​​The Walmart Memorial Day Sale is a great time to stock up on outdoor home and garden items, kids’ clothing, and toys for summer. In all fairness, Memorial Day at Walmart doesn’t exactly live up to the standards of their huge events like Walmart Black Friday and Deals for Days. But if you want to scoop up savings of 40% – 50% on patio furniture and decor, kids’ shorts and tanks, and toys for indoor and outdoor play, Walmart Memorial Day deals can definitely deliver.

Remember, if you shop Walmart deals online, you have to spend at least $35 to get free shipping unless you’re a Walmart Plus member.

Walmart’s Memorial Day Sale is a 9-day event with best-of-the-year discounts on summer essentials.

The 9-day-long Walmart Memorial Day Sale runs the whole week before the holiday. During the sale, shoppers find 40-50% off items like patio furniture, grills, cutlery, and bakeware, perfect for preparing for the summer season. And the discounts went up to 60% on outdoor gear and toys, including water slides, inflatables, toddler water tables, and toys from leading brands. 

KCL predicts the next Walmart Memorial Day Sale will begin Sunday, May 19, 2024.

Walmart hasn’t officially announced the next date for their Memorial Day Sale, but based on what they've done in recent years, we here at KCL predict that it’ll take place between Sunday, May 19, and Memorial Day — Monday, May 27, 2024. Walmart currently has early deals leading up to the Memorial Day sale.

How do we make our prediction?

In 2022 and 2023, Walmart started their early Memorial Day Sale two Sundays before Memorial Day, with early deals online and in stores. (In 2023, Walmart dropped even more deals on the Friday of the holiday weekend.) We expect them to follow a similar pattern in 2024, with another 9-day sale that ends on Memorial Day. 

Here are the past two Memorial Day Sale start dates at Walmart:

  • Sunday, May 21, 2023

  • Sunday, May 22, 2022

Is Walmart open on Memorial Day?

Walmart stores will be 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.

You can shop the Walmart Memorial Day sale online or in stores but the deals may be different.

We found major deals on kids’ clothing clearance during the last Memorial Day sale. Petit Lem baby apparel sets were up to 82% off (and as low as $5 each) when you shopped online.

On the other hand, Walmart stores ran a clearance sale on The Pioneer Woman items, but those discounts weren’t available online. So if you’re truly committed to Memorial Day deal hunting, check for price drops both online and in stores. Either way, we’ll show you where all the best Walmart deals are during the sale so you know where to go.

TIP: Psst — you can always use the Walmart barcode scanner on items in the store to quickly look up online prices and see if you’re getting a good deal.

The Best Walmart Memorial Day deals are usually on home items, outdoor gear, kids’ clothes, and toys.

Last year, the home department got some of the biggest Memorial Day rollbacks across the board, which was perfect timing for getting your home prepped for summer. Many items in categories like patio furniture, grills, cutlery, and bakeware, were 40% – 50% off.

Walmart Kids’ clothing was also a big hit online in 2023, with summer shorts, tees, and swimsuits on sale. Outdoor water slides, inflatables, and toddler tables were also up to 60% off, while other toys from top brands were half-price.

Don’t buy a Walmart TV during the Memorial Day sale unless you can save at least 30%.

Even during Black Friday sales, we recommend aiming to save at least 30% when you buy a TV from Walmart.

If you don’t see discounts this good for Memorial Day, wait for Walmart Black Friday. That’s when you’ll see 40% – 50% off TVs — and plenty of prices under $200.

Remember, you have 30 days to return electronics and 90 days for most other Walmart items.

As you make your way through Memorial Day shopping, keep the Walmart return policy top of mind. You have 90 days to return most Walmart items, like clothes, shoes, jewelry, etc. But you only have 30 days to return electronics like TVs, tablets, hoverboards, and gaming consoles. For mobile phone purchases you make at Walmart, your return window drops to only 14 days.

The good news is you can return Walmart items either to the store or by mail for free. But only Walmart Plus members get the benefit of returns right from home. And staying in your PJs while saving on gas is a pretty big perk.
