Labor Day sales: Experts say many customers are missing deals

If you are looking for a deal this Labor Day weekend, you may want to rethink your shopping list. 122513 christmas shopping 1

The savings experts at Offers.com say many shoppers are planning to buy the wrong items during Labor Day sales — ultimately costing them money.

Offers surveyed more than 1,500 shoppers and found many planned to buy clothing and electronics this weekend. But the best deals will likely be on mattresses, appliances, and outdoor furniture, Offers said.

That’s because many retailers are looking to clear out those items to make room for holiday and winter merchandise.

Shoppers planned to spend an average of $125 over the long weekend, the survey found. Professionals and parents are expected to spend more than the average consumer, according to the survey.
