Although shopping can defeat the purpose of Memorial Day, many stores have taken advantage of the long holiday weekend to provide Memorial Day sales and deals. While some of these Memorial Day deals are available only on Memorial Day, others are available in the days following the national holiday as well, to extend the savings – or perhaps out of respect for our fallen soldiers and those who wish to honor their memory instead of feeling obligated to use the day for shopping. Here are some of my favorite Memorial Day deals that are available this year:
Jos. A. Bank – 40% off 2 shirts, ties, sportswear and dress pants, OR 50% off 3 items, OR 60% off 6 items. If you need classy menswear (as I often do), this Memorial Day sale should not be missed (good today, May 31 only).
Gap – Save 25% off a purchase or $75 or more. And since the Gap’s prices are so reasonable, you can probably get most of your summer wardrobe for $75…good on May 31 only.
Dick’s Sporting Goods – Take 20% off clearance items and 15% off all regularly priced items. Extra savings on already reduced prices? That’s a great idea for a Memorial Day sale! Good on May 31 only.
Home Shopping Network – Take 60% off all clearance items. If you’ve been mulling over a specific item, now is the time to get it. The site does not mention when this Memorial Day deal expires, so don’t wait long.
HP – Save now on items from the Hewlett-Packard home and office store. This Memorial Day sale is on until Tuesday, June 1.
Charlotte Russe - Buy 1 item, get the second 50% off. This sale is available until June 2.
Finally, there are some chain stores that offer store-wide Memorial Day deals, without promoting a specific special offer. If you’re in the market for new housewares, electronics, jewelry or clothing, you can check out some of these favorites – JC Penney, Kmart, Office Depot, Kohl’s and Children’s Place.
