"Three-day weekends during the summer are some of the best times to buy mattresses. And Memorial Day weekend does not disappoint. You have time to research, time to test, check them out safely in-store and online. And number three, you have time to make the purchase," said Skirboll.
She says shoppers have found mattresses up to 70% off.
"Category number two, outdoor entertainment. As the temperatures heat up, so do the deals. Outdoor grills, outdoor patio furniture," lists Skirboll.
And finally, she says this is the weekend to shop for appliances for the home, saying they're often 20% to 40% off.
"With graduation season among us, it's a great time to think about a new appliance as a gift. Small appliances that fit on you countertop, like blenders, microwaves, toaster ovens, things like that, air fryers for example," she said.
Skirboll says the trick to saving money shopping online is to install a browser extension. Ibotta, Rakuten, Capital One Shopping, Honey, and RetailMeNot's Deal Finder can help you find the lowest price on an item.
