Summer is officially coming to a close and Labor Day is coming up on Monday, September 1. You know what that means – lots of great sales will be going on this weekend! Here’s CouponPal’s guide to the best things to buy this Labor Day weekend to get the most bang for your buck.
Grills & Outdoor Goods
Since the season of hanging out in the backyard is coming to a close, many stores are holding sales on grills, outdoor furniture, and other outdoor living items. Right now you can save up to 35% on patio furniture from RSTOutdoor.com, and 20% off grills at Lowe’s.
Jewelry & Watches
Most of the popular holidays for giving jewelry gifts – Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and Christmas – are a while away, so jewelry sites are offering some good discounts during September. Reeds Jewelers is currently offering 40% off select watches, as well as 60% off their jewelry sale. Zales is also running a Labor Day special, letting you save an extra 15% off their already reduced jewelry prices.
The weather will soon go from warm and sunny to...well...less pleasant, and with that biking season will be over. Right now bike stores are getting rid of this year’s models to make room for new bikes and gear, so September is the perfect time to get a bargain on that bike you’ve had your eye on all summer. Nashbar.com is a good place to take advantage of bike deals – during their Final Summer Blowout, you can save up to 75% on bikes, bike parts, biking apparel, and biking accessories.
Soon it will be time to put your sweaters and coats back on, and leave those cute summer dresses and comfy summer shorts in the closet to wait for next year. In the effort to get rid of summer stock and make room for new fall styles, stores are offering some deep discounts on summer apparel. American Eagle is offering 25% off their already-discounted summer apparel with a code, while PacSun has swimsuits and beachwear discounted up to 70%. Sites like OldNavy.com, Target.com, and Kohls.com are also running Labor Day 2014 discounts. Stock up now, and you’ll be all ready once summer 2015 rolls around!
September means back to school season, which of course means everyone needs new outfits to show off at school. If you haven’t already taken your kids clothing shopping, now is the time to do it, with Labor Day deals taking the prices on kids’ clothes even lower. Snag clothes for boys, girls, and toddlers at over 65% off during the final summer sale at RUUM American Kid’s Wear, or get up to 50% off all kid’s clothes at OldNavy.com.
School Supplies & Tech
In addition to kids’ clothes, school and office supplies are also available with major discounts around Labor Day. Not only can you get great offers on notebooks, paper, ink, backpacks, calculators, and other regular school supplies, you’ll also find deals on technology. Right now at Staples.com, you can get $150 off Dell laptops and desktops, plus $15 off all education orders with a coupon code. The Microsoft Store is also offering discounts up to $400 on PCs and tablets.
With all these savings, it looks like the best way to spend Labor Day weekend this year is by shopping online. But make sure you get outside at least a little and enjoy some of the last summer evenings of the year!
