Remember the terrible Memorial Day mattress sale commercials you saw as a kid? Maybe you still see them. They aren't a random isolated incident. Memorial Day sales are a real thing, and it's not just mattresses that see deep discounts. (Though, yes, mattresses are totally on sale.)
Memorial Day is a day to honor the individual men and women who died in military service, but it has simultaneously become one of the biggest sale days of the year outside of Black Friday. And since it's a waste of a day off to spend hours trying to figure out which stores are running sales, we collected a bunch of the best ones for you here. Sales online and in stores across the country are listed below to make sure there's more time during your day off for hitting a Memorial Day parade or celebrating National Burger Day (yes, it's the same day) by grilling in the park.
