Memorial Day: More people traveling this year, and trips to Europe up

Sales abound on Memorial Day

Mattress IMG_9554Although summer officially begins June 21, for many the season really starts during the Memorial Day weekend. 

Memorial Day sales provide an opportunity to get some good deals. But buyer beware, this isn’t the time to buy summer items

Dealnews.com offers these tips for getting bargains at the Memorial Day sales:

Save up to 90 percent on spring clothing 

Expect to see from 20 percent to 90 percent off at stores such as Uniqlo, Old Navy, Banana Republic, Vera Bradley, Hollister, PacSun, and Eddie Bauer.

Coupons aren't just for clothes 

You could get extra savings on travel, BBQ grill sets, appliances, patio furniture, and more. 

Home goods stores will take up to 75 percent off 

Lowe's is likely to take up to 30 percent off select items, and Home Depot's Memorial Day sales are offering bargains, too, with up to 37 percent off select items. And, good sales are also likely to come from Sears, JCPenney, and Cymax. 

Save on a better night's sleep

May is usually a good time to replace your mattress with a new one. Prices could start as low as $125 for a twin mattress. 

Book your next vacation

Memorial Day weekend is actually a decent time to book your summer travel.

Beyond Memorial Day 

While most sales tend to end on Memorial Day or the day after, some sales are extended through mid-June or later.
