Labor Day is still a few weeks away, but our trusty friend Amazon has already started rolling out their Labor Day sales and deals. Amazon is known for starting sales way ahead of schedule, but this year, thanks to an excessive stock of inventory and consumers' growing concerns around inflation, they're dropping prices for Labor Day earlier than ever.
Amazon's Labor Day sale reaches far and wide beyond the standard home and furniture Labor Day deals that you might expect to shop during the upcoming holiday weekend. While there are lots of great deals on things like mattresses for instance, that's just the tip of the iceberg. We're already seeing impressive discounts on Apple AirPods, Le Creuset Dutch ovens, and some of our top-rated beauty products, like the Olay Regenerist retinol moisturizer.
Ahead, shop these and more of the best early Labor Day deals on Amazon, including great finds in home and furniture, kitchen appliances, tech and beauty and fashion. And below, we answer some of our readers most frequently asked questions about Labor Day shopping.

Dyson vacuum sales are few and far between. One of their tried and true models, the Dyson Ball Multi-Floor Origin, is currently 34% off for a discount of $155, which is not to be missed because we rarely see Dyson vacuums discounted more than $100 off the original price (even during Black Friday or other major sale holidays). This vacuum cleaner effortlessly steers thanks to Dyson's signature ball axel and glides across different floor types with ease. It works best on carpet and laminate flooring, but it's great for wood floors, too.
Zinus makes some of the most popular mattresses on Amazon thanks to its extremely competitive pricing (most Zinus mattresses are under $500).

Novogratz is one of the most popular furniture brands on Amazon, and their memory foam futon is reasonably affordable and super comfortable.

We're fans of the classic white, but they come in 16 different colors if you want towels to match your bathroom decor.

Ninja's AF101 air fryer was named the best overall air fryer of 2022 by the Good Housekeeping Institute because of its ease of use and because it made food the crispiest in the shortest amount of time.

It's easy to clean, too—the jar and lid are both dishwasher safe.
Cuisinart's stand mixer stood up to another stand mixer you may know in our Good Housekeeping Institute tests, earning the title of best multi-purpose stand mixer thanks to its 12 speed settings that are easy to select with the turn of a dial. It's already a fraction of the price of aforementioned other stand mixer, and now even cheaper during Amazon's Labor Day sale.

Apple AirPods Pro marry the convenience of wireless earbuds with the sound quality of over-ear headphones. They are discounted 28% off for Labor Day this year, which is one of the best discounts we've seen outside of Amazon Prime Day.

And consumer testers agreed—100% of them said it made skin feel softer, and they also ranked it best at brightening.
What items typically have the best Labor Day deals?
"Labor Day is a great time to save on most categories from clothing to home, but this is an especially good time for steep discounts on big ticket items including large appliances and mattresses," said Jessica Teich, Deputy Editor at the Good Housekeeping Institute. "Labor Day weekend is also the best time to snap up end-of-season savings on summer staples, like patio furniture, grills and other outdoor essentials, when retailers are looking to clear out inventory in time for fall."
When do Labor Day sales start on Amazon?
While the steepest savings will likely happen the week leading up to Labor Day, Amazon started marking down prices on seasonal summer essentials and other popular products (like those featured here) on August 1.
Amazon is known for starting sales earlier than other retailers, so we'll be keeping a close watch on the best Labor Day sales and deals on Amazon all month long. That being said, we do expect to see the biggest discounts on reliable Labor Day sale categories like furniture and mattresses beginning September 1, running through September 5, 2022.
Does Amazon deliver on Labor Day?
No, Amazon does not deliver on Labor Day. There are a select few holidays each year that Amazon shuts down its deliveries: New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. So if you need anything from Amazon for your Labor Day weekend fun, be sure to place your orders ahead of time.
