Labor Day is right around the corner! Even though many stores are still finishing up their back-to-school promotions, the day is worth planning for since there are sure to be outstanding deals that will be offered on (or around) this year’s holiday on Sept. 6.
What Labor Day sales can you expect in 2021? If past years are any indication, you can look forward to major deals on large appliances from stores like Lowe’s, Best Buy, and Home Depot. And since Labor Day signals the unofficial end to summer, there’s a good chance you’ll see markdowns on items like outdoor furniture, grills, and barbecue accessories. Walmart and Macy’s will also have big sales across many categories.
Let’s take a look at some of the early Labor Day deals currently available. This will give you a sense of what to look for — or you may find exactly what you need now!

This Samsung 24-inch. Stainless Steel Dishwasher offers just a taste of what’s to come during Home Depot’s Labor Day sales. It has an adjustable upper rack that can accommodate various dish shapes, and four wash cycles, along with its five wash options.

This Samsung is probably quieter than what you’re used to, as it operates at around 55 decibels.

If you have a furry companion living at home, this vacuum may soon become your next best friend. Geared especially for residences with pets, the Shark Navigator comes with a self-cleaning brushroll that sucks up pet hair from carpets and upholstery without getting tangled up.

Mattresses are a popular item during Labor Day sales, and this Sealy Essentials Plush Pillow Top Mattress is a great example of what you can find. To be clear, this is not for those who prefer a firm mattress. Its SealyCushion Air Foam provides air flow and relaxing softness every time you lie down. If you could dissect this plush mattress, you’d see that it’s made with layers of cushioning atop a spring core to give the support and comfort you’d expect from the Sealy brand.
