Savings are available on customer-loved brands, such as Milwaukee and Hampton Bay, and the markdowns on upgraded patio furniture will make your head spin. Don’t know where to begin? Not a problem. We’ve taken on the daunting task of sorting through all the best finds from this massive sale, where you’ll find impressive discounts on plenty of Reviewed-approved large appliances, storage solutions and more.
This Labor Day, you can save big on appliances, such as washers, dryers and refrigerators. The Home Depot is offering savings up to 30% on appliance purchases, including one of our favorite washing machines: the Electrolux EFLS527UTT. In testing, we couldn’t find many flaws with its incredible performance, as it excelled at stain removal, yet was extra-gentle on delicates. The pod detergent slot, meanwhile, was an added bonus. It’s currently on sale here for $989, which is $110 off its retail price of $1,099. (Note that you can get it cheaper in white here.)
Also on sale is the Samsung RF28R6301SR, a.k.a. a counter-depth fridge that we included in our roundup of the best counter-depth refrigerators. Once $2,999, you can purchase this refrigerator for $2,098, giving you $901 in savings. We loved this Samsung model because it offered family-friendly features that were perfect for the average consumer, such as a through-door water-and-ice dispenser, a well-organized interior and spot-on fridge and freezer temperature control.
The weather might be turning soon, but you don’t have to head indoors—there’s plenty of ways to make your outdoor space more cozy for fall, and there’s no better time to do it than this holiday sale. Discounts of up to 35% extend to highly-rated patio furniture, like this Hampton Bay Cambridge wicker outdoor patio loveseat, once $229, which drops to $183.20. Complete with nearly 700 ratings and a collective 4.8-star review, this farmhouse-chic piece is plenty comfortable. It even comes with fast-drying cushions in midnight blue along with a removable slipcover and a sturdy steel frame.
Right now, you can save on popular power toolsets, like this RYOBI 18-volt starter kit. It includes a brushless jigsaw and blade, two batteries, a bag and a charger, all for $179. That’s $158 off its list price and nearly $53 less than you’d pay for it on Amazon. Although we haven’t tested this best-selling model out just yet, Home Depot customers seem thrilled with this tool kit. It’s garnered a 4.8-star rating from more than 4,230 shoppers, who noted that the batteries charge quickly and last quite awhile, and that the lightweight, cordless jigsaw had awesome power.
You can also snag single tools for less, including this Milwaukee M18 Sawzall 2621-20, which we included in our roundup of best reciprocating saws. Although it was on the heavier side (it weighs in at 7.4 pounds), it was still impressively powerful, cutting through a plywood obstacle course with ease. It normally sells for $129, but you can grab it for $99 right now, which is down $30 in total.
You might not think of The Home Depot as a go-to spot for bedding but the retailer actually has a huge selection of comforters, sheets, pillows and more, all of which currently come up to 50% off. For instance, this 600-thread count Supima cotton sateen four-piece sheet set is on sale in full, king, queen and California king sizes starting at $59.98 (originally $74.97) for a discount of 20%. Available in four colors (white, gray, light blue and beige), shoppers adore these luxurious sheets for the super-soft feel. This set includes one fitted sheet, one flat sheet and two pillowcases, all of which are machine-washable and feature grip-on technology that will help them stay put on your mattress.
Thanks to the retailer’s huge holiday sale, you can nab major discounts on accent lighting, fans and even smart light bulbs. This Hampton Bay Stoneridge 52-inch ceiling fan, for example, is on sale in matte black for $69.97, falling $20 from $89.97. This classic fan style has close to 650 reviews with a 4.7-star rating. It features five reversible blades and an oak wood finish. It also comes with a light kit and three 6.5-watt LED light bulbs for easy installation.
In the market to organize your home? The Home Depot has got you covered with discounts of up to 30% on storage solutions. The sale encompasses lockers, hooks, closet organizers and more, including this heavy-duty Husky 4-tier steel garage storage shelving unit, which was once $199 and is now going for $169. This best-selling unit can support up to 1,500 pounds, while the shelves are 24 inches deep, making them large enough to hold plenty of storage bins. An added bonus? The steel shelves are covered by Husky’s lifetime warranty, no questions asked.
7. Small kitchen appliances
The store’s Labor Day sale also encompasses up to 40% on small kitchen appliances, like this Magic Chef nine-in-one 6-quart multi-cooker. It’s typically priced at $99.99, but you can snag it for $40 off, which comes out to $59.99 for the 40% discount. While we haven’t yet tested this model out, we’ve featured the brand in our lists of the best countertop microwaves, the best portable dishwashers and more. Complete with a 4.6-star rating from shoppers, this multi-use cooker comes with 14 presets, including rice, beans/chili, meat/stew and slow cook. You can even choose your preferred pressure, depending on what you’re cooking and how fast you want it prepared.
