Should You Shop the Amazon Labor Day Sale 2021?

Labor Day has become a classic shopping holiday. The keen-eyed, deal-conscious consumer should definitely pay attention to these sales. True, prices of Amazon products vary wildly, but that doesn’t guarantee that you’ll see any of these deals even a week from now.

You can’t even guarantee that Amazon will keep these deals live all the way through Labor Day. Big retailers often use smaller items, such as Echo smart home devices or headphones, to hype up later deals on more in-demand products. But what if all you want is that smaller item? Better grab it quickly, before it’s replaced with a deal Amazon thinks deserves the spotlight more. Deals hunting is a betting game, and it’s important to know when to go all in.

What items usually go on sale? We’ve all been seeing and hearing the usual mattress and furniture sales for weeks now, but tech has its day too. Laptops, headphones, smart devices, and almost anything else you can imagine will eventually go on sale during Labor Day. As a shopping holiday, Labor Day coincides with back-to-school sales, so expect to see lots of laptop deals and Chromebook deals. Ever popular but expensive brands often go on sale during shopping holidays, so folks who figured AirPods were just out of their price range will get the nudge they need to finally buy them.

Yes, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are right around the corner, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you should hold out for a better deal. Amazon has a reputation for wildly fluctuating sales and deals. For instance, the 2020 iPad Air was $560 last Prime Day, and right now it’s down to $500. If the price is right, it’s best to grab it now. Think how frustrating it would be to pass up a great deal, only to get a smaller one, or none at all, a few months from now. This definitely applies to smaller items that don’t have a history of sales, something Amazon is likely to overlook during Prime Day. Think niche smart home technology or a specific TV you’ve had your eye on.
