Labor Day Weekend is upon us once more. Whether you see it as the unofficial end of summer or the perfect excuse for a last hurrah, there’s no getting around the fact that fall is on its way.
This is a perfect opportunity to tell you all about the history and purpose of Labor Day. It’s a fascinating story. Or, we can just tell you about all the places you can save money with great Labor Day sales. (Seriously though, the story of Labor Day is an important one.)
Depending on what you need, Labor Day can be a great time to stock up on things you’ll likely use all year round.
Cars and Tech
Need a new laptop? Need a new TV? Want a new car? Black Friday gets all the attention when it comes to deals, but Labor Day is the sleeper savings star. To be fair, there are a few things that it’s better to wait till November for. But, you’d be surprised how much you can save a little earlier, and with much less pandemonium.
is offering up to $250 off of PixelBook laptops until September 9th.
is offering up to $100 off the Echo home device also until September 9th.
Here’s a little secret. Dealerships want to fill their lots with the latest cars. Around this time of the year, 2019 models are out in full swing. The problem, there are still a bunch of 2018 models that they have to do something with. What they do, is offer major deals on new models when you finance or lease. 0 percent financing is a popular offer, be sure to ask about rebates and always negotiate.
Furniture and Appliances
is offering 30% off bedding and bath products.
If you’re a Sam’s Club
member, you can enjoy as much as $1,500 off of furniture, mattresses, and major appliances.
Save up to 40% on appliances at Sears
. Save an additional 10% on appliances over $399 as well as free delivery.
has a similar sale of up to 40% off of appliances. However, Best Buy is one of those places where it may be better to wait until Black Friday. While 40% is nothing to slouch at, Best Buy is notorious for outrageous sales during Black Friday (particularly when it comes to TVs).
Don’t forget about online shopping as well. Most of the deals that apply in persona are available when you shop the store’s website as well. In some cases, you can save even more money on top of saving yourself a trip. Moreover, online stock almost always has a larger selection than what’s on the shelves.
has a whopping 70% off sale for the holiday!
Online travel businesses like Expedia
tend to have great savings if you plan to take a late summer vacation.
Additionally, the end of summer is the best time to buy summer clothes. At this point, stores are getting ready to stock their fall lines and fashions. Much the same way dealerships are looking to make space for next year’s cars, fashion stores are looking to make room for the next season. This is entirely to your benefit. You just might have to wait a little while to show them off, depending on the weather.
The best thing about holiday sales is that pretty much everyone has to have them to keep up with everyone else. Therefore, wherever you look, there’s a good chance you’ll find a Labor Day Sale. Some places to try are Lowes, Home Depot, Kohl’s, Macy’s, JCPenny, Wayfair, REI
, all the places listed above, and many many more
. Have a safe, happy, healthy holiday, and save some cash while you do it.
