If you've got a Costco card, you're in for a treat around Memorial Day. Their sale kicks off in mid-May and lasts for almost four weeks, ending around early to mid-June. We predict the next event will roll around by May 16, 2024, with an end date around June 8.
Now, if you're wondering how this sale stacks up to Costco's other holiday sales, it's pretty up there. You can expect savings on appliances, backyard essentials like furniture and grills, plus deals on food and BBQ supplies.
While Costco is not open on Memorial Day itself, their special Costco deals for Memorial Day will be available to shop online during the entire sale. They even offer pre-Memorial Day deals exclusively on Costco.com, like they do for other seasonal events like Costco Halloween and Costco Christmas.

Best Memorial Day Sales at Costco
Look for Costco deals on appliances, outdoor furniture, and food during the multi-week Memorial Day sale.
Here are some of the hottest categories where you’ll find some amazing deals.
Mattresses and Bedding
In 2023, big-ticket items like queen-size platform beds and foam mattresses were on sale at Costco during the Memorial Day savings event. Expect to save around 20% on mattresses and bedding.
During the 2023 sale, we saw deals like these:
$400 off a queen-size memory foam mattress
$140 off on a Sealy Posturepedic hybrid mattress
$20 off a queen-size sheet set from Jennifer Adams Home
Need a new fridge, dishwasher, or washing machine? The Costco Memorial Day Sale offers great discounts on high-quality appliances from Whirlpool, Samsung, GE, and LG. You should shop online for the best deals on these items.
In 2023, you could stack your savings with a "Spend $2,000, Get $300" promotion and $100 off the purchase of two items from Costco Direct.
KCL TIP: If you see "Costco Direct" on an item listed on Costco.com, it just means the product will be shipped from a Costco distribution center instead of a Costco warehouse. This helps them speed up the delivery process, especially for large items.
With summer right around the corner, it's a great time to claim some discounts on outdoor furniture, grills, and accessories.
During last year's Memorial Day sale, you could find savings like 25% off a 35-foot solar string light set (on sale for $29.99, reg. $39.99) and 20% off a folding camping chair (on sale for $39.99, reg. $49.99).
Food & BBQ Supplies
To stock up for a summer BBQ, wait until the Costco Memorial Day deals hit in mid-May.
In 2023, we saw Instant Savings food deals that got you savings like 33% off Heinz Picnic Packs (complete with ketchup, relish, and mustard), 28% off LaCroix sparkling water, up to 26% off hot dogs, and 21% off paper plates.
Tips for Shopping the Costco Memorial Day Sale
To make the most of your Costco Memorial Day shopping experience, keep these tips in mind:
1. Shop online, too.
While Costco’s physical warehouse locations offer excellent deals, you can often find exclusive online-only discounts at Costco.com during the Costco Memorial Day Sale. Many of these items ship for free.
2. Use Costco's price adjustment policy.
With the Costco Price Adjustment Policy, if you purchase an item from Costco and it goes on sale within 30 days, you can request a price adjustment to refund you the difference. This policy can help you save even more, no matter when you shop (before or after a sale).
3. Consider a membership.
Although Costco is a membership-based warehouse club, you can still shop during the Memorial Day Sale without a membership. However, as a non-member, you’ll pay a 5% surcharge on every purchase. Check out our Costco membership guide for help choosing the right level of membership.
