Sleep well on discounted mattresses
Labor Day sales on mattresses are some of the most impressive of the year, thanks in part to warm weather months being the most popular time to buy a new home according to Zillow data. Expect to save as much as 75 percent off top name mattresses at major retailers, with popular bedding brand Leesa shaving $200 off their Leesa Mattress and $250 off their Leesa Hybrid. Better yet, they’ll throw in two free Leesa pillows, which made our list of the best pillows for every type of sleeper. Just make sure you take advantage of the deal between now and September 2.
Up to half off furniture and home accents
Major retailers tend to push deals ranging from 10 to 50 percent off furniture in the days leading up to Labor Day weekend, so if you need something to put your new mattress on, a back-to-school desk to write on, or a coffee table to enjoy by your new television—now is the time. Overstock customers will enjoy free two-day delivery, up to an extra 15 percent off furniture and home decor, and 5 percent back in rewards for Club O members. This tri-level plant stand now costs less than your cell phone bill (probably).
Buy luxury home appliances now
If you’ve been lusting after a robotic vacuum since you first saw the iRobot grace our list of the coolest tech gifts, there’s good news—the shoulder season of cleaning technology is after spring cleaning and before the major December holidays, which means Labor Day signals major savings. Take as much as $150 off top-selling Roomba robotic vacuums now through September 7, with crowd favorites like the Roomba e5 marked down to $399.
Rush to buy garden and patio furniture
If you wore yours out all summer long, live in a warm climate year-round, or just love the idea of an absolute bargain, you’ll be happy to know end-of-season sales on garden and patio furniture can help you save some serious cash. We found as much as 40 percent off entire stocks of hammocks, swings, and other photo-worthy outdoor pieces.
Watch your wallet smile
Watch all the best games, classic shows on Netflix, and new episodes of your favorite series on a new television this fall, because just about every major brand slashes their prices for Labor Day weekend. We found deals as sweet as $499 at Walmart on 65″ Vizio HD LED displays.
Is it snack o’clock already?
We think so, because major snack food companies across the board are discounting their most popular products, offering coupons, incentives, and bulk purchasing deals. You’ll even find warehouse retailers offering as much as an additional 20 percent off already-inexpensive juice boxes, coffee pods and cups, and sandwich condiments. If you go through ketchup, BBQ sauce, mustard, or mayo—now is the best time to load your cart thanks to grill season coming to a close.
A shower of discounts
Popular shampoos, conditioners, and other hair products are typically marked down by as much as 80 percent at major retailers. While other seasons typically rely on coupons, rebates, and special promo codes to score savings, Labor Day sparks a nearly-effortless way to save on some of the best shampoos for oily hair, dry hair, frizzy hair, limp hair, and every other type. You’ll save $23 on this large Biolage Colorlast set through Labor Day, which should be enough to last you till it’s time to break out your winter hats.
Kitchen lighting is cheapest now
If remodeling your kitchen or sprucing up your light fixtures is high on your checklist, the days leading up the Labor Day are ideal for scoring designer-level kitchen lighting at bargain-basement prices. We found dozens of current lighting styles ranging from simple and sophisticated to all-out glamour marked down by 40 percent on Build.com with code LABORDAY at checkout through September 5.
Travel bags and luggage at up to 80% off
With the bulk of travel season behind us, now is the time to scoop up serious discounts on luggage, travel, bags, and toiletry kits. This eBags Pack-it-Flat Large Hanging Toiletry Bag is normally about $50 but will be marked down to $19.99 on September 3 as a lightning deal. A good travel bag is one of the best Amazon products you’ll use all the time.
Take up 50% or more off underwear and pajamas
While the best back-to-school sales on clothes have mostly passed us all by already, important underpinnings like underwear and pajamas are typically marked down significantly around Labor Day Weekend. Soma is offering a take 50 percent off your highest-priced item deal now through September 2 when you buy more than one non-clearance item, a 7-for-$37 deal on their most popular Embraceable panties through September 3.
Google what to do with these savings
If you’ve been pining after a smart home device to answer all your most intense trivia, weather, cooking, and time questions—hop on board the Google train and treat yourself to a discounted Google Home Smart Speaker at $50 off through Labor Day weekend. It’s one of our favorite products you won’t find on Amazon Prime Day.

With warm weather home renovation season coming to a close, just about everything for the home goes on sale. That includes on-trend coveted rugs, which can be found marked down at almost every major home decor retailer.

Play your wardrobe cards right
While underpinnings and children’s clothes are discounted for Labor Day and back-to-school sales, many adult fashion discounts just can’t compare to the deals you’ll find closer to Thanksgiving and Christmas. One noteworthy exception is denim of all shapes and styles though because brands love setting trends at the start of each school year. Lust-worthy brands like Kut from the Kloth will offer some of their most popular styles at an additional 25 percent off from August 29 through September 25, beating some of the prices they offered at this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
