Smart home deals

  • Google’s latest Nest Hub smart display is widely available on sale for $54.99 ($45 off) at Home Depot, Best Buy, and Target. Its seven-inch display is great for streaming shared photo albums in Google Photos or getting a quick glimpse of the weather. Read our review.
  • If the standard Nest Hub is too small, you can go big with the Google Nest Hub Max’s 10-inch display and larger, louder speaker for $174 ($55 off) at Best Buy, Home Depot, and Target. It’s the better option for those who have space and can justify the price, as it’s much better for listening to music and has a front-facing camera for video calls. Read our review.
  • The Ring Floodlight Cam Wired Pro is $199.99 ($50 off) at Best Buy and Amazon. It’s the best option around if you use Amazon Alexa and want a bird’s eye view of your property in 1080p resolution with bright, adjustable lights and a siren. Read our buying guide.
  • The Google Nest Learning Thermostat is a little long in the tooth but still a great smart home accessory that learns your habits and adjusts the HVAC accordingly on its own. It’s on sale for $189 ($60 off) at Best Buy, Home Depot, and Amazon.
  • Ring’s base model Video Doorbell may not be as feature-rich as its higher-end counterparts, but the 1080p-capable wired / wireless-compatible doorbell is just $84.99 ($15 off) at Home Depot, Amazon, and Best Buy. Read our video doorbell buying guide.

Gaming deals

Microsoft Xbox Series S

The Xbox Series S is smaller than the 4K-capable Xbox Series X, but it can still tackle the same digital games — albeit at 2560 x 1440 QHD resolution. Use the code LABORDAYSAVE at checkout.

  • Samsung’s 1TB 980 Pro SSD with a heatsink is perfect for expanding your PS5’s storage, and it’s down to $139.99 ($40 off) at Amazon and Best Buy.

Smartphone deals

Google Pixel 6

Google’s lower priced Pixel 6 has the same Tensor processor and 50-megapixel primary camera as the Pixel 6 Pro but with a smaller (flat) display and no dedicated telephoto camera. But you’re getting largely the same experience in a more affordable, easier-to-handle form factor.
