Labor Day is here, and a wide range of deals have dropped across the biggest retailers in the country. It's your last chance to grab a good deal before Black Friday and you won't see outdoor furniture at these prices until next year.

I oversee all the reviews content here at Homes & Gardens so I know exactly which products are worth buying and which aren't worth your time.

I've personally combed through every site and edited all of our Labor Day sales coverage, picking out all of the very best deals found by our writers. These are my picks of the very best in every category.

I've whittled it down, but even with a little selectivity there's more than 60 deals across outdoor furniture, indoor furniture, and a huge range of appliances and mattresses.

My favorite deals

Biggest discount

Emma Original Mattress, Queen |was $1399, now $529 at Emma
This is a huge discount on a mattress we loved on test. There's no better mattress at this price point right now. View Deal

Best vacuum deal

Hoover ONEPWR Pet Max | was $309.99, now $177.99 at Amazon
This is a great saving on a good vacuum cleaner. I have one of these in my apartment and it's pretty good. The anti-hair wrap and runtime could be better, but it's amazing on carpet. While there are certainly better vacuums out there, there aren't any better at this price. If you need a good vacuum ASAP, I'd get this now. View Deal

Outdoor furniture

Ovios 5 Pieces Outdoor Patio Furniture | Was $1899, now $729.99 at Walmart
This discount of more than $1000 is one of the best deals I've seen of any sales event this year, but you'll have to move quickly – stock is selling out fast. View Deal

Outdoor furniture deals

Ovios 5 Pieces Outdoor Patio Furniture

Was $1899, now $729.99 at Walmart
I think this is my favorite deal this Labor Day. It's one of the biggest savings I've ever seen, and great value for a five-piece set that works well for pretty much any patio design. There's even pillows thrown in for free.

Costway 7PCS Patio Rattan Dining Set

Was $999.99, now $499.99 at Target
This table and chairs will seat six, and it now costs less than $500, which is remarkably good value for outdoor furniture.

Superjoe 5 Pcs Outdoor Aluminum Furnitur

Was $1599.99, now $998.99 at Walmart
I love aluminum for garden furniture. It's lightweight, so it's cheap and easy to store, but it's also rustproof, so it weathers well. It won't suit more traditional yards but it's a bargain for sleek, modern yard designs.

AECOJOY Outdoor Furniture Set

Was $1099.99, now $649.99 at Walmart
I really like the lightweight polywicker frame on this furniture set, giving a modern twist on a classic wicker weave. This set is now nearly $500 off for Labor Day.

Amlie Dining Set

Was $1,192, now $222.99 at Wayfair
This rattan set is discounted by nearly $1000, which is an amazing deal. I think this would be great on a porch or a veranda for a little breakfast nook.

Costway 8-Piece Acacia Set

Was $1,629.99, now $809.99 at Target
I've loved this set for a while because it's such great value. It's almost a buy-one-get-one-free deal of two identical sets. It's so much furniture and it gives you lots of different design choices - one big seating area or lots of little seating areas spread throughout the yard.

Elgin Dining Set

Was $1,223, now $369.99 at Wayfair
Another incredible discount: $900 off this set takes it below $400. It's maybe not the most stylish, but it;s incredible value, and would be perfect next to a pool.

Alaterre Furniture Patio Dining Set

Was $1389, now $729.99 at Lowe's
I've seen sets that look like this for more than triple the price at high-end furniture makers. It's a beautiful set of luxury furniture at a much more reasonable price.

Direct Wicker Patio Dining Set

Was $6299, now $4809 at Lowe's
It's still expensive, but a nearly $1500 discount is up there with the biggest I've seen this Labor Day. It's a little over-the-top, but just imagine drinks out on the patio with a built-in fire to keep you warm.

Best Choice Products Modular Outdoor Sofa

Was $1099.99, now $699.99 at Walmart
Modular sofas are so versatile. This set can be arranged as a pseudo-conversation pit as above, or changed into a long L-shaped sectional, or broken up into lots of different mixed seating for parties. This gray and navy set is perfect for sitting poolside.

Syngar Rattan Patio Sofa Set

Was $1299.99, now $499.99 at Walmart
This unbelievable $800 saving is one of the best deals I've seen this Labor Day. For the price of some outdoor chairs, you can grab a 3-seat sofa, a chair, and ottoman and a coffee table.

Costway Outdoor Adirondack Chair

Was $136, now $95.99 at Walmart
Sure, it's not the best deal in the world, but it's hard to beat an American classic like this Adirondack chair. Made from hardwearing acacia, this chair is lighter and cheaper than the equivalent in teak and has none of the potential ethical concerns.

Mattress deals

Emma Original Mattress

Was $1399, now $529 at Emma
This is one of our favorite box mattresses, conveniently delivered in a box to your door. It has an amazing 50% off at the moment, though this deal has been on for a while, and we don't expect it to go anywhere.

Our Emma Mattress review has more details.

Saatva Classic

Was $1,995, now $1,695 at Saatva
The Saatva classic mattress is our number one mattress. It's a hybrid mattress that will suit everyone, and can be customised to your exact preferences. It's simply the most comfortable bed we've ever tested.

More details in our Saatva Classic mattress review 

Nectar Original foam mattress

Was $1049, now $699 at Nectar
Our pick for the best memory foam mattress around, and best mattress for back pain, the Nectar memory foam mattress is now 33% off. It's anecdotal, so take it with a pinch of salt, but this mattress really helped our tester's fibromyalgia.

There's more detail in our full Nectar Memory Foam Mattress review.

Leesa Original

Was $1299, now $1002 at Amazon
The Leesa Original all-foam mattress is our best mattress for side sleepers. We think it's the ideal combination of cooling, contouring, and pressure-relieving support. It's on sale at Leesa too, but I've found it for $97 cheaper than their sale price at Amazon. However, a word of warning: this bed is incredibly soft. If you love a firm bed, you'll find this uncomfortable.

Find out more in our Leesa Original Mattress review

Dreamcloud Luxury Hybrid

Was $1,199, now $799 at DreamCloud
This hybrid stands out from others on the market because it's so much cheaper. However, on test we found a luxurious, comfortable mattress that's a great compromise for couples.

Casper Wave Hybrid Snow Mattress

Was $3,395, now $2,546,25 at Casper
If you're a hot sleeper, you've just met the perfect mattress. Recent heatwaves have shown it really pays off to have a cooling mattress, and in our estimation this is the best you can get. On test, it felt cold to the touch. It's still expensive, but a nearly $850 saving is always worth having.

Refrigerator deals

Not only is this a sleek refrigerator, it has a top freezer too. The generous 20 cubic foot capacity paired with adjustable shelves will keep all your groceries fresh and crisp.

LG Refrigerator

Was $2,099, now $1,598 at Home Depot
LG makes some of the best refrigerators on the market. This stainless steel model looks simple, but the ice maker, touch dispenser, and super cool freezer are some of the best available.

GE Refrigerator

Was $4,199, now $2,999 at Lowe's
This French door refrigerator is perfect for families. With nearly 30 cubic feet of space, this can hold all of your groceries as well as producing ice. I love the bottom freezer drawer too.

Washer Dryer Deals

LG WashTower

This is my favorite washer dryer combo. Stacked on top of each other with a central control panel, these are efficient, smart, and super quick. They're a bestseller at Home Depot.

Dishwasher deals

Miele Dishwasher

This stylish dishwasher has beauty and brains. With 16 place settings and a 12 hour delay start you can ensure that you maximise your energy usage, especially with Café's Energy Star rating.

Small appliance deals

Ninja XL Max

Was $169.99, now $119.99 at QVC
With a $50 saving, this is an excellent buy. Ninja makes some exceptional kitchen appliances and this air fryer is certainly one of them. The perfect size for all the family, I love the viewing window too.

NutriBullet Personal Blender

Was $109.99, now $69.95 at Wayfair
I'm NutriBullet's biggest fan. This is the blender I use every morning. It makes reliably smooth drinks and is already reduced by $40 at Wayfair - that's almost 40% off the normal price.

KitchenAid 9 Cup Food Processor

Was $121, now $99.98 at QVC
Thisis the full-sized version of the mini chopper. This versatile food processor is available in a range of colors. Not only is it designed to suit any décor, it's also now under $100. That's a decent price.

Breville Bambino Espresso Machine

Was $333.95, now $299 at Walmart

Aicok Slow Masticating Juicer

Was $219.99, now $59.99 at Walmart9
I haven't tested the Aicok, but I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't share this saving. With $160 off, this is a steal. We've heard good things, so while I can't vouch for it, it's well worth considering.

Dyson Air Purifier and Fan

Was $547, now $349.98 at QVC
This fan is incredible. Laura has one in her home and loves it, especially with living in a city. It's currently reduced by nearly $200 at QVC, so don't hang around.

KitchenAid 600 Series

Was $549.99, now $480 at Wayfair
KitchenAid have dominated the stand mixer market and for a good reason - they're exceptional. I'm still yet to use a better stand mixer. the only drawback is the price, so if you can ever save money on one, I'd recommend that you snap up the deal.

Vacuum cleaner deals

Dyson V8

Was $469.99, now $369.99 at Wayfair
I love a Dyson deal because it can be hard to justify paying the full price tag. With a reduction of $100, the V8 is at the top of my vacuum deals list. It's an excellent vacuum, now at an excellent price.

Hoover ONEPWR Pet Max

Was $309.99, now $183.99 at Amazon
This is a great saving on an already cheap vacuum. I have on at home and it does a pretty good job. The battery isn't amzing and it wraps up long hair, but the performance on carpet nearly matches a Dyson. There are better vacuums out there, but you won't find this quality at this price.

Best cordless vacuum

Shark Vertex Pro

Was $399, now $199 at Walmart
I've tested vacuums for years, and this is still one of my favorites. It offers near-Dyson performance at a much more reasonable price, and now it's even less. I personally think the compact folding storage is a bit of a gimmick, but being able to bend at the neck makes it unbelievably easy to clean under furniture.

Dyson Outsize

Was $599.99, now $499.99 at Walmart
This Dyson is one of the best vacuums for pet hair. The Outsize plus is kitted out with all of Dyson's most desirable features: a spotlight, timer, range of vacuum functions, and long battery life.

Best upright

Dyson Ball Animal 2

Was $499.99, now $279.99 at Walmart
One of my favorite insider tips with Dyson is to grab a Ball Animal 2 around sales periods. Sure, it's an older vacuum and it's pretty clumsy, but if all you need is a powerful vacuum to totally transform your floors, this will do the job for hundreds of dollars less than a top-line Dyson.

ONSON Robot Vacuum Cleaner

Was $619.99, now $109.99 at Walmart
This is one of the biggest discounts I've seen this Labor Day: a huge $510 discount off this robot vacuum cleaner. You hardly ever see robot vacuums at the $100 mark, but a word of warning: we haven't tested this, so I can't vouch for it.


When is Labor Day?

It's today (September 4), which means that all the best deals end at midnight. If you don't want to be disappointed, make sure you secure your favorite deals before midnight.

What's the best Labor Day deal?

The one you need, but don't want to buy at full price. If your bed looks a little tired, the bed deal today is the one that replaces your old bed with a new, discounted, luxury model.

Final Thoughts

Labor Day is great, but the biggest discounts on mattresses and kitchen appliances are still to come. While Black Friday won't see many deals on outdoor furniture, it offered huge discounts on a wide range of bedding, tech, and cooking gadgets.
