ATLANTA -- I hunt deals for a living and spend as much time as humanly possible watching out for your wallet.

I've received many of our deal requests this month, compiling a list yesterday of what I would not buy.

Today, I'm doing the opposite. These are the absolute best buys you can make this month and I've supplied a coupon and deal to support each category at its lowest price in the country.

Do you want more deals? CLICK HERE to follow me on Twitter.

1) iPad accessories

Why? With Apple's WWDC (World Wide Developers Conference) right around the corner, accessory prices are at their lowest.

Top Deal Today: Tri-Lounge iPad lap pad + free shipping


Was: $59.99
Now: $39.99

*If you've ever tried typing on an iPad on a couch or on a bed, this is the best case on the market and I love it.


2) Grill-ready foods before Memorial Day

Why? Buy early and play your cards correctly and you'll score a great deal before the price hikes.

Top Deal Today: 50% off Memorial Day Omaha Steaks Grill Pack + free shipping

Was: $67.01
Now: $39.99


3) Mattresses!

Why? While there are reductions on Memorial Day (and some stores claiming discounts when there aren't any), it is a prime month to shop.

Top Deal Today: Up to 69% off Sealy mattresses + extra 10% off

*Free delivery included on most items


4) Patio furniture and accessories

Why? Markups are more aligned with weather and when folks start stocking up in June, prices are higher. Now is an excellent time to buy.

Top Deal Today: 50% off + extra 15% off Sonoma Outdoors patio umbrellas

Coupon code: SMS200

Was: $129.99
Now: $59.49

*$8.95 Shipping charge applied for this item


5) Appliances

After Memorial Day, the next big appliance price drop we see across the board is Labor Day weekend. This month prices will continue to drop and are excellent today.

Top Deal Today: Up to 20% off appliances + extra $35 off over $300
