So many stores and online retailers have Memorial Day weekend sales that sometimes it can be hard to tell the real deals from the negligible discounts.

The following retailers are among those with sales that we consider worth perusing.

As always, don’t forget that you can boost your savings from any sale — Memorial Day or otherwise — by going through a cash-back site such as Ebates.com or TopCashback.com.

You’ll find sales at:

3 home improvement retailers

Ace Hardware, Home Depot and Lowe’s are all hosting big Memorial Day weekend sales. Which one is best for you will depend on what you want to buy this weekend.

For example, major appliances are up to 40 percent off at Home Depot and Lowe’s. So, check out those deals if you’re in the market for a new fridge or other big appliance. And note that both retailers’ major-appliance offers are good until June 6.

3 tech retailers

Various types of computers, electronics and other gadgets are on sale — for up to 60 percent off as of Thursday — at Dell as well as Office Depot and Office Max this weekend. As with the home improvement retailers’ sales, which sale is better depends on what you might be buying.

Laptops, desktop computers and TVs are some of the big-ticket items on sale at these retailers. So, before you buy such an item, be sure to first compare prices.

2 department stores

On top of its Memorial Day sale — which involves items in just about every department — Kohl’s is offering two great discounts. Both are good through Monday:

So, basically, if you buy $35 worth of stuff from Kohl’s this holiday weekend, you will pay only $25 for it and walk away with a coupon good for $5 off a future purchase.

Over at Macy’s, you will also find two discounts that you can combine with the Memorial Day sale. Both are good through Monday:
