Start looking for Memorial Day grill sales in early May 2024.
If your heart is set on a new grill for summer, it pays to check for deals the whole month of May, not just Memorial Day itself. Some stores will release their Memorial Day deals early, which means you can get the first pick at savings if you’re ready for them.
If the early deals on grills don’t catch your eye, plan to check back at least a week before the long weekend rolls around. Then check daily until the holiday arrives.
Aim to save at least 25% on a new grill during Memorial Day sales in 2024.
If savings are your top priority and the brand doesn’t matter as much, you’ll be able to save way more than 25% on a grill this Memorial Day. But if you’re looking for a top-notch grill that even the pros approve of, you may have to accept a smaller Memorial Day discount.
Sometimes the very best outdoor grills are only 20% – 25% off — max. That doesn’t seem like much, but high-end grills rarely go on sale. If you find a 20% – 25% off deal at Lowe’s or Home Depot, check the grill’s price on Amazon (or do a quick Google Shopping search) to compare the prices.
If you’re okay with buying a lesser-known grill without as many bells and whistles, aim to save at least 40% during Memorial Day grill sales. Just be sure to read customer reviews before you commit to a purchase. Buying a grill that fritzes out by the end of summer isn’t fun for anyone.

You may not see discounts this deep for Memorial Day, but it’s worth checking out what Home Depot has to offer. In the past, we’ve seen up to 26% off Weber, Traeger, Nexgrill, and more grills during the Home Depot Memorial Day Sale.
Pay attention to the grill’s warranty to make sure you’re getting good coverage.
Most grills come with some sort of manufacturer’s warranty, meaning the brand will cover the cost of repairs or the entire grill if things go awry. Some warranties only last one year, while others last up to 10 years or even a lifetime. The thing to know is not all warranties cover the entire grill and some only cover certain parts — like the burners, ignition, cooking grids, or exterior paint.
Read the grill’s warranty and return policy info carefully before you make a Memorial Day purchase you can’t take back.
Here are a few grill warranty examples for top brands:
- Weber Q 1000, 2000, & 3000 Series gas grills have a five-year warranty on their cookbox, lid assembly, burner tubes, cooking grates, and plastic components.
- Nexgrill grills have at least a one-year limited manufacturer’s warranty, but some parts may be covered longer. Batteries and paint loss are not covered.
- Broil-King grills have a lifetime warranty on their cookboxes, while grids and burners have a two to 15-year warranty.
