Combine a printable coupon with a promo code on top of Memorial Day markdowns and you're looking stacking your savings for more than half off retail prices.

"These coupons you can print out or discount codes you can find online, so you're getting 30 40 percent off combined with a sale that 30 and you're getting 65 percent off that's not bad,"

Dan says research done by his website has shown this holiday weekend to be one of best days to shop of the year. Stores filled with spring merchandise from outdoor furniture to frilly frocks must clear the shelves for summer even though many are tightlipped about upcoming markdowns.

"So this store is saying they're having a sale. Some are saying yes, that's right. The announcement will be tomorrow and Friday to get 5 days of sale, but some stores announce on Memorial Day," he said.

Scan circulars for the scoop on sales. Light apparel especially will be deeply discounted for the whole family.

Shop early. Remember: Popular sizes and items will sell out fast at these rock bottom prices

What won't be rock bottom are seasonal summertime items. Home improvement stores will be filled with sales. Just be aware anything outdoor: flowers, grills, beach towels and chairs may be discounted for Memorial Day, but will get even cheaper later in the summer.

Lastly, if all you want is to kick off your summer with a little sand and sea. Pack up the sunscreen and your iPad. Shop online for your Memorial Day discounts, compare online prices, and the deals are often the equal.

"Because let's face it Memorial Day weekend you'd rather be at the beach that in a store,"
