Labor Day sales tend to be the best holiday weekend sales of the year, but some deals are better than others.

This year, the best buys include clothing, appliances and mattresses, according to the experts at DealNews. So, we’ve rounded up some of the best deals on these items this holiday weekend.

Don’t stop at sale prices, though. You can pretty much always boost your savings by going through a cash-back website. Rakuten.com, for example, is offering triple cash back on purchases from many stores over the long weekend.
