By Lou Carlozo, dealnews contributor As the holiday that kicks off summer, Memorial Day calls to mind more than just an increased volume of highway traffic. Memorial Day sales too are heating up, with super-strong deals in home goods and clothing. As such, we've rounded up five great Memorial Day sales from the likes of Home Depot, Aéropostale, Backcountry, and more. Home Depot Memorial Day Sale Price: From 99 cents Shipping: In-store pickup Expires: May 29 Is It Worth It?: This Hampton Bay Marwood Accent Patio Table (pictured) is the perfect 20" x 20" patio side table, and priced handsomely at $34.30. That's $14.50 below its retail value and a highlight in one of the best sales we've seen from Home Depot this year. other notable deals include the Masterbuilt 30" Electric Smoker for $264, and two RST Outdoor Tikka Club Patio Chairs for $989.10. Look here for more of Home Depot's Memorial Day Sale. Aéropostale Memorial Day Sale Discount: From 50% to 85% off Shipping: From $7 s&h Is It Worth It?: Head to Aero this Memorial Day and take advantage of the best sitewide sale we've seen from Aéropostale this year: 50% to 85% off sitewide. Note that although Aéropostale advertises only 50% off, we found greater discounts within. Some items, including fragrances, are excluded. Backcountry Memorial Day Sale Discount: Up to 70% off Shipping: From $7 s&h or free shipping on orders over $50 Is It Worth It?: Like Aero's promotion, the Backcountry Memorial Day Sale banner says items are discounted up to 50% off, but we found higher discounts, though none top its up to 95% off sale from two days ago. However, a part of its up to 70% off Memorial Day Sale, these Mountain Hardwear Women's Ramesa V2 Shorts are a mere $38.46. Available in Bluegrass (pictured), Khaki, or Red Canyon, they're made from water-resistant, breathable twill and feature utility pockets, mesh panels, UPF 50 sun protection, and more. Cabela's Memorial Day Sale Discount: From 20% to 60% off Shipping: From $5.95 s&h or $5 s&h via coupon code "53FLAT" on orders over $99 Expires: May 27 Is It Worth It?: Sales on apparel and outdoor gear may be common this time of year, but this promotion from Cabela's is one of the best sales we've seen on such a large collection of items. Of the lot, we like the Cabela's Deluxe Chest/Hip Pack (pictured), which though it's backordered can still be purchased for $24.99. It features a front fold-down workstation, a main compartment that holds several fly boxes, adjustable waistbelt with breathable mesh, and more. Be sure to check out all the items in the Cabela's Memorial Day Sale. Walmart Memorial Day Sale Price: From $3.88 Shipping: From 97 cents s&h, Site-to-Store pickup, or free shipping on most orders over $45 Is It Worth It?: A Walmart sale without great deals is like a Memorial Day barbecue without the BBQ sauce. So let's pour it on thick with the savings, as this ranks among the best general sales we've seen from Walmart in recent weeks. You can find more than 350 items during the Memorial Day Sale, in categories such as electronics, outdoor recreation items, patio furniture, apparel, and more.
