First and foremost, Memorial Day is all about remembering the brave men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Of course, the national holiday also has developed a second identity for shopping enthusiasts as retailers use the three-day weekend to roll out their biggest deals of the season. Here at Travel + Leisure, we are most interested in Memorial Day markdowns on travel gear, and this year, there is no shortage of sales to get excited about.
In other words, if you’re in the market for new luggage, or you simply want to seize the opportunity to invest in a splurge-worthy travel bag, you’re in luck. Major retailers like Amazon and Nordstrom beefed up their sales sections with deals up to 68 percent off, as did top luggage brands like Monos, Calpak, Tumi, and Samsonite, which are each having their own specials.
The only downside of having so many deals at your fingertips is it would take days to scroll through them all. To save you precious time (that could be spent having fun with friends and family), we’ve done all the heavy bargain-hunting lifting for you. In fact, we may have even done some shopping in the name of research. After all, who can pass up deals like nearly 70 percent off this Kenneth Cole Reaction 20-Inch Hardside Carry-On Suitcase, and saving more than $150 on Travelpro’s Platinum Elite First Class Luggage Set?
Just remember that supplies are limited, so it’s best to shop before heading out the door to enjoy the long holiday weekend. Keep scrolling to shop the 91 best Memorial Day luggage deals that will elevate your travel game this summer season.
