May shopping deals
The months of May and June are both full of sales thanks to Mother's Day, Father's Day, and Memorial Day. Trae Bodge, a smart shopping expert with Slickdeals, says there are great deals ahead, especially in the gift category. Memorial Day is one of Trae's favorite three-day weekends for shopping. Look for sales in camping and outdoor gear, along with mattresses. Lots of big-ticket items, like appliances, are on sale throughout the month. It's Maytag Month, which means you can get up to $700 back on Maytag appliances, depending on how many you buy.
