Spring is the best season to shop for all things outdoor and home improvement. Not only that, but with two holidays taking place in May (Mother’s Day and Memorial Day), you can expect plenty of sales on the Flipp app to quench your thirst for shopping and savings.

Mother’s Day Gifts

Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 9th so get ready to spoil Mom (and yourself) with great deals on flowers, accessories, apparel, self-care products, and more. Be sure to check out the JCPenney Mother’s Day ad for deals on jewelry and more. For our friends in Canada, Sephora Canada’s Mother’s Day Gift Guide features designer fragrances and skincare gift sets you shouldn’t miss.

Small Appliances

April was the month to upgrade your large appliances, but thankfully the home sales didn’t end there. Now is the time to buy that coffee maker you’ve been wanting all season. Other small appliances like toasters, blenders, and pressure cookers will be on sale too, so search for them on Flipp and get ready to save big.

Patio Furniture and Decor

If you’re looking to upgrade your patio or outdoor space, you’re in luck. Retailers like Home Depot and Big Lots have spring catalogs featuring their outdoor furniture and decor like lighting, accent pillows, and outdoor rugs. For our friends in Canada, Real Canadian Superstore’s Outdoor Living guide features seat cushions, lounger chairs, gazebos, and more to help you create your outdoor oasis.

Plants, Seeds, and Planters 

Plants are a budget-friendly way to transform a space, and with local nurseries opening up for the season, now is a good time to work on your green thumb. Check out the Home & Garden section of the Flipp app to see what’s available in your area. If you’re a new plant parent, check out this blog post written by Instagram houseplant enthusiast @mariagrows for the top five beginner-friendly plants.

Air Conditioners

The warmer months haven’t hit just yet, so get ahead of the curb by purchasing an air conditioner now. This will give you a chance to buy one before demand picks up and prices rise. Flipp Tipp: If you only need air conditioning for the season, you can save a few extra dollars by buying second-hand. Online marketplaces like Facebook Marketplace, eBay, and OfferUp are great places to look.


Ready to upgrade your mattress? You can expect mattress sales spaced out throughout the month, but especially during Memorial Day weekend from May 28 – 31. Search for mattresses on the Flipp app to see what deals are available at your local stores.
