While you’re busy drinking up every last drop of summer, our online shopping experts will be over here doing recon on some of the best sales of summer: Labor Day Sales!

Labor Day is Monday, September 2, 2019 this year, which means that the deals will start rolling out so soon. And don’t worry—though the holiday typically signifies the end of the summer holiday, the deals will be so good that you’ll almost forget this fact.

We can confirm that, per usual, the best deals will come courtesy of Macy’s on this US holiday.

But before we get into that—did you know that the store is having their Black Friday in July event, which features pages of Flash Sales, free shipping on all orders through 7/8 and an extra 25% off select items with code JULY at checkout right now? Yes, it’s so good!

The promotion ends July 14, so when it does you’ll need something to look forward to. Here’s everything you need to know about the Macy’s Labor Day Sale:

What Is It

The yearly event typically features an extra 20% off with a coupon code at checkout, as well as free shipping over a certain purchase amount ($49, $75 or $99).

In 2018, they had up to 70% off sale and clearance items, plus an extra 10%, 15%, or 20% off select items with code WKND at checkout.

In 2017, they had an extra 20% off with code LBDAY, as well as free shipping on orders over $49.

In 2015, they offered an extra 20% off.

In 2014, they had an extra 20% off, plus free shipping on $75.

In 2011, it was up to 25% off with code MACYSFF at checkout, plus a free gift offer, 10% off home items, free shipping on orders over $99, $8 flat rate shipping and deals like $15 off $50, and $25 off $100.

In 2009, it was an extra 30-40-% off clearance, plus an extra 15% off All Day Pass.

Based off years and years of Labor Day Sale promotions, we can anticipate that Macy’s will offers an additional 20-30% off this year, as well as free shipping over $49.

Free Shipping

In addition to the extra 20% off coupon code, Macy’s typically offers free shipping on Labor Day over certain purchase amounts.

For the last two years they’ve offered free shipping over $49, so we can anticipate that they will match that promotion in 2019.

When Is It

Historically, the sale has started a few days before the holiday weekend and lasted through 11:59pm EST on Labor Day.

Based off past promotions, we can anticipate that the sale will be valid through Monday, September 3, 2019.
