The Xbox Series X is in stock today at the Microsoft Store. So, if you’ve been waiting months for a new Xbox, now’s your chance. Or, if PlayStation’s more your thing, the yearly Days of Play sale has a ton of games, controllers, and more for you to check out. But the big story this weekend is Memorial Day sales. We’ve rounded up the best tech deals this Memorial Day, from sellers like Dell, Lenovo, and more. Generally, you won’t find better prices on these categories until Black Friday.
Xbox Series X In Stock at Microsoft Store
The Xbox Series X is back in stock right now at the Microsoft Store, so if you’ve been waiting to splurge on a next-gen console, now is the time to jump in. You can buy the console itself, or you can bundle with 3 months of Xbox Game Pass to get quick access to the huge library of games on Microsoft’s subscription service. With upcoming games like Star Wars Jedi: Survivor moving to next-gen consoles only, it’s only a matter of time until the PS4 and Xbox One are phased out.
PlayStation Days of Play: Save on DualSense Controllers, PS5 Games, and More
On the PlayStation side, the annual Days of Play sale is underway now. You can save on PlayStation games like Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection, and more. Plus, if you want to grab one of those snazzy new DualSense controller colors, you can pick whichever one you like for $59.99. And, if you still haven’t played The Last of Us Part 2, it’s on sale for just $10 today.

Dell Memorial Day Deals
Amazon Memorial Day Sale
Amazon doesn’t push a Memorial Day sale as aggressively as other vendors, but that doesn’t mean the Amazon Memorial Day sale isn’t worth looking at. Not only does Amazon do an excellent job of price matching other merchants’ discounts, they have several great deals that aren’t specifically marketed as a Memorial Day special. For example, the Sony Days of Play event is also running now, and Amazon is offering some outstanding deals on PS5 controllers and games. There’s also the new 42″ LG C2 Evo OLED TV that was just released, and Amazon has it for the lowest price.

Walmart Memorial Day Sale
Walmart has its Memorial Day page live on its site. Walmart, like Amazon, tends to focus on non-tech deals as part of its Memorial Day Sale. Keep an eye out for a sprinkling of good TV deals. If you’re into working out, expect to see some deals on fitness items as well.
PS5 Restock: Walmart Confirms Dates For New Stock
Walmart has confirmed its latest PS5 stock drop will occur on June 2 as part of its post-Memorial Day sales and Walmart+ weekend. In case this is your first rodeo, only Walmart+ members will get access to new PS5 stock this time around.
If you haven’t got a Walmart+ account just yet, it costs $98/ year or there is a $12.95/ month alternative. But, it’s worth noting that you will not be able to access the PS5 drop via a free trial membership, so you’ll need to have an active paid Walmart+ subscription to participate.

Lenovo Memorial Day Sale
Lenovo doesn’t host as many sales as some of the other PC vendors, but they still have some solid deals for Memorial Day. In particular, look for big markdowns on the Lenovo Legion gaming PC lineup, especially the newer models with Intel Alder Lake processors and RTX 30 series video cards. The Lenovo Legion gaming desktops are often very highly rated for their build quality. People generally like the fact that Lenovo does not use proprietary components in their rigs, so future upgradeability is much easier done here than in other prebuilt PCs. Lenovo gaming rigs also boast adequate cooling, especially for the CPU, even if you opt for the base models.

HP Memorial Day Sale
Not do be outdone by Dell or Lenovo, HP also has some solid deals on gaming PCs for Memorial Day. For 2022, HP has updated its gaming lineup with two new models. The HP Victus is a budget oriented gaming PC that offers RTX 30 series power at a fantastic price point, The HP OMEN 40L and 45L are updates over the previous generation’s 25L and 30L. The new models have a larger chassis volume and twin (40L) or triple (45L) intake fans for better airflow. The 45L goes even further by placing a 360mm liquid cooling system externally above the case dubbed the “Cryo Chamber”. That allows for cooling that rivals enthusiast DIY systems. Components wise, both the 40L and 45L are equipped with the newest Intel Alder Lake processor, Z690 motherboard and RTX 30 series video card.

Memorial Day Sale Tips
Memorial Day lands on Monday, May 30 although many Memorial Day sales have gone live now. You’ll find all manners of tech deals on Memorial Day, but the best deals will be on gaming PCs and laptops, TVs, and toys like LEGOs and board games. Unfortunately it’s unlikely that the PS5 will go on sale specifically because of Memorial Day (the Xbox Series X is currently in stock at Microsoft direct). However Sony’s Days of Play event starts around the same time period and the sale for that event kicks off on May 25. That could potentially mean a return of PS5 stock from select vendors like PlayStation direct.
