Another summer has come and gone, and Labor Day is upon us! And with it, comes sales — lots of sales. This weekend, head over to Amazon for the Amazon Labor Day sale 2022, ripe with tons of deals on some of the Good Housekeeping Institute's top-tested products that are too good to miss.
Amazon's Labor Day sale reaches far and wide, way beyond the standard home and furniture Labor Day deals that you might expect. 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 tech like TVs and Apple AirPods, kitchen classics like Le Creuset Dutch ovens and new obsessions like a nugget ice maker, 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 the home, furniture, kitchen appliances, tech, beauty and fashion categories. And below, we answer some of our readers most frequently asked questions about Labor Day shopping.

Take 36% off the Dyson Ball Multi-Floor Origin HEPA Vacuum, which is an even bigger discount than we saw during Amazon Prime Day.

Take 29% off the Novogratz Tallulah Memory Foam Futon, a functional and highly-rated futon that's both stylish and affordable.

Best Labor Day Home Deals on Amazon
Dyson vacuum sales are few and far between. One of their tried and true models, the Dyson Ball Multi-Floor Origin, is currently 36% off for a discount of nearly $160. This is a deal not to be missed — 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 various floor types with ease. It works best on carpet and laminate flooring, but it's great for wood floors, too.
Another great Labor Day vacuum deal, the Shark APEX Upright Vacuum cleaner is 16% off right now. This vacuum is a Good Housekeeping Institute favorite — it was named the best overall vacuum of 2022 and the best HEPA vacuum of 2022. In our last Cleaning Lab test, it exhibited very good cleaning performance on both carpeting and bare floors and was one of the quietest models we tested. The entire vacuum is sealed for maximum dust retention and the HEPA filter is washable and reusable, unlike most models that need replacing. Pet owners will appreciate the brush roll that's designed to minimize messy hair tangles.
Zinus makes some of the most popular mattresses on Amazon thanks to its extremely competitive pricing (most Zinus mattresses are under $500). If the price seems too good to be true, check out some of the 16,000+ 5-star reviews that claim the mattress alleviates back pain and holds up over years of use.
This air conditioner unit was named the best overall portable air conditioner by the Good Housekeeping Institute because of its dual hose system helps to cool the room quicker and more efficiently. And an added bonus: It also works as a heater and dehumidifier (that's 3 appliances in one!).
Novogratz is one of the most popular furniture brands on Amazon, and their memory foam futon is reasonably affordable and super comfortable. It's great to keep in a spare room or if you regularly host guests and need extra sleeping space in your home. Plus, it comes in five different velvet color options so you can choose whatever best matches your existing decor.
This is the best-selling towel set on Amazon, and it has been one of our go-to towel sets for hotel-style towels at home for years. It's discounted an impressive 45% off right now for $39.99, a fraction of the price of other complete towel sets of the same quality. We're fans of the classic white, but they come in 16 different colors if you want towels to match your bathroom decor.
Tear-resistant? Check. Pill-resistant? Check. Soft, inexpensive, well-fitted and washes well? All checks here. Over 300,000 Amazon reviewers agree that these best-selling sheets are worth the hype for so many different reasons. And over Labor Day weekend, they're even more affordable thanks to a 25% off discount.
Best Labor Day Kitchen Appliances Deals on Amazon
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. This air fryer can remove moisture when you use it as a dehydrator and can go as low as 105 degrees.
If you're a fan of the small, crunchy nugget-style ice (also known as pellet ice) popularized by Sonic and Chick-fil-A, a nugget ice maker is the appliance you never knew you needed. In addition to being more chewable than its cubed counterpart, nugget ice also cools down drinks faster while maintaining the optimal flavor in your beverage. This machine has a large ice storage basket that holds almost 5 pounds of ice at a time, so you'll never run out of ice when you need it.
The Good Housekeeping Institute ranked the Breville The Fresh and Furious Countertop Blender as the best blender for smoothies in 2022. It has settings for both regular smoothies and green smoothies, both of which produce silky smooth juice-bar-quality results in about a minute (the green smoothie setting yields a creamy texture with no sign of fibrous kale or spinach). 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.
Le Creuset makes highly coveted kitchenware and it rarely, if ever, goes on sale. This Labor Day, their iconic Dutch oven is 20% off in select colors like Flame, Caribbean and Cerise, which translates to a discount of nearly $90 off. If you'd like a smaller option, the oval 3.5-quart Sauteuse oven is also on sale.
The Calphalon Classic 10-Piece Nonstick Cookware Set is not your run-of-the-mill nonstick cookware. It is made of anodized aluminum which conducts heat more evenly and is more durable against scraping and peeling, it is oven safe up to 450ºF, the pots come with pour spouts, the lids have an integrated strainer and there are fill lines on the sides for convenient measuring.
Labor Day is a great time for coffee lovers. There are tons of espresso machines and single-serve brewers on sale right now, including Nespresso machines. Nespresso is a great entry point for those who are curious about brewing espresso at home, and this particular model comes complete with a milk frother so you can easily make your favorite coffee shop drinks like cappuccinos and lattes.
Best Labor Day Tech Deals on Amazon
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. They also have multiple settings that allow for different listening experiences: noise cancellation mode blocks out virtually all environmental sound, transparency mode heightens environmental noise so you can hear what's happening around you, or you can turn noise control off altogether for a natural audio balance.
The second generation AirPods are your standard AirPods. They are the most popular AirPods on Amazon by a long shot, with more than 525,000 reviews and counting. They are also the most affordable — and right now they are super cheap at only $119.98. While this model doesn't have the latest bells and whistles like noise cancellation or spatial audio, they do boast excellent sound quality, automatic pairing with your iPhone and in-ear detection. This model comes with a wired charging case (lightning cable compatible).
This is Amazon's best-selling OLED TV with a resounding 4.8-star average rating from reviewers, and it is almost $1,000 off right now. This discount is close to the lowest price ever recorded for this TV, when it was discounted 40% off during Amazon Prime Day 2022.
For a much more affordable TV, opt for the Insignia F30 Series LED 4K UHD Smart TV. It has 2160-pixel ultra HD resolution so movies and TV shows are crystal clear, it is designed for streaming with built-in Amazon Fire TV, and it has DTS sound (which is a premium equalizer that creates realistic and immersive audio) so you don't need a sound bar. If you've been doing your TV research, you'll know that a 55-inch 4K UHD smart TV for under $300 is a rare deal.
With a smart thermostat, you'll never have to worry about forgetting to turn off the A/C again. The Google Nest smart thermostat is 30% off right now bringing the total to just under $100, which is a great deal for any smart thermostat.
If you're looking to upgrade your streaming capabilities to 4K, the Fire TV Stick is a great option. Aside from top-notch picture and sound, the remote comes equipped with Alexa, so you can start watching your favorite show, change the volume, or turn off the TV completely hands-free.
While it's not the most exciting purchase, an external hard drive is a must-have for backing up you and your family's phones, computers, and other devices that use local storage. With Western Digital's massive 16TB hard drive, you'll never have to worry about running out of storage (plus, it's the most-discounted option). If you're only backing up a couple devices, opt for the smaller 4TB hard drive, which is also discounted for 23% off for $99.99.
Best Labor Day Beauty & Fashion Deals on Amazon
If you're not familiar with the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer, it is an insanely popular hair dryer brush and a best-seller on Amazon. It has over 300,000 (!!) reviews, 78% of which are 5-star ratings, and it claims to achieve smooth blowouts in half the time of a regular hair dryer. Its volumizing namesake comes from its ability to easily place the dryer close to the scalp, beneath the hair, for that swingy, salon-coiffed look.
Good news, Crocs lovers: Crocs is selling retired colors on Amazon with a major discount off the original price! Get the classic clog in colors that you won't be able to find anywhere else (and that won't match others in the sea of Crocs-wearers out there) like pistachio green.
In another incredible Labor Day shoe deal on Amazon, Meghan Markle's favorite running sneakers, the Adidas Ultraboost 21, are nearly 50% off right now. Meghan isn't the only celebrity who's been spotted in the shoe — Hailey Bieber and Harry Styles have sported them, too — a further testament to comfort and versatility of this particular Adidas sneaker.
A skin-smoothing retinol treatment and a night moisturizer in one, Olay's Regenerist moisturizer was the winner of the Good Housekeeping Beauty Lab’s anti-aging night cream test. Our expert lab testers noted benefits such as noticeable wrinkle reduction, and skin brightening, firming, and softening. 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 are happening right now, the week of Labor Day, Amazon started marking down prices on seasonal summer essentials and other popular products on August 1.
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.
