When is Memorial Day 2021? 

Memorial Day 2021 occurs on Monday, May 31. The federal holiday honors the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Memorial Day is referred to as the unofficial start of summer. It's also the first major sales event for the summer season. (It's often followed by Amazon's Prime Day). 

What are the best Memorial Day sales now?

Memorial Day sales tend to focus on outdoor items like patio furniture, grills, and summer apparel. On the tech front, Memorial Day sales are generally great for finding deals on laptops, TVs, and fitness devices. Although they don't fall into either category, mattress deals also tend to see an uptick during Memorial Day sales. 

Memorial Day sales and the Nintendo Switch

No holiday is complete without gaming deals and Memorial Day is no exception. However, if you're hoping to find deals on the Nintendo Switch, we've got bad news. It's unlikely you'll even see it in stock. Switch inventory is still extremely depleted across the country as Nintendo struggles to ramp up production. The silver lining is that Switch inventory is expected to make a comeback later this summer. So if you happen to come across a Switch console in stock at list price on Memorial Day — buy it immediately. (Make sure to follow our guide on where to buy the Nintendo Switch for the latest news on inventory).
