August may seem like a slow month for deals, but I've found that it's actually quite busy. On the one hand, you have retailers offering last-minute back-to-school sales, This includes deals on everything from tablets to mattresses. 

Now that we're past the middle of the month, I'm also starting to see the first Labor Day sales of 2023. So whether you're shopping for a new laptop or a new robot vacuum, now is actually a pretty good time to make a purchase. As deals editor at Tom's Guide, I have over a decade's worth of experience separating good deals from mediocre sales. So below I've rounded up 15 of the best sales you can get this weekend at Amazon. This includes deals on smart speakers, Apple devices and Galaxy phones. 

If you're preoccupied that prices may drop further come Labor Day, don't worry. It's late enough in the month that many of the sales you see now will be the same ones that'll reappear on September 4. For more ways to save at Amazon, check out our guide to this week's best Amazon promo codes.
