Labor Day is the most wonderful time of year … for sales! No, we’re not talking about the conventional holiday season. We’re talking about Labor Day appliance sales. So if you’re in the market for a new kitchen appliance — of pretty much any kind — Labor Day is the time to get the most bang for your buck.
Labor Day happened on Monday, Sept. 4, 2023, and now we’re looking ahead to 2024. So we rounded up the appliance deals we saw in 2023 so you can plan ahead. If you’re scouring the web for the best appliance sales, see below for the most noteworthy deals on appliances from microwaves and fridges to stoves and range hoods that we’ve seen in the past. You could score all these Labor Day Appliance deals at Lowe’s, Home Depot, Overstock, Sears, and more.
1. Save up to 50% on microwaves if you shop at Walmart, Target, or Best Buy on Labor Day.
In 2023, some Labor Day appliance sales included up to 50% off microwaves. While some microwaves cost as much as $400, you should never pay more than $100 for a microwave. Luckily, we expect that you can get a microwave within that budget at Walmart, Target, and Best Buy this upcoming Labor Day weekend.
But if you need one now, here are a few on sale:

2. Shop Labor Day deals on refrigerators from Home Depot, Wayfair, Walmart, and Overstock.
You should never pay full price for a refrigerator on Labor Day Weekend. Labor Day appliance sales at Home Depot and Overstock feature deep discounts on all types of refrigerators from top brands like Samsung.
Last year, we saw Home Depot offer Samsung refrigerators at the $1,400 mark (from $2,199). Overstock also took up to $100 off mini-refrigerators. Wayfair and Walmart also have deals going on year-round.

3. Find deals on Nespresso, Keurig, and more weeks before Labor Day.
Starting as early as late July, we’ve seen tons of coffee makers go on sale at stores like Amazon and Macy’s. Even now, you could find 30% off a Keurig Mini and 75% off an Art & Cook Espresso Machine. We expect deals to climb up even closer to Labor Day.
4. Save 13% – 16% on Fotile appliances during Lowe’s Labor Day sale.
In 2022, Lowe’s offered the SD2F-P3 Sink Dishwasher, $949 (reg. $1,099) at Lowes.com in late August. A similar deal happened in 2023, where you could save $200 on the dishwasher, up until almost a week after Labor Day (September 10).
5. Expect Ninja air fryers to go major on sale at Kohl’s.
In early summer, Kohl’s marked down the Ninja Air Fryer and Rapid Cooker to just $85.49, which was 61% off its original $219.99 price. There are additional air fryer deals happening at a few stores even now.
6. Take up to 40% off oven ranges this Labor Day at Home Depot, Overstock, and Sears.
The ZLINE professional-grade oven ranges are hardly ever marked down and usually cost more than $8,000, so this Labor Day is the perfect time to get one on sale. Last year, Home Depot and Sears had great appliance discounts on GE and Frigidaire oven ranges for Labor Day weekend.
For example, you could save up to $300 on GE griddles at Home Depot and up to $150 dollars on Fridigaire ranges at Sears. We’re still waiting for deals to drop, but we think you’ll be able to find similar deals this year.
7. Home Depot’s Labor Day Appliance sale is great for discounts on dishwashers.
Last year, we saw Samsung, Frigidaire, and LG Electronics go on sale during Labor Day weekend. Here are some deals happening now:
