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.

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.

NBCUniversal's streaming platform, Peacock, has great deals to offer new subscribers this Labor Day. You can get a year of Premium for just $20 by using the promo code ONEYEAR when you sign up.

It's usually $5 a month or $50 a year, so that saves you $3 a month or $30 a year.

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.

Which Labor Day sales are the best?

There are plenty of competing Labor Day sales and deciding which is best for you to shop will depend on what you're hoping to buy. 

Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart are generally good starting points if tech and smart home purchases are on your mind with stores like Lowe's, Home Depot and Overstock being the places to begin your hunt for home and garden products. 

Don't rule out more niche retailers like B&H Photo, Dell, HP and GameStop, though, if their Labor Day promotions suit your needs. You can also shop direct at your favorite brands for Labor Day deals.

When do Labor Day sales end?

Labor Day 2022 falls on Monday, Sept. 5 but not all sales begin and end on that date. Most have been live a while before Labor Day itself rolled around and, though some do end tonight, many will continue for a little while after Labor Day. It's worth checking the stated end for any Labor Day sales you are interested in shopping so you don't miss out as the length of these sales can differ greatly.

Should I wait for Black Friday sales?

Labor Day sales offer some of the best savings at this time of year, sitting nicely between Memorial Day sales and Black Friday. If you need something now, particularly furniture or yard equipment, Labor Day is a great time to buy, with end-of-summer pricing applying to a lot of those types of products. 

Black Friday is the biggest sale of the year, though, and if you can afford to wait the extra couple of months you could potentially get more for your money. That being said, rumors abound of a second Prime Day sale or "Prime Early Access Sale" slated for October, which could kick off the holiday shopping season much earlier and may mean even less time between Labor Day and fall sales. 

How do I make the most of Labor Day sales? 

Before diving into Labor Day sales, the best thing to do is narrow down exactly what is on your shopping list this year. That way, you can identify the best retailers to start your search and avoid being distracted by the thousands of deals that will bombard you as you explore the many different Labor Day sales out there.
