Labor Day

Sep 1, 2021 | Personal Finance

A Labor Day You Won’t Believe.

You work hard for the money, and there’s nothing wrong with making the most of it.

This year’s Labor Day deals are predicted to be better than ever, due to decreased in-store sales this past year, so merchandise you’ve had your eye on might be especially affordable. The end of summer and back-to-school sales will most likely extend to the Labor Day savings event, giving you a greater bang for your buck.

All Up in Your Grill

It’s not a proper sendoff to summer without a cookout, and maybe you’ve been putting off replacing that old smoker because the time — or price — never seemed right.

Lowe’s has a grill to match just about every level of outdoor cooking expertise. Pickup or delivery available for most models. Visit here.

Take a Load Off

It’s not going to do you much good to upgrade the grill if the patio furniture is on its last leg, and that leg is held up by a book. With warmer weather winding down, a careful shopper will most likely be able to find some good deals on outdoor furniture.

Walmart has some pretty sweet savings for that outdoor suite. Check’em out.

Indoor Fireworks

But if it’s the indoor furniture that you’re concerned with, Ashley Furniture may be able to give your room a whole new look and a new lease on life with their Labor Day sale. Couches, recliners, and even home theater seats up to 30% off, with TV stands and table sets with 40% savings. Check here.

But if that’s not to your taste, there’s always The Room Place, offering an additional 15% off your total purchase. Take a look at this.

Dress for Success

Kohl’s is digging deep into their pocket and offering $5 in Kohl’s Cash for every $25 you spend. They have an extended clearance section, free shipping, and sales on clothing. Try this on for size.

Back to Back-to-School Savings

Although school has started for most parts of the country, it’s never too late to add on a few items that you might have overlooked in the rush to get ready the first time around. Most back-to-school sales start in July and run up through Labor Day weekend.

If you’re a teacher, Dollar General is offering a 30% discount on, well, almost everything, and it doesn’t end with Labor Day. Educators will receive a reusable coupon that will keep you coming back for more. Visit here.

No Such Thing as a Bad Hair Day if You Shop Here

If you’re looking for affordable hair accessories made even more affordable, Bellefixe may have what you’re looking for. Their Labord Day sale runs from September 1 to the 10th, with no coupon required. In fact, you can take 30% off of order $40-$60, and 50% off of orders of $100 or more. Check it out.

In the Navy

Old Navy is offering up to 60% off of everything over the Labor Day weekend, the 4th through the 7th. Jeans start at $15 and the clearance section starts as low as under $2.00. Visit here.

Tech Stuff & More

If your student is headed off to college or just spending another semester doing remote learning, it may be time to upgrade to that new laptop you’ve been putting off. Over the Labor Day weekend sales period, Best Buy will be offering name-brand laptops for as much as 60% off, with other deals on Chromebooks, ear buds, and other tech items. Best Buy anticipates rotating its sales items, so you might want to check back often.

And if you aren’t particularly looking for a new computer or other tech, there are still plenty of savings to be had in the appliance section. Best Buy will be running specials on popular large appliances, up to 60%, and 20-40% off of Samsung and LG HD TVs.

Make It Easier

End of summer also means fall is coming soon, and with it comes the usual outdoor chores like raking the leaves. This year, you might consider treating yourself to something to make that job a little easier, like a leaf blower. Check back for the latest prices at…

Going Somewhere

You might want to book ahead for Thanksgiving or Christmas travel, or one last trip before the long days of winter begin, and the SmartTravel site can help you make your connections at…

Gotta Sleep Sometime

And finally, it’s almost a cliche, but what would a holiday be without a mattress sale? But everybody needs a new mattress at some point, so maybe this is the time for you. Check out what MattressFirm has to offer. Along with great deals on mattresses, they offer free, contactless delivery. Visit them at…
