A lot of Labor Day sales kicked off earlier this week, and more are continuing to arrive ahead of Monday. Below, we’ve rounded up the best of the best Labor Day deals and special offers, but keep checking back throughout the three-day weekend as we continue to add more select products and sale items.

And while you’re hunting around for Labor Day deals, here are a few others you should consider checking out:

It’s not the best Sling deal we’ve seen, but it’s still good if you want a cheap month of streaming goodness. Another option: Prepay for two months of Sling and get a free AirTV Mini streaming device — an $80 value.


This is the lowest price on record for Segway’s foldable scooter, which can reach speeds of 15 mph and travel up to 15 miles on a charge. It weighs just under 28 pounds and incorporates both mechanical and electric braking systems.

The X1 Carbon is a best-in-class ultraportable that combines premium design appeal with business-grade privacy and security features. Read CNET’s review of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7.

There are a lot more deals — see all the Lenovo laptops on sale on the site’s Labor Day sale page. Here are a few others to look out for:


When: Right now (through Sept. 7)

The LG OLED CX TV has the hands-down best picture quality we’ve ever tested at CNET, and this 77-inch version of the TV is on sale for $3,800 at Best Buy. That’s its best price ever and makes it competitive on price with much less expensive sets. 


When: Right now

The Doorbell 3 is the latest version of the Ring and has only been available since the start of summer. Under the hood it features dual 2.4 and 5GHz Wi-Fi for better streaming video. Amazon is selling it for $50 off, but also throws in the $90 Amazon Echo Show 5 for free. 


When: Right now

The Fixd is a sensor that plugs into your car’s onboard diagnostic port (OBD2, for short). The sensor sends detailed information to an app on your phone to let you know about the health and well-being of your car. Regularly $60, you can get it right now (while supplies last) for just $20. 

Fixd says the sensor works with both internal combustion and hybrid cars, and is able to diagnose about 7,000 error codes, which it tries to translate into plain English so you don’t just know what component is failing, but how severe the problem is and what the implications of the issue are.


When: Right now (though Sept. 7)

Polk has reduced the price of its S2 ultraslim soundbar for Labor Day, now $50 off its list price. It’s been cheaper — the S2 was as low as $160 in the spring, but this is still a good deal. It connects to your TV with HDMI ARC so you can control everything with a single remote control. It features five full-range drivers and a wireless subwoofer, supports Bluetooth and specifically targets center-channel audio to make sure dialogue is clear and understandable. 


When: Right now (through Sept. 7)

Wireless chargers are a dime a dozen (not literally, of course) but Courant makes chargers that elevate your desktop (again, not literally). Wrapped in a pebble-grain Italian leather and available in an assortment of colors, these are snazzy. Right now, everything is 25{8c54160eed80eb00ac4f5d74c8785e95142d89daf570f201b81dc7fdc31059f3} off sitewide, with the discount applied automatically at checkout, and monogramming is included for free.

When: Right now (through Sept. 7)

The Tribit QuietPlus 72 headphones are usually priced $70, but they’re on sale for $35 during Labor Day when you apply the coupon on the product page and add promo code LBDQPLUS at checkout. These compact over-the-ear headphones charge via USB-C and deliver about 30 hours of runtime between charges. More importantly, these are noise-canceling headphones that Tribit says can block up to 32dB of ambient sound. 


When: Right now 

Ring is running a Labor Day deal on four of its second-generation alarm kits. They’re all 20{8c54160eed80eb00ac4f5d74c8785e95142d89daf570f201b81dc7fdc31059f3} off for Labor Day, so you’ll save anywhere from $40 to $70, depending upon which one you choose. Here are the select items on sale:


When: Right now (through Sept. 8)

The Eargo Neo HiFi invisible in-ear hearing aids are available for $2,700 when you apply promo code LABORDAY20 at checkout. That’s $250 off the list price.

That’s $2,700 for the pair of hearing aids and all the accessories. If you’re thinking in earbud terms that might sound like a lot of money, but hearing aid wearers are used to substantially higher prices. In fact, it’s not unusual to pay about this much for each individual earbud rather than the complete set. But despite the far more affordable price, the Neo HiFi aids are designed to deliver really high sound quality, with features such as wind noise reduction and feedback cancellation. They’re also fully invisible in-ear buds, and rely on a “flexi palm design,” which are little treelike spikes that position the buds in your ear.


When: Right now (through Sept. 7)

BlazePods is an at-home, pro-level training system. Using interactive, touch-sensitive pods, you can choose from among an enormous library of workouts and games to work on balance, coordination, core, flexibility, power, spatial awareness, speed, stamina and more. With kids schooling from home and adults working from home — and gyms still closed in most locations — this is a great solution for exercising in place. 

During this Labor Day sale, all kits are 20{8c54160eed80eb00ac4f5d74c8785e95142d89daf570f201b81dc7fdc31059f3} off sitewide. Exception: Bundles aren’t included in the sale.


When: Right now (through Sept. 7)

Roborock’s newest cordless stick vacuum is the H6, and it’s $50 off for Labor Day week. This new vacuum generates a respectable 25,000 Pa of suction and can run for a maximum of about 90 minutes in eco-mode (or 10 minutes running full-bore in max mode). It features HEPA air filtration and weighs in at just 3 pounds. 


When: Right now (through Sept. 7)

Regularly priced at $270, the E4 is one of Roborock’s most popular models, particularly among pet owners thanks to its robust 2,000 Pa of suction in carpet boost mode. The vacuum’s large battery can run for about 200 minutes on a charge (over 2,000 square feet) and Roborock cites an oversized dustbin so you don’t need to empty it as often.

The Roborock E4 is about $50 off during the sale, selling for $209 when you apply promo code ROBOROCKE45 at checkout. 


When: Right now (through Sept. 7)

Roborock’s newest robot is a combination vacuum and mop, and it’s $45 off for the holiday weekend when you apply promo code ROBOS6MAXV at checkout. 

The S6 MaxV includes a pair of cameras and uses what it calls “ReactiveAI Obstacle Avoidance” to identify and avoid obstacles that it encounters on the floor, so it goes around toys, shoes and the inevitable puppy accident, rather than plowing through it and turning a small mess into a big disaster. 

It has a maximum suction of 2,500 Pa and uses lidar for accurate, optimized navigation and automatic room recognition. It’s app and voice controllable, and the S6 MaxV can be programmed with up to 10 no-go zones, 10 no-mop zones and 10 invisible barriers on each level of your home.


When: Right now (through Sept. 7)

Save 20{8c54160eed80eb00ac4f5d74c8785e95142d89daf570f201b81dc7fdc31059f3} on any NutriBullet product when you use promo code LABOR20 at checkout. NutriBullet has long been a favorite for fast blending and it receives consistently high ratings at both Amazon and Best Buy. This Labor Day weekend sale includes all NutriBullet blenders, from personal models to full-size blenders, juicers and more. 


When: Right now (through Sept. 8)

Zagg is having a sitewide sale from Sept. 4-8. You can take 25{8c54160eed80eb00ac4f5d74c8785e95142d89daf570f201b81dc7fdc31059f3} off any purchase including phone cases, keyboard covers, power banks and more. 

Jackbox Games

When: Right now (through Sept. 8)

I make no secret of my adoration of Jackbox games like You Don’t Know Jack, Quiplash and Drawful. They’re hilarious party games that everyone plays using their own phone as a combination remote control/buzzer while crowded around the TV. For Labor Day, everything on the site is marked down with some prices up to 50{8c54160eed80eb00ac4f5d74c8785e95142d89daf570f201b81dc7fdc31059f3} off.
