Welcome to Tom's Guide's Labor Day live blog! Here we'll be covering all the biggest discounts and best deals throughout the entire day. So, let's start with am all-time low price on the 2021 MacBook Pro.
The powerhouse MacBook Pro 14" is on sale for $1,599 at Best Buy. That's a $400 saving compared to its full retail price of $1,999. This is the lowest price we've ever seen for this laptop, and it's a Labor Day deal that is hard to resist.
In our Apple MacBook Pro 14-inch (2021) review, we were seriously impressed by what this device had to offer. It has pretty much everything you could want in a laptop; including incredible performance, a beautiful display and battery life that lasted over 14 hours in our tests.

It wouldn't be a holiday weekend without sizeable savings on top-quality TVs, and while there are dozens of excellent discounts on a range of fantastic televisions, our top pick is the LG A1 OLED TV.
For a limited time, the LG A1 55" 4K OLED TV is $965 at Amazon. That's a saving of 26% compared to its regular price of $1,299, and is definitely one of the best Labor Day TV sales we've spotted so far.
We rank the LG A1 OLED as one of the the best OLED TVs you can buy. It packs LG's powerful Alpha 7 Gen 4 processor and 4K resolution, HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision support, while running on LG's webOS 6.0 Smart TV software. This particular model packs a rich 55-inch 4K Ultra HD display with an OLED panel and has a refresh rate of 60Hz.

The always-popular Apple Watch 7 is currently on sale for Labor Day, making now the ideal time to upgrade your smartwatch, or jump into the world of wearables for the first time.
Right now, the Apple Watch 7 (GPS/41mm) is on sale for $299 at Amazon. This is the best smartwatch you can buy if you're an iOS user. Compared to the previous Apple Watch, the Apple Watch 7 offers a larger display, brighter screen, and faster charging. It's also the first Apple Watch to have a full QWERTY keyboard, which is super useful for quickly sending texts from your wrist.
It's also the perfect fitness accessory, especially if you also sign up for the optional Apple Fitness Plus service. The main drawback of this smartwatch is the 18-hour battery life, which is less than half of its main rival the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. But so long as you charge it regularly, it's far from a deal breaker.
Apple Watch 7 (GPS/41mm):
$399 $299 @ Amazon
One of the biggest discounts we've seen of Labor Day so far comes courtesy of Walmart. The retailer has slashed this Anker Robot Vacuum by $120. Right now, the Anker Eufy 25C Robot Vacuum is on sale for $129 at Walmart. That's a massive saving compared to its regular price of $249.
While the Eufy 25C doesn't have mapping capabilities like some more pricey alternatives, it can still be controlled from your smartphone and linked to other Eufy smart home devices. You can also connect it to Alexa and Google Assistant, and use those smart assistants to tell the 25C to start cleaning.
The Eufy 25C isn't the most powerful vac on the market, but it's more affordable price tag makes it a great pick as a first robot vacuum. This Labor Day sale isn't quite it's all time low price, but it's still an excellent discount.
Anker Eufy 25C:
$249 $129 @ Walmart
One of the most popular early Labor Day deals is still running, and it's continuing to us impress us even now.
We rate the 10.2" iPad as the best tablet for people on a budget. That's because of its excellent screen, cameras, and 11-hour battery life. In our iPad 10.2 review, we were also impressed by this tablet's performance thanks to its new A13 Bionic chip. It's perfect for browsing, streaming, and gaming, and you'll be able multitask and switch between apps in a flash.

Our favorite budget mattress is on sale for Labor Day. Nectar is taking $200 off mattresses of any size. And if that wasn't enough of a deal, you also get a free bedding set worth $499 with any mattress purchase.
The Editor's Choice Nectar Memory Foam mattress offers tremendous value for the money and holds a spot in our best mattress guide. In our Nectar Memory Foam mattress review, we found that it's very comfortable (thanks to its five layers of memory foam) and it offers excellent pressure relief around your shoulders, hips, and back. Bonus points for offering an impressive 365-night trial and a forever guarantee.
As part of its current Labor Day sale — you can get the twin mattress for $399 (was $798) or the queen for $799 (was $1,298).
$798 $399 @ Nectar
The best Labor Day deals aren't just about saving money, the annual holiday also offer the chance to score some excellent freebies with purchase. Case in point, Amazon is offering a free Echo Dot (3rd Gen) when you buy a Fire TV.
Fire TVs start from just $89, with a 50-inch 4K model available for just $299 (down from $429). An Echo Dot (3rd Gen) usually retails for $39, but has been discounted for Labor Day to $29. It's a nifty little freebie, especially if you were already in the market for a brand new TV.
Fire TV + Echo Dot: from $89 @ Amazon
It's hard not to flag this $10 discount on Elden Ring for PS5 at Amazon. The tough-as-nails RPG is easily one of the best games of the year so far, and dominated the gaming conversation for weeks when it launched back in February.
From the creators of Dark Souls and Bloodborne and with story assistance from George R. R. Martin, the author of Game of Thrones, Elden Ring offers a cryptic narrative set in an expansion open-world with danger lurking behind every corner. It's undoubtedly a very difficult game but it's also one that you won't want to stop playing. It was easy to recommend at full price, now at $10 off, there's no excuse not to dive into Elden Ring. Just prepare to die, a lot.
Elden Ring (PS5):
$59 $49 @ Amazon
Let's be honest — the Apple TV 4K is an excellent streaming device, but it's a little expensive. At a retail price of $179, it costs over three times as much as some other popular streaming sticks like the $49 Roku Streaming Stick 4K.
However, for Labor Day, the Apple TV 4K has seen a big discount at Amazon, bringing it down to a much less eye-boggling $119. The device has excellent streaming performance, a good remote, and its interface doesn't throw as many ads in your face as Roku or Amazon streaming devices do.
Apple TV 4K (32GB):
$179 $119 @ Amazon
If you're shopping for a new phone this Labor Day, look no further than this live blog. The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is $200 cheaper than usual at Amazon for the holiday.
If you're on team Android, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is our choice for the best phone you can get right now. It has the best display of any phone we've tested. Plus, the cameras are excellent, especially in low light. The phone even comes with the S-Pen included for smooth note-taking and drawing.
The one drawback of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is its 10-hour battery life. For comparison, the iPhone 13 Pro Max lasted more than 12 hours in our testing. But keep in mind that 10 hours of juice is enough to get most people through the day without needing to carry a charger around.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra:
$1,199 $995 @ Amazon
Fancy a gaming laptop? Check out the Acer Nitro 5. It's already relatively affordable at its usual asking price of $839, but Amazon have the Acer Nitro 5 (i5/RTX 3050) for $649.
It doesn't have the specs to run graphically-intensive games at high settings, but that's a lot to ask of a gaming laptop that costs below $1000. The Intel Core i5 processor and RTX 3050 GPU Acer Nitro 5 are more than enough to run popular games like Assasins Creed Valhalla or Grand Theft Auto V at medium settings.
If you have a little more to spend, you could upgrade to the Acer Nitro 5 (i7/RTX 3050 Ti) for $789 for some improved performance.
Acer Nitro 5:
$839 $694 @ Amazon

If you buy a bundle, you'll also get an extra $100 off.

Ok, this isn't a Labor Day sale per se, but just a heads up that Walmart has stock of the PS5 with Horizon Forbidden West. PS5 restock has gotten a little easier to find these days, although there are still a few console droughts from time to time. That said, you can pick up this bundle for list price today. Best part is you don't have to request an invite to purchase the console like most retailers require nowadays!
PS5 Horizon Forbidden West Bundle: for $549 @ Walmart

If you've been waiting for the right time to pick up a new smartwatch, Best Buy has a pretty epic deal right now. Buy a Galaxy Watch 5 or Galaxy Watch 5 Pro and you'll get a free $40 or $60 Best Buy gift card, respectively. In our Galaxy Watch 5 review, we called it the best Samsung smartwatch to date. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is great if you want extra battery life. (It's rated for 80 hours, but we got 3 full days with regular use).
Galaxy Watch 5 / Galaxy Watch 5 Pro: free $40 or $60 gift card @ Best Buy
Labor Day is the perfect time to upgrade your bed. Practically all mattress manufacturers are offering deals on beds, duvets, mattress toppers, pillows, and all things bedroom related. One of my favorite deals this afternoon comes from Nectar. They have their Nectar Down Alternative duvet on sale for $94. I bought it a few years ago and find it's perfect for keeping me cool in the summer and warm during the winter. I'm pretty sure this is the cheapest it's ever been price-wise. (For more bedding deals, check out our roundup of the best Labor Day mattress sales).
$152 $94 @ Nectar

When I want fast and strong coffee — nothing beats my Nespresso machine. For a limited time, Amazon has the Nespresso Vertuo Next on sale for $149. It uses the same premium brewing techniques as the popular Vertuo Plus machine, but packs a much smaller form factor. It's perfect if you want a convenient pod-based machine that won't take up your entire countertop. This model holds a spot on our best Nespresso machine guide.
