BUFFALO, NY - First off and most importantly, thank you to the heroes who sacrified for all of us and continue to be the reason we have freedom and are able to live in this amazing country.
It's a great holiday weekend to save depending on where you shop. And on a weekend where you'd expect any major store to be on board (Walmart... Target.... what's your deal?), that's not the case.
So, I hit up the stores to find you the most savings I can. This is generally a weekend where the savings are on clothes, not electronics.Shopping online gives you a chance to save without having to drive to a mall, fight for a parking spot, and without jeopardizing that integral time with your family this long weekend.
As usual, everything in this article is my opinion as a bargain hunter and extremely cheap individual. We receive no financial compensation and I NEVER talk to stores directly or follow-up on PR Requests.
1. Kohl's: Nicely done. Discounts are store-wide. Pay close attention to shoes, swim apparel and patio. $10 Kohl's Cash for every $50 spent through May 30th. Can be redeemed in store and online May 31st through June 12th. CLICK HERE.
