TripSavvy / Chloe Jeong As Memorial Day has come and gone, we’ve stopped updating this post with sales and can’t promise the ones below are still available. Check back later this year for updated deals. With Memorial Day signaling the unofficial start of summer, let the beach excursions, SUP adventures, and hiking trips commence. The weekend leading up to the U.S. holiday kicks off the sunny season, but it’s also a great time to score discounts from your favorite brands. According to RetailMeNot insights, shoppers will see an average discount of 18 percent off on camping, sporting goods, hunting, and fishing gear on Memorial Day weekend. "Historically we have seen deals as high as 60 percent off select camping and hiking gear from Dick's Sporting Goods," says Sara Skirboll, Shopping & Trends Expert at RetailMeNot. What is Memorial Day? Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the U.S. that commemorates and honors those who have died while serving in the military. It differs from Veterans Day, which is observed every November 11 and recognizes everyone who has served in the Armed Forces during both wartime and peacetime. When is Memorial Day 2021? In 2021, Memorial Day will be observed on Monday, May 31. The holiday always falls on the last Monday in May. When Do Memorial Day Sales Start in 2021? The weekend of Memorial Day is a prime time for sales because stores are clearing out inventory from winter in time for summer. Sales typically start on Friday, May 28 and most run through the holiday on Monday, May 31. However, many stores have extended their sales through the entire month of May. What is Usually on Sale for Memorial Day? As stores—both physical locations and online—turn over their inventory, numerous items and categories suited for the season get marked down. "While the best deals on these outdoor essentials are found in October before the start of the winter season, shoppers will be able to find discounts on outdoor gear like camping items, sporting goods, hunting, and fishing gear," says Sara Skirboll, Shopping & Trends Expert at RetailMeNot.
