1. Is Lowe’s open on Memorial Day?

Lowe’s stores are open on Memorial Day during regular business hours, but those times may vary by store. So you may want to call your local store to be certain. But remember that all the Memorial Day sales will be available online for your shopping convenience.

We predict Lowe’s Memorial Day 2024 sale to start May 16, 2024.

Based on what we saw in 2023, we predict Lowe’s Memorial Day event to start May 16. We will keep this post updated as we get closer.


2. Lowe’s Memorial Day Sale 2023 lasted from May 18 to May 31.

Year after year, Lowe’s has consistently started their Memorial Day sale on the third Thursday in May. And the sale always lasts for 14 days. In 2023, Lowe’s again started their Memorial Day Sale on Thursday, May 18, with deals running through May 31.

3. Some of the best Lowe’s Memorial Day deals are on mulch, soil, paint, and flowers.

Lowe’s brings their $2 mulch deal from the April SpringFest sale back again for their Memorial Day sale. But here’s the catch: while the SpringFest sale offered 2 cubic foot bags of mulch for $2, the Memorial Day sale has 1.5-cubic foot bags for $2. So the SpringFest deal was a slightly better value, but Lowe’s Memorial Day sale still has one of the best deals on mulch all year. Lowe’s usually has the $2 mulch deal on either Lowe’s Premium Mulch or Scotts Nature Scapes Mulch.

For Memorial Day 2023, Lowe’s had a 2-for $15 deal on Miracle-Gro Potting Mix, 25-Quart, price drops on an assortment of flowers, and a limited-time mail-in rebate on select paint.


4. Select Lowe’s paint is BOGO 50% off with a mail-in or online rebate.

The mail-in/online paint rebate is a huge highlight for the Memorial Day sale at Lowe’s.

For their 2023 sale, Lowe’s had a mail-in rebate for Buy One Get One 50% off select 1-Gallon cans of exterior paints or 5-Gallon paint buckets. These deals were valid on select HGTV Home by SW Paint, Stainmaster Paint, and Cabot Exterior Stains. So if you have a small home project planned, this is your time to stock up.

You can check out all the current Lowe’s rebates available right now (they have an active list on their website).


5. Look for repeat SpringFest deals during Lowe’s Memorial Day Sale.

Lowe’s likes to bring back some of their bestselling SpringFest deals for Memorial Day. And while some aren’t quite as good (like the mulch deal), others are even better.

For example, Lowe’s dropped a “2 for $12” deal on 2.5-Quart perennial plants for SpringFest 2023. But during their Memorial Day Sale 2023, they had a “2 for $10” deal on 2.5-Quart perennials. This deal means you’ll pay $5 per plant versus $6 during SpringFest.


6. Don’t forget to use your $10 coupon from attending a Lowe’s workshop or event in May.

Lowe’s makes it easy to score savings on your next purchase, which pays off big during a sale like the one for Memorial Day. In May 2023, there were two ways to score $10 off your next $75 Lowe’s purchase (which you could use on Memorial Day sale items):

Lowe’s Mother’s Day Flower Giveaway (took place on May 14, 2023)

All you had to do was register and attend Lowe’s Mother’s Day Flower Giveaway on Saturday, May 14, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Those who attended got a $10 coupon toward their next purchase, as well as a free 1-pint flowering annual. If you got a coupon, make sure to use it during the Memorial Day sale.

Lowe’s Kids’ Workshop (took place on May 20, 2023)

If you registered and attended the Lowe’s Kids’ Workshop on Saturday, May 20, 2023, you scored a free $10 coupon to use at Lowe’s. For this event, kids built a spring pop-up flower box. After the event, Lowe’s emailed attendees a coupon for $10 off their next $75 purchase.



7. Shopping for Memorial Day deals online? Spend at least $45 to get Lowe’s free shipping.

The thing you gotta know about the best Lowe’s sales is that the most valuable deals are almost always in stores. That doesn’t mean you won’t find a few steals on during their Memorial Day event. But for the most part, you’ll want to head to the store to scoop the best savings. This is especially true for flowers, plants, and other Garden Center deals that run during the sale.

Otherwise, Lowe’s gives you free shipping on orders of at least $45 online. So if you want to avoid the extra fees, plan to spend at least that much during the Memorial Day sale.


8. Return your dead plants for up to 365 days, thanks to Lowe’s return policy.

Lowe’s is super generous with plant returns, giving you a full year to return dead plants, perennials, and shrubs — just as long as you hold onto your receipt. Without a receipt, Lowe’s return policy gives you 90 days to return plants.
