Best Memorial Day Weekend Sales

Anderson Ross/Brand X Pictures(NEW YORK) -- If you are on the hunt for the best Memorial Day weekend shopping deals, you might want to start sooner rather than later, said Tamra Feldman, vice president of marketing for the personalized shopping deals site, Shop It To Me.

After analyzing over 693,000 online deals through 2011 and over 8,000 from Memorial Day weekend last year, Shop It To Me, which provides users with personalized updates of items in their sizes with their preferred brands, found that the best markdowns come Friday and Saturday. The discounts then tapered off on Sunday and Monday.

"The good stuff is going to go quickly," Feldman said, adding that the sale items are mostly summer wear and products.

Because some sales began this year as early as Wednesday, the best deals may be flying off shelves earlier than expected, Feldman said.

For those who prefer to honor the nation's veterans this holiday weekend away from shopping crowds, many online retailers offer free shipping and returns, such as Nordstrom, Zappos and Piperlime.

Here are some of the best shopping deals pulled together from Shop It To Me and ABC News:
