm, with a cooling cover, and we found it to be extremely comfortable and supportive (plus our sister site Tom's Guide recommends it as the best mattress you can buy). For pure value, this mattress deal is tough to beat.

Saatva Classic mattress: save $225 when you spend $1,000 at Saatva

Saatva Classic mattress: save $225 when you spend $1,000 at Saatva
Top luxury pick - The official Memorial Day sale at Saatva cuts $200 off the company's luxury mattresses, but we can beat that with a $225 discount when you spend over $1,000. This deal applies to all Saatva's mattresses, but we recommend the Saatva Classic. It's an outrageously comfortable hotel-quality innerspring mattress, made from eco-friendly foams and a cushioning Euro pillow top with a durable dual steel coil support system. With $225 off it's a bargain.
