Labor Day weekend marks the bittersweet end of summer, but in the midst of kids heading back to school and the world of tech about to pop off with new stuff, there are deals and sales to take advantage of. Yes, Labor Day is meant to honor the American worker — and of course, the only way we really know how to celebrate is by spending. But to help your dollars go further in our gadget-filled world, we’re compiling some of the best tech deals happening from the lead-up to Labor Day and through the holiday weekend.

Many deals and discounts are already available, and some run through Monday, September 5th. While some may not be explicitly labeled as Labor Day promotions, they’re just good deals regardless and worthy of your attention — ranging from Apple stuff to earbuds to smart home tech and more.

Apple’s latest entry-level iPad represents a slight update, with a new A13 Bionic chip and a 12MP front camera that supports Apple’s Center Stage feature.

  • If you have a newer iPad, you can pick up Apple's latest Apple Pencil at Amazon, Target, and Best Buy for a mere $99 ($30 off), which matches the best price we’ve seen on the capable stylus. Unlike its predecessor, the second-gen model offers wireless charging while docked to the side of your tablet, along with a set of simple gesture controls.

$199.95

The Beats Fit Pro earbuds have integrated wing tips that help keep them secure during runs and workouts. They also have excellent noise cancellation, and their sound has just the right amount of bass and kick to keep you motivated.

Smart home deals

  • Google’s latest Nest Hub smart display is widely available and on sale for $54.99 ($45 off) at Home Depot, Best Buy, and Target. Its seven-inch display is great for streaming shared photo albums via Google Photos or getting a quick glimpse at the weather. Read our review.
  • If the standard Nest Hub is too small for you, you can go big with the Google Nest Hub Max, which offers a 10-inch display and is on sale for $174 ($55 off) at Best Buy, Home Depot, and Target. It’s the better option for those who have space and can justify the price, as it’s much better for listening to music and has a front-facing camera for video calls. Read our review.

Ring Floodlight Cam Pro

$249.9920% off
$199.99

The Ring Floodlight Cam Pro comes in a wired or plug-in version for flexible installation and delivers crisp, high-quality video with adjustable motion detection, 2000 lumens of light, and a good digital zoom. It only offers smart alerts for people or motion, however, and works with Ring or Alexa apps but not any other smart home platform.

  • The Ring Floodlight Cam Wired Pro is $199.99 ($50 off) at Best Buy and Amazon. It’s the best option around if you use Amazon Alexa and want a bird’s eye view of your property in 1080p resolution with bright, adjustable lights and a siren. Read our buying guide.
  • The Google Nest Learning Thermostat might be a little long in the tooth but it remains a great smart home accessory that learns your habits and adjusts the HVAC accordingly on its own. It’s on sale right now for $189 ($60 off) at Best Buy, Home Depot, and Amazon.
  • Ring’s base model Video Doorbell may not be as feature-rich as its higher-end counterparts, but the 1080p-capable wired / wireless-compatible doorbell is just $84.99 ($15 off) at Home Depot, Amazon, and Best Buy. Read our video doorbell buying guide.

$249.99

Amazon’s rotating Echo Show 10 has a motor within its cylindrical base that lets its 10.1-inch display spin around to find you, so you’ll always have the screen within view. It’s the best smart display for making video calls.

Gaming deals

$139.99

Samsung’s 980 Pro is a fast PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD that’s capable of sequential read speeds of up to 7,000MB/s and write speeds of up to 5,000MB/s. These specs make it a great choice for a modern PCIe 4.0-equipped PC or for a PS5, the latter requiring a heatsink.

Smartphone deals

Google Pixel 6

$59917% off
$499

Google’s lower priced Pixel 6 has the same Tensor processor and 50-megapixel primary camera as the Pixel 6 Pro but with a smaller (flat) display and no dedicated telephoto camera. But you’re getting largely the same experience in a more affordable, easier-to-handle form factor.
