Labor Day sales aren't quite finished yet. The holiday is now over, but many of the best deals are expected to be available throughout the week. End of summer deals and last-minute back to school shopping will also help keep prices low for the next few days. 

In addition, high prices, fears of a recession, and ongoing stock shortages are causing retailers to offer bigger-than-average discounts on everything from 4K TVs to major kitchen appliances. That's great news for shoppers looking to cut down on spending as it gives you more options to buy the things you need at the prices you want. 

Generally speaking, Labor Day is a great time to score discounts on 4K TVs, appliances, furniture, and laptops. You'll also find excellent Labor Day mattress sales and discounts on home furniture. 

To date some of the best sales we've seen come courtesy of Best Buy. For instance, the retailer is taking up to $400 off select MacBook Pros with prices from $949 (opens in new tab). (That sets a new record for the cheapest MacBook Pro we've ever seen). Best Buy — along with Amazon — are also offering the 10.2-inch iPad for just $279, which is a new price low for Apple's entry-level tablet. 

If you're not a Mac fan, we've also spotted a great sale on Dell laptops. The PC manufacturer is taking up to $350 off Windows laptops with prices from $209 (opens in new tab). The XPS laptop, which is one of our favorite machines, is on sale from $849, which is great Labor Day deal for anyone doing any last-minute back to school shopping. 

If you're shopping for major appliances, Samsung is taking up to $1,200 off its collection of large appliances (opens in new tab). The sale includes refrigerators, washer/dryer unites, dishwashers, and robot vacs. 

Labor Day is the last big sale before the holiday season begins in late October. It also marks the unofficial end of summer. So here are the best Labor Day sales you can still get. (Also, there's talk of another Prime Day that'll allegedly happen later this fall).

Labor Day vs. back to school

Labor Day and back to school season are two separate events. However, there is some crossover between the two. That said, the best back to school sales can be found now and through the month of August. As August comes to a close, retailers will quickly focus their attention on Labor Day. Our advice: if you're shopping for back to school, buy now so you can avoid any shipping delays and/or product shortages. If you're making a big purchase — such as buying a new mattress or major kitchen appliance — you'll find better prices over the Labor Day holiday weekend. 

When is Labor Day 2022?

Labor Day 2022 will fall on Monday, September 5. The national holiday is held on the first Monday of September to honor the American labor movement. Every year, retailers like Best Buy, Target, and Amazon offer a wide variety of Labor Day sales with sitewide discounts. 

What are the best Labor Day sales?

Labor Day sales are a great time to shop for deals on TVs, laptops, mattresses, and home appliances. One thing to keep in mind, however, is that the holiday shopping season — namely Black Friday and Cyber Monday — are just a few months out. If you need something asap, Labor Day sales are a great time to shop. If you can afford to wait awhile, our dollar will go further in November and December.
