I’m an Amazon-Obsessed Shopping Editor, and I’m Getting These 8 Memorial Day Sales



As I write this, my air conditioner is running, I’m sipping chilled water, and wearing a moisture-wicking tank—all signs that summer is nearly here. And since Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of summer, you know that I’m shopping all things warm weather right now. And I’ve found deals that start as low as $12. 

During Amazon’s Memorial Day sale, score tons of summer essentials for your home, kitchen, and wardrobe at stellar prices. As Real Simple’s Amazon shopping expert, I’ve done my fair share of research to find the best deals happening just for this weekend. And the nice thing about my job is I get insights for my own personal shopping, which is why I can’t wait to grab the discounted items below. On my list, you’ll find flowy dresses, cute swimsuits, air fryers, and even ice cream makers. Oh, and they’re from top brands like Grace Karin, Ninja, Cuisinart, Cupshe, and Cushionaire.

Editor-Approved Amazon Memorial Day Sales

Grace Karin Front Slit Off-Shoulder Elastic Waist Flared Dress


I’m attending an outdoor wedding in Jamaica this summer, and it’s going to be hot. I’ve been going back and forth on wedding guest dresses and found this gorgeous Grace Karin one that happens to be on sale this weekend. Made with lightweight polyester and stretchy elastane, the dress is ideal for tropical climates. Plus, it has a smocked bodice for extra comfort and a slit that allows a breeze to flow through. The straps that can also be worn on and off my shoulders, essentially changing up the look in 5 seconds flat. 

Cushionaire Petal Mary Jane Knit Flats


I’ve been seeing Mary Jane-style flats everywhere this season, and I’ve been wanting to get my hands on some. That’s where these Cushionaire Petal flats come in; they’re designed with a round toe box, a stretchy knit exterior, and that feminine instep strap I’m obsessed with. Plus, these have a memory foam insole, which is essential for anyone living in a walkable city, like New York. They come in five colors and styles, but I’m eyeing this lighter beige option for the season. 

Cuisinart Pure Indulgence 2-Quart Ice Cream Maker


If you’re anything like me, you love a sweet treat. I spend tons of time in the kitchen and I’ve learned that homemade is always best, and it’s time I take my desserts up a notch with this Cuisinart ice cream maker. I like fanciful ice cream flavors, which can get expensive, but this appliance can cut the cost by using a few of my own ingredients to churn out desserts in just 20 minutes. I’m hoping to make banana split, pistachio, and green tea ice creams! But in case you’re not into ice cream, it can deliver sorbets, gelatos, and sherberts, too.
