What discounts should you look for over Labor Day Weekend?

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Aug 27, 2014 - UPDATED: Aug 27, 2014

Labor Day is a big weekend for travel, but a lot of people will be hitting the road in search of bargains.

Which deals should you target over the next few days?

First, start with gasoline. AAA said the current price of gas is down 15 cents a gallon, compared to this time last year.

Next, Kiplinger.com said look for the appliances that help you put food on the table. Discounts can be up to 45 percent on major appliances.

Also, experts said bicycles go on sale this time of year, as well as camping gear and patio furniture.

Last year, Target and Walmart took up to 75 percent off patio furniture over Labor Day and discounts look to be in the same range this year.

Mattresses are also going on sale this weekend, with discounts up to 60 percent off from Sears. Macy's is making mattresses cheaper as well.

A Maytag dryer is selling for $380 at Lowe's. That's about $170 off the regular price.

Abercrombie & Fitch is offering up to 60 percent off everything in stores and online. Some jeans are only $39.
