For some, May means endless chips and margaritas in celebration of Cinco de Mayo, and to others, it means pulling out their best dresses and hats to cheer on horses in the iconic Kentucky Derby. For others still, it means the weather is finally warming up, and it’s time to have fun! And nothing says fun like the best May deals and steals!

No matter what you’re doing this May, make sure you don’t miss out on these deals that are going on this week and throughout the month! We searched high and low around the internet for the best of the best, because hey, nothing is better than cheap food and almost free airline tickets.
