The Lowe’s Memorial Day sale is a great opportunity to grab a new grill, stock up on soil and mulch, and get ready to kick off summer — but it won’t do you much good if you don’t know which prices make for a true deal.

With that in mind, I looked into three years of Lowe’s Memorial Day sales data, and the history has a lot to teach us when we’re looking to score the best deals.

  • If you can’t wait for the sale, check out the best Lowe’s coupons and deals available now.
  • Download the KCL app and “favorite” Lowe’s, which means you won’t even have to look for the best deals — we’ll just send them straight to your phone.

The information below is everything you need to know to get the most out of the Memorial Day sale at Lowe’s — starting with when we’re expecting to see the next sale.

 

1. Expect Lowe’s Memorial Day 2022 sale to start on May 19.

In each year going back to 2019, Lowe’s has kicked off their Memorial Day sale two Thursdays before Memorial Day. That makes sense when you consider that Thursdays are when Lowe’s always kicks off new weekly sales.

In 2022, that date will be May 19 — but expect the ad to drop the day before.

 

2. Lowe’s Memorial Day sale will run for two weeks.

Lowe’s Memorial Day sale doesn’t stop on Memorial Day. Since 2019, Lowe’s has kept the sale running through the following Wednesday. In 2022, that means the Memorial Day sale will run from May 19 – June 1.

 

3. Use Lowe’s price matching to get competitors’ lower prices during Memorial Day 2022.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when you’re shopping the Lowe’s Memorial Day sale:

  • Use Lowe’s price matching to get competitors’ lower prices.
  • Thanks to Lowe’s plant return policy, you’ve got a year to return dead plants, perennials, and shrubs.
  • Active duty and retired veterans get 10% off with the Lowe’s military discount.

 

4. Lowe’s grill sale during Memorial Day is the best of the year at 33% off regular price.

These 5-burner performance Char-Broil gas grills (reg. $279 in 2021) were available for $188 during Lowe’s 2021 Memorial Day sale. That’s the best deal on grills we saw all year long.
