Normally priced at $550, this 55" Insignia 4K TV — Amazon's No. 1 new release in LED and LCD TVs — is just $380 for Labor Day. It features vivid colors and exceptional picture quality — both of which are four-leaf-clover rare in this price range. It really stands out among its peers. The audio, too, is head-of-the-class. Plus, this smart TV is compatible with Alexa, so all you have to do is ask her to turn on your favorite new Netflix binge or that show you've been meaning to check out on Hulu (may we recommend Nine Perfect Strangers?).
"This TV is so much more than expected at the low-end price point," a shopper shared. "I compared several models, and this Insignia was truly half the price of some other TV models I was considering and was equal in picture quality, technology – especially with the Fire TV Edition; better in sound quality – bye, bye soundbar — and faster response time for streaming. With truly little tweaking of the color, tint, and brightness the picture rocked. So, without hesitation, I would recommend this TV."

Tablets and smartphones
This gorgeous tablet has an impressive 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display, quick Touch ID fingerprint sensor and rapid processor. You’ll notice — and appreciate — the speed with any videos, websites or games. (For the tech-savvy, the speed comes from Apple’s A14 Bionic chip). Get it for $99 off this Labor Day!
Plus: With up to 10 hours of battery life, the iPad Air works with the Apple Pencil and Apple Smart Keyboard (sold separately, but also on sale). So you’re all set for note-taking and sketching, if that’s your thing. It also has a 12-megapixel rear camera.
"Wanted to watch Netflix while husband watches golf," one shopper shared. "This suited my needs and was insanely easy to set up and sync to my phone. Just turn it on next to your iPhone and everything loads. I also like to cook and recipes are so much easier to read on the big screen. Didn’t know what I was missing trying to read recipes off my tiny phone! Very happy with this for my simple recreational needs."

Headphones and Earbuds
With the phenomenal sound you’d expect from Apple, we present the best bargain on the AirPod menu: These standard Apple AirPods with charging case, now just $100 for Labor Day. While the buds themselves are wireless, you need to plug in the case to charge them.
Once juiced up, they instantly pair with your iPhone. No scrolling, no fiddling with settings. You’re good to go. And you can expect a robust five hours of battery life per charge. These are the most popular Pods of the bunch, earning a five-star rating from over 370,000 reviewers.
"This is my first pair of AirPods. I love them. They are life-changing! The AirPods arrived less than 24-hours after ordering. They were packaged in a sleek, white Apple AirPods box," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. “...I wholeheartedly give these AirPods five shiny gold stars."

This smart-home thermostat — $50 off for Labor Day — can analyze how you’re heating and cooling your home and adjust accordingly. In fact, it knows to keep it toasty when your family is home, and tone it down when it’s just you. It also automatically lowers the temp as soon as you leave your house.
It also syncs with your smartphone via the Nest app, and it can be used with your Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. Now you can control the temperature of your home, even if you’re heading home from the store or just landed from a flight. It’s even great if you’re in bed and just don’t want to get up to adjust the thermostat.
"The Nest thermostat is such a modern improvement in my home," a shopper noted. "It was easy to install, works great and can be adjusted anywhere from my smartphone. I like having the ability to adjust from my master bedroom, before going to bed or just getting up in the morning. It also learns your habits for automatic adjustments, keeping household heat or cooling efficiency."

If you always dreamed of being a Viking — or at least been curious about the rich history of Norse tradition — Assassins Creed Valhalla is a must-play. And it's 50 percent off for Labor Day! You compete as Eivor of the Raven clan, and you fight and explore your way through Dark Age–era Norway and England. It's a stunning game filled with gorgeous graphics, brilliant writing, and challenging combat — plus an expansive story-scape that you'll be itching to explore.
"I was hoping for an open-world adventure with tons of content, and I wasn't disappointed," a shopper reported. "After 100 hours, I still haven't finished the main story, because I keep finding other stuff I want to see and do! I played Odyssey for months until the min/maxing equipment got to me and felt more like Diablo than Assassin's Creed. Valhalla fixed this. All weapons are unique and you could go the whole game with your starting equipment if you want. If you want to get sucked into an adventure and forget...I highly recommend."

Time to get all the sand out from between the seats! Just grab the ThisWorx Car Vacuum Cleaner from the trunk, plug it into your car’s 12v outlet and clean like a pro. Thanks to a HEPA filter, this gadget also eradicates allergens to keep your car healthy and safe. Just think of all the money you’ll save by not having to get your interior cleaned at the car wash!
The hand vac includes three different attachments, including a brush nozzle that'll dislodge pet hair and those stubborn, stuck-on spills.

"This thing is awesome!" a shopper declared. "I own a 2018 Dodge Durango that sadly does not have leather seats. I own three dogs, and it is just a nightmare pulling out my extension cord to vacuum my truck. I can now just plug this little guy into my 12v car outlet and I’m good to go!"

"When I started teaching on Zoom, I had to look at myself all day and noticed that I had an actual bald spot about two inches back from my hairline right where my bangs ended, so every time I looked down, it was big as day!" a shopper noted. "After a few months of using this, it's really gone! Before, the hair all around there was really sparse, and now there's hair all over there. This is the only change I made. I can also see the difference in my husband's thinning hair. His bald spot is less noticeable. I hope it keeps working!"

Isaacson recommends New Balance sneakers due to their comfort and support, while Dr. Nelya Lobkova agrees that the brand is “great for prevention [of] generalized foot soreness.”
It's not hard to see why the shoe is so popular: It has a cushioned memory foam insert for extra padding on your feet, yet they're cloud-like and lightweight.
"This sneaker is so cute! I received many compliments," a shopper shared. "The color is neutral for my work uniform. The insole is very comfortable because I do a lot of walking. They're very light also."
