The AirPods Pro are Apple's most advanced wireless earbuds to date. They offer active noise cancellation and silicone tips so you can immerse yourself in the music, or you can use the transparency mode when you need to be more aware of your surroundings. With the charging case (included in this price) the battery can last over 24 hours on a charge, and they're on the list of our top wireless earbuds of the year. You can save close to $70 right now on them at a few retailers.


Looking to grab a pair of decent earbuds, but don't want to break the bank on a pricey pair of Apple AirPods or Beats Studio Buds? Right now, you can pick up a pair of Skullcandy Vinyl true wireless earbuds on sale for $10, 75% off the usual price. They also come with a charging case that can provide up to 10 additional hours of use on top of fully charged earbuds that can be used for 4 hours.

Best Labor Day laptop and tablet deals

Looking for a new laptop or tablet? With so many great Labor Day deals going on at Lenovo, now is the perfect chance to snag a new PC or other piece of tech with up to 67% off doorbuster deals at Lenovo. MyLenovo Rewards members also get 3x points -- up to 6% back - on all purchases.


Microsoft first launched the Surface in 2012, and since then, it has manufactured many different Surface styles. Several of those styles are on sale at Woot right now, which can save you hundreds on these devices. Some of these are in new condition, but most are refurbished or factory-reconditioned computers that work like they're brand-new, but they don't come with the usual hefty price tag of Surfaces. 

Best Labor Day TV deals 


For a limited time, Amazon and Best buy are throwing a free Echo Dot (third-gen) in with select smart Fire TV purchases. Several different models are eligible for the freebie, from 24-inch HD models up to 75-inch 4K-compatible TV sets, with prices starting at just $90.


In the market for a new TV? Among the many available at a discount at Best Buy this weekend is the 50-inch 80 Series QNED 4K smart TV which has $300 off its regular price and comes with three free months of Apple TV Plus. It offers great color, a fast refresh rate, a speedy processor and easy access to all of the streaming services you know and love via its WebOS interface. It also has built-in support for Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa as well as Apple's AirPlay and HomeKit tech.

Vizio's V-Series made its way onto our best TVs list as a runner-up budget option because it comes with Chromecast and Apple AirPlay 2 built in, which plenty of other smart TVs do not. These allow you to stream, or even mirror, content from your phone or computer. It also boasts 4K UHD picture, and an IQ active processor that enhances the quality of any non-4K content.

Best Labor Day smart home deals


A huge variety of Amazon devices are on sale right now with as much as half off regular prices. The Labor Day sale includes popular Echo speakers, Fire TV products, Fire tablets, Kindle e-readers, Eero mesh Wi-Fi systems and more.


Though its design hasn't changed in years, the Nest Learning Thermostat is still one of the best-looking options on the market thanks to its metallic chassis. That's worth considering if your thermostat is in a prominent location in your home. Being Google-owned, Nest's offering ties in with Google Assistant for smart home controls, though it also works with Alexa, and it learns from your habits and preferences as you use it. You can save $60 on one at Best Buy.


There are plenty of robot vacuum deals available this Labor Day, but the iRobot Roomba 694 is among the best. Control it easily via the iRobot app or with Alexa and enjoy automated cleaning at a budget price. At just $200, you're saving close to $75.
