Labor Day weekend deals
Think of it as the Black Friday before Black Friday. And if you're searching for deals, you'll find some healthy discounts this weekend.
"I like to think of Labor Day as a good time to buy the big-ticket items you can't wait until Black Friday to buy," says Benjamin K. Glaser, features editor with DealNews.com.
Labor Day rivals Memorial Day as "one of the best times of the year to buy a mattress," he says. "You should look for discounts of at least 50%," then add coupons for extra savings, Glaser says.
Perez agrees. Based on last year's sales, expect discounts of up to 60%, plus some retailers will throw in gift cards to popular discount stores, while other retailers will offer such bargains as twin mattresses for $99, she says.
