I'm a shopping editor, and these are the best Labor Day deals today

I've spent days combing through thousands of deals. Trust me, these are the best

Labor Day is here, and a wide range of deals have dropped across the biggest retailers in the country. It's your last chance to grab a good deal before Black Friday and you won't see outdoor furniture at these prices until next year. 

I oversee all the reviews content here at Homes & Gardens so I know exactly which products are worth buying and which aren't worth your time. 

I've personally combed through every site and edited all of our Labor Day sales coverage, picking out all of the very best deals found by our writers. These are my picks of the very best in every category. 

I've whittled it down, but even with a little selectivity there's more than 60 deals across outdoor furniture, indoor furniture, and a huge range of appliances and mattresses.  

My favorite deals

Emma Original Mattress, Queen was $1399
Biggest discount

Emma Original Mattress, Queen |was $1399, now $529 at Emma
This is a huge discount on a mattress we loved on test. There's no better mattress at this price point right now. 

Hoover ONEPWR Pet Max | was $309.99, now $177.99 at Amazon
Best vacuum deal

Hoover ONEPWR Pet Max | was $309.99, now $177.99 at Amazon
This is a great saving on a good vacuum cleaner. I have one of these in my apartment and it's pretty good. The anti-hair wrap and runtime could be better, but it's amazing on carpet. While there are certainly better vacuums out there, there aren't any better at this price. If you need a good vacuum ASAP, I'd get this now. 

Ovios 5 Pieces Outdoor Patio Furniture | Was $1899, now $729.99 at Walmart

Ovios 5 Pieces Outdoor Patio Furniture | Was $1899, now $729.99 at Walmart
This discount of more than $1000 is one of the best deals I've seen of any sales event this year, but you'll have to move quickly – stock is selling out fast.
