After a sweltering hot summer, we’re honestly ready to see the hot weather leave. Summer may mean days at the beach and afternoons by the pool, but it also means mosquitos, sweating and sunburns!
Fall is a time of boots and leather jackets and trading in iced tea for pumpkin spice lattes. We mark the changing of the seasons with Labor Day. And a three-day weekend means sales across the board. This year, Labor Day sales are happening everywhere, from clothing stores to mattress brands.
Keep checking back as we continue to update more fabulous sales being held during Labor Day weekend.
What to Expect From Labor Day Sales This Year
Labor Day weekend (Sept. 3-5 in 2022) typically is the time for summer clearance events. Many retailers offer end-of-the-season deals on a wide range of buys: flights, hotels, grills and outdoor furniture. You’ll also see markdowns on summer clothing, including swimsuits, shorts and sandals, as well as on outdoor toys and camping and hiking gear. So whether you’re gearing up for fall or stocking up for summer next year, Labor Day is a good time to snap up products at a low price.
Labor Day is also a three-day weekend, and traditionally, stores offer deals on big-ticket buys like appliances and mattresses during three-day weekends.
When Do Labor Day Sales Start?
We typically see Labor Day messaging and deals launching a week or more prior to the actual holiday. So keep an eye out early, starting the last few days of August.
What Not to Buy During Labor Day Sales
Labor Day serves as an opportunity to save on summer clearance buys, but it’s typically not the very best time to find deals on fall apparel, holiday toys and Halloween decorations. Those items get markdowns after October.

And though you will see deals on appliances, TVs and other electronics, the sales won’t be as good as they will in late October and November closer to Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Check out our guide to the smartest Labor Day buys — and what you should wait on.
