Labor Day sales have been extended through the end of the week. While a few of my favorite deals have expired (goodbye, $899 MacBook Air M2), there are a surprisingly good amount of deals you can still get. In a few instances, prices are even cheaper today than they were yesterday. 

I've been covering retail holidays like Labor Day for over 10 years. As deals editor at Tom's Guide, it's my job to separate the good deals from the bad ones. In this live blog I'll be curating the best Labor Day deals still available on items we recommend, devices we've tested, and gadgets we personally own or use every day. From the best budget OLED TV to our favorite coffee machines, I'm looking at all of this week's sales and spotlighting the ones I think merit your attention. 

Not all deals will be easy to vet, so if something's on sale now, but was cheaper yesterday or a few weeks ago, I'll call that out. Likewise, I'll price check items we list on Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and other major retailers. 

It's worth noting there will be a Prime Day in October and the first Black Friday deals will likely to start in late October. So if your favorite Labor Day sales are gone, new deals are on the way.

🚨 LOWEST PRICE EVER! I'm starting our Labor Day sales live blog with one of the best deals I've seen in all of 2023. Right now you can get the 13-inch MacBook Air M2 on sale for $899 at Best Buy. That's the cheapest it's ever been and an epic value for students, Mac fans, or just about anyone in need of a new laptop. Best Buy offered it at this price in August, but it was a members-only deal. It's now available to anyone. Amazon still has the previous-gen 13-inch MacBook Air M1 on sale for $749 (also an all-time price low), but if you can afford to pay a bit more — the M2 chip is the better investment. Again, that M1 MBA is solid if you're strapped for cash, but the M2 for $899 is the deal I personally recommend. If you're on the fence, check out our MacBook Air M2 vs MacBook Air M1 guide by our computing expert Tony Polanco for a side-by-side comparison.

This isn't an all-time price low. The 48-inch LG A2 4K OLED TV hit $569 last Black Friday. However, even at $649 this is an epic and rare deal on an OLED TV that we recommend. In our LG A2 OLED review, we said it offers outstanding picture quality, a great smart TV platform, and solid sound, plus low input lag. It offers Dolby Vision/HDR10/HLG support, LG's webOS platform, and built-in Google Assistant/Amazon Alexa. Heads up, the refresh rate is only 60Hz (120Hz is better) and there are just three HDMI ports. But otherwise this is a great deal. Note that this 48-inch model is a Best Buy exclusive.

The Bose 700 headphones are one of the top noise-cancelling headphones you can buy. They're stylish, comfortable to wear, and deliver the best noise-cancelling experience you can find. In our Bose 700 review, we said they offer clean, balanced sound with impressive, intuitive tech flourishes. They've dipped as low as $269 in the past, but that was a very limited deal. Priced at $299, they're a must if you want the best noise cancelling headphones around.

Ok, so this isn't a dollar-off discount, but if you were planning on buying the Galaxy Galaxy Watch 6 or the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic, Best Buy is bundling them with a free $50 Best Buy eGift card. In our Galaxy Watch 6 review, we said the new watches seem like the most polished Samsung smartwatches yet with truly substantial upgrades like a brighter display, comprehensive sleep tracking features, and slimmer design. Make sure to check out our Galaxy Watch 6 vs Galaxy Watch 6 Classic comparison to find out the main differences between Samsung's new watches.

Samsung S95C OLED TV with deal tag

If you’re looking to seriously upgrade your setup this Labor Day, you’re in luck. The Samsung S95C is one of the best OLED TVs we’ve reviewed, and it’s been slashed in price in time for the holiday. In our Samsung S95C OLED TV review, we praised this model’s impressive brightness, excellent picture quality and easy cable management thanks to Samsung’s One Connect box. We also think this is the best gaming TV you can buy — it has a super low lag time of 9.2ms and can reach a refresh rate of 144Hz when used as a PC gaming monitor. The Samsung 55-inch S95C OLED TV is on sale for $500 off at Amazon right now — some third-party retailers on Amazon are offering bigger discounts, but stock is extremely limited.

One of my favorite smart home deals from Amazon has made a comeback just in time for Labor Day. The retailer is offering Echo speakers from $24, and you get a free Sengled smart bulb with many of the speakers too. The smart bulb can be controlled using the smart speaker, meaning you can set up automatic light shows, put your lights on a timer or turn off your lights at night without getting out of bed.
