Memorial Day Freebies and Sales


Memorial Day Weekend is only a few hours away. Soon the air will be filled with the scent of a million barbecues turning on for the first time in months. If you haven’t already packed your weekend with activities, we have a few ideas for you. Here is our roundup of some of the best freebies and bargains available this weekend.


It wouldn’t be a holiday without free breakfast. Ikea is offering one free breakfast and small coffee per customer from Saturday to Monday. The deal is good at most locations. Check out Ikea’s Web site to find one near you.


Hundreds of museums across the country will be offering free admission to military members and their families starting this Memorial Day as a small sign of appreciation for their service. The deal will run through the entire summer.


Blockbuster is currently offering a free movie at any of their express kiosks if you use the coupon code GL14A. So if it gets too hot this weekend, stay in for a night and pop in a movie. The deal is good through June 30. (Thanks to Wallet Pop for the tip!)

Whole Foods

Whole Foods is  offering a promotion where customers can ‘Fill the Grill’ for eight people for just $26. When you buy 4.5 pounds of burgers and 2 pounds of chicken breast, you get several sides for free including a pound of vegetable macaroni salad, eight Bakehouse buttermilk buns and a whole seedless watermelon.

Home Depot

This weekend, Home Depot is offering $5 off gallon cans of paint and $20 off 5-gallon pails. On top of that, there is also a 10% discount on any single purchase for members of the military on Memorial Day. It’s a long weekend, why not take some time to make some home improvements?


Once again, Macy’s is having a huge Memorial Day sale where many items are as much as 50% off in stores and online. And if you use the promo code KICKOFF when checking out, you can get free shipping on all purchases $99 and up.

Omni Hotels

If you haven’t booked a vacation yet but are still pining to get away, consider staying at one of the dozens of Omni hotels around the country. The hotel chain is offering 10% off one-night stays, 20% off two-night stays and 30% off three-night stays for this weekend only.
