Memorial Day is May 27th, a day of remembrance in the US. Though, like most holidays on the calendar, it’s also a day when a load of retailers lower prices, making it a good opportunity to tick a few boxes off of your wishlist (or someone else’s). And, aside from Amazon Prime Day 2019, which is expected to happen in mid-July, this might be your best chance to save on some tech products until Labor Day or Black Friday comes around later in the year.
Most of these sales have different start and end times, so we’ll be updating this post with new deals as they begin, crossing out inactive deals along the way.
LAPTOPS AND TABLETS
- Acer is offering a 20 percent discount on everything in its store, including desktops, gaming monitors, laptops, and more. Enter the code ACER20 at checkout to redeem the deal. (Chromebooks and Predator laptops are excluded from the offer.)
- Apple’s latest MacBook Air with 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM is $949.99 (usually $1,199) at Best Buy. This is hovering around the best price yet, though Google Express recently went $20 cheaper. Amazon is now matching Best Buy’s price, if you’d rather shop there.
- For a faster processor, you’ll want to check out the 13-inch MacBook Pro at Best Buy, which is $999.99. It’s $300 off of its usual price.
- The sixth-generation of Apple’s iPad with 128GB of storage costs $329.99 at Best Buy. Amazon is honoring this price, as well.
- The latest iPad Pro tablets are up to $200 off at Best Buy. If you’re leaning toward the 11-inch tablet, it starts at $674.99 (usually $799.99), and the 12.9-inch version starts at $849.99.
- Sony PlayStation 4 Pro is $314.10 (usually $399.99, expires May 23rd). This console is rarely discounted, let alone marked down by almost $100.
- The Nintendo Switch isn’t discounted at Walmart, but buying one will get you a free $25 gift card for a limited time.
- The Xbox One X with 1TB of storage with Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds included is $299.70. This console is regularly priced at $499, so this $200 discount is staggering.
- The Xbox One S with 1TB of storage is $179.99. This bundle includes Minecraft, and the best previous price was $199.99 during Black Friday.
- TCL 6-series 65-inch 4K HDR television with Roku TV software is $699.99 at Amazon. You’ll find it for the same price at Best Buy, though its model differs slightly from what you’d get anywhere else; its included IR remote requires line-of-sight with the TV, an awkward requirement for a modern TV. And, this model isn’t compatible with the superior Wi-Fi-connected remote.
- The 65-inch LG B8 OLED 4K HDR TV is $1,899.99 at Amazon. This is the lowest price yet, according to pricing data from CamelCamelCamel.

- Sony’s 1000X M3 wireless over-ear headphones are $289 at Drop. Usually $349, these excellent noise canceling headphones are beginning to fall in price. Drop’s previous deal took them down to $279, but this is still the best price on the internet.
- The Microsoft Surface Headphones are $100 off of their usual price at Microsoft Store. This discount brings the price for these over-ear headphones with noise canceling down to $249.
- Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS, 38mm) is down to $199.99 at Amazon and Walmart. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen it hit this price, but it hasn’t yet gone any lower. If the 42mm sizing is a better fit, it’s $229.99 at Walmart and Amazon.
- The Apple Watch Series 4 in every color and size is $50 off at Best Buy. This puts GPS models as low as $349, and watches that support GPS and LTE at $449. Amazon is now matching Best Buy’s prices.
