The Best May Deals and Sales for Mother's Day, Memorial Day and more

May is a month that many of us look forward to. School is coming to a close. The weather is beautiful just about everywhere in the U.S. And it's almost wedding season. Year after year, retailers offer deals on athletic apparel and footwear to entice us to get out and get fit. We celebrate Pet Week with our furry friends, and we have Mother's Day and Memorial Day sales; two reliable opportunities to save big.

National Pet Week (May 3–9)

National Pet Week was created almost four decades ago by the American Veterinary Medical Association to both celebrate our animal companions and to share best practices for responsible pet care. During this week, retailers get in the game with discounts on all sorts of pet products, from CBD products to pet apparel.
