Labor Day is still a few days away, but our 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 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.

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.
