25 Memorial Day 2016 sales, deals and freebies

Each year on the last Monday in May, Americans honor fallen soldiers. Memorial Day dates back to the 19th century but its exact origin isn’t known because at least 25 locations claim to be the holiday’s birthplace. What we do know, though, is that Memorial Day is a major holiday that often involves plenty of traveling — AAA projected that more than 38 million Americans will travel this Memorial Day weekend — and shopping.

“Memorial Day is one of the biggest shopping weekends of the year, with everything from mattresses to swimwear to travel services seeing discounts of 15 to 50 percent,” said Kendal Perez, savings expert for Coupon Sherpa.
