Labor Day is on Sept. 6, and retailers typically observe the federal holiday with weekend sales. Traditionally, these events include discounts on items for the home, such as mattresses and appliances.
In past years, these deals have happened at brands such as Purple, Serta, Casper and more. Check these sellers again this year if you’re in the market for a new bed.
But some retailers have been facing foam shortages, which could affect prices and availability of mattresses. When in doubt about a price, do a Google search to see how much a specific mattress was previously selling for.
If Labor Day is known for home deals, Black Friday is known for electronics deals. Black Friday, arguably the biggest shopping day of the year, always falls on the day after Thanksgiving. This year, that’s Nov. 26.
Hold off on buying any electronics this year in anticipation of what’s coming in the months ahead. Last year, Best Buy offered savings of $220 on a 70-inch Samsung TV and $90 off JBL headphones for Black Friday. Plus, laptops started at $119.99.
