Labor Day may mark the unofficial end to summer and the beginning of the school year for many students, but it’s also one of the last big sales weekends before the holiday shopping season ramps up ahead of Black Friday (and Amazon’s next not-Prime Day event).
Thankfully, if you didn’t get a chance to cash in on the Labor Day sales over the weekend, there are a number of deals still available. We’ve combed through the various Labor Day sales and promos still on offer, compiling a list of the best deals here. Not every item is on sale for its best price to date, but there are some solid deals available on a range of quality, Verge-approved devices and accessories you can’t go wrong with.
Earbud, headphone, and speaker deals
- Amazon is currently discounting a couple of Ultimate Ears’ Bluetooth speakers in varying sizes, at least in select colors. Right now, you can grab the UE Wonderboom 3 for $79.99 ($20 off) or the UE Megaboom 3 for $149.99 ($50 off), both of which feature waterproofing, one-touch controls, and plenty of bass.
- Sennheiser’s Momentum True Wireless 3 are on sale at Amazon starting at $179.97 (about $100 off). The latest noise-canceling earbuds from Sennheiser feature a smaller design than the previous model, along with a case that supports wireless charging. Read our review.
The revised Mac Mini for 2023 starts at $599 for an M2-powered model with an eight-core CPU, 10-core GPU, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD. The Mini can also be had with the M2 Pro chip, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and a more robust port selection for $1,299. Read our review.
Apple’s revamped iPad Mini ditches the home button and opts for a larger edge-to-edge display. It also comes outfitted with a faster processor, support for USB-C, and a top-mounted power button that moonlights as a Touch ID sensor. Read our review.
- Apple’s second-gen AirPods Pro are going for $199 ($50 off) at Amazon and Walmart, matching their typical sale price. The wireless earbuds don’t necessarily reinvent the wheel — at least from the outside — but they offer better noise cancellation, improved sound, and a MagSafe-compatible charging case with location tracking.

- Apple’s newest Mac, the 15-inch MacBook Air with the M2 processor, is going for $1,099 ($200 off) at Amazon. It offers just about everything that’s good about the 13-inch M2 Air, but with a larger screen and better speakers. Read our review.
- Apple’s wedge-shaped M1 MacBook Air is currently matching its all-time low of $749.99 ($250 off) at Amazon and Best Buy in all three shades (silver, gray, and gold). It’s a solid laptop despite having launched in 2020, one that offers great battery life, a classic design, and enough power for most everyday computing tasks. Read our review.
The redesigned MacBook Air is a thin, lightweight device powered by Apple’s latest chip. The M2 model also touts a 1080p webcam and a better display than its predecessor while retaining features like long battery life and MagSafe charging.
Smart home deals
Ring’s flagship doorbell has the best video quality, good connectivity, and excellent motion detection. It works smoothly with Amazon Alexa but is expensive, requires a subscription for most features, and doesn’t offer 24/7 recording.
- The latest Ring Indoor Cam is selling for $34.99 ($25 off) at Amazon, Best Buy, and The Home Depot. The plug-in 1080p security camera features night vision, two-way talking, and a privacy cover.
- Arlo’s Essential Spotlight is now on sale for $259.99 ($190 off) at Best Buy. You can use the four-camera, 1080p surveillance setup either indoors or outside your home, and it supports night vision and up to six months of battery life on a single charge.
- Nanoleaf is currently hosting a “Last of Summer Sale,” discounting some of its gamer-y and decorative smart lighting by up to $40. One of the better deals is on a 10-pack of Nanoleaf Lines, which lets you create squared-off designs for just $180 ($40 off).
Nanoleaf’s modular lights can showcase over 16 million colors, and you can arrange them in a variety of fun patterns. The smart lights are also compatible with both Alexa and Google Assistant.
This two-pack of Wi-Fi 6E routers can cover a space of up to 5,500 square feet. It features tri-band support, giving plenty of bandwidth to Wi-Fi 6 devices on the 6GHz spectrum as well as to 5GHz and 2.4GHz devices. Each router has three gigabit ethernet ports, with support for ethernet backhaul.
Laptop and computing deals
- HP is running a Labor Day sale on various laptops and office accessories. Right now, for instance, you can get a 14-inch HP Spectre x360 2-in-1 laptop with a 13th Gen Intel i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and 1TB SSD for $1,149.99 ($400 off).
- Lenovo is also hosting a Labor Day sale with quote-unquote doorbusters (sigh). One small highlight is a moderately well-specced 14-inch ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10 with a 12th Gen Intel i7 processor, 32GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD for $1,623.99 (nearly $2,000 off its original MSRP).
The convertible Surface Pro 9 offers a sharp screen with a speedy 120Hz refresh rate and a stylus garage.
Amazon’s Fire TV Omni QLED features built-in microphones for Alexa commands, low input lag, and support for two-way video calling with a compatible webcam. It also provides access to Netflix, Prime Video, Disney Plus, and most major streaming services.
Other miscellaneous deals
The official Xbox Wireless Controller has a dedicated share button for saving clips and screenshots and sharing them online, Bluetooth support, and a USB-C port for charging up Microsoft’s play-and-charge rechargeable battery.
- Solo Stove is discounting a variety of its portable fire pits this week. For example, you can get the Bonfire 2.0 for $239.99 ($160 off) or the smaller Ranger 2.0 for $199.99 ($100 off), both of which make starting up a mostly smokeless fire fairly easy.
- TP-Link’s RE215 Wi-Fi extender is on sale at Amazon for $25.99 ($4 off) right now. It’s not the best tool for boosting your network coverage — for that, we’d recommend opting for a proper mesh networking kit — but it’s relatively affordable and features an ethernet port for connecting wired devices.
- Topo Designs is hosting a Labor Day sale on many of its colorful packs and outdoor clothing. As an example, you can currently get a cute Rover Pack Mini in a variety of colors on final sale for $34 ($35 off).
Update September 5th, 3:26PM ET: Adjusted intro language and vetted pricing / availability for all remaining deals.
