Labor Day Sale, What’s Worth Buying?


BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) – This year, with the exception of Christmas, Labor Day weekend is the last major three-day holiday weekend of the year.

Whether you’re trying to find end-of-summer savings or getting a head start on Christmas gift shopping, there are a few retail categories you’ll save money on.

The shopping experts at RetailMeNot did most of the research for you to find the best sellers.

It’s a good time to buy appliances.

Individual refrigerators, washers, dryers and dishwashers will be unmarked.

RetailMeNot expects even bigger discounts on appliance bundles, like a washer and dryer set.

Depending on brand, make and model, shoppers can save up to 40% on appliance bundles.

If you don’t want to prepay for these big-ticket items, retailers may offer special Labor Day financing offers.

It’s always worth asking store employees to see what kind of specials they can offer this weekend.

It’s also a great time to save big on clearance clothing.

It’s the time of year when retailers start shedding summer inventory to make way for fall clothing.

Major stores like Target, Walmart, Macy’s, Kohl’s and Old Navy are expected to offer sales through Labor Day.

On the other hand, RetailMeNot recommends against buying fall clothes.

Since new merchandise is now hitting the floor, you’ll likely be paying top dollar until Black Friday when the winter apparel releases.

Shopping experts also recommend waiting to buy tech gear or TVs this weekend.

It might be tempting to buy now as the football season is about to begin, but it’s worth waiting until Black Friday for better deals.

RetailMeNot said that during the month of November, Amazon, Walmart, Target and Best Buy will match each other’s lowest prices on smart home gadgets, smartwatches, fitness trackers, computers laptops and tablets.
