Best Buys In May

Memorial Day falls in late May, but Memorial Day sales often appear as early as four weeks earlier!

Gym Memberships

As the weather warms, many people switch to exercising outdoors, which means you can take advantage of seasonal promotions on gym membership fees.  Ask to have enrollment fees waived; or, inquire about additional discounts for long-term memberships.

Appliances and Cookware

Looking to update your kitchen?  Act now. Last year, over 20% of Memorial Day Sale featured bargains were things for the home.  Prices were often slashed up to 60%.


You won’t want to sleep on these deals.  Many stores offer major discounts on a large selection of mattresses in May.  If you aren’t committed to a particular brand, you can score a mattress for up to 50% off this month.


Bonus tip: If you enjoy finding unique treasures, May is a great time to go “thrifting” or treasure hunting at local yard sales.   Most people are spring cleaning, which means you could find a great selection of gently-used items.
