The first week of May is traditionally a quiet one, but leave it to retailers to shake things up. From Best Buy to Walmart, multiple retailers are offering sneak peeks of their Memorial Day sales with sitewide discounts that take up to 40% off some of our favorite gear and household items.
Remember, Memorial Day isn't till May 29, but retailers like offering early bargains way ahead of the actual holiday. I've been tracking retail holidays for over a decade and can spot a true price low from a faux flash sale. So I've combed through today's best sales to pick out the top deals I'd buy myself. Keep in mind that there's a chance some of these could get cheaper as we approach Memorial Day, but I don't foresee them being significantly cheaper. In other words, these are the best preview sales you can shop right now.
