If you're in the market to upgrade, replace, or expand your appliances and home goods, you may be able to find what you're looking for at a discount.

Even with Memorial Day in the rearview mirror, plenty of retailers are running sales through the end of the month. This means there are lots of ways to save on CR-tested grillsmattressesvacuums, and large appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines

Keep in mind that online retailers are still experiencing extremely high demand, so delivery may take longer than usual.

Air Conditioners

Amana Window-Mount Air Conditioner

    This 10,000-Btu air conditioner is $50 off at AppliancesConnection right now. We haven't seen it available at other retailers. It can cool large rooms (think 650 square feet) effortlessly and even lets you know when your filter needs to be cleaned. However, it was on the noisier side when we tested it.

    Whirlpool Window-Mount Air Conditioner

      If you don’t mind a little extra noise, this reasonably priced, 6,000-Btu window air conditioner from Whirlpool is a great option for smaller rooms. Right now, you can get it delivered from Staples and for a lower-than-usual price. It's $10 less than we've seen it sell for at other retailers, and Staples is the only place you can find it right now.

      Black+Decker Personal Blender

        Want a blender but don't need or have room for a big one? This Black+Decker model carries a reasonably low price on a normal day, and it's an additional $10 off right now. Its test results were impressive, and it even has an attachment for a full-sized blender if you ever need to make a bigger recipe.

        Ninja Foodi Cold & Hot Blender

          If you want a blender for making icy drinks that won't break the bank, this could be a good option, especially at $40 less than you'll typically find it. It did a decent job with puréeing as well but is not one of the best for that particular function.

          Bosch 300 Series Dishwasher

            This 24-inch Bosch dishwasher usually costs anywhere from $850 to $1,000, but it's on sale right now for a great price. It did well in all of CR's tests, but where it really shined was in our tests for drying and noise, making it one of the top models you can get.

            Bosch Ascenta Dishwasher

              The combination of superior performance and features that more commonly appear on pricier washers make this entry-level Bosch a great value, especially because it's usually $700. It has a 95-minute cycle for a normal wash, among the shortest of any washer that CR tests. According to data from CR member surveys, owners give Bosch dishwashers top marks for reliability and satisfaction.

              Whirlpool Dishwasher

                This dishwasher may be a great option if you’re shopping on a budget, especially now that it’s more than $60 off. Though we haven’t tested this model, we expect it to perform comparably to the similar Whirlpool WDF540PADM dishwasher. (The sale model does not have a Sensor cycle, which automatically picks the correct wash and dry cycles for each load, depending on factors such as the size of the load and how dirty the dishes are.) The model we tested did a killer job at both washing and drying, and has one of the shortest cycles of all the dishwashers we’ve tested.


                Broil King Kamado Grill

                  Kamado grills are not for the novice griller, but if you’re ready to step up your game, this Broil King grill, usually $900, is almost $100 off at Amazon and Lowe’s. CR's testers found it very easy to use and clean but noted that the built-in temperature gauge stopped working during testing. 


                  CR’s test results: Broil King Keg 911470 kamado grill

                  Dyna-Glo Gas Grill

                    This Dyna-Glo is a strong performer, making it a great option for an entry-level grill. It has two main burners and a side burner for warming, say, barbecue sauce or sides like baked beans. At $50 off its regular price, we think it's the perfect model to help you get started grilling. 


                    CR's test results: Dyna-Glo DGF350CSP-D

                    Landmann Charcoal Grill

                      This charcoal grill typically sells for more than $300, but Wayfair is offering a discount of almost 50 percent right now. It scored well when it came to cooking food evenly and indirectly, and we found that it's convenient to use and easy to clean.


                      CR’s test results: Landmann Vista 560200 grill

                      Monument Grills Gas Grill

                        Even without the sale, this grill offers a lot of bang for your buck, including features like integrated LED lighting, an infrared searing burner, and a side burner. It performs admirably in our tests, and for $50 or more off the regular price, we think it's a stellar deal. 


                        CR's test results: Monument Grills 13892

                        Nexgrill Gas Grill

                          Even without a sale, you'd be hard-pressed to find more grill for the money than you get with this Nexgrill. In addition to solid performance in our tests, this model has six burners, a built-in thermometer, and even a side burner for heating sauce or sides while you grill. 


                          CR's test results: Nexgrill 720-0898

                          Weber Gas Grill

                            It's rare to find any Weber on sale, particularly at the start of the season. This Genesis, which performs admirably in our testing, is being offered for $50 off its regular price. It's light on features compared with more premium Genesis models, but it still has a closed cart and an electronic ignition. And it's compatible with Weber's iGrill 3, a thermometer (sold separately) and app that allow you to monitor the temperature of your grill and food even if you step away for a moment.

                            Avocado Green Mattress (Queen)

                              Avocado makes some top-notch mattresses, and this is a great chance to save on the company’s flagship Avocado Green. Now through June 1, with the code WEHONOR200, you’ll save $200 on any Avocado mattress.


                              We tested the queen-size Green and found that it supports a wide range of side- and back-sleeper body types. On our firmness scale, the Avocado Green is the firmest of all our top-scoring innerspring mattresses. (We also tested the Green Pillowtop model and found it to have similar results overall, though it is not as firm.)


                              You can also save $150 on a bed frame with the code BED150. This code will stack with WEHONOR200 above, if you’re in need of both a mattress and a frame.


                              Verified doctors, nurses, EMTs, law enforcement employees, firefighters, military members, and educators can save an additional $50.

                              Casper Hybrid Mattress (Queen)

                                Right now, you can get the Casper Hybrid for $129 off its regular price on Amazon. In our tests, the Casper, an innerspring mattress that also has several layers of foam, offers a good night’s rest for all the sleeper sizes, whether they sleep on their back or side. It also rates highly in our stabilization tests, meaning you should barely feel your partner if he or she tends to shift around at night. You can find the 2019 version we tested on sale at Amazon. CR subscribers say Casper mattresses are a great value, and more than half of those surveyed would buy another.

                                Tuft & Needle Mattress (Queen)

                                  There’s a sale at Tuft & Needle, which is offering up to 30 percent savings on all the brand’s mattresses, including the original, the Mint, and the Hybrid, as well as accessories such as sheets and mattress protectors. Amazon also has a sale on the queen-size original for about $30 less than T&N’s discounted price. CR’s tests show that Tuft & Needle makes decent mattresses all-around. But the original may be softer than advertised, so be sure to read up on each model before you buy.

                                  Frigidaire Single-Oven Slide-In Electric Smoothtop Range

                                    You’ll almost never find a slide-in range for less than $800, but this Frigidaire fits the bill; it’s on sale for more than $400 off the regular price. It has chunky, pro-style knobs, a cooktop warming element, and a storage drawer beneath the oven cavity. One thing you’ll give up is convection, which you won’t find at this price in a slide-in.

                                    LG Double Oven Gas Range

                                      If you want every last bell and whistle, this LG is the gas range to get. You get two ovens, both with convection, five surface burners, a built-in griddle, integrated WiFi, and even onboard diagnostics to help simplify repairs. And you can get this range for about $350 less than its regular price at Appliances Connection.

                                      Samsung Single-Oven Gas Range

                                        This Samsung is a feature-packed model with solid performance, making it one of the better deals we’ve seen for this holiday weekend. It has five burners, including an integrated griddle on the cooktop, as well as a convection oven and storage drawer. At $450 off its regular price, it’s a good deal, though we have seen this model frequently discounted, usually to around the price you’ll pay this Memorial Day.

                                        Frigidaire Top-Freezer Refrigerator

                                          This 30-inch-wide Frigidaire top-freezer is a good choice if you’re short on space. And at about $100 less than usual, it’s also a good deal. Both the refrigerator and freezer compartments hit their ideal temperatures and maintain them without warm and cool spots. The Frigidaire does all that while saving energy, too. That said, this fridge is a bit noisy, and our testers weren’t impressed with the controls or the performance of the icemaker.

                                          GE Side-by-Side Refrigerator

                                            This 36-inch GE side-by-side offers powerful performance and the most essential features. Our testers give it high marks for its ability to regulate temperature and find it very easy to use. It doesn’t have tons of features, but it covers all the basics, including a stainless steel finish, a through-the-door water/ice dispenser, a built-in water filter, and digital controls that show actual internal temperature.

                                            Insignia Top-Freezer Refrigerator

                                              This Insignia top-freezer offers good performance at an incredibly affordable sale price. If you want to save even more money, the white version of this fridge—the Insignia NS-RTM18WH7—is on sale for $20 less. This stainless steel model comes with an icemaker, spillproof shelving, and digital controls. In our tests, it does a terrific job mitigating warm and cold spots in the fridge and freezer cavities, but it’s a bit noisier than competing models. For the money, though, this fridge offers a lot of value for cost-conscious shoppers.

                                              Dyson Ball Animal 2 Upright Vacuum

                                                You can find this capable vacuum marked down at many retailers. The 17-pound Dyson Ball Animal 2 earns impressive scores for carpet cleaning. It aces our bare-floor and pet-hair tests, too. Emissions are clean, so this vacuum won’t spew debris back into the room (although emptying the bin can stir up some dust). It comes with attachments that help you get into tight spaces.

                                                Hoover Stick Vacuum

                                                  The Hoover Onepwr Blade Max BH53350 is part of Hoover’s cleaning system, which offers several floor-cleaning products that use interchangeable batteries. Its strengths include cleaning bare floors, removing pet hair, and zipping along the edges of a room leaving nothing behind. It’s not too shabby on cleaning carpet, either. It’s fairly quiet, although some top-rated models are even quieter. And its emissions are clean.

                                                  iRobot Roomba e5 Robotic Vacuum

                                                    The high-scoring Roomba e5 usually costs $350 to $400, so at $300 it’s a great deal. This Roomba isn’t as “smart” as the top-of-the-line iRobot Roomba i7+, but it performs well cleaning carpet and bare floors. The e5 is also a champ at navigating a room and returning to its base for recharging. But if you prefer a model with a remote, you’ll have to look elsewhere.

                                                    Shark Ion Stick Vacuum

                                                      This 8.8-pound Shark tackles pet hair and bare floors with ease but struggles on carpet, so it might not be the best option if you have a lot of rugs in your home. It comes with two batteries, so technically you’re getting twice the cleaning time—in our tests it ran for 24 minutes on one battery charge.


                                                      CR’s test results: Shark Ion F80 Cord-Free MultiFlex IF281

                                                      Shark Navigator Upright Vacuum (Target Exclusive)

                                                        A Target exclusive, the Shark Navigator Powered Lift-Away NV586 has a 26-foot cord and weighs about 16 pounds. It receives superb scores in both our pet-hair and bare-floors tests, though it doesn’t fare as well on carpet. Our testers found that this vacuum handles well, but it’s noisier than other upright vacuums.

                                                        GE Agitator Top-Loader

                                                          You won’t find many washers that normally sell for around $500 that are worth considering, but this is in that price range and deserves a look. Cleaning is typical for an agitator, meaning it can handle normal loads but will have a tougher time with heavy stains (pretreating them will help). But where it stands out is speed, taking just 35 minutes to do a load—half the time of some other tested models. Claimed capacity is 4.5 cubic feet.

                                                          LG Front-Load Washing Machine

                                                            This LG front-loader is a miser at conserving both energy and water. Add that to what you’re saving on the purchase price and this deal is hard to pass up. It operates quietly and vibrations are low, so if your washer is located near your living areas, it won’t bother you when it’s running. One drawback is that it isn’t the most gentle on fabrics, earning subpar marks on that test.
