Best Memorial Day deals 2023 to shop now

Most discounts are available for a limited time and prices change frequently, so we’ll keep you updated.
These wrist and ankle weights are available in 1-pound and 2-pound options. They won a Select 2023 Wellness Award and are a staff favorite workout accessory. You can wear them on walks or during exercise classes, and are especially convenient for traveling. I throw the Bala Bangles — which come in a storage pouch — in my suitcase so I can use them to do workouts in hotel rooms.
If you're traveling this summer, a new suitcase may be on your shopping list. This medium-sized option from Samsonite has four multi-directional spinner wheels and a built-in luggage lock to protect your belongings. There's a reversible panel inside the suitcase that has four pockets to keep you organized, and to add extra space, you can expand the suitcase by 1.5 inches. The suitcase's exterior is made from polycarbonate, a tough, scratch-resistant material, according to the brand.
Casper’s Foam Pillow is also a Select 2023 Wellness Awards winner — editorial director Lauren Swanson says it has a supportive and “cloud-like” feel. The pillow is constructed from perforated memory foam so air can circulate through the material, adding breathability. You can purchase the pillow in standard and king sizes.
This Amazon Fire Stick is compatible with HD and 4K UHD TVs. Once you plug the device into the back of your TV and connect it to Wi-Fi, you can access streaming services, live TV, music apps and more. The Fire Stick comes with a remote that’s equipped with Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant.
Brooklyn Bedding’s weighted blanket — a 2023 Select Wellness Awards winner — is designed with a chunky open-knit weave, which I find makes it breathable and helps keep you cool. The blanket gets its weight from a polyester filling and is covered in a polyester jersey knitted fabric. You can purchase the 50-by-60-inch throw blanket in 10-pound or 15-pound weights.
Dyson makes some of our favorite cordless vacuums, some of which are especially helpful when it comes to removing pet hair from floors like the V8 Origin+ model. The brush bar in the vacuum’s head cleans itself by detangling hair that gets wrapped around it. You can also convert the appliance into a handheld vacuum to clean furniture, cars, curtains and more. The vacuum comes with a crevice and combination tool.
Solo Stove’s 1.4-pound Mesa fire pit measures 6.8 inches tall and 5.1 inches in diameter, which is small enough to place it on tabletops, according to the brand. You can roast marshmallows for s’mores in the smokeless flame, or simply enjoy the warmth it emits. The Mesa fire pit burns pellets or the brand’s mini firewood sticks. It also comes in an extra-large size, which measures 8.6 inches tall and 7 inches in diameter.
Designed with small spaces in mind, this device from Blueair is a fan and air purifier in one. Its filter removes over 99% of allergens from the air, according to the brand, and it has a built-in air quality indicator — in auto mode, the device adjusts its settings based on air quality conditions. You can also purchase machine-washable pre-filters separately.
If you’re looking for a new home security system, consider Ring’s Video Doorbell, which allows you to monitor who’s at your door using your phone, tablet or computer. The Wi-Fi-equipped doorbell pairs with a companion app, allowing you to see, hear and speak to visitors. It’s powered by a built-in rechargeable battery and works with Alexa voice assistant.
Samsung makes some of the best TV models you can buy with great built-in audio systems. This Wi-Fi-enabled 65-inch smart TV has QLED panels to offer bright, vibrant colors and its adaptive picture properties allow the screen to automatically adjust as your room gets brighter or darker, according to the brand. The TV also comes with multiple voice assistants built-in, so you can choose if you want to use Alexa, Google Assistant or Bixby.
Brooklinen’s Luxe Hardcore Sheet Set comes recommended by Select’s Rebecca Rodriguez, who says the sheets are the sheets are buttery soft and don’t make her feel hot while she's sleeping. The set comes with a flat sheet, fitted sheet and two pillowcases, all of which are made from 100% long-staple cotton and have a 480 thread count. The sheets are available in sizes ranging from twin to California king.
If you’re taking a flight soon, make the experience more enjoyable with this travel gadget from Twelve South. The adapter lets you use your wireless headphones in places that only have a headphone jack, like on planes.You plug the AirFly into the headphone jack and connect them to your headphones via Bluetooth to start listening. The device has up to 20 hours of battery life, according to the brand.
You can install this bidet on most standard toilets, according to the brand — its adjustable fasteners secure the TUSHY between the toilet bowl and seat. The bidet offers light to strong water pressure and you can adjust the nozzle’s angle to target different areas.
Sleeping on a satin pillowcase like this one can help keep you cool, as well as reduce frizz, hair breakage and acne, according to the brand. Kitsch — a Select staff-favorite brand — offers its satin pillowcase in standard/queen and king sizes, and you can purchase it in a variety of colors and patterns. The pillowcase has a 4.7-star average rating from over 15,700 reviews on Amazon.

What is Memorial Day?
Memorial Day was officially established in 1967 as a way to pay tribute to U.S. Armed Forces service members — unofficially, its roots go back to the Civil War. It also marks the unofficial beginning of summer, having become an American tradition filled with weekend travel and outdoor gatherings.
When do Memorial Day sales end?
Shoppers can expect to see the most Memorial Day sales occur during the three-day holiday weekend. However, some sales extend beyond Memorial Day. Select brands and retailers run savings events into the last few days of May or early June, allowing you to browse last-minute Memorial Day sales if you forgot to buy something on your wish list.
