Memorial Day is now over, but there are still some great deals happening. The last Monday in May marks the end of spring and is a great time to get deals on everything from fitness gear to at-home gym equipment. Whether you’re planning to revamp your workout underwear wardrobe or finally take the plunge on a new treadmill desk, the long holiday weekend is chock full of chances for you to save.

What Our Experts Say

"According to RetailMeNot insights, we see an average of 19 percent off in the fitness and sporting goods category, but have seen deals like up to 50 percent off Memorial Day sale at Adidas, and $5 off $25 at Big5 Sporting Goods." — Sara Skirboll, Shopping & Trends Expert at RetailMeNot

What is Memorial Day?

Memorial Day is a national holiday that honors all of those who have died serving our country. It also marks the unofficial start of summer.

In more recent years, Memorial Day weekend has become known as an opportunity to score great deals on activewear and fitness gear such as elliptical machines and even something as specific as insoles for flat feet. And since Memorial Day closes out the spring, retailers use it as a time to provide deep discounts on their existing inventory to make room for more.

When is Memorial Day 2021?

Memorial Day always takes place on the last Monday in May. This year, Memorial Day falls on May 31, 2021.

When Do Memorial Day Sales Start in 2021?

While the biggest discounts typically start the Friday before the holiday, May 28, many stores offer reduced prices earlier than that. Since the sales typically last through the long weekend up to Memorial Day on May 31, you'll have multiple opportunities to save.

What Is Usually On Sale for Memorial Day?

On top of home goods such as mattresses, furniture, and home appliances, Memorial Day is full of great deals on fitness apparel, equipment, and tech accessories. Many brands and retailers don’t announce sales until we’re right up against Memorial Day Weekend, but that won’t stop us from planning out where we’re going to shop.

  • Spring Apparel: Since Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer, retailers like BrooksFitbitASICSNikeChampion Adidas, and more will offer big discounts on their inventory. Whether you need a new pair of running shoes or wish to update your leggings collection, head to these retailers to score great deals.
  • Sports Equipment: Retailers know consumers' eagerness to keep their fitness goals aligned for summer, so you’ll likely find lower prices on summer sports equipment. REI and Dick's Sporting Goods are great places to look for deals on items such as kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, camping gear, balance boards, plus other outdoor apparel and accessories.

"Shoppers might not be seeing the best deals this holiday weekend, but keep an eye out for the big-ticket items like ellipticals, treadmills, and Pelotons. These big-ticket items may see deep savings that won't be accessible until much later in the year." — Sara Skirboll, Shopping & Trends Expert at RetailMeNot

  • Fitness Machines: If you’ve been wanting to buy a stationary bike, treadmill, rower, or any other large piece of fitness machinery, now is the time to invest. Fitness machine brands like BowflexNordic Track, and Hydrow are great places to shop for home-gym equipment at a fraction of the price.
