Like other big-box retailers, Walmart offers plenty of Memorial Day deals to ring in summer 2016. The retailer offers its famous rollback prices on a number of Walmart deals on products in-store, but it also offers specials for shopping online.
"For big-ticket purchases, consider the free pick-up option, as shipping surcharges on mattresses and appliances often cancel out or greatly reduce rollback savings," said Kendal Perez of CouponSherpa.com, a coupon and deals site that also features Walmart coupons.
Alicia DeMartini of BeFrugal.com said an important feature of Walmart deals over Memorial Day weekend are the store's Memorial Day featured categories. Plus, you can get free shipping on orders of $50 or more. With this advice in mind, click through to see the best things to buy at Walmart during Memorial Day 2016.
Memorial Day Sales on Everyday Items
From food to clothing items, Walmart is offering great Memorial Day deals on tons of appliances, groceries, clothing and more. Here are some of the best discounts and sales you can expect this year.
Memorial Day sales at Walmart include rollback prices on kitchen appliances, where you can take up to 65 percent off, said Perez. For example, you can save 50 percent on a Presto electric griddle.
Walmart's deals on appliances don't end in the kitchen. Brent Shelton of FatWallet.com said Memorial Day weekend is a great time to time to buy air conditioners, too. You can save money on various types of air conditioners, such as $76 off a Frigidaire window air conditioner or $70 off an LG portable air conditioner.
Buying new bedding might be the last thing on your mind this Memorial Day weekend, but Walmart's deals on mattresses might change your mind. Last year, Walmart sold mattresses for as low as $99, according to Kerry Sherin of Offers.com, a website that combines many coupons, including coupons for Walmart.
For Memorial Day 2016, Walmart's mattress deals continue. The store is offering its Super Mattress Savings as part of its Memorial Day sales, with some mattresses as low as $79, like the Signature Sleep Gold Inspire 6-inch memory foam mattress. Or, you can save nearly $700 on the Linenspa 10-inch gel memory foam mattress, which is only around $300.
Just in time for your Memorial Day barbecue, take advantage of Walmart's deals on food, including $10 off your first online grocery order worth $50 or more using the coupon code REALEASY, according to Slickdeals.net, which shares, rates and reviews deals and coupons.
