At Amazon, the Memorial Day 2016 sale is as usual an afterthought. The retailer is taking this sale not seriously and there are only a few deals featured in Clothing, Shoes & Jewelry. The Amazon Prime Day 2016 will be the next huge sales day on Amazon. The retailer created a sales day out of thin air last year for the first time that matched deals offered on Black Friday. The hottest deals in last year's Prime Day included a $75 32-inch LED TV, $79 32-inch LED TV and a $115 40-inch LED HDTV Prime Day deal.
These hot deals have been extremely hard to get like on Black Friday and Amazon got criticized for that. If Amazon will have more supply of the hottest Prime Day 2016 deals remains to be seen. Prime Day 2016 is likely again on July 15.
Update: Amazon Prime Day 2016 is on July 12. The Amazon Prime Day 2016 countdown sale begins already on July 5.
Fashion stores like Aeropostale are a great place to shop on Memorial Day. Like on Black Friday, fashion brands tend to keep things simple and offer site wide discounts.
