MAJOR retailers including Amazon, Walmart and Home Depot have launched sales ahead of Memorial Day with up to 50% off.
Memorial Day isn’t until May 31, but shoppers can already get their hands on bargains ranging from homeware and tech to toys.
If you’re keen to use the three-day weekend for some shopping therapy, Amazon has so far reduced prices by up to 49%.
Meanwhile, Walmart, Home Depot and Target are offering bargains with up to 50% off online.
Some stores may also be offering deals in store on the day, so it’s worth keeping your eyes peeled – although not all stores will be open.
If you’re shopping online, be aware of delivery fees, which will increase the cost of your order.
How to compare prices to get the best deal
JUST because something is on offer, or is part of a sale, it doesn’t mean it’s always a good deal.
There are plenty of comparison websites out there that’ll check prices for you – so don’t be left paying more than you have to.
Most of them work by comparing the prices across hundreds of retailers.
Here are some ones you can use:
- Google Shopping is a tool that lets users search for and compare prices for products across the web. Simply type in keywords, or a product number, to bring up search results.
- CamelCamelCamel only works on goods being sold on Amazon. To use it, type in the URL of the product you want to check the price of.
- Honey is a price comparison tool that lets you compare prices through your browser. It can also find coupons and codes for saving money on items you’re looking at.
Below we’ve rounded up our favourite early Memorial Day deals online.
Before you splash the cash, make sure you shop around in case you find cheaper deals elsewhere.
Google’s price comparison tool, Google Shopping, is free and easy to use.
