Labor Day signifies a lot of things — the end of summer, the beginning of the school year, and... deal time. That's right, there are some big bargains to be had this coming weekend if you know what to look for. We've rounded up 5 products that always go on sale Labor Day weekend so you can prepare to save. It might not quite be a Black Friday or a Cyber Monday, but Labor Day weekend is a prime time to shop.
In the past, I was a little suspicious of Labor Day deals. Of course, all of the summer clothes are on clearance because the season has passed, but who knows what will be fashionable next year, or what your kids will fit into by then? Then I had an "aha" moment. If summer clothes are on sale, then a whole bunch of other seasonal items must also be marked down, that tend to be more timeless. I started daydreaming about new deck furniture for my future backyard oasis. It turns out, Labor Day is indeed the savviest time to shop for patio furniture, according to Brad's Deals. (I see a chaise lounge in my very near future!)
Beyond clothes and patio furniture, stores slash prices on quite a few other items this time of year. "Retailers are making room for other seasonal merchandise in many areas," explained Consumer Reports. So, without further ado, here are five of the best annual Labor Day deals.
