The Memorial Day 2022 sales are just a couple of weeks away, so it's time to start thinking about what you might want to find a bargain on. If last year is anything to go by, we can expect savings on everything from laptops to TVs, monitors to drawing tablets. But to get the most out of the opportunities, you need to know where to look – and what you're looking for. 

The Memorial Day sale 2022 will be the first real sales event of the year for big bargains, so whether you have your eye on the latest Apple Watch, a new tablet or even a mattress, it makes sense to explore what's on offer. The problem is that there are so many potential details at so many different retailers, that it's hard to compare them all. We aim to solve that by seeking out the best Memorial Day sale bargains and linking straight to them on this page as they go live.

This year Memorial Day falls on Monday 30 May, but as has become the tradition in recent years, we expect retailers to start their Memorial Day sales before that – at least over the weekend prior if not the entire week before the day itself. We're already seeing some good deals, so we've made a head start linking the best current deals running on a range of products. We'll be updating the list of details below more regularly as the Memorial Day 2022 sale gets underway.

When is Memorial Day 2022?

The Memorial Day sales are named after the US Memorial Day federal holiday, which was created in the 19th century to honour all those who lost their life while serving in the US military. Since the 1970s, it doesn't fall on a fixed date but on the last Monday in May. That means that Memorial Day 2022 falls on Monday 30 May. Also widely considered the unofficial start to summer, Memorial Day has long been an occasion for retail sales and discounts across a range of products in the US.

When does the Memorial Day 2022 start?

Like many sales events, the actual timing of deals has been starting earlier and earlier over the years as retailers try to get ahead of the competition. This means that while the biggest deals might be saved for the weekend before Memorial Day 2022, the Memorial Day sales really begin up to a whole week beforehand.

Keep watching this page for deals as they appear. Deals usually run until midnight on Memorial Day itself, but big discounts may sell out quickly. The next big sales event after the Memorial Day sale isn't until Amazon Prime Day, which will probably take place in July, so it's well worth sweeping quickly to buy a bargain when you see a good deal.
