Best Labor Day deals on Samsung Galaxy phones


Samsung has kick-started Labor Day sales with some great discounts on its official page. The tech giant has deals on its newest and hottest foldable flagship phones, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3, tremendously discounting them just in time for Labor Day. The powerful beast Galaxy S21 Ultra is discounted as well. Keep in mind that all the discounts on Samsung's website require you to have an eligible trade-in device to benefit from them.

However, trade-in or not, you can get a free set of Galaxy Buds 2 with any purchase of the Z Fold 3 or Z Flip 3.

AT&T has also started its Labor Day sales with discounts on the hottest flagship Galaxy phones as well. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Z Fold 3 are up to $1000 off with trade-in and Unlimited plan. The trade-in is pretty generous, too — you can turn in an old Galaxy S9 and you still get $1000 off. 

Back to Samsung’s website, the Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra are $200 off in instant savings, while the Galaxy S21 is $100 off. You can further enhance the discount if you throw in an old device to trade-in (cracked screen devices also accepted).

Best Labor Day deals on iPhones


Many of you may probably know, but iPhones rarely get big discounts during shopping events. However, AT&T's Labor Day deals have graced us with some great trade-in deals on the newest available iPhones, such as the iPhone 12 Pro Max and the iPhone 12, which are both currently discounted by $700. Of course, to benefit from these deals, you will need an Unlimited plan with the carrier. Additionally, the iPhone 12 mini can be yours 50% off with no trade-in, and the same Labor Day deal is available for the iPhone 11.

Over at Verizon, you can nab an iPhone 11 for free, as long as you sign up for an Unlimited plan.

Additionally, Best Buy has a sale on the iPhone 12 mini, and you can save $300 with qualified activation. The cool thing about this deal is that it doesn't require you to have a trade-in device to benefit from it.

Labor Day deals on smartwatches


Samsung's Labor Day sale extends to the newly-announced Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, so you can save if you're willing to upgrade to one of these two smartwatches.

Best Buy also has some discounts, although these are not Labor Day-specific deals, and the Galaxy Watch 3 is currently $100 off. The 40 mm Apple Watch Series 6 has gotten a serious $150 price drop. If you are after a bigger, 44 mm, model — look over to the Apple Watch Series 5 clearance sale instead.

Best Labor Day deals on headphones, earbuds, and AirPods


Headphone deals just in time for Labor Day are also starting to appear by now. AT&T's deals on headphones are currently tied to a purchase of a smartphone, but nevertheless, they're good offers if you're going to upgrade your phone, to grab a pair of earbuds to accompany it for cheap.

On the other hand, Best Buy has a couple of deals on older generations of Samsung earbuds on sale in time for Labor Day, as well as on the AirPods with charging case and the AirPods Pro.

Amazon has also launched some deals, and the retailer has great discounts on the AirPods Pro.
