TVs, appliances on sale in September

Labor Day sales

Labor Day sales

September and Labor Day sales go together like peanut butter and jelly.

It's the weekend when shoppers typically see deals on some of the big-ticket items, such as televisions, mattresses and home appliances, says Daniel Butler, vice president of retail operations for the National Retail Federation.

Often, TVs will be 20 percent to 25 percent off, he says. And bedding will be up to 50 percent off.

"Labor Day sales are fantastic" for home appliance discounts, says Hillary Mendelsohn, author of "thepurplebook" series of shopping guides and founder of ThePurpleBook.com. Want to score extra savings? "Make sure you go online for additional coupons before you go to the stores," she says.

"You can save up to 40 percent because they're moving merchandise to get the new merchandise in," she says. "It's a great time to get stuff."

And while you'll see discounts on individual home appliances, you may also notice a new trend: bundling, Butler says. Buy a suite of appliances -- such as a dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave and stove for your kitchen -- and you might save, say, $1,000 over the individual combined prices, he says.
