Memorial Day weekend is upon us. Hopefully, you’ll have time to relax, be with family, and take a moment to be thankful for all those who have served in the US Military. Once you’ve done all those things, maybe you’ll have a minute to checkout the many, many, very big Memorial Day deals on home goods and — you guessed it — tech & gadgets.
Whether in-store or online, many retail businesses will be offering fantastic deals over the coming weekend. From home goods to power tools to apparel and everything in between, you will find some awesome discounts this weekend. We list here how you can score some big discounts on tech and electronics. But before we dive-in, first take a look at the following safety tips to follow when finding Memorial Day deals:
Things to Keep in Mind when Shopping for Memorial Day Deals
- Look into the Retailer
Not all online retailers are created equal. A simple Google search will likely lead you to a wide variety of online stores that offer seemingly fantastic deals. Do not, however, whip out your credit card to make a purchase from just about any online store. Check out platforms such as Reseller Ratings or Better Business Bureau to see if an online store or seller is trustworthy.
- Check Price History
Just because an item looks like it has a really attractive price tag, it doesn’t mean that price truly was lowered. For all you know, only a couple of dollars was knocked off the original price even though the seller is claiming to offer a “huge discount” on the item. This is why tools such as Keepa, Honey, or The Camelizer are useful. These are browser apps that show you the price history of some items you’re looking to buy this Memorial Day weekend.
- Compare Prices
On top of checking the price history of the products, make sure that you cross check prices between retailers as well. Again, there are some handy tools you can use to do this. Great examples are Google Shopping, BizRate, Shopping.com, and PriceGrabber.
- Check Reviews
Reviews are also important when it comes to getting the most out of Memorial Day weekend deals. Not only do you have to read up on the reviews of the sellers, you also have to check what consumers say about the products themselves.
- Compare Items
Often, online deals are offered on older models of many products. For this reason, apart from needing to read product reviews, you also need to compare the items. Perhaps you will be happy with an older TV or laptop model, especially with the discounts available. But perhaps not. In order to avoid buyer’s remorse, make sure to check specs of items offered with discounts.
Now that we have covered some basic tips for getting the most out of your hard-earned money during this weekend’s sales, let’s focus on where you can find the best deals. Take a look at the following types of products and enjoy your best Memorial Day savings:
