Labor Deal weekend is fast approaching.
Below we have free Labor Day events, Labor Day restaurant offers and of course great Labor Day retail deals. For a full list of fun events that aren’t necessarily free, check out our Labor Day DFW events post.
Beyond the fun, Labor Day can also mean finding some serious bargains! Below is a list of Labor Day deals and some tips to help you shop Labor Day sales like a pro.
What to Buy Over Labor Day Weekend
Expect a Month’s Worth of Deals
Like most holidays, retailers have turned Labor Day into a massive, multi-week extravaganza. Last year, sales started as early as August 7. Do your homework and check out the sales. Look for extra coupon codes or printable coupons to add to the savings.
Browsing online makes it easier to compare product prices across an endless selection of stores and search for any applicable coupon codes. Plus, if you bundle your items right, you might be able to reach a retailer’s free shipping minimum.
Stock Up on Summer Apparel
If popular apparel and accessory retailers offer deals this year that are anything close to last year, you could be in for a real treat. Take advantage of summer clearance sales to stock up on some last-minute summer gear.
Upgrade Your Patio Furniture
It’s is actually a great month for buying new outdoor furniture because deals are at their lowest price of the season and any furniture you buy today you’ll still be able to use throughout August and most of September. Last August we saw major clearance sales with discounts that ranged from 50% to 75% off.
Now is the Time to Buy a New Grill
Save between 25% to 60% off various charcoal- and gas-based grills at major retailers. Deals will include brands like Kenmore, Weber, Char-Broil, and La Hacienda. Accessories are often on sale up to 75% during August as well. If you don’t find a deal on the right grill, many of these sales will spill over into September, particularly around Labor Day.
If you’re planning on traveling this Thanksgiving or Christmas, Labor Day discounts will help you book your holiday trip for less
Labor Day Restaurant Deals
Don’t feel like firing up the grill? You can let someone else cook for you with some of these great offers. We’ll keep adding the deals as they come.
