8 Top Finds for Memorial Day Sales

8 Top Finds for Memorial Day Sales

It's no surprise it's Memorial Day weekend and everything you could possibly imagine is ON SALE! And, if you're lucky, you can take advantage of the rewards programs your own credit cards may have! For example, DiscoverIT is offering 5% Cashback Rewards from April - June on anything spent at Restaurants & Wholesale Clubs such as Costco and Sam's Club.

While there's not much for sales at restaurants over Memorial Day weekends, there is certainly huge savings to be had at most retailers. According to an article from McNutt & Partners, increasing commercialization of the Memorial Day holiday started with this shift to it being a three-day weekend in the 1970s. They have fascinating information on how we went from such a somber holiday to a retail extravaganza.

Deals To Be Had

Ok, back to the deals... Like President's Day and Labor Day, Memorial Day is one of the largest retail weekends to find the best deals on anything from mattresses to furniture to home goods. We have compiled 8 Top Finds to look for when snooping the ads for such "deals".

If you're looking for more deals, CBS News has an extensive list chock full of deals here. Forbes also offers some great insight on various big sales.

Make Money While You Shop

These are all really great deals, but how can I afford them? CreditSoup offers several cards that offer various rewards options on everyday purchases. And, there are also other apps out there that you can earn cash just by shopping through them.

Here's how that works. If you plug in your rewards credit card as a payment option on the Rakuten app, for example, you are not only receiving cash back by using your card, you're also earning cash rewards paid out from the app! So basically, you're double dipping on your everyday purchases.

In Summary

Memorial Day sales are the best time to make that big purchase on staple items in your home, such as mattresses and furniture. And when you decide what big ticket item you are ready to buy, make sure you use the card with the best return on rewards. CreditSoup.com has some great options to checkout as far as rewards cards for that purchase.

Last, we don't want to forget that Memorial Day is definitely a day of remembrance. Finding deals while you shop is great, but please remember those that sacrificed their lives so that we have the freedoms we have here in America.
