The Memorial Day 2022 Sale is less than a full week away, but we've already stopped pretending that the Memorial Day Sale is in fact a single day. The truth is, it includes the whole week before the 'official' day, and we are well and truly in the thick of it! 

We're already starting to see some tempting deals as we approach the first major sales event of the year in the US. While the biggest savings are likely to come on Memorial Day itself on Monday 30 May and the weekend before, we know that retailers start their Memorial Day discounts earlier every year, so we've already started hunting for deals.

We've already found some good savings on iPads, Apple Watches, TVs and more. But even if you don't spot something that takes your fancy now, make sure you bookmark this page and come back regularly as we'll be updating it with direct links to the best deals as we spot them. And look out for our lives blogs over the Memorial Day weekend for more updates on the best Memorial Day deals, from tablets to mattresses.

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 do the Memorial Day 2022 sales 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.
