If the realization that Labor Day is just around the corner brings to mind all the fall essentials you’ve been meaning to get, you’re in luck. Earning its nickname of being the Everything Store for the umpteenth time, Amazon is currently stacked with deals on trending items, devices, gadgets and more. At the moment, back-to-school supplies, fall fashion, headphones and furniture are seeing deep discounts.
The sales and deals team at Good Housekeeping did a deep dive into the best deals on Amazon ahead of the holiday weekend and found, to our delight, that a number of our readers’ favorite brands and products loved by our Good Housekeeping Institute experts are already on sale. From dutch ovens and air fryers, to AirPods and Adidas sneakers, we unearthed some of the steepest markdowns we’ve seen outside of Prime Day. To spare you the time of sifting through thousands of products, we’ve narrowed down a list of the best Amazon sales to take advantage of this Labor Day.
As the Swiss army knife of pots and pans, a dutch oven can do it all: Soups, stews, pastas, homemade bread — the list goes on. Named the best value dutch oven by Good Housekeeping Institute Kitchen experts, Lodge’s cast iron enameled model offers wide, easy-to-use handles and a stainless steel lid handle. Here, a chance to get Amazon’s #1 best selling dutch oven for a steal of a price.
Reigning as Amazon’s #1 best-selling pair of women’s leggings at the time of publication, Satina’s high waisted yoga leggings boast a soft and flexible feel. (Editor’s note: I own a pair and can attest to how comfy these are for lounging, yoga and walking).
According to experts and reviewers, LuxClub’s Deep Pocket Bamboo sheets are among the best sheets sold on Amazon. As one reviewer put it: “I’ve tried Egyptian cotton, Peruvian cotton and Pima cotton,” they say. “My search is over because these sheets feel and look great. Unlike cotton, they don’t wrinkle and are smooth and cool to the touch. I am in my 50’s, so staying cool at night is a must.”
PS: With 18-inch deep pockets, these are a wise choice for taller mattresses.
Upgraded to include a noise cancellation feature, AirPods Pro are the latest model of the earphone series. Equipped with a charging case that delivers more than 24 hours of battery life, these are well worth the splurge if you’re always on the go.
A denim jacket is a must. Levi’s Ex-boyfriend Trucker style is as classic, and the style is currently on sale for the steepest discount we’ve seen since Prime Day.

Comfort isn’t compromised for affordability with Adidas’s best-selling Cloudfoam Pure running shoe. For a sense of how popular these sneakers are, peep the 57,000 ratings and counting they currently boast on Amazon.
Named the best air fryer for families of four by Kitchen Lab experts at the Good Housekeeping Institute, the Instant Pot Vortex’s square shape creates more cooking space than its round competitors. It boasts six cooking settings (including air fry, roast, broil, bake, reheat and dehydrate), plus has different programmable temperature and time settings.
By now, you’ve probably heard a thing or two about the many benefits of weighted blankets. Made from 100% cotton with a 300-thread count, Layla’s iteration (available in 15 pounds, 20 pounds and 25 pounds) features a fleece top that feels divinely luxe to rest under.
The Apple Watch Series 6 is wearable wellness technology at its finest. Equipped with features such as sleep tracking and a blood oxygen sensor (which can be useful in understanding your overall health), this smart watch is worth the splurge.

These Tik Tok famous claw clips are beloved by thousands of Amazon shoppers for their durability, comfort and being thick hair-friendly. Editor’s note: I own (and love) these clips and can be found wearing one nearly everyday.
With 100 pages of college-ruled paper in each notebook, this pack of Five Star notebooks should have you more than covered for a semester’s worth of note taking.
Another cult-loved Adidas favorite, the 2021 Ultraboost is currently on sale as well. Supportive and fashionable in equal measure, these running shoes can be worn for virtually every workout. Also, fun fact: Meghan Markle and Justin Bieber are among the many celebrities to have been spotted in Ultraboosts over the years.

A fresh pair of leather sneakers for fall is never a bad idea. Multiple sizes and colors are available.
The thought of wearing a puffer jacket right now might very well be sweat stain-inducing, but having one ready for when transitional temperatures arrive is a power move. This option in particular is made more versatile by the fact that it’s water-resistant and can fit into a small, packable bag when traveling.
