Hey, all! Deals editor Louis here navigating our Memorial Day sales live blog for the next few hours. I’m based in sunny NYC where it’s the perfect day for a backyard….pizza party. Growing up in NYC, I actually never had a backyard, but if I did — I would absolutely get one of these ovens. Not only are they in our best pizza ovens guide, but they’re all 20% off. (These ovens rarely go on sale). If you’re wondering which one to pick — the Ooni Frya 12 for $279 (opens in new tab) is an epic deal. You can read about it in our Ooni Frya 12 review, but it’s basically one of the best purchases our Deputy Editor Mike Prospero has made. (By comparison, Best Buy has it on sale for $292 (opens in new tab), which isn’t the full 20% off you’ll get at Backcountry).

For a limited time, the Apple Watch 7 is just $329 at Amazon (opens in new tab). The 41mm model with GPS normally costs $399, so you’ll save $70 thanks to this deal. A saving of this size easily qualifies as one of the best Apple Watch deals we’ve seen for the Series 7.
We’re seriously big fans of this wearable, we even rank it as the best smartwatch you can buy. That’s because the Apple Watch 7 offers all the excellent fitness tracking features you’d expect from an Apple Watch as well as new capabilities. These include a larger display, brighter screen and faster charging. It all adds up to Apple’s most complete wearable to date.

Here’s another epic Memorial Day laptop deal worth paying attention to. Amazon has slashed the price of various Microsoft Surface Go Laptops, although you may have to be flexible about color if you want to get the best discount.
Right now, the top-tier Surface Laptop Go (8GB RAM/256GB) is just $639 at Amazon (opens in new tab), down from $899. But you can only score this saving if you buy it in Platinum. It’ll be $649 in Sandstone or $674 in Ice Blue. Even if you’re not fully sold on the Platinum colorway, $639 is the lowest price this Surface Laptop Go configuration has ever dropped to, so it’s well worth considering.
This is an excellent deal on a lightweight and capable Windows device. in our Microsoft Surface Laptop Go review, we praised its premium design, great keyboard, its generous selection of ports. The battery life, heat output and display brightness did disappoint us a little, but overall the Laptop Go is an attractive and very portable device.

Our fitness editor has tested an awful lot of running shoes and highly recommends the Nike Pegasus 38. So, if you’ve been waiting for a Memorial Day sale to invest in a new pair of running shoes, then your patience has paid off.
Nike is currently offering the Nike Pegasus 38 for $64 (opens in new tab). That’s a big saving compared to the shoes’ regular $120 retail price. You’ll need to use coupon code SAVE20 at check out in order to get the full discount.
The Pegasus 38 is a brilliant all-around shoe — suitable for long, easy training runs, but with enough snap to pick up the pace should you need it. This shoe is comfortably one of the best Nike running shoes you can buy. It’s also ideal for both experienced runners and newcomers alike, so whatever your level of running ability you won’t want to miss this deal.

No annual sales event is complete without an AirPods Pro discount, and Memorial Day isn’t disappointing on that front.
Amazon currently has the Apple AirPods Pro on sale for $179 (opens in new tab). That’s a saving of $69 compared to its standard retail price of $249. This is one of the lowest prices we’ve seen for the premium earbuds outside of Black Friday and Prime Day.
We rank the AirPods Pro as one of the best wireless earbuds you can buy. Not only does it sport an eye-catching design, but it also offers seriously good active noise cancellation and a snug-in-ear fit. The five-hour battery life is a little disappointing but the supplied wireless charging case adds up to 24 hours of juice to keep you listening through the day.

You won’t find a Memorial Day deal that costs less than this one because right now at Best Buy you can get six months of Apple Music for absolutely nothing. Yup, that’s right, six months of Apple Music for free (opens in new tab)at Best Buy. No purchase required or strings attached.
There is one small condition: New subscribers only. But if you’ve never tried Apple Music before then this deal is the perfect opportunity to give Spotify’s biggest rival a chance. Apple’s music streaming service gives you access to 70 million ad-free songs, exclusive original content and the ability to download/play music offline.

If you’re on the hunt for a Memorial Day laptop deal at the lowest possible price, then this offer on an Asus Chromebook could be exactly what you’ve been looking for.
Right now, you can get an Asus 11.6-inch Chromebook for $99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab). That’s a massive $120 off its regular retail price of $219. If this deal sells out, Walmart is offering an HP 11.6-inch Chromebook for $98 (opens in new tab), which is $127 off.
As you’d expect for the price, this Asus Chromebook isn’t a powerhouse and doesn’t quite stack up against some of the best Chromebooks currently available. However, for a $99 machine, it’s surprisingly capable and is perfectly suited for at-home learning or performing basic work tasks.

8K TVs are currently grabbing a lot of headlines in the tech world, but to be completely honest most consumers don’t need one simply because there isn’t much easily-accessible 8K content out there just yet.
For this reason, we don’t typically recommend 8K TVs. However, this Best Buy Memorial Day deal is an exception as a 65-inch LG 8K TV for $999 (opens in new tab) is too good of a deal to pass up. This is the least expensive 8K TV we’ve ever seen, usually, we see deals starting at around $1,799. It’s also a massive $2,000 off its regular price of $2,999.
This 2020 model features LG’s a9 Gen 1 AI 8K CPU, 120Hz refresh rate, built-in Google Assistant/Amazon Alexa, Dolby Vision/HDR10/HLG support, and a low-latency mode for console gaming.

During any major retail sales event, TV deals are always in high demand. Memorial Day is no different and we’re currently seeing retailers compete to offer the lowest possible price on some very big televisions.
Walmart is currently the front runner, and for a limited time, the national retailer is offering this TCL 75” 4-Series 4K TV for $678 (opens in new tab). That’s a massive $621 off its regular retail price of $1,299. This is easily one of the best Memorial Day TV sales we’ve seen so far. This model delivers big and sharp ultra-HD pictures complete with support for high dynamic range (HDR), 4K upscaling and a smooth 120Hz refresh rate.

Memorial Day sales are a great time to save big on some essentials. Take the humble mattress for example. Everybody deserves a luxurious sleeping surface, but the best mattress models from premium brands like Nectar can be very pricey.
Thankfully, as part of its massive Memorial Day sale, Nectar has dropped its award-winning memory foam mattress to just $399 (opens in new tab), that’s a sizeable discount from its usual price of $798. All mattress sizes have been reduced in this sitewide sale including queen which is just $799 (was $1,298). Even better, you’ll get a $399 bedding bundle for free with any purchase.
The Editor’s Choice mattress offers tremendous value for the money and holds a spot in our best mattress guide. In our review we found that it’s very comfortable (thanks to its five layers of memory foam) and it offers excellent pressure relief around your shoulders, hips, and back. You’ll sleep even better knowing you got a quality mattress at such a steep discount.
Good Morning! Welcome to the Tom’s Guide Memorial Day sales live bog for 2022. Here we’ll be sharing all the best Memorial Day sales and deals throughout the entire day, and maybe even a little beyond that as well.
This year the bar for deciding which deals we recommend has been raised considerably. The cost of living continues to increase for most people, so getting the biggest savings possible has never been more important. So, let’s start with a promotion on the always popular iPhone 13.
Traditionally buying the latest iPhone is an expensive endeavor, but for Memorial Day, Best Buy is taking up to $800 off the iPhone 13 (opens in new tab) with trade-in. Verizon and AT&T customers get up to $800 off, whereas T-Mobile customers get up to $425 off. Even better this iPhone 13 deal is valid on all models of Apple’s flagship smartphone.
