Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
When is Memorial Day 2023?
Memorial Day was initially celebrated on May 30th, regardless of what day it fell on until the Uniform Holidays Bill was passed in 1968. This bill moved Memorial Day to be recognized on the last Monday of May to ensure that federal holidays reliably gave Americans a three-day weekend.
On that note, Memorial Day 2023 is Monday, May 29.
Is Memorial Day a good time to buy a TV?
Absolutely! Although Memorial Day may not feature the huge selection or deeper discounts that bigger shopping days like Black Friday and Cyber Monday are known for, major retailers are hoping to use this federal holiday to unload some of last year’s TVs to make room for the latest models coming soon.
It’s an excellent time to buy a sizable quality OLED or QLED 4K display for a low price from major brands, including LG, Samsung, and Sony, but TV manufacturers known for their budget-friendly options like Hisense and TCL are sure to offer attractive sales over the three-day weekend, too.
When do Memorial Day TV sales start?
Although you may see a few brands launching their sales early, the majority of the big TV discounts won’t be available until the Monday before Memorial Day.
When do Memorial Day TV sales end?
Some of the Memorial Day TV sales may extend into the next week by a day or so, but the vast majority will end on midnight, May 29th. Do your research and go into Memorial Day weekend with a plan to get the TV you want at a steep discount before they sell out—or Memorial Day weekend ends.
Where will the best Memorial Day TV sales be?
The two best places to find the greatest Memorial Day TV sales are from TV manufacturer’s websites, such as LG, Sony, and Hisense, and retail stores like Best Buy, Target, and Walmart. Make notes of the most attractive models and compare the price between retailers to get the best deal on the TV you want.
What Memorial Day TV deals can you expect?
The best Memorial Day sales are going to come directly from the major TV manufacturers themselves, (LG, Samsung, Sony, etc.) as well as from retailers like Walmart and Best Buy.
Expect to see deals as small as $50 off already affordable TVs, to around $1,000 off gigantic and recently released state-of-the-art expensive models.
