What to shop for during Memorial Day 2022 — and what to avoid

Retailers are relying on sales to lighten their inventories after months of dealing with congested ports and delays, according to Marshal Cohen, chief industry advisor of consumer data company The NPD Group. “Sales are something retailers are needing right now to manage to get their inventories back in line — the late deliveries from the dock backups and shipping dilemma are clogging retail stores and the arrival of new receipts,” he said.

When looking for good deals to shop during Memorial Day, the key to finding discounts is to look for summer essentials, which McGrath said includes home and garden items, as well as home goods and outdoor furnishing from retailers like Wayfair and Overstock. Cohen added that home improvement categories and garden centers will also have deep discounts “as spring was late to arrive in many areas in the country.”

“This end-of-May sale is also a great time to research furniture sales as many of the larger furniture-focused retailers will offer deep discounting on bedroom sets, dining room sets, sofas and loveseats, and entertainment setups,” said Vipin Porwal, founder and consumer expert at cashback browser extension Smarty. But he recommended doing your research: “40% off bargain furniture, mattresses and appliances is not the same as 25% off quality name-brand items in the same category.”

However, Porwal noted that shoppers should wait on purchasing computers and mobile devices until later in the summer when back-to-school sales will likely offer deeper discounts on laptop, smartphones, tablets and other tech accessories. And while big-ticket devices like TVs will see several sales during Memorial Day weekend, you’ll likely see better discounts during Prime Day and “Christmas in July” type of summer sales, according to Porwal.
