Labor Day weekend marks the end of summer and the last of the three-day weekend celebrations for a while. It is also a great time to shop and buy outdoor furniture, grills and more for nearly half price.

Last year, mattresses ran for 60% off full prices from places like Walmart and Sears. Expect clothing and shoe prices to also drop, and savings of between 20 to 75% off from places like Shoes.com.

Although Labor Day is a week away, the deals start early–most beginning Friday, August 31.

Here are some of the hottest Labor Day sales going on this weekend:


Sears will run up to 40% off on appliances with an additional 10% off those over $399. Mattresses will be up to 60% off and Craftsman tools 50% off. If you’re shopping for a fall wardrobe, you can get up to 50% off clothing and $50 cash back points when you spend $50.

Home Depot

Home Depot will discount home appliances, refrigerators, washers, dryers and more by up to 40%.


You can expect to find discounts on items in just about every department at Macy’s, but the biggest discounts will be on clothing. Summer clothes are all on clearance, so you’ll score the lowest prices of the year on shorts, tees, swimsuits, and more.


You’ll find up to 60% off select electronics, home and garden, home improvement and more during the Labor Day Sale. A few hot items you can score for less include:

1, Amazon move: 10% off orders up to $200

2. Fire TV 4K UltraHD HDR Device w/ Alexa Remote $40 (orig $70)

3. Fire TV Cube 4K HDR Device w/ Alexa $90

4. Fire 7″ Kids Edition Tablet $80


Walmart will cut prices on patio furniture, clothing and up to 40% off on select electronics, computers, video games, home goods and more. Free shipping on orders over $35.


In the past Target has run Labor Day sales on high-end brands like Dyson. So if you’re in the market for a vacuum, check them out. They also usually have great deals on TVs, furniture and patio sets.


REI’s annual Labor Day sale is a great time to score some of the best outdoor and camping gear prices of the year. This year you can save up to 40% on select items in the store and most products are eligible for online ordering with same-day in-store pickup. You’ll also get free shipping on orders over $50. Use code EXTRA20 for select outlet products with prices ending in a .73.

Extra savings tip

If you’re ordering online this weekend, be sure to earn cash back on pretty much everything you buy with Ebates (between 2 to 5%).
