How to spot the best Memorial Day deals
Memorial Day deals will be spread across multiple websites and if you’re looking to grab a bit of a bargain on tech such as headphones, turntables, Bluetooth speakers, smartphones or anything else, we have a few recommendations. First, find out the RRP of the product you’re after. That way you’ll be able to see at a glance how much money your actually saving.
It’s also worthwhile keeping a list of the products you have your eye on and check back regularly throughout Memorial Day to see if that must-have product has been slashed in price. Deals are likely to change as the day progresses so keep tabs on those products.
As for what makes a good deal, it doesn’t necessarily have to be a cut in price – although that will be the main focus. There could be two for one offers on or added extras included with an item. Streaming sites such as Amazon Music Unlimited or Hulu can sometimes give you three months for the price of one etc.
We’ll be keeping a lookout for products we love here at Louder and we'll bring them to your attention as soon as we find them – so keep us bookmarked too!
