For most of us Memorial Day signals the unofficial start of summer. With pools opening and barbecue smoke filling the air, it’s a long-awaited opportunity to kick back and enjoy the sunshine with friends and family. It’s also an excellent opportunity to get great deals from top retailers and restaurants. In this list you’ll find 30 different coupons, discounts and freebies to take advantage of over the holiday weekend.
Though there’s no shortage of fun activities and bargains to be had over the weekend, it’s also important to remember the true spirit of the holiday and the sacrifices military men and women have made for our country. At Coupon Sherpa we would like to extend our gratitude for your service.
