Your Labor Day weekend plans probably don’t resemble last year’s, but the best Labor Day sales of 2020 actually kind of do. In many cases, they’re significantly better than in years past. Almost every retailer is having a sale. As we do around every big holiday, the GQ Recommends team has applied our most discerning eyes to these discounts and gathered all the the tech, appliance, furniture, home decor, kitchen, and outdoor sales that actually pass the sniff test. If you’re looking to kit out your apartment—you know, that place where you spend literally all of your time now—these are the best Labor Day sales worth your hard-earned cash.
The Best Labor Day Tech and Appliance Sales
Amazon: Amazon’s biggest sales are usually reserved for bigger events, like Prime Day or Cyber Week, but they have a few random tech and appliance deals available this weekend.
Apple: Apple isn’t running its own Labor Day sale, but if you’re a student or educator you can get free AirPods with the purchase of a new Mac or iPad through the company’s Back to School offer.
Best Buy: Best Buy’s Labor Day sale is stocked with TVs (as low as $100!), laptops, phones, and gaming consoles.
Dyson: Several of Dyson’s vacuums, including the Dyson V8 Absolute Pro, and other home gadgets, including its fans, air purifiers, and the Lightcyle lamp (which we’ve reviewed), are on sale for Labor Day. The discounts aren’t enormous, but Dyson rarely discounts its new gear this much.
Satechi: Starting on Friday, you can use the code “SATLDAY15” to get 15% off any all accessories. It’s a good opportunity to finally get that dongle you need for your new desk.
Tineco: Theses affordable but still very capable cordless stick vacuums are on sale at Amazon this weekend. The top of the line Pure One S12, which can go toe to toe with similar Dyson models, is $70 off, while the company’s cheaper A10 models are slightly less discounted.

If you spend $2,200, you get $250 off. If you spend $2,600, you get $300 off. If you spend $3,000, you get $400 off. And if you spend over $4,000, you can get $500 off.
