Now is the time to buy

As you probably know all too well, appliances are expensive. That’s why it’s a good idea to time your purchase right whenever possible. “Three-day weekends are always a reliable time to shop for appliances and big-ticket items,” explains Trae Bodge, a smart-shopping expert. “Labor Day weekend is one of my favorites for appliance deals because retailers often offer generous discounts in an effort to clear out their inventory to make way for the new models coming later in September and in October.”

While almost everything is marked down for the long weekend, some Labor Day appliance sales are better than others. “Most large appliances, except refrigerators, go on sale over Labor Day weekend, and some of the sales will continue through September,” says Bodge. “Expect to see discounts from large chains like Home Depot and Lowe’s, which are open on Labor Day, in the 25 to 40% off range.”

When you’re talking about normally expensive items like appliances, those types of savings could mean putting literally hundreds of dollars back in your pocket. In short, now is the time to buy! For more steep discounts in every category including Labor Day mattress sales and Labor Day furniture sales, check out this comprehensive list of Labor Day sales you won’t want to miss either.

Best Labor Day appliance sales on washers and dryers

Is a new washer and dryer set on your shopping list? According to Bodge, this is where you’ll see some of the biggest savings of the weekend. If you’re still not convinced, think of it this way: These appliances will likely be more energy-efficient than what you currently have, so you’ll actually end up saving a bundle in the long run by lowering your household bills. That’s in addition to getting one at a massive discount right now during these Labor Day appliance sales.
