5 Memorial Day sales that might have slipped under your radar

Memorial Day weekend is a time for remembrance, family, friends — and some of the best sales of the year. Retailers everywhere are rushing to discount their wares as we head into a glorious holiday weekend. But with so many sales to be had, you’d be surprised about how many great deals get pushed out of the spotlight. With big savings on brand-name appliances, laptop computers, and clothing, there are quite a few lesser-known sales that you likely never would have heard of — until now.

We took a deep dive into the tumultuous world of Memorial Day sales and came back with as many hidden gems as we could carry. If you’re looking for some extra savings on the things you need, the items you want, and the products you just can’t live without, take a look at some of our favorite weekend sales.

With savings on jackets, backpacks, camping stoves, and just about every other type of outdoor gear imaginable, now is still a great time to find some pretty sweet REI gear for less. This sale is only going on until May 28, so you’ll want to act quickly while supplies last.

Super Bowl Food Deal: Get 20% off your next Grubhub order
Ordering food from Grubhub with a smartphone mobile app.

Amazon has a great offer taking place right now if you take advantage of food delivery services. If this is the case, and if you’re an Amazon Prime Member or would like to sign up to be one, you’ll get an entire year of Grubhub+ for free. This is a pretty amazing offer, as a Grubhub+ subscription would regularly cost $10 per month, making this offer worth a savings of $120. Additionally, Prime Members can save 20% on an order of more than $20 from now until February 14. And yes, you can pair it with today's big event, so if you're planning to watch Super Bowl 2023, this can save you some money on the food for the viewing party.

Why you should get a Grubhub+ subscription
The convenience many of the best food delivery service apps offer has become quite prominent over the last few years, and with more and more people working remotely, and with more and more people finding themselves with less time for details on their hands, subscribing to a service like Grubhub+ is worth considering. Most food delivery services work by charging you a delivery fee on top of the cost of your order, but with a Grubhub+ subscription you’re eliminating delivery fees entirely on orders of more than $12 in favor of the monthly subscription cost. This makes it especially appealing for people who have food delivered more often than others, as using it just two or three times per month would make it worth its monthly fee.

Secure Your Value: Lock in the price of your Verizon phone plan for 3 years
Verizon store front displays the 5G network in NYC.

This content was produced in partnership with Verizon.
Prices are steadily climbing for fuel, groceries, products, services, you name it. This means that we will all have to budget more, spend less, and potentially cut out excess wherever we can. You certainly don't want to be seeing the costs of your bills going up, especially if you have budgeted for expected amounts. If you've ever opened or peeked at your electricity or water bills to see meter hikes, you know exactly what we're talking about. Even minimal jumps of $5 can throw your checkbook off balance so if you have the opportunity to lock in prices for good, at a reasonable cost, you should definitely take advantage. It will bring you peace of mind, but it will also make budgeting in these trying times much more manageable. During a period when many companies are elevating prices, Verizon is doing the exact opposite. Allow us to explain.

Verizon's Welcome Unlimited plan offers unlimited talk, text, and data access via its renowned 5G nationwide network. You can jump in for $25 per line, per month, for four lines, and you can bring your phone -- you don't have to buy a new one. Better yet, for new and existing customers, bringing their own devices, Verizon will lock in the price for three years. That means no surprise increases, no hidden charges, and honestly one of the smartest offers we've seen in a long while. Why Verizon, you ask? Don't worry, we'll dig into that, but for now, you can check out that Welcome Unlimited offer below, or keep reading. We have to point out that this is a limited offer and won't be available for long. Also, to celebrate three years of savings, Verizon is giving away 20 pairs of tickets to the SuperBowl for the third year in a row. For a chance to win, you can head to now or enter online - but do it soon because this sweepstakes ends February 15.
