Year after year, Lowe's has one of the most impressive Labor Day home sales — and thankfully, the 2022 Lowe's Labor Day sale is no exception. The one-stop home improvement shop started rolling out impressive end-of-summer savings early in August, and now that the holiday weekend is upon us, the savings are even steeper. That's good news for shoppers who are concerned about inflation and looking for a deal, because you can check off your home fall refresh checklist without breaking the bank.
The hallmark of Lowe's Labor Day sale is major discounts on appliances. Samsung kitchen appliances like refrigerators and ranges are up to 35% off, including $700 off one of the most popular French door refrigerators. GE electric washers and dryers are also 24% off, and when purchased together you'll save up to $500. It's also a good chance to buy patio furniture, grills or complete any outdoor projects around the home that you've been dreaming of all summer but haven't gotten around to yet.
Jessica Teich, Deputy Editor at the Good Housekeeping Institute, says that Lowe's Labor Day sale is "a great time to deck out your patio for next year’s season, since these seasonal items are typically more expensive in the spring." You still have a solid couple of months to enjoy your outdoor space, plus everything will be ready for next year, and you'll get the job done for less.

Best Labor Day Appliance Deals at Lowe's
Samsung makes some of the most popular French door refrigerators on the market, but they don't come cheap and rarely go on sale outside of Black Friday. This 28.2 cubic foot model is spacious, has a built-in ice maker, and the stainless steel has a fingerprint-resistant coating. Not to mention, the 32% off discount translates to a whopping $700 off! If you've been considering a fridge upgrade, now's your chance.
The Samsung appliance sale continues with this freestanding electric range with convection oven, complete with a built-in air fryer. It also incorporates the latest smart technology: it is Wi-Fi- and voice command-enabled, meaning you can preheat or adjust the time and temperature of your oven hands-free with your voice or remotely using your smartphone.
The GE front-load washer with UltraFresh — a vent system that eliminates excess moisture to keep your washing machine and laundry fresh — has an impressive 4.6-star rating from nearly 6,000 customer reviews. The accompanying GE front-load dryer is also on sale for 24% off. When purchased together, you could save up to $500 off.
If you're constantly short on freezer space, a standalone freezer is the way to go. They provide ample storage space for frozen foods, whether you buy meats in bulk, want to preserve excess produce to enjoy all year round, or are stocking up on meal prep. This upright freezer from Whirlpool has the same storage space as many chest-style models but with a much smaller footprint, so you can make room for it in tight spaces like a pantry or an already-full garage.
Best Labor Day Patio Furniture Deals at Lowe's
This wicker patio furniture set is the definition of one-stop shopping. It includes one three-seat sofa, four armchairs, two large ottomans that can work as end tables, footrests, or additional seating, and cushions for all the seating. You won't have to buy one extra thing to complete your outdoor living space, besides perhaps the perfect outdoor rug to anchor all the furniture.
The table and chairs in this luxe outdoor dining set by OVE Decors is made of weatherproof grooved aluminum panels for maximum durability, then the perimeter of the table and chair backs and armrests are wrapped with woven gray wicker. The large 67-inch dining table has seating room for six, meaning you'll likely have plenty of space for long outdoor meals with a grand table setting to match. Plus, it comes with matching gray cushions for the seats.
An oversized umbrella like this one will provide a shady area large enough for either the 7-piece outdoor living room set or the dining table above. This umbrella has three tiers with dual wind vents between each tier that keep the umbrella stable in high winds by allowing air to flow through. It also has a crank to easily adjust the angle of the umbrella in the direction of the sun.
You can't go wrong with a hammock — it's a fun addition to any outdoor space and will give you and your guests a cozy spot to relax. This one has great reviews from Lowe's customers (a 4.7-star average) and includes a classic braided rope hammock, a stylish multicolored striped hammock pad and pillow, and a 12-foot heavy-duty steel hammock stand.
Best Labor Day Grill Deals at Lowe's
Labor Day is a great time to buy a grill, as retailers often mark down prices in an attempt to clear out excess summer inventory to make way for fall and holiday merchandise. This 5-burner propane grill from Char-Broil is a popular choice among first-time grill owners because it has all the standard features you'd expect, like a side burner, electronic ignition, and a side shelf for utensils and condiments, plus 565 square-inches of total cooking space that can fit up to 30 burgers. It’s easy to assemble and a very reasonable price, too.
If you're a seasoned grill master and are looking to expand your horizons, a pellet grill might be your next frontier. Not only can you enter the world of smoke cooking, but this grill is also Wi-Fi enabled and has an accompanying app, so you can receive notifications when your meat reaches the ideal temperature.
Some people have ditched their grills entirely in favor of a smoker. If you've been wanting to try a smoker yourself, the Clihome vertical smoker is a great place to start. It has a thermometer on the front door that will help you keep close tabs on the internal temperature, four vents that can be adjusted to control the amount of smoke in the unit, and two grill nets that provide enough room to roast all kinds of meats and vegetables.
Kamado grills are beloved for their versatility. With thick ceramic walls for insulation and a tall dome-shaped lid for airflow, this egg-shaped grill can hold both very high and very low temperatures while retaining moisture, making it perfect for everything from grilling to smoking and baking.
Best Labor Day Smart Home Deals at Lowe's
With a smart thermostat, you'll never have to worry about forgetting to turn off the A/C again. The Google Nest Learning smart thermostat is one of our favorites on the market, because it goes beyond app controls to learn the temperatures you like and programs itself to maintain that temperature throughout the day, plus it will automatically turn itself down while you’re away to help save energy.
The Google Nest Doorbell Smart Security Camera was named one of the best doorbell cameras of 2022 by experts at the Good Housekeeping Institute. Our testers noted that it has some of the best motion detection they've seen on any doorbell camera, as well as superb audio quality and excellent picture resolution with night vision. It has a speaker that's compatible with Google Assistant and Alexa, so you can talk to visitors at your door from any room in your house.
For maximum home protection, opt for a smart home security system with multiple cameras. This security system by Swann has four cameras, 4K UHD video recording, heat and motion sensors, color night vision, automatic lights, and a 2TB hard drive to store up to 6 months of footage at a time.
