Like any good federal holiday, Memorial Day attracts plenty of attention from retailers and chain restaurants who want consumers to spend the long weekend shopping and eating out. And as always, that means they'll be making with the freebies, deals and sales throughout the weekend and on the holiday itself. Here are a few of the best deals you should consider snagging this weekend.

CouponChad.com points us to Aeropostale, which is taking 50% off "everything." This is a pretty startling figure -- you rarely see coupon codes or sales taking more than 40% off, and often those discounts apply only to sale items. Details on the sale are scant, but 50% markdowns are live now on Aeropostale.com and will presumably last through Memorial Day itself. The only stated exclusions are gift cards, fragrances, licensed products and unspecified "select styles."

FatWallet.com flags this blowout sale at Sears, which among other deals offers up to 30% off appliances. We're generally wary of any sale that uses the phrase "up to..." as that means that only some of the merchandise actually gets the full discount, but there look to be some solid discounts on fridges. You're also seeing deals on patio furniture and mattresses, plus "black friday pricing" on some lawn and garden items. The sale takes place in stores and online and ends Tuesday.

7-Eleven has declared this long weekend "Slurpee Days," and will be selling medium Slurpees for just 49 cents. The event lasts from Friday through Monday -- with the usual caveats about "participating stores" and "while supplies last."

Express is touting a five-day sale taking 40% off "every single item." And they seem to mean it -- with the obvious exception of gift cards, everything in stores and online is discounted by 40%. The sale is good through Memorial Day at 11:59 p.m. ET.
