Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

At $59, this is within a buck of the best price we’ve seen. It lists for $129 and sells elsewhere in the $89-to-$99 range.This is one item of many available as part of eBay’s Labor Day Sale (which, at this writing, doesn’t specifically mention Labor Day, but that’s how it was pitched to us). $999 Tags Other Labor Day sales you should check out Best Buy: In addition to some pretty solid MacBook deals that have been running for about a week already, Best Buy is offering up to 40% off major appliances like washers, dryers and stoves.

See at Amazon Foxconn breaks ground on first US factory Turo I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

The Democrat inherited the deal from Republican predecessor Scott Walker, who helped woo Foxconn to Wisconsin with the largest incentive in state history. During his election campaign, Evers took a critical stance on Walker’s dealings with the company. Evers’ office didn’t respond to a request for comment.First published July 11 at 4:10 a.m. PT.Update, July 12 at 1:47 a.m. PT: Adds Foxconn statement.

Read Google Home Hub review The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. President Donald Trump and Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou attend the groundbreaking for the company’s plant in Mt. Pleasant, Wisconsin, in June 2018. Brian Cassella/Chicago Tribune/TNS via Getty Images Foxconn will kick off production at its Wisconsin plant in May with 1,500 employees, Gov. Tony Evers told CNBC this week. That’s considerably fewer than the 13,000 that Foxconn and President Donald Trump have said the factory would hire since a 2017 announcement at the White House.The Taiwan-based electronics maker is best known for assembling Apple’s iPhone and providing parts for other tech companies’ gadgets. It intends to build LCD screens at the Wisconsin plant.Foxconn’s deal with Wisconsin means it must create 1,820 jobs by the end of 2020 to get up to $270 million in tax credits. The company missed its 2018 target of 260 jobs. Ultimately, it must hit a 13,000 goal by 2032 to qualify for subsidies of around $3 billion.
