This weekend marks the end of summer, which is sad by all accounts. But for most people, summer has felt over for a week or more — it’s been a mild August in many parts of the country, the kids are back in school, and work seems to be picking back up. Still, facing cooler temperatures isn’t fun — which is why we’re bringing you a round of Labor Day deals to lift your spirits. Long weekends are some of the best times to save, and Labor Day is no different. Here’s what to look for:
Best Buy. Major appliances are up to 30% off at the electronics retailer this weekend, with free delivery, removal and recycling tacked on to purchases of $429 or more.
Rugs USA. The beauty of buying a rug online is you don’t have to carry it home — especially when there’s free shipping involved. This online rug seller is offering that, plus 80% off select area rugs.
Overstock.com. Most of the site’s stock is already discounted, but for Labor Day they’re sweetening the pot: an extra 10% off thousands of items, including furniture, home decor, bedding and bath.
