You aren't misremembering those Tim & Eric-esque local mattress commercials with a mustached man shouting about Memorial Day fire sales. Those are a very real thing. However, Memorial Day sales moved online and they include much more than mattresses from Big Tim's House of Sleep during its annual fire 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. The sales are worth a look, but it's a waste of a perfectly fine day off (that has more meaning than mattresses for many) to run around trying to figure out where the deals are. (If you are running around, here are the best Memorial Day Weekend food deals you'll find while you're out and about.)

Below, you'll find a smattering of the best Memorial Day sales happening online and in-store around the country, including Amazon, Best Buy, Lowe's, and tons of others. Spend the time you saved hanging out with friends, family, and a grill covered in delicious food.
