I have a bittersweet relationship with Labor Day sales. Part of me hates when the holiday rolls around because it’s the unofficial end of summer (my favorite season), but the bargain shopper in me loves a good deal and Labor Day is full of them. This year, tons of retailers are offering bigger and better discounts and they’re rolling them out sooner than ever, and they’re mostly online. You can find killer deals on everything from electronics to home furnishings and cookware for unbelievable prices if you know where to look.
To help you strategize your Labor Day sales plan of attack, we’ve combed through all of the best deals that are available to shop right now (and included some previews of sales to come!) and compiled a list of the best ones to shop.
